Would those of you who knew her, interacted with her, and/or appreciated how she addressed matters of biblical egalitarianism be interested in reading it?
And, if you would be interested in helping the publisher’s editors get the word about Suzanne McCarthy’s book out to the right readers, then would you please email me? jkgayle at gmail dot com.

    Thanks for your interest.

    Suzanne McCarthy wrote her book while bravely engaged in a two-year battle with breast cancer. Her daughter was very much in mind as she composed the work. Her husband, whom she met just before falling ill, gives testimony to her writing process; she passed away before writing the introduction, and so he’s done a wonderful job of writing it for her, for us.

    Suzanne McCarthy’s sister is also actively involved in getting the book published. She’s working with the editors of the publishing house now and as they seek to be sure to tag all the specific readerships it will be marketed to. This is why this post today. If you think you might help and write me, I’ll send you the publisher’s specific questions.


    Thanks for your interest.

    And much appreciation to you for sharing this more widely to those who will find Suzanne McCarthy’s book useful.

    Additional details will be forthcoming.

    I would love to read it. I have no influence in terms of getting it to “the right readers”, but as an educated layperson I would certainly buy it, and promote it among my friends and acquaintances.

    Thank you, Dana. You and all you share the book with are exactly its readership. Suzanne sure appreciated hearing from you, and she noted when you helped her see things as you did after reading this post of hers.
