Do you write comedic or light fantasy? Interested in cross-promotion? Want to join an author’s team? Then here me out.
In the near future, I’m planning on launching an author’s team designated to comedic fantasy writers and light fantasy writers exclusively. The purpose of this team is to provide support for those who write and publish within this niche genre by creating an author’s team page on each member’s blog that includes information about every member of the group. Team pages should include the following information on each member:
- Brief bio
- Titles (with images and links if possible)
- Links to their social media sites
That’s it. Pretty simple right. And to keep things simple, I will maintain contact with the group via group e-mails. Don’t worry, it will not get spammy. The only notifications you’ll receive is when a member of the group seeks promotion and when a new member needs added to your author’s page. As team leader, I would encourage (but not require) members to promote each other via posts or tweets on their own social media websites. Eventually, I would also expect authors to include at the back of their ebooks a page dedicated to recommended reading in which they could provide titles with links to works by members of their group that are similar to their own.
The idea is to increase awareness of our genre and each others’ works via cross-promotion. Members will benefit from the extra exposure and support of authors in their genre.
My goal is to recruit at least 5 members starting out and then allow it to grow from there. Please share this post and help me get the word out! The more the merrier. **Note** all new members will be screened by myself prior to joining the group, and can be terminated from the group via vote if they abuse the system in any way.
If you are interested in joining the team, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with the words “Comedic Fantasy Author Team” in the regarding lines. In a few weeks, I’ll be sending a brief survey to potential members via e-mail to determine if you are a good fit for the group.
Hopefully, I’ll be hearing from you soon!
