Sometimes the most scary part about chasing a dream is when it actually comes true!
At least that’s how I feel right now.
If you missed the BIG NEWS, in less than a month my new book All Groan Up: Searching for Self, Faith, and a Freaking Job! (Zondervan) will be released wherever books are sold. It’s even been picked up by the national retailer Sam’s Club already, which is amazing!
I didn’t know if I should go with the author looking photo, or the I’m writing this at 2am mad scientist look. What do you think?
And after working at this book for ten years, to see it finally happen, I feel ecstatic…and slightly mortified.
Launching a book feels like such an overwhelming process.
I want to honor the trust of my publisher investing in me and this book, (especially since many publishers believe that twentysomethings don’t buy books. Let’s prove them wrong!).
But even more importantly, I want to see this book encourage as many people as possible.
It’s been a decade long journey to see this book happen and the only thing that kept me going was an unbreakable belief that this book will speak hope, truth, and life to our generation.
I believe this book offers a collective sigh of relief, some much needed guffaws as we laugh through our shared pains, and inspiration that you’re not alone in this twentysomething struggle.
This community here at All Groan Up has been such a faithful, encouraging support to me for years. THANK YOU. I need your help more than ever. As little or as much as you are able. I’ll be leaning on you.
One way to help is to apply for the All Groan Up Launch Team to be a part of this exciting adventure with me.
We can only take 50-75 people, so get the form in as soon as possible. With the book releasing in less than four weeks, the deadline to apply is the end of the day this Saturday, 3/28.
Here are the benefits of being on the team:
- A free book (either print or ebook) sent to you
- Behind-the-scenes look at launching a book
- I will host an exclusive conference call for launch team members to answer any and all questions you want to ask about the publishing process and getting a book deal.
- A private Facebook Group to network with other influencers on the launch team, as well as myself. The contacts and conversation there will be awesome!
- When you leave a review at your website, I will link back to you from All Groan Up for some link love.
As a member of the launch team, you help spread the word about the book with a review on your website and Amazon/Goodreads, through your social media channels, and then of course, train a team of carrier pigeons to sprinkle pieces of paper with All Groan Up across your town or county, etc).
There will be plenty of instruction and optional pre-made materials to make sharing as easy as possible for you. Again here is the link to apply for the launch team. Fill it out soon before the spots fill up.
Let’s Launch This
I can’t wait to introduce this baby to the world and I’m so incredibly honored by your support. Successfully launching a book is not possible without a team of amazing Groan Ups like you!
