7 more days. Home stretch, friends!
Eudaimonia is still in 3rd place! But I have a feeling there will be a flutter of last minute pre-orders this week for everyone. Nothing is for certain as of right now.
So, if you have not pre-ordered yet, would you? And for those of you who have, would you mind, one last time, sharing this with your friends?
This has been one of the most rewarding things I have done in a long time. I can’t tell you how flattering it is to tell someone about this contest and get responses like “You bet!” “I’m in!” or (my personal favorite) “Done.” How quickly everyone jumped on board to support this, to support me, has just been so encouraging and motivating.
Before I was, “Eh, if I make it, cool.” Now, I’m more like, “Shoot, I do not want to let my mom or Sara down!”
It has also been so nice to chat up folks I haven’t seen in a while. I mean, we are social media friends, I get to see all the pictures of their kids growing up, the antics of their pets, and hilarious memes. Yard roosters, pictures of triathlons, and envy-worthy vacations. Oh, and the memes and GIFs and Bitmojis! But, a back and forth message with a former co-worker? Friends from high school saying they are proud of me? My brother calling me to ask “how are things?”.
The best. So thank you.
Thank you for all your shares, tweets, private messages, and emails on my behalf. (“Upon pain of death for noncompliance,” said my most aggressive supporter while another mailed me a Nobel Prize medallion he found somewhere on the internet.) The support has been unbelievable.
So, thank you, again.
But onto the matter at hand, to getting this book published, right?
