The Wisdom of Solomon
Chapter XII verse 5, 7
"And also those mercilesse murderers of children, & devourers of mans flesh, and the feasts of blood . . . That the land which thou esteemedst above all other, might receive a worthy colonie of Gods children."
The words of Jesus Christ are lyrical in their beauty in the original.
The book of Hebrews is currently thought to be of unknown authorship. But in the original 1611 it says The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Hebrewes and listen to how it opens:
"Christ in these last times comming to us from the Father is preferred above the angels, both in Person and Office." Every chapter is gifted with a powerful sentence like this. Modern scholars have been making changes that they don't expect common people to question. Most people believe that they own the original text of the 1611... few do.

Westfarms Mall in Farmington, CT
Notes: This event started slow. I only sold 5 books in the first hour. But after 1 o'clock hit sales snowballed. We sold 24 books and the staff said I can come back anytime I want. I'm going to do another signing at this store. It is fascinating to me how the BordersExpress and Waldenbooks stores seem to consistently sell my book so well.
So, WHAT'S NEXT? I've been asking myself that question for the past two months as sales for Swords of the Six continue to rise despite the fact that I have only done this in the time I have available away from my night job. God is in my writing endeavors; I know that. But more and more my focus at my hourly job has been difficult to maintain. My wife and I talked it over and we reached a decision: August will be my last month in the factory. Starting the first week of September I'm going back to writing and book-promoting Full-Time. I feel great about this decision. Here's the Plan:
September - November Book signings in all of New England
December until whenever! My wife and I are packing, moving out of our apartment, getting in the car and driving out to Indiana to start a national book tour that will include Atlanta, GA.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON
In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.
I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
