Are you considering membership in eNovel Authors at Work?
Sorry, but Membership is Closed until Further Notice
Hello, and welcome. I’m Jackie Weger, Founder of eNovel Authors at Work. We open membership several times a year. We are always on the lookout for indie authors with good books and a great attitude. Right this minute most of our authors are in promotions and gearing up for the fall season. We adore our new members and enjoy meeting them, downloading their books and in general making them welcome into our private Facebook Hub from whence all good information flows. As most of you know, autumn is our selling season, so we lack time to usher in new members.
Our goal is to get our books in the hands of readers in whatever way available to us.
If that is your goal, read on. The single caveat is we do not accept contracted authors. We don’t work for publishers. eNovel is not a for-hire public relations organization. We are a loose group of indie authors who pay-it-forward and support one another. We download one another’s books on FREE and discounted to 99¢. All other member titles are put on our Amazon Wish lists. eNovel is FREE–no dues. We have a core of generous volunteers that keeps our group on the move.
The Basic Rules
- You must have at least one self-published book
- You must have a Twitter account
- You must have a celebrity Facebook page
- You must read, comment and share the articles on eNovel
- You must regularly visit our private Facebook page, our eNovel hub
- You must follow members on Amazon/Facebook/Twitter
- You must visit each eNovel member author page, comment and share it
- You must subscribe to our newsletter. It is all about books and events. Published monthly or less.
- We do NOT trade reviews. Don’t ask.
The above is critical and key because established members do all of the above for you. Basically, we are one another’s Street Team. You have access to our Preferred list of promoters and discounts those promoters may offer eNovel members. Our Twitter Account is here. We have a registered hashtag #eNovAaW. eNovel retweets all Tweets with that hashtag. Our members engage in group promotions several times a year and we share the expenses of those promotions i.e. Rafflecopters, Book tours or whatever promo members design that will get our books visible. We do not promote erotica. eNovel is not the place for a political or religious agenda or rants against Amazon. eNovel does provide members with the tools to be successful. But, you have to use them.
Send your query for membership to Jackie Weger: enovaaw@gmailcom Please include the link to your Amazon Author page. Once accepted into eNovel, volunteer member chair Rebecca Dahlke will send a new member task list with info we need to create your author page on eNovel. Amy Vansant is eNovel’s volunteer Webmistress. Effrosyni Moschoudi oversees and monitors eNovel Twitter. All members are encouraged to insert this gentle plea after THE END of your books:
Thank you for taking time to read [title]. If you enjoyed it, please consider telling your friends or posting a short review. Word of mouth is an author’s best friend and much appreciated. Thank you, (author name).
We do not like to see any member leave, however do let us know and we will remove your author page and access to The Hub. We consider a member inactive after six months of no activity. If eNovel is not for you, please do keep in touch. Our articles are timely, instructive and tell it like it is. Fun Facts: eNovel authors have an aggregate of above 210,540 active Twitter followers. When we Twitter…we TWEET loud. Does that gentle plea at the end of a book work? Yes, it does. Our members have above 14,000 reviews on 400+ books. Our membership hovers around 50 members. Those who have composed gems of book descriptions and are professionally edited with engaging covers have snagged 70 Bookbub slots.
Success is never instant. It takes at least a year to get up to speed in indie authorship.
