Hi Reader Friends! This is Dee peeking from behind the screen with an UPDATE on exciting upcoming Suspenseful Fiction with a Faith Focus by D.I. Telbat! I’ve also included some links below for ideas for Nepal giving.
CALLED TO GOBI
David and his team are working hard on editing/revising his next novel, Called To Gobi, planning to have it out as an eBook early summer 2015! Be watching our book page here for that news and to read a description and see the new cover. This is a different kind of book from D.I. Telbat’s COIL Series. It’s told in first person by character Missionary Andrew Foworthy, has the Gospel message woven throughout, and is set in an End Times scenario in Mongolia. We hope you enjoy it and we look forward to hearing your feedback!
THE LEGEND OF OKEANOS: A TALE of Restoration, Survival, and a Great White Shark
UPDATE: The Legend of Okeanos is NOW available in eBook format at most retailers! Click the title to find links to where you can find this exciting adventure!
THE NEXT COIL SERIES
Oh, my! You should see what David has in mind for you, his readers! 🙂 I met with him in March for another brainstorming session and he has decided to do things a little differently from what I announced last time. (Things are always changing!) He’ll first give you a new prequel novella for the next COIL Series of books.
He’s settled on a new series title, The Breakaway COIL Series: Birth of a Legacy. It’s a continuation of The COIL Series, and yet it can be read as a standalone series by those who’ve not read the first 5 books. New character, Titus Caspertein, whom you met in Dark Zeal, will have a large role in the new series, but don’t fret! You’ll see your favorite old characters back as well! With plenty of excitement and surprises in store, as David always provides, I know you’ll enjoy these books!
We’re leaving the “Dark” theme behind and will be using “Distant” in these titles. A couple of the working titles are: Distant Boundary, Prequel, and Distant Contact, Bk1. David has just finished writing the Prequel, which serves as a short intro to the series. And he’s going to offer it as a FREE download to his subscribers who are able/choose to get it from Smashwords! We don’t have a date yet for this book, so be watching our Novel News Page for that info.
A COIL TRILOGY
David has also written the first book in his new COIL Trilogy, but he’s decided to bring this futuristic COIL series to you after The COIL Legacy Series is published, which we think will have another set of five books. We’ll provide more info as he proceeds.
David will continue providing standalone short stories for you each week, OR related posts such as his book research, reviews, author reflections, novel news, etc, so please stay with us and keep reading! Subscribe here to receive David’s stories and other posts right in your inbox weekly. We also have an exclusive Subscriber Gift for you, “Between the Pages: Other COIL Stories.” Come join us, and tell your friends! 🙂
SUBSCRIBER FRIEND JAN ON A MISSION
Please be praying for our subscriber friend, Jan, as she proceeds in her calling with her ministry, I Will Rise. She will be traveling/moving soon. Pray that the Lord leads her, protects her, and provides all of her needs.
I still intend to do a major remodel/update on our website in the near future so watch for that! (Maybe shoot a few prayers upward for that endeavor as well? Thanks!)
Most of you know that David Telbat has a heart for the Persecuted Church. We have researched and added appendices to the backs of The COIL Series books to highlight ministries that act as the hands and feet of Jesus in helping persecuted and suffering people around the world.
In this terrible time of suffering in Nepal, you may be wondering how best to give or help. Here’s a list of ministries we feel are “safe” to give through. (It’s just our opinion and we have no affiliation with these ministries other than through prayer and giving.)
Vision Beyond Borders is the focus in the back of Dark Rule, Book Three in The COIL Series. Founder/Director Patrick Klein is personally leaving May 6 with supplies and funds for Nepal. VBB has been working in Napal for 22 years, supports a safe house and children’s homes in this area. You can read about their efforts here.
Christian Aid Mission is in the back of Dark Zeal, Book Five in The COIL Series. They support and supply ministries that help indigenous missionaries in their own countries. CAM indigenous missionaries are working in Nepal to provide aid in the name of Christ. You can learn more here.
I hope this is helpful for you in your decisions on how you can best help in this terrible tragedy. There are many believers in the Nepal area. Let’s all be praying for them.
Well, I think that’s about all for this time around. I need to get back to work on Called To Gobi before David finds out I’ve been playing hooky and have been talking about him! 😉
The Lord bless you and keep you as you serve Him,
COMING UP: Next WEDNESDAY we have “The Story Behind Character Name in Called To Gobi.”
