To more good news—what I’m most excited about is my new book, Seventh Dimension –The City, a Young Adult Fantasy, Book 4. If you click on the hyperlink, you will be taken to a “landing page” where you can read early reviews and easy purchase links.

You can read Seventh Dimension – The City without having read the first three books, but I believe you will enjoy the series more if you read the books in order. Many hours have gone into creating a plot that could be supported by facts. Weaving uncomfortable truths (or conspiracies) into a story with a Christian worldview that instills hope was both challenging and redemptive.

I haven’t had an opportunity to promote Seventh Dimension – The City for a formal launch, and I may not do one. My focus is getting the Seventh Dimension Series into bookstores and libraries. Recently, I have found web promotions to be ineffective. However, I will be sharing on my blog as well as guest blogging. Hopefully, my new book and insights will pique your interest.

Reviewers have found the Seventh Dimension Series difficult to categorize. One reviewer called Seventh Dimension – The Door a Biblical Alice in Wonderland. Others compared Seventh Dimension – The Door to the Narnia Series, but the series goes much deeper. Whether you are a YA or an adult, I believe you will be entertained, inspired, and encouraged.I doubt anyone would be as crazy as me and spend the hours of research I did to write books on this topic. My number one priority was to stay true to scripture. My second priority was to write a story that was compelling and creative.

Before writing Seventh Dimension – The City, I asked God to show me the battle between good and evil. The research I did for Seventh Dimension – The City was an eye-opener.

Few would be as crazy as me to spend the hours I did researching a speculative Christian book. My number one priority was to stay faithful to the Scriptures. My second priority was to write a story that was compelling and creative.

God impressed many things upon me. Based on world events, when considered in light of Scripture, I concluded the Messiah’s return was imminent. We don’t know the day or the hour, but I believe the church has been sleeping (otherwise known as laziness). Many folks are too busy or preoccupied to focus on the Lord’s return. Complacency is dangerous. As a broadcast captioner, I can tell you many things don’t make it into the news that should because Satan is a master at deception. He would rather keep people in the dark about the world’s condition.

Lest I bore you with author ramblings, let me share a little about Seventh Dimension – The City. Seventh Dimension – The City begins with Shale Snyder, the protagonist, defending creationism in a high school biology class where students are debating the prevalent views on the origins of humankind.

While many Christians find this discussion self-evident (a well-meaning church leader said no one believes in evolution anymore ), I was surprised my most contentious comments on Twitter came from Twitter followers who espoused evolution as if it were the gospel. To them, it probably is.

If you are one of those people, I want to share an interesting observation I hadn’t considered until I read one of Dr. Hugh Ross’ books.[i]

Consider the eye. Many parts of the eye go into seeing (we know that because an eye exists), but in the beginning, the factors that go into seeing (not the retina) wouldn’t know they were evolving into seeing because seeing was a nonexistent entity carried out by another type of cell. In other words, cells would multiply to perform a function that didn’t yet exist.

Here is another observation from an author friend, Gregg Edwards:

The one thing I remember from In Six Days,[ii] Mater Books had to deal with DNA. DNA contains a “language” that had to exist simultaneously, if not before DNA. So, if evolution were true, the “language” for DNA would have to be extant before DNA, which is physically impossible.

I remember a little demonstration: Have a class of students pick Scrabble tiles out of a bag to see how improbable it would be to draw enough tiles to get a word, even a three-letter word. But, thinking about this, suppose the kids drew three to four tiles, and they came up with the words dog and cat.

These words only have meaning because we have a language. If you used Scrabble tiles with Russian Cyrillic (for English speakers), they would not know if they made a word because they would not understand the language. To me, this demonstrates the fallacy of evolution.

I researched many topics, including some controversial ones like UFOs, genetic manipulation, micro-chipping, HAARP (the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program), CERN, EMPs, the reappearance of the Nephilim, and occultism. As I learned more, two questions surfaced:  Is mind control and time travel possible?

Other strange questions involved the Bible. Did fallen angels marry women whose descendants became known as the Nephilim? Do star gates exist on Earth from a previous time? Is gnostic or supernatural knowledge active in the world today? Does it have the power to influence world leaders, science, and religion? Can half-truths deceive believers?

The devil is notorious for tempting humans with enough truth to persuade an unsuspecting person to believe his foolishness, or as the Bible says in Romans 1:25: “…who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”

In Seventh Dimension – The City: Book 4, the story begins with Shale in Atlanta, Georgia. Almost three years have passed since she returned from the first century. She knows Daniel should be returning soon since he began his journey in 2015. It’s now 2016, and Daniel has yet to return, raising concerns for Shale—is he still alive?

But as her best friend reminds her, “Time is an illusion in the seventh dimension.” Shale’s story merges with Daniel’s in a way neither could have imagined. Is Shale’s lost father involved in a significant conspiracy? Will Daniel be able to rescue his missing father? Is Armageddon about to be unleashed on the world?

Shale and Daniel travel to the ends of the Earth and face a world more real than reality. Interdimensional time travel reveals hidden truths. Soon, Shale must make the most difficult decision of her life that will affect her relationship with Daniel. Strange signs in the heavens manifest, global chaos ensues, and evil runs amok. Thrust into an apocalyptic alternate world, she must choose between mortal love and immortality.

The United States is rendered impotent. Otherworldly powers rise.

As we await the Lord’s return, readers have settled for werewolves and other fictional ideologies because they don’t realize Biblical Truth is more compelling and earth-shattering.

Younger and even older readers have bought into Hollywood mirages of future dystopia because they think that’s all there is. They don’t know God has already revealed our future in the Bible. Due to ignorance, they waste their intellect on irrelevant and irreverent stories. Jesus used stories to tell great truths. Satan uses stories to tell great lies.

As Joshua said in Joshua 24:15:  “…choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites…”

Those worthless gods that existed at the time of Joshua still exist today. They have continued into the 21st century under different names and forms. All the false gods, then and now, are simply “old whores in new dresses.”

In plain language, nothing is new under the sun. Satan and his wicked angels need a body to possess as fallen spirits (if you remember from the Garden of Eden, the snake, possessed by the devil, was cursed by God to crawl on his belly and eat dirt all the days of his life).

They must possess living and nonliving entities or containers. Just as Satan deceived the heathen to worship false gods like Venus, Zeus, Jupiter, Hercules, Poseidon, and other such idols (who were Satan in disguise or one of his minions), so will the masses be deceived to worship Lucifer

Considering my target audience is YA, I kept the book to a PG rating. However, I don’t believe the latter days will be rated PG. If you look at the book of Revelation, we’ve underestimated the horror that awaits humankind. I hope my Seventh Dimension Series gives a glimpse into the future mitigated with Godly hope.

Nothing I mention in Seventh Dimension – The City is beyond plausibility. I would be surprised if some events don’t happen in the next few years. However, once again, “time is an illusion.” We may only have a few months, or we may have many years. Only God knows. The question is: Are you ready to meet your Creator?
