Raising Resilient Sons: A Boy Mom’s Guide to Building a Strong, Confident, and Emotionally Intelligent Family comes out December 8th, but I would be so grateful if you would take the time to preorder it now. That’s because in today’s publishing landscape, preorders are more important than ever.
When you preorder a book, it lets retailers know readers are interested, which means they order copies for release day. Your preorder lets publishers know how many copies to print, and greatly impacts buzz, marketing, and media coverage. If you’re thinking about buying the book, preordering it now would be so helpful.
To thank you for taking the time to purchase the book ahead of time, I’ve worked with my publisher to offer everyone who preorders the book (in any format) this fantastic preorder bonus absolutely free to you.
On December 14, 2020, we’ll celebrate the book release — and your preorder — with a live virtual event: Raising Resilient Families. I’ll take the virtual stage to talk with you live at 7:30 p.m. Eastern all about strengthening emotional intelligence and fostering resiliency in your home, with plenty of time for your questions to be answered personally at the end… there might even be a few prizes along the way!
Oh! Don’t worry if you can’t make it to the event live if you have a prior engagement or the time zones don’t line up. As my thank you for preordering the book, you’ll get access to the replay as soon as it finishes processing. You can watch whenever you need a boost of parenting confidence!
All you need to do is head to your favorite online (or in-person) bookseller and preorder the book, then come back here to enter in your order confirmation number, and you’ll get an email with instructions to sign up for the live event. I can’t wait to “see” you there!
