I enjoy your French Word-a-Day tremendously, and look forward to reading your book. Good luck! I sympathize with you - I'm not a natural salesperson either, but sometimes we need to do things that aren't so easy for us.

Betty Rosbottom

Good luck and bonne chance! I just order a copy!

Kristin Espinasse

Carol, I will be sure to let you all know?

Felicitations!! Here are some excellent tips for marketing your new book: http://www.jamesaltucher.com/2012/06/the-choose-yourself-era-how-to-sell-300000-books/

Bonne Chance et bon courage. Merci bien pour tout que vous faites.

Frieda Oxenham

It's done, and I can confirm that it is also available now on Amazon.co.uk where I bought it.

Jules

KRISTI DARLING,

Looks like you are doing fine on your own with this delightful marketing plan….it´s always so much better when it is straight from your heart instead of planned out by marketing guru´s. I am always so proud that you have the courage to just be yourself.

If all of your dear friends here on French Word-A-Day continue on spreading the word I do believe you will be able to break through that barrier and catch the attention of Amazon´s ´Best new releases`. Hopefully all of your friends will form your own sales team and encourage all of their contacts and local bookstores to rally around and push you up the charts. I just think that there is power in love and there is definitely love in all of the hearts of your readers, wanting you to succeed so you will have the stamina to continue on down this wonderful path and continue on with your dream. Actually you are right in the ´mist´of living your dream right now - you are one blessed young lady and as always I am so proud of you. I´ll be back later, love reading all of your friends comments.

XOXO

MOM

Kristin Espinasse

Aw. Thanks, Mom. XOXO :-)

Mary

It looks very interesting but I don't find a Kindle version...will that come out soon? I avoid buying printed books if at all possible.

Silvia

Hi Kristi,
I just ordered your book and I can't wait to read it.

Sandy Vichery

Hi Kristin,

Sandy Vichery

Kay

Just ordered your newest book! Now I have the entire collection! (& so do a few of my friends!)
Congratulations! Felicitations!
& I love the cover you chose....perfection.
Happy Happy Spring
(perhaps you could do as Ann Mah did w/ her book & sign bookplates w/ a note to all those who request them so we could have signed copies?! just a thought)
Kay

Patricia Flournoy

Just ordered your new book...and I will be reading it on Monday...Merci for all your posts...

Robin from Encinitas, CA

I just ordered your new book!

Kathy

Bonjour Kristi!
Just ordered your book--have them all now! LOVE the cover, too!
~Kathy A

Jane Hoppe

I just ordered your book. I'm excited to read it. Before my next Les Bavards meeting, I will try to figure out how to promote en francais.

Priscilla

Hi Kristi,
I just ordered your delightful new book on Amazon. Et le plaisir est le mien!
I read your blog faithfully and am inspired and enlightened by it.
Bon courage, Bonne chance!

Nan Morrissette

My Tom got to your blog first today and said "You have to order Kristi's book immediately! Today! And order one for me! So I ordered two and posted the link to the book and blog on Facebook. Best wishes!!! Congratulations!!! Good luck!!! We love you!!!

A. Moreau

Done and done. Looking forward to getting it in the mail!

Jan  Hersh

I am sold. :^)

Peter

I just ordered the book, and will share w/ our local French-American community group that meets next week.

Ginny Bear

After several years of enjoying your website, I look forward to a little of the back story, it seems. I have loved your website reminding me of a wonderful trip to Provence a few years ago, plus helping me retain some of my French skills after having taken on Norwegian a couple years ago!

John Sanders

Is it really side-by-side bilingual? The Amazon page implies that it isn't, because it says the language is English and never mentions bilingual.

Nina Tasi

Done! Ordered it while enjoying a cup of coffee and reading your blog!
We look forward to reading your latest literary "l'oeuvre"!!!
Wish we were in France right now..... As we look out the window , all we see is snow .... So your photos of flowers certainly bring us much joy!
Amicalement,
Charlie & Nina , In snowy New Hampshire

Judy W.

Congrats, Kristin! Just ordered my copy and will devour it when it arrives. I live the French life vicariously through you. We will all look forward to your next book!

Jill Switzenberg

Just ordered two copies--one for me and one for a friend! So happy to help. I'm a fan of yours all the way!

