It's Official.


It's official.

This week, WaterBrook/Random House reverted rights back to me for Generation Ex. It's a bittersweet experience. Since March when GE first went out of stock, I've been working with WaterBrook to either publish a small 3rd printing to support the promotions I was being asked to do, or revert rights. I hope that this feeling is the closest I come to experience divorce myself. I'm relieved that a decision has been made, but I wish it would have been different.

God's timing is ironic. The After Eve conference offered a significant boost to my confidence that God was not done using me or this message.

The good news is, I have an agent and a few interested publishers already.

As my agent and I begin the shopping process, I ask that you would remember this project in your prayers. I ask especially for direction and protection for all involved parties. I don't think it was an "accident" that I sustained such a serious injury just prior to Generation Ex releasing and I am humbly aware of how standing up for truth can make me a target of the Enemy.

Finally, I am updating my proposal and preparing materials for my agent. If you have a personal story or endorsement to offer, or any suggestions for how this book can be improved, I would love to hear from you or anyone else to whom you pass on this message.

Please email your thoughts and suggestions to generationexjen@aol.com.

Many thanks to you all.

Jen, I just happen to stumble upon your blog here. I wish you luck with the book and all that goes with that.
My sister recently adopted twin boys... such an awesome picture of Christ's love for us... I look forward to adopting someday myself after seeing that first hand...
thanks for your thoughts...

Eric, thanks for stopping by. I took a peek at your blog. A friend of mine was a missionary in Ethiopia for 18 months. Your girlfriend sounds like an amazing woman. She'll be home more quickly than you think!
