I just wanted to repeat what I said on Facebook. We've had the first bit of income from the sale of books, for which I'm very grateful. Thank you everyone who's bought any of them, I really, really, want to say "thank you so much". Please if you feel inclined to, make a comment on any of the pages, Lulu or Amazon.

Here's the Facebook page if Ratskeppers who are on Facebook would like to "like" it, that would help too. Thank you. :thumbup:

:grin: I actually tried to write a thriller once, couldn't come to a conclusion though. Maybe I should try that again.

Just BTW I got a notification that my books are about to be distributed to Barnes & Noble's online store as well. I think they're a little expensive, so I'm getting my publishing assistant to reduce my portion of the income from the books. Not that I get much for them, only a few pounds/dollars per book. People who aren't supported by big publishing house and book tours, and signings, don't get paid very much for their work.

Biblical thriller set at the crucifixion. A young Rabbi investigates the goings on under the eyes of the Roman's, the Temple authorities and the crazy fools following the latest 'Messiah' to rear his head.

And of course, you need to add some conspiracy. Like the Illuminatis planning on undermining christianity to spread islam to start WW3 and make more money.

I started, 2 years ago :) But I'm not working very hard on it. Just write down a sentence or 2 when they come to mind. I'm not writing a story, so it's a different process. And I'll have to work on my memoire in the next months, so...

I've come to a decision about my own writing. I've been blogging my analyses of the chapters of Genesis, taken from the manuscript I wrote on the whole book. I've done Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers, completed, so there's a lot of material. I want to start working on Deuteronomy now.

Rather than sell them as individual expensive hard copies, I'm decided to release each of them as a pdf when I've blogged the whole book. This means I'll blog more than one chapter a week, and when each book is done, make a pdf available for download, without charge. I really want to get my analysis out there more than make any money off it. Of course a hard copy has to be charged for, but a pdf, that I'll give away. Not that I make any money from the books anyway.

Then in the meantime, I'm working on a fantasy novel. More on that later.

Fantasy ? Like a 600 y/o man building a boat to save a couple of all animals on the planet ? Or something with dragons and naked girls ?

Ah! A priestly novel.
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

I was quite excited to find that my books are on Goodreads. So I merged my two profiles. Also I'm giving away a pdf of the first book if anyone wants to download it, the link is in my signature. The others two $1 each just so it looks like I'm selling them but if any members want the others, just pm me and I'll upload them to we transfer, as freebies. The other books I'm working on, book by book, I'm not going to charge anyone for those, they'll just be freebies. I really don't want to make money off the books, just get some new ideas about the Bible out there. I'm a little tired of hearing, and seeing, "it's a load of rubbish".
