Self-published book on Jesus

The Sun Herald | 07/31/2005 | Self-published book on Jesus takes off
In two years, David Gregory Smith's self-published book about a cynical, overworked man who dines with Jesus gained a loyal following. And it caught the attention of WaterBrook Press, the evangelical religious publishing division of Random House, which released the book on July 12.

"Dinner With a Perfect Stranger," as much a gospel lesson as a fictional narrative, seems to have stuck a chord with readers, said Smith, a Plano, Texas, resident who wrote the book under the pen name David Gregory.
Interesting, huh? Not that every self-published book will end up like this because that clearly is not the case.
