I know, I know… It’s now been months since I bought the domain name and posted a note to say I’d be right back to actually sort the site.
Yes, of course I have reasons. And excuses.
Unfortunately, www.eden-undone.com doesn’t understand either of those. And I, of course, don’t really understand WordPress… ooops.
So I have no idea which of the currently-empty boxes this will show up in, when I click “publish”. But hopefully you’ll be able to see it!
And meanwhile… what are my updates?
Well, if you’ve been following my Facebook page – or even (to a lesser extent) my Twitter feed, you’ll know that things are gathering momentum.
Eden Undone is due to be released in the States in the autumn (I won’t say watch THIS space, but do watch my Facebook page!) and before that, lots still to do. And so much going on that I scarcely know where to start.
I fumbled a first draft of a book trailer (first draft of book trailer – though it seems to have lost its “What if” caption somewhere along the line!) but fear not – an amazing friend, Stuart Diekmeyer, has taken pity and is even now crafting something MUCH much better.
Why a book trailer? Well, I’ve realised that I need to do some crowdfunding, in order to raise Eden Undone’s profile ahead of its American release. And from what I gather, crowdfunding appeals need trailers 🙂 All part of a steep learning curve!
I’ve been interviewed – by Premier Radio interview with Premier Christian Radio 3 Aug 2015 – I’m on from about the 40-minute mark. (I’m hoping to have an edited, minus ads version, ready soon.) and by St John’s College Cambridge interview 5 Aug 2015 : and my interview by Dr Peter Enns (www.peteenns.com) is likely to be posted in about ten days’ time…
My book has been solicited – with the caveat that he has no idea when he’ll actually get around to reading it – by Wm Paul Young, author of The Shack; given the highest of praise by Wade and Rachelle Burleson of Istoria Ministries, and apparently blessing those who read it, which is simply glorious.
And I’ve finally finished reading out the whole novel, for a future audio version

And a wonderful, amazing, AWESOME launch team is assembling itself to help with Eden Undone’s American release – so if you’d like to join the team, I’d love to hear from you.
Oof… how’s that for summarising the past few months in fewer than 41
