Hi all!

Thanks again for your willingness to help me spread the word about Escape to Play!

There is no pressure to post everything. If you can retweet with a comment, share on Facebook or Instagram that would be fabulous as I post about the book! 

If you are able to do more, that is wonderful! I have created some ideas below and the date to post. I want to make sure that there isn't too much activity going to the page before the launch date so when February 9th happens, they can order right then.

Again, if you want to review the book with me on Zoom, before Feb 9th (or after, too), I will be available at your convenience. Please email me! (<--- click to email)

Being part of the "Launch Team" just means you help get the word out as you are able. I am so grateful for any help, especially on February 9th (LAUNCH DAY!) The more orders on day 1 the better for visibility on Kickstarter! Thank you all so much for the love and support!

Becky Gehrisch
