  • Access to a monthly book club meet-up over Zoom where we get to nerd out as much as we want about the books we love.
  • More perks to be announced soon (think exclusive BAOS merch, free ebook and paperback copies of brand new books before they’re released, free audiobook subscriptions, and exclusive author interviews where you get to ask your favorite authors live questions).

More details on the authors, the types of articles, and your special perks to be announced later this week.

You can also join for free and get to read 4 articles a month. Here’s the link to sign up.

That’s all from my end today. I’ll see you again next Sunday.

Until then, keep reading, keep writing, and keep being awesome.
