What a day!
I scheduled my first newsletter announcing the arrival of my paperback to go out this morning. By 8AM, 200 people had opened the email, and by the end of the day, my open rate was 15.6% higher than the industry average (31.9% open rate), with a total of 522 people reading it! The amount of support that came flooding in after I sent that email was overwhelming – you just never know where the support will come from.
Email marketing is not to be overlooked – I’ve sold more books today than I have in the past month and a half. Thank you to everyone out there who has helped so far – more to come soon.
When I got home, two large boxes were sitting on my kitchen counter – the 50 books I ordered for my launch party have arrived, and my oh my – it all feels so official. Wow – three years later, and what started as an idea, a few letters, and a little laptop is now a real life book.
Now that the books are here, I’m able to offer signed copies for sale (unfortunately for now, it’s only in the United States)! If you are interested in receiving a signed copy, please click below:
Also, the arrival of the books mean I can officially set a date, and celebrate! Let me know if you’re interested in attending the launch party – if you happen to be (or want to be) in the Chicago area, and I’ll add you to the list.

Thank you all again – I promise more real (and less promotional) blog posts soon! I have a juicy one coming up on why I decided to stay in Chicago, rather than pursue acting again in Hollywood…
In the meantime, I present to you the BOOKS….
