Sorry to keep you waiting, but I had a side project to work on related to my church for a few months. But I am completed focused on the book again. Well, besides my full-time job. To whet your appetite, I'll tell you my working title. I am calling it My First 10,000 Years in Heaven.

I have just started my last read-through before sending Three Prayers of Jacob off to my beta-readers.

12Jun18

I am about 50% with my first read-through of Three Prayers for Jacob. There are a few other phases after that, but it is getting close to being done.

This book will have a wider target audience than any of my previous books. I am curious what effect that will have.

26Apr18

I am about 40,000 words into Three Prayers for Jacob. I am pretty happy with it so far. I think it will help many people trust God through difficult circumstances.

This book should help you trust God more fully during those times when you have no answers as to the WHY of it all.

I've received the comments for Bonfire from all my reviewers and have already updated the spots they said needed a little polishing. They all said they thought this was the best book in the series. I should have the book in your hands by the end of January.

14Jan18

I have started my next book and am two chapters in. The only tie it has to any of my previous books is that I came up with the idea for this book after thinking about the implications of the Bonfire ending.

The working title is Three Prayers of Jacob..

I'll tease you with knowing that the premise of the book is based on God not being bound by time as we are.

28Nov17

Bonfire is in the hands of my beta-readers. I hope to release by the end of January.
