LAUNCH TEAM

launch team banner.png

Welcome!

We are so glad you have joined our Launch Team for our upcoming Kickstarter preorder campaign! The publication of FLOAT, a picture book by Larry Daley, will not only be amazing to see this project come to life, but will allow Becky Gehrisch's publishing company, Bookling Media, to be considered a "real" small press in the eyes of the book industry. Using the Kickstarter format is a great place to raise interest and take preorders to guarantee funds are available for printing.

 

With your help, we can spread the word about FLOAT! As a team member, you have access to weekly announcements that you can easily share on your social media platforms with corresponding images. It will only take a small amount time, but your support will make a huge impact!

Ideally, if you and your contacts can be the first backers, we can plan to reach our goal on day one! Yes! This has been done before and can bolster our reach through Kickstarter as being their “Projects We Love!”

Please feel free to print and share this PDF summary in person with your friends and family!
