I haven’t read as many books lately as I have been busy preparing for my trip. I did skim through, “Publicize Your Book! : an insider’s guide to getting your book the attention it deserves” by Jacqueline Deval (Berkley, 2003), which is one of many books recommended by conference speakers. From my brief perusal it seems to contain some good ideas for marketing books.

I’ve continued reading the devotional “Every Day With Jesus” by Selwyn Hughes and I found his comments for tomorrow very interesting. “Be careful that you throw yourself only into those things that God wants you to be involved in. Don’t take up everything that comes along. I (Selwyn) was struck by this verse in Deuteronomy: ‘Be careful not to sacrifice your burnt offerings anywhere you please. Offer them only at the place the Lord will choose’ (Deuteronomy 12:13) … Get guidance from God, know your call and continue in it.”
