Books in the Mail!

I sent off just about all of my orders today. I noticed when I got home that there were five bubble mailers I had overlooked (in a small box) and not taken into the post office to mail. So those will be sent in the morning. I was so frustrated with myself.

I don't know exactly how many books I've sold in the last two days because I haven't counted. But in addition to all the orders from the website, I have sold books to almost everyone I've talked to. My Bible Study friends all bought the book. I went to lunch with another bunch of friends yesterday and sold six books. I went to the dentist and sold a book. I even sold a book in the post office as I was lugging all of my boxes in and explaining why I was mailing so many packages at the same time.

Shipping and keeping meticulous records are more challenging for me than writing OR selling the book.

I have tomorrow's shipments ready to go in the morning. I'm planning to come to White House with books next Thursday. So if you want one and would like it hand delivered instead of paying shipping costs, just email me and we'll work out the details. I keep a box of books in the back of my car now at all times just in case someone asks for one.

I'm looking forward to hearing feedback from readers. Remember that you can also leave comments on my guestbook at BREAKING THE CHAINS

Does this mean my copy is on its way?? I am anxiously awaiting its arrival! Thank you, Shari, for all the hard work you have poured into this project. I love you!!

Yes! Yours was the first package I put postage on! : )

I can't wait for you to read it. You're right; I have poured myself into this all year. It feels good to be at this point. The last couple of days it has been overwhelming. I have sat for hours, writing in books and getting them ready to ship. You should have seen me at the post office. I carried boxes and boxes of bubble mailers in and sat them on counters. I even sold a copy to another customer because I was so conspicuous that I was asked why I was sending so much mail all at once.

I'm finally all caught up and today's shipment is ready to go. I am encouraged by how many books I have already sold, the responses of readers so far, and the number of hits on my website. Oh, by the way, after you have read the book, please leave a comment on the guestbook. That would be so helpful for people going to the site who don't know me!
