A bit of good news I hope!!

The kindle version of my book is now just $.99! (it started at midnight, I am excessively uncomfortable with self-promotion!) Which is very exciting!! One of the reasons I opted to make a kindle version was to keep prices low. I think that we all have to pay attention to how and what we spend our money on, so I’m really excited that I get the chance to do this!

So, if you are interested in changing your life, following your dreams, understanding your relationships, sharing the difficulties of parenting, feeling inspired, motivated, encouraged, and understanding why you really are worthy of all of the wonderful things life has to offer and learning how to achieve them, it truly is a dollar extremely well spent. It’s a short read (it is 260 pages, but it feels so much faster, honestly!) It’s written in the same format as my blog. It’s like we sat down in my living room to have a conversation about everything worthwhile that I’ve learned in my years studying psychology and in my personal life. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry (except those of you who are manly enough to hold it in, but you’ll want to), It’s a chance worth taking, and it costs next to nothing. Give it to someone as a gift. You don’t need a kindle to read it. So please share it with everyone you know. It’s time and a tiny bit of money well spent.

Between Fear and Love – Kindle

    Congrats.I have a kindle (actually working from it right now).so I will definitely download this.looks good by the way:) by the way how did you make a kindle book?please describe the process…

    • Ha, wellll, I wrote the book in word, switched it over to html format, and followed the instructions on the kindle publishing website! πŸ™‚ I have no idea, I made a table of contents the way they told me to, and I made the page breaks the way they told me to, but I did it way back in December, so I can’t remember how it went, but they really did have step by step instructions for it on their site. If you have more questions let me know and I will try to remember or look at how I have it set up. πŸ™‚ And thank you for reblogging that post!!! I really appreciate that!

  7. I am touched by your story. All the best.

  8. your book looks like a powerful story!

  9. congratulation…. i will also get the ebook

  10. Thanks for liking my story post Lauren. Congratulations on the release of your book! I’m now following you x

  11. So excited for you! Congrats! I will be getting your ebook once I’m done here πŸ™‚ CONGRATS AGAIN!!

  12. Congratulations and thank you for visiting my blog. πŸ™‚

  13. wow! amazing news! I have no kindle or nook or any of those fancy things but I applaud the low price (I studied marketing and this is brilliant), so that more people will be agreeable to purchasing it and you get to share your healthy positive vibe. Hope you make bundles to save away for Jack’s future. xoxo

    • Thanks! (you don’t have to have one to read it, but as someone who usually prefers regular books, I know that probably doesn’t help much!) And I hope so, too! College is expensive! πŸ™‚

  14. Congratulations on everything!! Good luck with your book- I’ll be sure to read it sometime soon and to review it as well.

  15. I just purchased your book. I can’t wait to read it!

  16. I’m kind of hoping for a ‘Kindle’ for my birthday next week and I’ll be sure to buy it. If not I’ll try anyway. Best wishes for it’s success…Diane

    • Ha, thank you!! And good luck on the Kindle. I have one. I can’t decide if I like reading on it or not, but I do like that I can have all of my books in one place. πŸ™‚

  17. Hi, I wish you the best of luck with your book. As a fellow writer, I was curious if you were completely satisfied with your decision to go with the Kindle version, and if you thought it might limit you in the future? Or do you also plan on having hard copies available?

    • It’s available in paperback and for nook right now. The kindle was easy to do, and important in today’s world I think. But the whole task of publishing and getting your work in front of people has been the most difficult part.

  18. I hope this seriously gets your book the attention it deserves because it’s brilliant. I love your wrtiing style. As you know, i bought it a few weeks ago but because of my work, I’m still plugging through it LOL

    (I have two flights coming up this weekend though so I totally intend to finish it and review it on Amazon.)

    I honestly think 99c is way too long for it… I’m seriously thinking about ordering the paperback too… I had a Kindle and now I have a Tab and I like E-books, but there’s something to be said for having books on the shelf. Plus, it’s better for you financially. But if I do that, at some point in the next 50 years you’re gonna have to sign it LOL

    Congrats, good luck, keep writing and clear skies!

    • Whoops… mean to say 99c is way too LOW lol

    • Thanks, I appreciate all of the support! The price is fine, particularly if I can get it to a wider audience. I just think it’s important for people to know about, and that’s the most frustrating part in general. Because there has to be word of mouth, there has to be people talking about it and enjoying it for other people to be willing to read it. And that has to start before anything can really be done.

  19. How exciting! Congratulations!

  20. Fantastic journey you’re charting here. I’ve handbound and self-published several books, making more than a few dollars (but not enough to live on) and enjoyed the ride so far, gaining fans from around the world and sharing stories like yours in the process. You are blessed with a wonderful family and life, it appears. Your ebook price is enticing — I’ll have to download the Kindle app and read your wonderful writing! Stay motivated! Many of the most successful writers faced tens, hundreds, and in a few cases, thousands of rejections before hitting the big time, perfecting their craft in the meantime. The key is refining your unique voice and finding readers who are searching for exactly what you have to say. Niche writing, in other words, carving out your own [sub]genre.

  21. Lauren,
    I am new to your blog so I haven’t read far enough to know the answer to this: did you try to find an agent and have your book published before you decided to put it on kindle?
    Good luck,
    Laura

    • I had two agents, of the four I queried, say that they would represent me if I could build a platform first. I had one publishing company say that would take the book if I would accept 8%, but I said no. Because even with them I had to do all of the work myself, so if I am going to have to be the one to do it, then I might as well see how far I can get myself first.

  22. Thanks for liking my post! I completely agree that self-worth can change our lives. It’s a subject I’m very passionate about, and I plan on writing a book about it, too. I just bought yours for my Nook! πŸ™‚

    Hey there! Thank you for reading my very first post. ^_^ After having read through some of yours, I am excited to hear that you have accomplished one of your dreams. That in and of itself inspires me, as does your supportive community of bloggers. I want to you to know that I’m going to buy your book and read it as soon as I can.

    I wish you the very best of luck, success, and happiness.

    • Well thank you! I appreciate that! I am a big fan of smiles… and congratulations on successfully landing a stable job πŸ™‚ and for graduating in 4 years… I apparently have a plan to be in school forever!

      • smilescavenger

        Thanks. It took me 4.5 years actually – switched majors. Recently, I’ve come to really appreciate that it’s not about how fast you do things and that I should probably stop rushing through my entire life, always looking ahead. Seems obvious, right? Haha.

        Anyway, you seem to be doing a fine job and I can’t wait to get home and turn on my Kindle ’cause I just got your book! πŸ™‚

      • Awe, thank you! I appreciate that so much! It took me 5 years to get my first degree…I recommend the long way πŸ™‚

  24. Thanks so much for liking a recent post of mine! I’m glad we’ve connected – your blog is inspiring and I’ll be visiting often. And congrats on your book!!

  25. Congratulations!!! I will be buying it later tonight. I am all booked out so i can’t read it immediately but once i am done with one of the 3 books i am currently reading, i will read.
