Are you an indie author, who wants to promote your story to wider audiences? I have a growing readership on web, email and social media, and I loving introducing my readers to new authors.
Rosser's Reads is a simply a means for me to promote books published by other indie authors. It comes in two flavours, first an issue of my monthly newsletter where I typically select 4-6 books and share to my subscribers. The second is a full review on my website of my pick for the month. This will accompany an author interview for those who are gracious enough to participate. Full reviews/author interviews will also be shared through my social media channels and receive a mention on my forthcoming podcast.
At the end of the year (December) I'll announce my three favourite picks, with a modicum of fanfare and maybe a giveaway or two.
Selection is based on my tastes, and books I think my reads might like. That means I'm looking for fantasy, Sci-Fi, historical fiction or contemporary thrillers -- but I will read (almost, see below) anything if it grabs me, so don't be afraid to ask.
First come, is generally first served. While I will try to publish an issue according to you preferred release date, I will typically slot you in where I can.
Let me be clear, I don't care where you are from, what colour your skin is, or what organs facilitate your reproduction and waste disposal. In other words I don't discriminate, and by the same token I'm not looking to promote anyone based on these characteristics either -- I promote good stories, not any particular agenda.
That said, I'm only human and if I'm biased in anyway, it's usually towards those who are nice to me on Twitter!
While I will consider longer works, I am time constrained and will generally favour novellas over door-stoppers.
This is NOT a paid service. I will not accept payment for my opinion, time, nor to favour or promote one submission over another.
I may however be amenable to offers of cross-promotion with authors who are prepared to introduce me to their audiences either through newsletter swaps, blog/book tours or podcast appearances.
To submit your interest, email or contact me on Twitter or Facebook. Please don't include your full book, a simple introduction and some details about your book is all I need. If I'm interested in doing a full review I'll ask you to supply a copy.
This is not a paid service. You get promotion, I get content to serve my readers. Win-Win.
However, we live in litigious times where a minority of people feel entitled beyond their due. So, it's worth noting, this is my website and my rules apply!
In general, what I publish is subject to Australian Jurisdiction and Laws -- including Copyright and anti-vilification laws -- at Commonwealth, State and local level. My website is intended to entertain and inform; it is not a platform to infringe copyright or spew hate and vitriol.
