Dear Readers,

Please accept this personal apology from Worthy Publishing for the delay you have experienced in receiving Wonderstruck:

"We have tremendous admiration for Margaret Feinberg's writing and work, and we were thrilled to sign her to our publishing roster. Each of us at Worthy were inspired and encouraged by Wonderstruck: Awaken to the Nearness of God and we couldn't wait to get it in your hands.

Response to this remarkable book clearly out-paced our supply. Through no fault of Margaret, replenishment has been slower than any of us would like.

That said, no excuse can offset the frustration and inconvenience this has created for many of you. We sincerely apologize to you and to Margaret.

Please know that we are doing everything in our power to get books to every retail partner including www.barnesandnoble.com and www.amazon.com to ensure you receive your books as soon as possible. We believe this book will make a significant impact in people's lives, and we're grateful for your support of Margaret as an author and friend.

Sincerely,

Worthy Publishing

orion-nebula3 copySweet friends,

We’ve heard from some of you asking, “Where is my copy of Wonderstruck? Why is it taking so long to arrive?”

Here’s the insider’s scoop: The book was never supposed to ship until December 25, but a handful of retailers jumped ahead and started shipping books ahead of time.

Because you were so kind to show so much excitement, support, cheer for the book, many of the retailers sold out of the book before it ever released.

The good news is that second print run will return from the printer on January 2. On that day, our publisher will be firing up the turbo props to get Wonderstruck to every retailer and distributor so they can get your copy to you.

But in the meantime, some of you may receive emails from online retailers asking if you want to wait or cancel your order.

Will you please extend us kindness and grace? Will you please tell them you’re happy to wait? We promise this is a book worth waiting for—a special gift awaits for you or someone you’re going to pass the book onto inside.

A few of you have mentioned that you can’t order more than 4 books from Amazon. Know that our friends have BarnesandNoble.com have stepped in, matched the Amazon price of $7.57, and extended free shipping to offers of $25 or more. We know neither retailer can maintain this generous pricing. If you're considering ordering any more copies, don't wait.

Who won the KindleFire?

Can you call something randomly selected if we prayed before making the random selection?

We’re not sure how to answer that one. But the winner of the KindleFire is:

Brenda Marlar

In case we haven’t told you lately, we’re wildly grateful for you and we’re praying that God awakens the wonder in your life throughout 2013.

pray

I poured my heart, my soul, and everything I’ve learned in 15 years of writing into Wonderstruck. When the book didn’t come out right the first time, I rewrote it.

Word. For. Word.

Then I went through another 50 drafts with friends and editors reading and rereading to try to get every image, every word just right.

We developed a launch team called “Partymob” which more than 400 people applied to be a part of—many of whom filled their blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, and Pinterest pages announcing the news of the book. Their emails, notes, and shout outs and brought so much encouragement and joy that some days it’s been overwhelming.

Meanwhile, I’ve prayed thousands of prayers. More than anything I’ve asked God that the Holy Spirit saturate the writing in such a way people feel as if they’re drinking from the chilled spring of Christ on a steamy summer day. It’s a big prayer, but one our wonder-ful God can answer.

And tomorrow, Christmas Day, Wonderstruck releases.

My friend, Mark Batterson, likes to say, “Work like it depends on you and pray like it depends on God.”

I know I have done everything I can do.

I know our team has done everything they can do.

Now we need God to do what only God can do.

I wrote this book to God’s glory and now I lift it up once again in prayer to Him.

I take a deep breath, inhale a sense that everything now rests in His hands.
