Tee Shirts for Authors & Readers

teeLike a lot of authors, I work at home and my uniform is a tee and sweat shorts/sweatpants. I was sick of my usual collection and bought some new designs from TeePublic.

I LOVE the quality of their tri-blend tees! I ordered a size larger than I needed, they didn't really shrink much at all so they ended up perfect, and they have some shape so I don't look like a square blob all the time. 

I highly recommend!

They have a ton of other styles, as well as mugs, pillows, phone cases and things like that.

I made a store featuring a bunch of the coolest author and reading tees here:

SHOP FOR FUN TEES

Swing on by and get yourself or someone else some cool tee shirts to freshen your writing or reading wardrobe!

DREAM HOUSE

P.I. Dev Haskell is minding his own business, looking out the window, when a pink Mercedes convertible pulls to the curb. His old flame, Barbie Dahl, a surgically enhanced Barbie Doll look alike, gets out of the car. Barbie Dahl, the same woman who dumped Dev on a trip to Las Vegas. Now, she’s back in town and needs Dev’s help. Apparently her extensive Barbie collection is missing, along with Arnold Wazinski, AKA Ken Carson, Barbie Doll’s significant other…

Fortunately, Dev comes up with a plan. But then Barbie gets involved and decides ‘Ken’ is going to pay, BIG TIME!

Another hilariously delightful Dev Haskell tale.

Sit back, enjoy, and realize things in life could be worse… A lot worse!

Morton, Dev’s Golden Retriever, provides a dose of sanity.

”Faricy is America’s hottest new mystery writer… and Dev Haskell is one of the looniest and most enjoyable characters inhabiting the world of fictional private investigators out there today” ~ The Dirty Lowdown

I started the site because it's hard to get return on investment from most of the marketing sites out there and there are too many people trying to rip us off. The whole idea was to help authors like myself, so I'm always trying to come up with new ideas for all of us.


I'm always available for any questions you might have - Thank you!

Typo Killer - Get a Book Here

When you're done, report it finished here. You'll get an entry in this month's drawing for Amazon gift cards for each book you finish!

 

Spring Eclipse Riddle - by C Farren - Paranormal Cozy Mystery

A paranormal cozy mystery, book 2 in a series. There is a murder in the magical town of Magpie Cove that makes no sense.

The High Witch's daughter-in-law has been murdered inside a magically sealed, locked room. How did it happen, who did it, and can Bea find the killer before they strike again?

Bea's brush with death has given her an unusual ability, one which connects her to someone from the other side. All is well and good until the residents of Magpie Cove find out and want to use her to contact their own relatives.

Meanwhile, there is a murder that makes no sense at all. The High Witch's daughter-in-law is murdered inside a magically sealed, locked room. How did it happen, who did it, and will the deceased reach out to Bea for help?

TYPO KILLER

It seems no matter how many editors we run my books through, there are always a few typos that sneak through.  This is no reflection on our editors --- just proof of how impossible it is to get a book perfect.

I love it when readers send me emails letting me know they spotted a typo so I can fix it. If you do too, I have a great new service for you!

I asked my Beta Readers -- my elite eschelon of AXP reader members -- if they'd be interested in free books in order to search for typos, and nearly 300 across all genres responded with an enthusiastic YES!

I'm going to be incentivizing these readers with prizes and you reap the rewards! Clean up your books until they're pristine and meet my best readers in the process --- real gems.

DETAILS

  • You'll get as many eyeballs as sign up to read your book --- could be a couple, could be a LOT more. Beta requests, for example, generally get between seven and thirty readers.
  • The typo killers will talk to you directly and report typos directly to you. You can ask them to do this in anyway you see fit. New manuscript? You can send them a WORD doc. Old book? You can ask them to read a MOBI and jot down their findings. Whatever works best for the both of you.
  • GET BONUS REVIEWS! Once they read the book, why wouldn't they review? Just ask them! Note: They are not required to review and the prizes they qualify for as a Typo Killers have no bearing on reviewing. They are not being incentivized to review. Once you know them as readers though, there's no harm in asking.
  • Because these are my best people, they're wonderful readers to have relationships with. They could end up on your street teams, become regular reviewers for you, become fans!

Typo killer... Qu'est-ce que c'est...

Could you be a TYPO KILLER?

Like Editing? Is Grammar Your Game?

