I have just completed a 6-novel romantic-adventure epic set in Asia and North Africa in 3203 BC. The books are uploaded on Amazon Create Space for the paperback version, but I'm holding back from pushing the Review button because of various questions for Amazon which are merely technical and not appropriate here e.g. ISBN's--mine or theirs--pricing, limitations on my marketing flexibility under various ISBN choices they provide, crop lines on uploaded cover PDFs etc. All 6 books were 100% edited by Dr. Dennis Hensley (of Taylor University and CWG) over 2011-12. I've spent this year formatting the manuscripts for publishing and studying the changing publishing industry, while my artist son prepared the art work for the 6 covers. The paperback series will be ready to market in a couple of weeks. Then I'll do the Amazon conversion of the paperback templates into the Kindle format. The project, including research has taken about 30,000 hours over 12 years.

 

 

Once the books are available in both formats, I'll start the web site with a focus on Middle Eastern archaeology. This will support distribution and readers with my bibliography, links to archaeological sites related to the epic, reviews of ongoing excavations and their directors in the Middle East, and other items of interest to those interested in knowing more about the history of the Fertile Crescent.

 

 

I'm already a member of Christian Writers Guild (3 conferences and a dozen webinars) and American Christian Fiction Writers (1 conference, monthly critique group meetings, a score of monthly courses). I have not checked out ChristianWriters.com before.

 

 

I'm posting this because the new members' instruction message suggested I do so.

Welcome (although I'm fairly new myself). There's much to explore on this site! My new year's resolution is to make a daily visit to the site, however brief, and also to write a little somethin' somethin' each day...
