Weekend links

Also, I’ll be in Australia in a few weeks speaking at the ProBlogger Training Event, and they just announced something cool—virtual tickets! If you can’t make it to Oz, then get on your jammies and attend a ProBlogger conference in your living room. More info here.

The readers who’ve won a copy of The In-Between are: Jolie, Jenn, Lauren, Laurel, Crystal, Sheri, Brooke, Melissa, Kerstin, and Christine. Congratulations to the ten of you, and be looking for an email early this week! And if you didn’t win, head here to order your copy!

notes from a blue bike
Look what the mailman just brought. No matter how many books you write, seeing your book in print for the first time never stops being crazy wild. So completely grateful to get to write. #bluebike

  1. Great links! Those maps are crazy cool.

    Congrats on the book 🙂

  2. Holy moly! Judging a book by its cover over here, but COME ON, that looks awesome!! Any date set for release?

  3. My husband and I had fun looking through all the maps. A couple of them made me “Wow” and not always in a good way. I also appreciated the surviving v. thriving post. It made me consider a personal situation I’ve been trying to put into words in a new way.

  4. That map post is amazing!

  5. Love these links! Can I ask you how to be considered to get an advanced reader copy of your new book? (Sooo excited to read and promote it! 🙂

    • Just connect with Thomas Nelson and ask them! My publicist there is Emily Lineberger— 🙂

  6. Awesome book cover, congrats! So exciting to hold it.

    I’m already in Australia, but can’t make it up to the Gold Coast, so thanks for the problogger virtual ticket link, I didn’t know about that. I hope we’re able to turn on our best weather for you (it’s forecast to be 9C here on Tuesday, but I’m sure it will be delightful up there!). 🙂

  7. Congrats on your book – I cannot wait to get a copy. I am getting very excited for problogger and your sessions!

  8. Love the maps and the history of little people post! Thanks for sharing!

  9. What are the differences between a conference like problogger and the blogher type of conferences?
