Wanted to give you all a quick update on the progress of Megachurched. I'll keep this short, but if you want to read the more detailed (re:longer) update, you can check out the official site at http://megachurched.com/wordpress/
I relocated to Tucson, Arizona in December and have been writing like mad since I got here. Something about the mountains I guess. I'm happy to say that I completed a rough draft of the book; 10 chapters along with an intro. As the name implies the draft is a bit rough. There's lot of blank spots to fill in, some research to undertake and a few more visits I want to do while I'm out near the West Coast.
I crafted an agent query letter last week and I'm now working on my book proposal, which is a bit overwhelming due to the business/marketing aspect, but a great learning experience nonetheless. If anyone has any pointers, I would appreciate it.
So in conclusion:
Good news: First draft of book done
Bad news: Lot more work to go
No one will ever tell you that writing a book is easy, but nothing worth doing ever is. This has been an amazing experience and again I thank all of you so much for making this happen.
Sorry to be so pluggy, but I guess this is what you have to do...please check out the site at http://megachurched.com/wordpress/ It's still a bit rough, but this will be the main conduit for minor updates, thoughts, samples, etc. I'm working on putting up a signup form so you can get automatic updates (still trying to wrap my head around Wordpress)
Sorry, I meant this to be the shorter version
