Facebook Parties, Twitter Parties, and More!

Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

My husband and I went out birding, our new geeky hobby. Yesterday we saw a snowy owl, a barred owl, a tundra swan, and a brown creeper, which were all new species to us. If you’re not into birding, no worries. But I just love the chance to get outdoors and walk with my hubby! We made our kids come along to see the snowy owl, and we brought a 10-year-old boy who’s a friend of the family, so it was a fun family day.

And now I’m back and getting ready for the PARTY that’s going to be happening this week, and I want to tell you all about it.

As most of you know, last week I published my new ebook The 31 Days to Great Sex, a fun challenge that you can work through with your husband to help you grow your communication, your intimacy, and your fireworks! It focuses on how to build emotional, spiritual, and physical intimacy in the bedroom, and gives you a chance to talk about some of these important issues.

I was quite overwhelmed by the response to it; thank you so much! I actually got up to #2 in the marriage category on Amazon this weekend.

And so I’d like to offer you some other ways to interact.

Facebook Party, 9 pm EST Monday night

Tonight at 9 pm EST I’ll be over on my Facebook Page hosting a big party! And how does a party work on Facebook? Well, it’s going to happen in the “Forum” section, which I’ve added right here:

You just click that Forum page, and there will be a number of different discussions going on at the same time (and I’ll try to monitor all of them. Whew!). Some will have video introductions from me, and some will just be questions.

And what will the forum topics be? That’s where you come in! Just leave a comment (anonymously if you want) in this post and tell me what you want to ask, and I’ll try to get as many of them up there as I can. Have questions you’ve been dying to ask me? Here’s your chance!

If you all come by at 9:00 pm EST, then we can chat and discuss things in real time! So come on by at 9 pm EST. You’ll have to join the Facebook Page to comment, but it’s easy after that.

Twitter Party, 10 pm EST Tuesday night

Then tomorrow night, for those of you who are on Twitter, I’ll be hosting a Twitter party at 10 pm EST, with the hashtag #31DaysFun. What does a hashtag mean? If you use something like Tweetdeck for Twitter, you can create a column based on the search term #31DaysFun, and then everyone’s posts will show up there in real time! I’ve done these before and they’re a lot of fun. So if you’re on Twitter, come join me!

You can also follow it in real time through TweetChat, which is specifically designed to let you follow certain Twitter memes.

Pin it To Win It, all week

Finally, I know how many of you love Pinterest (as do I!). Here’s a fun little thing where you can “Pin it to Win It”!

Simply go to this post:

31 Days to Great Sex is here

And hit the Pin it button at the bottom.

Choose the book cover image. Then pin it to one of your boards with your own comments, something like “Change your marriage for only $5!”, or “31 Days to Great Sex is awesome!”, or whatever you’d like.

I can then go in and see everyone who has pinned that page. And on Friday at 11 pm EST I’ll count how many pinners have pinned, and then I’ll pick a random number from random.org and I’ll choose 3 winners to win a .pdf copy of the 31 Days to Great Sex! And if you’ve already purchased a copy, then you’ll instead get a copy of my Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex. Already have both of those? I’ll give you an Amazon gift card for $20!

And if you’ve already pinned it (as quite a few of you have), you’re already entered!

So go Pin it to Win it! It takes about 30 seconds.

I hope some of those work for you! And if you’re more a blog person, I’ll be guest posting on a ton of different blogs all week. So keep stopping by for an update as to where you should go to read more, and for your chance to win!

And don’t forget–you can get your own copy of The 31 Days to Great Sex, and get your own marriage moving in the right direction, right here. It only costs $5 for a profound impact on your marriage!

    I pinned it! I love your writings on this topic! I first bought your Good Girls Guide as an eBook, then bought it in printed form. Did the same thing with 31 days….bought it on my Kindle and then wanted to be able to print it out to share with the hubby so I bought a PDF file as well! THAT’s how much I like your writings and think this is an important message and subject to talk about and it needs not to be that way.

    • I love fans like you! And thanks so much for writing the review on Amazon, too.

      • KellyK(@RNCCRN9706) says:

        You’re welcome!! I’m glad to support something I can believe in! I just re-read my last sentence above…What I MEANT to say was that I think your message is important and shouldn’t be that way.

    And for a question I’d like to ask? What translation of the bible do you prefer? I like a lot of them but my go-to translation is NIV.

  3. How do you talk to young women about sex? Specifically, how do you approach young women who are preparing for marriage? I had issues when I got married – some related to sex and some related to my terrible relationship with my mom. I knew of one woman who might be able to help, and I only knew this because one night after a margarita when our Bible study went out for Mexican she made some remark about going to park since they had the baby sitter for another hour. My eyebrows must have gone up because she just looked at us (I was with my boyfriend/now husband) and said “True love waited once but it ain’t waiting any longer!” Allen and I were so embarrassed on the drive back to my parent’s, but when I had questions about sex I figured I could ask her.

    Anyway, nowadays when women I know are getting married I often just tell them up-front that I want them to know they’ve got at least one person they can talk to about sex. I’ve never had anyone take me up on it though, and I just wonder what’s the best way of creating a culture in church and in our friendships that gives people room to ask questions – particularly the younger women? Particularly, is there a way to encourage young women without resorting to remarks that leave them unable to look their boyfriend in the eye for the next hour :) I mean, come on. We were trying NOT to think about parking the car and goofing around 😉

    • You could buy them The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex. 😉

      This is a great question! I think it would be a great topic for the chat.

  4. What a beautiful owl! I’m a little jealous.

    We’re still talking about that canoe! I think my husband wants to buy it with his bonus money next month. I think it would be fun to have that as something we do together! (And also something he can do w/ our boys.)

    I don’t know if I’ll be available for the chat, but it sounds fun!

  5. With regards to the pin it to win it, does it count if I re-pinned your pin directly on pinterest? I did that, pinning it to my own board (I Love Books) and to a wedding community I belong to (Embellish) where it has been re-pinned numerous times. Hope to join either the FB or twitter parties later -thanks!
