Encounters With JesusHi all,

I wanted to take a couple minutes and say thank you to all my blog friends who have been so supportive with my new endeavor as an author and to give you an update on my progress. I'm learning first hand that which I have heard over and over again. Once you publish a book, the work on your project has just begun. It probably more true (are there levels of truth?) for self published authors, because if anyone is going to promote your book, it's going to be you.

As to progress--well--there is progress, slow but steady. Since I self-published this volume, if I want it on book store shelves, I have to go to private books stores, and negotiate with each store owner personally. I have managed to get into a couple brick and mortar stores here in northern New Jersey. I am working on putting together a book signing some time in the mid to late summer in Iselen NJ at Jesus Book and Gifts.

All that said, I have a couple favors to ask of you, my friends, my blogging community of faith.

I've you have read 'Encounters With Jesus' it would be a huge favor to me, if you would head over to Amazon and rate it and review it. There are some places that won't even consider offering your book if it does not have a certain number of reviews, and some even require a certain number of 5 star reviews.

If you've ever ordered anything from Amazon, you can review anything on the site, even though you didn't buy it there.

Many who have read 'Encounters' have come back looking for more copies to give to friends and family. I am able to offer discounts for those who would like to purchase more than 4 at a time. For information email me directly-- Ben@AnotherRedLetterDay.com.

If you haven't gotten your copy yet--well--what are you waiting for?

Pick up the paper back here: Paperback

Or get a kindle edition here: Kindle

Or for a real deal - you can buy the paperback and get the kindle for just $.99 here: Paperback & Kindle Combo

Once again, for quantities over 4 book, shoot me an email: Ben@AnotherRedLetterDay.com

If you have no idea what I'm talking about you better hop over and find out here: Encounters With Jesus

It's here - it's finally here!

I'm so excited to announce the release of my new book:

Encounters With Jesus.

Encounters With Jesus - Available Now
Encounters With Jesus - Available Now

This book was birthed right here at Another Red Letter Day. My interaction with this wonderful community of faith has encouraged me to write, and keep writing. So I want to say a huge thank you to all of you.

It is available in both Kindle and paperback editions.

I'm hoping that you'll share it with your friends.

If you have not been following my blog, let me bring you up to speed.

Encounters is a collection of forty stories from the life of Jesus. What is striking about these stories is the way they look through the eyes of the people He touched.

What would it have been like to be on the boat when Jesus calmed the sea?
How would it feel to see your son raised from the dead?
How would you react if Jesus asked you to sell all that you have?
Can you imagine standing at the foot of the cross?

I walk through the life of Jesus from before His conception to His resurrection speaking in dozens of voices.

To those of you who have shared life with me the last few years as a blogger, I hope you will join me in praying that this simple approach to the life of Jesus will draw men and women to Him. Will you pray with me for the impact of this book?

If you’re on the fence, here are some reviews and such:

I'm just one short week away from the release of my new book

Encounters With Jesus

Encounters With Jesus Full Cover

The current plan is to have the kindle version will be available for purchase NEXT MONDAY!!

I can't tell you how excited I am about the book's release.

Here is an excerpt from one of the stories...

Crumbs for a Dog

---

He spoke again.

“It’s not right to take bread out of children’s mouths and throw it to dogs.”

If anyone else had said that to me, it would have hurt. Another slap in the face. But coming from Him, I knew I had no right, no entitlement, to special treatment. And yet there was compassion in the air, drawing me in, bidding me come and ask again.

“You’re right, Master, but beggar dogs do get scraps from the master’s table.”

All was silent for a moment, and then He laughed. He wasn’t mocking me. It was more like my words found their way through a crack in a wall. Not a wall of His making or mine, but a wall that separated us nonetheless. My humility mingled with His compassion dissolved the boundary that seconds ago stood as a roadblock to my salvation.

His laughter was infectious. Soon I was laughing, too, as were all the men who stood with Him.

“Oh, woman, your faith is something else. What you want is what you get!”

There was a glee in His voice, a delight, as though granting my deepest need gave Him His deepest joy.

Thanks for poking your head in

See you again soon
