Richard Spillman | 7 comments Might you be interested in reviewing my novel, The Awakened, which will be released Oct 1? If you are I can send you a hard copy just before then or, as I could send you an ecopy now. The book is Christian spec fiction. The back cover summary is below.
Thanks, Richard Spillman

Everyone dies once. But what if a chosen few were raised from the dead?

Two thousand years ago Jesus resurrected his friend, Lazarus and founded a secret organization: SOAR. Since then Jesus has added to the resurrected—The Awakened—to aid Lazarus in SOAR's battle against Satan's slaves, the UnVeilers. The threat is escalating. The UnVeilers have stepped up their attacks on mankind through a charming leader and a devastating series of bombings in Dubai and Tel Aviv. But the invasion doesn't stop with international terrorism. The UnVeilers are searching for a secret that Jesus embedded in Lazarus’ journal that not even Lazarus knows—and it will determine the fate of mankind. After a failed cyber-attack against SOAR's computers, Lazarus and his team of experts must find the secret before the UnVeilers do. What clue is he overlooking that could turn the tide of this ageless conflict?

The souls fighting with Lazarus are weary, but the war against evil is far from won. Can Lazarus and his team set aside their longing for heaven and put a stop to these satanic attacks before it's too late?

Hi Richard,

Your book sounds very interesting! I'll be glad for you if you do find reviewers through this post, but I just wanted to point out that we have regular peer review sessions in this group in which (usually) 12 authors submit their books for review by others in the group, receiving 3 reviews each over a 2-month period.

One such review session is just ending. You might be interested in having a look at the thread: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/.... If you watch the notifications from this group, you'll be able to sign up for a future session. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis.

May the Lord bless many through your book!

—Steve.

Great! Watch for a general group announcement about it, which should be coming out shortly. As I said, it will be first-come, first-served.

One thing I should have mentioned in my earlier reply is that these are mutual reviewing sessions: so in addition to having others review your book, you'll be expected to provide two reviews of other people's books. But that's over a period of 2 months, so hopefully shouldn't be too heavy a commitment.

Looking forward to seeing you in the next session!
