AAoA is my street team. The idea is for my fans to help me spread the word about my books and in return, I reward you with sneak peeks, exclusives, prizes, swag and books. To encourage participation and give you the opportunity to get as many goodies as you’re willing to earn, I use a point and rank system that sort of combines the concept of the military hierarchy with prize tickets from Chuck E. Cheese.
As soldiers earn points, they move up in rank and earn prizes. Everyone starts out as a Private. Once you reach the rank of Private First Class, you’ll earn your official AAoA pin. From there, it’s up to you how high you climb – win books, gift cards, pizza parties…even a Kindle Fire!
