NAC Review Panel
NAC acknowledges the vital contribution of our volunteer reviewers to authors’ potential success.
Helping authors refine their works before submission to publishers, NAC’s Review Panel ensures a certain manuscript standard, a standard widely acknowledged by publishers.
Consequently, 60+ publishers worldwide undertook to give close, personal attention to NAC authors. The fact 30 specifically accredited New Authors Collective reflects general expectation of a certain standard in the manuscripts that we submit.
Authors themselves often remark on the contribution of the Review Panel to developing their writing skills, and on what may be done with the work to position it well for publishers. Some of those comments appear in ‘Author Comment on NAC Support.’
NAC Author Champions
Author Champions form another group of volunteers who contribute to the success of a book through post-publication promotion of an author and the work.
We learnt much about the role of NAC Author Champions, as ambassadors for an author &/or the author's latest work, during the local launch of our first author’s book. Still evolving, the role of Authors Champion will be further defined with promotion of Bill East's 'The Arbutus', and several other works to be published mid-2017.
Useful promotion might include discussing the book enthusiastically with family and friends, organising book signings, asking local booksellers to stock the work, lobbying a range of people and organisations to review the work or interview the author, or to host 'Meet the Author' events, etc; perhaps working as member or Team Leader of a group providing promotional support in a geographical area, squiring the author on visits in their community.
NAC acknowledges the crucial importance of our volunteers' work.
Though NAC volunteers remain anonymous we gratefully acknowledge that without their selfless contribution our task would be much harder, if not impossible. Thank you!
