How many of you have heard the term, Street Team, and wondered what it meant? Well, I have the answer. A Street Team is a group of readers who gather in a location (usually Facebook) and they support, promote and generally connect with a certain author they enjoy reading. This is a beautiful thing for both the reader and the writer.
Coming together with a common purpose is always good, especially if it has anything to do with reading. We all love to read, and getting better acquainted with authors can be a wonderful experience for both parties.
I have a Street Team I love. They do fabulous things to help promote my writing. In return, they get my books first, they get prizes on launches, and they very often give input on the books I write. They chose covers, come up with names, and sometimes help with plot problems. They've enriched my writing and made my life happier.
If this is something that would interest you, contact any of the ladies on this loop and they'd be happy to have you on their team. It's a win-win for everyone, and you get free stuff. :)
