Well, today is the big day. My second trade book, The In-Between, released this morning, and I couldn't be more excited.
This is a book about a topic I've been struggling with for years: How do you learn to live in the moment? What I learned in the process of trying to answer that question changed my life — and I hope it does the same for you.
Everyone is waiting for something; each person is in between where they are and want to be. And if we don't learn how to be content with where we are, how will we ever be satisfied?
Turns out, life is just a series of moments. And what we choose to do with those moments is how we spend our lives. I wrote this book to explore what would happen if we stopped wasting our waiting and finally embraced the “little” in-between times.
What this book teaches & why you should get it now
The In-Between will help you:
- Find meaning in the “boring” times. We all have experiences that feel mundane or rote, but in fact these are the most significant experiences of our lives… if we choose to see them that way.
- Live more in the moment. When we're constantly waiting for the next big thing, we miss the importance of what's right in front of us.
- Experience the joy that comes with embracing inconveniences. We all encounter setbacks and delays in life that can frustrate us, but what if these were the very tools to help us grow?
If you're ready to embrace the wait, you can order a copy from your favorite online or local bookstore (see a list here).
Now, let's get real for a second…
I know it's a big deal to ask you buy a book the week it comes out. We tend to take our time with books and wait to hear if they're any good before buying a copy. I get that.
But if you're reading this, then we have a relationship. Maybe you've been reading this blog for years, or maybe a friend just recommended it to you.
Either way, I'm asking you to take a chance. To trust that a $10 book will be worth your time. (To be fair, the book already has over 40 4- and 5-star reviews, so it's not that much of a risk.)
Launch week is a big deal for an author and can sometimes make or break a book, depending on how much attention it gets. If this topic sounds appealing to you, all I'm asking is for you to pick up a copy over the next week and tell me what you think.
If you hate the book, send me an email and I'll buy it back from you for whatever you paid. Seriously.
To further sweeten the deal (because I'm all about rewarding my audience), I'm offering six tiers of rewards for anyone who orders the book in the next 10 days.
And now for the rewards…
