After I wrote Torn, everyone kept asking me whether I’d write another book. My honest answer for a long time was “I don’t know.” I don’t believe in writing a book just to say you’ve written a book. With Torn, I said things that I’d been wanting to say for many years, things I believed needed to be said in a way no one else was saying them. I vowed that I wouldn’t write any more books unless I had something else to say that was so big and so important that it couldn’t be said properly in any other format.
Well, something like that did come along. But even then, it took me a year and a half to figure out how to best tackle the subject matter. I prayed and worked over a bunch of ideas for many long months. Then one day, it clicked. Everything fell into place, and I suddenly couldn’t keep myself from writing.
I’m not yet ready to say publicly what this new book is about, but—at the risk of overhyping it—I can tell you that I think this could be the most important book I ever write. It’s very different from Torn, but it comes from the same heart, and I really hope you’ll like it.
The new book is still being written, but it’s enough of the way along that I thought it was time to formally announce it. So there it is. I’m really excited, and I can’t wait to share it with you.
