Just got an email from one of the publishers that has a sample of my book. Here’s what he said:

“I thought I’d let you know that our editorial group is reviewing the book concept this week. We will meet to discuss it next Wednesday. That means six editors are reviewing the material carefully. 

Jason, as I’ve read through the samples and your blog entries, I find myself thinking of Jacob wrestling with God. It’s a powerful, cathartic experience somewhere between outright rebellion and the rawest worship. Question everything, everything is at stake. I think it will find an audience out there! I’ll give you our group’s feedback next week.

Senior Developmental and Acquisitions Editor”

Good stuff! I love his description, “somewhere between outright rebellion and the rawest worship.” Great way to put it.

I am excited, but also a little nerve-racked. Including him, it has to get past 7 editors. Yikes!
