Wow! What a month April was and now May has almost passed us by as well. Serena has reminded me time and again to slow down and appreciate this “one wild and precious life” (Mary Oliver) but it has been hard as the world moves around me at a furious pace. Today, however, I am slowing down to say a huge thank you! Serena hit the web April 27th and in three days sold 39 copies!! I have not seen the numbers for May yet but we are excited to see how many Serena snails are out in the world.
We have been busy replacing pixelated copies that were ordered in the first 24hours of sales. Please let me know if you have a book that seems out of focus and I will send you a new, signed copy.
Here are some numbers:
39 Books Sold in the first 72 hours
5 schools with the Curious Little Snail in their classrooms
1,500 business cards ordered
19 signed copies mail to eager friends
1 big beautiful ceramic snail on my desk that needs to be painted! ,
Check back in Monday to see how this ceramic snail comes to life.
