One (Major) Step Closer To My First Book.

Well, I need to apologize, up front, about the shameless self promotional bent of this post. So, ….”Sorry”. But, In the midst of a really trying time, I wanted to share with you some really exciting news.  A few months ago I signed with the Author Management company  DC Jacobson & Associates.

DC Jacobson represents Christian Authors (like Francis Chan) who are looking to make a difference in the world and develop relationships with their Authors. Here is how they describe themselves on their home page:

D.C. Jacobson & Associates is an innovative author management company that provides comprehensive literary representation for Christian authors. By engaging in lasting relationships with our authors, we strive to produce books that renew the Church and redeem culture for Jesus Christ.

And, if you click on their link to their website, HERE, and then click on “Meet Our Authors” you will see my little Bio, but please come back and finish the post!

How cool is that? And, I have to say that my agent, Blair Jacobson, has done this in spades.  Over the last few months Blair and I have been talking about the unifying theme of my writing, AND he has been amazingly gracious in the midst of a “Crazy-Busy” season at Church.  Blair has been insightful, encouraging, challenging and a great person to just talk to.  Thanks Blair!

As I move forward there is NO-WAY I can do this this without you, my friends and family. So, I hope that as the process moves along you don’t mind that I give you the occasional update, prayer request and special favor.  If your not already a subscriber to the blog, please consider becoming an RSS or Email subscriber!

Thank You!
