Hello out there to everyone! I hope you are all staying cool while this summer heats up. We hit 100 degrees for the first time in a long time here in Maryland last week, but, thankfully, things seem to be cooling off a bit now.
Things are definitely heating up with our anthology, From the Heart: A Collection of Stories and Poems from the Front Lines of Parenting. Our three month sales drive began on July 1st and it is going strong. Our goal to sell 10,000 copies of this book in 90 days is becoming more and more real by the day!
For those of you who are not familiar with our project, I would like to take a moment to introduce it to you. We have compiled works from dozens of authors, mostly parents, to create a fantastic anthology full of funny, poignant, and sometimes tearjerking notes from the front lines of parenthood. Proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to Children’s Hospitals and juvenile disease research foundations around the country.
It is our goal to sell 10,000 copies of this book in 90 days, but we can’t do it alone! There are a number of ways you can help us get the word out. First, sign up for our Blog Tour and post a Q&A style piece on From the Heart. It won’t take you much time, but the benefit to our cause would be enormous. Second, you can sign up for our daily marketing minute and help in our unique grassroots effort to get this book out there. Participate in the first two options by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Last, you can buy a copy! Use the button on the right side navigation of our website to visit the purchase page. The book makes a great gift!
We look forward to updating you regularly on sales and marketing information regarding the book. Check out our press page to find out where we are being featured next!
