the blessing of a book

When a small group of us set out last spring to compile into a book the weekly devotions sent out by our church clergy, we had no idea how exciting it would be to hold the finished product in our hands these many months later. Our challenge was to take fantastic raw material and package it in a worthy container, one that would sell like proverbial pancakes today at the Christ Episcopal Church Bazaar, in The Good News Shop and online. Arkon designed the beautiful cover, which pays homage to a beloved tree in the church yard. I'm telling you, this self-publishing stuff is way cool! If you've ever had even a little tendril of a dream of creating your own book, it is well within reach of ordinary people like us these days. Which, to me, is quite extraordinary.
