Team Awesome – Recruiting Now

Team Awesome is the street team I created to help me market my books. I haven't had the chance to put much time into building the team yet, due to many reasons, mostly just life getting in the way, and I've decided I need to give everyone a bit of an incentive to get involved. I want this experience to be fun for everyone, but I realise that time is valuable, and even more so when I'm asking people to help me for free.

So … I've planned out a structure for those who would like to get involved, but may not necessarily have the time to do so on a regular basis.

There will be prizes!

This is how it will work:
Three times a year I will have a giveaway exclusively for the street team. It means you can only enter if you are a member. Becoming and staying a member of the team Facebook group is the only strict requirement. One person will win a prize pack, and prizes will include things like eBooks, gift vouchers, swag, and signed paperbacks. There may even be special items like T-shirts and tote bags, too!

During the four months leading up to the drawing of each giveaway, every member will have the opportunity to earn points (entries). The more you get involved, the better chance you have of winning, and certain things will earn more points than others.

Here is a breakdown of the point earning potential:
  • Join Team Awesome – 10 points
  • Display the Team Awesome badge on your website – 10 points
  • Sign up to K. A. Last's newsletter – 10 points
  • Review any title by K. A. Last  – 10 points
  • Blog about anything to do with K. A. Last – 5 points
  • Share or create a teaser for any title by K. A. Last – 5 points
  • Tweet about K. A. Last and her books – 3 point
  • Share any of K. A. Last's book trailers – 3 points
  • Like KALastBooks on Facebook – 1 point
  • Follow KALastBooks on twitter – 1 point

So as you can see, there are plenty of opportunities to earn points, and better your chances of winning something. I might even do spot prizes each month to keep it interesting. Please note though that I will be checking entries when they are drawn to make sure they are legitimate.

UPDATE:
To make it fairer for everyone, I’ve decided to make some slight adjustments to the way the prizes work. There will still be a main prize at the end of each four month period, but the winner of that prize will be the team member who has earned the most points during the four months. I think this will not only encourage those with a genuine interest in my books to participate, but it will also reward those who deserve it. The points will be zeroed at the end of each period, but there will be other prizes for each point milestone you reach along the way. I will keep a running overall total of points for each participating member, and send out prizes accordingly.

The first major draw will take place on August 31.

The prize for the first round will be a Fall For Me tote bag, pen, magnet, and signed bookmark.


As a bonus, everyone who joins the team in the first two weeks will have the chance to win some Immagica swag. The draw for this will be on June 16.

Stay awesome!
