My first monograph, The Shepherd of Hermas as Scriptura Non Grata: From Popularity in Early Christianity to Exclusion from the New Testament Canon, has recently been published by Lexington Books, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield.

The book can also be found on Amazon or, presumably, wherever quality books are sold.
