God has called me to write a book communicating his message of love and hope to people who are wounded and hurting worldwide.


I'm looking for donors who would like to be part of this outreach and ministry.


Target Audience

My book, "The Prodigal's Wilderness: When the 'Wrong' Path Really Is the Right Path,"  is intended to benefit anyone who finds himself in a "spiritual wilderness" - which could be the result of any number of disruptive life changes - such as a health crisis, death of a loved one, job loss, wayward child, etc.

Some changes are easy to deal with, but others - called "disruptive changes" tend to turn our lives upside down and lead us into a "spiritual wilderness".

When this happens, we tend to feel anxious, depressed, angry - even overwhelmed. 

Do you know people who are in the midst of a spiritual wilderness right now?  People who would benefit from hearing about God's love, encouragement, and plans for a better future. 

If so, please help me reach out to them with God's message of love and hope.

My book has had quite a development history, starting with a paper I wrote in seminary about 25 years ago and culminating with God's recent call to turn that original college paper into a published book. 

Publishing a book is a significant milestone - and I am thrilled to have it published! 

But without aggressive marketing, this book will not reach the people who need to hear God's message of hope and encouragement during the difficult times in their lives.


Previous Free Marketing Promotions

The book was published in December 2018 and I have been doing free marketing since then. 

The free marketing has produced some short-term, temporary spikes; however, free marketing is not generating the necessary activity to get God's message distributed far and wide.

The Amazon free promotions that I've done have enabled my book to reach #1 ranking in four different Amazon free categories - but that ranking was very temporary and conducting those free promotions is very manually intensive.

I'm a retired senior citizen on a fixed income, so I don't have the funds required to conduct the needed paid marketing, and I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which saps my energy and makes the manual effort difficult.


How the Funds Will Be Used

The funds are needed right away. 

They will be used to conduct a variety of paid advertising and marketing activities, such as Amazon AMS ads, Facebook and/or Google ads and other book promotion activities.

In addition, the funds will be used for a variety of training, coaching and/or tools to support the marketing efforts.

I have been told that if I were to hire a publicity firm, they would charge approximately $3000 - $4000 / month - for a minimum three-month contract. 





What My Readers Say

I've used the book with my Bible Study group and received very positive feedback.  Group members (and other readers) have been very complimentary about how much they've learned from the book.

·      “Interesting, and encouraging,”

·      “Overall The Prodigal’s Wilderness is a stellar read that can enrich, benefit, and change many peoples lives so I, of course, have to award this dazzling book five stars! If you are a reader who is looking to explore such topics, then I would recommend this gem of a book… you won’t regret it!”

·      “A wonderful work, very insightful – much of it content I studied in 2 years of Scripture in seminary,”

·      “Well researched and thoughtfully presented from an interpretive point of view with highlights of psychological and theological discussions.” 

·      “When the wrong path is really the right path" is a mantra the author encourages the reader to embrace while persevering, waiting, and staying the course with faith that God will appear in the dark or empty landscape of our despair.”

·      "Chapter 6 is blowing me away in your book especially page 79 and 81...to a whole new level ...parallels, analogies, leading to a deeper understanding of His true message of transformation."

·      “Offers all of us hope for the journey”

·      "Brings deeper and more meaningful spiritual understanding to the greatest parable of Jesus."

·      “An enjoyable read; this book is for everyone!”


Thank You for Your Support!

Your support would mean a great deal to me, as it would allow me to realize the vision that God has given me to change the world one person at a time and help to heal the hurting people around the country and the world.

All donations - regardless of size - are greatly appreciated! God can easily multiply the "loaves and fishes" to accomplish his purposes.

I have come to realize that when God calls us to a task, he also provides the wherewithal to accomplish the task.  But, often, accomplishing the task requires the help of many people - it is seldom a solo activity.

I thank you in advance for any support you can provide to this project - and for the additional people that I will be able to reach with God's message of love and encouragement!
