Dear Friends, this is David Telbat today with our June 2018 Novel Update. So, some of you have read my new suspense/thriller, Distant Harm, and you’re asking yourself, “Whatever will David do with COIL now?” Well, it turns out that since I’m David, I can tell you where the COIL adventure is going! 😉 Hang on for a wild ride through heroism and challenge, heartache and faith, because—COIL is just getting its second wind!
The End or the Beginning?
The end of The COIL Legacy Series with Distant Harm is really a passage into a whole new genre of storytelling that will continue with the Caspertein family. For some time, I’ve been building up to the Last Dawn Trilogy to cast all of our beloved COIL characters into America’s most desperate hour—where Christians can shine their brightest!
There is still so much to discover between the Caspertein and Dowler families. Remember Rudy Caspertein in Distant Contact, Book 1? He’ll be a grand figure in the future. And we haven’t seen the last of Wynter Caspertein and one-eyed Wes Trimble. Luigi has a big part to play alongside Corban. And Jenna Dowler? Just wait until you see how this young woman impacts the world!
Will persecution continue to be a D.I. Telbat novel theme?
Yes, Christian persecution will remain a big part of the COIL storyline going forward. But I have already begun to take the foreign aspect of persecution to make it applicable to us here in the West—because Bible prophecy says Christians will be persecuted everywhere.
Will the Last Dawn Trilogy tie in with The Steadfast Series?
Yes, absolutely! The Last Dawn Trilogy will tie in with The Steadfast Series, but much needs to develop in San Diego for the two to be able to merge. I don’t want to spoil it for you so I’d best not say any more! 😉
And if you don’t see your favorite COIL character appear right away in the Last Dawn Trilogy, just be patient. I have some novellas coming that will fill in the gaps, so I believe there will be satisfaction for everyone!
May we all take what steadfast faith we find in fiction like this, and live it out daily in reality!
Thank you so much for your continued feedback. It’s the only way I know if I hit the mark.
See you on the next page!
