I’ve decided to start a newsletter called Author Alerts. At the start I plan on it being a monthly issue, no start date yet.
Should I Write a Series or a Single Book?
I have written single books and I’ve written books within a series. The answer really depends on you. Some people only want to write one or two books at the most. And that is fine.
For such people I would encourage them to think about multiple books, series or not.
New writers are often advised to write a series. The argument is you have a better marketing opportunity. If a reader likes one, he/she will likely buy the others. Is it true?
The series The World That Was is a fictional story that is based on historical and Biblical facts. I didn’t one day just sit down and dash off a novel. It took tremendous research.
Now God institutes government. Part of that establishment is Capital punishment. Today people argue against it, but God instituted it. The fact is that there is no rational argument against the death penalty.
While it is true we don’t hear an audible voice from God He still impresses upon our hearts His call. And I am safe to say that if you are a born-again Christian then at some point you have or will hear the call of God.
God didn’t appear to Noah’s wife, his sons weren’t born yet, and his grandfather Methuselah wasn’t with him. The call came exclusively to Noah.
Yet all these people were impacted by God’s call on Noah.
God communicated His intentions to Noah and sent Noah out to preach the coming judgment upon mankind and indeed the world. But the world didn’t listen. They went on their way singing, dancing, living immoral lives, and laughing at Noah and those who followed him. But God had the last laugh.
Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
It says in 2 Peter that the sin of Gomorrah vexed his righteous soul from day to day …” Seeing their ungodly behavior bothered him. He hated the sin and probably never practiced it himself, but he was contaminated by it. So much so that his virgin daughters were able to get him drunk and commit incest with them!
