smashwordsWell, my 3 month term with Amazon’s KDP Select is over. While I’ve given away a lot of free Kindle books [which gave me a lot of exposure], I’m not sure that trading exclusivity with the world’s largest e-retailer was worth sacrificing a broader distribution base. Fortunately, I’m now free to explore other options.

Johnny Came Home is still available on Amazon, but now that I’ve dropped KDP Select I’ve uploaded it to Smashwords.

That’s really, really good news for those of you who don’t own a Kindle. Smashwords offers .mobi [for Kindle devices and apps], ePub [Apple iPad/iBooks, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, and most e-reading apps including Stanza, Aldiko, Adobe Digital Editions, others], HTML, PDF, RTF, LRF [for older model Sony Readers that don’t support .epub], Palm Doc [PDB, for Palm reading devices], Javascript and Plain Text.

mayan-calendar-jchThe Mayan Long Calendar ends on December 21, 2012 and everyone’s seeing that as a sign of an impending Apocalypse. Well, not everyone. The Mayans were actually looking forward to it as something of a Golden Age per some scholars.

In any case, Christians need not fear this hocus pocus. Jesus adamantly stated even He didn’t know the day nor hour of His Return, only the Father alone – and certainly no man! [Matthew 24:36] That includes Nostradamus, the Mayans and anybody else who may be predicting a date for the End of Days. In fact, I can confidently state that if a particular sect, movement, religion or person gives you a date for the return of Christ or the End of Days, they’re a cult. Period. Avoid them.

But what are we to make of the end of the Mayan Calendar then? I dunno. I just want to point out that my calendar ends every year and, well, I just buy a new one and nothing happens. No Doomsday. No Golden Age. So I think it will prove to be nothing of consequence. At least, I hope so. There are always some nutjobs who try to make things happen…

In any case, if you’ve decided to stay indoors this December 21, 2012, know that I was thinking of you when I decided to offer Johnny Came Home for free on Kindle one last time. This “A Good Book for the End of the World” special starts at roughly midnite Pacific Standard Time on December 20, 2012 and extends right on through December 21, 2012 until about 11:59 PM PST.

It’s a great book, and I’m not the only one who thinks so! Reviewers are calling it action-packed from start to finish, that it was hard to put down and that they can’t wait for the sequel. More than one has commented that the characters are well-developed and believable, and that the book includes Biblical truth without being preachy. You’re gonna love it!

So over the next two days, while you’re waiting around to see if our world ends, get your free Kindle copy of Johnny Came Home and see how John Lazarus saves his!
