TouchPoint Press to release memoir, described as "a story of first faith and first love and how the two became almost fatally intertwined," by feature film producer and award-winning screenwriter Sean Paul Murphy July 2014
Indie publisher TouchPoint Press announced its recent acquisition of Sean Paul Murphy's memoir, an inspirational, coming-of-age tale of first faith and first love and how the two became almost fatally intertwined in his life, which promises to be both an entertaining read and encouraging tool for readers around the globe.
The Promise, or the Pros and Cons of Talking with God is a poignant and insightful meditation on surviving in the gray area between God's sovereignty and our individual free will. While Sean wrote this book with the Christian reader in mind, the audience for the book is definitely not limited to born-again Christians. It was written in casual, easy-to-understand, non-theological style to make it accessible to spiritual seekers of all varieties. Human beings naturally seek to find the transcendent and eternal. This book reveals it is possible.
"Unless you're a big name celebrity or other well-known personality, selling your memoir is more than just difficult; it's often impossible. After all, everyone has a story to tell, don't they? When we received Sean's pitch, we weren't certain it would be one we'd pursue—even with his clear accomplishments in the film/movie industry. But a few pages in and I was hooked." Publisher, Sheri Williams adds, "Sean's author voice is crisp and inviting. It's like having a conversation with a close friend and sharing the struggles and revelations he's encountered. And, best of all, he's down-right entertaining!"
The Promise, or the Pros and Cons of Talking with God will be released in July 2014.
