Book Update

I just passed the 90,000 word mark in my newest book. I had been calling it Time Echoes, but now I'm playing with Interfinity as the title. What do you think of that title?

Anyway, the basic storyline is complete, but it's still just skin and bones. Over the next month, I will be adding details, developing characters, and including some important foreshadowing, as well as polishing, polishing, polishing.

But, at the same time, I have three trips to take, and I'm moving my family to Tennessee. This will be a challenging month indeed.

Dragons in our Midst on Audio!

Oasis Audio will create audiobooks for my Dragons in our Midst and Oracles of Fire series!

They will be unabridged with multiple actors doing the voices, and they will come out in MP3 format, perfect for your iPods and up-to-date CD players.

Raising Dragons will release in July, then the rest of the books will come out every two months thereafter until they catch up with what I've written.

I'm really pumped about this. I hear from kids who aren't allowed to read my books until their parents read them, but their parents don't have time. They said they would read them if they could get them on audio. I also know kids who are visually impaired, and this is a great way for them to enjoy my books.

If you're interested, here are links for Amazon and Christian Book Distributors:

Looking for a new church in Tennessee

At the end of May, I will be moving my family to Western Tennessee, near Middleton to be more precise, so we will be looking for a new church. I'm sure many of you in the area would graciously receive us with loving arms extended, but I'm hoping for a good fit. It's important to have strongly held beliefs affirmed.

Our beliefs our not exactly in the mainstream, so I will list some things I'm looking for. PLEASE don't reply to argue against my beliefs. That would be counter productive. I also realize that I might not find all of these in a church, but a reasonably close fit will help us be more comfortable. I am willing to make a significant drive in order to worship with like-minded brothers and sisters.

1. Teaches straight from the Bible - Not topic of the week
2. Not Calvinist
3. A holiness perspective-Close to John Wesley or Charles Finney teachings
4. Homeschool friendly
5. Teaches modest dress standards
6. Encourages courtship rather than dating

I thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
