Rewrite for the End Product—a Book
Burr! I moved to the desert for the warmth, but this has been a colder than normal winter here in the Mojave. At this moment I am cold! Hmm. My writing juices are cold too. “Lord, spark my imagination into a flame of warm flow!” Guess I will have to work on a rewrite, but that takes inspiration as well.
In that regard, the last couple of weeks I have been working on the rewrite of a story titled The Dragon Horn War—about a third of the way through. It will be a while before it is ready for publication. The process is rewrite, edit, rewrite, proof…evaluate!
On the other hand, The Jewel is in the proofing process. That story should become a published book within a few months. Once the proofing is done I will give you a peek at it… “Through a Looking Glass.”
My Non-Fiction Books
I am also working on a couple of non-fiction works. The God Question, dealing with the question of God’s existence—in response to Dawkins’ The God Delusion—is available as a short e-book at Amazon, but I am revising, updating, and expanding the work to be published in paperback as well—within the next few months.
The second non-fiction book is UNVEILING JOHN’S VISIONS: A Study of Revelation for the Average Believer. The latter is a clear-sighted, “intelligible” look at the book of Revelation. The first draft of the forty-three chapters and three appendices is done. Next is the editing process, followed by another rewrite, followed by proofing, etc. Still, I hope to have it published sometime this year. Give me your feedback, especially on the subtitle.
My Fiction Books
My eleven works of fiction available in paperback as well as e-book format are interwoven with some basic themes. Acceptable Fruit illustrates the fruit of the Spirit. Son of Cain explores the brokenness of man and the wonder of God’s grace. Word of Honor affirms God’s sovereignty. Wanzalara’s Cottage deals with abuse and how God works good in the midst of the bad. Then there is Once Upon a knight, Tales of a Church Mouse, Phantom Island Chronicles, The Droll Child, Imagine Christmas, The Helot, and Dark Danger.
The Helot and Dark Danger are the first two books in the Accidental Heroes series, fantasy stories featuring the miffit Tor, that deal with selfless service, faith, temptation, and more. They are fun stories every young adult would enjoy and do well to read. Again, the themes are a natural part of the story, nothing truncated. If you enjoyed The Hobbit, you would likely enjoy The Helot and Dark Danger. Terminus, the third book in the series should be out by the end of the year. We’ll see how it goes.
