I now have a street team! What's that? It's a group of wonderful people who will interact with me and each other and learn more about my writing--as well as telling others about it.
At least that's the way I understand it. Although I've known about street teams for a while and even mentioned the idea in a blog a while ago, I'm new at this and hope to learn along the way.
I fortunately have a couple of wonderful, experienced team managers, one who helped to get my street team going and another who will be in charge and teach me what I need to know.
The team just started this week and has quite a few members already. It's a group on Facebook, and that's one social medium that I've been fairly active on, so I'm doing fine with it so far.
I asked about the team members' reading preferences and learned that some prefer just mysteries and others are into the kinds of romances I write, too. I hope we all have a great time with this! And I'll probably say more about it here in the future.
How about you--if you're a writer, do you have a street team? If you're a reader, are you on any street teams?
