I am starting to write several books behind the scenes, books that will not be posted on Wattpad in the near future.
So why am I telling you this?
I've always wanted to have a group of people who read my books before they're released, and now I'm able to with Smashwords latest update.
So what does this mean for you?
It means you become a part of my Advanced Reader's Army, where you can get books of mine months before they're released. All I ask is for a review on your favorite book-reviewing-site in return. It's 100% free, no catch.
So what do you get out of this?
1. Free K. Weikel books months in advance. 2. The day you join, you get two K. Weikel books of your choice for free. 3. A discord group with the other Advanced Readers (if you so choose to be in one). 4. (If you write your own books) A shoutout on my Wattpad to 11.9k followers, as well as on my social media (Instagram, Twitter, etc.)
Why should you do this?
My entire life, I've wanted to write books. Now that I have, I aspire to make writing books my full-time gig. I published my first book in 2014, making my dream a reality, and in 2015, I won a Wattys Award. Since then, Wattpad has been changing a ton, and there's a lot of backlash when it comes to paid stories, the new $20 story analysis (now only $10), and many, many other things.
I have enjoyed my time on Wattpad, but I'm not making any money from putting my books on here. I used to get some revenue from ads, but paid stories has replaced that, thus removing the extra cash I might get each quarter.
Many people I speak to actually have no idea what Wattpad is, and I need to reach those who don't in order to help me make writing my career. This is where you come in, my dear reader!
Leaving honest feedback and reviews on websites people visit frequently for books (such as B&N, Amazon, etc.) really helps the author sell more copies. Several people won't pick up books because they don't have anybody to tell them how good or bad it is, and for an "unknown" self-published author like me, that makes it difficult for sales.
How does it work?
1. I give you the link and free code 2. You download the book onto your chosen reading device 3. You complete the book 4. Leave a review wherever you buy books from 5. Send me the link to your review. And that's it! Easy, peasy!
If you want to make money, why are you giving out books for free?
A lot of things get popular by word of mouth. It's the best advertising out there, to be honest.
I don't want to review your books.
If you sign up to be an Advanced Reader, I ask that you please do in exchange for the free book.
Do I get the paperback?
So it'll only be ebooks that I'm giving out, but they are compatible with pretty much all phones/tablets/reading devices. You can even read it on your computer!
Anything you should know beforehand?
Most of my books will have some violence. None of my books will have cussing/cursing/swearing or sexual content.
What if I'm not interested in the book up for preorder?
You don't have to read it! The great thing about this is that you'll be able to pick and choose which books you want to read. If you change your mind before it's released, just let me know and you can still receive your free copy.
What if I don't finish the book before it's released?
That's fine! Just please leave a review when you do finish it.
I want to thank you all for your support and please let me know if you have any questions what-so-ever. I'll try and answer them asap! If you sign up before Feb. 20, 2020, you'll get and advanced copy of the entire Replay Series (up to book 7)!
