Perfectly Unique: Here we go!!!

on September 4, 2012 in Perfectly Unique with 16 comments by

Dear friends,

So today is a big day in our little world. I literally cannot believe it is actually here!

Perfectly Unique releases out to the masses.

Whoa whoa whoa.

This book is so dear to me. From when I wrote it for a small group of high school girls in my living room, to self-publishing it as From Head To Foot, to now when big ol’ Zondervan has taken the reins and made it into Perfectly Unique.

What a wild and crazy five years.


You’ve been a part of those years, in one way or another, and today I would love for you to be a part of it all again.

Help me? Please?

. . . . .

Here are some options of how you can help make today a huge success. You can do all of these or any combo or just #5.


Here it is on Amazon. Buy one for yourself and one for the teenage girl that lives on your street or the one who sits in front of you at church.

Or go to the store and get it! I KNOW. Crazy idea. I love local bookstores and totally support them. If you go there and they don’t have Perfectly Unique, ask them to order it!

. . . . .


If you’ve read the book already, leaving an Amazon review would be REALLY helpful.

. . . . .


I’d love if you would tweet about the book, post on facebook about it, pin the cover on Pinterest.

Here’s an example tweet if you just wanna copy and paste:

My friend @annieblogs’s new book #PerfectlyUnique releases today! Get your copy here –>

(PS- that’s just a short version of the Amazon link)

Or you could say whatever you want…. I’m not the boss of you.

On facebook, when you are sharing the Amazon link, feel free to tag my author page.

If you have a blog, will you blog about the book? I have a whole email for bloggers- let me know if you want me to send that to you… we can do an interview or whatever you want!

ALSO… tweet me some pics when you have the book or see it at a store! I want to see YOU with Perfectly Unique!

. . . . .


You know, everyone you see today. And tomorrow. And this week. πŸ™‚

. . . . .


I just need my friends covering this whole thing today. That would mean a ton.

. . . . .

I’m really grateful for you. It means so much that you even care about Perfectly Unique. Really really.

Today is a dream come true. [Reading those comments… I’m kinda undone all over again.]

Thanks for being a part of this. I’m gonna stop before the tears get to be more than I can control.

Thanks thanks thanks.

    Annie, I’ve been a “silent” visitor to your blog for many years. I apologize for having never commented before. May GOD bless you today and in the days to come. I have enjoyed reading along on your journey to this day. I may not get to do it today but I am planning to order a copy of your book for my daughter. We’re facing some tough issues right now and I know this would be a good read for both of us.

    Sooooo excited for you, Annie! And I’m looking forward to seeing how your book impacts the lives of many young women–including the two who reside in our home. Thanks for writing and speaking truth!