Fact is, no matter how many editors we authors run our books through, there are always a few typos that sneak through.  We could use your help to find them!

You'll only sign up for books you’re interested in reading - No obligation!

AND as a bonus, you’ll be entered in a monthly drawing to win Amazon gift cards! ONE ENTRY FOR EACH BOOK YOU FINISH. You’ll mark the book finished and report your findings.

Just sign up to be added to our list of Typo Killers and we'll let you know when we have books ready!

 

Harlem's Ross Agency Mysteries

I've been enchanted with books from my earliest days and writing stories since second grade. My writing took a turn from animal lore when I discovered Sherlock Holmes in seventh grade. Many fine practitioners of detective and other fiction influenced me over the years. Perhaps the biggest single influence was my long-standing love affair with newspapers. I worked for professional papers in Chicago since my late teen years. Pursuing a doctorate in African history and a career in the United States Foreign Service reinforced my interest in people, places, and writing. To date, I've published over sixty fan fiction stories since 2012. You can learn more in this interview HERE.

Readers often ask me what sparks the ideas for my mystery fiction. The origins of the Ross Agency lie in a question I asked myself: who helps the little guy? In answer, I created this mystery series. The Ross Agency provides fix-it services to people in their hard-scrabble neighborhood. The three private investigators look into puzzles, losses, disputes, and tensions that fall below the radar of the police. Each book in the series focuses on solving a murder (or two) while delving further into the tangle of relationships that bind the detectives, their friends, and neighbors. Bringing murderers to justice is the driver of each story. But the ultimate puzzle in this series is unwrapping the mystery of private eye SJ Rook himself. To learn more about the Ross Agency, check out this interview I conducted with Rook.

I enjoy hearing from readers. Visit my web site, "Neighborhood Noir,' at www.deliapitts.com. Follow me on Instagram at deliapitts50.

Right now I am working on a fourth novel called Pauper and Prince in Harlem. To give you a special preview of this new story, I've included the first chapter at the end of eBook and print versions of Black and Blue in Harlem. I hope you enjoy this sneak peek at the story I'm working on right now.

You can see the whole series here!

Dragon's Flight

Dragon's FlightAuthor: N. A. Fulton 

"I and my 2,883 sisters, brothers, and half-siblings are heirs to some of the richest families in the world. We are also genetically engineered freaks..." — Allison Kemp, Foundation Heir

Allison faces the challenge of a lifetime when she and those she loves are targeted by RealHuman, a cult determined to protect the human race from the rise of a genetically engineered species.

In this, the first book of the Fortunate Monsters saga, the war for our planet begins. If you loved The Hunger Games and Twilight, you will love Dragon's Flight.

"You all know the story. We have been front-page news on and off for more than a decade. Every time one of us hangs ourselves, ends up in jail, or starts college at fourteen, it all gets dredged up again. But this is the year when I have finally been told all the facts and I have seen all the evidence for myself. I will tell you what I know to be true..."

Time Travel By Design Series

Time Travel By Design SeriesAuthor: Bella Street 

ROMANCE GOES RETRO:

Nashvillians Olivia Haugen and Kyle Daniels know exactly why they'd never get together. He's too staid and persnickety and she's too flighty and artsy. But that doesn't stop Constance Presley from trying. She owns a salvage warehouse that not only hold antiques from several eras, but a portal to other time periods as well. From Detroit to Scotland, Constance is determined to get these two together...whether they like it or not!

Mid-Century Mayhem:

Modern-day Nashville and 1950s Detroit clash worse than an IKEA futon and a plaid Barcalounger when a free-spirited interior designer and a strait-laced automotive engineer find themselves in another time. Olivia Haugen and Kyle Daniels have no idea why they've ended up in 1954 Michigan, but it's probably not because of all the swank mid-century furnishings. Discovering the reason might have something to do with a wily salvage warehouse owner and her not-so-little shop of secrets.

Gothic Revival:

Olivia Haugen and Kyle Daniels are barely on speaking terms in modern-day Nashvillenot helped by Kyles cranky aunt Constance whose apparent sole purpose in life is to see them walk down the aisle. Olivia and Kyle end up taking a trip down an aisle all right, the one to the magic portal in Constances salvage warehouse. They end up in the dark and humid backyard of a place where Gothic secrets are as thick as the Spanish moss draping the live oaks, and bumps in the night give birth to long-dormant nightmares.

