I just have to share a really really COOL e-mail from a ten year boy ‘down under’ who wrote to me this week about my novel, the Order of the Ancient. He was given the PDF version from Kidology.org (PDF version no longer available) by his children’s pastor and read it.
Subject: Hi Man! Your Book Rocks!
Hi! My Pastor Printed Me A Copy Of ”Order of the Ancient”, And I Am STILL Reading It! It Is By Far On My Top 10 List Of Books.(Published Or Not!) Hey! I Was Thinking, My Name Is Jordan, Yes I Am A Christian, And I Am 10 Yrs Old, And Thought, Maybe We Could Start ”Remnant.org”, And To Sign Up They Need To Tell Us The Very Important Parts Of Their Lives, So We Can Tell Them Their Name E.g. Josiah, Jeremiah, Shaphan , Rahab etc. It Would Be Real Nice To Know You, Your Obviously A Very Strong Christian,….(info on how to chat online and his MSN name)…. You Probably Don’t Have Time Now For Someone You Don’t Know, But It Would Be Great To Get To Know You.
Here is the Icthus he sent me to complete:
I replied with this:
I wrote back and promised I’d send him a free signed copy of the book once it was in print. Next I get an e-mail from the children’s pastor who gave him the book…. (Pastor Glenda from Highway Christian Church in Ormeau Queensland Australi) I guess Jordan called her as soon as he got my e-mail. Jordan has since written and told me that he started a “Remnant Club” at his school! How cool is that??
This is so encouraging because the book isn’t even in print yet, and yet it is making an impact in the lives of kids, and literally all over the world. The #1 purpose of the book was to show kids that being a Christian is as exciting as any Great Story, and has REAL potential for drama, danger, and adventure!! I am hoping that this book will get kids all over the world excited about being a Follower of the Redeemer, and that they would be challenged to Seek the Sovereign!
THE BOOK WILL BE IN PRINT NEXT WEEK… THE PRE-ORDER SUPER SALE IS ALMOST OVER! Order copies now at a HUGE saving, PLUS FREE SHIPPING!
