Yeah, I know, lots of good book/publishing-related news around here lately. I’m sorry if that makes the other writers among my blog-readers a little sick of me … I promise I could balance it by telling you all my horrific tales of literary woe over the past two years, except they might involve some libel, slander and bitterness. So let’s just say I’m happy to have a few things to celebrate this year, and I promise to be happy and celebrate with YOU when good things happen to you, too!
Anyway, while I wait for By the Rivers of Brooklyn to come out, I have another new release. It’s actually a re-write of my 2003 Biblical novel Esther: A Story of Courage, but this one is substantially shorter and re-written for 10-15 year-old readers. Its release this year is timed to coincide with this summer’s Pathfinder Camporee in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the theme of which is “Courage to Stand.”
I’m going to give away five copies, and I’d like to give them to folks who will be able to promote the book among the age group it’s intended for. So if you’re a Christian parent or teacher, a church youth or junior teen leader, or Pathfinder leader, I would love to give you a copy of my book and if you like it, please talk it up among the kids you know and work with. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, let me know with whom you’d like to share the book, and I’ll get a copy to you.
