Street Team for The Becalmer - Help Needed!

As we head into another week, I have another exciting announcement to make. I'm looking for five to ten people to form a street team to help generate some buzz about my upcoming traditionally published debut, The Becalmer. You would need to:

  • Be excited to read The Becalmer
  • Be willing to help spread the word - you'll receive emails from me or my publisher with marketing materials for social media posts
  • Generally get out there and talk about the book, why you're excited about it etc.
My book isn't out until August 2023, but it's never too early to start making ripples in the pond! I'm also looking for ARC readers willing to post reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. I'll have a few perks for my street team members such as sneak peeks and other goodies. Here's a working blurb for the book. I made a mood board, too, which is a first for me - I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Gifted with the ability to defuse conflicts with her mind, Harica is headhunted to resolve a war via an arranged marriage, unaware that the reluctant would-be bride—the entitled Princess Jasmila—has similar powers. But the princess doesn’t use them for good, and she fights back, sending Harica into a coma through which she finds a mysterious liminal space populated by others who share her gift, both living and dead. She learns to do things she never thought possible, but when things get out of control, she almost swears off her gift forever—until events dictate that she must come to terms with the dark side of her gift and take ownership of it. 

If you're interested, let me know in the comments or shoot me an email at mcwilfo (at) gmail (dot) com. Have a great week!

Hi Nick - I do hope you can get some volunteers - I know I wouldn't be much good ... but delighted you're so far ahead with your book, and getting yourself organised well in advance for the launch next year. All the best - cheers Hilary

I'll be happy to help! You could do a guest post on August's IWSG day on my site.

Sign me up! When I was a teenager, I read science fiction by the box. Truly. I look forward to your Becalmer! Sent you an e-mail separately.
