(Update: I don’t need any more reviewers for Christmas 2013!)
My new book will be released on November 25, but I’d like to get review copies to bloggers, journalists, or anyone else who might be able to give the book a good word.
A Modern Christmas Carol is an homage to the Dickens classic in which a modern televangelist gets the Scrooge treatment. He’s visited first by his long-dead partner, and then three ghostly guides. During his journey, he’s forced to question his faith and witness the impact of his uncompromising message on viewers. Back home on Christmas Day, he makes amends with far-reaching consequences.
Many Christians and atheists might enjoy seeing a televangelist get his comeuppance, but the book is more than that. There is a challenge here that will attract thoughtful readers who enjoyed the intellectual workout of books such as C. S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity or Richard Dawkins’ The God Delusion.It’s a novella like the original, so it’s a quick read. Though it’s not quite Christmas season, I wanted to give any reviewers time to read it.
Are you interested in Christianity’s role in society or in the debate between Christians and atheists? Would you be able to read the book and write a review? Is so, I want to mail you a free copy. I’m hoping to get any reviews published around Thanksgiving. Short blurbs (in which I could acknowledge and link to your blog or book) would also be very welcome.
If you’re not able to publish a review, I’d appreciate your passing this link along to someone who could. Can you think of anyone with a blog, a newspaper column, or similar standing who might be interested? The offer of a free review copy extends to them as well.
