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.
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.
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.
