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?
Hello, my friends!
Thursday was an excellent day for Eudaimonia, I found out that it made it into the Launchpad Manuscript Competiton TOP 10!
When I submitted it back in July I could have only dreamed it would make it this far. MIND BLOWN. Totally amazing!
But, the Launchpad contest is completely up to the judges. We don’t have much control over what they decide. You know what we DO have control over? This here Inkshares Pre-Order Contest. This is won by you and me, asking our people nicely to pre-order Eudaimonia.
We are sitting in 3rd place on the Inkshares Leaderboard and October 9th is fast approaching. If you haven’t pre-ordered, would you please consider doing so? If you have pre-ordered, would you please share this link with a couple of your people?
We are so close!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Just found out today, Eudaimonia made it into the Top 25!

Whoa. All I can say is “whoa”.
This has been a crazy week. I have been in first, second, and third place in this pre-order contest, in just one week!
With over 70 days left in this contest, I am very glad I don’t have a heart condition. I wouldn’t make it.
Thank you so much to my friends who pre-ordered this week! Your pre-orders helped me to remain in second place at the end of this week. And since we all remember that the top 3 will get their book published, we know that that 2nd place is a BIG deal. (We could get a book published!)
Also, a special shout out to all my folks who have shared, tweeted, and forwarded the link. Who are you people? And how did I get so lucky?
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Our first week of pre-orders is coming to a close, and man, what a week!
We are over 20% of the way to our first pre-order milestone of 250 and we still have about 84 days to go. Thank you very much for jumping right on the pre-order band wagon. I can’t tell you how much it means to me. It is about as close as I ever felt to being a celebrity. So, I’m going to take that momentum and continue to work really hard on my end to shamelessly self-promote. As for you, I’d like for you to have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
Good morning friends!
If y’all are going to continue to be awesome, I will be forced to gush. That is just how it going to have to be.
After only 2 days (TWO DAYS?!) we are at 17% of our light publishing goal of 250. That is crazy good! And that is all you. I can’t pre-order this thing. You are the reason we are in first place after only two days.
Sure, I wrote it but you guys are the ones that are going to bring it to life! My family, friends, co-workers, former co-workers, school pals, and friends of friends of friends. We are trying to (and going to at the rate you guys work) get a book published. Uh, that is pretty freaking cool.
For that, I am immensely excited and grateful.
I also had one more bit of good news! I got the email yesterday that Eudaimonia made it to the top 50 in the Launch Pad Manuscript Competition. (Some of you saw my dancing video on Facebook and Instagram, so much dancing is going on here!)
I hope you have an incredible day, I know I will.
We had an excellent first day of pre-orders! Triple thank yous are in order for all of you who helped kick off day one!
I really appreciated all of the text messages, direct messages, shares, follows and shout outs.
We hit 10% of the first goal of 250 pre-orders.
Thanks for a great first day!
