Street Team

Does anyone know what a Street Team is? No, it isn’t the guys playing basketball on the local playground. Or the kids playing tag at the bus stop. A Street Team is a very special group of people near and dear to an author’s heart. You see, they are the ones who like an author so much that they just have to tell someone about the book.  Have you ever recommended my books to someone searching the shelves of a bookstore for something to read? Have you asked your school librarian to carry my books? Maybe you’ve bought my books for friends just because you wanted to share my books with them. Have you promoted my releases on Facebook, Twitter,  or your blog?  Or posted a review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble?  If so, then you could possibly become a member of my Street Team!

The C.C. Hunter Street Team will consist of fifty fans of the Shadow Falls series.  (I seriously wish we didn’t have to stop at fifty, because all my readers are important to me, but rules are rules.) These are fans who not only read my books, but get so excited about them that they end up telling everyone else to read them, too.  And my publisher St. Martin’s Press/Griffin is going to help you do that.  How? Well, all street team members will receive an early release copy of Whispers at Moonrise, some cool promotional stuff,  and a Shadow Falls t-shirt.  (Sorry, unfortunately for any males out there, the t-shirts are lady’s Ts.  But you are welcome to give it to someone.)

So, how does this help you promote my books?  Well, once you’ve read Whispers at Moonrise, I hope that during the release week, you’ll want to tell everyone about it and encourage them to become Shadow Falls fans, too.  And if you wear your t-shirt, people will ask you about my Shadow Falls series.  But it doesn’t end there.  You’ll also get a handful of bookmarks to give away.

Half of my Street Team members will be selected on their promotional capabilities—those that have the best access to Facebook, Twitter and/or blogs. But to make sure I include all fans, the other half will be selected randomly with a slight focus on demographics. (I wouldn’t want all my Street Team members to be in one state.)  Once you are an official member of the C.C. Hunter Street Team, you will receive sneak previews of titles, covers and other special promotional stuff.  So, what are you waiting for? Do you have what it takes to be a member of the CC Hunter Street Team?

Email me at cc@cchunterbooks.com  with the title “Street Team” in the subject header, and answer these questions:

  1. How many of the Shadow Falls books have you read?
  2. Have you already promoted the Shadow Falls series?  If so, how?
  3. Do you have a Facebook page?  What is the address?  How many friends/followers do you have?
  4. Do you have a Twitter account? What is the address? How many followers do you have?
  5. Do you have a blog? What is the address and name? How many followers do you have?

Oh, and because I want to reward all my fans, I’ll be doing a drawing for all the fans who didn’t get into the team and giving away ten prizes of t-shirts and other cool promotional stuff.

Sorry, but due to mailing costs, I have to limit this to US residents only.

Thanks!

C.C.

  8. I was wondering, from what I understand the drawing will take place after the new book Whispers at Moonrise is available correct?

  9. I just wanted to let you know, that earlier I sent you an email with my request to be on the Street Team, I said I have no Twitter. But I JUST got one last night. My name is just Abigail Odom, my picture is of me with a cat, (it’s black and white), and since I just got it last night, I have merely 7 followers. Just wanted to let you know!

  10. Dang – I guess that means I didn’t get picked if I haven’t gotten an email by now… Oh well, I don’t have enough social outlets; I knew I wasn’t the greatest candidate anyway…

    🙁
