America’s Founding Fathers and the Bible: A Select Study on America’s Christian Origin by Stephen A. Flick, Ph.D. shares America’s rich biblical history and Christian heritage. Focusing on the American Revolution and afterwards, the author writes that America was founded on Christian principles and biblical practices that our Founding Fathers instituted, stemming from the formation of our government and the Continental Congress. Unwaveringly the author also reveals contrary claims by secularists and irreligionists that America was founded and “arose from the barrenness of secularism,” give way to an intriguing book that gives insight into America’s beginnings, formation as a nation and the underlying Christian legacy of America as a nation.
Divided into three sections: The Continental Congress and the Bible, Three Founding Fathers on the Bible, After the American Revolution, Conclusion: American Renaissance and coupled with three Reading Sections -  Defense of the use of the Bible as a SchoolBook, President of Congress Starts Bible Society & By the Bible or By the Bayonet, the author sheds light on the legacy of freedom, commitment to the Christian faith and the Bible, that helps readers understand and presents a brief glimpse into the motivations and truths from which our Founding Fathers relied upon.
With this perspective in mind, this book also provides viewpoints propagated from American Academia, jurisprudence and other disciplines that seem to ignore the facts. Further giving an overview of the initial thirteen colonies that sparked America’s growth and the first decrees of fasts and thanksgivings originally declared, coupled with the ensuing American Revolution, the author shows that America is a country that is nationally based upon the Bible. As the author states, Rather, both private and public writings overwhelmingly demonstrate that America's Founding Fathers intended and did establish American government upon biblical principles and practices.” 
This simple, yet historically accurate read comes highly recommended to all Americans, Patriots, Christians, college students and to the general public that serves as a reminder to get back to the foundational principles our country was founded on. Knowing your heritage and history is important and this book presents a keen understanding of “how” our great nation came to be. 
You may get your copy of America’s Founding Fathers and the Bible at Amazon, in Kindle and at other fine online bookstores. Visit Christian Heritage Fellowship for further information and some amazing ministry.

Though I am posting more on the Book marketing site, I have not commented on the California page in a long time. It is important to be included and in touch with one another. Many times I feel my opinions seem silly. Too, and I know many have not read my work, I have not read many of the others works, in order to make comments.  How is that possible? There are thousands of us. Have a great week.

Good Evening Everyone,

I am very excited to announce that, for a limited time only, I will be releasing a special hardcover omnibus edition of Books 1-4 of "The Noricin Chronicles," and I will be donating 100% of my author royalties for the sales of this limited edition to Book Aid International (, a literacy charity based in the United Kingdom.

Unfortunately, in order to maintain a reasonable list price for the book, I am unable to make it available through distribution channels such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. As such, the book will only available for order through At the moment, it looks like the list price will be about $26.00, but I am currently in discussions with LuLu to see if we might be able to bring that down a bit, since the sales of the book are going to a noble cause. I appreciate your patience and understanding!

This special hardcover edition, with cover artwork designed by yours truly, will only be available between September 3, 2011, and December 31, 2011, so be sure to grab a copy while you can! Stay tuned to this newsletter for more information - I will be sending out an update in September once the book is available and the final list price is set!

Happy reading,

Mark Sheldon

Good morning everyone!


I'm pleased to announce that "The Room of Death," Book 3 of "The Noricin Chronicles," is now here! To find out where you can order your copy today, visit:

Following in the steps of JS Chancellor and Neil Gaiman, to celebrate the release of "The Room of Death," for the month of May I'm making the e-book of "The Lost Boy" available for FREE! Yes, FREE! To take advantage of this promotion, just enter the discount code WD62W when you purchase the e-book at Smashwords ( ).

For those, like myself, who still prefer physical books, I'm also offering a promotion for the month of May to get 25% off of purchases of "The Lost Boy" ( ) and "The Gottlehrling Goblet" ( ). Just enter the discount code URJVH2NS upon checkout at CreateSpace!

I am also pleased to announce that "Scorpio Rising" - the fourth installment of "The Noricin Chronicles" - will be published on July 5th, 2011, and the mini book trailer for "Scorpio Rising" will be going on-line on June 1st, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for updates about those releases!

For those who knew about my previous plans to release all twelve books between now and December 2012, after careful consideration I have decided to revise my original release schedule. "Scorpio Rising" will be the last new release for 2011, however I will be publishing a special hardcover omnibus edition of books 1-4 toward the end of this year. Books 5-8 will be released over the course of 2012, and books 9-12 will be released over the course of 2013. I hope that doesn't disappoint too many readers, but the change of schedule really was necessary for my own sanity as well as other marketing considerations.

Happy reading,

Mark Sheldon

Sorry to hear all the prices are dropping on books. I know I'm swimming up stream, but if people want something they will pay for it!
