It’s the official “book release day” for This Seat’s Saved! It’s nice having a single day to celebrate, even though nothing particularly special happens on this day. It just means it’s officially available for purchase.
I like thinking of book release day like book release month. June means people start to order the book, receive the book, and comment on the book. I love hearing what readers think. I’ll receive Facebook or Instagram messages, often with photos of children reading the book. I’ll receive emails and texts. The best part of writing books involves this interaction with readers. It completes the circuit: I write, you read.
I wrote Seated with Christ in 2015, and I still receive messages about the book’s impact. That’s eight years of special notes. I pray that This Seat’s Saved impacts young readers like this for years and years and years.
