I appreciate the love you guys have given all of my titles—since I write (and don’t hide) the fact that I write in multiple genres, I need to clearly define what my literary mission is.
As I stated when I started the Isaiah David Paul movement in 2010—my passion and first love is the expansion of Christian fiction on all fronts. I’m not talking traditional church dramedies that highlight sin. I’m thinking showing Christians falling in love, Christians fearless in faith in the face of danger, Christians overcoming difficult circumstances and praising God anyway no matter what happens. I want to highlight those who come to Christ from a nontraditional route. My background in street-lit/urban fiction; adult romance and erotica and young adult fiction gives me an arsenal to pull character experiences from and allows for me to go out in the world and create disciples.
I want anyone, regardless of what genre they read, to pick up a Christian-themed book and experience God where they are at. I don’t want people to feel like they aren’t saved unless they are in someone’s church. They need to experience God now.
Isaiah David Paul has been the priority brand for the last few years and that has not and won’t change in the foreseeable future. Remember, what I do for Christ will last. I have outlines that will last me a couple of years if I should run out of ideas, LOL.
My new release, CLOSING MY LEGS will have a final release date of August 12, 2014. I know this is another push back, but I have to take care of my family. I have a few members that are not well and need the care that I and other immediate members of our family can give. The book is done, my wife and other editors are reading it now. They are pleased—but sometimes, we have to wait.
The Asheville Literary Reunion, which I’m hosting with Allyson M. Deese, will be November 1 and I may have a surprise (or two) ready by then. For more information about the event, which will be free for readers, please go to the website, www.ashevilleliteraryreunion.com.
And with the editing, ghostwriting, bookselling and other literary commitments, your boy is busy. I thank you for loving me, praying for me and most importantly, supporting me so that I can continue to reinvest in entrepreneurs who have a common mission.
In Unity for Christ,
Isaiah David Paul
