a print for now and later.

simple_matters_pre_order8714There are eleven weeks until my book wends its way onto shelves and bedside tables and gets tucked into backpacks. (Here’s hoping.)

Truth be told, I’ve never been much of a pre-orderer. I’ll wait, I’ve always thought. I’ll get that one once I see it in the local bookstore. I’ll borrow my sister’s copy. I’ll put it on my Christmas wishlist. It feels a little bit funny to write a post encouraging other people to pre-order a book, and especially surreal that it’s one that I wrote.

But in hopes that some of you might be more liberal in your pre-ordering tendencies than I have been, I’ll be signing prints of one of my very favorite images from the book and putting them into the mail to everyone who pre-orders the book (and who fills out the necessary info into the form below!).pre-order print simple mattersIt’s a little something special from me to you. And also a little something that you might be able to tuck underneath a tree or into a stocking or into an envelope in case the holidays feel like the right time for sharing Simple Matters with someone on your list.

If you’ve already pre-ordered Simple Matters, a million times thank you. You can fill out this form with your mailing address and order confirmation number and a signed print will make its way to you. If you haven’t ordered yet, you can mull it over for a minute or two and then hop back here to fill out this form after you do.

    The only books I’ve pre-ordered have been one or two from the Harry Potter series and yours! I love your blog and am so excited to read your book, so I had already ordered it and am now looking forward to receiving it even more.

      YAYAY! This is exactly what my younger sister said!

  • Reply Becky October 29, 2015 at 11:36 am

    Erin, I am so excited to read your book. Eeek! Do you know if it will be available as an e-book? My version of simplifying includes not buying paper books that I have to lug from city to city, country to country. I hope so!! Will you let us know if it becomes available for pre-order?

      Yes! Will there will definitely be an e-book! As far as I understand that’s not available for pre-order, but will let you know as soon as it is! (And happiest travels!)

    Can’t wait to have a little piece of you (and James, and Faye) in our Minneapolis home. Looking forward to seeing your masterpiece. Congratulations!

    Hey Erin,
    I preordered through Amazon so unfortunately can’t get the personalized copy. However I wish you much success and I can’t wait for your book. I bet it’s beautiful.


    • Reply Erin Boyle October 29, 2015 at 12:59 pm

      You can! Just fill out the form with your order #!

  • Reply Rita Tocta October 29, 2015 at 12:39 pm

    This is so sweet, so you! I’ve pre-ordered your book the moment I saw your post announcing it. It was the first book I ever pre-ordered. I never pre-order, usually I don’t see the point and I’m afraid if I’ll still want the book when it is released, maybe I’ll be able to check it first at a bookstore, etc. But this time it felt like a present I was giving myself. That it will arrive in the perfect time. I love that it’s being released in January, months of new beginnings but also Winter, when we all need a little inspiration 🙂

    When I read the post I’ve filled out the form, and only after I read the last lines. Probably it won’t be shipped to Portugal, right? Just US?

    Best wishes, Rita

    • Reply Erin Boyle October 29, 2015 at 1:00 pm

      Technically, yes! Just sent a note your way.

  • Reply Kate October 29, 2015 at 3:52 pm

    The Powell’s pre-order hasn’t been working for me. Do you know anything about that?

    • Reply Erin Boyle October 30, 2015 at 11:20 am

      Working on it!

  • Reply Archana October 29, 2015 at 3:59 pm

    Am waiting on your book. But live in a tiny apmt and refuse to bring in paperbacks. Will wait till a kindle version is available.

    Good luck on your book Erin.

    • Reply Erin Boyle October 30, 2015 at 11:20 am

      Kindle version is a-coming!

  • Reply Jen October 29, 2015 at 6:31 pm

    I’m normally quite anti-preorder myself as well, but I’m such a sucker for things that are autographed by their author… I suppose I might have to make an exception? 🙂

  • Reply Hannah October 29, 2015 at 8:01 pm

    Thank you for the lovely photo incentive! So excited to read the book 🙂

  • Reply rebecca October 29, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    So excited about this! Have always loved your blog and I think your book will be perfect for the new year.

    Hi Erin, not sure if you can send to Australia but thought I’d try my luck anyway x

  • Reply Alexa October 30, 2015 at 10:37 am

    Congrats on your first book, friend. Can’t wait to read! I got a copy for my sister for an early Christmas present, too <3

  • Reply Guro October 31, 2015 at 9:36 am

    I was planning to pre-order, and now I did it! I filled out the form even though I now understand it’s for US-readers. That’s OK. I’m just happy to get the book to Norway! Your blog is a great source of inspiration me – soon to be five in a rather small apartment.

  • Reply Kim November 1, 2015 at 3:12 pm

    I was hoping to order one for myself but also Christmas gifts for my two sisters in law. Would it be possible to get notes for them too? Or does that count as exceeding my one per household limit?

  • Reply Victoria November 4, 2015 at 6:20 pm

    yay! I cannot wait for this to come and the signed print is really just the icing on the cake! your blog has truly reminded me that simple matters and that it can be done without feeling restricted or limited. love love love.

    • Reply Victoria December 9, 2015 at 1:38 pm

      just pre-ordered a copy for my good friend for her birthday too. this book is going to be perfect for her 🙂

    Hi Erin, I’m so excited to receive your beautiful book, just like a lot of people on this site it’s my first preorder, then I filled out the form and realized you are not sending this print to Vancouver Canada:(
    Is this correct information?
    All the best!

    • Reply Erin Boyle December 4, 2015 at 2:23 pm

      Hi Clare, Thank you so much for your support! I’m looking into this, but I think the reason the reason we can’t extend the offer internationally has to do with offers of this nature being prohibited by gambling/lottery laws in Canada and elsewhere! Much love to all of my international readers all the same, of course!

  • Reply Erin M December 4, 2015 at 2:33 pm

    Hi Erin, Love your blog, can’t wait for your book! …. Question about arrival time…. will it be here by christmas if I preorder it on amazon or will be out in January? Thank You! Happy Holidays!

    • Reply Erin Boyle December 4, 2015 at 2:37 pm

      Thank you so much! The book’s not out until January! If you preorder now, and enter your info in the form above, you can get a print in time for Christmas….but the actual book won’t ship until January!

  • Reply Marie Carter December 6, 2015 at 1:10 pm

    Erin, we live in a tiny 2 bedroom in NYC so I really struggled with purchasing a hard copy rather than an ebook version. I decided that your photographs are too beautiful and inspirational to *not* see in print so I will find a good space for it 🙂

  • Reply Ally December 15, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Done 🙂

  • Reply catie January 9, 2016 at 1:47 pm

    just pre-ordered mine.
    i’ll clean & simplify now so i’m in good shape when it arrives ♥

  • Reply Cate January 11, 2016 at 1:28 pm

    Ah nuts…I just preordered, but from Amazon Canada. Can I amend to have the print sent to an address in Phoenix? If not, I am just so stoked to get this book. All the best. 🙂

    • Reply Erin Boyle January 12, 2016 at 9:35 am

      oh, dear! i’m not in charge of the list, so i’m not sure there’s anything i could do at this point! thank you *so* much for your support!
