Shack News

We just found out that Sunday The Shack will debut this Sunday as #1 on the New York Times Best Seller List for Trade Fiction. They hadn’t even been tracking this book until our new publishing partners made them aware of it. So we could have been on it far sooner. Who would have thought that this little book would go so far from its debut 13 months ago on this blog and The God Journey podcast?

Also Jay Leno held up a copy of the book on Friday night’s TONIGHT show. You can see that clip here. (Choose May 23 and look about 11:30 minutes into the show.) It’s done as a humorous look at things on Amazon.com, but it is amazing exposure.

We also received this picture today of a Shack display at a bookstore in Canada. It just gets weirder and weirder….

    Who would have thought that the cover art that you asked our opinion of (God Journey) so long ago would end up as an art craft? I am tickled to say the least!!

    I just noticed the Jake Book and He Loves Me in that display also. Since The Shack was released I have referred to the three of them as a powerful trifecta.

    Yeah, no matter what Leno’s purpose was, the book is now mainstream! Unfortunately, NBC doesn’t allow access to its clips to computers operating outside the US. So all those “outtakes” of The Office and 30 Rock that you see advertised only yield the message, “This clip is not available from your location.” I’d be interested in knowing if anyone in the U.K. can get it to work.
