How would you like to read all my new releases and upcoming titles completely for free?
In what’s probably the best deal I’m ever going to offer, I’m currently building a list of Advance Reviewers. Advance Reviewers will receive upcoming A. Vivian Vane titles in advance, completely free, in exchange for posting their honest reviews on Amazon.com.
The Advance Reviewer Program
Here’s how this works:
1. Roughly 1-2 weeks before public release of a new A. Vivian Vane title, Advance Reviewers will receive a link to a complete, formatted PDF version of the ebook. This will be the same document that paid purchasers receive when the book goes live.
2. Included in the email with the ebook will be a link to the Amazon item page. (In some cases the book may still be in pre-order, meaning reviews cannot be posted; I will include the release date in the email so reviewers know when they can post reviews.)
3. Reviewers will have one week from the book’s release date to post a review on Amazon.
Reviews need not be five-star, although it’s always appreciated. (The way the Amazon system is weighted, anything less than four stars hurts the title more than it helps, so please reserve those ratings for books that you thought were incomplete or full of errors, rather than just not quite to your taste.)
Reviewers should never feel pressured to praise a book they didn’t enjoy, but this is at heart a promotional program. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it! I will remove reviewers from the program if they are regularly posting negative or unflattering feedback.
Reviewers will continue to receive advance titles for free so long as they continue to post useful, accurate reviews. Reviewers who skip reviewing multiple titles in a row will be removed from the list.
How to Become an Advance Reviewer
I am currently only creating openings for ten reviewers. If you’d like to sign up, email me at email@example.com, subject heading “Advance Reviewer,” and include in the body of your email:
- the email address at which you wish to receive your advance copies and notifications
- the Amazon account name with which you will be posting reviews (so that I can verify reviews have been posted)
- any “hard no” kinks or gender pairings that you cannot comfortably read about or comment on (if there are a lot of these, I probably can’t use you — my books are quite wide-ranging!)
If you’re selected, I will reply to let you know that you’ve been added to the Advance Reviewer list. You’ll begin receiving preview copies within the next week or two!
This is, as I said above, probably the single best deal I will ever offer my readers, so don’t hesitate. If you’d like to become an Advance Reviewer, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org today!
