Okay – so I am a little nervous releasing this sort of a book considering I have made my bones as a writer of horror fiction and ghost stories – but dang it, I have ALWAYS loved the old Bible Stories and at the heart of it that’s what I am – is an honest to goodness storyteller.
So here goes nothing.
Let me tell you about this book.
The book is called Uncle Bob’s Red Flannel Bible Camp: From Eden To The Ark and it is told in the voice of my Uncle Bob – a raconteur of the old school – a man who never had an opinion that he did not care to venture.
Now let me show you the cover.
Gorgeous, isn’t it?
The cover is the work of talented cover artist Keri Knutson.
What the book is trying to be is a re-telling of the first few stories of the Old Testament told in a more comfortable, countrified style. I wrote it thinking about grown-ups and older kids and the ways that my grandfather and uncles would tell me some of the legends and tales and bible stories in their own unique fashion – rather than just reciting from the Bible.
You see, to me, those old boys – Adam and Moses and Abraham and Cain – and all those other folks – were most likely folks like you or me. They didn’t REALLY know that they were supposed to be biblical. They were just trying to get on with their day – same as you or me.
This is the first book of a series that WILL continue on throughout the rest of the Old Testament and right on through the New Testament.
Following March 14, 2014 the price will go up to $5.99. So that pre-order is offering you folks a MONSTROUS fifty percent saving.
I am working on getting it uploaded into the Createspace as well – so it will EVENTUALLY – before the month is out – be available in paperback format.
Some of you folks might wonder how I set up the pre-order on Kobo.
I basically followed the instructions on THIS REALLY HELPFUL VIDEO that Mark Leslie over at Kobo put out. The video ALSO explains the price ranges you ought to be thinking about if you are aiming to get your e-book showing up on the Kobo Daily Deal.
The book has done pretty well so far – judging by the leap it took in the Kobo rankings.
I’d like to thank all of those folks out there who have either bought or pre-ordered a copy of UNCLE BOB’S RED FLANNEL BIBLE CAMP.
I would also like to thank those folks who have reblogged and retweeted and shared all of my many links along the way. I couldn’t do any of this without your help.
yours in storytelling,
