Precisely Terminated Amazon Blitz - September 24

If you want to buy my daughter's book, Precisely Terminated, from, a good day to do it would be September 24.

Why? Because that's our Amazon blitz day!

An Amazon blitz takes place when an author requests that everyone who wants to buy the book on Amazon do so on a particular day in order to help the book's rankings climb as high as possible. This way, it is more likely to get noticed on category lists because of its high ranking.

So I am asking for you to help out by ordering Precisely Terminated on Amazon sometime during the day on September 24. If you email the author on September 24 with proof of purchase from Amazon, she will send you an autographed adhesive label to put in the book as well as a bookmark. The label will have a graphic of Precisely Terminated on it. You'll also get a big hearty THANK YOU! Her email address is legossi (at) dragonsinourmidst (dot) com

Proof of purchase can be the email Amazon sends you to confirm your order. Click here to go to the Amazon ordering page. For more information about the book, go to the author's website -

Feel free to ask any questions. :-)

In Defense of Dragons

As an author of books that have dragons as characters, I am often asked about the appropriateness of including dragons as good beings. I have defended the practice many times in speeches and emails, so it's about time I wrote a blog post about it so that others can refer to my answer.

I will do this in the form of questions and answers.


Isn't a dragon a symbol of Satan in the Bible? Why would you use good dragons in a story? Aren't they evil?

The Bible uses a dragon to symbolize Satan, but God also describes Leviathan as one of his greatest creatures in Job 41, and this creature is clearly a fire-breathing, scaly monster that is strikingly similar to the dragons in my stories. It seems to be used in the Bible in multiple ways.

We shouldn't be surprised that a dragon, with its strength and ferocity, is used to explain the devil's tenacity in attacking God's people. But does such a symbol mean that all dragons are evil? I don’t think so. The same is true with a lion. The devil is called a lion that seeks to devour (1 Peter 5:8). Does that mean that all lions are evil? Again, I don’t think so. Jesus is called the Lion of the tribe of Judah. A lion is a symbol that can be used in many ways.

Satan is also described in the Bible as appearing as an angel of light, but certainly we are not to regard all angels of light as evil. Also, humans can reflect every wicked attribute of Satan, yet they can also reflect many of God's qualities. They can be good or evil in stories.

My stories says that many dragons are evil and were killed by the king’s slayers. Some, however, are good and are rescued. This follows a symbolic parallel to angels. Some angels are true to God, and some are fallen. We would be wrong to look at one fallen angel and assume that all angels are evil.

So it is with dragons. Just because one dragon is evil, we shouldn’t automatically insist in all stories that all dragons must be evil. In fact, to say so would be similar to superstition, not reason, and there is nothing in the Bible that says all dragons are evil. It just isn't there.

I will be glad to answer any civil questions.

Great pre-order price for Song of the Ovulum

Here is a link to a Christian bookstore that is selling Song of the Ovulum at a great pre-order price - $9.97! This price is good through July 1, and it will count in the bookstore blitz.

Song of the Ovulum Christian Bookstore Blitz

Purpose: To promote my new book Song of the Ovulum and help Christian bookstores.

Time: From July 2 through July 16.

Activity: Buy Song of the Ovulum at a Christian Bookstore during that time period.

Prepare: Call your Christian bookstore at least two weeks in advance of July 2 and ask them to order Song of the Ovulum for you. Some bookstores won't do a verbal order by phone, so you might have to go in to order it.

Report: When you get the book, report to me by email where you bought it. I have created a Google map with markers where people are buying the book. Here is a link to the map -

Reward: If you email me a scanned copy of your receipt, (bryan (at) daviscrossing (dot) com) I will send you an autographed adhesive label to put in the book as well as a Song of the Ovulum bookmark. The label will have a graphic of the Song of the Ovulum cover on it.

Other Rewards: I will visit as many of the reported (with scanned receipt) bookstores as I can during my fall tour. If I get 15 or more books reported for a particular store, I will buy pizza for those 15+ buyers when I come. Since my tour is nationwide, I should be able to get to almost any store except for Alaska and Hawaii. I am not guaranteeing that I will be able to do this for every store that gets 15 or more books sold at the location. I am saying only that I will do my best, and it depends on how close the store is to my tour route. If I can't make it there, I will come up with an alternative reward.

If you don't have a Christian bookstore in the area, you will be able to order from a Christian bookstore online at a special price. It won't count toward the pizza deal, but you will still receive the autographed label if you email your receipt.

Here is a link to the Christian bookstore's online ordering page for those who have no Christian bookstore in their area - Click here When the blitz begins, that page will have special low pricing for the book.

Family Christian Stores is participating by providing a 25% off coupon. Go to this link - and print out the coupon. Take it into a Family Christian Store and receive the discount for Song of the Ovulum.

Please share this information with as many people as you can--blogs, Facebook, Myspace, your email list, etc.

New Review of Masters & Slayers

Fantasy is my favorite genre of writing, so I have been looking forward to reading Masters and Slayers. From the opening pages of the story, the tale captured my attention, making the book nearly impossible to set aside. (It’s a good thing I started reading it on a day off rather than on a lunch break!)
I found the narrative interesting and creative. The characters were real, so real that often their motives remained hidden and left you guessing at the true state of their heart and the source of their actions. I had not previously read any of the author’s youth series set in the same world, yet I found the worlds and settings fully explained. There were several characters that gave you only the briefest glimpses into their stories, so I assume they will be developed in later books.

This book is marketed as a Christian book. I would instead call it theistic and moral, but not distinctly Christian as it did not include the one message that is unique to Christianity, a God who provides himself as the sacrifice, offering salvation and redemption as a free gift that man can not earn or in any way contribute to by his own works. The book does include the presence of a creator god, a moral code, a high value of life, faith as central to life’s choices, an underlying belief in justice and the responsibility to protect and defend the weak and oppressed. The book deals with issues of evil and the corruption of power. It also touches on the unmerciful fanaticism of legalistic religion, as well as issues of truth and deception.

This book is marketed for an adult audience including the adult themes of murder, brutality, slavery, lust and rape, but it does so in non-graphic ways, presenting elements of evil in the story without dwelling on the details. I appreciate any author who is able to discuss evil without having to paint graphic pictures.

I would recommend Masters and Slayers as a fascinating story, with varied themes and engaging characters. I look forward to the release of book two and the continuation of the Tales of Starlight.

Warrior Readers Please See This to Correct Error in the Book

I learned that my publisher left a paragraph out of Warrior.

On page 129, before the paragraph that begins, "Koren took three steps back" this paragraph should be inserted:

A loud flapping sound pierced the darkness. A white dragon passed through the canopy above without breaking branches or disturbing any leaves. It landed gracefully at her right, fanning Koren with its fluttering wings, but no wind reached her face. The same size as the dark dragon, it also appeared as a ghost at first, shimmering and semitransparent, but then slowly transformed into a solid body. 

On behalf of Zondervan, I apologize for this omission. It should be fixed in the second printing. 

Warrior now in Stock on Amazon is now listing Warrior as being in stock - Click Here.

It is also now allowing reviews to be posted for Warrior. If you enjoyed the book, please post a review.
