I've been a delinquent blogger. I know. I've got my reasons: a major summer writing project.
A few years ago, I wrote "Ten Service Plans for Contemporary Worship," an educational and practical tool for folks who plan worship each week. It was a modest effort on my part, but its success was beyond anything I could have imagined. It was a best-selling smash. It sold out its first printing (all 50 copies, I think), and if the Amazon.com numbers are any indication, it is still riding the nation-wide wave of worship wonk enthusiasm -- (rank: 1,944,420 in Books).
Well, given the price the publisher charges for it, and their capital investment to get it written, it only made sense to come up with a sequel. Just like printin' money. So they begged, I conceded, and now here I am, slaving away till silly-o-clock in the morning tweaking and polishing 10 more service plans.
Of course, we're now officially more than a week past our "drop dead" deadline. My guess is that the publisher may therefore skimp some on production expenses: the picture attached here is my best guess at what they'll do for cover art.
