A Few Hints About My Next Book…

Here are a few hints about my next book.

  1. It is already written. In fact, I am in the final stages of editing it.
  2. It is already under contract with a publisher — a new publisher for me.
  3. It was inspired by a class I taught earlier this year.
  4. It is much, much shorter than my last book (which is how I was able to write it so quickly!)
  5. It is sufficiently different enough from my last book that I think it will reach a much different audience — but I think people who like one book will like the other.
  6. It explores the spirituality of a particular children’s book.
  7. The title is based on a different children’s book than the one I’ve written about.
  8. The cover design is gorgeous (I promise I’ll post it to this blog soon).
  9. If all goes well, it will be published before the end of the year.
  10. There is a specific reason why the publisher and I want it to be released so soon.

Okay, enough hints for now. I promise I’ll reveal the title (and cover design) soon!