Mona

wouldn't miss it Kristin...just got my own personal copy to enjoy...congratulations..you are so incredibly talented besides being lovely xo

Leslie NYC

I think your announcement is great!
It's like movies: you want to really support a movie, especially a small, independent one, the first weekend.
Another way of thinking about this purchase:
All year we get to settle in with your blog and a cup of coffee and travel to Provence for FREE! A magazine I get just sent me a renewal notice for the coming year: it's $89. We could all buy a copy or two of your books when they come out, and still be way ahead!
Also, you get a percentage if we go to Amazon through the link on this page, right?
Kirstin, thanks for the richness you bring to my life with your blog.
I think your cover and its story might make this the most successful of all your books.
Cheers!

Kristin Espinasse

John, the last chapter, a tribute to a Frenchman, is bilingual. Very sorry for the confusion.
To everyone reading and commenting, thank you--it feels like a virtual book release party. Indeed, it is!

Rina Rao.


Congratulations Kristin---great!!!
Will you be bringing some when you come to Paris?

MorningStar

Hi Kristi!
Will order your book as soon as I drop this note to you! I have enjoyed all of your books, and am looking forward to adding this one to my collection. Any chance you may do a book signing in Phoenix in the near future. My friend and I live in Page, AZ ( Lake Powell) and would love to come down and meet you! (She attended an earlier one for your first book , and met you, and your husband who was offering samples of your wine ) Best wishes, and good luck to you!

Bill Crow

Kristi, I tried to buy it today but it's not available in Canada yet. Désolée!

Amitiés,

Bill

Kit Wilson-Pote

Rats! It is not yet available at Canadian outlets like amazon.ca or chapters.indigo.ca -- can't wait to be able to order it right here. Soon as ... !

Maryanne

Ordered as a gift. I will get the Kindle edition for myself. I began to follow you when my daughter gave me your first book years ago.

Judi Miller

Add me to the numbers - I just bought your book on Amazon. I love books on Kindle, but I just couldn't wait! (and, I still really love 'holding a book and going back and forth throughout the reading.') Congratulations!! I hate to tell you, reading from one of your replies, you didn't 'mess up with the natural flow of things.' And, even if you had, isn't 'messing up' actually a true part of the natural flow of things - or at least I hope so, as I am always messing up! ha ha! I am so happy for you. It must be such a relief, and at the same time, such an extraordinary feeling of accomplishment. You should be very proud - we are all very proud to 'know' a real life writer and author of books! We're coming to Paris May 16-22, then again June 12-14, Provence area May 23-30 - maybe that's one of times/places where you will have a book signing! Wouldn't that be grand!

Jan greene

I just ordered your new book! I will share it with our French friends when we are in Paris in May ! I am confident this will be a big success!

Susan

Just ordered the new book & hope your sales go through the roof!

Jules

Julie Farrar

Just tweeted and FB'ed the announcement. Off to order multiple copies. Wish I could have had my blog post ready for today, but life keeps mugging me. I will have the blog interview up by next week.

KaySue Smith

I just ordered 4 books and two of them will go to my daughter and to me. We will be visiting France for the first time this coming Fall. Marilyn and Jim Reynolds have invited us to stay with them in their beautiful home after we spend a week in Paris.

Marilyn Reynolds introduced me to your blog which delights me each time I receive it. I enjoy your humor, great photos and commentary.
Bonne chance avec les ventes.
KaySue

Beverly Aigen

I love the honesty. For that I am buying the book and excited to receive it. I look forward to sitting on my sofa, surrounded by my 4 Labs and living vicariously through your pictures and writings. Thank you for the weekly smile. All the best to you.

Carol

HI Kristen,

Will your book be available when you speak at Adrian Leed's Apres Midi next month? I would love to get an autographed copy!

Chris Allin

Dear Kristin,

I have just ordered three copies of First French Essais...and two more Words in a French Life and one Blossoming in Provence! One of my favorite things to do is give your books to my friends. They enjoy them so much I like to suprise them with another. A treasure chest opened today! Congratulations on this new book and cheers to Jules, such a supportive mom!

I ordered your new book just now from Amazon. Since it's only 15:56 hours here in Menlo Park, California, the order should count toward your first-day sales. I wish you great success with your book! Bravo d'avoir suivi vos reves en France il y a longtemps!
