A Book Launch Recap

It's been a little over a month since the release of The Doctor and the Apostle, and I've been doing a lot to call people's attention to it.

I generally love the process of launching a book, but it can also be exhausting. I'm feeling a bit spent after so much. Thankfully, this time around there seems to have been a lot more word of mouth involved, so I've had the benefit of other people's excitement. I'm thankful for that.

Anyway. Here's a recap of where we've been:

The book cover reveal - You know, in case you haven't seen it.

The announcement post - Complete with overview, a list of who'd be interested, and endorsements.

Frequently Asked Questions - Answers to common questions that potential readers may have about the book.

The virtual book reading - I read from the book on my Facebook page. The recording is there in case you missed it.

The Church is Not a Building - A book excerpt on the portability of the church.

And here we are at the end. It's been a good month, and I'm thankful for all the support and enthusiasm that I've received surrounding it. 

As I said during the book reading, this book was both a labor of love and fandom and a reclamation project. I had a lot of fun watching and researching the show, as I got to binge my way through lots of episodes I hadn't seen yet. And I also enjoyed delving into the life of Paul and recapturing a side of him that is more open and progressive than some may like or realize.

I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

To keep paying it forward, please consider leaving a quick review on places like Amazon and Goodreads. It would really help boost the book's signal so that others can find it.

I say this often, and I'll keep saying it: thank you so much for reading. I'm in awe that I've been able to do this for a fourth time. I'm glad that my words have found resonance with others. It's been a wonderful writing journey so far, and I'm grateful to have had so many companions on the way.
