Have you ever thought about the important relationship that exists between an author and his readers? I have…a lot. Without readers, writing is like trying to live in a vacuum…not easy and certainly not much fun or fulfilling.

I have the rare privilege to write stories that entertain, engage and hopefully inspire other people — you, my readers. And now with today’s technology, I can do that without dealing with all the politics and constraints of the Traditional Publishing Machine.

Readers matter…a lot. Without readers, writers and authors are whistling in the wind.

So, I figured some readers might want to take a step up and become even more important part of my journey as an author by becoming part of my OBJ/WBS Launch Team. Like the old saying, “It takes a village to raise a child,” it takes other people to build a successful writing career — readers for sure, but also readers who will leave reviews, maybe share new releases with their friends, and generally believe in the author’s work.

So here’s the deal:

Sign up below to join the newly expanded Launch, Review, & Beta Reader Team, and, in return, you’ll receive:

  • Free advance preview copies of EACH NEW RELEASE – that includes books, audiobooks, short stories collections, fiction, and nonfiction.

  • PLUS, ever so often you’ll receive copies of previously released books that could benefit from a little extra reviewers’ love. After all, books have a much longer lifespan than just their initial launch time, and new reviews can keep attracting new readers.

  • Become a Beta Reader, a Recent Added Option to Play – In recent years I’ve found beta readers to be of immense value to improve the quality of the final product, a story that’s entertaining, engaging, and inspiring. And now my exclusive Launch Team members will be the first ones I invite to become beta readers which means you’ll be able to read and make suggestions on my stories before they’re published. Of course, you can pass on being a beta reader, or join in the fun as often as you like

  • My eternal gratitude. Really! Now that I’ve expanded this to the Beta Readers & Launch Team, I know more than ever how much of a difference these team members make. You will have a special place in my heart, so thank you in advance.

This is completely different from being part of my mailing list. You’ll be part of a select group of super-awesome readers. And, in addition to getting free copies of EVERYTHING I release before anyone else, you get to see exactly what impact your support has on the success of my work. In short, think of this as a VIP Membership.

If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of, there’s one main condition. Being part of the team means you’ll be asked to leave a review of the books you receive within a certain time period after receiving your copies (usually 2 to 4 weeks). As far as conditions go, I hope that’s not too bad!

Sign up below to join the newly expanded Launch, Reviewer, & Beta Reader Team, and let’s get to reading and reviewing.

Thanks for all your support!
