I'm thrilled to report that Robert, my husband, had his first book published!
Well, self-published, but it would have taken reams of money and time to publish it any other way, and then it might have been difficult to find a publisher, so Robert decided to go through Amazon and now his book is available on Amazon dot com or dot ca.
It's either $3.02 US for an electronic version or $6.99 US for a paperback version.
It's also available for $3.83 Cdn for electronic.
November 21, 2017: Robert holding a copy of his first book which arrived from Amazon on this date! It's very thrilling. Congratulations, Robert!
I finished reading Robert's first book last evening. It was weird to read a book written by him. I was filled with a bit of angst that he'd beat me to publishing his first book, but I always was as slow as molasses in winter, so it isn't very surprising. Then after the first few pages of set up and description (always necessary for any story) I delved right into the plot and was immersed in the time and era of Israel, Jerusalem and Bethlehem and the accompanying lives of the characters in scenes which took place just before the birth of Christ. I found the characters to be believable and likeable, even King Herod (to a point) and my favourite scenes were the ones with Thomas, the little shepherd boy, and of course David and his journey along the way to Bethlehem. I found it to be thought provoking and enjoyable. If you haven't yet bought a copy, please do so!
