What are the Ace Roc Stars?
No guitars needed–we’re looking for great readers! Namely, our new Ace Roc Stars–readers who love reading science fiction and fantasy as much as we do and might want an early look at some of our great titles and authors. There’s nothing better than finding a great story you fall in love with, and we hope you’ll do just that with our books and authors.
What You’ll Get:
Every month, our stars will receive a special package containing books to read and share with friends, whether an early Advance Reading Copy of a forthcoming book, sneak peeks at the first in a brand-new series, or a reintroduction to a long-running series or author we’d like more people to know about. We’ll also occasionally throw in fun promotional items (who doesn’t love swag?), and other goodies. Going forward, we’ll be putting together special opportunities for the Ace Roc Stars at conventions, author signings, and more.
Who Are We Looking For?
We’re looking for voracious SF/F readers who love to talk about what they’re reading with their friends, whether in-person at conventions and book clubs, or online through strong social media communities. If you’re an SF/F reader with a stellar social media presence, we’re looking for you. We’d love for you to be part of our virtual street team, spreading the word about our awesome SF/F books wherever you hang out online, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, Tumblr, you name it! If you’re online and talking about books, we want you there talking about our books.
Online not your thing? No problem. If you’re a reader who’s deeply ingrained in SF/F convention fandom, a bookseller who loves to hand-sell SF/F to your customers, or a librarian who loves to recommend books, we’re looking for you, too!
What Are We Expecting From You?
It’s simple–if you like the books we’re sending you, tell us. And more importantly, tell the rest of the planet!
