THANKS Everyone!

Today Mormon Times reported that Women of the Book of Mormon climbed to #2 Bestseller on the Deseret Book Top Ten bestsellers list.

A big thank you to my blog followers for the reviews and word of mouth.

My editor told me that the book is going into a 2nd printing.

Below, I included a picture of my editor (Eliza) so she can get some credit. We are posing at the Whitney Gala that was this past weekend. Also, in the red dress is Danyelle Ferguson, who has her first book coming out in June, called (dis)Abilities and the Gospel.

The three ladies from the LDS Women's Book Review Podcast also chatted with me about the book. I'll post the podcast when it's ready. Below is Hillary, Sheila, Me, and Shanda.

Tamara Hart Heiner said...

Congrats! So nice to meet you in person and I loved the conference! What a great get-together!

Maria Zannini said...

That is terrific news! I'm so proud of you!!

(I have a special on exclamation marks today!)

Heather B. Moore said...

Thanks Rebecca & Maria!

Tamara--it was great to meet you too.

Stephanie Black said...

Congratulations, Heather! That's fantastic, and so well deserved!

Congrats, Heather! I have to tell you that this morning, as I stumbled out of my bedroom to join the family in scripture study, my husband was holding Women of the Book of Mormon and he and the kids were already in discussion over Moroni's mother, the wife of Mormon. I guess my husband (and bishop) has been reading the book, which impressed me, because he just doesn't have much down time. He said he is really appreciating the insights. So, thank you! It means a lot to me when he finds something that adds to his day, instead of drains him.

Went to Walmart this morning and there's this big display of your book, all the way out here in Tooele. Bet you could do a signing out here at Latter Day Book :)

I picked up a copy just for the novelty of putting it on the belt with my milk and waffles lol. And, I needed to buy a copy for my sis in law.

Thanks, Stephanie!

Krista--thanks for sharing that. I've had several men tell me how much they've enjoyed the book as well--so it's not just for women :)

Ironically, the chapter on the wife of Mormon has been many people's favorites.

Cheri--that's cool it's in the Walmart in Tooele. I've done a signing before at Latter Day Book. It's been a few years though.
