'Sneak Peaks' and other stories

A few weeks ago, I received my very own autographed copy of Forgiving Solomon Long, which I won in a contest at Novel Journey way back in January. And included in the package was a short story/excerpt from Chris Well's forthcoming novel, Deliver Us from Evelyn. "The Golden Age" was a delightful story featuring Charlie Pasch and came complete with a comic-book style cover drawn by Chris's wife, Erica. Very cool. And now, you can enjoy the same sneak peak because it's available for download at Infuze. Deliver Us from Evelyn will be arriving in bookstores in March, and this story should whet your appetite.

I got an e-mail today from Randy Mortenson, the author of Landon Snow and the Auctor's Riddle, which was on the blog tour back in November. The second book in the series, Landon Snow and the Shadows of Malus Quidam, also comes out next month and Randy says he likes this one even better. Randy is the featured author on the Barbour Books Web site this month (lower right corner), so you can find out more about him there. Or can check it out at Amazon or Christian Book Distributors.

One more thing -- one of the conversion stories was selected for publication by the New Pantagruel and it's online now. T.S. Beckett's With Every Head Bowed was chosen from the finalists Dave Long submitted to the arts editor and it's truly a distinctive story -- strong voice and an interesting take on conversion. Congratulations!
