Happy Hump Day, WG2E-Land!
I’ve made some wonderful changes to The RG2E Featured Author Program!
After just 7 months, I’ve built The RG2E – The WG2E’s Sister Site – to a devoted fan base of over 500 readers, and we’re growing each and every month! I say 500 because that’s what our stats show as our true “sneezer” base, meaning this is the number of peeps who actively participate on the site every day (Facebook and Twitter too) and spread the news about all of the wonderful Ebooks and Authors they’re “meeting” and reading via RG2E!
And speaking of Ebooks…I’ve now Ebook Gifted over $10,000-worth of Ebooks on The RG2E and given away going on 10 Ereaders!!!
But here’s the thing…
I’ve had sooo many Authors write to me about letting them Ebook Gift their own books via RG2E so that they as the Authors get credit for Gifting Readers and not just me.
I thought about it, and I totally agree that this would be the next logical step
to growing the site for readers and for all of our fabulous RG2E Featured
So, here’s what my DH (Darling Husband) and I have come up with…
Beginning September 1st (this coming Saturday), there will no longer be a $25 Sponsorship Fee to be a Featured Author on The RG2E!!!
That’s right…it’s now FREE to be an RG2E Featured Author!!!
All that’s required for you to be an RG2E Featured Author is that you write a fabulous reader-focused post featuring your book and agree to Ebook Gift our RG2E Readers the day of your Feature. And yes, you can choose how many copies to Ebook Gift, based on your own budget.
Now that’s a great opportunity, right?!
For all of you who’ve already paid for a Sponsorship(s), no worries, I will
continue to Ebook Gift the books you’ve already signed up for at my expense on the days you’ve previously been assigned as our Featured Author.
So, here’s your chance, WG2E-Land…
Email us at rg2e(at)live(dot)com with the dates you’d like to be our RG2E Featured Author, and we’ll get you on our calendar. You can give us any dates from September 2012 thru December 2013, and as many dates as you’d like.
For example, if you’d like to feature one of your books each month, then we’ll schedule you a monthly slot. We would suggest you feature the same book no more than once per month to keep a fabulous variety for our readers.
Once you’ve been given a date by my DH, please email us your Guest Post as well as any images you’d like included at least a week prior to your Feature. Also, let us know how many copies you’ll be Ebook Gifting so we can include that in your post.
***Note: It’s perfectly fine to also use your Featured Post for any FREE Days
you have on KDP Select or other platforms too. And for any events you have
coming up…like the next Beach Book Blast. So, if you need a block of dates for
a multi-author event…just let us know that too.
So, email me with the dates you want.
Let’s see…what else can I tell you about this new approach?
Oh, for all of you superfab International Authors who can’t Ebook Gift yet using either the Kindle or Nook platforms (You should be able to Ebook Gift Internationally on Kobo and Smashwords.)…We’ve worked out that you can PayPal me the amount you’d like to Ebook Gift, and I’ll do the Gifting for you in your name. That way, you can treat readers too and benefit from the part you get back in royalties.
For samples of what I mean by Reader-Focused Posts, just browse through many of our Sunday Posts on RG2E and our RG2E Guest Author Posts, and you’ll get a feel for what kinds of superfab fun connections you can make with readers.
Also, do consider treating our readers to more than Ebooks too! In other words, our readers luuuvvv terrific “stuff” too, like T-shirts, mugs, and any cool tchotchkes that relate to your Ebooks and Brand.
It’s Your Turn, WG2E-Land: Let us know what you think of our new RG2E Featured Author Program…
