O Me of Little Faith

O Me of Little Faith


O Me of Little Faith Blog Tour

posted by Jason Boyett

I need your help. We’re about a month away from the release of my next book, O Me of Little Faith. Perhaps I’ve told you about it before?

My plans are to help promote the book by doing a loosely scheduled blog tour that begins the last week of April (April 26) and continues through the first week of May (May 7). During this week I want to saturate my social network, and yours, with people talking about my book. That’s where you come in.

I need people who are willing to do each of these four things during that two-week time period:

1. Read an advance review copy of my book.

2. Post a review of the book on Amazon when it releases.

3. Post a review/interview/song/video or something related to the book on your personal blog.

4. Tell people about that post on your Twitter and/or Facebook account.

If you’re willing to do that stuff — all four steps — I’ll see what I can do about getting an advance copy of O Me of Little Faith sent your way. And, yes, if you want to interview me about the book I’m totally game. We can set it up.

Are you willing? If so, send me an email: jb [at] jasonboyett [dot] com. Please include your mailing address and the name of your blog.

Depending on the response, I might not be able to get a copy to everybody who requests it. It totally depends on the number of review copies Zondervan has available. But I’ll see what I can do.

Update (8:48 am, 3/31): Thanks to all of you who have volunteered to help with the blog tour. I’ve reached my publisher’s predetermined limit, so the free advance copy offer has concluded. However, if you still want to preorder the book, I imagine you’ll receive it a week ahead of the actual release. And I won’t stop you from posting about it, reviewing it on Amazon, and generally talking it up like a crazy person.

————–

In the meantime, I want to invite you today to use the comments section along the same lines, by answering the following questions:

1. What is the first website or blog you check each day?

2. If you have one, what is the URL of your personal blog?

3. Why do you or do you not want an advance copy of O Me of Little Faith?

First website I check:Toss-up between facebook and my own blog, probably. (I'm not a narcissist; I'm just checking for comments… oh man, does that make me a narcissist?)My blog (since I'm a narcissist already): http://jeffgoins.myadventures.orgWhy do I want to read your book? Because it sounds interesting… and because I can identify with the premise — feeling spiritually weak.

First Web site I check: gmail. First blog(s): Jason's, Matthew Paul Turner's and Joshua Longbrake's. (They're all on my Chrome bookmark bar.)My blog: http://www.broken-downpoetry.blogspot.comI already pre-ordered your book, so what's the point. ;) I'm OBVIOUSLY going to write about it and solicit an interview – that should be assumed. It just won't be happening as soon as everyone else's.P.S. The book better get to me before I leave for Iraq!

1. Google Reader! It organizes all my favourites in one place. Most favourite though: http://thedailywh.at2. My sister and I kind of do a thing to amuse ourselves over here: http://mgermann.blogspot.com/ To be truthful though I think our mom is our only reader.3. Why? Because I have all the Pocket Guides! I read every post on this blog! I admire your writing Jason! But I won't sign up for FB OR Twitter just because you said so… I am one of the only hold-outs left in the entire world and I'm going to stay that way. Unfortunately that disqualifies me for your new book for free. It's ok though, I will buy it with my own cash money!

1. facebook. Yes, i'm a nut.2. jmjacob.blogspot.com3. Honestly? because it's free. I would sign up for your promo thing, but I'm not sure if I could review it in 2 weeks. In fact, I have 2 copies of MPT's Churched, which I never did do a review for. My guilty conscience has been bothering me ever since.

- first website? The almighty gmail.- my blog – http://joecassara.blogspot.com- I need deadlines. I'm halfway through a reply letter to your brother in law that's been sitting on my desk for 2 months. Having read enough of your stuff, I know I'd be challenged by your book, and getting it all done in 2 weeks is better than letting it draaaag.

The first web site I check every day is HootSuite (Twitter) or Facebook. I'm at shaunarumbling.blogspot.com and treasureseekers.wordpress.com. I love Nickel Creek's song Doubting Thomas, which includes the line "O me of little faith" (not sure where that phrase originated?), and I enjoyed The Pocket Guide to the Bible.

1. The first website I check in the morning is Gmail… I reply to most of my emails while drinking my morning coffee, in a semi-asleep groggy state. By the time I get to work, I have no recollection of what I wrote and to whom. Or the commute.2. I don't have a "personal" blog per se. And I've been neglecting my religious postings in favour of my shiny, new, entirely fictional town of Bullpen Island, at http://www.bullpenisland.ca3. I don't want an advance copy of your book. That's not to say I won't grab the Kindle version (it WILL be on Kindle, right?) at some point this year, and possibly even read it. And review it. I try to spread my reading more evenly across the year since I'm supposed to be writing my own book.

I would be willing to do those 4 things during a 2 week period. 1)I start my day (after 20 minutes of meditation) with either facebook or gmail. 2) My seldom written and even less read blog is http://dawnandbill.blogspot.com/3)I write when it is required and I would see the 2 week deadline and free book as requirements. I love to write, I just find other things to do with my time which needs to change. AND my spiritual director would be thrilled with me for doing this! And if not one of the chosen, I may just do it on my own. I know I'll buy the book – we bought 3 after you interviewed Tess just to see what you're about. My husband even reads them – and he isn't a reader, so thanks!

1. I check facebook first, always. It's an addictive and important communicative tool in my life.2. I have two blogs. The random writings about my life are at: timetravelingcyndi.wordpress.comMy photography is at maeflowerphotos.wordpress.com3. I definitely would LOVE to read and review your book. And I read really fast, so I could probably read and review it in two days, so the two-week limit isn't a problem. And you can trust that it would be well written, because I'm an English major. (Or rather, I used to be.) But, you might not want to float me a free copy of your book, because approximately six people read my blog regularly.

First up: Twitter. I check it from my Blackberry before I ever get out of bed. I tell myself that it helps me wake up, but really I just like to lie in bed for an extra 10-75 minutes every day.My awesome blog: http://www.onwardhoe.com Why? Because I'm working three jobs and still can't afford to buy the book. Plus I do a lot of sitting around at one of the jobs, and I like to spend that time reading. And also, I want to review it on my blog because I have a lot of readers who are not sure where they stand on the issues of faith, religion and Jesus, and I think they would be intrigued. And then I could let them borrow my copy.

i usually check my bloglines reader first — which is nice when i'm on early morning shift with my daughter, because i can read, but can't type, while holding her. [i may be giving away that i'm a new father by not being able to type and hold a baby at the same time.]my blog: http://jamesbrett.wordpress.comi live in tanzania, east africa, and don't get to read new books often. and when i do, it costs me an arm and a leg to get them here — which means i've read exactly two, and am now done. if only i could go back in time…

1. What is the first website or blog you check each day?Google Reader. Everydayreading.blogspot.com is probably the blog update I look for most often, closely followed by Telling Secrets, Reflectionary, Slactivist (for the dissection of the Left Behind books), Jesus Needs New PR, Feministing, and a lot of other blogs (including Mama:Monk, by the way).2. If you have one, what is the URL of your personal blog?http://eatsleepreadlove.wordpress.com3. Why do you or do you not want an advance copy of O Me of Little Faith?It sounds like an awesome book, the cover is fantastic, I love your writing, and I can't wait to see if your doubt resembles mine.

1. My first websites are always BBC news, Google Reader, and Radio free Europe. Then I check reduser.net, a camera forum. All of these add up to someone making a movie about Russian politics.2. My personal blog is the one for my film, http://www.thesheolexpress.com.3. I want a free book because I'm living week-to-week, with no money for the luxury of books, and I like to read. Your writing has and continues to touch me, and so I would love to read it.
