Well, it's been a little over a month since Critical Times was released, and I have to say that I've been overwhelmed by the support. As I'd written previously on this blog, I was initially very nervous during the writing process, imagining that some of the story's elements would be a little too dark for my readers. But so far, no complaints there. If anything, it seems that the sobering tone of the book has got many of our friends thinking about how they'll fare during the Great Tribulation, and what events in particular might be particularly difficult for them personally. Although we can only guess as to what challenges lay ahead, any sort of meditation that leads to this kind of self-analysis is a good thing, like a soldier inspecting his armor before the big battle.
So, this post is here to say Thank You! Thanks for your support, both through purchases on Amazon, comments here on the blogs, and of course, emails and donations. Although I am sometimes bad about replying quickly, I do take the time to read all of my correspondence, and greatly appreciate each and every message.
I'm also thankful for the reviews that have been posted on Amazon. It really means a lot when others take the time to leave a few words for other potential readers. I can only imagine how reluctant I would be to read a book from a stranger claiming to be a Witness online, so having those comments there to reassure the friends that everything is on the up and up is a big help. While I don't want to pressure anyone to read any of my stories, I certainly don't want someone to misunderstand my purpose.
So, what's next, you ask?
Not to fear! A fourth book (and hopefully more) is in the works. It's in the very early stages, but it's shaping up to be an interesting story, something that I think many readers of the previous books will find both slightly familiar while new and exciting. More details to come in the near future, so stay tuned...
