The general update on me is that I’m holding steady. No particular news to report, and I’m still keeping up the torrent of punditry at Patheos.
But look . . I accidentally went and got published again! Here’s the scoop:
Now out from CatholicMom.com: As Morning Breaks, Daily Gospel Reflections. It’s available as a Kindle book (very affordable – $2.99), but FYI if you want to get this as a gift for someone, it’s not necessary to own a dedicated device in order to read it. Any PC, tablet, whatever, can read Kindle books, just download the free software from Amazon.
What’s in the book? A reflection on the daily Gospel reading for every day of 2015. This is from the team at CatholicMom.com, so if you’ve been reading those Gospel reflections online, it’s that. You can preview the first month, which lets you get a taste of each contributor’s style and the kinds of ideas that will be coming your way each day. If you just want to see my name in print, scroll down to the 16th.
Why is this book better than a bake sale? Because you can support a good cause without your kids whining over who got the bigger brownie. All the proceeds from the sale of the book go to help underwrite the cost of keeping CatholicMom.com up and running. FYI if you weren’t aware, CatholicMom.com is basically the largest womens’ mag in the faithfully Catholic world, brought to you free everyday thanks to the contributions of dozens upon dozens of volunteers who give their time and labor to make it happen.
It’s the place where aspiring Catholic writers are incubated, and it’s the place where established Catholic writers who get paid for everything else they publish still turn up to contribute their work pro bono.
It’s a good cause, and you get more than your money’s worth for what you buy. Check it out.
