Join the Elysium Underground: Street Team for J.A. Souder

Have you heard? There is a new street team popping up in the book world and it is Elysium Underground. It is for Renegade by J.A. Souders. Here is a little more info on Renegade.


Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has been trained to be Daughter of the People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes, all her life she’s thought that everything was perfect; her world. Her people. The Law.
But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world, she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie. Her memories have been altered. Her mind and body aren’t under her own control. And the person she knows as Mother is a monster.
Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb… and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all.


Below I had copied what was put up on the official website for the street team. :) 

Welcome Citizens of Elysium!

To help spread the word about Renegade, I'm recruiting members to my street team, the Elysium Underground. 

There's something not quite right happening in our lovely city and we're going to get to the bottom of it! But we're going to need all the help we can get!

Want to join in? Here's the deets: 

The Elysium Underground has different rankings that you'll earn based on how many points you earn.  And each task will be awarded a certain number of points you can use toward each ranking.

To keep things exciting, rankings expire monthly, but points won't expire unless you use them toward a ranking.  But don't worry! Every month you'll have the opportunity to earn more points and the tasks will be different and fun and exciting! See the task page for this months tasks and point schedule.  See the ranking pages to see the number of points needed for that rank and the prizes associated with that rank.


1) Recruit

2) Radical
3) Dissenter
4) Rebel
5) Instigator
6) Renegade

Each month, I'll hold a drawing for a special and awesome prize (i.e. An emergency evac pack (goodie bag filled with books, GCs, etc), an ipod with playlist, GCs, etc.).  Each ranking earn a special number of entries (depending on your rank) for these monthly drawings.  Higher rankings  also earn entries for two special prizes: being listed in the acknowledgement section and having a character named after them in future books. The task page will also list the prize for that month.

In addition, everyone will get SWAG each time they "level up" the first time, too. (Plus as I have more SWAG designed, as a member of my street team, you'll have first dibs on those as well.)


  1. That sounds rather taxing but potentially fun. I can't imagine the crazy amount of work you would have to do to reach 800 points. Are there going to be more tasks that award insane amounts of points? Wow.

    1. Yeaahh! That was exactly what I thought too! I have no idea.
