Happy New Year, Reading Friend! The Telbat Team prays you have a great New Year full of open doors to share the Good News of Jesus! This is Dee today with an update on David Telbat’s novel plans, PLUS the news you’ve been waiting for on Dawn of Affliction!
DAWN OF AFFLICTION
Book One of the Last Dawn Trilogy is NOW AVAILABLE on Amazon HERE! (aff link) Click our Dawn of Affliction link to read a description about this longest book of David’s yet. We didn’t quite get it out for 2018 but we hope it gives you much satisfaction, nevertheless. David looks forward to hearing your thoughts on this new direction for the COIL Series of novels.
Come join Levi Caspertein in many unforeseen scenarios, and see how people are living in their new post-apocalyptic world as he travels across America trying to reach a friend facing persecution.
And as a gift to David’s readers, we’re having a NEW YEAR’S SPECIAL SALE by making this new long novel available for $0.99 for THREE DAYS! [UPDATE: This sale is now over.] Happy reading!
The next project David plans to work on is called the Resolution Series, with the subtitle: America’s Last Days, as on The Steadfast Series. This new novella series will feature Agent Wes Trimble. David has drawn out a graph (below) that shows where the new series fits in the COIL timeline. The tagline is: There is hope in the midst of loss. This storyline takes place one year after The COIL Legacy Series ends.
Piece of trivia: Ever wonder which eye Wes Trimble wears a patch over? Well, we’ve wondered that too! David did some digging and finally found his note—it’s on his left eye! Now we won’t forget! 😉
DAWN OF OPPRESSION
Book Two of the Last Dawn Trilogy will be out later 2019. It will be another long one, David informs us, and will feature Jenna Dowler! Remember the blind adopted daughter of Agent Corban Dowler, who we first met in Dark Liaison? Wait until you see what David has planned for her in Dawn of Oppression! In Book One, Levi is anxious to get to Jenna in New York to help her amidst the persecution facing the East Coast. But traveling from San Diego, CA, on foot takes Levi much longer than he wishes . . . Read Dawn of Affliction to learn about his journey.
A NEW CHRISTIAN SCI-FI NOVELLA SERIES
I received this note from David recently:
“While I was waiting on Dawn of Affliction, I accidentally wrote another novella. It’s a bona fide Sci-fi genre novel, with some good Christian teachings throughout. Working title: Hidden Contact. Subtitle: Earth Encounters the Beyond.”
More info to come. 😉
FUTURE WEBSITE CHANGES
We’ve been posting on our Telbat’s Tablet website going on eight years (Feb). I’ve been the webmaster through those years, and I love posting David’s writings. But websites used to be easier to run and keep up with, but that is coming to an end. There are many new and advanced technologies coming that webmasters are being forced to know and do, mainly to keep safe from predators. Since I’m not a techie, it’s becoming more of a strain and stretch for me to continue.
David has urged me to look into other venues where we can display his books, and have a place for readers to visit to see what’s new, but where I wouldn’t need to be the back-end techie. Our new home won’t have a place to display our posts on the site, but we would still be able to send posts through MailChimp to your email, as we do now. We would also have a place where readers can subscribe to receive David’s posts. I may have found the platform but I need to do a little more research before we can let the cat out of the bag.
Also, we wonder what would become of all the many pages of short stories and author reflections that we have on our website for readers, when we eventually let the website go. We would hate to just erase them. My thoughts are that we could create several more collections, and sell the eBooks for a dollar or two.
We won’t be doing anything drastic real soon. It will take time to find and set up our new platform, and it will take more time to take down all the stories to put into collections. I’m just letting you know in advance that there will eventually be a major change for us.
And David has MANY MORE BOOKS IN HIM! He’s not stopping his writing, and we’re going to continue publishing his novels. Having a new platform would allow me to spend more time doing what I love most—editing and publishing David’s books!
We hope to keep you as David’s reading friend and that you will be able/willing to make the move with us, whenever that happens. We so appreciate you and are thankful that you love David’s writing and novels. We couldn’t do this without you!
That’s all for this time, Friend. We wish you a happy, healthy New Year ahead as we watch for Jesus’ return! And David says, he hopes to inspire God’s people to live boldly, prayerfully, and sacrificially for Jesus Christ in the New Year!
Until next time,
for the Telbat Team
