The Darlington Society, OPEN CALL FOR CHARTER MEMBERS
A couple months ago I came up with the idea for The Darlington Society. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with my writing and life in general and decided I needed a support group. Yes, it took me almost five books to realize that . . . I can be a slow learner at times. I ran the idea past the marketing and publicity people at my publisher and they agreed and offered some valuable input.
One, read over the details of the Societyagain and please make sure this is something you want to commit to for nine months. I’m excited about getting to know some of my readers better and working with them to reach more people with my books. If you’re a member, I’m betting you’ll count it a positive experience. We’ll be a blessing to each other.
Two, today only, November 1, post a comment TO THIS BLOG POST telling me in a few sentences why you want to be a part of the Society.
I’ll read over those posts, pray about them, and announce the 25 charter members on Wednesday, November 2. I know in some previous announcements I said it would be the first 25 to respond but this is too important of a decision to leave it up to that. I apologize for the change in course.
**Now, a disclaimer is necessary. I have readers overseas who I know will want to be a part of this. That’s okay. We’re not going to exclude anyone just because they live in a different country. That would hardly be fair. BUT, please understand we can’t send hard copies of ARCs/manuscripts overseas, the postage is just too much. If you live outside the US you will recieve the early reader’s copy of my next book via email as an electronic edition. You may however order copies of my books directly from me at the discounted prices but I’ll have to ask you to cover the postage cost.
Lastly, please help spread the word about this unique opportunity by sharing this post on Facebook and Twitter and maybe even your own blog.
I’m looking forward to reading all your comments and embarking on a new journey with you.
