Hey Hey Hey Troublemakers!
I don’t normally show up in your inbox on a Sunday, but I am in the thick of book launch season and could use your support. In less than 4 weeks, my young readers edition of I’m Still Here releases into the world. And while I am both THRILLED and filled with excitement about what this book will do, I also need to ask you to do one thing for me.
It might be tempting to look at my social media following and think that support is overwhelming and rolling right in. But friends, while there is so much I’m grateful for, there is still so much I’m up against - algorithms that show my posts to a small percentage of my followers - to start. Now I’ve decided long ago that numbers will not be defining success for me, ok? But just like I believed in my little green book (the original I’m Still Here), I believe in my little ombre book too. And I want her message to spread.
That’s where you come in. I would love for you to be part of my book launch team. And today I’m so excited to announce an exclusive perk just for book launch team members:
If you sign up, you’ll get 3 invites to hear exclusive conversations with me and one of these incredible women. I'm already a fan of each of them and can’t wait for these convos (and yes, I’m definitely claiming to be an official member of the Baby-Sitters Club) 💜
This book is not just for kids; this book is for anyone who was a fan of I’m Still Here (there are so many new stories that I couldn’t include in the first book that I’m so delighted to share here), for anyone who wants to tend to their childhood or connect deeper with the young people in their life. I heeded the words of Toni Morrison when I wrote, “If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” I needed this book in 6th grade. But I also need it today. And without being too bossy, my hunch is you need it too!
To join the team, you need to preorder the young readers book and sign up. In return you’ll receive freebies, early copies of book chapters and now invites to these exclusive conversations.
Launch team sign ups will only be available thru Tuesday so let’s launch this thing! Sign up here!
I love that you’ve written a new book . I have pre- ordered two! Let’s support what you want more of, Women telling their stories.