Regency Requiem:

When a search for family answers goes totally awry, Olivia Haugen and Kyle Daniels are left with more questions than answers about their past...their future...and whether or not Constance was ever actually related to Elvis Presley.

GDPR

GDPR Concerns

AuthorsXP.com has been following the laws reinforced by GDPR since inception.  We take the privacy and security of our readers and authors seriously.

What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?

GDPR is a EU privacy law approved by the European Commission in 2016, that will be enforced beginning on May 25, 2018.

GDPR expands the rights of individuals in the European Union whose data is used for marketing purposes. Per regulations, consent must be freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous.

Does AuthorsXP.com Comply with GDPR?

We've always followed privacy laws and will continue to in the future.

We only collect information necessary for site to function. (i.e, we don't require physical addresses of authors or readers unless we need to send a specific winner a phsycial copy of a book, for example.) We inform readers that their emails will be shared with the authors participating in giveaways. We remove readers information from our databases upon request. We give readers the opportunity to remove themselves from collected lists before these lists are shared with authors. We maintain electronic records of subscribers consent to join email lists, should an author ever be required to produce it. We also encourage authors to only use GDPR-compliant email marketing systems and otherwise be in compliance themselves. However, please note we cannot give legal advice and do not endorse the use of any particular email program from the perspective of GDPR. 

Right to be forgotten: Upon request, we'll delete any subscribers information from our database. Right to object: Readers may decide not to receive emails from participating authors. Right to rectification: Subscribers can update information upon request via email or most cases, update preferences from inside their accounts. Right of access: Any  subscriber may contact us directly to request access to information we hold about them. Right of portability: Authors may access details of purchase history by visiting the author user menu, and you may obtain any past subscriber lists you've received from us by emailing us.


Read and Review FAQ

SIGN UP!

 

In short, AXP is a "dating service" between readers and authors. These are real people, not employees. I can't force them to do anything. These are not paid reviewers (that would be against Amazon TOS). 

Important things to know/RULES:

After Signing Up You Must Add Your Book to the AuthorsXP Library!

  • Login to AuthorsXP  https://authorsxp.com/login
  • Click on "Add My Books to the AXP Library" in the USER MENU that appears after logging in.  https://authorsxp.com/add-my-book/add
  • Fill out the form to add your book. It will be approved and added to the permanent book database.
  • If your book is already in there, you don't have to add it again
  • ADD A WAY FOR PEOPLE TO GET YOUR BOOK FOR FREE

There are now fields (at the bottom of your library listing form mentioned above) in your book description for you to add Bookfunnel links or upload files. These files will show up directly in the reader's dashboard so you don't have to try so hard to email them the book or the links only to have them go to their spam.  

Elite Reader Dashboard

In the USER MENU area, you also have a dashboard where you can login and see who has requested your book, who has reviewed (including any comments they might have left) and remind readers to please read your book by clicking a button. 

 https://authorsxp.com/sadmin/eliteauthor_dashboard.php

 

YOUR 'TO DO' LIST

1. Add your book to the AXP Library so I can activate it for reviewer. https://authorsxp.com/add-my-book/add

2. In the library, add a file(s) or link(s) for readers to get your book for free.

3. When you receive notice of a request, you can respond to them any way you like. They will be sent a link to their dashboard to download your book though, so you don't have to send them the file. 

4. You can trigger a "did you get my book?" mailing from your ELITE REVIEWER DASHBOARD if you think your emails aren't getting through. https://authorsxp.com/sadmin/eliteauthor_dashboard.php 


FAQ

There is no guarantee reviews received will be good. These are honest reviews by real people. But since you can talk to the reviewers directly, you can politely request that if they don't like your book, please don't review.

Readers should understand they must note on their review that they received a free copy. (Per FTC/Amazon rules) I've told them but be sure to remind them.

While you can ask if a reader is in the Amazon KU program and if they'd be willing to read the book through that, authors may NOT require or ask reviewers to BUY their book. Sales are not the point of this program. Readers DO report such actions to me and authors will be removed from the program for this. 

Any book is eligible, though AXP reserves the right to refuse a book.

If you don't receive at least 8 reviews through the Elite Readers, we'll run your book again and get you more reviewers. If for some reason you still aren't having any luck you'll be refunded for the missing reviews. This rarely happens but some books are tougher than others!


