The book has been selling well and is still building up in sales and reputation, as Rachel says; "After an initial flurry of sales when the book was first published in 2010 and again after we spoke to a 200-strong audience at Greenbelt festival in 2011, the book has been selling slowly but steadily" They did get good reviews in the church press but "...even better was receiving letters and emails from readers, and requests to come and speak at groups. We have been attending speaking engagements regularly since the book was published. We’ve heard from people who were encouraged to go back to church after reading Living It Out, and others who felt less isolated after hearing that other people shared their experiences." The important thing for Rachel and Sarah is making sure people know the actual experiences and emotions many Gay Christians go through, whether the audience are non Christians or Conservative-minded Christians. More importantly, as they say, it is "...The opportunity to show, through the stories that we share in the book, that not all Christians are anti-gay – and not all gay people are anti-Christian!"
And as with all good books there is the question as to whether they will write another one "We are always coming up with ideas, but none of them has reached fruition yet – we’ll keep you posted…."
