Turns out I only needed permission to mope. I didn’t actually need to mope. Go figure.
I woke up this morning with that nagging feeling that something was wrong. Then I went back to bed while the girls did a Snow Day Dance. Got up at 9:00, spent some sweet time with Jesus while my kids did who knows what, then sat down at my computer.
Oh, the tears.
As soon as I started reading your comments, a wave of peace washed over my whole sad self, and it hasn’t left. Bless your sweet, sweet hearts. I’m sorry it took such a bummer deal for me to realize how good I have it. Man.
So, let’s get down to business.
1100 copies of Changing Your World One Diaper at a Time are on their way to my house from Oregon. I have 30 days to pay the publisher for them. You might think I’d be concerned about this. I am not.
I do want to give you, my faithful, darling friends, a one-time opportunity to buy some copies of the book at a discount. All proceeds will go toward paying The Man at the publishing house. After that, I’ll just sell them for $12 until they’re gone.
See, 1100 books is not that many. Not really. A couple years ago, I watched, jaw agape, as the poor UPS man unloaded 52 (FIFTY-TWO) boxes of Blushing Bride into my garage. Since Diapers is thinner than Blushing (and there are 1100, not 2300), I’m only expecting a small, teensy-tiny load of 20 boxes.
I’m kind of excited that you get to purchase some books for cheap (if you want), and I get to make a profit I wasn’t expecting. The only one losing out is the publisher (which I only feel the slightest smidge guilty about).
Speaking of diapers (weren’t we?), Happy 1-Week Birthday to my beautiful niece, Mia!
So, until Friday. here’s my offer (these all include shipping costs):
1 Diapers book = $7
2 Diapers books = $12 ($6 per book)
4 Diapers books = $20 ($5 per book)
5 Diapers books = $22 ($4.40 per book)
21 Diapers books = $70 ($3.33 per book)
If you don’t need them shipped, I’ll deduct the amount it would cost to ship them.
If you still want Blushing books,
4 Blushing books = $10 ($2.50 per book)
17 Blushing books = $30 ($1.76 per book)
Want a combo?
2 Blushing + 2 Diapers = $15 ($3.75 per book)
9 Blushing + 10 Diapers = $50 ($2.63 per book)
All you need to do is click here sometime before Friday at midnight and enter whichever amount you want (they’re all different prices, so I’ll know which special you’d like).
If you’d rather write a check, shoot me an e-mail, and we’ll get that worked out.
If you’d like some books but won’t have $ by Friday, let me know, and I can hold them for you. I’m all about the grace period. The GP and I have grown tight over the past year.
Seriously, friends. Your words touched my heart in a way I can’t articulate. God used you to affirm His love for me, His calling on my life and His promise that He wants the very best for me (even if it’s much, much different than what I envisioned). I love you guys, and I don’t deserve such wonderful friends.
The pity party’s over early. I’m so excited about what’s next.
