BIG SALE on "Oh, Baby!"

I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that one of my publishers is merging with another, and they’re discontinuing a very large number of their current titles. Even worse, one of my books -- Oh, Baby! 7 Ways a Baby Will Change Your Life the First Year -- is one of the casualties. So, here’s the good news (at least, for you): I have a bunch of these books available, and I’m reducing them to just $5 each! (The regular retail price is $15.95.)

I really love Oh, Baby!, and I hate to see it go out of print. So, I hope you’ll help me spread the word about this terrific book! Here’s a description of its content:

Are you ever really prepared for your first child? Or even the second or third? So you’ve got the nursery set up, the diapers bought and the pediatrician selected, but you may be shocked at how, despite your best efforts, you’re totally unprepared for parenthood! Oh, Baby! 7 Ways a Baby Will Change Your Life the First Year will provide you -- the expectant or new parent -- with the “real story” about the many ways a new baby will turn your life upside-down. These changes -- which occur in 7 key areas of life -- may surprise you:

Love: A new baby will introduce you to the deepest, purest love you’ll ever know, but how can this also be a painful love?

Self: Having a child “completes you” and makes you a better person, but in what ways will it also challenge your sense of “self”?

Marriage: Baby’s first year of life exerts many pressures on a marriage. How can you and your partner work toward moving the pendulum from confinement, confusion and chaos back to fun, reward and growth?

Career: There are so many decisions to be made. Will you be able to balance all of the responsibilities that go along with making a living and raising a child -- and do them both successfully?

Spiritual Life: The miracle of new life can be spiritually awakening, but in what ways can it also test your faith?

Friends: Friendships come and go throughout your life -- but especially when a new baby arrives. How does having a baby attract -- but also alienate! -- friends?

Extended Family: Having a baby is a “family affair” that impacts -- both positively and negatively -- your relationships with parents, in-laws and siblings. Is family harmony possible?

While this book is realistic in the ways that life is changed post-baby, it offers practical advice and sensitive know-how to help you survive -- and even thrive! -- in the first year. Through the use of fascinating narratives, poignant questions, suggested activities and experienced advice, you’ll find solutions that maximize an optimistic view in tackling the challenges that are naturally a part of new parenthood. Best of all, your new coping skills will free you up from the stresses of that first year so you can love your baby -- and cherish your new family -- for the ultimate parenting experience!

Oh, Baby! is a proud winner of a Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award, an iParenting Media Award and a Mom’s Choice Award!

Just click here to get Oh, Baby! for only $5 (plus shipping). This offer remains good until all my books are gone (sniffle, sniffle).
