I really value my advance readers! You make a very valuable contribution to the finished quality of my books and their success on distribution platforms. If, at any time, you wish to be removed from the Advance Reader Team, just send me an email and I will remove you from that mailing list.



When I have finished writing a new book and it has been professionally edited, I will send you an email with a link to download a draft eBook version. I will ask you to read the book within about 2 weeks and provide me with feedback. Please identify any remaining typos (there are usually still a few, even after a professional edit) as well as any suggestions you might have about plot and characters.


Purchase the book at a discount:

I will advise you of the 24 to 48 hour soft launch window, during which time you will be able to purchase the finished novel for a mere $0.99c from Amazon, prior to the hard launch at full price. This would be incredibly helpful to me as a self-published fiction author. Purchasing the book, even at this low price, gives the book traction in Amazon’s algorithms and helps it to rise up the charts. Legally, I can’t demand or even ask that you purchase the book, but I hope that you will consider doing so.

Write a review:

It would also be extremely helpful if you would consider writing a review on Amazon once the book is launched. Amazon only gives credence to reviews from customers who have purchased the book. Reviews are absolutely vital if a book is to gain any sort of traction amid the thousands of new books that are published every day on Amazon and other platforms. Your review will be extremely helpful for me as a self-published author, and I really value each and every review. Once again, I can’t insist in any way that you write a review, but I hope that you will consider doing so.


Once again:


Warmest regards,

Kevin J Simington
