This has been a whirlwind week and a half for me since I launched The 31 Days to Great Sex. The response has been overwhelming. Thank you so much!
Today I have some winners to announce, and I want to answer some questions I’ve been sent quite a bit.
1. Pinterest Winners (and other stuff!)
First, the winners. I had a “Pin It To Win It” contest last week, where three people who pinned my post announcing the launch of the book would win it. We had 60 entries, and the winners were randomly chosen by random.org. They were Michelle, Heather, and Denna, and I’ve contacted them all through Facebook already. So congratulations!
And if you don’t follow me on Pinterest yet, you can find me here. If you want to leave your Pinterest account in the comments, I’ll follow you, too!
Here’s why I love Pinterest: it can be such an amazing ministry. So many women are on there for decorating ideas or cooking ideas, but if you post encouraging things, or marriage tips, they’ll actually read them, even if they weren’t looking for them. 80% of people on this blog found me through Pinterest. So if you think other people could benefit from this blog, pin it! And here are two good posts to start with.
2. Can you read 31 Days to Great Sex on the nook/Kobo/others?
It will be up on the Barnes & Noble site and on Chapters really soon. It was submitted over a week ago, but they take so long to approve stuff, unlike Amazon. But you can buy it in any format on Smashwords.com now, if you’re interested. Just go here. Then you can download the format that works best in your ereader.
3. I have an iPhone/iPad. Can I read it?
Yep! Here’s how it works:
Buy the .pdf. You receive the email after you purchase that has your download link:
You click where it says: “click here to download this product”.
The book then pops up. You can read it right then and there by scrolling down, like it’s a regular document, but it also prompts you to Open in iBooks (it does this automatically, you don’t have to look for the prompt):
And then it will be in your bookcase, and you can read it just like a regular book, by scrolling sideways.
It works just this way for the iPad, too!
4. I don’t know which book to buy
That’s a hard one to answer because they are so completely different. The Good Girl’s Guide is a comprehensive book about everything sex is supposed to be about. It’s a book that you read, and think about, and show certain bits to your husband, and pray about. It’s a book
to get you to think, and change your attitude perhaps, and learn new things, and get excited about! This book is primarily in your heart, and in your head.
The 31 Days to Great Sex isn’t a book that you think about as much as it is a book that you experience. You have short readings from 1-3 pages each night, some of which will require some thinking and pondering. But then you do something with your husband, whether it’s kiss, or touch, or talk, or confess, or eventually much more! One is a series of challenges for couples, and one is a book to help you think differently about sex, and understand all that it’s supposed to be.
Personally, I think I’d read The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex first. If you’ve been thinking about these things, you’ll be in the perfect frame of mind to approach the 31 Days challenge. But I can’t say that one replaces the other, because they really are different.
5. I drew winner for my Hope for the Weary Mom contest!
So we had a bunch of entries, and I asked Rafflecopter to draw a winner at random, and it was Dawn! I’ve emailed her already, too. Congratulations, Dawn!
Didn’t win? Don’t worry! On Thursday I’ll be having another giveaway. And I’m so excited to see who will win the Kindle Fire that Karen Ehman is giving away!
6. Have a blog yourself? Want to earn some money?
I have an affiliate program where you can earn 50% of the price of The 31 Days to Great Sex if you refer the sale (and you also get a portion of anything else they buy). You can put the graphic up on your sidebar, but the best way is to combine that with writing a brief post about it. It’s super easy; just fill out this form and then I’ll send you the link and all the graphics you’ll need.
Now, that’s my housekeeping for today. Do you have any questions about how the 31 Days to Great Sex works? I’d love to answer! Or ask me anything else in the comments. And remember to leave your Pinterest account!
