In our day there is a proliferation of men “who call themselves apostles, and they are not…” (Rev 2:2) I constantly get friend requests and new Twitter followers on a more regular basis than I used to, presumably as more and more people have discovered this blog or podcast or any of my Kindle books. I no longer accept every friend request, but encourage following my fan page instead. On Twitter, I feel no guilt in not reciprocating a follow. However, every so often I look at profiles [Continue reading...]
My thoughts this morning come to you after reading a couple of different articles. The first from Relevant Magazine that I read last night, but I'll get to that second. This morning I came across an article from Church Leaders called The Church Failed Millennials, Just Not in the Way You Think It Did. The author admits to being 27 years old, which at this point is not too many years younger than I am, since by definition I'm considered one of the older millennials. And granted, I'm writing [Continue reading...]
I started writing this article for Medium.com nearly a year ago but never got around to posting it. When I decided to publish it on my blog, I was going to split it into two parts, but decided to leave it as it is. It's long, so I hope you have your cup of coffee handy, but if you're a sci-fi nerd like me you'll still appreciate the thoughts put forth. When I was a pre-adolescent, I looked forward to watching brand new episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation on Friday nights at 10pm on our local [Continue reading...]
You'll have to forgive me for yet another post about Amazon Kindle in quick succession. I've been working on some other updates and more theological posts about disciple-making for my blog which I'll get around to this week. With the timing of the new Kindle Unlimited service, I couldn't resist the urge to post real quick about it and then get back to my other planned writings. I found out about it on Thursday as a rumour, but then on Friday they actually launched it. For those visiting my [Continue reading...]
This post is written specifically for other authors who've written Kindle books or are planning on it. I've written previously why many authors make their books exclusive to the Amazon platform, specifically for the promotion benefits Amazon gives authors who are enrolled in KDP Select for 90 day intervals. When enrolled in KDP Select, an author has the opportunity to do one of two promotions during that ninety day period; either a free promotion up to 5 days in length or broken up into parts [Continue reading...]
From time to time, I get asked why my books aren't available on the Kobo/Nook/iPad, or [insert your non-Kindle e-reader of choice]. The simple answer? The vast majority of e-book readers use a Kindle device (like 55% of the market). The other 45% is divided over the e-reader options. I would sincerely love to accommodate those who encourage me and like my writing but simply have another preferred device for reading ebooks. Unfortunately, most of the other companies are NOT user-friendly [Continue reading...]
