Well, friends, the time has finally come.
On January 6, 2021, my first book, Tracking Desire: A Memoir(ish) Walk Through Faith, Failure, and Finding God Under My Feet will be officially released into the world.
I am utterly astounded by this moment, rendered speechless at the fruition of a decades’-long dream, and in light of that speechlessness, I will not spend many words here.
I want to let you know our plans leading to launch day.
My dearest wife and co-conspirator, Mikala (aka Smaug the Terrible), came up with a fantastic idea for preparing everyone to celebrate the day: that we should double down on the “church calendar” element of the project and use the traditional “Twelve Days of Christmas” as a springboard to launch. This means that the book will officially drop on January 6, also known as the Twelfth Day of Christmas, and more important to this, as Epiphany, or the day of unveilings.
Beginning Christmas Day, Friday, December 25, and leading to the book’s unveiling on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, we will be filling the days with opportunities to interact with, learn about, and eventually, pre-order the book.
There will be interviews with family, friends, and writing colleagues and a podcast appearance. There will be revealings of art and readings from passages, and ultimately, there will be way too many entreaties for you to actually buy the damned thing.
So, be on the lookout starting Christmas Day for more!
