We continue our examination of the book of Ephesians by reviewing the second chapter of the book. Paul starts by reminding all of us where we have been and then reminding us of what God has done for us in Jesus. That the God who is rich in mercy and love has given us who were dead, life. And He did it “all on his own, with no help from us!” Furthermore, he brings all of us together in Jesus Christ — the great uniter — to make us all part of the house of God.
We also take a look at an older release from Narration by George. Seasons of Changefeatures a protagonist who uses Godly principles to lead a people out of the danger of slavery to a life of freedom.
This is the first of two weeks that we’ll spend sampling the latest offering from Narration by George. Avatars of Websurferis a compilation of 10 stories by four different authors about the world of Websurfer. Websurfer controls most of the computers in the world through an Artificial Intelligence named Sander. But, Sander is more than an AI; he’s also human. And he longs to break from the chains which bind him to his users in ways that are not to his liking. Take a listen to samples of the first five stories from this book. We’ll look at the next five next week.
What did we do in 2016? What’s coming for 2017? That’s the subject this week as we look back and look forward. I play samples from some of 2016’s audio book releases. And I summarize our schedule for the coming year. It’s a full one! Join me for the review and the preview.
In today’s podcast, we’re looking forward. If you’ve checked my Coming Attractions page, you’ll see that there are a number of books listed there. Just what am I going to be working on in the coming months? I seek to answer that question in this podcast with samples from three of the books aswell as some comments about others. There are romance stories, horror stories, a couple of sci-fi novels, and a steam punk offering. Join me as we take a look at what will be available to you for download in the coming months.
We’ve been looking at tales where the setting is an “other worldly” one. But, what if our main character is “other worldly” and set in our modern day world. We take a look at such a character today known as “Knighthawke”. Author Jerry Minchew created Knighthawkeas the main character for the book bearing his name and the sequel, Knighthawke: Vanishing Shadows. Michael is an ordinary young man with ordinary aspirations who is caught in an unbelievable set of events which make him over into an “other-worldly” character. Take a listen to some samples in today’s podcast!
Our look into tales of other worlds – even just altered earths – continues today with an in-depth look at The Destined. This is a tale of evil powers which arise every 700 years or so and threaten earth. To counter this threat, others are imbued with gifts to fight this evil and set things right again. This story tells the story of a High School Teacher and a few teens who have been imbued with this power. The question is, will they know how to use it to save the planet from total annihilation. It’s a such a fast moving action-adventure-other worldly tale that it’s hard to stop listening.
I’m in the midst of narration and production of the latest science fiction novel by Michael Miller, Second Earth, M-104. This is the third in a series of books about an alien who wishes to destroy earth and the scientists who are battling to keep earth alive. This battle takes a lot of technology – some of it “other worldly”. Michael takes the time to share some of this technology with us and how he thinks it might work.
I share a sample from the book as well as the author’s comments about writing in this genre and the research which goes into the writing of this exciting book.
Last week, we started looking at a pair of books by Michael Miller. These books – The Sixth Lobe and Born to Matter – tell the story of Danny Wilson and his unusual ability to read people’s sub-conscious thoughts. We met Danny as a boy last week. This week, we see him all grown up and tackling the real world. I play samples from the second book,Born to Matter. Join me for a fun ride.
We continue sampling from Books That Go Together; stories and characters that are sooo good that they cannot be told in one novel. Today, we start looking at the two book story of Danny Wilson in The Sixth Lobe and Born to Matter by Michael Miller.
In The Sixth Lobe we meet Danny and discover his condition – an extra lobe in his brain that allows him to read other people’s subconscious thoughts. This is a problem for young Danny; an opportunity for the adult Danny; and it creates interest from several parties as his abilities are discovered. How does he handle this situation?
We continue looking at books-that-go-together by sampling more from the Knighthawke series. Remember, books that go together are stories and characters that are so good that they cannot be confined to one novel. It takes multiples. The Knighthawkeseries is just one of the ones I’ve recorded.
Knighthawketells the story of an American hero, Michael Webber. In the second book, Knighthawke: Vanishing Shadows, Michael continues his quest for his identity and taking on missions for the Air Force, many involving international intrigue. Michael continues with his one mission – find his family.
