For those of you who may have missed it—STREET DISCIPLES came out on Tuesday. I am very excited to have a second book for Christ out after waiting so long to put it out. You can get your copy at Amazon.com, BN.com, or follow the purchase links on this site.
Also, I am attending the Take Over Conference—The Mountain Top Experience at The River of Life Church in Asheville. Tonight’s guest pastor/speaker will be Dr. Cindy Trimm. My wife, Allyson (www.allysonmdeese.com) and I will be signing our books at the event. Doors open at 6pm.
And finally, I’ve been working on a set of Christian Romance novels for a while. And originally, I had a publishing deal lined up for the books—however that fell through and as usual, I will be publishing these books as well. I’m excited to be able to show what Christian relationships are supposed to look like. And if you’ve read my secular works—much less my Isaiah David Paul novels, you know I’m not scared to show Christ’s love anywhere.
Yesterday, I took the question to Facebook and Twitter asking industry professionals and readers what I should do as far the name I should publish the books under. The original publisher requested a pseudonym so that I could build a new audience. I understand that thought and agreed with it—had the name picked out and was getting ready to purchase the dot com. Yet, my wife and our literary circle had pushed for me to keep the books published as Isaiah David Paul. I asked you guys and almost 99% of you said overwhelmingly to keep the books published as Isaiah David Paul. So, per your request, I am happy to announce that my first romance novel, DON’T WANNA BE A PLAYA, the first book in my Worship Warriors Series, will be out February 2013. I thank y’all for your continued support and input in this important decision.
That’s all I have for you for now. BROKEN BUT I’M HEALED is being edited and will be ready for it’s September 25, 2012 release. I’m currently finishing STOMP, FOOT SOLDIER & DON’T WANNA BE A PLAYA for their late 2012/early 2013 releases. And I haven’t forgotten about the teen books either. 2013/2014 for those.
Thank you for your support.
