'The Core' Memorial Day Weekend Push

I'm 'going rogue', and asking you NOT to buy my new book, The Core...

...from Classical Conversations, that is!

Instead, I'm asking my faithful fans to walk into a bookstore or go to Amazon.com on Memorial Day weekend (May 27-29) and purchase a copy of The Core: Teaching Your Child the Foundations of Classical Education.

We need to get the word out that classical education works, and Palgrave Macmillan, the publisher, can do a better job if we can get the book noticed by the big booksellers. They'll take notice if there is a high number of sales before the release date, just like when millions pre-ordered Sarah Palin's book, Going Rogue.

So on May 27-29 (Memorial Day weekend) I would love to have thousands of homeschooling families order The Core which will then be shipped out June 8th from the bookstores. Before June 8th, I'm not even selling the book on ClassicalConversations.com, but am linking all sales to Amazon.com. The Lord teaches us to be wise as serpents and so I hope this information helps you to know a little more about how publicity works.

There will be Leigh Bortins informational meetings at many local bookstores across the nation, so please look for information coming from your director about one near you, or check the events page on the website for a complete listing. If there is a meeting near you, please take a friend and order your copy!

Together we can share the blessings we've received from knowing the classical method!

Thank you,

-Leigh

P.S. In case you forget, I'll be posting and sending out regular reminders to make this project as effective as possible. -LB
