Today’s the day!

Ready to take a peek at this summer’s reading sensation {hopefully}?

Announcing my new release and a cover reveal of My Name Is Sam … and Heaven Is Still Shining Through as it is now available for pre-order on Amazon Kindle online.  The latest effort is a novelization of my March 2018 debut release of the novella Heaven Shining Through, which has been claiming rave reviews by book reviewers and book bloggers alike.

While some of the core information from Heaven is incorporated in My Name Is Sam, the new venture expands the characters and extends the story beyond the novella. It is written in the first person, more like a memoir — a fictional memoir. I tried to incorporate that feel from the start. In fact, the introduction reads like a letter directly from Sam.

I have to tell you, for the past six months or so, I have been Samantha {I know that sounds weird}. Each time I sat down to write a scene, my thought process included was what would Sam do? What would Chad do? How would her mother react?

Like the first novella, this novel isn’t always pretty … but I think it is real. Samantha (the lead) is strong-willed and had a lot of dates, leading to some confrontations with her mother. She was equally strong in her resolve to remain pure. There is a scene when she and her then-boyfriend make love; however, the focus is the aftermath — the remorse, the regret by both Sam and Chad.

I try to promote a dash of faith within my writing. No matter what, God loves us and forgives us. Honestly, neither the novella nor the novel was intended to be “Christian” literature, but rather reading material everyone could enjoy without an overt Christian message. I intentionally did not want to preach to the choir. They are stories of reconciliation, self-awareness, and accomplishment. And they do deal with the sometimes messiness of life.

I am planning a formal book launch July 2, 6 p.m., at the Thompson Free
Library, Dover-Foxcroft, ME. It is my intent to live stream the event in hopes you might join and share the fun. I hope you will take advantage of the exclusive e-book pre-order sale and order your copy today at only $2.99 on Amazon Kindle!  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SRX1HGV/

Other presentations around Maine and possibly New Jersey, Ohio and New York are being contemplated. If anyone is interested in hosting or suggesting a venue, let me know at wisdomfromafather@gmail.com.

I would be willing to address your book club or group. for a visit. If you 2wanted to invite a few friends for coffee or iced tea, we could gather to just meet and greet, catch up, talk about My Name Is Sam … and Heaven Is Still Shining Through and the publishing process, maybe sign and/or sell a few books and bring you up to date with projects planned.

Exciting times!

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: We’re not guaranteed tomorrow. This is the only day we know for sure.
