Selfie on launch day, welcoming our newest (paperback) addition to the family!
Dear friends, a book launch week for an author is an out-of-body kind of experience, and all of you have made it so, so special. A few highlights:
- Introverted Mom reached #1 on Amazon in both the Christian Family and Popular Psychology categories!
- It became a bestseller on Barnes and Noble online, too!
- Amazon sold out of copies (but it’s back in stock now!)
- I can also read it TO you via the audio version, which turned out so great.
- I LOVED going live and doing readings from the book on both Instagram and Facebook during launch day. (You can still watch if you missed them!)
But BY FAR, the biggest highlight has been receiving some of your comments, like:
- “I stepped away from my reading proud of the way I’m wired.”
- “I have never felt as understood in my life as I did while reading this book.”
- “This book is the literary equivalent of a chocolate bar…” (YES!!!)
- “I am feeling at peace with myself for the first time EVER.” (Wow.)
I have done the ugly cry so many times hearing these words, all of them answers to my prayers for the book and you readers. Thank you!!
If you still need to get your copy, remember if you order before the end of Sunday you’ll receive the five “introverted mom mantra” prints as a special gift – Happy Mother’s Day!!!
