I Need Your Help (but you knew that already)

FRIENDS, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears! I need your help to get this "serious book" published. Could you please go to The Theology of the Body, Extended website below and "like" it? Then (this one is big), would you be willing to send me an email at tobextended at gmail dot com saying you'd like to be contacted when the book is available for purchase?

Part of this is letting people know and participate in research I have been doing for many months now. That part is exciting! But indeed, part
of it is to show publishers that there are indeed people interested in buying it. I know many have said they are, and giving me your email for an interest list is NO obligation (I promise not to harass you, truly). But I need something to show publishers this weekend.

I humbly suggest you may not be a Theology of the Body devotee and yet you may be interested in this. It's a complementary but somewhat different take, focusing more on the meaning of what it is to being human as well as the spirituality of the audiences.

Reece's Rainbow and SN adoption friends, you may be interested in ch 3, all about God's calling and impairment. People who liked the America article on a spirituality of childbirth, ch 2 is deeper thoughts on that reality. Anyone who has witnessed a friend/family member dying? Ch 4 is for you. An outline of the book and more about it in general are at stand alone pages on the website. The website has clips and I will be adding more in the next few days.  If you're interested, you can add the website to your blogroll or an RSS feed, and do join in on the conversation.

I appreciate comments on facebook. But for publishers, who like to break even as well as get good books out there, I need an email list, and I need the facebook or Google+ "likes" on the website itself.

Thanks so much, everyone. Please, please feel free to spread the word! I am hoping for an email list of 200 by this weekend. Yikes.  Bl. John Paul II, pray for us!

"Susan, it would be easier if you just delivered this book as a bunch of audiences."
