Scenic Blog Tour, Newsletter, Sex Challenge & Book Giveaway

Scenic Blog Tour

Oftentimes, when an author puts out a book, she launches a blog tour. It’s typically a whirlwind of interviews, guest posts, and reviews all revolving around the release date.

Book cover for Sex SavvyInstead, since the release of my book in November 2013, I’ve been taking a scenic blog tour for Sex Savvy: A Lovemaking Guide for Christian Wives. A stop here, a stop there. A slow meandering through blogs I enjoy and recommend. I thought I’d pause and let you know where I and the book have been — in case you missed any of our appearances.

Generous Wife gave a lovely review of Sex Savvy

Intimacy in Marriage featured my book in a post on 5 Ways to Sexually Please Your Husband

Sheila Gregoire chose Sex Savvy for her Top 10 Book to Read in 2014 to Boost Your Marriage

Journey to Surrender suggested four books in Give Your Marriage the Gift of Sex, including my book

Sex Savvy was listed in One Flesh Marriage’s 2013 Wife’s Gift Guide to Knock Your Hubby’s Socks Off

Warrior Wives did a review and giveaway of the book in Are You Sex Savvy? and I guest posted on the site with Staying Intimately Connected While You’re Apart

Stu Gray of Stupendous Marriage podcast interviewed me in Hot, Holy & Humorous – An Interview

I also have guest spots coming up on Marriage Life Ministries, One Flesh Marriage, To Love Honor & Vacuum, and Unveiled Wife. And maybe a few more. I’ll let my readers know!

Blog & Newsletter Subscriptions

You may have noticed a difference in the way posts are coming to you! (They say “MailChimp” at the bottom, don’t they?) I awarded myself the trophy of Most Bungled Blog Move — because when I moved from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress, I managed to mess up the feed enough that over 500 followers were just poof! gone. My web administrator has helped me change the way feeds go out, so that I hopefully have everyone here again. (Hello! I missed you!)

But in February, I’m also launching a monthly newsletter! What will be in the newsletter? In addition to a rehash of my blog posts and recommended reads on other blogs, there will be a Scripture of the Month to encourage your marriage; a book recommendation — which could be nonfiction or fiction, but marriage-positive; a Sex Position of the Month; a Behind the Blog feature, with a glimpse at my blogging life; and more. I hope that you will be blessed by this new offering.

Sex Challenge

In TWO DAYS, One Flesh Marriage begins its annual 10 Day Challenge. Brad & Kate Aldrich challenge married couples to have sex consecutively for 10 days beginning February 5 through February 14. Why should you sign up? Check out the video from Brad and Kate:

If you’re not sure you can do all 10 days, just give it a shot anyway. I often find that even if I don’t meet my goal, by setting a goal and working toward it, I make more progress than I would otherwise. And if you do make it, good for you! 

Make sure you follow Brad & Kate’s posts during those 10 days for encouragement and giveaways. Your marriage will be blessed!

    Am excited for the 10-challenge (my husband will be thrilled!) am also thankful that my friend turned me on (no pun intended, honest!) to your site/blog as I am the typical wife who doesnt initiate and my husband at 53 has the sexual appetite as an 18 year old but with patience, thankfully.

  8. Lisa

    I enjoy your blog, and so does my husband. (even if he doesn’t know it! 🙂 I’m sure that we would both also enjoy a copy of your book. Thank you for the chance to win one!

    With a four years old in the house, being 4 months pregnant, and my husband’s occupation truck driving, this 10 day challenge will be a challenge. I think it will be a worthwhile challenge though!

  11. Katrina´s husband

  12. Cherl

  13. Beth

    I would love to win….wanting to knock my husband’s sox off and neither of us has had a job for 2 years so purchase is out. God bless you.

  14. TLC1984

    I recently (in last 6 months) had discovered that my husband had been watching porn and masturbating from it. After seeing a counselor for several months and reading many articles on http://www.themarriagebed.com and your site my husband and I are on a great path of recovery and of new sexual awareness of each others needs, wants, and desires. I have been able to let go of so many of the old inhibitions that my mother passed down to me. It is so freeing to understand that God intended for BOTH the husband and the WIFE to enjoy sex within their marriage. My husband and I have had the most amazing sex and have blessed each other more in the last month then in our entire almost 30 year marriage. We have had sex more in the last 2 months then we have in the last 5 years combined! Thank you for having the courage to talk openly about this subject.

