NEWS | Free New eBook Now Available

Thanks so much for your support, readers and friends!

"If I were to disappear, would anybody notice?"

My first nonfiction book, 8 Reasons Your Life Matters, is now available FREE from most retailers! It is available exclusively in e-book format. It also provides some background into why I choose to write the novels I write.

Because of its short length of 50 pages or so, 8 Reasons isn't available in print. However, for those of you who enjoy reading your books in print, there is a PDF format you can print.

I hope you find encouragement in its pages. If you do, I'd love to hear about it. That's one of the greatest gifts a writer can receive!

Never give up!

  1. What a tremendous encouragement this was for me. I am at a terrible low in my life right now and have been reading and reading, looking, praying, and waiting to start climbing the ladder back to trust in family, people, and even church. I really think God landed me at your story the other night at 3 in the morning. It has been a real inspiration and I feel like my foot is actually reaching for the first rung. Thank you so much.

  2. @Anonymous: Thanks so much for your note. In that case, God answered a prayer that the book would help somebody, in some way. Don't ever give up. You are probably interested in the real and genuine, and that is something God values too. And when the day arrives that you're out of the pit, you will have a testimony that somebody else will need to hear, and you will be the perfect person to deliver just what they need. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4. And 3am God landed you--God can get ahold of a person when they are all alone in a room and meet them where they are and walk with them step by step. I have seen it happen and promise He can meet you where you are. Btw, your note arrived to me on a great day, so God has already used you. --John
