In Search of ARC Readers for BREAK

BREAK, Episode 2 of The Devastation Series CoverI'm super excited about all the wonderful things people have been saying about BREATHE. Right now, BREATHE has 4.9 Star ratings on both and GoodreadsBREATHE readers have been asking when BREAK will be available. Well, I've been working feverishly trying to get BREAK ready to release by my target date of January 29The thing is, reviews are extremely important to a book's success. Therefore, I'd love to have several people ready to post reviews for BREAK on release day.

How will people have time to read it and post their review that same day?

Easy! I have a Read 2 Review (R2R) program for my books.

What's an R2R?

An R2R is a FREE Advance Read Copy in exchange for an HONEST review. That's it. Simple.

Those who want to be one of the first to get their hot little hands on Episode 2 of The Devastation Series can sign up on my email list and click the Read 2 Review check-box. Readers MUST read BREATHE before they can even think about reading BREAK (it's a series, each one builds on the last). Then they get to read BREAK EARLY and for FREE. Plus, BREAK gets the reviews it needs to get more readers. It's a WIN/WIN for everyone.

 But wait! What if some people want in on the R2R for BREAK, but haven't read BREATHE? 

No problem. I still have a limited number of slots for readers to do both. Contact me; if there are still openings, I'll set you up with BREATHE and BREAK.

R2Rers will read BREATHE and post a review for it in a timely fashion (within four or five days). Once their review for BREAK is posted, I'll send BREAK's ARC to them, some time after this coming weekend when they are ready, of course. ARC readers will have close to 2 weeks to read BREAK and have reviews ready post on the 29th, depending on when they get their ARCs, those later to sign up will have less time.

What needs to be in a review?

All I ask is readers post at least five sentences telling what they like/disliked about the writing style, characters, plot, or pace. Leave an HONEST review, which doesn't need to be complicated, just basics, but enough to let people know they actually DID read the book. It shouldn't be so generic it could fit any book. That said, NO SPOILERS PLEASE. Then readers just post their review on Amazon and Goodreads on the 29th. Cut and paste is fine, no need to write two separate reviews.

That's it. R2Rs are a great way to not only get a FREE book, but, in BREAK's case, to be one of the first people to read the book. Isn't that fun?

If you are interested, please sign up using my email form, and make sure to check the Read 2 Review check-box. I will contact you sometime over the weekend, when the ARCs are ready to go, or soon after you sign up, depending on when that is.

If you know someone who might be interested in BREATHE or BREAK, or in the R2R program, just have them go to the email sign up form, or they are welcome to come here and post a comment and I will contact them. Thank  you for sharing this with your friends and family.

I appreciate every single one of my readers. Without you, this would all be pointless.
