Introducing: The ML SF Launch Team!


As you probably know authors wouldn’t be anywhere without our readers. Ignoring all the politics and back-room dealings of Big Publishing, the reality is that only one group of people really matters to authors – and that’s YOU, the reader.

So, I figured, why not encourage my readers to be part of my journey? After all, it’s all thanks to you that I get to write in the first place – shouldn’t you get to feel part of that somehow? It’s your encouragement and kind reviews that keep me going, but, until now, I’ve never had a way of keeping tabs on all the wonderful things you’ve been saying about my work – meaning I haven’t been able to thank you personally.

Well, I think I’ve come up with a solution. I’ve launched the ML SF Launch Team. It is dedicated to my Science Fiction releases, such as the Tesla books and Sucker, etc. The Romantic Comedies will be appearing in another separate list launched later. Here’s the deal:

Sign up below to join the Launch Team, and, in return you’ll get:

  • Free advance preview copies of EVERYTHING I release – including books and audiobooks (and any other cool formats that come along)
  • Personal acknowledgements thanking you by name inside every book release (both digital and paper)
  • Competitions and special giveaways
  • Plus for Fusion, I will be giving away signed paperbacks for the first five to post!

This is completely different to being part of my mailing list – you’ll be part of a select group of super-awesome readers. And, in addition to getting free copies of EVERYTHING I release before anyone else, you get to see exactly what impact your support has on the success of my work. In short, think of this as a VIP Membership Scheme.

If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of, there’s only one caveat.

Being part of the Launch Team means you’ll be asked to leave a review of the books you receive within a certain time period after receiving your copies (usually two or more weeks).

You must have an account (or register for one) with Amazon, iTunes, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, or Goodreads. Preferably Amazon.

As far as catches go, I’m hoping that’s not too bad! So, if you’d like to be part of the team, just sign up below!

After you’ve signed up, you’ll be asked to confirm your email address and I’ll send you more details. As always, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me at ilingane (at) or get in touch via Facebook here:

Thanks for all your hard work and support!
