WestBow Press, the strategic self-publishing division of the world’s largest Christian publisher, Thomas Nelson, Inc., today released a video interview with newly minted Thomas Nelson fiction writer William Sirls. The interview chronicles Sirls’ personal and spiritual journey through a stage in his life fraught with conflict and self-reflection when his first book, under working title “The Reason,” was conceived.

In the interview, Sirls recounts the events that inspired, and eventually led him to begin writing his first book in 2004. Along this path, Sirls encountered some very serious and very personal problems that provided a spiritual focus for both his life and his book. He also discusses why he decided to self-publish, why he chose WestBow Press, and the events that led to a multi-book contract with Thomas Nelson.

William Sirls’ novel, under the working title, “The Reason,” will be available in the summer 2012 from Thomas Nelson Publishing.
