Let's Talk

**UPDATE: Thanks to all who entered our Books4Life Mega Give-away. The winner will be announced here on March 2nd.** I figure it’s time for a little heart-to-heart talk between you and me. In late 2012, I self-published my third book, The Epic of God. In conjunction with the book launch, I also started my own publishing company, Start2Finish Books. If you’ll permit me to brag on God a little bit—he has done an amazing job of blessing this book. About 500 copies have sold in the first 7 weeks of its release (more than is average for a self-published book), and when the book sells well, it also helps get the Start2Finish Books name out there. In short, none of this would have happened were it not for the Lord’s blessing.

But while I’m thankful for this divine favor, I’m also thankful to you, my many friends, who have helped support the book and this new publishing enterprise. My mission with Start2Finish Books is to provide resources that help God’s people understand the Bible better and, consequently, become more like Jesus. That’s why I’ve made 2 Timothy 3:16-17 the theme verse for Start2Finish Books. “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

I don’t know what the future holds for Start2Finish Books—only God does. But in my prayers to the Lord, I am asking that he give me the strength and success necessary to be able to publish an entire series of books on the remaining 65 books of the Bible…essentially an “Epic of God” for Exodus, Psalms, Romans, and the others. So first things first: Would you join me in this prayer?

Second, I know that whatever success this book series will have will be because of you, my friends and early supporters of Start2Finish. Businesses and start-ups often do extravagant things to attract new customers. But I want to do something for those of you who are supporting me at the beginning of this endeavor.

On March 2nd (which just happens to be my birthday), there will be a drawing, the winner of which will receive a free copy of every book Start2Finish Books publishes. For life. That’s it. If I publish 10 more books, the winner gets one of each. If I publish 50, same deal. This isn’t transferable, but if I you plan on staying alive for another 20+ years, I think this is a good offer.

You can enter the drawing in several differnet ways, including social media (see below). The more ways you enter, the more likely you are to win! The deadline to enter is 11:59 pm on February 28th. Drawing will be held on March 2nd.

One more thing: win or lose, I will always be immensely grateful for your support of Start2Finish Books. May God bless you richly!
