More book developments

Posted by Jeffrey Pinyan at 12:27 AM

It's been a busy week of sales for Praying the Mass: The Prayers of the People.  The book is already on Amazon.com, where it has sold 32 copies.  Including the order of 50 books from the Basilica Shrine book store in DC, my book has sold 122 copies (with an additional 22 copies given away).  I've already recouped everything I've spent preparing and promoting the book.

This evening, I sold several copies on "z-chat," the ustream.tv channel where people who follow Fr. John Zuhlsdorf's blog What Does the Prayer Really Say? hang out.  I also sold a copy to Dave Lozinger, a Catholic from eastern Pennsylvania who is working to bring Catholic radio to the Allentown-Bethlehem area.  Dave would like to interview me for a podcast for his blog Hearing God's Call.  Dave will be meeting with Bishop Barres (of Allentown) next Friday for an interview, and he'll be asking (among other things) about how the Bishop plans to implement the new translations!  I will also be in the Allentown next weekend, planning to meet with a local parish pastor, a local retired bishop, and possibly Bishop Barres as well!

Thank you for supporting me by purchasing this book.  You've also supported WFJS (my local Catholic radio station) and the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations.  This month alone (really in a matter of only about ta week) both of these charities have been awarded over $60.  Please consider buying the book directly through me (through the PayPal "Buy Now" button) to maximize the donation to these two deserving charities!
