And then, with Christmas right around the corner, and with hearing from so many of you who have this on your Christmas lists or are planning to give it away this Christmas, I wanted to add a little something.

I’d love to send you a signed, custom Bookplate in time to personalize your gift of Surprised by Motherhood.


It will cost you ZERO DOLLARS. {Well, except for the postage and the actual book itself, eh}.

So here’s how you get yours:

All you have to do is fill out the below form and then send me a postage prepaid envelope with your address.

Then hey presto, pretty, custom, stickable bookplates will arrive in your mail box for you to put inside the copies of Surprised by Motherhood that you’re giving away for Christmas. (Or that you’re keeping for yourself, of course.}

And if you’re overseas, why not just print the pretty printable and fill it in yourself as a card to go with the book? Or print any of these lovely quotes from the book as gifts to go with the book? 

Because really, this book is for everyone – dads who wonder what goes on in the mind of their wife during her days of motherhood, the new mom who’s scared that she’s not brave enough, the motherless daughter who isn’t sure she can do it without a mom to show her how, the sister, the aunt, the grandma.

This book is for all of us who have ever mothered and felt unqualified for the task.

It would be my honor to sign this small note to the brave women in your life. I only have a couple hundred. And if you’ve bought 7 copies of Surprised by Motherhood, then I’m happy to sign seven bookplates for you! Bought 50 – I’ve got 50 bookplates coming your way. Got 10 in your  Amazon cart right now? 10 bookplates can be yours!

Grab your copy at Amazon today, get the awesome 30% discount and then fill in the form below so I can send you a personalized bookplate.

So order away and I shall start my finger warmups.

Much love , LJ
