Joining eNovel Authors at Work

Written By: Jackie Weger - Jul• 05•15

Are you considering membership in eNovel Authors at Work?

Sorry, but Membership is Closed until Further Notice

eNovel Round Logo (2)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).

Note: If we find that your Amazon bio and book descriptions need revising–we’re gonna tell you. Read this article on Book Descriptions. Here is an article on Amazon bios.

Would love it, if you Follow me on Amazon or subscribe to eNovel's newsletter.

Would love it, if you Follow me on Amazon or subscribe to eNovel’s newsletter.

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.

  1. “Paying it forward…” That’s our motto and the best reason for joining. Authors in this group support one another, with honesty and integrity.

  2. This is a wonderful group of talented, generous, and supportive authors! I’ve learned so much, and I’m honored to count these wonderfully honest, creative, and insightful writers as my friends and colleagues. Special thanks to Jackie Weger, Frossie Moschoudi, Amy Vansant, and Rebecca Dahlke, and my sincere appreciation to every single member of eNovel Authors at Work!

  3. Jenny Harper says:

    E Novel Authors at Work introduced me to a whole new world. It has helped me to navigate the mysterious labyrinths of ebook marketing and understand what truly works to sell books. It’s a hugely supportive group!

  4. So great to be in a group of authors who support each other so much. Hugely grateful. 🙂

  5. Traci Hall says:

    This group is very supportive. I have learned more here than I ever did publishing traditionally. Jackie and everyone taking part goes the extra mile to explain, teach and support. I’m so grateful!

  6. I am grateful to have been accepted into this group and am so appreciative of what eNovel members share about selling books–their successes and their mistakes. I’ve learned a lot from this group and keep learning from them.

  7. Being a member of this fabulous eNovel group, I feel as if I am back in college; this time learning about new social media opportunities every day and always, always getting tremendous support from Jackie and its members! Talk about being grateful….!

  8. I am very proud to be a member of this awesome group of generous with information, savvy, friendly authors and can’t wait to welcome any new members who enjoy to promote, support and share 🙂

  9. Julie Frayn says:

    I count myself lucky the day I got an invitation from Jackie to join enovel. Lovely to be one of the original group, and plan on sticking around. Each member has something to learn – and something to teach. Every day I soak up a bit more indie knowledge.

  10. Mimi Babour says:

    This has been a huge plus for me – being involved in eNovel Authors. I’ve learned so much, never feel alone out there in the mad publishing world and have had incredible support from the others in the group.

  11. Wendy Maston says:

    I am so happy that I ‘accidentally’found this site. I’ve been writing for a long time but finally found CreatSpace/Amazon and published two novels there. They do not promote. I’m 65 and not as social media as I would like to be but I’m learning. (My grandchildren are my best teachers!) After reading some of the ‘stuff’ here I feel as if I have found the place I need to be.

    • Jackie Weger says:

      Thank you for stopping by, Wendy. CreateSpace does not promote our books. Amazon offers authors the privilege of self-publishing our work. Amazon is a virtual bookshelf. Each author must promote her work and get it visible and into the hands of readers. I hope the articles on eNovel help you.

      Good Luck!

  12. I was trying to send an enquiry about membership to the above e-mail address but for some reason it kept saying that there was an error in the address. It’s probably my e-mail being awkward.
    Thanks for your help.

  13. EM Kaplan says:

    I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to have been brought into the eNovAaW fold. I’ve learned so much already. Thank you. 🙂


  14. Pete Barber says:

    I am forever in the debt of Jackie Weger and the terrific members of this group. Because of their support, my books have been read by thousands, and reviewed by hundreds of readers. So, if I spend two hours today trying to get a difficult paragraph “just right,” I know I’m not just doing it for myself. Other people care about what I write as well. And if I hadn’t joined this group, I would never have found that out.

  15. I am forever grateful for being a member of this amazing group and to Jackie Weger for all she does. I’m heads down to finish the sequel to my debut novel and I know that I’ll make a lot fewer mistakes launching the sequel than I made the first time around!

    I get so much inspiration from the other authors, all of whom are helpful. Writing can be a lonely endeavor but not when you know you have this kind of wind at your back.

  16. Susan Tarr says:

    When I need inspiration, or re-enthusing, this group is my ‘go to’. When I am fogged up and need to take a breath, and have lost my inspiration, this group re-grounds me and more.
    Thank you, Jackie and our team members. Thank you.

  17. Just sent my request for membership. Thanks!
