Calling all Front Yard People!
I can’t believe it – The Turquoise Table: Finding Community and Connection in Your Own Front Yard is ALMOST HERE.
On June 6, the world will become a little more turquoise. BUT, I need your help spreading the turquoise love. Just like we need our friends and neighbors for community, I need YOUR help to launch this book.
We’re looking for 100 people who are excited about the message of building community in your own front yard. And, like everything at the Turquoise Table, we are going to keep this simple.
What is a Launch Team?
A launch team is a group of readers that will be assembled as a team online (via email and a private Facebook group), and a small handful of you in person. You are the word spreaders and cheerleaders for the book and will be given specific tasks that let you be the all important on-the-ground marketers, or street team, to help spread the word.
What is Your Role?
- Sharing about the book on your social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat) or with your team, small group, book club, or organization.
- Sharing about the book on your blog and with your email list (but having them isn’t a requirement).
- Posting a review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, etc.
- Give feedback in our online discussions.
- Spray paint every mailbox in your neighborhood turquoise.
Okay maybe #5 isn’t the best idea, but you get it. Our team will give you everything you need to help spread the word.
What Do YOU Get Out of This?
So here’s what you will receive as a member of the book launch team:
- An advanced copy of the book. And if you haven’t seen it yet, IT’S GORGEOUS!
- Exclusive sneak peeks and early access to the pre-order bonuses.
- Access to a private Facebook group where all awesome launch team members will gather for updates, news and make new friends. I may even hop on for a few quick Q&As on Facebook live just in the group.
- A behind-the-scenes look at marketing a book.
- Did I mention how beautiful the book is??

I’d love to get you to speak at my church. Mark Sorensen lead a great series last fall related to neighbors, where he showed your video.
Everyone who comes and sells a book sells out in first service! Home Depot and Lowes sold out of picnic tables after this series,
…Plus, would love for you to visit the Woodlands! We can talk about a trip to Pioneer Woman Merc too!
Sweet friend! I’d love to come to the Woodlands, sit at your table, and visit your church. Mark is amazing. Let’s connect via email. xo, Kristin
I have been following you for a few months, and I am so excited for your book. I am going to be honest, I am not asking to be on your launch team. I am a teacher and this is a really busy time of year for me. I don’t think I could do you or your book jusstice. I don’t want to write something and need to disclose I am writing because I am part of a “launch group”. I have been preaching your philosophy since finding your blog. I want to continue championing your cause, because I think you are onto something amazing. I look around my own neighborhood. We live behind closed doors and security gates; we have isolated ourselves and we are afraid to answer our front doors. I once knew my neighbors, no longer. This 59 plus three year old woman (probably not your target audience) is cheering you on and giving you a standing ovation. Congratulations and best of luck! Bonnie
Bonnie, May + Teacher = CRAZY! Thank you for letting me know, but can I tell you how grateful I am for your enthusiasm and that you are already living as Front Yard People? I’m so glad you reached out and I’ll be cheering YOU on to finish the school year strong. What a difference you are making for your students. As the mother of 4 — THANK YOU! xo, Kristin

Oh no,is it too late to join?
Oh Letitia, we had to close the sign ups. But, PLEASE know there will be all kinds of fun ways for you to be involved. I’m so grateful you are part of our Front Yard People community! xo, Kristin

I just this minute stumbled onto your page in what I would describe as a ‘miracle’. Watched the YouTube video and loved your message. Something I am just now embarking on. May God continue to bless you in your ministry. Will continue to pray for you. Will also be ordering and promoting your book.
