It’s been awhile since I’ve said anything about my next book. Time for an update.
The book’s primary theme is: Intelligent Provocation.
What does this mean? These days, discourse is heavily polarized. We rarely see or hear intelligent arguments. Many of our popular voices are not thoughtful about how they express their thoughts.
The goal of the book is to take on big questions, provocative ones, in a thoughtful but challenging way. Much of the book will be heavily revised essays and posts I’ve already published, with 1/3rd or more of new material written to make the entire project work well as single great read.
Since I plan to write many books in my life, I need this one to be self-published. I’m sure in the future I’ll want to write books publishers will be afraid of, and I can only do that if I do it myself. I need to start somewhere, and this book is a great place to start.
Weeks ago I hired an editor, Krista Stevens, and recently I hired Tim Kordik to join the project as the book designer (and yes, he’s being paid). We are officially on a roll. We have a complete outline, some draft sections finished – things are well on their way. The current plan is for the book to be out late spring of this year.
I’m working on ways to involve you readers in the process. So stay tuned!
