Not going to be able to make the deadline tonight. Expect one, possibly two (depending), tomorrow! Have fun, kids.
Don’t forget to check out my Patreon to help keep my services free for authors and to decrease the turnaround time!
So, while I’ve been trying to keep to the “post a review a day” mantra, today I’m going to forgo it.
I’m building myself up to take the necessary leaps forward. I’m terrified of failure. I’m equally as terrified of never having the opportunity to fail. Now, I’m gathering the resources needed to start expanding. I’ve never done anything like this before, so I want to do what I can to get things right.
Today I’m drafting my first newsletter. Working on the details associated with distributing it. Also trying to plan ahead content. I want to make this process as streamlined as possible.
That being said, would anyone like to volunteer to be my first author interview? Comment with your e-mail address below and we’ll talk about it!
I can’t tell you how excited I am to begin this kind of journey. I can only hope I don’t disappoint along the way.
So, I’ve been thinking about creating a Patreon so I can devote more time to shaping this blog and website the way I want. Working 50+ hours a week doesn’t leave a whole lot of free time, and there’s so much I want to offer without having to charge authors.
A few ideas I have are: offering audio critques that go a bit more in depth than my actual review. I’ve been toying with the idea of a vlog series where there’s a round table discussion/reactions to an audio reading of a novel. Book exchanges, giveaways, a newsletter, and other discussion prompts are also all on the table. Eventually, I’d like to offer editing services. However, I don’t have nearly the amount of time to do that currently.
What rewards would I offer? Access to the vlogs/critiques (with author permission)? Drawings into book giveaways? Interviews? Social media promotions?
I’m thinking the editing service could be a top-tier one. I’m genuinely curious as to all of your thoughts/ideas/opinions.
I’ve been having the time of my life just doing reviews, and I’d really like to build it into a long-term career.
