It's About Time!

For the first time in what seems like months I have written two days in a row, pumping out 19 pages of From The Deep. Now that I've settled into a bit of a routine, the pages should continue to flow and I suspect that for this novel, which is fully researched and outlined already, I should be finished in just under two months from now... Of course, we'll be having a son in about that same time frame, so I might put in some extra night writing to get it done early, because we all know I won't be writing much in the weeks after he's born!

There are 56 days from now until he's due. Chop out some weekends. We'll say I've got 45 days to write the rest of the book. My novels are an average of 400 pages. So... that's roughly 9 pages a day. My highest ever was 25 and I average 12, so it should be doable...but if little Solomon is anything like big sister Aquila, he's bound to be early. We'll see.

The official page count right now is 34. (5 chapters). The official word count is: 8194.

Monumentally Naive or Just Plain Right? Would America exist without Jesus? Without Christianity?

I have received a few comments through e-mail and online reviews about a certain aspect of The Didymus Contingency being naive. What part you might ask? First a small part of background for readers who may not have read the novel. Here's the extremely shortened premise: A guy goes back in time to disprove the story of Jesus.

One of the dangers of going back to the time of Jesus and even more so, proving him a fraud is brought up in the book. Think future ramifications of a world without Jesus, without Christianity. The conclusion in the book is that the United States of America wouldn't exist without Jesus, without Christianity. This seems like a no brainer to me. Here's why:

Countless marriages throughout the past 2000 years since Jesus walked the earth were forged under a common belief system, Christianity. Couples met, married and bore children who might not have done so without this belief system in place. This alone is enough because a huge majority of the people on earth today would no longer exist. The founding fathers of the U.S. would not have existed. To think that someone would have filled their shoes and thought of the same concepts that formed this country is far fetched to say the least.

More than that, the principles of this country and it's founding fathers were steeping in Christianity. In God We Trust was not written about some random God, it was referring to Jesus Christ. As are all the mentions to God in all of this countries sacred documents. While many people today are working hard to have these things removed from public places and historic documents, it doesn't change history. America couldn't possibly exist without Christianity.

Now there is another line that bugs people, where one characters says, in essence, that if you take away the other world religions from America and the country would still exist. This doesn't mean that the current state of America would be the same. It wouldn't be. Today, America is a melting pot for every religion and belief. But the foundations of this country were built upon a singular belief system--Christianity. It's simple history. Other world religions that are huge today, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc were practically non-existent in the western world for the duration of human history. They had little influence over the western cultures that formed and fought over the Americas. Thus it can be easily said that without the other current world religions, America, would still exist. or at least it would be more likely. But take away Jesus, remove him from history and America and many other great nations cease to exist. In fact, the world could have very well remained under Roman rule!

So the idea presented in the novel is not only not naive, it is well thought out, and I would suggest that those writing or reviewing the book put some thought into their comments before their anti-Christian fervor forces them to make statements that are simply...naive. : )

There. My first blog tirade is complete. Feel free to comment. If I'm insane, I need to know!

Was Superman Returns Inspired by The DaVinci Code?

After reading that, you all may think I'm insane. But here me out. FYI, don't read if you haven't seen Superman or read/seen DaVinci. Plot spoilers abound.

OK, basically Superman Returns is a messiah story, almost perfectly emulating the life of Christ. Kal-el, aka Clark Kent, aka Supes is according to Lex Luther, a god. The only son of Jor-el, sent to earth to "show us the way." Jesus often reffered to himself as "the way." So Superman has come to earth, a god among men, but also a man. He feels pain, he cries, he loves. Half god, hald man. Just like Jesus. Following me?

But then Superman must give his own life, willingly, to save humanity. He dies in the movie, only to return to life. This is all classic messiah story elements previously seen in Neo from the Matrix. However, there is a new element in Superman.

He has a son. Here comes the DaVinci Code part. In Superman, Lois Lane is basically Superman's Mary Magdaline. Just as many find it impossible for Jesus to have had children, it has also been a long held belief by most comic book fans that Superman could not possibly father a child...though for more...physical reasons. If she survived the...how can I say it....conception of the child, he (the son) who most definitely have killed her during the nine month pregnancy. Anywho, so Superman having a son is a very Dan Brown twist to this film. I think it works better for Superman than Jesus...it's certainly much cooler. That kid can sure chuck a piano!

