My publisher Orbis Books sent my biography of Father Ed Dowling, SJ, Father Ed: The Story of Bill W.'s Spiritual Sponsor, to the printer last week, and I am thrilled to reveal its cover. The photo of Father Ed is courtesy of Alcoholics Anonymous's General Service Office Archives and has never before been reproduced. I love it because it shows Dowling's grace and humility while also giving a hint of the suffering he endured. As for the wonderful "Father Ed" logo, I'm in awe of how beautifully Orbis's art department created it from Dowling's own handwriting!

Father Ed is due in stores December 1 and is available for pre-order from (which has the best price), Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and "wherever fine books are sold." Also, I hope to tour every city, state, country, and continent promoting it, so please contact me if you would like me to speak where you live. My email address is at the bottom of my biography page.

More news soon, I promise! In the meantime, you can always keep up with me through my Twitter account @dawnofmercy.
