Update #8

I hope you found some happiness in "Happiness Doesn't Come from Headstands!"

Comment

Hello to all! 

I hope you are all having a magnificent summer!

I wanted to let everyone know that by mid-June I sent out all of the rewards for Happiness Doesn't Come from Headstands. My hope is that all copies I have sent have been received. If not, please contact me to let me know. 

The link for the pdf / ebook will be effective for another week so if that was a reward of yours, please download your copy this week! 

There are still a few people who did not provide me with addresses - I've reached out to everyone multiple times, so if you are still awaiting a reward, please do connect as I would like to reward all those who supported my Kickstarter project. 

If you have received your book, I'd love to know what you think! As an independent self-published author, every review helps! So please help to support Happiness Doesn't Come from Headstands by offering a quick rating or review on my book page at Amazon

Also, the NEW Begin Within website is up! (created from scratch by moi!) I'd love to share it with you so please check it out if you have a chance!  

It's been an exciting time as all of the stores I've visited so far have enthusiastically offered to carry my book, and it appears that national distribution is on its way! 

If you are local to Toronto, on Saturday August 3, at 11:30 I'll be facilitating a reading and fun event for the whole family at the Chapters / Indigo at Bay and Bloor. I'd love to see you there! 

Once again, I'm so grateful for your support and sending best wishes to all. 

Best,

Tamara
