Bloom

Feeling some full-circle gratitude today.
In seven weeks, Bloom will be on a shelf in a bookstore.

The book trailer for Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected:




And some Valentine's Day incentives for you if you pre-order your copy. If you've already pre-ordered Bloom, you're eligible for these incentives as well, and pre-order campaign will run through April 2, 2012. Book distributors are listed on the right sidebar or you can click here: Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Books a Million and Indie Bound.

The 10-copy book club incentive sounds like a blast--I'm excited.

If you'd like to share the book trailer, you can use this post or this direct link.

I'll be posting some book quotes and a couple more galley giveaways on Enjoying the Small Things Facebook Page between now and April 3.

Again, thank you. You readers have been such an important part of our story from the day I wrote that first grief-filled post, and you have helped spread awareness and made this sucking-the-marrow stuff feel like such a shared journey. It is, really. So, thank you.

So I tried to convince my husband that in fact we do need 1,000 copies of your book, but for some reason he disagreed... Instead I have set my sights on starting a book club! I CANNOT wait to read Bloom!

Is there any plans to translate the book in other languages ? I'd love to buy some for my mother-in-law and for my mom, but they don't speak english .... We are from Brazil.
Your blog is amazing. You inspire me everyday. Your family is wonderful.
Thank you so much for sharing.
Congratulations !!

Never has it been easier to pick our book club pick! I emailed my book club gals the trailer and said, "whaddaya think?" And they all answered, "um, YEAH!" So ten books pre-ordered, the screenshot emailed and we cannot wait to Skype with ya. Just be forewarned, it's not going to be a coffee night. Wine or margaritas for these girls . . . and you too!

Jo said...

I know this post is not an up-to-date post and maybe it's weird to still leave a comment but I just discovered your blog and read through all those post.
When I watched the video I cried. I'm so touched. Your daughter looks adorable.
I just wanted to leave a comment because if there are so many emotions going on I just could not restist
greetings Jo

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Because of you (and many other "signs and wonders" along the way) we are in the process of adopting a little boy with Down Syndrome! I can't wait to watch our world Bloom :) I'm also getting a copy for my sister in law who is due with conjoined twins, who will likely not live long after birth. Thank you for telling your story and helping us find beauty even in the grief!

Brenna said...

Just watched your "Bloom" video and my 3-yr-old little guy said, "I want to go to their house." : ) Beautiful video....can't wait to read your book!

MyLyn said...

I just preordered it from amazon but i didn't know how to do a screen shot?! Can I still get the freebie? Or maybe just a signed book? :-) I'm so excited!

Aleyta said...

I love the trailer!

MissInsignificant said...

I had to come find and read this post again because someone sent me a TED talk about the power of introverts (because I am one), and I think it's great for everyone to see, whether introverted or extroverted, and especially when parenting a child who's the opposite of your own introvert or extrovert tendencies or if you're a teacher:
http://www.ted.com/talks/susan_cain_the_power_of_introverts.html?source=email#.T1FNfYUP3po.email

I do hope the link comes through. It's about 20 minutes long, but definitely worth watching.

Sheri said...

Hi Kelle - when are you going to send the stuff out for buying books? I pre-ordered 5 and sent you an email about 3 weeks ago. Thanks so much - can't wait to read your book! xoxoxox

Kt Go said...

a friend just gave me this book and I started it yesterday --- reading it until 1am almost 75% done ... it's like I'm reading the emotions of my last year. THANK you for the beauty, inspiration, motivation, honesty, and unwrapping some of that inner joy.

Pennie, for your thoughts :) said...

In. love.
I received your book as a gift and it immediately became my favorite. I love it so. It is the most beautiful book I own..the words and visually. When I am done for the night reading, I hug it. I actually hug it. You are beautiful in your normal-ness. I have just paid it forward as a gift to a dear friend and couldn't be happier. I'm hooked.
