Writing books is a long laborious activity. But I really do like it. Admitantly, I’m no Hemingway, but there’s something about creating images with words, and sharing stories life has been gracious enough to throw in my way.
This new book is really one that is starting some interesting conversations. I’ve heard from a lot of people who are interested in opening their own lives up, confessing some of the fears controlling them, and then trying to find answers where they can reach out and care about others.
I’ve been on several radio shows this last week talking about how fear has become the easy answer, and it takes a lot more thought to defeat our fear at the threshold of our hearts. And this is just the beginning.
Writing the book is only step 1. The next step for me is to engage with readers. So if you’d like to join me, I’ve got a few outlets where we can engage together.
Facebook has become such a vital part of conversations today, so I’ve created a Facebook page for the Book. Partly it’s to give people a place to see the book on social media, but I’d like to turn that place into a conversation about fear. Feel free to post articles on fear, or just share your fears, and we can talk openly about how we can look at fear in our world and overcome it.
2. Skype book clubs
I just posted a little teaser last week, that if you would get 10 books for your book club, you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org, and let’s schedule a time where I can skype into your book club for an hour conversation. I’d love to connect with you and hear your thoughts, and maybe I can explain some parts of the book that are a little more difficult to understand.
3. Book Tour
We are working on a book tour here at the home office that will start in the fall. If you’re interested in hosting a “No Fear” Evening in your home, your group, or your town, I’ll be hitting the road this fall. We’d love to come to your town, so contact us at email@example.com and we’ll be sure to let you know when we’re in your neighborhood.
I’m excited to share No Fear with you, and I hope you can share it with your friends.
I believe we all have interest in figuring our what compells us to do what we do, and hopefully live a life beyond fear.
If you’d like to get a copy of the book, you can order on my website http://www.andybranerbooks.com for an autographed copy, or you can get it online at your favorite bookseller.
