…I am going to direct you all elsewhere, to folks who are getting it done.
Is this a lazy way to post? Well, yes, but not as lazy as posting nothing. Truth be told, I am still working on the revised version of Stronghold as well as the latest draft of To Retreat From Romance, but overall my mental energies outside of the office (and to some extent, in it) have been spent on eBay. I am flipping a haul of LEGO DUDES to cover some costs following the loss of my wife’s income, and my writing has suffered as a result. I apologize. I am getting a better handle on the sales workload, and I should be running more smoothly come September.
Fortunately, the body of Christ has many parts, some of which are producing great regular content.
- Two of my buddies recently launched a blog, GAMING WITH SWAG, which focuses on collectibles and gaming for the 30-something family man. The site is already a major success, so if gaming is your gig, check ’em out.
- I’ ve also been spending some time listening to some hot podcasts from the SCI-FI CHRISTIANS, Matt Anderson and Ben De Bono. Ben and I have been in touch on e-mail, and I hope to feature both hosts on the In God’s Image interview series.
- I also continue to keep up with the content of Ben Avery at Strangers and Aliens, Nathan James Norman and The Untold Podcast, and Tyler Smith at More Than One Lesson.
- Also, one of my favorite Christian Rappers, JGIVENS, is prepping the release of his new album from HUMBLE BEAST RECORDS. If you don’t know his music, check out him and give a listen to the others on his label: Propaganda, Jackie Hill Perry, and Beautiful Eulogy.
- Been seeing some great articles from DesiringGod and Relevant Magazine recently, as well
- And I have been following The Center for Medical Progress anti-abortion videos exposing the profitable trafficking of human body parts through Planned Parenthood. I have watched videos both edited and unedited, and it’s been a truly haunting and difficult series. Make no mistake, legal or no, this practice is deplorable. WARNING: THESE VIDEOS CONTAIN GRAPHIC CONTENT.
So there you have it, my friends. I may not be getting the goods out to everyone (although I have been keeping up my FLICKR series, Tour of Middle Earth), but brothers and sisters across the country are still making it happen. Please check out the links and support some great great artists, writers, and fellow creators.
