Carry-us

If you missed last week’s post, you missed the announcement of the release of Trusting God with St. Therese. You also missed a contest. I am giving away one signed paperback to each of these two readers:

  • Joe Sales
  • Delores Huemiller

Congratulations! I will send you both an email asking for your mailing addresses.

Thank you, everyone who entered. If you didn’t win, there will be more opportunities in the next few weeks. In the meantime, please consider buying the ebook, which is only $3.99 on Amazon.  Last week it reached #19 in Kindle Best Sellers in Catholicism on Amazon. It has also consistently been #2 or #3 in Hot New Releases in Catholicism.

Here is what some other Catholic authors have said about Trusting God with St. Therese:

“A heartfelt and fascinating story! In Trusting God with St. Therese, author Connie Rossini bares her soul and shares intimately about her lifetime struggle to trust God. Through the help of St. Therese, Rossini has discovered that God’s grace is essential to conquer fears, anger, and anxiety and will enable trust to blossom in one’s heart. Helpful reflection points punctuate each chapter. You’ll love this book!”
– Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, EWTN TV Host and best-selling author

“Connie Rossini has made a great saint into someone accessible and real in her book Trusting God with St. Therese. In the journey through this book, you’ll marvel at how much you’ll relate. But if you’re not careful, you’ll find yourself changed … for the better. Rossini has truly put together a gem of a book here, one that is sure to be loved and shared by many!”
-Sarah Reinhard, Catholic author and blogger, SnoringScholar.com

Two places to keep track of events related to my books

I set up a new FaceBook page for my publishing company, Four Waters Press. Would you please “like” the page for me? I will be posting all the events regarding my books there, as well as on my Events Page here. That way I do not have to keep book-related events on the front page of my blog. But I will continue to remind you of them as they come up. Look for a schedule for the Blog Book Tour soon. I am finalizing dates with other bloggers who have volunteered to help spread the word about my book.

If you have already bought Trusting God with St. Therese, don’t forget to email me your purchase number from Amazon. That is your ticket to my exclusive digital launch party on August 5. More details on the launch party are coming soon.

I will try to reserve most of my Friday posts for subjects other than my book, so you don’t get tired of hearing about it. Please continue to pray and spread the word about Trusting God with St. Therese. I am convinced that Therese’s teaching on trust can change lives. It has changed mine. It can change yours as well.

If you have already read Trusting God with St. Therese, please consider writing a short review on Amazon or Goodreads to let others know your honest thoughts about it. God reward you!

    I noticed that your ebooks are available on Amazon. I no longer have an account with Amazon since they started selling aborticant drugs. I switched to Barnes & Noble.

      Jerry, I had not heard that about abortifacient drugs. Can you give me a link that verifies this? My paperback book should be available through Barnes and Noble soon. But please note that I self-published through CreateSpace, which is also owned by Amazon. So anywhere you buy the paperback, the Amazon parent company will get a percentage of the price. CreateSpace is the printer and distributor. If you buy directly through me, their cut is the lowest, since they are not directly doing the fulfillment. But they will still be compensated for their printing services. Perhaps in the future I will have a time where the ebook is available elsewhere. Smashwords is problematic in another way, as they sell lots of porn. I don’t know whether Barnes and Nobles’ hands are clean. It’s a difficult culture to do business in, because almost every major company is involved in some kind of immorality. I do struggle with this. So far I have decided that not selling through Amazon would severely limit the spreading of the Gospel, since they own about 60% of the world-wide book market at this time. They enable me to reach an audience that it would be very difficult and expensive to reach otherwise. I respect people who choose not to do business with companies that promote immorality.
