    • Writing group members
    • Friends & family
    • Those who would take a special interest in your story-line–your niche markets.
      • How to determine your niche markets?
        • Is your amateur sleuth a real estate agent, a hospital administrator, or a chef?
        • Does your protagonist always diet? Does he love wine? Does she knit? Does she travel, research, teach, or strips at a dance club?
    • After you determine your niche markets, then begin building relationships with the people who are in them. Share advice and tips, ask questions, attend meetings and gatherings. Members of your niche markets are potential AERs.
