The other day when kids were coming around for Halloween in our little town of Lake Dallas, Texas, I saw our former assistant preacher. It was so good to see her—it had been almost a year. She had received a new assignment last June and now preached about 50 miles away. After our hug, I asked, “How are you doing? How’s your new church?”
What makes a book interesting to buyers intrigues me. Last week I went to two book-signings for new authors—one was Nadia Bolz-Weber, my daughter’s 6’1”, tattooed, delightful preacher from Denver on a national book tour, and the other was my sister, Coleen Buckmaster, with “virgin arms” as Nadia would say, on an Oklahoma book tour.
