Like many Christian authors Frank Peretti has had a big impact on me. His Darkness novels captivated me and opened my eyes to the world beyond what we can see. My Angelguard series reflects that thin veil between the natural and supernatural worlds.

There are plenty of other authors who provide inspiration: Ted Dekker, Jim Rubart, Jerry Jenkins, Tosca Lee, Erin Healy, Ronie Kendig ... and on.(less)

“I have a handful of prayers that I pray all the time... One is that God will put my books into the right hands at the right times. I've prayed this prayer thousands of times, and God has answered it in dramatic fashion countless times. The right book in the right hands at the right time can save a marriage, avert a mistake, demand a decision, plant a seed, conceive a dream, solve a problem, and prompt a prayer. That is why I write. And that's why, for me, a book sold is not a book sold; a book sold is a prayer answered. I don't know the name and situation of every reader, but God does, and that's all that matters.”

Pete, it came out well, didn't it. Unfortunately, a slight delay in availability of the book. Another 3 weeks now.

I also got advised this week, Kindle/ebook is only being released when UK release occurs in late March.

All the best.