    Hi J, I started to read your blog as a single -I’m all the way in Nigeria- and its been very instructive.

    I’ve only been married a couple of months so count me in on trying the 10-day challenge.

    Would absolutely love to get your book to. It would definitely make my day.

    Thanks and take care!

  16. Lisa

    Thanks for the book offer! And I’ll also take the time to say ‘thank you’ for your tireless work here on the blog. My sex life has been positively affected in so many ways. The “know how” is giving me confidence that I’m not doing something wrong and the constant encouragement that this is good and right in a Christian marriage and that a drive is healthy have helped my desire 10-fold. Sex has been our glue over the last six months while we go through a tough time. So THANK YOU!

  17. Trisha Turner

    Would love to win your book. This couldn’t have come at a better time! Thanks for all you do!

  18. Jen loves John

    We are looking forward to the 10 day challenge! We facilitate marriage enrichment classes/Bible study at our church and would LOVE to win a copy of your new book to help minister to other couples…and we love to read GREAT marriage books for our relationship, too! It would be a great blessing to win! 🙂

  19. Kim Wilder

    Can’t wait to start the 10 day challenge with my Hubby! What a great buildup to Valentine’s Day!

  20. Michelle

    My hubby and I completed a 21 day challenge (every day) before and it really strengthened our connection! I’m glad that it’s getting planted as an idea in people’s minds

  21. NjB

    I just enthusiastically recommended your blog to a friend this week. I’m always so appreciative of your advice and encouragement. Ah! I love it! Thanks for your dedication to this blog and all its readers(:

  22. Juliet

    Hi J,

    I have only been following your blog since September when I started worrying about sex with my future husband, whom I married mid-December. I started looking up tips and how toos on sex and became a very frightened almost disgusted virgin. I wanted nothing to do with sex because some of the things out there in the virtual world are so un-Godly. So I changed my wording on the search engine and met you (well at least that’s how I feel). I have read many of your fellow bloggers and have also learned a lot from them, but whole heartily feel that it has been you that has guided me into this new world to me. And I have to thank you, had I not read all your post before marriage, I think I would be a very emotional wreck right now. We where unable to have the big wedding night that everyone plans because I was too nervous, but with the help of your blog and the comments that I have read on here I didn’t feel like a faliure or that I had started my married life on the wrong foot. I love my husband very much and he is the sweetest most understanding and loving men I have ever met but lovemaking for me right know hurts. And I very much want to please the man I love and who has been so understanding with me, and would love a free copy of your book (I think right now I need all the help I can get.) I have been wanting a copy of your book since it came out but unforutaly at this moment and time I can not give myself and my husband this gift ( the last few months had a lot of surprise medical problems, but we are working their them and enjoying this challenge as a team).
    Anyway I just wanted to profusely thank you for your blog and all the great help you been to me and my husband ( sorry for rambling on so much but I feel like I know you and can tell you anything.

    Hugs and kisses!!!! 🙂

  23. MissJ

    We are in on the challenge and I would love to win a copy of your very interesting sounding book! Thanks for the opportunity! 🙂

  24. Nate's wife

    I would love to win a copy of your book! Your blog has helped spice up our marriage and helped me relax with my husband and enjoy the gift of sex that God gave us to share with each other.

  25. Marisa

    Glad you got the blog all figured out – phew! That can panic you like nothing LOL! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  26. Mama R

    I’m totally signing up for the newsletter. I really enjoy the blog and learn something regularly. I’d love a print edition with a signature!

  27. Mary

    Years ago like 30 years ago I would of been over whelmed to even suggest we do this. Today(like the last 3 years or so) I’ve never counted what our longest stretch has been but I know it’s more then 10 days! Why the change in our sex life?Finally talking about our basically failed sex lives. Reasons. Shame guilt for thinking about sex before I met my husband and because I would often masturbate to release the anticipation and then fealing really dirty about having a very high need for sex. The man I married had done the same things and we robbed each other because of satans accusations. I’m not going to lie sex is more then we anticipated.
