Stuck for a Christmas Gift Idea?

See the source image

Yeah, I know it’s blowing my own horn, but I’ve got to do it.

Of course, you don’t have to wait for Christmas to give someone one of my Bell Mountain books. Any day of the year will do. There are nine of them in print so far, starting with Bell Mountain, and a tenth one on the way, The Silver Trumpet. You can order them via amazon.com, or just stay on this blog, click “Books,” and order them directly from the publisher at the Chalcedon Store (http://www.chalcedon.edu/store/). I do hope that link works; I tend to bollix up such things. But if it doesn’t, you can still find it on the “Books” page, complete with shopping cart icon.

Click “Books” and enjoy Kirk DouPonce’s wonderful cover artwork–and you can read sample chapters, too. That’d be better than me just saying that I write good books. Did you ever hear an author say “I turn out junk”? So take a look and decide for yourself. The target audience for these is “Young Adult,” ages 12 and up, but they do seem to appeal to all ages. I’m always surprised when people tell me their 8-year-olds really enjoy them, too.

And now this commercial has run long enough.

 

Homeschoolers, Ahoy!

Time for a commercial break.

If any of you out there have read my books, and liked them, and belong to a Christian homeschooling association, I’d be very much obliged if you’d drop them a line recommending my books. I’ve been trying for years to break into this market, and I haven’t done it yet.

The books are all available from amazon.com, or directly from the publisher, Storehouse Press via the Chalcedon Store at http://www.chalcedon.edu , and there are nine of them in the series so far, with No. 10 due to be published some months from now. But our advertising budget is  small, microscopic even, and we are very much dependent on word-of-mouth recommendations from readers.

End of commercial.

Visit Chalcedon’s New Website

The logo represents the crown rights of Jesus Christ the King of Kings, to which we devote ourselves.

I would be greatly remiss if I didn’t urge you, one and all, to check out The Chalcedon Foundation’s new, state-of-the-art website at https://chalcedon.edu/ .

Not that I know or understand much in the way of computer stuff. This morning I just found out that I’m a follower of my own blog. How dumb is that?

Chalcedon is an international Christian teaching ministry founded by the late R.J. Rushdoony–who, more than anybody else in America, secured our right to provide Christian home schooling to our children.

The new website is chock-full of articles on theology, book and movie reviews, historical writings, socio-political controversies, and more. It includes tutorial video to help you get started in using it, with continued access to the old site, plus archives–and it’s all free. Plus there’s the Chalcedon store, where you can order my books. (*!*)

It took a very long time and lot of very hard work to get this project done. (I was going to make a wee joke here, but something tells me that I’d better not.) As a contributing editor for Chalcedon–they also publish my books, and maintain this blog, not to mention hundreds of articles by me which are now to be found on the website–I invite you all to drop in and look around. You’re bound to find something useful!
