Hi, Reader Friends and New Subscribers! This is Dee today with the bimonthly “Oct 2017 Latest D.I. Telbat Novel News.” Lots of exciting things coming up so let’s dive in!
STEADFAST BOOK FOUR
Steadfast Book Four is out! It has a pretty serious but powerful message. Prepare to be challenged in the newest Steadfast Novella. David has also been working on Steadfast Book Five, and plans to follow it later with Book Six. Stay tuned to our posts!
FURY in the STORM – FREE Download SOON!
Fury in the Storm, Book One of The Leeward Set, is about ready to send to our Beta Readers! Because many have read this D.I. Telbat novel when it was under the previous title of Sea Scribe, we’ll be making this new version available as a FREE Download to everyone for a LIMITED TIME! It’s the same exciting story, but we’ve given the book a new title, a new book cover, AND a new sequel! We’re still working on our November sale dates. Visit our Sales Page here for those details as they become available. And tell your friends!
TEARS in the WIND
Tears in the Wind, Book Two of The Leeward Set, has begun the editing journey. It was recently read by David’s first proofreader, who said, “Remarkable!” and gave it a big thumbs up. We are excited to get this amazing child soldier rescue story into your hands! We plan to have both books of this set published close together so you can move quickly from one to the next. Watch our posts for news as it comes.
David has jumped into working full-time on Book Three of The COIL Legacy. Distant Harm is on our cover designer’s schedule for Nov. Realistically, we think it will be January before the book is ready. But oh, my! I think it will be well worth the wait! Visit our Distant Harm page on our site and read a short blurb about the story. We’ll be adding a longer description to the page soon.
LAST DAWN TRILOGY
David has finally settled on a title for his new series—the one he previously called his “epic” or “mega” series (drum roll, please!)—The Last Dawn Trilogy! Dawn of Affliction, Book 1, has already been written, and is due out early 2018 (not far off!). Book 2 is titled Dawn of Oppression; Book 3 is Dawn of Pursuit.
This is the book series in which David told us he would be merging the COIL and STEADFAST characters into the Steadfast timeline. (Read about that in this post, “Merging COIL and STEADFAST.”) The Steadfast Series novellas bridge the interim period between The COIL Legacy novels and the Last Dawn Trilogy. Though all these novel series can be read as standalone series, they will be most enjoyed in the order he wrote them. [Series order: 1) The COIL Series; 2) The COIL Legacy; 3) The STEADFAST Series; and 4) The Last Dawn Trilogy.) You’ll recognize characters from past novels and find God’s message clear in all of them. We pray the Lord blesses you though David’s writing. He will be posting a writing update for you soon about his plans.
WE APPRECIATE ALL DAVID’S READING FRIENDS! Most of you know that we offer our subscribers to be Beta Readers for us. That entails reading David’s books in a free PDF format, often before publication (but not always), so we can get your feedback and comments on his books. We also ask if you would kindly submit your honest (long or short) comments/review on Amazon as soon as the novel goes live there. This tremendously helps readers take notice when they see someone else has already read and appreciated the book. Just let Dee know in an email if you’d like to join our wonderful Beta Reader Group! [Special thanks and blessings to Karen, Shana, Athena, and Gayle for recent reads/comments/reviews. Your input helps make David’s books even better! I’ll be contacting you soon about Fury.]
Since the last I shared with you about COIL Extractions: a Christian Short Story Collection, Book 1, the eBook is also NOW FREE from AMAZON! They finally price-matched it so you can now find it at all retailers as a FREE download. This short eBook is a good sampler of D.I. Telbat’s writing and storytelling, and a good one to introduce your friends to David Telbat.
That’s all I have for this time, Friends. I’ll be back the end of December with another update. May the Lord bless you as you serve Him in your own circles. Thank you for reading “Oct 2017 Latest D.I. Telbat Novel News.”
COMING UP: Join us Monday for David’s post for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted, “How to Pray for the Persecuted Church.” And the following week, we’ll have his short story, “Safe and Secure.”
