Understanding Cemetery Symbols – book release this summer!

After a lifetime of exploring historic graveyards and several years of earnest research, I’m finally releasing my cemetery symbols book. Hooray!

The book is called Understanding Cemetery Symbols: A Field Guide for Historic Graveyards. As you can see from the image below, it has two companion workbooks to go along with it. I don’t have the exact release date, but I’m aiming for mid-August. I am so excited!

I could use some help!

You know the saying “it takes a village to raise a child”? It’s the same with releasing a book! Despite my stubborn, independent streak, getting the word out about a book is not something I can do alone. So I’m asking for help. In return, not  only will you have my undying gratitude, but hopefully you will have FUN!

Want to join my Launch Team?

So, would you like be part of my book launch team? A book launch team is a group of readers who help an author get the word out. So, for instance, as a Launch Team member, I could tag you on Facebook when I mention the books. You could also help out by sharing my posts and telling friends about these books, etc…

Even though this is my fourth book, this is my first official Launch Team, so I will be learning as I go. But the main goals are simply to help spread the word about my book Understanding Cemetery Symbols and have FUN!

Being a Launch Team member does not need to be time-consuming, either. Everything I request of you folks is simply that: a request. If I have a list of 10 requests and you only do one thing off that list, you are still helping me out!

Launch Team members get FREE books – just saying!

Plus, in addition to my undying gratitude, Launch Team members will be mentioned in the book’s ‘Acknowledgments,’ get copies of the books in advance, as well as other goodies along the way. (I’ve got some surprises up my sleeve!)

If this sounds fun to you, leave a comment below and I’ll get back to you in a day or two about this whole Launch Team thing! And if you’d like to help me out right now, then please share this post on social media. Remember to tag me @TuiSnider so I’ll see it. Thanks again! :D

  10. Lydia J Lydia J

    Hello Tui! Saw you speak and enjoyed the presentation. Always been fascinated with cemeteries and how different cultures honor their deceased. Really looking forward to the new book. Glad to help with a new book launch team.

    • Oh, that’s wonderful! Thank you, Lydia! Did you see me at TCU, Stephenville, Watauga or someplace else? I’ll email you the Launch Team info here in a minute or two. Thanks again. :D

  11. This is a great idea! I’ll be on your launch team and help out. Also, I should steal this idea for my next book launch. It feels a little less committing than street teams, but still just as helpful.

    • Hooray! So glad to have you onboard, Patty! Yeah, I didn’t want to do a full-on street team, ‘cuz I know everyone’s busy. I just want people to do as much (or as little) as they feel like and not feel guilty about it. I really want it to be fun! :)

  12. Tui, as noted on Twitter, I’m on board! I’ve never been part of a launch team before, but I’m looking forward to it. I’ll be doing extensive traveling with my B-17 over the next month, which will limit my time, but I’ll have my laptop with me for access when I’m not working.

    This should be FUN!
