Join the Book Launch Team for Faithfully Different!

Before you read on to the main post, this is a quick SPECIAL NOTE for anyone who may have missed my announcement last week on social media: As a pre-order bonus for Faithfully Different, my publisher is offering the audiobook for FREE! I’m really excited about the audiobook, because I’ll be the one reading it, which is something I haven’t done before. So if you’ve been enjoying my podcast, think of this as a multi-episode podcast series you get to go along with the book! And if you’re primarily an audiobook listener, you can give your hard copy away to a friend as a gift. It’s a win-win. All you have to do to redeem the offer is fill out the brief form here. Now, on to the main post…

I’m excited to announce that now through the end of THIS WEEK (November 14th), we’re accepting applications to be part of the launch team for Faithfully Different: Regaining Biblical Clarity in a Secular Culture (releasing February 8th)! If you missed the announcement last month, you can learn more about the book, check out the endorsements, and view the table of contents here.

So what, exactly, is a launch team?

A launch team is a group of people who are excited about the release of a new book, want the opportunity to read it before anyone else, and are willing to help the author spread the word leading up to and after the release. 

If you’re excited about Faithfully Different and its message–how Christians can regain biblical clarity in a secular culture rather than letting culture secularize our faith–I’d love to have you join the team.

What You Get

As a launch team member, you’ll receive the following:

  • A FREE physical copy of the book before release day (US continental addresses only).
  • A digital version of the book in early December—two full months before it’s publicly available (this is for both US and international launch team members)!
  • Membership in a private Facebook group with me and the rest of the launch team, where we’ll read through the book together, have engaging discussions, and collaborate on how to get the word out about Faithfully Different. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with like-minded Christians, participate in great discussions, win ongoing prizes, and ask me any questions you’d like.
  • The unique behind-the-scenes experience of launching a new book into the world!

What You Contribute

As a launch team member, you agree to:

  • Read the book between December 1, 2021, and January 31, 2022. Please don’t apply if you’re not confident you can read the book during that two month period; we want the launch team to have read the book so they’ll want to spread the word out of genuine passion for the message, not out of obligation! Though you’ll have the book on December 1st, we won’t start reading together for discussions until December 27th (due to the holidays). But we hope that having the book early will give you the opportunity to get a head start in reading if you’d like to take more time.
  • Review the book on Amazon, Goodreads, and/or other book retailer sites within a week of release day.
  • Spread the word on social media and in person with family and friends (we’ll help you with ideas for effective posting and images you can share).
  • Be an engaged member of the team by participating in the Facebook group.

How to Apply

In order to be considered for the team, you just have to do two things:

1. Preorder the book at AmazonBarnes &, or Books-A-Million. The reason a book purchase is required is that online retailers are cracking down on reviews where the product hasn’t actually been purchased. In order for your review to be considered legitimate, it’s necessary for the retailer to identify that you’ve actually bought the product. (When you receive your complimentary launch team copy, you can keep it or give it to a friend!) NOTE THAT PRE-ORDERS ALSO COME WITH A BONUS: When you pre-order, you are eligible to receive the audiobook (which will be read by me) for FREE! To get the audiobook, fill out the form here.

2. Fill out the application by clicking here. The form will close at midnight PST on November 14th. Spots are limited, so apply ASAP.

Thanks so much for your consideration, and please feel free to share this with others who might be interested!
