The book in now on its way to the capable of hands of editors who will be switching my crossed “i”s and dotted “t”s around. From this point on we are on a good pace for my target release date right around the first of the year.
After writing it (and reading it) I stepped away form my working title and given the project a new name:
Why did I write the book?
Other than the overwhelming compulsion to write stuff (see also this entire blog), I kept seeing the need for specific conversations to happen. My hope is that the book will give perspective for those who see others struggling with any number of things, and give words to those who are struggling but may not be able to find the words for themselves.
(There is also a hope and prayer that it will have some financial impact on my sustainability while I pursue a master’s degree in counseling psychology.)
We are current working on photos for publicity material, original cover art (very excited about this) and other publication details.
I’m also lining up details for conferences and other promotional opportunities, including speaking in churches, corporations, schools, etc. If you would like more information about that or have any ideas, shoot me an email at email@example.com.
You may have noticed that I have created a separate page just for the book. If you would like share the project with someone, (anyone, everyone) you can give them this link: http://sophiasojourn.com/shattering-masks-my-book/
Your contributions will help cover the publishing and promotional costs, and I’m offering a few gifts in exchange for your participation:
$15 – A signed copy of the book, shipped (or hand delivered when possible) to you!
$30 – A signed copy of the book AND the satisfaction of providing 2 copies in my inventory to share with pastors, counselors, school administrators and hurting families.
$100 – all of the above, plus a three panel frame with 5×7 prints of the original “It’s a new day…” inspirational memes. Great for the office or study! (I’ll email you a list with the 10 images and you can pick your 3 favorites)
Connoisseur of Written Arts
$500 – all of the above plus a framed, numbered and signed copy of the original artwork that is being created for the cover! It will be astounding.
When you make your contribution, I will get your email address from Go-fund-me. I will reach out to you to get your shipping information. I will ship the books as soon as they are available (even if it’s before the official release date!).