TIPS FOR INTERACTING WITH READERS

DO NOT ASK THEM TO BUY THE BOOK. Sales are NOT the point of the review program and this will anger the readers who signed up for a free book.

Make an email template for sending to readers and save yourself some time!

If people haven't posted after two weeks, feel free to poke at them.


I'M NOT GETTING REVIEWS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

1. If you log into the site and then go to USER MENU you'll see a link for Elite Reader Dashboard where you can see your chart of requestors. You can hit a button there to remind people you haven't heard from them. This email is then sent from my system instead of your email, so there's a better chance it will get through spam filters. If that doesn't raise the dead, let me know and I'll send them a note from my personal email asking them what's up, did they get the book, are they almost done, etc.

2. These are real people and not employees and each person has his/her way of doing things. (I wish I could have paid review employees but we'd be breaking Amazon rules). So between people's schedules and spam filters, there are a lot of reasons your results could be delayed. Do stay in touch with readers but don't hound them.

3. The elite readers you see on your dashboard with "NO" for released means that person has too many books outstanding. You can send your book to them if you want, but I give ELITE readers FIVE book requests before I cut them off. To continue, they have to review the ones they have. So this person might have just fallen behind or they might be a bad bet for getting a review.... If you want, you can send them an email and let them know something like:

"I see you requested my book for review through the AuthorsXP Elite Reader's group, but the release status is set to "NO" because you have too many books outstanding for reviews. You can have more books released to you (including mine) by reviewing your outstanding books and marking them reviewed in your Elite Reader Dashboard located here: http://AXPBooks.com --- if the books you have outstanding are not books you want to read to review, you can mark them "not reviewing" and that will free your queue as well!"

WHAT ABOUT AMAZON?

Amazons Review Guidelines (10/3/16) state 

Book authors and publishers may continue to provide free or discounted copies of their books to readers, as long as the author or publisher does not require a review in exchange or attempt to influence the review. https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=14279631  That means you can still give away free copies in the HOPES of getting reviews, but you can't give away free copies "in exchange for review."

Additional Perks

  1. You'll get a permanent spot in our book database and a temporary advertisement on our site
  2. You expose your books to more readers and possibly get more reviews and fans
  3. Great for getting "minimum reviews" required by promotion sites for new books

SERIES EVENT

Please fill out the below form. This is how I will be able to get you the MOST out of this event, so PLEASE fill it out carefully!

  • GENRES: Click genres that fit your series... IMPORTANT! DON'T SEE YOUR GENRE? PLEASE TELL ME! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  These are the genres entrants will click to show their preferences, too.
  • LINKS: Enter the links where people can buy your book/series. Use the link to the FIRST book in your series for any of the retailers OR for the Amazon link please use the link to your SERIES PAGE if you have one.
  • SPECIAL: Write the short sentence you'd like me to use when I send my special newsletter to entrants at the end of the event. For instance, if you were John Steinbeck:  "Get a FREE copy of Grapes of Wrath!"  Special must be available AT LEAST on April 10 - which is when that email will go out.
  • SPECIAL LINK - Paste the link where people should go to GET that special (if it is a newsletter sign up for a free book, or a link to your first book on Amazon which is free, etc.)
  • If you don't want to offer any sort of additional special for that after-event mailing, leave it blank and I'll just send the link to your series. 
  • SERIES DESCRIPTION: If you'd like to include a short punchy series description to grab people's attention, please enter it here. Try to stick to 1-2 sentences.

I'll pull graphics from Amazon and have you something to see soon! Thank you for entering and let's all promote HARD to make this a HUGE SUCCESS for all of us!

Confused about this "Special?" As a bonus I'm sending out a special newsletter to all the entrants -- a sort of guide to all the series so they can keep it and hopefully go buy (because it is impossible to forcefeed them all that info during their entry).  The ability for the author to add a special incentive to this newsletter is a bonus. You can do it or not. It isn't part of the usual event process (you only giveaway 3 books to the winners officially) - this is just a way to extra nudge people into visiting your series.

There is also the book fair where you can offer a book special (free or 99c) available ALL week that entrants will see after entering).

Author Websites & Newsletter Solutions

Need an author website? Need to seriously update the one you have?

Don't struggle with some awful "do it yourself" web site template. Your time is worth MORE than that! 

