Asking for help is hard -- though I think as I get older, it's getting easier (4 kids will do that for you!). But here's the thing: I need YOUR help getting my book, Finding Holy in the Suburbs, out into the world.
Gone are the days where authors sent off their manuscript to a publisher and it magically appeared on bookshelves. Now there's 8 million books on Amazon and every new book is out there with every other book in the universe. But most of all, I need your help to get Finding Holy in the Suburbs out into the world because i desperately believe we need it.
Finding Holy in the Suburbs is a book that says places form our loves in ways we might not even realize. I believe that we’re all searching to belong; we’re searching for the “good life,” and all places give us answers to those questions. The question for those of us in the suburbs is if we’re living what our places says is “good” or if we’re living what the kingdom of God says is good.
I'm inviting my readers to join me in launching my book into the world by joining the Launch Team!
You don't have to be an author, pastor, or someone with a large social media following. You just need to want to share the message of Finding Holy in the Suburbs with others. And, did I mention there will be prizes? Do you like free books and prizes? Who doesn't? The Launch Team will be fun and feel like a party.

The Next Step

Now is also a fabulous time to pre-order the book. You'll have one for you coming from my publisher and then you'll have one to give away. Pre-orders help distributors know to stock the book so they don't run out on launch day. And, when you pre-order Finding Holy in the Suburbs, we'll have some special things for you too.
Hurry! Space is limited! The application will close in just a few days on September 9! We'll kick things off in our Facebook group on September 10!
I cannot wait to get Finding Holy in the Suburbs into your hands. I can't wait to chat about how the book is changing you or your neighborhood. I'm giddy to see the book in your pictures and talk together about how God is a Father who runs to meet his wayward children -- even in the suburbs.
