  2. Write a blog post using the voice of one of your main characters.
  3. Have that main character tell some side stories not included in the novel.
  4. Write about the setting - time and/or place. Use some of the research you did to ensure that your novel was accurate.
  5. Invite your readers to review your book. Feature their testimonials on your blog.

The rise and fall of good versus evil catapult readers into an exciting futuristic space thriller as the end of the Second Age of the Quintástraya draws near.

As the depleted resources of Captain Asafa’s ship and crew, additionally weathering many weary battles, Captain Asafa remains steadfast. Along the way, the author takes the readers to exploits, galaxies and planets. Abba El is introduced as the all-loving Father. Reflecting Biblical figures and parallels embodied in the Bible, this is a Sci-Fi thriller has many unique characters and inspiring scenes that depict a multi-dimensional existence that draws readers into an epic battle for as good that is surely colliding with evil forces that threatens the life of every inhabitant and “every single human and alien race in the Quintástraya.”

You will love this read.

Many Will Be Deceived
Russell Ian Jones
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
Many Will Be Deceived by Russell Ian Jones is eye-opening read that speaks of Jesus’ return, the Last Days and the co-mingling of false teachings, influences and interpretation of Scripture that has led to a widespread deception amongst Christians. 
.
His cover relates broadly what he focuses on, and as a Bible apologist, the author is one that is interested in science and history. Considering history and Scripture remains as the primary focus of his writings that abide by Biblical truth. Well-researched, this book also seeks to investigate Jesus’ claims that many false teachers will come. Within this, the objective is to instill a desire in the reader to seek the truth, the Holy Spirit and the absolute truth of Scripture. Additionally speaking of a false gospel that is preached and the Church at large that hides its head in the sand (thus the cover picture), teaching on such subjects as the Rapture, Evolution, the age of the Earth, the Great Tribulation, and much, much more make this book a great eschatological read that seeks to expose Gnostism, and many false teachings that have influenced the Early Church until now.
.
The author begins from the start of the book by not discounting Satan’s master plan to deceive and corrupt God’s master plan for creation, as noted in Genesis. Consequently, three main scripture verses are the focus of the book (Matthew 24:10-11; Rev. 1-3; Rev. 2:7). The reader can look these up, but in summation these three scriptures speak of those, even the elect that will be deceived and that it is important to study and know what the Bible says. With that said, the last verse (Rev. 2:7) speaks of listening to what the Spirit of God is speaking to the churches. The author gives introduction to the Antichrist spirit that is within the world, but speaks that there is hope for the one that overcomes and endures. Giving an analyzation of the early writings of the Ante-Nicene Fathers, this book investigates the ancient writings that were in defense of Christ’s teachings during the first three hundred years of the Early Church. The author advocates that Christians would be wise to investigate what the undercurrent of certain theologies came from and to know their history and Bible in regards to Christianity.
.
Offering a firm Biblical perspective, this book presents the teachings of Jesus as stated in the gospels and helps readers understand why many will be deceived and what sources of false teaching infiltrated and caused denominational division. A highly recommended read for all Christians to consider, ponder and understand the history and other influences that will bring them to their own research of Scripture, so they may know for themselves what the Bible says and what the Spirit of God speaks.  A highly informative read and one the author urges every Christian to consider.

Little Sister’s First Christmas by Bob Connally shares a short and endearing story from the perspective of TJ, Maria’s 7 year-old big brother.
.
This year, it’s Maria’s first Christmas. TJ really wants to make sure his little sister has what she wants for Christmas. During a trip to the Mall and a visit with Santa, TJ decides that he must take charge for Maria (since she can’t talk) and write Santa a letter! Santa said that was fine as long as he sends the letter before Christmas Eve. 
.
Life was really busy after that with decorating, Christmas cooking and school plays, that he forgot.  All of the sudden Christmas Eve arrived.  TJ felt guilty and feels like his sister won’t even get a present for Christmas at all. He continues to worry and wonder what to do. He even has bad dreams about the way things could end up.
.
During the course of all this going on in TJ's mind, his parents are unaware of what TJ is experiencing and all of those feelings of guilt come out Christmas morning and TJ finds out that his fears were unfounded. Maria received many presents from Santa and all of their grandmas and grandpas. 
.
TJ draws a special picture for Maria of the yellow hippo that TJ believed Maria had wanted that he saw in the Mall. Hearing those first words, “Big Brubber” made all the difference as TJ learns the value of love. Love is special. It is to be cherished and on Christmas, the most important thing is to have love and unity in a family. 
.
This story encourages all to be a family, and to love one another deeply, to love Jesus, to enjoy going to church in a simple genre – through the heart and soul of an innocent 7-year-old boy named TJ.

