It took years to finish what I started, and then another year to continue revising the drafts. But yesterday afternoon, it went live on Amazon.com's Kindle publishing platform! Then, lo and behold, someone parted with $6.99 of their hard-earned cash while I slept last night, becoming my first paying reader. I wish I knew who it was so I could write them a personal thank you, but Amazon does not provide such information. No matter; to whomever bought the first copy of my first novel, please know that I am forever grateful!
If anyone is interested, here is an excerpt from the beginning, and here is a link to the Kindle version of the book. It's a geopolitical religio-techno-thriller set in the North Atlantic, Egypt, and the Palestinian Territories. If you do read it, please let me know what you thought about it, either through an Amazon review or a comment here on Faith+Reason=Truth. The novel has a healthy dose of this very equation, so if you believe in faith, reason, and truth, perhaps the characters and story line will resonate with you. If so, I'd love to know!
