THE GOSPEL OF LUKE: CHAPTER 2

The Gospel of Luke tells the whole story of the Christ. It is done in 24 chapters. Consequently, every day in December I will be posting a new chapter of Luke until we get to Christmas. It is my hope that you share this with your friends, church, family and social media. 

It is also my hope that you will not take me as crass for listing my two newest audio books for sale below the Luke video. This is how I make my living, and if you like the way I read Luke, I suspect you’ll like the way I read these two fantastic books. The first is fiction by a best-selling author who stepped away for 10 years. He must have been perfecting his craft for this book is excellent. The second book is an auto-biography of a young submarine officer in the late sixties. I identified with this one as well, for I spent more than a minute of my life on the 637 class submarines doing my job as a spook. 

Now, for the Gospel of Luke:

A Great Audio Book Release Today

First, my apologies for no fiction last week. I got bogged down in the “day/retirement not a job job” and lost track of time. But, and I promise this, I was being well behaved.

Today it is my pleasure to announce the release of my latest Audio Book from Audible/Amazon: POOPIE SUITS & COWBOY BOOTS.

What?  Well, you have to read the book to get the reference to the title. Better yet, listen to the version I recorded. The “Poopie Suit” is the one-piece mechanics garb we wore on the boats back in my day. Everyone wore it! Comfortable, hid stains, and could be worn for weeks without washing. Maybe that last part wasn’t by choice, but when the washer was broken…

Anywho, it is a great audio book. I worked on it for the last few months and now it’s ready just in time for you to gift it to the veteran/bubblehead/submarine enthusiast in your life. 

Another Week Of Driving

My life has been different for the last two months. My wife had a total shoulder replacement in September, and with very few exceptions I’ve been on the road at least 5 days a week taking her to appointments of one sort or another.

As a result, there is a 4-5 hour hole blown in the middle of every day where I’m behind the wheel.

This has meant that I am not allowed to hide in the office writing, doing audio books, or eating licorice all day. Instead, I get up, brush the fangs, feed the dog, let the dog out, drink coffee, and check emails. I then either help her do physical therapy or sneak out and walk a few miles (just restarted that in training for a 1/2 marathon, more on that later) before hopping behind the wheel. If I’m up to speed, I even remember to bring Chewy inside or take him along. He loves riding in the car.

At the end of the day, I’m usually too beat to cook, so it’s been more restaurants than usual the last two months. I’m getting fat as a result. But this week holds out great potential on the cooking front. Today’s steak and ‘tater dinner were just the start. 

The point is, I’m sorry that I’ve not been the genial host with pithy writing tidbits. Heck, I even blew off my writer’s group for the Halloween and Thanksgiving series. But I promise to be better soon. Because I’m only Santa for a limited number of days this year. 

On the other hand, I have a new training obligation that starts in 3 weeks that will suck 4 hours a week out of my life – but it’s a great opportunity for me, and God seems to approve so far. 

Meantime, perhaps some extra writing this week to amuse myself, and hopefully you.

Be well and I’ll be back before Friday.

Another One Bites The Dust

Late yesterday afternoon I finished work on a very long audio book. Over 21.5 hours of finished listening.

I recorded it over a two month period while nursing my wife after her shoulder replacement. Consequently, it was a bit tough do, with having to change ice packs every twenty pages!

But it turned out well. The authors are thrilled. I hope to be able to put up links to the book in the next week, as it is now undergoing review on ACX/Audible/Amazon for sale. 

Every book adds to the library. I’m getting into the upper double digits now, and have sold over 4,000 audio books in the last decade. Actually less time, but hey – who’s counting?

More to follow shortly.
