OSV author Sherry Weddell
Sherry Weddell has followed up her bestselling book Forming Intentional Disciples with a new offering: Fruitful Discipleship: Living the Mission of Jesus in the Church and the World. In her new book, Sherry shares what she and her team have learned from helping over 100,000 Catholics around the world, examining different charisms, sharing guidance for discerning and exercising the gifts received in baptism, and encouraging readers with true stories from all kinds of parishes.
Sherry spoke with podcast host Jon Loenetti recently about Fruitful Discipleship. You can listen in here or just click below.
Sherry’s author platform includes the Catherine of Siena Institute and web site. She’s a popular speaker who travels internationally. She also hosts the Facebook group Intentional Disciples. View her author page on the OSV web site here.
Podcasts (What is a podcast?) are exploding in popularity and Catholic podcasts are no different. Player FM, a popular client for listening, has a good list to try. Find it here. Podcasts can be a nice addition to your author platform — whether you jump into the medium on your own, or are a guest on one. (Here’s a quick podcast how-to.) Many of these podcasts are by radio hosts that are on the OSV news release and Twitter lists and are recordings of their shows, and they often contact our marketing department for guest information, which we’ll then coordinate with you.
Don’t hesitate to directly contact a host about your book if you’d like them to consider you as a guest. A short, “Hi, this is Chris Smith and I have a new book out with OSV about *your topic*” email — or even a tweet — should be enough.
If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us, as always.
