The Bellowing of Cain Publication Costs

My name is Jeremy Gordon Grinnell. Years ago, I was a professor of theology at a seminary and pastor at a growing church…then I blew my life up, complete with criminal charges. I lost everything but my family. But we worked hard and put our lives back together. The deepest wounds for many people are the self-inflicted ones. They produce the greatest shame and the least compassion.

We need a book that helps people survive and rebuild after self-destructive choices. The Bellow of Cain could be that book.

But after being reviewed positively by several top literary agents, we’re told that no traditional publisher will touch it. The story and message are unique, powerful, raw, life-changing, but the author’s backstory is a publicity nightmare.

So we’re engaging the magic of hybrid publishing—professional editorial, design, marketing, distribution—but the cost in on our backs. We need help bringing this completed manuscript to market in 2022.

If you care about restorative justice, about second chances, about seeing broken people become productive members of society again, then help us. Gifts of any size are appreciated.

For more details about the book, budget and project scope, or to sign up to be part of the team, go to our website (website currently under construction).

Thank you.

Dr. Jeremy Gordon Grinnell
