Two New Books

Updated on November 10, 2012

Over the years writing has become one of my passions. First and foremost my passion is Jesus Christ. Everything I write includes Him in one way or another. That doesn't mean that everything is necessarily factual. 99% of what I share on hubpages and elsewhere come from a research angle of theology and Bible study. That leave approximately 1% that becomes fiction.

If the truth be told, I enjoy writing fiction as much as any other form of writing. It allows me to look inside myself and see what I'm really about. I guess my fiction writing is in a word, therapeutic. Without getting too philosophical, suffice it to say that I just enjoy conjuring up and developing what if's . . . .

In a world of fiction anything can happen. Anyone can exist. Any lesson can be taught. Any cause can create any effect. It allows for the free run of the imagination. I'm sure many of you know exactly what I'm talking about.

As a prelude to two of my latest books, I published the nine part series Stage (f)Right on hubpages back in March of this year. If you care to look at it, here is the link to part one.

In June the book was released on Amazon.com. The story is about a young rock-n-roller headed for fame only to be taken by the occult for the devil's own purpose. I must admit that much of the story is autobiographical in nature, and as I go back and read it from time to time, it still scares me.

From the back cover of Stage (f)Right:

Ritchie Jean Baker's journey from small town obscurity to world wide fame as a rock guitarist has left him, empty, aching, and without hope. As he heads deeper into the darkness of the music industry, he leaves behind a string of broken relationships including his relationship with himself. Still he must pay the price to stay on top. What is that price? His soul.

As he becomes entangled in the web of the occult, he realizes the choices he has made have consequences. Given the opening in his life, the forces of evil take him down a one way road to destruction. While he flounders, a small group of faithful Christians enter the battle on his behalf--but is it too late?

The story of Ritchie Jean Baker is played out 1,000 a day. Could you be next?

It just may be that you know of someone trapped in the occult. Hopefully this book might be a help to them, or perhaps prevent someone from going down the path of darkness in the future. The devil is real. His game is real. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Within the past week, I also just released Jacob's Ladder. This is a novel that explores the timeless questions of life and death, faith and doubt, and good and evil. The side that ultimately wins is a choice. Jake Crandall finds God in a most unusual way, and stays faithful in life's trials and temptations until a traumatic experience brings his world crashing in on him.

From the back cover of Jacob's Ladder:

The fabric of Jake Crandall's life was being stretched - and stretching well - until it ripped.

To escape the pain and trials of life, Jake leaves civilization and makes his home in the Colorado wilderness carrying his secrets with him. While preparing for the winter ahead, Jake is trapped in an unexpected snowstorm and awakes in the shelter of a cave. But how did he get there?

The answers run deep and would remain buried with the snow if it were not for a gentle stranger that comes to Jake's aid. Together they face his past as layer after layer is peeled away from Jake's soul.

There is healing, but is Jake willing to pay the cost? The answer lies within a cave far up in the Colorado Rockies - blanketed in time.

I would be honored if you would at least consider these two books for your library. I know the author personally so I can promise you that both of these titles are written from his heart, and my prayer is that they will encourage and inspire you to move forward for our Lord.

      Hi LS,

      I'll just say, I'd love to read some of your fiction. Hope you consider posting some of it soon.

      Shame on me for knowing and reading you so long and not realizing you've written books. Glad they're on Amazon. I agree that fiction is therapeutic. I have not done much fiction in recent years, but I've been toying with the idea recently. What I have written in the past was not too much worth publishing in a book, but it so freeing to create. Creativity is a gift from God, and in fact, is an attribute of God. Blessings brother Bill.

      Mekenzie,

      It's funny. 99% of what I write on HubPages is factual, but the other 1% (fiction) is what I really enjoy. And I really think that it's therapeutic for me.Thanks for the visit and the vote!

      I received and read your book Jacob's Ladder. I laughed and cried even more. So much that can be compared to real life. I do not know if it is true or just a novel but many parts of it is true for me in real life.

      I would recommend it to others on here and they should know that by getting a copy they are not wasting their money. It is worth a read.

      Hi Dannette,

      It's been a project long overdue. I love to write fiction (which I don't do much here on HP). I hope it might be useful to many people. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to check them out.

      I am very interested in the Jacobs Ladder book! Often I use books I purchase to give to people as a form of ministry and seed planting. Both books actually sound pretty amazing. Looking forward to reading them both :)
