Thank you for your friendship, prayers and support as the word about Safe House gains traction.
I got my first copies at the door last week. What a great feeling to have it in hand! The publisher did a fantastic job. I cannot wait for you to see it!
If you already pre-ordered the book, thank you!
If you haven’t, don’t forget that the offer for the FREE small group / parent study expires on release day! Be sure to pre-order now by clicking here. We’re ecstatic about the quality of this study and cannot wait to see parents gaining new tools in a shame-free and imperfect way!
With the book releasing next week, we want to spread the word about the pre-release offer to as many parents as possible. We would so appreciate your help!
In fact, we’re going to randomly choose three people this week who use #SafeHouseBook or #SafeHouseFamily to post about the offer and give away signed copies. The more you post the better chance to win! We’ll be selecting those winners Friday, October 16th at 9pm EST.
How Can You Help?
1. Reviews: Post a Review on Amazon: On October 20th, Amazon will open the review feature on the book's page and readers will be able to post reviews. I’d love to have your review!
2. Blog: Have a blog? We'd love for you to write about the book on your blog. If you want to give away a copy to one of your readers, the publisher is happy to give you a reader copy here.
3. Word of Mouth: What's one of the most influential things when deciding what book to read? A recommendation from a friend, right?