Redeemed to Live! by Debi Capito-Young shares an incredible love story of redemption and restoration of the life and family of Debi Capito-Young.
.
A Northwest country girl at heart, Debi grew up Washington State in a strong Christian family that gave her a solid foundation with Jesus. As an adult, tragedy struck, and her 10 year- old daughter was suddenly gone in a tragic accident without saying good-bye.
.
Debi retells the journey of heartbreak and loss from that fateful day in October that changed everything. Shattering and heart-wrenching, this book will grab your heart from the beginning as she describes the events that led up to a loss so great, that it took her down a road of despair and hopelessness from which she thought there would be no end. Revealing that broken dreams and shattered lives can be rebuilt again, this book deals with such subjects as: grief, loss, hopelessness, despair and gives readers hope through the restoring and redeeming love of Jesus.
.
Her journey brings readers the reality of God’s presence, His heavy transforming glory and gives insight on how to become unstuck that brought Debi and her family hope, ministry and purpose. Her message is about finding that abundant life that Jesus speaks about in John 10:10 and leading others into that same joy to get them unstuck from wherever they may find themselves. Real and raw emotions flourish from the beginning, and chapter two, coupled with the following chapters highlight “golden nuggets”, a trip to the Toronto Blessing in Canada and much more that changed her families’ lives. Along this path the author gives awe-inspiring accounts of the supernatural, turning hearts to Jesus. Jesus, angels, coupled with dreams and encounters kept her alive and sane, and the Holy Spirit
transformed both her and her husband, catapulting them into ministry.
.
edeemed to Live! is one of those amazing true-life testimonies of tragic loss that brings the reality of Heaven and life beyond this Earth into better perspective. From this book readers gain a better understanding of the warfare that is waged here on Earth. Although tragic, her journey is shared with a genuine heart and without embellishment. As you will learn, Heaven is more real than you ever thought, God is closer than you ever thought and those who find this abundant life in Jesus are made alive again in Him. This is an amazing story of RESTORATION.
.
Highly recommended for anyone who has suffered any tragic loss in their life and for those that need help getting back on track to living again. The encounters of the supernatural, coupled with encouragement and Biblical wisdom, will help others to have hope again, knowing that Jesus is our Comforter, our Redeemer and very much a part of all of our lives! Redeemed to Live! by Debi Capito-Young is available at Amazon and in Kindle

Abduction: How Liberalism Steals our Children’s Hearts and Minds by Steven Feazel and Dr. Carol M. Swain reveals an intriguing read that will shock you. Exposing the deception posed as “Liberalism” that is infiltrating our educational system, media, and political arenas, the authors shed light on the effect of this agenda upon our future generation and the youth of America.
.
This sway is far from God and godly principles, as the book brings readers up-to-date of the trends of our American culture that have led us into Liberalism, they candidly reveal the undertow that is sweeping across our culture and country. Consequently, more and more of society is swinging to the far Left that brings a modernized, humanistic and secular worldview that is currently leading our innocent children (and society) as a whole, down a corrupt path. Disguised as Liberalism (and known as “The New Morality”), this has become the Christian faith’s new enemy. The acceptance of this agenda has become so entrenched in our society, the authors have written a book to arm parents and to announce that it’s time to fight for our future generations before it’s too late. 
.
This new mindset known as The New Morality, as the authors give accounts of events and statistics, state that Liberalism is destabilizing the family and future generations through the propagation of lies, some subtle in degrees, that degrade society and is leading our youth to make wrong choices apart from God. Historically, this path of destruction sways far from biblical truth and masquerades that evil is in fact “good”, and if it feels right, do it. Revealing agendas of certain institutions in the educational system, under the guise of Liberalism and all for political gain, this book brings a deeper insight into a mindset that steals our children’s hearts and minds away from the truth.
.
This is an important book for our society and comes highly recommended to every parent that stands for righteousness, who desires an America that embraces our Founding Fathers’ vision of America and to those parents that want to see strong Christian families to become the majority again.
