What My Street Team Means to Me

I had three goals when I set up my street team. I wanted it small, so I could manage it without an assistant. I wanted us to become close. And I wanted them to support me in my writing career.

 
 
I have 108 members in my group of Vixens. Many authors have well over 200 members. I tell my awesome ladies stories about the crazy things Calvin and I do. We laugh together online. I tell them when I'm stressed with schedules and deadlines and stories that have halted. And they encourage me. I ask them their opinions on a character or a scene, and they give me their thoughts. I trust their judgment. I love them to death.
 
 
We have a mascot and voted on a name for him--Magnus. Our Magnus appears in book three of the Highlander's Beloved, BEARING IT ALL. I loved writing about him, no doubt because my Vixens had named Ronan's bear.
 
My Vixens tweet for me, post to Facebook, and attend all my book release parties. They know how to add their own brand of fun. Some are authors and some are readers, but we all enjoy our man candy and share it when we can. I'm lucky to have each one of my girls.

Vonnie, your street team was only the second one I had joined. Melissa Snark being the first. I have enjoyed the stories, shifters as well as real life. Thankyou for making my day a little brighter than the days that came before you. :)

Barbi, you are always so full of fun energy. When I'm trying not to let the business get me down, you lift me up.

Oh, Sheila, I love Melissa. Don't you? She won't admit how sweet she is, but she truly is. I'm glad you're on my team and are strong enough to put up with my goofiness. We do have fun, don't we?

Now, Chele, aren't you the sweetest? I value your input.

Professional and emotional support is important in this writing business. You're fortunate to have "your team."

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

I try to make the street team fun. In fact, I'll do something dumb and the first thought that goes through my mind is "wait till I tell the Vixens" about this."

Vonnie Davis ~ Romance Author said...

Yes, Angela, I am. When I tell the girls my fears about something and they tell me things like "you got this" mean a lot and boost my ego.
