OUR SUMMER REVIEW WARS
AUTHORS––how would you like to sell a lot of books within a few days and get reviews for most of them…boost your book rank, party with potential readers, promote your work in a live Q & A, and have fun––all while letting a virtual assistant host organize the entire event and inspire potential readers. Asa an author, I know we all need sales to validate the value of our career, not to mention pay a bill or two. Most authors spend far more on promotions than we make in book sales. And for what? Random purchases and occasional reviews. At that rate we’ll spend a fortune, work our butts off, and take years to find the secret that really clicks. Whew…I’m exhausted just thinking about the madness. An author’s world revolves around REVIEWS…and Lord help us if we get one-star or two-star blathers from people who obviously didn’t read the same story we wrote!
That’s why I created Moonlight And Mystery and finally came up with a WIN––WIN––WINNING NEW CONCEPT.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve spent far too much money and energy searching for a magic wand to help me sell my books,! In return for all my time, energy and money, I received some random sales and reviews along the way…UNTIL I discovered a few secrets to success. So now, I’m sharing all my magic to you through these fantastic events. BTW…I’m not making a penny on any of these epic events. The fees go directly to the host and her assistants, who are trained professionals at doing exactly what we need.
I will say I added 51 reviews the first time I worked with this team. I was the highlight for that event––but it gave me an incredible idea, which opened the door for Moonlight And Mystery’s Epic Author Events. Now YOU can reap the benefits. Though there’s no guarantee you’ll get double-digit reviews, the parties will help you connect with the readers to sell your babies.
Review Wars FAQs
* Moonlight And Mystery runs a month-long event for readers, featuring authors who have signed up to be in the event.
This is to make sure readers have as much time as they need to read the books they choose and review author’s books. A long event will cut down on fake reviews posted to get prizes.
* The host will post games along the way and giveaway paperbacks or gift cards.
* The event features 50 authors. Once we reach that number of entries, the event sign-ups will close.
* The main prize will be a $200 Amazon gift card.
* The host will also hold some smaller gift cards giveaways during the month to keep everyone interested. Example: 10’s and $5’s gift cards.
* The host will offer books to be reviewed in groups of 5 or 10 at a time for a specific period of time….then move on to the next 5 or 10. That way we give the readers fewer choices at once instead of having all 50 books blasted in their faces. Hopefully this means more reading books and less cheating, too.
* Every day M-F there will be posts about the events on our M&M Facebook page and our website blog page as well as on Twitter and Instagram.
* we encourage all authors to promote the event to all your social media!
* We would like to have verified purchases on Amazon so all entered books must be on sale for $0.99 or free during the author’s scheduled download time period. [Verified purchases are less likely to be taken down by Amazon.]
* During the event, the host will run up to FIVE parties called Raves. These Raves will be for authors to meet readers in a live Q and A.
* Each party will be on one thread, and authors will be introduced in groups of 5 -10 authors per one party. This is a tried and true method which works great to promote the hosted books and authors.
* The event includes a grand finale, which will be the final event where Reviewers will receive their prizes. All authors are asked to attend this party.
* Participating authors will be required to donate one signed print book for the grand prizes and the authors will be responsible for getting those books to the winners… However we will tell you who your winner is and get the contact info for you. ***[If your book isn’t available in print, we may ask you to give away an Amazon gift card or a digital copy of your book.
* Readers sign up to read and win books. We want readers, not people who just want cash or prizes.
* Reader/reviewer sign-ups will run through July 10th. The event will begin on July 15th.
Author sign-ups are now open but will be closed once we hit 50 sign-ups.
* What Authors get:
* We don’t limit the readers, so you have a huge opportunity to get multiple reviews, hopefully in double digits. [My last event with our host gave me 51 reviews.]
* Your novel will be exposed to tons of new readers!
* Reviews might trickle in long after the event ends.
* Your Amazon rank will get a big boost as your book is downloaded
* Authors will be highlighted on Raves and should receive promo from 49 other authors and our host before and during the event.
* You’ll also have fun, meet new author friends, and get in front of a lot of new readers!
