Yes, I'm still alive

I'm working on a new sci-fi fantasy novel. Really excited about this one. Sorry for skipping a year of posting. Life kinda got in the . . . you know.

I've been working lately in a donut shop. With three kids under four, I have to go somewhere.

Limited time Kindle offer on my novel After the Cross

My publisher, Ellechor, has lowered the Kindle price on my novel, After the Cross.

Check out the deal HERE.

After the Cross has been compared to the Da Vinci Code, and to the Indiana Jones movies. Here's the teaser from the back cover:

Two linguists follow a trail of clues described in an 800-year old letter which purports to reveal the final resting place of Jesus’ cross, only to find themselves battling against time, hired mercenaries, and each other.
        They soon discover that the most important struggle of their lives is not around them, but from within, testing their beliefs, their ethics, and their growing love for one another.

 If you want to support my writing, buy the book. And if you buy it, I'd love to hear from you. Well, I'd love to hear from you anyway, but even more so if you've read my work.

New Christian fantasy artist Caleb Havertape

I had the privilege of meeting Caleb Havertape at a convention in Central California. His booth had a breath taking array of art work, and I think all fantasy art aficionados should be aware of his excellent work. From epic biblical scenes to mythological fantasy, Havertape's style is fresh and authentic.

This is the kind of artist I'd love to have do my next book cover. Or maybe just buy an extra large print and put it on my living room wall. (I actually tried wife is "Considering it..."

Wisdom for Christian artists from Brian Godawa

In this short interview conducted as part of the Kings College Distinguished Visitor Series, there is a real treat for artists of every stripe. Wise advice and insight into what it takes to be a serious Christian artist. Give this short 6 minute clip a watch and see for yourself.

Brian Gadawa is an author, Hollywood screenwriter and director. He wrote the screenplay for To End All Wars and is the author of two books Hollywood Worldviews and Word Pictures. He also directed the short horror film Cruel Logic.

I am currently reading his book, "Word Pictures," so look for a forthcoming review  of that.

Residential Aliens, an online magazine with a speculative bent

Residential Aliens, also known as ResAliens, is an ezine specializing in a broad range of spiritually infused speculative fiction. The ezine is headed up by Lyn Perry. I've had the privledge of being published by this ezine (my short story can be found HERE).

 Not only does Resaliens put out a continual stream of sci-fi and fantasy short stories on their ezine, but they also have anthologies for purchase (pictured to the left is While the Morning Stars Sing). I happen to think that's a really nice cover.

There are a great deal of speculative fiction magazines and ezines, but there are a relative few that are friendly to a Christian worldview. ResAliens is one of these.

As Editor Lyn Perry explains:

I also embrace literature from a spiritual perspective. Combining spec fic and spirituality, and wanting to contribute to faith-informed genre fiction, ResAliens Press offers fans of science fiction, fantasy, and spiritual & supernatural thriller a quality venue in which to share their passion.

My hope is that both online and in print you will find engaging fiction that is truthful to the human experience yet touches on things eternal.

If you haven't already, please check out some of the stories at ResAliens. And stop by some of these other excellent blogs talking about this excellent ezine.
