In the world of Avalonia, Aurora attends the magical school, the Academy of Evolon, where she learns to control her powers so she can reclaim her crown.
In the Academy of Evolon, Aurora is supported by the teachers and her fellow classmates as she learns more about the wonderful world of Avalonia. Like Aurora’s teachers and classmates, it is you, dear reader, who support the author and her story as she spins each new tale.
We invite you to join The Avalonia Academy street team, a place designed for readers of The Avalonia Chronicles to connect with one another and the author.
So what IS a street team?
A street team is a group of fans who join together to support an artist, author, band, brand, or other similar people/products. In our case, the street team will offer a way for Farah to connect with her readers and work together to spread the love of books.
What do I get as a reader?
By being a member of The Avalonia Academy, you will become part of an amazing group of readers who also love The Avalonia Chronicles and Farah Oomberhoy’s books. Plus, we have some super awesome things for street team members only!
- Special entry into drawings for bookish swag like limited edition The Last of the Firedrakes wooden bookmarks, other great young adult books, and more!
- Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) of the newest books by Farah Oomerbhoy
- You’ll be the first to hear about upcoming events and news about The Avalonia Chronicles and Farah Oomerbhoy.
- A private, street team-only forum membership where you can talk directly with Farah and other street team members about The Avalonia Chronicles, writing, and books.
- Special access to upcoming blog tours and online events (in other words, you will get first dibs to sign up for these events!)
What will I be doing if I join?
Here is a sample list of a few things we hope you’ll enjoy doing with the team.
- Spread The Avalonia Chronicles to other readers. We recommend trying bookstores, libraries, book clubs, book conventions, and anywhere else you know readers like to hang out.
- Recommend The Avalonia Chronicles to your local library and bookstores. (This is hugely helpful in getting The Avalonia Chronicles out in the world!)
- Post reviews of The Avalonia Chronicles on your blog, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Goodreads, LibraryThing, Shelfari, and anywhere else you think of. Keep in mind these reviews should be your honest opinion, even if that means less than five stars!
- Add The Avalonia Chronicles to your shelves on Goodreads, LibraryThing, Shelfari, and anywhere else you list books!
- Follow Farah Oomerbhoy on her social media channels and interact with her. We love it when you share posts you love and comment. It warms our hearts.
- Tell your friends about The Avalonia Chronicles and The Avalonia Academy! The more members we have, the more fun!
- Participate in future blog tours, Twitter chats, and online events as you can. The more the merrier.
- See Farah at her live events when possible. We’d love to meet you in person!
- Share photos of The Avalonia Chronicles online. We love to see creative Instagram posts and will repost our favorites!
What we don’t want you doing:
- Anything that makes you feel pressured or uncomfortable.
- Spamming online about The Avalonia Chronicles (we know you are super excited, but we want to be sure we are respectful with our postings on social media!)
- Moving The Avalonia Chronicles and/or Farah’s books in bookstores or libraries. It creates more work for the employees who work there and we don’t want to do that.
- Anything mean, harmful, or dangerous. This team is all about fun and spreading the love of a great series with other readers.
Anyone can join The Avalonia Academy as long as they have read and enjoyed a book in The Avalonia Chronicles.
