  1. Hi Ben,

    I have a Christian fiction review blog at Reviews by Peter (www.christianfictionreviewguru.blogspot.com.au) and would like to offer you a guest post on my blog. I discovered The Ephesus Scroll advertised as free on freereadfeed.com (although on Amazon it is < $1.00). I have checked out the others in the series and listened to your book launch video of The Roman Gospel. I plan to review TES (have added it to my list of reviews pending. I am very taken with what you have written in these three novels and the motivation for you doing so.

    I was wondering if you would consider writing a post about the background to these novels, your motivation for writing them and their significance to us as Christians. However, you know your work, so I can leave it up to you to write what you like on this topic.

    Please consider using the following criteria for your post (as a guide):

    -photo of the author, ( I can get this from Amazon or your website, or you provide a different one)
    -author bio (I can get this from your website)
    -book cover and description (I can use these from Amazon), 
    -any graphics of the characters, weaponry, environment, book trailer videos or other relevant video clips etc
    -the reason the book was written, Christian/biblical/themes, 
    -author's social networking platforms/author websites, 
    -specific excerpt(s) to highlight themes, action or essence of the book and please add the reason you chose this excerpt(s), 
    -anything else you would like to add
    -Consider a rafflecopter giveaway (www.rafflecopter.com) or other such competition of your choice. (optional)

    I live in the Melbourne suburb of Point Cook. It is so good to support and encourage a Christian author in the same Metro area (I presume that as you work at the Melbourne School of Theology)

    I am looking forward to publishing this post and therefore promoting your novels.

    Regards

    Peter

  2. Hi Ben,
    My name is Parker J. Cole and I showcase Christian authors worldwide. I saw your work through Peter Younghusband’s blog. I am looking forward to reading your books.

    I am an advocate of Christian historical fiction as Peter will tell you and I see your books as part of the growing base of apologetic fiction. I’ve interviewed several authors in the past who use fiction as a base for apologetic work (which is similar to what you are doing although in this case, it’s more of a teaching aid) and would be honored to give you a platform.

    A gentleman you may want to connect with, and I’ve had him on my show plenty of times, is Lewis Ben Smith. He also writes historical fiction. Networking is huge for authors which is why I mention this. I think you both should network together but that is completely up to you. If you’d like to view his blog, it’s here: https://lewisliterarylair.blogspot.com/2017/10/the-flower-brand-new-horror-story-for.html

    As for me, I’d like to invite you to be on my podcast. It airs on Tuesdays at 7 pm Eastern time. The show lasts for an hour. Callers are invited to call in and comment or ask questions. We also interact with our social media as well. There is the option to pre-record the show too.