Amy Vansant (me, the owner of this site) is not only an author and a marketer whose been helping to sell her own books and yours, but I've also owned a web development firm for over 20 years. (http://VansantCreations.com

Pros of Having Me Do Your Website

  • I'm a fellow author, so I know what you need.
  • I've been doing this forever so I know what I'm doing --- what works and what doesn't
  • I'm not free like some do-it-yourself sites, but I also won't give you an infuriating website that doesn't do half the things you wish it did and looks terrible.
  • I'm lovely with which to work. :)
  • You can add tons of features, including your own newsletter email collection/emailing system (break away from MailChimp!), photo galleries, online ordering, domain emails (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and more.

Sites are all content management-based, which means you can make the updates yourself going forward if you like, or you can ask me to do it - whatever works with your time and budget.

Sites for authors usually range from $1000-$1500 depending on the size and features you want.

 


Having MailChimp Woes? Need to Refine How You Send Your Newslsetters?

Tired of paying every time you mail? Tired of not being able to import reader lists you've gathered through promotions? Tired of the restrictions imposed by MailChimp and other third party mailing systems? YOU can control your own email.

In addition to building your site, I can install mailing solutions that will:

  • collect emails from visitors
  • allow you to send newsletters without restrictions
  • design custom newsletter templates

Being in control of your own emailing system gives you the flexibility to grow without restrictions.

Street Team FAQ

Take Your Career to the Next Level - Time to build a Street Team!

What's a street team?

A street team helps an author hype his or her books. They come in especially handy during giveaways and new book launches.

  • They promote the author and his/her books on social media
  • Review advanced copies on Amazon, GoodReads and other book retailers
  • Help spread the word in groups the author can't access (authors usually aren't allowed to promote their own books in reader groups)

Street Team Survey

Is it time to build a real "street team" for your books and YOU?

As usual, new things on AXP come from me realizing I need something.

I decided to become an overnight phenomenon *cough.* :)

And by "overnight phenomenon" I mean I'm thinking long term. Overnight phenomenons are rarely overnight - it comes from building a strong base (Like the mailing list builders that have been doing so well) and then weaponizing that base to spread the word. < --- Hopefully about my books and not about how I mix metaphors.

So, I'm building a street team for my Pineapple Port series. I asked the AXP readers if they'd be interested in joining (so far, just people from my Elite Reader group and then my own list on my website.) Looking really good so far...

Here's my AXP Steet Team Request Page so you can see what I mean...

My question for you is:

  1. Would you like assistance building a street team like this? (if yes, fill out the blue form on this page and answer these questions) 

  2. Would you want help finding members?

  3. Would you like help setting up a street team Facebook page to get things rolling, including header graphics, etc.?

  4. Would you like a service where AXP provides ideas on a regular basis for street team missions and fun events that you can share with your team to keep them enamored with you? 

Let me know so I can figure out if there is a need. Also, let me know if you have other ideas and wants in the comments (and any questions).

Thanks!

Small Town. Big Murder.

The number one secret to my success as a bodyguard? Staying under the radar. But when a wildly public disaster blew up my career and reputation, my perfect, solo life took a hard left turn to crazy town. And to bodies. Lots of dead bodies.

I thought my tiny hometown of Nowhere would be the ideal out-of-the-way refuge to wait out the media storm.

It wasn’t.

My little brother had moved into a treehouse. The obscure mountain town had decided to attract tourists with the world’s largest collection of big things... Yes, Nowhere now has the world’s largest pizza cutter. And lawn flamingo. And ball of yarn...

And then I stumbled over a dead body.  

All the evidence points to my brother being the bad guy. I may have been out of his life for a while—okay, five years—but I know he’s no killer. Can I clear my brother before he becomes Nowhere’s next Big Fatality?

Murder mystery game included in the back of the book!

Street Team Demo

Apply for the Peacetaker Series Street Team!

Author Edita Petrick is looking to create a STREET TEAM for her ongoing "Peacetaker" Series.

What is Peacetaker?

  • The Peacetaker series is an action/adventure thriller with fantasy-paranormal elements, history, mythology and legends
  • Clean, suitable for teen-and-up. There is a suggestion of some violence, though not overly descriptive.

