It’s that time of year again, when church leaders the world over are fretting about what to do for Christmas. And when The Reflectionary comes up with a bundle of answers.
A lot of my resources end up in book form and you, lovely readers, have sent many of those books to the top of the Amazon charts. (I’m still astounded by that. Thank you so much.)
In case you have not heard, my latest book, So You’ve Finished Writing. Now What? is due out in paperback and Kindle on Nov 1st, from Amazon, Barnes & Noble etc, and your local bricks and mortar bookshop. If you do not see it on the shelves, poke the bookshop owner until they order it. To celebrate the release, I’m giving away a load of books! Waa Hoo!
“I can’t commend this book enough, particularly to those new to writing. I anticipated it would be merely factual and thus very dry. How wrong can one be? Wonderfully well researched, this comprehensive and detailed guide is full of humour, honest personal experiences and great metaphors, an invaluable reference companion that deserves a place on every writer’s desk.”
Howard Webber – Award-winning author
“This is a really encouraging and readable guide for those who are new to writing and publishing. It’s full of the honest wisdom of experience as well as expertise, and the light-hearted style makes it feel like welcome advice from a friend. There are questions to work through and a review of each of the main forms of publishing, while the fulsome glossary provides a really useful reference guide to key terms and ideas.”
Ally Barrett – Author and Chaplain , St Catharine’s College, Cambridge.
