Well, hello everybody.
Yep, the official title now is “Illusion” since the novel is about a married couple who are magicians. It’s part love story, part sci-fi thriller, with some great characters. We’ve finished up the big macro-edit, and then the more detailed line edit, and now I think we’re about ready to get the artwork done and then, at some point, go to press. The book is typical Peretti novel length, I guess, over 600 pages, somewhere around 150,000 words, same size as The Oath, The Visitation, or the Darkness books. No spiritual warfare per se, but plenty of suspense and weird stuff to figure out. Christian message? As a matter of fact, yes, but I don’t spoon feed it to the reader. Those who have an ear will hear.
I’m going to retreat back to my Garden House to pray, think, and blab at the computer – I do a lot of brainstorming through dictation, very cool – in hopes of finding a word from the Lord for a talk I have to do toward the end of October. I don’t get out to speak much these days, but when I do, I earnestly desire to have something worthwhile to say, so be praying for me.
After that … well, the next book. No ideas yet, but that has never been a problem. Working for the Lord all these years I’ve observed, “When you need it, it’ll be there.” God is Faithful.
Thanks for dropping by.
