Today’s the day! INCONCEIVABLE! is going out into the world. The ebook and paperback are available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I wrote this book for very personal reasons: I know firsthand the pain of infertility and miscarriage. So, I want to give you three reasons to buy this book.
- Put your money where your heart is. You believe it’s important that realistic stories about infertility, pregnancy loss, and adoption be a part of popular culture. After all, there are plenty of misconceptions out there about these very personal topics that impact many individuals and couples. Buying INCONCEIVABLE! is one way to vote with your dollars, to say YES! our stories matter. Buying the ebook and/or paperback right now makes that statement. We have the opportunity to demonstrate to publishers and writers the importance of these stories. I’d love to see folks share the screenshot of their purchase confirmation with this hashtag: #infertilitystories.
- You want to help couples who are struggling to conceive. Even though Patrick and I became parents through adoption, we know how expensive it is to pursue fertility treatments. We took out a loan and scraped together thousands of dollars for one in vitro fertilization cycle. Like so many couples, we had no insurance coverage for IVF. Only 15 states mandate coverage of fertility treatments. That’s why I’m donating half my royalties to Baby Quest Foundation, a non-profit that awards grants to couples all over the U.S. for fertility treatments. Baby Quest founder, Pamela Hirsch awards grants, helps couples negotiate lower fees with their fertility clinic, and often can get them discounted or donated medications for their treatment. As a result of assistance from Baby Quest, 16 babies have been born, seven more are on the way, and a few other couples are preparing to have fertility treatments in the next few months. So exciting! If you or someone you know needs hope in the way of financial assistance for fertility treatment, please check out Baby Quest.
- It’s an entertaining read. Most reviews on Goodreads have been extremely positive. Actress and infertility warrior America Olivo Campbell has read INCONCEIVABLE and highly recommends it: “Wren beautifully illuminates the joy, grief, and adventure of creating a family against all odds in this heart warming and impactful story.”
To celebrate release day, I’d love it if you’d leave a comment letting me know why you’re purchasing my book. Is it a gift for someone who’s going through infertility and needs to know they’re not alone? Is it for yourself because you need to immerse yourself in a story filled with humor, hope, and heart? I look forward to hearing from you!
