  1. Congratulations, Johne!😀
  2. I'm so jazzed! My new book, Unpacking Leviticus: The Third Night Journey of Nicodemus, is now live on Amazon.com. Link below. In a nutshell, this is an in-depth study of how Leviticus gives insight into the Messiah, couched as an adventure story as Nicodemus flees to Damascus, always one step ahead of Saul of Tarsus. Let me know if any of you would be willing to Read/Review and I'll shoot you a MOBI ARC. This gathers a ton of information from many different sources, unpacking every chapter of Leviticus while entertaining with a thrilling fast-paced humorous adventure, loaded with tidbits about the rich history and geography of the First-Century Jordan River Valley. Here's the back-cover blurb: When the small scrap of parchment is handed to Nicodemus, it only contains the one word, Tetelestai. But that word sends him on a flight for his life with his faithful Greek servant, Trecho. On a wager, the pagan Greek allows Nicodemus to read the scroll of Leviticus to him while they travel, and explain how this Messiah Jesus could possibly be in every part of it, when the scroll was written thousands of years earlier. At every step they are hounded by the rabid Pharisee Saul of Tarsus, who has a personal vendetta against the aged rabbi, and is headed to Damascus himself with papers that will place all the believers there in jail. https://www.amazon.com/Unpacking-Leviticus-Third-Journey-Nicodemus/dp/B084Z6BZHL/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=9798604641880&linkCode=qs&qid=1582310959&s=books&sr=1-1
  3. ARC Call: (Advanced Reader Copy) I am nearing publication point on my next book, Unpacking Leviticus: The Third Night Journey of Nicodemus. I have a need for Advanced Readers willing to read through a kindle version of the book and do one or more of the following: 1) Give me feedback on any typos, historical errors, grammatical errors, translational errors, or possible biblical misinterpretations, character development or world-building issues. 2) Leave a rating and hopefully short review on Amazon/Goodreads for the book. If you choose to leave a review please include the following disclosure statement: *I received a free digital copy of this book for an honest review* You can IM me if you want a kindle copy. You will need a valid email address for me to email a MOBI to, and then if you are on a smartphone you should be able to open the MOBI attachment in the Kindle App, or save it and import it to your Kindle while attached to the PC by USB cable.

  4. It is! The game can be played through a link on that page. I'd like to say I'm nearing the finish line on it, but I'm about 25% done, and haven't devoted much time to the game since midyear. But it's an excellent tool for learning scripture, if you are a gamer and like RPG games.
  5. Hey guys, I'm at 32k and counting. I'm a rebel this year too. First, because even though i considered doing a MG Historical Fiction novel this year on Magellan's Voyage and a stowaway kid turned cabin boy, I'm also working on a second year-long devotional for 3-6-5 Devos, called 365 Names of the Believer. The first one has sold very well, and I've had several opportunities to speak before a group on it, so I'm trying to get caught up on this second Devo. At Day 149 right now, so I and have done approximately 50 for this Nano. At the current rate I need about 130,000 words this nano to be caught up. I doubt at current rate I will get anywhere close to that, but at least I'm making progress. I'll have to go back through and pare these down later anyway, maybe i should make them shorter. Good luck all with your novels and projects! You can be my buddies on the Nano site, I am MisterChris over there too.
  6. Outstanding! Chuck, on your 'I AM' post, have you ever heard Bob Bennet's song, Man of the Tombs? If not, look it up on YouTube. It's well worth the listen. Or just click here to get his commentary on it:
  7. Hey all, getting very close to publication on my 365-day devotional on the Names of God. Here's a link to the cover reveal on my author site on Facebook.

  8. There's a New Kid in town... and he's brought a crime wave with him. Valuable items are going missing in school, and one of Jason's classmates is behind it. Someone in Arbortown is robbing the homes of the students at school - someone who knows when nobody's home. But when they rob Jason's home, they get more than they bargained for. You don't just rob the kid who can STOP TIME and expect you're going to make a clean getaway. Meanwhile, Kyne has problems of his own. Someone has kidnapped the Court Wizard, Garon, and Kyne heads out to rescue him. And while he's busy, an invading army has crossed Lynvia's northern border and is marching on the capitol. Delegates from the invading army are demanding the return of their kidnapped princess, who was seen being taken by members of the Royal Lynvian Guard!
  9. When Jason Fentris, Kyne Goodrum's double, finds out his dad is still alive, he and his friends head out to rescue him from the Mob, confident in their newfound superpowers. But the Mob isn't going to let Jason's dad go quite so easily. After all, there's a contract out on him - and they have a rep to protect. In Lynvia, angry dragons are demanding assistance in hunting down a band of thieves - thieves dressed in the green uniforms of the royal Lynvian guard! These imposters have entered the forbidden dragon graveyard and made off with various dragon body parts... But what could anyone want with old dragon bones?
  10. Middle School is the least of Kyne Goodrum's problems. That is, it would be if he could take his dragon along. When Kyne moves to a sleepy little town in Tennessee, he has no idea the house his family is moving into is 'haunted'. He begins having dreams of a world where dragons live, where magic really works, and for some inexplicable reason, everyone he meets is trying to kill him! He spends each day dealing with bullies and burned-out teachers, and each night running for his life. When's a guy gonna get some sleep? His only friend is a sarcastic dragon who seems to know much more than he's saying.

    Life in HyperSpace

    Spraypainting the cat? What was he thinking?? With four year college degrees under our belts and a dab of training in Child Psychology, my wife and I thought we were ready for anything when it came to this parenting gig. We had no idea we would be outnumbered and outgunned. From diet to riot, meds to charts, we've tried it all, to train up our ADHD kids in the way they should grow. From the Home School of Hard Knocks, our four ADD and ADHD kids have taught us more about coping and planning ahead than any four year college degree could have, especially when it comes to understanding what goes on in the mind of a five year old in a Buzz Lightyear costume flying on a treadmill. To Infinity, and Beyond. This is the chronicle of two adult ADD parents and their four ADD/ADHD kids living in a loving madhouse with four neurotic cats and a snow white bi-eyed monster dog that eats trees.Inside you will find more laughs and maybe some help and advice for what to do with the ADD kids in your own home, from someone who's Been There, Done That.
  12. Working with NaNoWriMo on writing my 8th book, Gold. The Yellow Door. It's a MG Sci Fi on issues of Greed and Pride.
