Update: Night of the Living Dead Christians

Several of you have asked for updates about how my second book is coming.  Well, it's written and is sitting on the desks of a bunch of editors at Tyndale right now.  They're debating who gets the painful chore of being my primary editor.  As they learned last time, my editor is likely to get panicked phone calls in the middle of the night where I shout, "WHO STOLE MY PUDDING?"  because of the fact that I talk in my sleep and keep my editors on speed dial.

It's your typical Christian literature, complete with zombies, vampires, mole men and werewolves, all bent on eating brains, sucking blood, digging holes and running over rooftops while being silhoetted against a full moon.

The basic theme of the book explores why Christians claim to have abundant, overflowing life, but so often live a disgusting half life, neither alive nor dead.  And of course the best way to explore this theme is through a comedy novel involving monsters. 

The book should come out in time for Halloween, 2011.  In the meantime, you can always buy another copy of Imaginary Jesus, or listen to the audio book (read by yours truly).
