Behind the scenes to a book launch
Sit at the Nerd Table with me! We're Growing Up in Public's inner circle
I’m thrilled to officially announce some exciting news with you today. As I may have mentioned a few times lately… my new book, Growing Up In Public: Coming of Age in a Digital World is releasing September 12th with Penguin Random House.
Growing Up in Public shows parents how to help tweens and teens navigate boundaries, identity, privacy, and reputation in their digital world.
I won’t go into a lot more detail about the book here, but today, I am inviting you to be part of my team to help bring Growing Up in Public to the world!
Specifically, I would be honored if you joined my free Heitnerds Launch Team to help us spread the message.
Leading up to Launch Day (September 12, 2023), the Heitnerds will build a community around the book and its potential impact.
By joining Heitnerds, you’ll get:
A full digital copy of Growing Up In Public, weeks before anyone else!
Access to an exclusive, live, Q&A webinar to discuss the book.
Must-have Checklists for Every Parent in the Age of Social Media
Free access to my digital course, Raising Tough Topics with Your Teen ($47 value)
Members-only behind-the-scenes emails just for Heitnerds
Private, Heitnerds-only, live Q&A. In addition to the broader Q&A above that all those who preorder the book receive, this Q&A is JUST for Heitnerds. Ask me anything in a more intimate setting!
My deep appreciation and gratitude
In exchange, I’m requesting you:
Preorder the book as a sign of direct support
Help promote the book on your social channels and/or newsletter/podcast the week of release (I’ll give you creative assets to make this easy!)
Post an honest review on Amazon the week of release (Our preference is a preorder from Amazon as reviews from verified buyers on Amazon carry more “weight” than reviews from non-verified buyers, but you can preorder from the bookstore of your choosing.)
Asking for help isn’t always easy, so thank you for your consideration.
PS. Don't want to commit to reviewing and sharing but do want preorder goodies? Total Amazon abstainer? I feel you! There will be ways to get preorder bonuses without being part of a whole "launch team" thing, and that's very cool, too.
