Join my Street Team!

Click here for the most recent contests.

What's a street team?

Basically, it’s my team of "influencers" who help spread the word about my books while participating in contests for great prizes like Christian books, exclusive books by me, swag, gift certificates, knitted yummies, and much more.

And it’s free to join!

What do you get?

I hold short contests throughout the year where you get to win cool prizes like Christian books, exclusive books by me (never before published), totes, T-shirts, knitted yummies, gift certificates, even a Kindle or Nook. During contests, Street Team members can also request a free copy of my latest book in exchange for a review on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Goodreads.com, or Christianbook.com.

Keep a watch for messages from my Street Team YahooGroup for new contests. It's an announcement-only YahooGroup, so there won't be a ton of emails in your Inbox. I send a message out about once a week during the contest, and only once a month when there is no contest going on.

What do Street Team members do?

For each contest, you can pick one or all of the following to do. It's entirely up to you how much you'd like to do to help promote my books:

a) Get your friends to join my email newsletter.

b) Talk to your local Christian bookstore manager and ask him/her to email me. I will send the bookstore an autographed copy of my book and little gifts for the store staff.

c) Talk to your local librarian and ask him/her to email me. I will send the library an autographed copy of my book and little gifts for the library staff.

d) Get your friends to join my Street Team, too.

e) Review my book on Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com, Christianbook.com, Goodreads.com, etc. (Sorry, blog reviews don't count.)

f) Buy copies of my book to give away.

g) Get your book club to choose my book to read and discuss. I will sell them the books at a discount, autograph each book club member's copy of my book, and also arrange a Skype chat with the book club.

I'm game! What do I need to do to join?

Email camy {at} camy tang {dot} com with your mailing address and I’ll send you a batch of bookmarks. Feel free to use the bookmarks to pass out to people to get them to join my newsletter, or to give to your local bookstore manager or local librarian. See my new contest rules in the Files section of my YahooGroup for more information.

Also, until supplies last, I’ll send all new Street Team members a free ribbon bookmark (which my mom made!)

I’ll also send you an invite to my Street Team YahooGroup. If you have problems joining, please let me know because I can add you directly if you ask me to.

Any rules?

Please, no cheating. Cheaters will be disqualified from the contest and removed from the Street Team.

If you request a free book during a contest in exchange for a review and you do not post the review before the deadline, I reserve the right to remove you from the Street Team.

International readers are welcome to join my Street Team and enter the contests. (However, I will send all your prizes to you after each contest to save money on postage.)

Minors are welcome to join my Street Team but please get your parent’s permission first. If I get an angry email from your parents, you are SO off my Christmas list.

Have fun with this! And thanks so much for being part of my Street Team and helping to spread the word about my books!
