UPDATE: AS OF TODAY, JANUARY 19, WE ARE AT NUMBER 257 IN ALL BOOKS ON AMAZON! THIS IS AMAZING. WE CAN GET INTO THE TOP 100 WITH JUST A FEW OF YOU HELPING!
I WORK HARD FOR YOU WHEN I WRITE A BOOK
I work really hard on the books that I write. It is my desire that you don’t end up on chapter five and find out that there was really only one good chapter. (Read any books like that?)
So, I dig deep with both social science research and prayer until there’s something really worth writing. Specifically, I feel called to write with credibility that connects the truth of God with factual science about sexuality so that the world—not just the Church—will hear the message and have a difficult time disagreeing with God’s truth.
I have never worked harder than I have on the book I am releasing today! It has taken me nine years to write What Are You Waiting For: The One Thing No One Ever Tells You About Sex, which targets the older teen and college-aged women. I’ve traced the Hebrew language of sex from Genesis through to its Greek counterpart into the book of Revelation, and discovered one of the worst kept secrets in Christianity. (I say worst kept, because EVERYONE should know this truth but I’ve only ever heard one other Bible teacher or pastor teach on it.) This is the most important thing I have ever written!
I NEED YOUR HELP
I have never asked you to help me like this before.
In twelve years of writing books and creating events, we have relied on God’s hand to guide the message to those who need it. He has done that faithfully.
My first book, And the Bride Wore White, garnered best-selling status though I was completely unknown and had no speaking platform. (Read: had never been booked to speak publicly even once!) More recently, the Secret Keeper Girl Tour has enjoyed considerable growth when the touring industry has experience great decline. Hundreds of thousands have been brought closer to the Lord through these and other resources. (I continue to be shocked that God would use me like this!)
I need your help this time. Here’s why: I believe that this book has a message to precious and so powerful that those not likely to search for answers in Christian books can benefit from it. The world is terribly broken sexually. The church is too. What I have found in the Scriptures is a much-needed message for our culture, but I can’t make them aware of it on my own. We can send a huge message by pushing this book into Amazon.com’s bestseller list.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
It’s actually very easy to push a book onto the bestseller lists on Amazon.com! Every book on Amazon.com has what’s called a “Sales Rank” which is updated hourly. For instance, Six Ways To Keep The Little In Your Girl hit the #1 spot on the parenting list after being promoted on Focus on the Family in October! Today it ranks like this:
• #3,841 in Books
• #12 in Parenting Teens
• #91 in Christian Living
What Are You Waiting For? is not really ranked yet since today is its release date.
Since a book’s rank is updated every hour, just a few dozen of us working together can make a book soar into onto the bestsellers list. Imagine if a few hundred of us worked together! This Book Bomb will coordinate hundreds (maybe thousands) of people ordering What Are You Waiting For on the same days—between January 18-20—and raising it to a place where tens of thousands of new people will see it.
