I’m so glad you have joined the launch team for my new book on Christian worldviews. I won’t go into detail about the book here. You can learn about it on the other pages of this website. This “Launch Team” page of the website is just for you and me to discuss team business.
First, thank you for being here! I couldn’t do this without you.
Second, I’m building a little competition into the book launch and will be posting a leader-board next week to show how everyone is doing. You can get points for doing the assigned tasks every week, answering trivia questions, and just opening emails from me. (Yes, I know if you’re opening my emails and clicking on the links.) So, your first assignment is to choose a user name that will identify you on the leader-board.
Have some fun with it. Maybe choose a character from a favorite book or movie or use a fun gamer name that says something about your personality. But don’t give away your real identity!
Third, please pray for me this week as I put together a press kit for the book and write a “pitch” to send out to podcasters, bloggers, and radio shows. The more coverage I can get for the book, the more people who will hear about it, and the more lives that can be changed.
Fourth, your main assignment this week is to invite at least 3 other people you know to join this team. Send me an email to let me know how you did this and you will receive five points in the competition. If anyone joins the team and tells me you invited them, you will receive 20 points! That's 20 points per person referred throughout the competition.
When you invite someone to join the team, it's best to send them to the home page of this website where they can learn about the book and then click on the link "Join the Story-Tellers - a Launch Team for this new book."
Fifth, I have a little movie trivia for you. You get 5 points for each correct answer you know without looking it up and 2 if you looked it up. Send me your answer and tell me (honestly now) if you looked up the answer.
1. Who played Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)?
2. The famous quote in Casablanca (1942), “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship,” was said by whom and to whom? Name either the characters or the actors.
3. The 2019 movie, Overcomer, is about a troubled youth being coached in what sport?
Send your user name, trivia answers, and other responses to today’s assignments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next week, I will have a schedule for you for the rest of the launch and more assignments. Your free digital copy of the book should be ready then, too.
This is the home of the Launch Team for Finding Your Part in God's Master Story. I will post instructions, updates, and downloadable material at least once a week. Feel free to comment on the posts to ask questions, share ideas, and cheer the team on.
