Today is the last day to buy Motherhood Realized and help us get it on the New York Times Bestseller list! The window closes at midnight!

All week long the book has stayed in Amazon's #1 spot for motherhood books. It moved up to #3 in parenting books, right next to What to Expect When You're Expecting. And yesterday it jumped up 80 spots to #102 in books overall!

The momentum has been amazing. 

Yesterday, Christen Bensten ran a beautiful feature on her blog, Blue Egg Brown Nest. You'll love her angle on women helping women, and writers helping writers. I adore her for helping us so close to the deadline. And you'll be awed by the beautiful furniture she refinishes. She's a wife, mother, writer, and potter. Heather and Kir, thanks for introducing us!

Meridian's cover story yesterday was about our book, including some excerpts, if you want to take a gander.

And I wrote a blip for Segullah that ran Thursday.

These little people above have been very patient as I've spent way more time on the computer this week, than usual. Which has been kinda hard. But they too, are hopeful about getting our book on "the list." 

"Did it make it yet?" they asked me this morning.

Bless their hearts.

And bless your generous hearts. All you who ordered copies... and in same cases, stacks. Ah. I love you.

So in the last few hours, if you can think of anyone you haven't told about our book, please do! It really is more than a book. It's a movement. 


  1. Oh I'm on Amazon's site even as we speak. Thanks for being part of something wonderful! Good luck with the countdown!

    1. Lisa, bless your heart. Thanks for your support! By midnight last night, we had moved up to #27 in books overall on amazon. Pretty amazing!

  2. So, did you make it?????

    So long,

    1. It's looking very good. NYT won't publish their list until Friday April 4th. But by midnight last night, we had moved up to #27 in all books sold in the world by Amazon. That's incredible. And we're thrilled with the success. Thanks for your sweet encouragement. xoxo

  3. So fabulous - I bought it! Cannot wait to read it. xoxoxo

  4. Mine came earlier this week! So happy! :D

  5. You did such a good job on this, Cath. I stand in awe.
