A takeover is where an author takes over a site for a small amount of time! Authors in this particular event will have 30 minute time slots this is a time to showcase your books do little giveaways or games!

@Miss Mary: Giveaways like books or gift cards. Games like "This or That" or "Finish this sentence".

@Lady Ember: Thank you so much for putting this bugger together!

*sloppy kisses*

Princess Jane! Me either it's sooo far away! I want it to be right now! Lol!
@Miss Mary takeovers are a super fun way to interact with readers! I usually give away a couple e-copies of my books little small gift cards or a book from any author up to a certain price. Readers love that!

We have some readers in the group already cuz even before Princess Jane posted to the group Facebook page some of my lovely readers asked to join! Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come! (Apparently I have some cyber stalkers lol but I love them so it's good! Hahaha!)

And Mistress Ann you don't have to thank me! I am happy to do it! ❤️️❤️️❤️️

Hey everyone! Just a reminder that we still have a bunch of takeover slots available for the Facebook event! If you want a time slot please comment! We will be opening it up to other romance authors on the 12th in order to fill the spaces and bring in new readers! The times are going to fill up fast after that!

A note on Pen names if your Facebook profile is your actual name you can always say you are a PA for your pen name that way people still won't know who you are and anyone who is not in the group cannot see your posts anyway because it is a closed group! Only members can see posts!

If you don't know how to do a Takeover please don't let it stop you. You can always reach out to one of the mods and ask for advice! I would be happy to give you a breakdown on what I do so you can utilize your time!


message 27: by Jane (new)

Jane Blythe Lady Ember is an expert at takeover so she will have lots of great advice for anyone who wants to join in but hasn't done a takeover before and isn't sure what to do!
