Dear Fans and Supporters of Betty Bradford Byers:
Banyon Publishing is excited to announce a new and innovative program to assist and promote our #1 author in the sale of her latest release, the first of a trilogy - The Whitlow Sanction: Volume I.
What is the Patron’s Alliance?
>>> It is a means in which you, the fan and supporter, can become more involved in this author’s success, whereby you help arrange for sales through fun book parties and/or book signings.
Does the author profit from this program?
>>> YES, she surely does. In fact, all proceeds from the sales you help generate (minus the publisher’s printing costs) go to the author.
How does a Patron benefit?
>>> Each Patron is listed in the published book (The Whitlow Sanction: Volume I, in this case) on the “Patron’s Alliance Members” page, in the next edition printed, as a testament of the author’s appreciation of your support.
Why are we doing this for Betty B. Byers?
>>> It is our way of saying thanks to our author and her fans. So many authors go the route of the “starving artist” without patron support; thus, as the publisher, we seek innovative ways to help our authors compete against the million-dollar book advertisers who are more interested in the bottom line than the author’s talent and passion.
What should I do to indicate my commitment to help?
>>> Please read, check off the commitment you’d like to make, sign the attached “Banyon Publishing, Inc. Patron’s Alliance Member Commitment and Release,” and return it as either a pdf or MS Word document via email [BANYONPUBLISHING@aol.com] or mail to or by fax (813-684-9750):
Betty B. Byers directly at P.O. 3023, Brandon, FL 33509.
Will I be expected to buy the remainder of the books if my party or signing guest does not purchase my committed amount (e.g., Platinum 100, but only sold 50)?
>>> NO. You will not suffer any liability for the unsold amount. You are her fans and supporters, and this will be by the honor system ONLY. Give it your best effort.
Can I do more than one signing or party?
>>> YES. Please use a different “Banyon Publishing, Inc. Patron’s Alliance Member Commitment and Release” for each commitment date you choose.
Can I mix this signing or party with another event?
>>> NO. If you plan another event (e.g., fund raiser or otherwise), we will need to know the details before we can answer this question. It is our preference that our author remains the center of attention for either the party or signing. Let us know your preference, and we’ll consider it.
What do I get for this commitment?
>>> Hopefully, as a fan and supporter, you will be enriched and enjoy a wonderful experience as a true “Patron of the Arts.” But further, and in consideration for your efforts, your name will be published in the book, The Whitlow Sanction: Volume I, on the “Patron’s Alliance Members” page for all to see and you’ll receive a signed copy as a token of Betty B. Byers’s appreciation.
Does a person have to already be on Betty Byers e-mailing list to participate?
>>> NO. Our goal is 500 “Patrons” nationwide, so we will accept help from any serious supporter. Please spread the word to your friends.
Can we have an “Author’s Book Party” without the attendance of Betty B. Byers?
>>> YES. We understand that in many cases, it would not be cost-effective for Ms. Byers to attend, yet her supporters would still like to lend a hand in her success and recognition. We applaud all such efforts.