These books would appeal to any reader who loves mystery and adventure with a touch of supernatural elements. Each story is intelligently knitted, with twists and turns that keep the reader hooked since the very beginning. The two lead characters start off as total strangers. Carter, is a hard-shelled, lone ranger type; a Justice Department contractor with a painful past. Dr. Stella Hunter is a quirky, conflicted academic and published expert in mythology and ancient legends. The pairing of this unlikely duo makes for interesting and entertaining reading.

However, out of necessity their bond and slight romantic connection becomes something deeper as the series progresses.

Each book of the series is a standalone, but there is always an underlying ‘peace-taker’ issue driving some parts of the story.

You can see the whole series on Amazon.

or visit Edita's Website

Here's a quick description of book one: Ribbons of Death

A career soldier who survived a deadly riot in Cairo, and a reclusive mythology expert from Montana, race against time to find the product of legends that’s cutting a bloody path across the continent.
***
One snowy evening, a stranger with a horribly scarred face stomps on the porch of Stella Hunter’s house, holding her latest book of myths and legends. He points to the bloody fingerprints of the book’s now deceased owner, marking a passage of the Peacetaker myth. When she asks how he came by the book, he tells her he took the controversial book from the lifeless hand of a traffic fatality in Cairo. And suddenly, Stella could swear that somewhere a clock started ticking down to doomsday. After all, the fate of humanity depends on whether she was right or wrong when she wrote her infamous book.

Books:

  • Ribbons of Death – Book 1
  • The Harmony Scroll – Book 2
  • The Byzantine Connection – Book 3
  • Arachne’s Challenge – Book 4
  • Doomsday Hand – Book 5

HeartOfLegend eBook finalHeart of a Legend  - Martina Boone - Historical Fiction, Romance, Romance-Contemporary, Women's Fiction

A magical story of love and redemption set against the glittering backdrop of a blockbuster historical film being shot on location in Wales.

Kath Cameron’s acting career plunged off a cliff thanks to her divorce from mega-star ex-husband, but she has one last shot at a reboot when the lead in the Welsh version of Braveheart has to be recast weeks into production. On location in Wales, Kath finds herself working around the clock with the film’s undeniably gorgeous director, and Dai Rhys has a knack for getting past all her defenses. Falling for him is the last thing she can afford when her whole career is on the line.

Dai Rhys left the British army and took up acting as part of his PTSD treatment. After a decade as a Hollywood star, he is finally directing the film he has spent years writing and developing. Losing one star was a major setback, and he absolutely can’t risk more complications by getting involved with Kath. Now if only his heart would listen to that advice.

Dai’s always had a protective streak two-miles wide, and Kath’s smile and vulnerability make him ache to heal her broken spirit. Both Kath and Dai have been married before, and they know how fragile relationships can be. When the film is over, they will be on different continents again, so this may be their only opportunity to find out whether it’s attraction or love that lies between them. But with the film and damage to their reputations at risk, can they dare to take the chance?

ELITE READ & REVIEW FAQ

Review Process

In short, AXP is a "dating service" between readers and authors. These are real people, not employees. I can't force them to do anything. These are not paid reviewers. 

YOUR 'TO DO' LIST

1. Add your book to the AXP Library so I can activate it for reviewer. https://authorsxp.com/add-my-book/add


2. In the library, add a file(s) or link(s) for readers to get your book for free.

3. When you receive notice of a request, you can respond to them any way you like. They will be sent a link to their dashboard to download your book though, so you don't have to send them the file. 

4. You can trigger a "did you get my book?" mailing from your ELITE REVIEWER DASHBOARD if you think your emails aren't getting through. https://authorsxp.com/sadmin/eliteauthor_dashboard.php 


FAQ

There is no guarantee reviews received will be good. These are honest reviews by real people. But since you can talk to the reviewers directly, you can politely request that if they don't like your book, please don't review.

While you can ask if a reader is in the Amazon KU program and if they'd be willing to read the book through that, authors may NOT require or ask reviewers to BUY their book. DO NOT ASK THEM TO BUY THE BOOK. Sales are NOT the point of the review program and this will anger the readers who signed up for a free book. Readers DO report such actions to me and authors will be removed from the program for this. 

Any book is eligible, though AXP reserves the right to refuse a book.

If you don't receive at least 8 reviews through the Elite Readers, we'll run your book again and get you more reviewers. If for some reason you still aren't having any luck you'll be refunded for the missing reviews. This rarely happens but some books are tougher than others!


