    Done–thanks for the opportunity to give you feedback. I only had one iffy answer–on your question about writing books, you didn't include the step of being in the process of writing a book. I, for one, want to finish my book before I write my proposal and look for an agent and a publisher. So, my book is beyond an idea, but not yet a proposal. That's why I checked both the idea and the proposal answers–I'm between the two. :-)

      You are the second person to mention this, Patricia. I will have to remember to change it for next year. Thanks.

    I'm a "lurker" but have really enjoyed reading your blog the last few months since it was recommended to me by my father.

    And I filled out the survey!

    Question 4 needs an "Other" option. I am involved in church but none of your choices seemed like a good fit for me. Thanks for the tim and effort you put into your work. I appreciate it!

    My answer to the last question, if I'd had the option, would have been, "Yes"; I have thought about writing a book. At one time, I had come up with 8 or 10 chapter titles, a working book title, and spent 10 minutes with an independent agent and another 10 minutes with a publisher, both at a writer's workshop. The editor loved the idea, my chapter titles and proposed first chapter; the publisher liked it, but he had just contracted to publish a very similar book written by a university professor, so he couldn't help me. He also pointed out that my intended audience was most unlikely to read it, even if a parent, favorite aunt or uncle, or anyone else gave it to them. The professor had an advantage, in that she could require her students to read it.
    Since then, I've had no other book ideas or inclination.

    Thanks for your concern and interest in keeping up with your readers. It shows you care.
    I’m an author (SANCTION, by Tate Publishing) with another ready (EVIL FOR EIVL) and one at 3/4 (COP). As you know, the market is tough, but try, try again. Just sent a copy of SANCTION today to Davis Bunn because I appreciated his work so much.
    Blessings,

    Thanks for the reader survey. Have really enjoyed your blog and it's part of my daily routine.

    There wasn't a category for me on your survey so I thought I'd leave a comment that you can put in an "anomaly" section… I don't work at a church, but I work for a Christian nonprofit. Also, I'm not involved in a youth ministry at a church but I'm involved in a youth ministry para-church outreach (young life).

    Hopefully that helps you more than confuses your categories.

    I don't recall if this was on the survey (since I took it a couple days ago) but it might be interesting sometime to run a survey on how your readers engage with / consume books. Could go hand in hand with another post you and Joel have by showing (unscientifically) what % of respondents still prefer regular books and how they are using other formats (audio, ebook, etc) as well. Be interesting to see trends if people are saying these other formats are replacing their choice of bound books or just adding to the options of consumption thus expanding the works ability to be read.

    I'm biased. I still prefer a bound book although I like the ability to have the flexibility to have the content in all formats IF I choose. Sometimes I read a book and then listen to it on audio or vice versus, etc.
