New author at Flaming Pen Press

A lot of people have asked me what will be the next book that I will publish with my company Flaming Pen Press. Well, here it is, Out of Darkness Rising! This is a novella, an allegorical one. Gillian Adams is the author and she captivated me with a unique story that follows the rise and fall of the Deceiver, or from the Fall to the Resurrection.

My policy is to publish only books that inspire me. The story has to hook me, and this one did.

The artwork for this cover was done earlier this year by Jared Sloger.

As to my own books, don't worry! I'll be updating everyone soon on the continuations in The Sword of the Dragon series. AMG Publishers is going to release Offspring sometime in September.

In the mean time, pop on over to Gillian Adams' blog and congratulate her please!

Good! I'm glad to hear it. Word-of-mouth will probably be the most effective means of sharing this with people. It is a great allegory and I do love a good allegory, so I'm looking forward to releasing it.

I can't wait to read this one. :) Not only is the cover fantastic, but I know for a fact that the author's writing is fantastic too!


"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.
