Announcing the official street team of Darynda Jones Books: Darynda’s Grimlets!

(How cute is that?)


YES!!!! It’s finally happened! I have a street team!

I’ve had so many people ask me how to join my street team lately (thank you so much, btw!), I figured I might should get one. So I sent out a call to arms and the LOVELY team of Dana Alma, Karin Anderson, and Jowanna Kestner, aka Mama Grimlet, rose to the occasion, God bless ‘em.

So, what is a street team, you ask?

That was my question as well. Apparently it is a team of readers from all over the country and/or world who basically take to the streets and pimp an author’s books, in this case mine. Woot!

What’s in it for the team? Well, if you guys are anything like me, you can’t not tell people about your favorite authors and books. So, there is that satisfaction and the validation that now you have a ‘reason’ to shout about a particular set of books: you are part of the team.

Also, there’s free stuff. 🙂

That’s right. The coordinators will send the team members things like bookmarks, notebooks, pens, key chains, etc., to share with their friends, book clubs, librarians…anyone who will listen. And of course, the team member gets to keep some of the booty for herself.

There’s a little more to it than that, but my administrators do a much better job of explaining than I do. If you’d like to learn more, go to the team’s Facebook page here.

*If you’d like to join the team, fill out the form here.

*Registration has been an overwhelming success and they had to close it while they get the districts sorted out. They will reopen particular regions that have the least membership soon. I’ll post here when they do! Thank you! 

Thank you guys so much and enjoy the site!




  1. I tried to join but got this message:

    Oops, something went wrong.
    The form “Darynda Jones Street Team Membership ” is no longer accepting responses.
    Try contacting the owner of the form if you think this is a mistake.

  2. I had this same problem. 🙁

    Is the Street Team closed to new members?

  3. Hi guys! We had so many sign up in a matter of hours, we had to close the new membership until we got all of our eggs in a row. Or in a basket. Or our baskets in a row. I have no idea what that saying is.


  4. Tiffani says:

  5. Redbutterfly says:

    Hello, I am not sure you will reopen registration here and I am also not sure whether there are plans for your books to be published in my country – but anyway, I live in Slovakia – and would like to help…

  18. Lisa R says:

    Hi, I just finished the third book & tried to join the grimlets but got an error message. I hope it opens again soon! Love this series!!!! Was pleasantly surprised to see the next book coming out in October. Can’t wait!! Passed the books on to my mom who also loves them. I would take any of the men chasing after Charley, but Reyes, oh my!!! he takes hot to a whole new level. I also like the biker Donovan, she always knows where she stands with him, no games. I will spread the word to my friends aboutthis great series. Thank you Darynda for creating such wonderful characters, & some of the things she says has me laughing out loud. It takes a very creative person to do that. thank you for sharing your awesome talent with the rest of us!!!

  19. Renee says:

    I got the same message =[ total bummer I would really like to be a grimlet! I have been getting on my sister’s nerves talking about your Charley Davidson series..but she is pregnant, so everything seems to be getting on her nerves. Anywho, I can’t wait to go back to work and tell everyone about this series! Keep doing what you do!
