It seemed like this day would never arrive, but it’s finally here! What I’ve been hinting at for…well, YEARS…has come to fruition. I wrote a book, and it’s, gulp, ready for the world!
About the Book
(including how to snag it for the lowest price possible + how to claim over $200 worth of bonuses)
The official release date of More Than Just Making It: Hope for the Heart of the Financially Frustrated is September 5, but it’s available for pre-order NOW (cue the Hallelujah music!). Anyone who pre-orders will get 10 AMAZING bonuses!
In More Than Just Making It, you’ll read my family’s story of walking through a period of extreme trial surrounding a struggling marriage and a near-empty bank account.
And, through my story, I will arm YOU, dear readers, with hope, encouragement, and practical advice, so you, too, can go from just barely surviving to “more than just making it.”
Because you see, friend, we all have a story to tell.
My story isn’t unique in that we’re not the only family who has ever struggled.
But I truly believe that by sharing our stories, by being authentic and transparent and–even a bit vulnerable–we can start a movement of hope among those who feel alone.
You, my friend, are not alone.
Why Pre-orders Matter
So, I had no idea how the whole book publishing process works from the author and publishing standpoint before this, but, y’all, pre-orders are hugely integral to the overall success of the book!
When you pre-order an author’s book, it makes a BIG impact on:
Retailer Stock. If retailers don’t have the book in stock, not as many books will sell. Ultimately, not as many people will be reached with this message of hope. I had no idea that pre-orders DRIVE retailers’ stock!
If there aren’t many pre-orders, the retailers will not stock up enough to drive the demand, which will result in the “out of stock” messages once the book launches.
Bestseller Potential. So, y’all, I think if this book makes any kind of list it will be a COMPLETE God-sized miracle because–hello!–I’ve been busy in newborn and infant la-la-land for the past 5 months (and spent the 9+ months before that pregnant), have been mothering three other children, and I just feel like there is no way on earth I can make this book sell on my own.
Here’s where the breath of relief comes in: God can do what I can’t. And He will do what He wants.
That said, pre-orders make a HUGE impact on whether or not a book will be eligible for a bestseller list (like the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and even Amazon). ALL pre-order sales count toward the first week of sales, and the first week of sales is what puts a book on one of these lists.
So while buying the book is awesome, pre-ordering can be the finger that pulls the trigger on these lists.
Once a book makes a bestseller list, the retailers will buy more, the media will take note, and, once again, it will spread this message of HOPE to more and more people who are struggling and in need of this book!
Best Price Guarantee: When you pre-order from Amazon, you will get the BEST price guaranteed between now and the launch! That means that when the price drops, you will get that price!
