Qualifications to be a Pre-publication Reader for The Seventh Door

Qualifications to be a pre-publication reader for The Seventh Door. You must:

1.  Have read all ten previous books in the story world.

2.  Within two weeks of receiving the new book, read it and provide an endorsement statement such as we have at the front of the other books.

3.  Allow me to use your statement and name for printing in the book or in marketing materials.

4.  Have a mailing address in the United States (Sorry, but it's too expensive and time-consuming to mail to other countries)

5.  Promise not to reveal anything about the story to anyone whether in person, online, or by any other means.

If you want to be chosen as a pre-publication reader, send an email stating that you meet the above qualifications, and tell me why you are a good candidate.

I will choose 15 readers and make my choices based on several factors, including promptness, ability to spread the word about the book online, and the impact the books have made on your life or the lives of others you know.

If I choose you, that doesn't mean your endorsement statement will automatically be included in the book. I will probably have about 12 statements in the book, depending on length of the statement, so probably not everyone will be included.

You may send in your request starting immediately, and I would like all requests in by the end of next week (midnight September 21).

Is there an age requirement or limit?

I REALLY want to do this. Should I put my adress in the e-mail/request?

Bryan Davis said...

You may put your address in. I won't need addresses, though, until I decide which applicants will get books.

Bryan Davis said...

Yes.

Bryan Davis said...

Kaycie, so for the delay. No, there is no age requirement.

So this one won't have the cover and the reviews in the front of the book, right?

Bryan Davis said...

The pre-publication edition will not have reviews in the front.

My name is Caitlin and i was wondering if you have to pay to be a member on your site

Bryan Davis said...

Caitlin, I'm not sure what you mean. Which site? I charge no fee to participate in any of my web pages, whether it's my blog, Facebook page, or newsletter.

Ok thank you. Oh yeah what happened to Gabriel?

Bryan Davis said...

If you mean, what happened to Gabriel after "From the Mouth of Elijah," you'll have to read the next book to find out. :-)

:-) yay! Thank you! I got to go

Bryan Davis said...

I do have pre-publication readers for every book in the Dragons in our Midst story world, but I don't always go about choosing readers in the same way. every time.

I'm really excited about this! I was wondering, if I were picked, when would I know?

Bryan Davis said...

Clara, I will notify people by email.

Clara Keck said...
