Welcome, Reading Friends and New Subscribers! This is Dee today with a Christian novel update on David Telbat’s books and writing plans. Boy, is he a busy guy! His team can hardly keep up with him! 😉 We have several projects to tell you about that are at different stages of publication.
The STEADFAST Series
The Steadfast Series is well on its way through our editing phase. You can read more about this new futuristic, apocalyptic novella series on The STEADFAST Series page here, as well as in this post, “The Unknown Future.” Watch for a new post on March 6th with more about the books and characters in, “Fear about the Future.” David will have the first three books out soon, with more to follow in this new series.
Tears in the Wind
Many of you know that David wrote a book some time ago titled, Sea Scribe. He has updated the book and renamed it, Fury in the Storm, but he’s kept the amazing storyline unchanged. Now, David is well into the first draft of the sequel, Tears in the Wind. This novel, as with many others, has required much research. The subject this time is of child soldiers around the world. We’ll have more info for you in the near future. This Leeward Set will be available later this year, with a special offer for subscribers that you won’t want to miss!
There is also a very special feature in this novel. Last year, we held a giveaway, and one of the prizes was for a winner to be included as a character in one of David’s novels! Susan L won that prize and David is including her in this amazing rescue story. Stay tuned for more! 🙂
COIL Recruits for Christ: A Short Story Collection
This set of 15 of some of D.I. Telbat’s best short stories are brought under one cover for a second collection, COIL Recruits for Christ. Most of these stories are COIL-related, as are the stories in Book 1. Book 2 will be available early 2017.
Book 1, COIL Extractions: A Christian Short Story Collection, is available for FREE at most retailers (and soon from Amazon, too)! Visit this page to see where you can download it for free right now! Both collections will soon gain new covers as well.
Called To Gobi in Paperback!
Called To Gobi is waiting in line to be updated and submitted for a print version for those who love paperbacks! Be watching for that news this spring!
Telbat’s Tablet Website Changing to HTTPS
“What is HTTPS?” you might ask. Well, the short version, it’s to make our site even safer for our readers and visitors! The “S” means “Secure,” so when you see addresses with the S in the top bar of a web page, you can be assured that anything you send on that page is encrypted and deemed safe. Our Telbat’s Tablet site address will be changing over in the next few weeks. I’ll let you know when it happens. Then, our address will change from “https://ditelbat.com” to “https://ditelbat.com.” That’s it! 🙂
Brainstorming with David Telbat
As we try to do a couple of times a year, I’ll be meeting in person with David this month to discuss further plans for his new series and other projects. I’ll see if he has time to do another interview that we can post soon, too. I also look forward to hearing about the prison ministry he’s involved in, and the many men coming to know Christ. God is working even in the dark places of the world!
That’s it for this time. The Lord bless you and keep you as you each serve Him in your own circles.
Prayer Prompt: Pray for Chinese prisoner, Alimujiang Yimiti, who is in prison for 15 years for his faith. It is reported that he is doing well spiritually, but needs prayer for the antagonistic prison life. Read more about him here at prisoneralert.com.
