Wonders Never Cease

It's been quite a while since I've published a blog post, so I thought I'd break back into it by letting everyone know about my latest novel, Wonders Never Cease, scheduled for release May 11th from Thomas Nelson. For those of you eagerly awaiting the next installment in my Bug Man series you might be a little disappointed, because this is not a Bug Man novel--but I'm sure you won't be disappointed in this story.

It's still almost two months until the book releases, so I don't want to tell you everything about it just yet--just a few details to whet your appetite. I came up with the idea for this story several years ago, but I was so busy working on Bug Man stories that I never got around to writing it. I finally sat down to write it two years ago, but just as i was finishing it my publisher asked for another Bug Man story instead. So I immediately began writing Ends of the Earth and Wonders Never Cease has been sitting on a shelf awaiting publication ever since.

Well, it's finally coming out, and I can't wait.

Wonders is a very creative story that I like to describe as part comedy and part romance--that's right, romance. A man writing romance...scary thought, isn't it? And if romance is not your thing, then just think of it as a comedy. If you've enjoyed the humor in some of my Bug Man stories, you're really going to like this one. Believe me, it was a lot of fun to write.

But Wonders Never Cease isn't just a comedy; it has some very serious and thoughtful themes in it. I think that's how humor works best--to illuminate a serious theme.

I'll be telling you more about Wonders in the weeks to come, but for now I just wanted to tell you it's coming and give you a peek at the cover. I'd love to hear what you think of it, so please post a comment and give me your opinion. Thanks!
