Join the Christian Mama’s Guide Launch Team

Attention bloggers, Facebook aficionados and otherwise media savvy friends:  I’d like to invite you to become an official card-carrying member of the Christian Mama’s Guide Launch Team. We’re going to have a lot of fun, which is reason enough to join,  but there are also some great perks: a PDF of one of the books sent lovingly from Erin to your kindle or iPad before launch day. A free guest post written by Erin that you can post on your blog. (If you want it.) The opportunity to do an official book giveaway on your blog.  (If you’d like to.) I’ll share your blog reviews with the launch group, as well as on my Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter pages, driving traffic to your blog. I’ll add your blog to my official favorite bloggers feed on the Christian Mama’s Guide site. Plus, I might even feed your coffee habit and your shopping habit.  I’ll be giving away a $5 Starbucks card to one launch team member every week for two weeks leading up to launch and on launch day, one lucky launch team member will win a $25 gift card to Zulily as well as signed copies of each book in the series. Fill out the form below and I’ll be in touch! Name(required) Email(required) Blog URL(required) Pinterest Page(required) Facebook Page(required)...
