Count Down: Next ARC Chat

Wednesday, May 29st @ 12PM EST

・✫・・✫・ ・✫・・✫・

Authors… this is where you can learn how to properly drop your ARC sign-up forms/requests in our FanGrrrl Romance Recs Facebook groups (for FREE!)

The main purpose/mission statement of our Facebook reader groups is to provide a positive, pro-author place where the regular reader can get real & unbiased recommendations. Therefore, it is important that the group wall is primarily recommendations and the voice of readers. However, since we are extremely pro-author, we do allow authors the chance to pick up ARC readers (ARC = Advanced Reader Copy.)

Wednesday Want Ads

Every Wednesday, the FanGrrrl Romance Recs Facebook Page posts the Wednesday Want Ads post in the morning, Eastern Standard Time (we try for 8AM EST.)

The Wednesday Want Ads post is pinned to the Featured section of the group for 24 hours and then after the 24 hour period concludes, comments are closed and it is removed from the Featured section.

What is allowed in the comments of Wednesday Want Ads?

Authors in the group can drop their ARC sign-up forms/requests on the comments of the Wednesday Want Ads post. In addition to ARC requests, Alpha and Beta reader requests are allowed as well. The Wednesday Want Ads post is a courtesy for authors specifically in the group. Therefore, only authors themselves can comment on the post. However anything shady at all and it’s cause for immediate block/removal from the group.

Wednesday Want Ads are meant as a courtesy to the authors who are members in the FanGrrrl Romance Recs groups. Therefore, only Authors can drop information on how to sign-up for their ARCs on the Wednesday Want Ads post. However, there is an exception to this for PAs (Personal Assistants) based on the following critera:

In FanGrrrl 💋 Romance Recs (Urban Fantasy, Romantasy, & Paranormal Romance!), PAs (Personal Assistants) are allowed to comment with ARC Sign-ups on Wednesday Want Ads if the author they are representing has at least one book with 1K ratings and 4-5 stars.

In FanGrrrl 🖤 Romance Recs After Dark 🔥 (Edgy Contemp Romance & Why Choose!), PAs (Personal Assistants) are allowed to comment with ARC Sign-ups on Wednesday Want Ads if the author they are representing has at least one book with 500 ratings and 4-5 stars.

ARC Community Chat

Authors in the group can drop their ARC sign-up forms/requests on the “Sign-up for ARCs Here!” Facebook Community Chat in either of our FanGrrrl Romance Recs Facebook reader groups. In addition to ARC requests, Alpha and Beta reader requests are allowed as well on the chat.

The Facebook Community Chat is created for each group by Rebecca Dixon on Wednesdays around lunchtime, Eastern Standard Time. Earlier in the day, Rebecca drops a post in the FanGrrrl Romance Recs Authors Corner stating what time the chat will be for that particular Wednesday and the post is pinned to the Featured section.

Each community chat is only open for 30 mins for authors to drop their ARC requests. After 30 minutes, the chat is paused for 48 hours and then deleted. During the 48 hour time frame, anyone who was invited to the chat can join and scroll through the ARC requests dropped on the chat by authors (authors are the only individuals allowed to comment on the chat other than FanGrrrl team.)

By the end of the 48 hour window, the chat in FanGrrrl 💋 Romance Recs (Urban Fantasy, Romantasy, & Paranormal Romance!) usually hits the capacity limit (around 2000 members.) The admin Rebecca invites Active Members, Conversation Starters, and New Members to the chat. In FanGrrrl 🖤 Romance Recs After Dark 🔥 (Edgy Contemp Romance & Why Choose!), the admin Rebecca invites all members to the chat.

The community chats are meant as a courtesy to the authors who are members in the FanGrrrl Romance Recs groups. Therefore, only Authors can drop information on how to sign-up for their ARCs in the community chats. However, there is an exception to this for PAs (Personal Assistants) based on the following critera:

In FanGrrrl 💋 Romance Recs (Urban Fantasy, Romantasy, & Paranormal Romance!), PAs (Personal Assistants) are allowed to comment with ARC Sign-ups on the community chat if the author they are representing has at least one book with 1K ratings and 4-5 stars.

In FanGrrrl 🖤 Romance Recs After Dark 🔥 (Edgy Contemp Romance & Why Choose!), PAs (Personal Assistants) are allowed to comment with ARC Sign-ups on community chat if the author they are representing has at least one book with 500 ratings and 4-5 stars.

Please note: it is important to drop the ARC request on the Wednesday Want Ad post in the Featured section as well as in the community chat as the chats fill to capacity and many members are not able to join. By dropping the requests on the post as well, authors give all members the chance to sign-up for their ARC.
