SHOW NOTES

As you know, most people know me for my historical fiction. So why supernatural suspense? Why BEHOLD?

Honestly? The idea came to me and wouldn’t let me go. Besides, it was fun.

BEHOLD is an exhilarating mix of time travel adventure, end times drama, historical fiction, and fantasy!

Where did the idea for BEHOLD originate? Basically from three story ideas I’ve wanted to write about for a long time —

A time travel story. This is probably why I write historical fiction. If I can’t travel back in time physically, I might as well do it in my mind.

A story that emphasizes our spiritual nature. A quote from French Philosopher and Jesuit Priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is exactly what I hope to say in the novel:

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but spiritual beings having a human experience.

An end times novel. Having taught the book of Revelation, having translated it, having studied it, I always wanted to write a story based on at least a portion of it. For this novel, I chose the first four chapters featuring the Seven Candlesticks of Revelation.

The point that I most want to make about end times is that no matter how you interpret the Book of Revelation, no matter what your view is of the end times, no one knows how the future is going to unfold. God has always surprised us. And I believe the end times will contain the biggest surprises of all.

Even if you don’t own a Kindle, you can get a copy and read it on Amazon or by downloading a FREE Amazon Reader for your computer, tablet, or phone.

AND THIS IS WHERE I ASK IF YOU CAN HELP ME OUT . . . 

Two ways:

  • Help me introduce my stories to people who haven’t read any of my books. If you could pass the word along to five friends – by email, Twitter, Facebook, phone, maybe even in person – I would greatly appreciate it.
  • And if you could do one more favor? Go to Amazon and post a review. It doesn’t have to be much, just a few sentences. As an independent author, these reviews help more than you can imagine.

    I have to share this, before I had ever read any of your books, I was at a bookstore and saw the American Family Portrait series, it looked so interesting but I didn’t want to buy the whole set and find out it wasn’t that great…so I bought the first book…read 3 chapters…put my 6 children *who were all under 10* into the car …went back and bought the rest!…I’ve shared them with friends ever since!

    So excited to find you have this blog!!! I’ll be promoting it like a psycho fan…er uh…I am a psychofan!
