BELLA FAUST'S ARC & STREET TEAM
Honest reviews are the lifeblood of a self-published author's career, and we can never have enough of them. If you are willing to review my new (and old) releases in exchange for a free ebook copy, then I would love to have you on my team.
At present, I have two levels of reviewers.
This level is for the reader who wants to be just that... a reader.
Whenever I have a new release or I am trying to gain fresh reviews for my back catalogue, I will email you to offer an ebook copy. This will usually be sent a week before the release or promo blitz is scheduled to run and will be due four weeks after you have downloaded the book.
You will receive a version of the story that has been edited and had one round of proof-reading. Because of this, it may contain some minor spelling mistakes. If you are so inclined, I would love if you could alert me to errors so they can be fixed.
Of course, you do not have to review every release. Feel free to pick and choose the stories that suit your taste and your free time.
This offer does come with strings attached.
1: you must be able to review on Amazon and Goodreads. If you do not have an Amazon account, BookBub is an acceptable alternative. Once your review is posted, please email the link toso we can check you off the review list.
2: your review must be honest, but cannot contain spoilers. I don't give a shit if you one-star me as long as you don't ruin the story for other readers whilst you tear me a new one.
3: I will expect your review to be left within twenty-eight days of each book's release. Extensions are easy to get if you want one - just email me. Your time is precious and I don't want to burden you with a task you don't want to undertake. This should be a mutual exchange... I get an honest review to boost my numbers while you get to keep your book budget under control with a free book.
4: if you skip leaving a review of a previous release without contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know why, I will not offer a copy of my next release to you until this is done.
Because we are making a clean swap -- a free ebook for an honest review -- I will not be offering any further sweeteners to this deal. If you would prefer a higher level of involvement, then level two might be for you.
This level is for the reader who wants to help me spread the word about my books.
Spots are limited in this team and are regularly forfeited if conditions aren't met. Because this is an involved position where you would be privy to book information that hasn't been publicly revealed, you will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement. If that's a deal breaker, then level one is right for you.
I would also expect that you participate in every release (reviewing and promoting) or agree to forgo the sweeteners on offer for that book.
You will receive a version of the story that has been edited and had one round of proof-reading. Because of this, it may contain some minor spelling mistakes. If you are confident in your spelling and grammar abilities, I would appreciate if you could complete the error reporting form that can be found in our Facebook group.
Of course, an offer like this offer comes with strings attached.
1: you will be expected to share one teaser graphic/video with text and links per week on one social media platform (Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, Pinterest, whichever platform you prefer).
2: you must be able to review on Amazon, BookBub, and Goodreads. If you do not have an Amazon account, please do not apply. Once your review is posted, please email the post the link in our Facebook group so we can check you off the review list.
3: during the release month, you will be asked to share your review three times on one social media platform -- this can all be done on the same platform or spread across different platforms, it is totally up to you.
4: your review must be honest but cannot contain spoilers. I don't give a shit if you one-star me as long as you don't ruin the story for other readers whilst you tear me a new one.
5: I will expect your review to be left within seven days of each book's release. Extensions are easy to get if you want one - just email me.
6: if you are running late or need to skip leaving a review, please email me at email@example.com to let me know why. If I don't hear from you, I will reach out once to see why, after which a non-response will result in your removal from our group and forfeiture of the goodies relating to the book's release.
What am I offering you in exchange for this?
If you complete the items listed above each week/month/release, I will send you the following goodies.
1, a $5 gift card on the 30th of each month (via PayPas)
2, a signed paperback copy of each book you review and promote (because I am based in Australia and postage is ridiculous, these are sent in batches twice a year in April and November)
3, your name listed in the acknowledgements of each book you review and promote
4, my undying gratitude and devotion
5, a bunch of other perks that are listed in the exclusive Faust Fanatics Facebook group
If you have read through the two review teams on offer and remain interested in reviewing/promoting for me, please complete the form below and indicate which level you would prefer.
My PA, Heather Baker, will email you to confirm your application has been received.
If you don't hear from her within fourteen days, please reach out via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much!
