Good morning! I hope you don’t mind a little self-promotion. This is a copy of a text I sent my kids on Monday:
Today I’m making the scariest leap of my life. I am pushing “launch” on the campaign to sell my book. After so many years of blood, sweat, and tears, I am about to put my work out there, to put myself out there. And I’m asking for help, which is also really scary. But here’s what I keep coming back to when my heart starts pounding out of my chest and it feels too big, too hard: I may fall down, I may not reach my goal, but at the end of it all, I will be really proud of myself. Because I will know that I tried.
On Monday (4/16), I launched a campaign on publishizer.com to pre-sell my new novel, The Truth is a Theory.
My goal is to pitch publishers, and Publishizer (and YOU) can help me do that. I have 30 days to pre-sell as many books that I can. If I reach 250 pre-sales, Publishizer starts pitching publishers on my behalf. At 250, they pitch Independent Publishers, and at 500 pre-sales, they start pitching the bigger houses. (*UPDATE: as of Weds 4/18, we are at 282 pre-sales!)
So every single book counts! I am writing to ask for your support. Please consider buying one, or more than one! You will get a great read and you will be giving me an incredible boost.
Here is the one-line “elevator pitch” about the book: The Truth is a Theory is the story of the assumptions we make about important people in our lives, and how these fatally flawed “truths” play out for four women friends.
You can go to either my website or my publishizer page to learn more and place an order:
And, if you can, please share this—or my facebook or my instagram— with your friends and family.
Thank you so much!
