So, you may or may not (probably not) have noticed that I haven’t exactly been staying up to date with writing a weekly devotional this past month.
Well, I’ve decided to take a brief hiatus from writing the weekly devotional.
My plan is to take July off, then resume the same weekly schedule in August.
The reason why is I’ve been overwhelmed. Plus, I’m lazy. Plus, I’m bad at administrative tasks. Plus, I never know what day of the week it is, so I keep forgetting to write the devotional in time.
I am slowly chipping away at the next book, Abram. But I’m behind because I’m doing a LOT of research (which I enjoy conducting about as much as I enjoy cleaning toilets–which isn’t much), and I am taking my time (rather than rushing it like with Eden) to make certain that I don’t burn myself out again (I like enjoying the process every once in a while).
In addition to that, I have a wife and a daughter who I want to prioritize spending time with.
Many of you know I work a full-time job at a non-profit and write on the side.
In addition to writing Abram, I’m finishing up a screenplay for hire, writing a video series for a ministry, finishing up a curriculum for another ministry, and …… you get the picture.
So, I’m taking July to finish some projects and re-organize my life so that I can give this devotional the amount of focus it needs.
Because after only 6 months, we’re coming close to 400 subscribers to the devotional! I appreciate your kind feedback, and am grateful for your support.
It’s because of you and many others that the Fall of Man series has sold around 4,000 books in three months, while a couple thousand more of you have read the books through the Kindle Unlimited subscription reading program, and about 1,000 have listened via the audiobooks. Eden was the #1 best-selling biblical fiction novel on Amazon for most of those three months.
I’ve never felt so encouraged as I have with this launch. I look forward to continuing to serve you.
In the meantime, Christianaudio.com is doing a free audiobook of the month giveaway on one of the three books in my Psalm Series (a series of novellas based on the Psalms). Hit the link below for more info.
The Psalm Series was a multi-author series that I set up and published, where each author took one psalm and wrote a novella based on it. I wrote a fantasy parable based on Psalm 23. Mesu Andrews (yes, the Christy-award winning author) wrote a historical novella based on Israel’s captivity in Babylon. And Carole Towriss wrote a novella about the apostles who endured persecution and looked to the Psalms for encouragement and guidance. They’re great stories. I did the narration on all three.
Mesu Andrew’s novella is available for free in audio format HERE.
The rest of the audiobooks in the Psalm Series are 50% off this month, so if that sounds interesting, snatch them up.
Or, if you’re more of an e-book/paperback kind of person, you can find more info at psalmseries.com. (There’s a 7-day devotional at that website link, too.)
Until August, be blessed. I’m praying for you.
