      Thanks bro. I think I liked my other cover better, but I figure they know what sells best :)

    Way to go Lorilee! We homeschool, too. Let me know if I can help. I know you will do a great job.

    Congratulations! The new title is very good although it isn’t as catchy as your original. But the word “handbook” really gives it some authority.

    Nice to see your hard work paying off for you.

      Bill, thanks! I liked my other title too, but I guess it doesn’t really tell people what the book is about. There is over 20,000 of the 321 Stop books floating out in the world already, we will see how the new cover, title, and traditional publishing works. It will be really neat to compare the two formats with the same book!

    Congrats! I am very happy that you are happy. :)

    I just wanted to let you know that you were already a published author!!

    I love your books. They are not any better now just because a “publisher” had redone your book a bit. It was already a great book.

    You should be very proud of the work you did on your own TERMS! I can’t think of anything better than that. :)

    Lorilee, that is so great!! I’m so excited and proud for you! It just proves that when you have passion, you can overcome (what you thought were) your weakest areas and turn them into your greatest success! I hope to get a copy when it comes out in April! :)

    I’m doing a HAPPY dance inside my heart! This is SO exciting, Lorilee! You deserve this and you earned it! God has given you a “voice” to share with others. I can’t wait to see how He uses you in even greater ways.

    Congratulations!

    That’s fantastic news Lorilee. I think we can safely say you are OK at this writing thing! Isn’t it great how the Internet provides the opportunity to emerge as a writer without needing to rely on traditional publishing channels. You have already proven yourself as a blogger and ebook writer so it’s great to have this opportunity emerge from all that work.

    Thats fantastic news Lorilee. I love how the Internet provides the opportunity for writers to present themselves without the need to go through the traditional publishing route. You have certainly earned your credentials as a blogger and eBook writer, and its great to see that acknowledged by a conventional publishing house. I am intrigued. Are we to expect a Big News #2?

    • Lorilee Lippincott
      Thursday, 17 January 2013

      Yes, a Big News #2 is coming ;)

      I love the internet too. I love reading other self-published books and I love the fact that I can write books and have them published if a publisher picks them up or not. I have a few more book ideas I want to work on this year :)

    Congratulation, What a blessing! I am also a homeschooler who would be happy to help. I have lead a homeschool support group in our community for the last 10 years or so. I am new to the blogging world though. Your blog is one of the first that I have read! Thank you for the encouragement. I look forward to getting your book when it comes out.

    Just discovered you! You have great perspective! Other than the kindle version (I’ve no Kindle!), do you have any other options to purchase your book before April?

    • Lorilee Lippincott
      Saturday, 19 January 2013

      Lisa, unfortunately I have an agreement with the publisher not to sell the old version of my book after Jan 15. I have my newer book Simple Living – 30 days to less stuff and more life (on simple30.com) that is available. It is shorter and easy to read on the computer because the chapters are short and the assignment is most of the time :) You can get a kindle app for the computer. If you have any trouble let me know, I can get it to you in another electronic format. (I just did this one in electronic format because it is shorter and not much of a paper book)

    How exciting! You definitely deserve any “luck” involved. But I’m pretty sure it’s all the hard work :) Enjoyed the book, and so glad you get to share it in a new format!

    Congrats Lorilee! That is exciting! I wish the homeschooling one was already done, we will be “officially” starting with our kindergartener in the fall :) I’m pretty sure our simple homeschooling will be more of the same – drawing, exploring, reading, but it’s still easy to get drawn into too much
