A Little Glitch.

Hey all!!!

Quick update on What Women Fear, because I have gotten a lot of messages about it and B&H has been hard at work trying to figure out what’s going on. Here’s the scoop. A bunch of people who had pre-ordered the book got messages saying that the release date had been pushed back (it hadn’t been). I believe it was saying it wasn’t going to be shipped for several weeks, but it looks like it was just some fluky email because they have plenty of stock and people are saying that they are getting them.

Amazon is having a similar situation (although it may be fixed by now) saying that it wouldn’t be shipped for a few weeks. They also have full stock and are shipping, so I think it should ship right away even though it says it’s longer.

For the record, I take it as a compliment that Satan is getting involved with this, because I think it means I included JUUUSSSSTTT the right amount of Scripture :)

SO, because I have the greatest publisher in the universe, we are working on a little consolation prize for those of you who received the message from B&N because we are bummed that it happened. Could you do me a favor and send an email to angelac519 at gmail dot com and put B&N email in the header. Also, include an address where we could send you a little something to say thank you for being patient and sorry for the mix-up :) It would be awesome if you could just forward the email to me so we can keep track of it that way…

Nobody asked me to say this next part, but I would really like to anyway.

I am a HUGE, HUGE Barnes and Noble fan, and this little glitch IN NO WAY reflects them. In fact, I tend to believe that because someone there chose to take some big chances on a Christian book, the enemy is going to throw anything he can in the way. I’m not one to say that lightly, but I have sensed the warfare surrounding this book in a way I never have before, and none of this has surprised me in the least. I just wanted to publicly say that I have been BLOWN away by the way B&N has blessed me and supported me and I wanted to encourage you to keep on shopping over there, because when the big dogs see a little Christian book making waves, they might start to look for the wind-Maker :)

I’ll look forward to those emails and will be in touch with you!

Thank you, as always, for your grace.

With love (& SO MUCH GRATITUDE!)

P.S. Don’t stop writing your entries on the post right before this!!!! We haven’t picked a winner yet…:)

P.P.S. If you read the book and liked it, would you consider leaving a quick review on Amazon or B&N? Even just clicking the little stars helps us authors out a lot.

If you read it and hated it, pretend you didn’t read this last part. It never happened. It neeeeeever happpeennnneeeed….

    Hey there, Angie!

    I came from work this afternoon to find a copy of your book lying on my kitchen counter!  I. am. STOKED! 

    I took a little peep earlier, but now I cannot wait to fully dig into it just before bedtime!

    Love your spirit, girl! 

    Love and friendship,
    Connie

    I am super excited to get the book…I forwarded the B&N email to you already…But reading this I had to tell you a funny story.

    When I was in middle school and a regular Sunday school attender we had someone teaching our class that wasn’t our usual teacher. She went to the white board and wrote “SATAN” in big letters in what she thought was a dry erase marker…It was a sharpie…She couldn’t erase it and there those big letters stayed until someone was finally able to somehow remove it…I have no memory of what point she was trying to make, however I did get an unforgettable message about how Satan will try to insert himself where ever or whenever he can and turn things upside down…

    I picked up my copy at LifeWay yesterday.  Was thrilled to finally see it. (I’ve been looking for it for several weeks! I wasn’t sure if it was a hard street date or not and since I work there, I was hoping to pick it up early!)  My daughter and I will be reading it together since we have been battling anxiety since she was five years old.  While I hate knowing that others suffer as we do, it’s good to know that we are not alone in our journey.  (Although we are never really alone, are we?  The Lord has been truly mighty to save throughout. ) 

    Congratulations!

    I ordered mine last night from Amazon at about 10:00 pm and I got an email saying they shipped it this morning :D

    Not sure what’s happened, but I ordered mine on 9/1, and got the notice that it shipped on 9/2.  Would LOVE a free gift, but when I get the book, as they say, “your presence is the gift.”

    Hey Angie… I just bought your book and started it last night.  I’m reading it as I feed our newest baby!  Love it so far!

    Love,

    I am planning to read the book and post a review.  Saw you in Atlanta and you really touched my life with your candidness.

    Wanna send a little gift to the people that received the Amazon message too, by any chance? ;)

    I got a new email today from B&N saying the book shipped, so it sounds like they solved the problem. Yippee!

    I just ordered your book on Amazon and am so excited!  Something else too, I signed up for Amazon Moms and I got free shipping!  Wooohooo, can’t wait for the book to arrive!  I really need to read your book!  I am walking through some fear right now.  I am pregnant with our 4th child.  I had a late miscarriage in April with our 3rd child due to Trisomy 21.  Every appointment almost makes me sick with fear wondering if this baby is healthy and going to have a heartbeat.  The words of “no heartbeat” at 12 weeks pregnant haunt me!  I read your book “I Will Carry You” this summer.  It was so touching!  You are an amazing writer, Christian, Mom, and Wife.  God has truly blessed you and I am honored to be able to read your words!

    you’re so funny Angie, planning on ordering it now! I’m sure I’ll love it and be happy to write a review after I’m finished reading.
