Thanks, Matt. Your book is in the mail today.
I wanted to send you a few more details on the book review and giveaway.
If you need some inspiration, here are some basic questions to get you started on your review:
- What did you like about Managing God’s Money and why?
- What did you learn?
- What was most impactful to you?
- How do you think the book would be helpful to your readers?
We would like to ask that you post your review on your blog within one month after receiving the book in the mail. Please send me an email as soon as you know when your blog post will be up. If I haven’t heard from you within a month after sending the book, I will follow up to see when you plan to post the review.
To comply with new regulations introduced by the Federal Trade Commission, please include this information at the bottom of your review: Eternal Perspective Ministries provided me with a complimentary copy of this book to review.
I’ve attached an image of the book to include with your post, along with this paragraph:
Managing God’s Money is available from your local Christian bookstore and from online retailers, as well as from Eternal Perspective Ministries (www.epm.org), a nonprofit ministry founded by author Randy Alcorn.
I’ve also attached a Q&A with Randy on the book. You are welcome to include any or all of it with your post if you like.
You may have your own way of conducting a giveaway on your blog, and that is fine. But here is some sample wording as a guideline:
Eternal Perspective Ministries is also giving away copies of Managing God’s Money to three readers! To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post by (date one week after the post goes up). Please only enter once and leave a valid email address and do not enter for family and friends. The winners will be randomly selected on (date the day after the giveaway closes) and notified by the email left in the comments. Winners must respond within 48 hours of notification or we will select another winner.
EPM would ask that you handle the details of randomly selecting and contacting the winners by email for their mailing addresses. For giveaways on our own site, I use a random number generator (www.random.org/integers/) to generate three random numbers and select the winners. Once you’ve contacted the winners and have their mailing addresses, you can then pass on the names and addresses to me, and we will ship the books out.
Finally, we would ask that you also post your review on Christianbook.com and Amazon. With your review, include the line: Eternal Perspective Ministries provided me with a complimentary copy of this book to review. We will also be posting your review on our website, www.epm.org.
Please do let me know if you have any questions at all. Thank you again for your partnership!
