in Hanover MA

Hanover MA has the most interesting Borders Express store I have seen to date: it is a stand-alone building instead of in a mall. I stayed from 12 - 4:20 because sales were going slow. Apparently Ted Kennedy's funeral was right down the street and there was an enormous turnout. Despite that, I sold 17 books! We will be doing a follow-up event at this store. I met a couple Christian guys who showed great enthusiasm for my novel. It is always great to meet fellow believers. Anywere in the world I can find a brother or a sister in Christ.

Great job Mr. Appleton!
It's so cool to run into good Christian people. Especially the reader/writer types ;) lol

But hey, did you ever get my reply to your email? I should be able to start talking to people now if you wanted.

Thanks! Keep up the good work!

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

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.
