Let’s Flash Mob Our Message of Hope

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 1.46.44 PM

I want to FLASH MOB the internet with this message of HOPE in the hard.

Will you join me?

I’ve started a Thunderclap Campaign. 

A WHAT?!

I know. It’s sorta like this… I can clap my hands, and the people around me will hear it. But a THUNDERclap… wow, that spreads far and wide.

And that’s what I’d like to do with the book.

Here’s what happens.

I need 100 people to let me post, through Thunderclap, a message about the book… all at once. I’m essentially borrowing your audience, ONE time, in one moment.

We’re flash mobbing the internet on National Adoption Day (Nov 21)

But, Thunderclap won’t post if I don’t have 100 people willing. But think about it… If I have 1,000 friends on Facebook… I can reach those 1,000. But if ONE HUNDRED of us have 1,000 friends… then we’ve reached 100,000 people! HELLO!

So please consider joining my campaign!

You can check out my page (and exactly what will be tweeted or posted) right HERE.

I have had an unbelievable couple of days!!!

90 days ago I didn’t even have a book idea… but bravely, I stepped into Self Publishing School and decided to try something a little different.

The writing is easy. And I live the story, so I didn’t have to make anything up.

But the publishing! The marketing! This… this is scary.

Yet I have heard you. The many reviews and comments about how this book is changing your life. How it’s changing the way you see your family or your friends’ family… or even your own mental health.

One person said:

I’ve adopted four children and fostered many more. I consider myself a “veteran” and yet I still learned a lot from this beautifully written, heart wrenching, inspiring book. Whether you are curious about adopting from foster care or a mom in the trenches, this book is an invaluable resource.

Reclaiming Hope made me feel understood and encouraged. The author gave voice to things I’ve felt but didn’t have the courage to admit for fear of judgment. She gets it! This book whispered into my heart “Be gentle with yourself, Mom.” I am better for having read it.

Wow you guys!!!

So now my mission has grown. I want the message of hope in Reclaiming Hope: Overcoming the Challenges of Parenting Foster and Adopted Children to go beyond me. Beyond my amazing circle.

Will you join me??? THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

Happy National Orphan Day! {And Reclaiming Hope Book Launch}

Reclaiming_Hope__Kindle_Cover Well friends, today is the day I’ve been waiting on for soooooo long.

Okay, for 88 days.

Today is the day my newest baby shakes out its wings and flies into the world.

Ironically enough, I didn’t plan to launch my new book, “Reclaiming Hope: Overcoming the Challenges of Parenting Foster and Adopted Children” on National Orphan Day.

Because of lots of formatting issues, my book was delayed a week. I realized the date I’d set was rather arbitrary but I’d set up promos around it and the thought of changing it was stressful.

But the eve of my launch last week, still no formatted book.

SO I changed it to THIS Sunday. To today.

And miraculously, the promos I’d set up could change with me.

Only then did I realize what this Sunday, what today is.

What this launch day is.

It’s National Orphan Day.

And my book is about orphans and social orphans.

And Reclaiming HOPE in the midst of the challenges of raising orphans.

God knew the day this book needed to enter the world.

And I’m grateful.

I’m learning to hold plans loosely, because even though change may come through difficult situations, it might just end up EVEN BETTER in the end.

BECAUSE TODAY IS THE DAY!

Reclaiming Hope: Overcoming the Challenges of Parenting Foster and Adopted Children is available TODAY. 

And for TWO days.. it’s FREE.

Why?

Because I want everyone who needs this book to get it. Get it here FREE on November 8th and November 9th.

Screen Shot 2015-11-07 at 10.55.25 PMAND GET THIS… in its first 24 hours, Reclaiming Hope was:

NUMBER 1 in Hot New Releases,

Number 1 in the Top 100 Paid,

and NUMBER 1 in Family Health.

And I wasn’t even selling it yet.
