Just wanted to alert blog readers that this week is a great time to buy Flunking Sainthood at a substantial discount. I've heard from some readers that you've scheduled the book for your church and book groups (thank you!), so you may be interested in the half-off promotion Paraclete is running this week. With the promotional price, you can get the book at 50% off, for $8.50.
You can also apply the discount to books by Wild Goose Festival speakers like Lauren Winner, Peter Rollins, and Carl McColman, a practitioner of contemplative prayer that I'm going to be quoting from tomorrow here on the blog.
I'd appreciate any help in spreading the word about this sale through Facebook shares, retweets, or owl post.
Also, as a heads up, in conjunction with the book's August theme of gratitude, we'll be hosting a month-long Gratitude Challenge at Paraclete and here on my blog throughout the month of August. Every day, readers will be encouraged to do the following:
1) Write down five things you're grateful for;
2) Express to at least one person, in writing or in a conversation, why you are grateful to have that person in your life; and
3) Review your "gratitude journal" so as to focus on positive developments and answers to prayer.
I hope you'll take the Gratitude Challenge with me! We'll have regular giveaways and focused discussions throughout August to help us through. Watch here for more information about the challenge and our new Facebook page. And bless you for your support of my writing.
