How Did a Month Go By?!?

I can't believe it has been so long since I have blogged! With the release of "Judge of Israel" and the ongoing marketing that goes with that, preparing the 2nd edition for print, trying to keep up with a heavy freelance writing schedule, and getting reading for school to start, I've been swamped.

I just wanted those of you who follow my blog to know that I will begin publishing articles again soon. You may have noticed that on my website, www.timothywilkinson.net, I have added a new toolbar and will be making a few other changes shortly.

Also, "Judge of Israel" will be available soon from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and other online distributors. I will also begin doing book signings and presentations on "The Origin of King Arthur" and on "Daily Life in Bible Times" at various locations around northwestern Washington.

Initial responses to "Judge" have been good--some people like it better than "Prophet;" so far the majority like "Prophet" better. One of the strange things about authoring (at least for me) is that while "books are never finished--just abandoned" I do tend to be happy with the published versions of my work. I write books that I would want to read. And, once enough time has passed, I can enjoy picking them up and reading portions of my own work.

I guess in the end that is my real goal--to write a book that I would enjoy reading. I love the story I am telling, though that story is not, at its heart, my own. It is a story that I feel begs to be retold--not just be me, but over and over again.
