This is going to be fun … the Journey to Joy Book Launch train is pulling into Saskatoon this weekend. I am absolutely thrilled to be making one of my life-long dreams comes true—launching a book at McNally Robinson Book Store in Saskatoon.

Join me at McNally Robinson in Saskatoon on Friday, June 22 from 7 – 8 p.m. for a book reading and mini Joy Workshop!

Christalee6Thank you everyone for making Journey to Joy a sellout in just three weeks.

The book is officially the fastest selling book in my publisher’s 20-year history.

“Christalee Froese’s Journey to Joy: The Transformation of a Life…21 Days at a Time is Your Nickel’s Worth Publishing’s fastest-selling title in the company’s 20-year history—the first print run of over 1,000 copies sold out within three weeks of its launch!                                                           — Heather Nickel, publisher, YNWP

The second shipment of books has arrived, so may the sharing begin again.

Thank you to all who have given the book such great reviews:

 “Thank you! 

I’ve had this book for one hour and have already gone back for all the copies in our local Cole’s bookstore. It speaks to all the joy and pain of existence. Thank you Christalee.”

—Indigo Reader

“I could not put this book down! 

This book is a must read for anyone who has experienced a lack of emotional balance in their life, from mild discontent right through to severe depression. The author paints a vivid picture of her own personal journey using honesty and humour. By the end of the book I felt empowered and, yes, even joyous. I do not often read a book more than once but I find myself going back to Journey to Joy to re-read parts of it that spoke to me!”

—Indigo Reader