TIPS FOR INTERACTING WITH READERS

Make an email template for sending to readers and save yourself some time!

If people haven't posted after two weeks, feel free to poke at them.


I'M NOT GETTING REVIEWS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

1. If you log into the site and then go to USER MENU you'll see a link for Elite Reader Dashboard where you can see your chart of requestors. You can hit a button there to remind people you haven't heard from them. This email is then sent from my system instead of your email, so there's a better chance it will get through spam filters. If that doesn't raise the dead, let me know and I'll send them a note from my personal email asking them what's up, did they get the book, are they almost done, etc.

2. These are real people and not employees and each person has his/her way of doing things. (I wish I could have paid review employees but we'd be breaking Amazon rules). So between people's schedules and spam filters, there are a lot of reasons your results could be delayed. Do stay in touch with readers but don't hound them.

3. The elite readers you see on your dashboard with "NO" for released means that person has too many books outstanding. You can send your book to them if you want, but I give ELITE readers FIVE book requests before I cut them off. To continue, they have to review the ones they have. So this person might have just fallen behind or they might be a bad bet for getting a review.... If you want, you can send them an email and let them know something like:

"I see you requested my book for review through the AuthorsXP Elite Reader's group, but the release status is set to "NO" because you have too many books outstanding for reviews. You can have more books released to you (including mine) by reviewing your outstanding books and marking them reviewed in your Elite Reader Dashboard located here: http://AXPBooks.com --- if the books you have outstanding are not books you want to read to review, you can mark them "not reviewing" and that will free your queue as well!"

WHAT ABOUT AMAZON?

Amazons Review Guidelines (10/3/16) state 

Book authors and publishers may continue to provide free or discounted copies of their books to readers, as long as the author or publisher does not require a review in exchange or attempt to influence the review. https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=14279631  That means you can still give away free copies in the HOPES of getting reviews, but you can't give away free copies "in exchange for review.

Thank you - Super Reader!

To correct this, mark books you've reviewed in your Dashboard.  You can also mark books in the dashboard off as "NOT REVIEWING" this will close that book and clear slots for new books. You do NOT have to read or review a requested book if you hate it! 

An author asked me to buy his/her book and now I'm turned off on the whole thing.

My reviews are being pulled off Amazon.

Write Amazon and let them know you're not a spammer, just a reviewer! Sometimes their security systems mistake a real reader for someone trying to trick the system with fake reviews. I've heard sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and letting them know the issue works.

Help Authors - Reader Polls

Let us know your thoughts!

Edita A. Petrick is wondering if the covers of her books convey the right feel for her series. Can you check them out and let her know your feedback? If you don't read the genre she writes in for one or more of the series, just skip that one, no problem!

She's offering a FREE BOOK of your choice just to hear your input!

Just look at the covers below, and let us know in the form if they capture your attention, if they would encourage you to try them and/or if you feel they represent well the genre!

(Clicking on any cover will pop them up larger for you to flip through)

Reader Polls & Surveys - Help Requests

On the fence about something you're writing? 

Wish you could bounce two cover possibilities off of thousands of readers?

Just looking for an excuse to bump your free downloads during an Amazon freebee promo?

With AuthorsXP.com POLL service, you can poll thousands of readers about whatever you like!

How to Use this Opportunity...

1. Answering Questions

It can be used to poll/survey readers if you have a conundrum. So, if you can't decide between two cover ideas...or just want to see if people like one...or want to know how much cursing people can deal with...curious about a plot point that makes you worry, etc.

Poll AXP's readers about:

  • Reading habits
  • Cover styles and A/B examples
  • Plot line ideas
  • Their various preferences
  • Character quirks
  • Use of sex and/or profanity
  • What they'd like in return for joining your newsletter
  • Or just use this service as a thinly veiled way to get free downloads on Amazon during a freebee promotion!

2. Increase Free Downloads During Amazon Freebee Promos:

You can double whammy asking a poll, etc, by making your free gift to all poll takers a link to your free download on Amazon.

In short, you can work the system anyway you like...align it with your other promotions, etc. As long as the readers get something for their troubles!

 

Gifts help inspire people if you'd like to offer one. They can include:

1. A free download for all respondents. (FREE DOWNLOAD may coinside with a promotion you're running on Amazon/other outlets - i.e. You run a poll, after the poll you send the respondents an email with a link to your book which is free on Amazon.)

