It’s a strange experience to be asked to write a book you never once dreamed of writing. As a kid I don’t think I ever once said one day I’m going to grow up and write a book. Of course I never thought I’d grow up to be an organizer either so there you go. What I have dreamt about though since starting this blog of mine is helping as many women as I can enjoy the bountiful benefits of living an organized life. The daily emails I get from overwhelmed and desperate women breaks my heart and makes me wish I could do more. I try to answer as many as I can. I’ve been able to point them in the direction of previous posts I’ve written that may provide some hope, a place to start, or even a little encouragement. Yet my list of helpful posts is incredibly outdated and in all honesty not terribly organized. To have to weed through pages and pages of previous posts not to helpful either. I knew there had to be a better way.
That way came in way of a book offer, a book offer I initially said no to accepting. I honestly didn’t know how I would find the time to write it and if I didn’t have the time to write it, how in the world would overwhelmed women (and men) find the time to read it especially considering the already saturated market on this topic. It just didn’t make sense to me. Then my publisher suggested a tips book, a compilation of my 101 best organizing tips and tricks in an easy to read format. That got my attention and after some more discussion I agreed to do it.
I’m not going to lie though, it was still a lot of work and my deadline was short but with the prayers of many and the blessing of my parents taking the kids for a month (something I am so completely grateful for!) I was able to finish it just in the nick of time.
Today after months of waiting, Clutter Rehab finally arrived in my mailbox. It was very exciting! Those of you who pre-ordered (thank you!) should be receiving them soon as well. I’m anxious and scared all at the same time to hear what you think. But most of all I just want this book to be helpful and encouraging and not just one more thing on your to do list. I promise you it’s an easy read and it’s actually pretty small in size which I’m thrilled about because it will fit easily into a purse, perfect for those small pockets of time we have in our day when waiting to pick up kids, etc. It isn’t a ton of pages or even very complex but it does provide simple straight forward bites of organizing help that (hopefully) won’t leave you feeling more overwhelmed than you were before you starting reading it. Sample pages are now available on Amazon if you’d like to check out the format. It’s also on sale right now for $9.32!
I’m such a freak!
Thank you everyone for your patience and support in this endeavor of mine. I really do hope you like it. If you happen to be out and about over the next couple of weeks and see my book in a store I’d love it if you could snap a picture of it for me. I live in a town without a bookstore (gasp, I know!) and won’t be back into the city for another couple of weeks and I’m dying to see it on the shelves!
Thank you, thank you!
