Interested in joining the Nebraska writers here at GO BIG READ?
Great! I would love that! But first, I want to make sure that this site is a good fit for you and your book(s). I do have a few requirements a writer must meet before he or she can participate, so be sure you can say “Yes” to the items below before choosing to register as a GO BIG READ writer.
I am a Nebraska writer who is 18 years or older, and have published my books either by myself or with the help of a small publisher.
My book or books are available to purchase from Amazon and at least one other source. (That source may be the author’s or publisher’s website.)
My book or books are available to libraries and bookstores in print form, if they desire to purchase a copy.
I am willing to provide a minimum of 100 free review copies of each book I am marketing on the website to our readers. I understand these may be in digital form via the website BookFunnel or they may be actual print copies that I (or my publisher) agree to mail out to readers directly.
I have the necessary and legal rights to set up my book(s) at BookFunnel (if that is the way I decide to distribute my free review copies.)
I can provide a photo of myself, a scan of each book cover, and a book mock-up for each book (jpeg format) for use on the site. (I checked out the photos on the “Our GO BIG READ Books” and “Our GO BIG READ Writers” so I understand exactly what those should look like.)
I can complete the author packet that includes a short author biography plus a longer “first person” interview. (I have downloaded the author packet below, and I understand exactly what I need to provide to Nancy before my information can become “live” on the website.)
