New York Times Best Seller List: Download file

Well, we've nearly done it. This week "Mother Angelica's Little Book of Life Lessons.. " premieres at number 8 on the New York Times Best Seller List.
First of all, thank you for making the book the raging success that is has become. Every day I receive wonderful letters from readers touched by Mother's wisdom and moved by her instruction. The book has been classified as an "Advice Hardcover", which is one of the most competitive lists of all. So even though we are in the top ten, the book has to be in the top 5 to count as a formal bestseller! (Don't ask me why--only the NYT knows). I hope you'll help us push the book up the list and over the top this week.
The presence on the list will make the little book more visible and attract a whole new readership. With Easter coming and Mother's Day in the wings, Mother's Little Book is a gift that I know will bring joy and hope to whomever reads it. Thanks again for all your support.

Book Release and Special Gift

Dear Friend,

I just wanted to remind you that MOTHER ANGELICA'S LITTLE BOOK OF LIFE LESSONS AND EVERYDAY SPIRITUALITY will be hitting bookstores on Tuesday, March 6th. Most of the material in this book comes from private instruction given to Mother's nuns and to the laity over a thirty-year period. So you've never seen this advice before. Though I wrote a few introductions throughout, what you will find within is pure, unvarnished Mother Angelica.

As a SPECIAL GIFT to you, if you buy the book in the next two weeks I will send you an autographed bookplate, which you can easily paste into your copy.

Here's all you have to do. Go out and buy a book at any bookseller, then send me an e-mail at with the following

1) Where you purchased the book(s)
2) How many copies you bought
3) When you purchased the book(s)
4) Your mailing address

I hope that you can be transformed this Easter, and that this little book assists you, now and always.

Thanks for supporting the book, and for looking in on the program.
Hope to see you on the book tour (check my website for my complete schedule).


New Website and Book Release

I am thrilled to welcome you to our new and improved website. I am so looking forward to the release of a book I edited for Mother Angelica and her Monastery entitled: Mother Angelica's Little Book of Life Lessons And Everyday Spirituality. It would make a wonderful Easter gift for that special person in your life, and could be a fantastic pick me up for someone who might be in despair or suffering. Mother's teaching is an amazing curative, as most of you know. I encourge you to go out and get one of these magnificent little books for yourself and a friend or loved one. You should be able to find it wherever books are sold, and especially at national chains, such as Barnes and Noble, Borders, etc. Or you can buy them online now at Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Prepare to be transformed. I'll be checking in here, regularly. And thanks for stopping by. Yours, Raymond.