So there you have it. Was Superman having a son inspired by the idea of Jesus having children? Have we as a society so much so embraced the fiction that Dan Brown created that it is subconciously entering our messiah stories? Cud to chew, my friends. Cud to chew.

PS - Books are going great. POD People doing well. Didymus Contingency doing well. From the Deep is finnally out of limbo...in rehab...but getting stronger every day.

Thursday, July 06, 2006

Well, we're all moved in now...mostly. There are still boxes strewn around the house, but at least there isn't any black mold attacking us! So, that problem is solved.

As for the writing front, here's the news.

The Didymus Contingency has been taken on by a second publisher--Booksurge. Now, I know what some of you are thinking, "You have to PAY Booksurge to be published by them." Normally this is true, but not this time my friends. Booksurge is printing a second edition of The Didymus Contingency with a nice new back cover, spine and a new low price of $15.99, which is light years ahead of the current $18.00 price tag. The print quality also looks nicer, with bright white pages. Even better, Booksurge is covering all costs, acting more like a traditional publisher, is paying me great royalties, and is going to "promote the heck out of it." The ISBN for the new edition is: 1419640313. Here's a link to see it on Amazon (the reviews from the old copy should transfer over soon). http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1419640313/ref=ed_oe_p/104-8132664-8412746?ie=UTF8

POD People is up on Amazon, Barnes&Noble, etc and is available for sale! Unfortuonatly, Amazon has yet to post the cover image (though B&N has). The desciptive text has also not yet appeared, but it should be up soon. The book retails for $14.99, but there are copies available from other sellers through Amazon for as little as $12.26. Here's the link:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0978655109/qid=1152243209/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/104-8132664-8412746?s=books&v=glance&n=283155

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?z=y&isbn=0978655109&itm=4

You can also find out more about the book, at the book's publisher, Breakneck Books, here: www.breakneckbooks.com . They have a fancy new website featuring my mug on the front page. Though I've been told that will soon change as they've brought on two new authors.

I think that's it for now. With the move done, writing on From the Deep will once again commence...as much as it can with a toddler and a second on the way!

OTHER GREAT AUTHORS

I'm a huge fan of the genre I write, and read books by the following authors like they were my Grandma Vincent's homemade chocolate bon-bons on Christmas Eve. If you're a fan of any of these authors, you'll feel right at home within the pages of my books.

jamesrollins.com - My favorite author, and my biggest supporter, James Rollins, bestselling author of BLACK ORDER and THE JUDAS STRAIN can do no wrong in my book. I've been a fan since reading SUBTERRANEAN maybe seven years ago.

prestonchild.com - Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child are the fantastic writing duo that brought us THE RELIC, DEEP STORM and BOOK OF THE DEAD. Whether they're writing together or solo, these guys don't miss.

matthewreilly.com - Matthew Reilly's novels are basically action-adventure/thrillers on speed. I love his creative and his non-stop pace. His first novel, CONTEST is not only my favorite of his, but it was also originally self-published...no wonder I like him!

stevealten.com - Steve Alten thinks big...big creatures that is. I discovered his books about two years ago and read one after the other until I ran out, finishing with THE LOCH, which I have to admit was a major inspiration (along with his MEG series) for the novel I just finished writing. I am now proud to say that I am publishing the next book in the MEG series, HELL'S AQUARIUM through my publishing company, Variance.

crichton-official.com - Not including his two most recent book, Michael Crichton is the master of science based thrillers. JURASSIC PARK, THE LOST WORLD, TIMELINE, SPHERE and PREY all rank among my favorite novels.

scottsigler.com Scott is not only a cool guy, but he also writes awesome novels. Ancestor, which I blurbed, is one of my favorite new novels. Look for his future books, INFESTED and NOCTURNAL from Crown Books.

jackdubrulbooks.com - When you're looking for action adventure novels, Jack DuBrul's character, Phillip Mercer, can't be beat. And now that DuBrul is teaming up with the granddaddy of the genre, Clive Cussler, we'll be seeing a lot more from him.

stelpavlou.com - Not only is Stel a stand up Brit and a really nice guy, but he's also written one of the finest books of the last 10 years. DECIPHER is an amazing and smart thriller.
