Actually one of the reasons for writing Bible based novels is to encourage people to read the Bible; to discover what is Bible fact and what is a product of my imagination?
My very first book ever written was Refuge: The Genesis Chronicles. This book would later be incorporated into Perished: The World That Was. It was a look at the 120 years leading up to the Flood.
This special announcement comes to you my readers, fans, etc. first. I have published my latest book of the World That Was series. It is called World of Abraham.
I haven’t even placed it on my website yet, but that will be soon. But for now you are the first to see this newest novel.
As I have worked on my books over the years I have come across different ideas about writing scenes. The discussion usually centers around opening, middle, and end of scene, all critical areas. But one area that doesn’t get much attention is separation.
For example, in developing Shem I had to make sure that his character was consistent with the historical and biblical known facts. I also took into consideration tradition.
Side note: Reviews are not just for the purpose of marketing. They also shed light on potential or existing problems that need correcting.
It is important to remember that there are criteria to be followed regarding any pictures you include within the book’s interior. Create Space has their requirements and other publishing houses have theirs. They may not all be the same, so be sure to find out what is required and what is acceptable. Then make sure you meet them. If you don’t the book may be rejected, requiring you to bring the picture up to snuff.
The consensus opinion is that you need to have your book copyrighted. Now the truth is that the moment you create the work it is considered copyrighted. This means that you can include a copyright designation in your book (example: copyright © 2017).
You can also file with the government to get the book copyrighted.
The cover is one of the most important items a writer needs. And often it is approached almost as an afterthought. But it is what first captures the potential buyer’s eye.
While I hope more Christians write on Biblical events and people, I recognize that it places a heavy burden on that writer.
But it is worth it.
