Our newest book just went live on Amazon Passing On The Move Of God To The Next Generation. I wanted you to be among the first to know about that. It is a book for the ages. That is not a sales pitch, but a godly conviction I have.
I’ve said it before, but writing for me is not a craft – rather a calling. I take it very seriously. The work of a real writer is never done. If he is not writing he is thinking of writing – and all the more so if he is called of God to write.
I self publish most of my books. The reason I don’t publish the traditional way is because most companies bottom line is money. Is the message marketable? Does the author have a large enough platform to sell a lot of books? In my case, the answer to both of those questions is a resounding “No”.
I’ve had companies turn me down because of reasons like, “the message of the book is not a felt need,” or “it’s too negative,” and the latest, “it doesn’t offer enough how-to’s and solutions.”
Yet the Bible says that the wisdom of God must be spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:14) and that the natural man cannot receive it. Most of my books are books written in the Spirit and from a place of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ (Eph. 1:17). This just means that the book is birthed in my spirit before it is delivered.
Self-publishing is an altogether different animal than traditional publishing. I don’t have a company circulating and distributing my book for me. That is my responsibility. I am not only the author of my books, but the publisher and entrepreneur.
What makes a book take off is when its message hits a nerve and resonates with the reader. The momentum of the voice of the people at a grass roots level then carries the message forward into lives and arenas and even other nations where someone receives a strong desire to translate the book into their language.
My latest book is such a book, and in my humble opinion, the prince of all my books. It has value but only for the spiritually minded. The effectual working of the power of God is attached to it. What does that mean? That means that there is an energy that will activate many of the readers into a higher dimension of God’s wisdom.
There is even an endorsement at the beginning of the book from the Lord. The Lord? Yes! My wife Carolyn who is a Holy Ghost woman of many years of prayer, received an inspired utterance from the Lord concerning the book. When is the last time you saw a book that, instead of having endorsements from men, had one from God. I know – that is pretty bold and may even seem arrogant to some to include something like that in a book, but we believe it is the Lord that led us this way. His counsel and leading can at times be unconventional.
My heart is to get this message out to the body of Christ near and far. I’d like to get a copy into the hands of every minister and hungry saint, but it’s going to take someone with a lot more influence and clout than I have. BUT GOD!
In the meantime, I have to utilize the small platform of followers and readers that I do have both on Charisma and here. The majority of the few hundred consistent readers that we have on here are spiritually minded people, or else they would not even take a second look at our books or follow this blog. But I know there are many others out there that need to be exposed to the message of this book. Will you help me get this message out?
“How?” you ask.
By first of all, purchasing a copy and reading it.
Secondly, if it touches your heart and is a blessing to you, kindly post a review on Amazon. Here is the link again: (Passing On The Move Of God To The Next Generation). The more reviews a book has the higher it rises in Amazon’s rankings and the more searches it appears on.
Thirdly, could you please recommend it to your friends?
As a matter of fact, if you purchase three copies – one for yourself and for two other friends, I will send you a free personalized copy of any of my other books of your choosing. Just inbox me on Facebook Messenger, or if we’re not friends or you don’t use Facebook, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If your email bounces for some reason just respond here in the comment section.
I want to assure you that this is not about a sale. It’s about a word from the Lord. He wants to move and do so much more for us than He is presently doing. But it’s not by our own might and power, but by the Spirit of the Lord. The money from the sales of all our books goes right back into publications, and if there happens to be any leftover, it goes toward our ministry traveling expenses.
The book is 234 pages, consisting of 38 mostly short chapters, and divided into three parts. You may recognize some of the chapters from past blogs I’ve written. The book is actually underpriced for the time being at $12.00 but is valued at $15. The Kindle version should be going live soon, too, and will be priced at either 6.99 or 7.99.
Below is a list of the contents in the book to whet your appetite. I know it’s a bit lengthy, but you can survey it and see if it a word that you might be interested in reading and promoting.
Thank you for your time today and for your readership. We deeply appreciate each one of you.
All For Jesus,
