Are you thinking of signing up for Author Membership? Or perhaps you’re already a member? Either way, we’ve set ourselves a target of reaching one hundred members by the end of May and if we reach this ambitious goal, we’d like to reward our supporters.
We’ve chosen a selection of prizes to award to anyone who signs up before the end of May! We love our existing members too, and so you’ll also be included in the random selection!
To reach our goal, we need seventy-eight new members. We know it’s a big number, but we’re up for the challenge! But don’t worry, if we fail to reach it, we’ve thought up some consolation prizes! And if we manage to do even better, well, we’ll just have to award extra prizes!!
Here’s what we’ve got planned…
If we reach one hundred members by the end of May, we’ll award the following prizes:
- 1 free 8 Month Novel Course
- 1 free MS critique from Amanda Saint
- 3 free Start Your Novel Course with feedback
- 5 free Start Your Novel Course with no feedback
If we fail to reach our target, we’ll award the following consolation prizes:
- 1 free Start Your Novel Course with feedback
- 3 free Start Your Novel Course with no feedback
- 5 members get an extra 3 months membership for free
If we go crazy, and reach more than 130 sign-ups, here’s what’s in store:
- 2 free 8 Month Novel Course
- 2 free MS critique from Amanda Saint
- 5 free Start Your Novel Course with feedback
- 10 free Start Your Novel Course with no feedback
We’ll be posting updates on social media to let you know how we’re doing. We’re really proud of the offering Author Members enjoy and hopefully this will give you one more reason to consider signing up!
Please help us get the word out by sharing the news with friends, in writing groups and across social media. The more sign-ups we get the more prizes there’ll be!
