Inner Reading Circle

What is an Inner Reading Circle?

This in an exclusive group of volunteer readers who have joined my list to be the first to get an ebook copy of my latest book (generally before it is published). They agree to read and review my latest novel. If they see any typos or errors, they will pass those on the Maggie. They will also write up and post their reviews on at least one of the following (two or more is prefered):

  • Amazon
  • Apple
  • Barnes and Noble
  • Bookbub
  • Google playstore
  • Goodreads
  • Kobo
  • any other book store they normall buy their books from
  • their blog or website if they have one

And if on social media, they agree to help spread the word on social media. This may mean liking a post I put on my FB Maggie Thom page or sharing on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.

I write mystery/suspense/thrillers.

I love writing books with twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end.

And I write multipoint of view stories. You will get to meet several of the characters and understand what motivates them to do what they are doing.

If you enjoy reading mysteries, suspense, or thrillers, than my books just might be for you.

My Books

My Inner Reading Circle is a select group of readers, who have volunteered to read and review advanced copies of my books. Generally a month or so before launch day, I will send out an Advanced Review Copy (ARC) to my list and ask that they read and review on launch day or very soon thereafter.

This team is so important to the success of a new book.

Why you might want to be part of my Inner Reading Circle:


You love

    • to read
    • to be the first to get an ecopy of a new release
    • to review
    • to help an author get the word out about her new book
    • to read within a deadline (don’t worry you usually have a month or so)


    • you’re already a fan of Maggie Thom mystery/suspense/thrillers

I currently have an amazing team of Readers and Reviewers. I am honored that they are part of my journey. I truly appreciate all the reading and reviewing they do for me.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does it cost

It’s free. In fact, you will be the first to recieve an advanced ecopy of one of my new books.

And if you want to read one of my old titles, all you have to do is ask.

My only request is that you write a review and post it.

Time frame

I usually try to give you a heads up about 3 months out that I have a new book coming out. I’ll ask if you are available to read and review for certain date. Then I try to get you the ARC (advanced review copy), 8 to 12 weeks out from launch date. My other, already published books, I usually ask that you try to post a review within 2 to 3 months of asking for a copy.

What if I don't have time

I know that people’s lives get busy. I don’t expect that you’ll always be available. I do hope that you will let me know and still be able to read and review at a later date.

Fiction and Nonfiction

I write suspense/thriller/mysteries

For this team, you are signing up to read fiction. I might on occassion though, ask if you’d be interested in reading my nonfiction and reviewing. This is totally optional. You are welcome to say no.
