I just send in the manuscript of the book to my contact at Patheos, in hopes of getting it published under Patheos’ imprint. So happy about this. I really believe in what I’ve done with this book. For the time being, the drafts remain available in Google Docs.
Book #2 is basically done, but I’m going to try to write a better introduction and one thing that might be really helpful to people is explaining what’s happened with the atheist movement in the last 10 or so years.