2. A drawing for a print copy(s).

3. A drawing for free copies of a single ebook.

4. Actual gifts, such as Amazon gift certificates.

What you get: 

  • All answers in a spreadsheet
  • Emails of all respondents
  • Answers to up to three questions. (Questions may have up to 3 subparts)
  • Questions can be multiple choice or you can request text answers!
  • A boost of downloads if you're running a free promotion on Amazon
  • Spotlight of you and your work on the poll page

Why this is great:

  • You can stop polling your small group of friends/author groups and reach hundreds if not thousand of readers for valuable input.
  • Boost free downloads on promotion days
  • Grow your newsletter list.
  • Introduce yourself and your work to people taking the poll.
  • Open a dialog between yourself and future fans!

 

The Problem with Mailing List Services Like MailChimp for Building Your Author Fan Base

Since starting Mailing List Builder events, which score between 500-3000+ reader emails for participating authors, I've heard that providing authors with thousands of potential new fans is sometimes actually a problem - thanks to MailChimp, MadMimi or other third party mailing list systems.

These services are restricting your ability to grow your author fan base in two ways.

1. Sheer numbers

After you have X number of subscribers on MailChimp (etc.), you need to start paying monthly for the service. You're being penalized for doing well!

2. Unsubscribe Issues

If the percentage of unsubscribes or spam reports from a mailing is more than X amount, MailChimp (etc) disapproves. The problem is, there will be unsubscribes. Usually about 1-2% for me, whenever I add a new list gathered from an AXP giveaway.

While AuthorsXP Giveaways DO warn people that by entering the giveaway they're agreeing to be added to the authors' lists, not everyone reads that disclaimer or remembers it. We're not doing anything wrong or illegal.

I've added nearly 9000 readers to my own personal mailing list and have had 600+ unsubscribes. That still leaves me with 8000+ new people and it's done wonders for me! But if I was using Mailchimp, I probably would have been flagged. They're hobbling their users to keep themselves from being flagged as spammers. I understand they don't want people buying lists and spamming thousands, but this makes Mailchimp less than great for list building!

Solutions

So what to do? 

1. Have AuthorsXP change the way we do the contests and let readers choose which author lists they'd like to be added to?

Nope.

Some contests do that, but

  • It would mean a lot less signups for participating authors
  • Many readers sign up for everyone anyway thinking it helps their chances of winning
  • Readers may still be surprised when they get their first author newsletter

I feel like better to get thousands of sign ups, lose some, and surprise some other readers with how much they like you!

2. Stop doing such a great job getting us reader emails!

Nope!

3. Add a small portion of your new list to your Mailchimp list each time you do a mailing.

Not Bad.

This will keep your unsubscribes down for each mailing, and keep you under Mailchimp's radar. It's just going to take longer.

What if you're on a system that no longer lets you import ANY lists?

LEAVE.

4. Make the first mailing to your new list a double opt-in, so you first ask readers if they really want to be added.

Meh.

Some authors do this. For me, you're going to lose a lot of people before they even have a chance to get a feel for who you are.

5. Be in charge of your own mailing lists.

Great Idea! 

There are fantastic alternatives to Mailchimp that allow you to own and work your own lists, which is what I do.

How to Be Your Own Mailing List Provider

Is your site on self-hosted WordPress CMS (content management system)?

MailPoet is a great solution for WordPress. You do NOT pay for each mailing. It's $99 per YEAR to have unlimited addresses. 

Is your site on Joomla? (CMS)

ACYMailing is my favorite mailing program of all time. The whole AuthorsXP.com web site runs on it. You do NOT pay for each mailing. It's $34 per YEAR to have unlimited addresses.

Is your site just an old fashioned HTML site your cousin did for you that isn't even phone friendly?

Come on. Cut that out. Do you want to get serious about your marketing or what? (I can help, see note below)

What if web site technology makes you cry?

I've owned a web development firm for twenty years (which is why I was able to create this website!) I can install MailPoet or ACYMailing for you and walk you through how to use them. If you don't have WordPress or Joomla, I can try and find another solution for you or create a new site for you. Just drop me a note! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Or if you know anyone who is even vaguely techy, both the programs I mentioned are very easy to setup and use. They can probably help you too!

Bottom line - if you're serious about growing your fan base - don't let MailChimp or other systems hold you back or cost you a fortune! Take control of your future.
