Yesterday was one of those days that I really, really wished Ana and I didn’t live so far apart. I woke up to the news that though it won’t hit shelves until Sept. 4, our book, Bilingual is Better, published by Bilingual Readers, is already available for pre-order on Amazon! And all I wanted to do was run out and give Ana ¡un abrazo fuertísimo!
After all the sleepless nights and the many weekends spent encerrada in the library, I really don’t have the words to tell you how this feels! Seeing the cover of our book on Amazon made this all the more real! We are extremely proud of the work we’ve done and really can’t wait until we can finally share it with all of you.
The official title of our book is Bilingual is Better: Two Latina Moms on How the Bilingual Parenting Revolution is Changing the Face of America and, modestia aparte, we’re super happy with how it came out. With chapters on everything from why bilingual truly is better to identity and assimilation, our aim was to make sure there was something for everyone.
Oh, and we’re super happy to finally be able to publicly thank the awesome Jeannette Kaplun, of TodoBebé and Blogs de Mamás, for writing the perfect forward. ¡Mil gracias, amiga!
Since you are all part of this revolution, we can’t do this without you, ¡para nada! As first time authors we are barely learning what it takes to get a book on the shelves of bookstores. According to many articles we’ve read and advice we’ve received, Amazon pre-sales are extremely important since this is mostly what determines how many actual paperback prints get ordered by the likes of Barnes and Nobles.
If you are planning to one day buy the book, we urge you to consider taking advantage of the pre-order price of $17.99. Not only will this get the book in your hands as soon as it comes out, but you will also send a loud message to bookstores letting them know there’s a huge need for this book to be largely available in print.
Here are some easy ways you can send a loud and clear message that Bilingual IS Better!
