#K8chat is a weekly chat for authors AND readers. Every week we join together to talk about a new book/publishing topic, usually with an awesome special guest and prizes! #k8chat is held every Thursday at 9pm Eastern. You can check out our previous chats log on the #K8chat page.
This week on #K8chat I (@K8Tilton) will be joined by special guests author Jenn Cooksey (@Jenn_Cooksey), and Alan VanToai (@VanToai) of Simple Crew (@SimpleCrewApp). We’ll be talking about street teams and all authors, writers, and readers are welcome to join and share their thoughts and experiences. Authors, we want to know how you run your street team. Readers, we want to know if you are on a street team and what you expect from a team.
So join in the conversation!
About Jenn Cooksey:
Jenn Cooksey is a Southern California girl born and bred, and proudly boasts being a member of Grossmont High School’s alumni.
She currently resides in the 7th Ring of Hell (aka; Arizona) with her husband (whom she married on a dare while in Las Vegas), their three daughters, and more pets than she has the patience to count.
Aside from her husband and one cat, everyone living under the Cooksey’s roof is female. She’s sure her husband will be not only be awarded sainthood when he kicks the bucket, but that Jesus will welcome him into heaven with a beer and a congratulatory high-five.
She also believes that Bacon should be capitalized. Always.

About Alan VanToai:
Hey guys! I’m Alan, a co-founder of SimpleCrew, the mobile app for street teams. SimpleCrew makes it easy to track the progress of your street team in the field and online.
Before SimpleCrew, I worked extensively in grassroots marketing and street team promotions. I started on the ground as a street teamer for my favorite bands and venues, and over the years followed that passion up the ranks at FanManager.net, where I became a National Account Coordinator managing national street team campaigns for touring artists and music festivals, and Red Bull, where I was a Regional Brand Manager managing regional marketing campaigns for Red Bull.
There’s a lot to love about street team promotions, and I’m excited to join the conversation and share my thoughts. Thanks Kate for organizing 🙂
