I start by apologising: I’m about to ask a favour. I don’t normally do this kind of thing and I’ll try not to make a habit of it. But I would love your help on this occasion.

This is the cover of the US edition of I Quit Sugar. Same-same-but-pleasantly-different.
This is the cover of the US edition of I Quit Sugar. Same-same-but-pleasantly-different.

In two weeks I Quit Sugar comes out in America. In fact, I write this post as I await my flight to Seattle (I then head to Calgary and then New York). But the way things in US Bookland work is this: if a stack of people pre-order the book – buy it before its release on April 8 – then it has fighting chance of becoming a “bestseller” and then (as a result) being stocked across the whole of America. Which is my aim. To get the book to everyone who wants or needs it. No force feeding, of course. Just available as an invitation.

So, to keep it simple (oh, I feel awkward asking – sorry!): I’d truly love it if any of you interested in buying the book could do so via pre-order. Like, today. So…

If you are a US or Canadian reader

* Click here to pre-order the book now.

* You will receive a free mini sugar-free cocktail cookbook. You’ll be able to download it straight after pre-ordering, so you can get playing right away. Click here to learn more.

* Of course you can wait until the book appears in stores April 8. But a pre-order will help me out a stack. You pay the same price for the pre-order, get something for free, plus you’ll get the book ahead of everyone else. No downside.

If you’re Australian…

* I’d love you to share this message with your American mates – alert them to my fumbly favor.

* For your troubles, I’m giving away a few thank you prizes: a Tefal Soup & Co (valued at $299) which blends smoothies and soups at the touch of a button (you can see how to use such a thing here), and a Brilliant Best Trio beauty pack from Ere Perez (valued at $80.99). This offer isavailable to Australian residents only.

* Simply share this message with your friends on social media thus:

I’ve listed a few easy shares below if you want to just copy and paste or tweak with your own vibe (not that I want to tell you how to suck eggs…I’m just trying to make it easier for you)…

Anyway. Sorry, again. Thank you massively for your support in advance. And let’s bring on this sugar-free revolution!!!!

For anyone wanting to follow my US tour, I’ll be sharing on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and will do some pop up meet-ups around the place. If you’re in Seattle I’ll be at Taste Washington this weekend (I’m ringing the Pike Place market bell Saturday morning!) and doing a Q and A with Aran Garagoya from Canelle et Vanille at The Book Larder on Monday evening…you can get tickets here

Chat soon. I’m off…xx

    Facebook post done! I am an American who has been in New Zealand for the past year. In Februaary, I stumbled across your book in the library and pre-ordered an electronic copy when I had to return the book. I run ultramarathons and your book has helped me with my Low Carb High Fat experiment in my training. I will be updating my own blog with a post on my results so far and will include information about your book as well. http://trailbrat.wordpress.com/

  • Go get em, lovely x

  • mw

  • Magandmoo

    Preordered the Kindle edition. I hope it helps you.

  • Nerida

    Hi Sarah, Your lovely book is on my desk now arriving in the last few days. I love it. You have written it just for me. Thank you. I expect it will take off absolutely. Get Mary Shomon to review it and a mention on earthclinic would not go astray. Good luck.

  • Chloe Peters

    So great fellow Aussies are so passionate about health & food! Can’t think of a country more in need of your book, congrats & hopefully my fellow wellness warrior friends over there pick it up! Safe travels & Happy Friday!

  • Jane

    I live in Boulder, Colorado and couldn’t be more supportive of your message!!! I’ve followed your blog for a couple years now and LOVE what you are about. If you need help at all in the states…let me know 🙂 I am passionate about the same message.
    Keep living it. And I’ll buy the book right this evening!

  • Jane

    Bought it! Seriously. I’d love to be involved…Let’s get the world off of sugar 🙂

  • ordered! I have been waiting for this… super happy to see more of you in the US {and happy to not spend my time converting recipes!}. Excited to get my copy, and don’t hesitate to reach out to me if I can use my social media platforms in additional ways to spread the word to the US market. Best to you, Sarah! xo

    • Thx Darlene. That’s lovely of you. Where do you blog at? And your email?

      • You are welcome! I am scared about this journey to be 100% honest, but I know I need to do it. I blog at http://www.fieldstonehilldesign.com and I have an interiors and style blog where I encourage others to live with beauty, every day. My biz email: [email protected] Thx Sarah – would love to connect with you further! Safe travels to the States!

  • Lena

    Cool! I’m an Aussie living in Seattle, I’ve been following you for a couple of years now, I will have to check out where you are heading this weekend. There are so many good places to eat in Seattle, let me know if you need any good recommendations.

    • Thanks Lena…you should come to Book Larder event Monday night!

      • Lena

        Thanks, I will check it out. I’m not sure if you have been to Seattle before, but I think you will be happy to know I tell friends and family all the time back home that it is a city size version of Bryon Bay.

  • Slamdunka

    Tim Ferris has some great blog posts on how to “hack” the best seller lists. Check it here http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/

  • Done! Shared on my Facebook page, instagram and on twitter.

  • Yah! I’m excited about the new cookbook! I love referencing the digital editions, but it will be handy to have a print book on hand. Safe travels! I’m over in Bend, Oregon and think you would love the beautiful country out here. Have a fun trip!

  • Shana

    ordered! 🙂

  • Allison

    Hey Sarah, i totally support your goals to get us of sugar everywhere on the glob and would be happy to buy your new book. Just one question- I have your ebooks and I want to know what the difference is between those and your print book. (I’m sure you’ve explained in a blog post but I can’t seem to find it.) Thanks!

  • kallioped

    Bought it twice so I can give one away…good luck! safe travels

  • Caitlin Gooden

    Hi Sarah. I have just posted for my 14,500 Facebook fans on my business page. Quite a few of them are in the US so I hope this helps and good luck. I love both my books and I am finishing the 8wp tomorrow 🙂

  • KC

    I picked up your book in Tokyo on the way back to Calgary, are you doing a presentation in Calgary

    • it’s in Tokyo!?? Wow. Calgary – not at this stage, but I might do a blogger meet up in a cafe somewhere. Good suggestion for a cafe?

  • Disappointed

    I just had a huge fail with your paleo version of Anzac biscuits. I’m new to quinoa and there was no instruction but should I have cooked it first?

  • Heather

    Hi from a Seattle-base Aussie! I’ll be at your Book Larder event on Monday night and am trying to lure some American friends. In the event that they don’t join me, I’ll treat them to signed copies of iQS. And please do a pop-up meet-up. That would be so much fun!

  • Janelle Hatteroth
