UPDATE: The application form is now turned off because we received more than 1000 applications in the first 24 hours. Thanks so much for your enthusiasm!
I’m so excited to finally share this: it’s time to put the launch team together for my book Reading People: How Seeing the World Through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything.
I was thrilled when my publisher told me we’d have a launch team—that’s a group of real readers (meaning: not celebrities, “influencers”, or Oprah) who get to be a part of the book launch process. They help spread the word by telling their friends, sharing on social media, blogging about it, and anything else they can think of.
As a member of the launch team, you get to read the book before anyone else (fun!), and you’ll participate in a private Facebook group with me and your fellow launch team members, where we’ll keep you up to date with what’s happening with the book. I’ll go live a few times to talk to everyone and give you the latest. We’ll include lots of peeks behind the scenes of the publishing process. A good time will be had by all.
Members of the launch team are asked to do 4 things:
- Read the book before release date. (Woohoo!)
- Spread the word online (blog, social media, etc) and offline (word of mouth) before and after launch.
- Submit an honest reviewer on your favorite retailer site (Barnes and Noble, Target, Amazon, etc). Reviews matter so much! A Goodreads review would also be much appreciated.
- If you have a blog or online community, we’d love to see you review or share the book there.
Want to join? Apply here. My publisher will choose 300 readers the week of July 17—that’s soon! (UPDATE: after receiving 1000+ applications, my publisher has closed the form. Launch team members will receive a welcome email the week of July 17. Thanks so much for your interest!)
Thanks so much for the enthusiasm you’ve shown for my book so far. I hope you’ll consider joining the launch team. I can’t wait to meet and mingle there! We have some special things coming your way. Also, I will be eternally grateful.
