This year, I am going to be publishing my debut novel. I will be blogging about how I’m getting on but the subscribers to my newsletter will often be the first to know big news and get exclusive offers.

Cover Reveal

I can see me sharing this on Instagram but in my newsletter I plan to share what went into the making of the cover.

Beta Readers

After the professional developmental edit (and self-edit), I want a last round of Betas to gauge how readers respond to the new version. These Betas will be the final seal of approval before I send my novel off for a line edit.

If you want to be amongst the first to read Ocean Heart then being a subscriber will tell you how and when you can become a Beta Reader.

Arc Readers

Once all is done, I will be looking for readers willing to write an honest review of my novel for release.

I’m hoping to share positive quotes from the reviews to help reach potential buyers once Ocean Heart is released.

I will be preparing a Press Kit for bloggers containing things such as the cover image, blurb and my author pic and bio for them to use.

Release Date

This will definitely be confirmed in my newsletter. Subscribers will be kept up to date with my publishing timeline. If for any reason there is a delay, subscribers will be the first to know.

Where to buy

Subscribers will know what formats Ocean Heart is available in and where it can be bought. I’m hoping to make it as easy as possible for everyone to access in a format that works for them.

Book Deals and Freebies

Whenever there is a special deal or discount, I will let my subscribers know. I also plan to create some bookish items to go with my books and hope to plan giveaways. Some of which will only be available to newsletter subscribers.

Exclusive Content

I have ideas to share with subscribers free short stories or poems from time to time. These may later become available to others and may even cost money. But, you, a subscriber, will get it first and for free!

Events

My news letter will often share details about what I have been up to but I hope in the future I will be able to tell my subscribers about what is coming up.

It still feels scary to think about but I want to be brave and do author signings and talks. I also enjoyed doing Facebook Lives last year and would love to let you know if I am hosting any other online events.

Want to know more?

I manage my newsletter using Mail Chimp and currently post towards the end of every other month. My next newsletter is planned for 25 Feb 2020.

The reason I send it out on the last Tuesday of every other month. This is to enable me time to write the letter and to do cool writery or bookish stuff to tell you about.

There is a possibility I will mail you more frequently, for example if there is important news like a discount that cannot wait until my next newsletter.

How to subscribe?

It is simple, just fill in this form to give your details and permission and you will be signed up.

Don’t worry, if you change your mind, you can unsubscribe but I cannot imagine you would want to.
