Launching a Book — A Scary PLACE
I am planning a launch for my new book If You Give A Girl A Giant….
It is scary.
I am serious. I’ve read hundreds of columns and articles and information from the gurus who supposedly know all about book launches and I wonder if I can make all the right moves to get the thing off the ground.
I’ve decided that the best way for me is to try to tell about the message of the book and let the other strategies and techniques for launching happen naturally.
The book started when I discovered in my reading about Goliath’s four brothers that each of these giants were named for giants we face in modern life. Discouragement, Defeat, Fear, and Self. Those are the four and I have faced them— Haven’t you?
But that’s not where the story ends — Each giant was slain by one of King David’s mighty men…and their names show us the weapon that we can use to slay these giants too.
I’ve lived this story. I’ve faced discouragement when it seemed my world had ended and I’ve faced defeat when I didn’t think I could go any further. Fear raises his ugly head at me constantly, too. But the biggest giant of all is SELF because I’m often my biggest problem…..too much talking, too much self-aggrandisement, too much…. well you get it.
I’d love for you to read my book. Not because it is my book, but because it will help you face and slay the giants who show up in your backyard.
