Why You Should Order the Book Today
OK, OK, So you're probably tired of hearing about this book. Believe me, I'm tired of thinking about this book. But, I really want all of my blog readers and friends to be able to get their hands on one of the first 100 copies before they are gone.
Right now, 45 of the 100 are spoken for. And we are going to a national convention where we will attempt to sell them. So, my guess is that by the time next week is over, they will be gone.
That isn't to say that we aren't going to order more, because we are, but if you want to say you were part of the first printing, then you need to act now.
The plan Bart came up with is brilliant. We are heading to Ohio on Tuesday and we will be arriving in Columbus on Wednesday. The books will be in Columbus by then and we are taking the envelops, already addressed, for those who have purchased the books, so that we can mail them from Ohio. That way we don't have to carry those 45 back with us. It's our hope that we will be able to sell most of the rest at NACAC and I suppose there is a slight possibility that we will sell them all.
When we get home we have to order an ISBN number for the next printing which can take up to 10-15 days. Then we have to place yet another order and that will take another week or two. So basically, if you don't order now, you may not see your copy of the book for another month or so.
Now I am really tired of looking at the book, but the people who have read it think it is amazing -- especially for those who either have gone through the process of fostering or adopting kids, or those who are planning to.
As you know, you can view a movie about the book here, and from there order your copy.
Don't miss out. It's a book that not only tells our story but also tells you what we learned along the way. We coulda called it "How to get 12 kids in 12 years" but I'm not sure most people want to do that.
And not to exploit my children for the purpose of making hard cold cash or anything, but don't you wanna know how to get a kid like #12 shown above?
