Happiness! Happy day! It’s May, which means my new book is available!

I’ll stop with the overuse of exclamation marks now. I apologize.

If I Plug My Ears, God Can't Tell Me What to DoSome of you have advance copies because you’ve won contests or because you’re my mother. And a few of you contributed and got a copy, or you’re just a delightful person and I gave you one.

The rest of you might be dying for your very own copy of the new book, and I’m here to tell you all the ways to get one. Others of you might not be convinced to part with any money whatsoever to read books, but don’t worry. I’ll either convince you before this post is over or I’ll give you another clever option. Stay tuned.

So, here’s how to get a copy of the book:

  • Local booksellers: A few of you lucky ducks live near a real, live bookstore that carries the book or can order it for you. Baker Book House in Grand Rapids will have it, and Family Christian Stores will have it soon. Please, support your local bookstore if at all possible.
  • Discovery House–direct from the publisher! Discovery House has been amazing to work with, and they’re a great option if you’d like to order the book without having to go into public and therefore wear real pants. No one will know your pant-situation if you order from dhp.org.
  • Amazon.com: Super easy, and of course you can also order a salad spinner and a hot tub while you’re there. I won’t judge.
  • Christianbook.com: Excellent prices, and you can order in bulk and give copies away as Christmas gifts and then con your small group into studying it together. (Hint, hint.)
  • Ebooks! It’s available anywhere ebooks are sold. You know, if you’d like to save the earth and use less paper or you have a small book addiction and can’t carry thirty books at one time.
  • Direct from the author: I do have books you can buy right off me, if you live close enough. Just give me a ring/email/smoke signal.

Some of you still aren’t convinced. You get this blog for free, why would you pay money to read my craziness? Here’s the best idea ever– go into your library and ask them to order the book for the library. And then ask to be notified as soon as it comes in. Not only do you get to read it for free– you wily, frugal person, you– everyone else in your community can read it too. Win-Win-Win!

If you’re really excited about this new project, there are a couple of ways your extra support could make a huge difference:

  • I’d love it if you’d review the book on Amazon and Goodreads. Reviews are IMPORTANT these days.
  • Share this post on your social media accounts to get the word out.
  • If you’re a Pinterest fanatic, please pin these quotes from the book!
  • Come to the release party at Baker Book House in Grand Rapids on May 23, 10:30am. I’ll be signing books and we’ll have a blast.

I have to take a minute and thank you for reading this blog and the books. I appreciate you more than I can ever say– you’re marvelous!

    So happy for you! It’s a great book, too, I’ve only got a couple chapters left before I get those ALL IMPORTANT reviews up. (Yes, I mean to yell. I’m not the author so I can tell everybody: *if you’re glad you read a book and care about others finding it, write a review on Amazon*!)
    Of course, it’s going to take a while to compose an appropriate review, but the headline will be something like “laugh your way to a better relationship with God”. You know how to put the sugar in the medicine we all need.
    I’m going to email my husband right now and tell him he’s watching the kids the morning of the 23rd. 😉

    True. We could make a field trip of it. We love Baker Book Store.

    Wish I could visit Grand Rapids. That would be neat.
