An update on "Through a Screen Darkly"

The book is finished!

Proofreading is done.

The front and back cover are complete.

I’m told that printed copies do, at long last, exist.

You’ll be seeing them soon if you’ve ordered some copies (one for you, one for each of your movie-loving friends, so you can talk it over, of course).

What a long, strange trip it’s been. I’ve learned a great deal. And now, we’re shifting from the busy-ness of writing the book to the busy-ness of talking about it… in print, on the radio, online, and beyond.

This Friday, I’ll be appearing on WordFM in Pittsburgh.

Next month, I’ll be speaking at several events, including the Northwest Christian Writers Association, and at a special book release party in La Conner, Washington.

In April, I’ll be addressing the Seattle chapter of the G.K. Chesterton Society about faith and film.

I’m also blogging a bit about the book and moviegoing over at the Amazon blog. This week, I’m inviting you to share your list of favorite films from 2006, as well as your favorite (and least favorite) sequels of all time. Come over and share your experiences!

Here’s are some questions for you:

Do you have a favorite radio program, where you’d like to hear me talk about Through a Screen Darkly?

If so, email me at joverstreet [at] gmail [dot] com, and tell me the name of the station, the program, and the DJ (if you have that information). I’m currently charting out a calendar of radio interviews, so I can share with listeners who haven’t yet discovered or Through a Screen Darkly.

Also, if you can think of a magazine that might be interested in reviewing the book, or publishing an excerpt, or printing an interview, now is the time to tell me about it. We’re in a flurry of activity setting these things up.

What an adventure.
