One day at a joint prayer meeting, Jane asked a pastor, the co-founder of an organization of marriage & family, who was copying some content of Healing the Hurt in your Marriage Chinese edition if he wanted to buy the book with a 20% discount. He didn’t answer. Perhaps he was hoping to receive a compliment copy.

Two weeks ago someone with a big smile told Jane, “Books that Lifting Hands Network publish are really great. I lent them out to people all the time.”
Jane immediately replied: “Please don’t lend people the books anymore.”
He stared back in amazement and asked, “Why not? Isn’t it a good thing that more people read the books?”
Jane answered: “Of course! But please recommend people to buy our books or maybe you can buy more books and give them as gifts!”

Like the pastor who was copying some key points from the book, he might think that it’s a waste of money to purchase a book. The list price of the book is $10.32 or $8.26 for pastors. If the book would help him in his specialty, isn’t that worth $8.26?

Usually it takes 18 to 24 months to publish a book. The breakeven point is 3,000 copies. But currently the sales of most titles are often less than 1,000 copies. That means when we publish one book, we might be losing $10,000!

Some of our donators stopped giving to us due to the current economic recession. Last week we received the sales report for the first half of the year from our Christian distributors. The sales have dropped 58%. The income from the sales is not even enough to pay for the printing cost of the 1st edition (1000 copies) of Healing the Hurt in your Marriage. Why has the sales been so low? I hope that this letter has helped you to better understand the problem. Even though there has been such positive feedback and praise for the books, it seems people are opting to copy main points or loan the books to others.

Being called is from the Lord which involves sacrifice. We are committed to serving Him with all our heart and soul and mind and heart. Our path might not be an easy one, but we rejoice that God has His favor upon us. Please support us. If you think our books are valuable, please buy a copy. If you know of someone who would benefit from one of our books, please buy a book as a gift. Of course, keep recommending our books to those at your church.
