Frequently Asked Questions

When will your next book be released? When will a specific book be released in my language?

To receive book release announcements, subscribe to my newsletter in EnglishFrenchGermanItalianSpanish, or Portuguese. No spam ever, only announcements of book releases, ARCs, and occasional special deals or giveaways. Be sure to add erikarhysauthor at gmail dot com to your address book to let your mail program know that you want to receive email from me!

How can I sign up to receive free Advance Review Copies of your books?

There are a limited number of free ARCs available for every book I release. For most readers, the best way to find out about ARC opportunities is to subscribe to my email newsletter in English, French, German, ItalianSpanish, or Portuguese. Be sure to add erikarhysauthor at gmail dot com to your address book to let your mail program know that you want to receive email from me!

If you prefer to find out about ARCs via social media, like and follow my Facebook page, where ARC opportunities are also posted (usually a day or two after the email newsletter gets them).

What kind of books do you write?

My books are steamy contemporary romance with elements of suspense and comedy, and contain both swearing and explicit sensuality. I write the kind of heros and heroines I enjoy reading—strong men and women who have their flaws, quirks, and scars, but who are also sympathetic and well-intentioned.

What are the benefits of joining your street team? How can I join?

Street team members automatically receive free Advance Review Copies (ARCs) of all Erika’s books. No request process, no hoping other readers don’t get there first—just a personal email from Erika with a download link that’s exclusively for you.

However, being part of the street team isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, because membership means committing to posting a substantive review of each new Erika Rhys book on its release day. As a result, it’s an opportunity best suited to readers who enjoy reviewing, consider Erika one of their favorite authors, and read everything she writes the minute it comes out! Street team members are also asked to help spread the word about new releases on social media.

If being part of the street team sounds like your kind of fun, email erikarhysauthor at gmail dot com, include copies of at least two of your previous reviews of Erika’s books, and ask to join!

Will you read my work-in-progress and give me feedback?

On the recommendation of my lawyers, I can not read or give feedback on other authors’ work. The best ways to get feedback on your writing are to join a writers’ group in your community, to take a creative writing course at your local college, or to hire a professional development editor.

That said, if you’re a writer, please feel free to email me about your book after its publication—I’m always looking for new books to read!

What is the best way to contact you?

Email me at erikarhysauthor at gmail dot com, or message me on Facebook. I love to hear from readers, and answer every email personally.

On what platforms are your books available?

Most of my books are available on Amazon, iBooks, Google, Kobo, and Nook, as well as other e-book retailers. Print editions are available through Amazon.

Are any of your books available through Kindle Unlimited?

From time to time, I make specific books available through Kindle Unlimited.
