The moment has come to really accept the reality that I have written a book.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret, this was not anywhere in my plans over a year ago.
The thought of writing a book was a enough to send me sprinting (ok more like a semi-fast run if you ask my boys and husband) to the best hiding space I could find.
In September of 2017 a traditional book publisher contacted me asking me if I would be interested in writing a book. My initial reaction in my head was heck no! There is a reason why I podcast, so I don’t have to do much writing (although I’m noticing I’m writing this blog post now 😂).
After the fear simmered down, I realized what an honor it was and dived in feet first vs head first (because I honestly didn’t know what I was doing). In going through the process I transitioned from traditional publishing into self-publishing, but I can’t express enough how thankful I am to this traditional publisher for putting me on this path.
Little by little and with some tears and lots of coffee and patience Her Money Matters: The Missing Truths From Traditional Money Advice evolved.
I thought the process of writing was hard work, but the editing? That was painful but they were definitely good growing pains. I am fortunate to have found a fantastic editor, one who literally has gotten in my head so much that each time I write anything even if it is a text I am thinking through it more carefully before I hit send.
Now that the manuscript and the book cover are finalized, next is the interior formatting before it is submitted to Amazon and everywhere else it needs to go.
The work does not stop there though ….I still need to get this book into the hands of as many women as possible and I can’t do it alone. I need your help!
As awesome as it would be to hit publish and everyone would be clicking the purchase button on Amazon, we both know it doesn’t work this way. This is why I am forming the Her Money Matters Book Launch Team (HMM Book Launch Team).
The whole purpose of the launch team is to maximize our efforts of sharing the book with as many people as possible.
HMM Book Launch Team Perks:
Perk Número 1: Receive a free electronic copy of the book prior to the publication date.
Perk Número 2: Exclusive access to me and the fabulous team members in a Private Facebook Group.
Perk Número 3: A special virtual pre-launch party.
Perk Número 4: A special THANK YOU on my blog and the Her Money Matters podcast along with a link to your blog.
What I Am Asking of You:
Ask #1: Read and review the book online on Amazon (this piece is so very important!)
Ask #2: Help spread the word about the book in any way you can during the week of February 13th (when the book is released). I will make it easy for you and provide you what you need.
Ask #3: Share your ideas, help brainstorm additional ways so we can make the most impact we can in getting the word out about the book
That is it!!
Submit Your Application:
Why an application? The main purpose is to get to know you better as well as make sure that the launch team does not get bigger than what we can realistically handle.
You have to hurry though, we are only taking applications
