Book announcement

Many read Pyro and don't come here; I don't know whether any read here and don't go to Pyro.

But in case some do... or, er, don't, or whatever I mean.... there is an announcement about my book today, over at Pyro.

What a thrill! I didn't know you had TWO babies to publish! Can't wait!

Thanks, me neither!

(I had trouble with your link to Pyro. But since they're #2 on my "Most Visited" list, I easily found my way there to read the announcement. Just thought you'd like to iron out any wrinkles in your links.)

(I, too, over-use the parenthetical, by the way.)

The WORST AUTHOR IN PRINT in that regard is none other than Jay Adams. Great man in many ways, has served the church well — but oh, dear, what a study in the need for a good editor. He can have two and three parenthetical remarks — in the same sentence!

The funny thing is I said something about that over at Pyro once, and the editor of Adams' magazine saw it and invited me to submit a book review to them for publication. Which I did and they did. Said he showed my remarks to Adams.

No idea what came of it.

Wow! What a roller coaster! So glad that it all worked out!

Note: no parentheses, but a definite overuse of exclamation marks!!!

What wonderful news!

Help me, though, because I didn't read through the 200+ comments from May 2009. What is the topic of this book? Or is that still secret?

This is a banner Dan-year. A grandbaby and two book babies!

May God bless them all.

Working title is The World-Tilting Gospel. It is an unfolding of the Gospel in the context of a whole-Bible worldview, showing the impact it has on our lives.

My husband had a college professor refer to his writing as though he just took a handful of commas and threw them at the page. I on the other hand have been told I'm too wordy (by my own Dad). Unfortunately that's not the case lately on my blog. (sigh) But I have every intention of getting back in the habit...

Ah, good news, indeed!
