I have been waiting for a long time to share some exciting news. I have completed my Bible-based novel about the life of the prophet Daniel. It has been publisher-edited and is currently in the creative design phase. The release is scheduled for March, 2021. Now for the first time in over four years of blogging, I’m going to ask for a big favor from you.
The novel’s full title is, Daniel: Prophet at the King’s Command. I began research and writing on this book about four years ago after being immersed for several months in teaching the Bible book of Daniel in my church. The extensive biblical and secular history research and writing took about three years (I had many other responsibilities and obligations going on during this period). Proposals to literary agents and publishers took a year until Ambassador International publishing house bravely took me on. Ambassador International is a Christian publishing company that releases about 50 books per year.
The novel is the story of the prophet’s miraculous life from innocent Hebrew boy to highest official for the king of pagan Babylonia. The gripping drama of competing loyalties and courage in adversity is intertwined with end-times prophecies impacting us today. It is also a study of leadership and endurance in troubled times like we are experiencing at present.
Several prominent authors have read the manuscript and have provided endorsements including this one:
“…A spellbinding story with many great lessons of courageous leadership. Every few years, a particular Bible-based novel commands the attention of the Christian world. This is it for this decade.
Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor, national television personality, New York Times Best-selling author
The joys and frustrations of writing a book are endless. If you have never written and published a book, you would be amazed at what is involved–the work, the thrills, and the disappointments. I invite you to peek inside the world of writing and publishing. I will show you how Daniel came alive on the pages of the manuscript, then what it took to get published. It will be fun and informative.
For the next four months, I will be emailing a monthly short newsletter (three minutes reading time) with highlights of what is going on leading up to publication in March. Then I will supplement that with weekly blog posts or videos taking no more than three minutes of your time. These posts will relay progress and events of the home-stretch toward the book’s release. That is three minutes once each week and another three minutes once each month. I promise to keep it interesting and amusing.
To accompany me on this journey and ensure you receive these emails and posts, please take two easy and quick subscription actions. Doing these two things will generate only one weekly email and one monthly email informing you of post or newsletter availability. Again, I promise you this is all you will receive from me. I will NOT stuff your inbox.
Subscribing to my monthly newsletter is free. Simply click “Home” above and scroll down to the “Join my email list” and add your email address, then click the button.
Secondly, if you haven’t already done so, please subscribe to my weekly blog or video posts by clicking “Home” above and adding your email to the sign up on the right-hand side bar, then click “Subscribe.” This will notify you when my weekly blog posts or videos are posted.
As an appreciation gift for subscribing, I will send you my intriguing short study, Body, Soul, and Spirit. This is an enlightening look at how the body, soul, and spirit interact every day of our lives to make us who we are. It is a summary of my personal research and study into this area. Christians too often take these three components of our humanity for granted. But the Bible gives us clear insight into our three distinct determiners of everything that happens minute-by-minute in our lives. Don’t miss this intriguing read that will change the way you think about how you were created.
Please don’t wait until later. Subscribe now to these two opportunities for a delightful journey. You can always opt out later. Also, would you please “like” and “share” this post on your social media or through your email by clicking the applicable button below? Every time you share is an opportunity for your friends to benefit from God’s work through the book and its accompanying processes.
Thank you so much for your assistance and support of this book project which I believe will make a difference in many people’s lives.
