SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL NOVELIST!

In today's market -- and as retail shelves come under the control of fewer and fewer people -- it is harder than ever for a novelist to make an impression. But you can do your part to help break emerging authors:

CHRISTIAN FICTION BLOG ALLIANCE
Our friend Bonnie Calhoun is taking the reins for the CFBA, and has some exciting changes planned. For the past year, the readers and writers all over the blogosphere have united to spotlight one novel a month, with reviews, essays and interviews.

Going forward, the CFBA will now focus on multiple tracks, such as Action/Adventure, Romance, Historical, Suspense -- whatever genre you prefer, chances are there is a blog tour just for you. Click on the link to see how you can join!

FICTION IN RATHER SHORT TAKES
Our friend Mimi Pearson is leading the way as readers and writers all over the blogosphere join together the first day of every month to post the first chapter from an exciting new novel. Reviews and interviews are nice -- but this is a chance to read an excerpt of the work itself.

YOU'RE INVITED TO A PARTY!

Forgiving Solomon Long

Today is my 40th birthday, but we're giving YOU the PRESENTS! Every person who buys DELIVER US FROM EVELYN from Amazon *today* will be thanked BY NAME in my third novel, KINGDOM COME (in stores April 2007).

BUT THERE'S MORE! You *also* get the super-limited compendium 40 AND COUNTING, the literary equivalent of a "bootleg box set" in convenient pdf form. This collection offers 40 rarities:


40 AND COUNTING: STORIES

A brand-new collection of 10 short stories, including four that have NEVER been published.



40 AND COUNTING: LISTS
10 pages of crazy lists, like I've done over the years for 7ball and now every month in CCM Magazine. You know, stuff like "Signs Your Neighbor is a Leprechaun" and "Signs You Need to Get A Life." (It makes you laugh AND it makes you think.)


40 AND COUNTING: COMICS

Includes "Que Es Amor?" -- a BRAND-NEW tale written by me and penciled by my wife, Erica. PLUS: An assortment of scripts, pitches to Archie Comics, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, and even some rejection letters.
