Announcement: My 2012 Book Tour

The number one question I’ve been asked over the past two weeks is, “Are you going to do a book tour?”

The short answer is no. The long answer is that very few authors go on actual traveling book tours now. It’s cost prohibitive, and the power of the internet makes them somewhat unnecessary.

Included in that long answer is that, yes, I did go on tour. In fact, my “tour” is still ongoing. Over the past few weeks I’ve written posts and have been interviewed on lots of my favorite blogs (read those at the bottom of this post).

There’s a myth in the book publishing world, that if you write a book, your work is done. While this may apply to a select few, most authors have to work hard to get their message out into the world even after the book has hit shelves and online retail screens.

So I’ve been hard at work trying to support a message I believe my generation, and many others, need to hear. It’s a message God slowly worked out in me over the past year and now I’m excited to challenge and encourage many others.

Where You Come In

But you can still play a role in this book tour of mine. If you have a blog/podcast/website or some sort of online presence, I’d love to connect to talk about the book. Whether it be an interview or something related to the book/holiness, let’s make it happen.

All you need to do is click here to send an email to me. Make sure to include “book tour” in the subject line so I don’t miss it. Also, be sure to explain how you want to partner with this message of holiness in Why Holiness Matters.

You can take a look at the Why Holiness Matters book tour as it exists thus far, below:

In the meantime, I want to reward those of you who have read this far down the post and are apart of this community of readers.

I’ll give away one copy of my book Why Holiness Matters to a random person who comments about which post on the “book tour” was their favorite.

Thanks for supporting my writing and this book!
