A Fond Farewell to Jacob (at least for now)…


Yesterday, I got word from my publisher that they are taking my book, “Jacob: Journaling the Journey” out of print due to low sales.

I just wanted to say thanks to those of you who bought a copy or wrote a review. As you know, all of my author royalties from book sales go to the International Mission Board to take the gospel to an unreached people group in the Middle East. So, my Bedouins thank you, too. (You can still donate to the designated fund for this UPG if you like. Just click on the Unreached People Group tab at the top of this page and follow the directions.)

I’m not sure at this point whether or not I will try to place “Jacob” with another publisher, or self-publish it, or look into other options. The publication process can be long and arduous. As for my blog and social media, everything will remain the same except that my book won’t be available for purchase.

Thanks again to all of you for your loyal readership and friendship on social media. I may not know all of you personally, but you are still an encouragement and a blessing to me, as I hope to be to you.

  1. I’m sorry to hear this Michelle. Writing is tough in any case and solid Christian books are even tougher, except for the few well knowns. God sees your faithfulness and it will accomplish all that He has for it.

    Don’t be disheartened (if you were a little 🙂 )
