Here’s the bottom line. I choose my early book ARC reviewers from active readers on my mailing lists who consistently open the emails and click the links inside. If a reader is reading all the excerpts and using the book links in the email, that’s a pretty good indication to any author that the reader is someone who really enjoys their work.
About once a year, I sort my email list and make the offer to a range of 30-50 new readers. I keep my reviewer lists small (around 150).
I talk to my reviewers most. They might not hear from me for a couple months, then suddenly I’m emailing them several times over a month. It’s the nature of the creative process. It comes in waves of activity. I sometimes send reviewers emails asking for things–nothing big, easy peasy things. For example, recently I took a heat level poll because my new romantic comedy series is a bit tamer than my normal. I wanted some feedback before I told my characters to close the door–LOL.
What do my reviewers get for their help? They get all the books early, and if they’ve missed one, they can write to me and ask for it in exchange for a review.
Want to be considered? Here are the links to sign up to my mailing lists. I have two–one for each genre group–so you only need to sign up for the email you truly want.

Over the last couple of years, I have gotten a lot of reader email from my cross genre fans who tell me they have an strong aversion for the word “demon”, so strong it has kept them from trying this series. The Forced To Serve series is a science fiction action and adventure story, and not at all about a “demon from hell”. “Daemon” (aka demon, daimon) means “an inner or attendant spirit or inspiring force” among other things.
Let me explain it another way. Did you ever watch Star Trek: Deep Space Nine? There was a character who had a “symbiont” installed in her. I used the term “demon/daemon/daimon” because I didn’t want to copy a term from Star Trek. Jadzia Dax was an officer who had all of her memories and all the symbiont’s. Jadzia was a Trill alien who joined with Dax the symbiont alien. That kind of blending of two beings into one always fascinated me so I wanted to create my own.
I recently changed the spelling of the word across this series to the term “daemon” hoping that future readers will bring a mythological context to mind when they see the books. I’m hoping to put out another in the series this year. Book 4 is currently being recorded in audiobook.
