One of the scariest part of the writer’s life is proposing books. When I first finally mustered up the courage to send out a proposal for Awaiting a Savior, I was more than a little overwhelmed by the whole experience. The book sat with multiple publishers, most of whom rejected it, before Cruciform Press kindle picked it up and made it the moderately profitable book it is today.
But there have been many (many!) other book ideas that have come up since then. At present I’m hoping to see at least one come to light, but only time (and the Lord’s sovereign hand) will tell. But there are others. Some have the potential to earn tens of dollars, some are purely entertaining for me, and others would probably be best left in a folder called “don’t ever, ever try to write these.”
Which is which? You tell me:
Idea #1: Contentment and the Art of Ministry-Mobile Maintenance
What my franken-car taught me about contentment and humility in the face of strange noises and all-too-frequent repair bills.
Idea #2: How to Win Friends and Pants People
Become an influencer in the wrong crowd with this surefire self-help bestseller.
Idea #3: Your Average Life… Now!
While every day might be a Friday for some people, the rest of us have a case of the Mondays. Own your okayness as you learn that you don’t have to have it all, that a “meh” day isn’t a sign of unfaithfulness and sometimes “success” just means getting your pants on right the first time.
Idea #4: Discipline (Is) For Dummies
Join my children and me on a journey of discovery as we seek to learn about “consequences”.
Idea #5: The Prophets’ Diet
More prophets than Daniel have something to say about your eating habits. With advice from the likes of Ezekiel, Elijah and John the Baptist, this is guaranteed to be the last Christian diet book you’ll ever (want to) read!
