100 Days to Brave Celebrates More Than 100,000 Units Sold

Nashville, Tenn., May 1, 2018 – Bestselling author and nationally known speaker, Annie F. Downs, has reached a milestone: 100 Days to Brave: Devotions for Unlocking Your Most Courageous Self, has sold more than 100,000 units.

The book released October 2017 and has become so popular that it is continuously flying off the shelves at these retailers: Amazon, Target, LifeWay, and Barnes & Noble stores.

“Annie comes alongside the reader as a friend and mentor, offering achievable steps to replace fears with courage.,” said Laura Minchew, senior vice president and publisher of Gift Books at Zondervan. “We are so happy to see the success of this book and the huge number of lives it has impacted.”

Downs wrote 100 Days to Brave as a reflection of her own journey to stop allowing fear to hold her back. With honesty and relatable humor, the compilation of best-of writings and new pieces from Annie has helped readers embrace the path and the plan God has for them.

“My life changed significantly when I stopped listening to fear and started to believe that I could be brave. I’ve seen it in other people, and I see it in myself, that amazing doors open (and all the right ones have closed) when I choose to take the courageous next step. It’s what I hope for all my friends and readers – that bravery would be their first option, not the last,” said Downs.
