By now, I think, most of the regular visitors to my blog have already bought my books. But I live in hope that every day brings visitors who’ve never been here before and haven’t heard of my books.
Well, it’s easy to find out all about them. Just click “Books” at the top of the page, and you’ll see covers, descriptions, and sample chapters of all nine in the series–with No. 10, The Silver Trumpet, currently being made ready for publication.
Sorry for the commercial, but I do have to do this now and then.
Hi, Mr. Nature here, pleading with whoever’s out there to find this blog 131 more views before midnight–a tall order, but what does it hurt to ask?
Meanwhile, I found this nice video of a marine iguana peacefully feeding on seaweed underwater. I have to take issue with its billing as a “Godzilla lizard as big as a man.” Half of that length is just the tail, and a 6-foot-long marine iguana would be a real whopper. Not impossible, but quite unlikely. Nor does he look like Godzilla, King of the Monsters.
Marine iguanas live only on the Galapagos Islands and are not affiliated with the U.S. military. Social animals, they live in groups along the shore, basking on the sunny rocks. Males fight ritually, doing very little harm to one another, but sometimes have to break up fights between females, who have no time for ritual and take the issue of ownership of nesting space very seriously.
But it’s more of God’s stuff that’s been working without a hitch, just fine, for I don’t know how many centuries.
I’m lucky if my stuff works two days in a row.
Yep, here I am in The Washington Times this week, being quoted by Robert Knight (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jun/11/bernie-sanders-ruled-out-public-service-by-christi/) in his commentary about Bernie Sanders’ hostility to Christians.
It seems cuddly ol’ goofy Bernie isn’t so cuddly after all, if he finds out you actually hold orthodox Christian beliefs. That, he says, makes you unfit to hold any kind of public office. Running the country is reserved for atheists and Muslims, Bernie?
Oh, well. We aren’t just whistling Dixie here on this blog. Somewhere, somebody’s listening to us. And by “us” I mean all of us here, and not just me.
Greg Lammiman’s last comment, believe it or not, hit No. 15,000 right on the nose, making him the winner of our current comment contest. He was also the only one commenting so far today who hadn’t won yet, so he would’ve gotten a favorable finagle factor anyhow. But he didn’t need one.
So, Greg, you get an autographed Bell Mountain book, any book in the series–click “Books” and check the list if you aren’t sure of the titles, because there are nine of ’em out there by now. Then all you have to do is email me, at email@example.com, with your mailing address.
BTW, everybody, Greg makes Christian movies, and very good ones, at that. Maybe someday he’ll have a zillion-dollar budget to make a Bell Mountain movie.
Thank you all for playing–and keep those comments coming!
