♦ Amazon Ranking, Updates, and Thanks♦

 You know the book rankings on Amazon.com? The ones you may or may not even know exist because you’re a normal, well-adjusted person with more important things to do with your time? Well, authors obsess over them, and being in the top 100 in your browsing categories is something to celebrate. And this past week (drum roll please…) Daniel and the Sun Sword was #66!

Also, I had a lot of fun talking with budding authors at the book signing at Red House Bookstore last weekend. Keep writing. Keep writing. Keep writing.

This tale’s a wild ride with spiritual warfare, monsters, demons, action, adventure, coming of age, orphans, adoption, abuse, and the kitchen sink. This is Raiders of the Lost Ark in Machu Picchu. It’s action/adventure way over the top—great fun.

♦ Live at Lunch ♦

Last week I had the opportunity to go on WTVY’s Live at Lunch segment to plug the book signing at Red House Bookstore on June 11th.

Writers usually prefer to be hidden behind a computer screen or bent over a notebook scrawling out ideas for their latest chapter, not up in front of people and definitely not on TV! But, I survived.

So, come on down to the book signing on June 11th from 11:00-1:00 at Red House Bookstore in Dothan.

Get a book.

Get it signed.

Find out how you can get published.

Bam.

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. It’s true! Last week, I was sent these pictures from a reader who did a book report on Daniel and the Sun Sword. She dressed up like Gator, Daniel’s obnoxious and barbaric adoptive sister.

I have it on good authority that she made a 103%. And rightly so. Well done!

♦ God Is in Those Moments ♦

It’s easy to read about scary, fearful, or intense things. Sometimes it’s actually entertaining. Some of us even prefer books that are frightening (Stephen King; Dean Koontz). Even if we’re not reading suspense or horror per se, the characters in almost all plots will experience fear and anxiety.

But why do we enjoy it? Heck, how many of us spend our days protecting ourselves and our families against accidents, pain, loss, failure, and death, only to then willingly immerse ourselves into a fictional plot via book or TV which contains those same things?

Rock of salvation

It’s because of what comes after. Resolution, peace, safety. If you think about it, that’s the truly entertaining part—the moment when salvation arrives, the tide turns, the hero shows up, and evil is thwarted. This resonates with all of us because, regardless of what we say we believe, on a cellular level, we are wired to expect God to work out all things.

Over the next few weeks, look for His hand to “turn the tide.”

Notice the stories playing out in front of you everyday, and don’t forget to

pay attention to the part where help arrives.

God is in those moments.
