A Rough Draft Life Party Packages

Need a live party for your book launch, backlist promotion, or virtual ministry celebration? We have a fun, easy solution for you!

How it works: The A Rough Draft Life Team will work with you to plan a party that highlights your work. The party will be facilitated via Zoom or other streaming connection service and fed live to Facebook. (Unless other broadcast arrangements are made.)

Why it’s amazing: You only have to do the fun stuff. We’ll discuss ideas with you for activities and questions, then do all the preparation work for you. Once you’ve filled out the pre-party planning guide, you don’t have to do anything other than show up for the tech test and the party itself.

What you’ll get: We have a variety of packages available below. Choose the one that fits your needs and budget! Don’t see what you’re looking for? Contact us. We’ll be happy to put together a custom quote for you.

What you’ll provide:
– Any links you’ll want shared with your viewers, including buy links or special mentions.
– We’ll need pictures of you and the item/book you are highlighting.
– You’ll also need “villagers”. Because there is a delay when feeding a Zoom meeting to Facebook, you will not be able to directly interact with viewers. We provide a background support person that posts links, feeds the interviewer questions from the comments, and facilitates the communication between you and the viewers. It is best if you have people who can chat, answer simple questions, and encourage interaction. You can hire our villagers as an add on to any package.
– If you want a prize at your party, you’ll need to provide that. You can add a prize winner selection to any package.

I’ve been doing my own parties for years and this was by far the easiest and least stressful party I’ve ever done.

Kristi Ann Hunter (Organizer and Author)

When Lindsey and Kristy offered to help me with my recent Facebook launch party, I was relieved to have someone there with me to make sure I didn’t bore my readers! They definitely weren’t bored, but even more than that, Lindsey asked insightful questions that made for fun conversation, and she sprinkled in the promotional bits–reminders to buy my book and places where they could do so–that I, as the author, wasn’t as comfortable saying. In short, they made the process fun and easy and took much of the pressure off me! I heartily recommend them for any kind of online launch or Q&A.
