Next month, my first book (which I lovingly refer to as my “third child”) turns 2 years old. It’s hard for me to really believe that it’s actually been that long, mostly because these last two years have not at all gone the way I thought they would.
With “Musings of a 20-Something Mom” getting up there in book age (which I imagine to be a lot like dog years) I decided it was finally time to give it the attention it deserves. I may not have been wildly successful in my self-publishing venture, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still have fun with it, and it’s never too late for fun!
I have a crazy idea. A crazy insane and HUGE idea, and I need YOUR help- ALL of you- in order to accomplish it!
For Musings’ 2nd birthday, I want to get it on a Best-Sellers list. Before you sit back in your chair or trip over the sidewalk while saying “WHAAAAAAT?” bear with me. Depending on the month, this can be a simple thing to do! If it doesn’t make it on, that’s okay- but I’ve at least got to TRY, right? That’s where y’all come in!
I need everyone and their mother sharing the book sale with your FB friends, Twitter followers, Instagram lurkers- everyone! If you downloaded the book during the 3-free day, if you had Musings before, if you’re still in the middle of reading- share! Be as annoying as a car salesman; it IS just a dollar, after all (and the paperback is as low as I was allowed to take the price as well!)
Yes, I realize this may be asking a lot- the bugging of your friends (even if I think annoying people can be fun at times) and family members, so that’s why I have plentiful rewards for your help! Yay!
No matter WHAT happens, list or no list, I will be giving away a signed copy of “Musings of a 20-Something Mom”, some bumper stickers, and other goodies I can find and toss in a box. Maybe I’ll toss in some of my favorite candy, some Legos (muaahahahha. Okay, I wouldn’t do that) or just something I love that I need to spread the fandom of; ya never know what ya might get!
If we can get Musings to 2,000 sales, I’ll give away 2 boxes, 3,000- 3 boxes, all the way up to 5 boxes (what? I’m a starving artist!)
Every time you share, on Facebook or Twitter, or any place you can think of- it will count as an extra entry to win one of these goody-boxes!
MYSTERY! INTRIGUE! FUN!
I’m dying to make all 5 boxes, so that means y’all need to share like you’ve never shared before!
I truly believe that with the power in numbers and word of mouth- we really can rally together and get “Musings of a 20-Something Mom” on a best-sellers list! If you loved it, tell people why, if you don’t have it- get it! Let’s do this shit!
Below is a rafflecopter where you can record every share.
One last note: I am not looking to do this to make oodles of cash. It’s actually kind of laughable how little I make from each book when it’s only .99 per download. I am doing this because I love to write, and want more people to read it!
Dear people writing articles on ways to get siblings to get along, I'll save you the time. The answer is "Don't let them play together"

I've gotten to the point where I'd let my kids summon a demon with a Ouija board before I'd let them play Monopoly together again.
