Author Elaine Stock featured me on her blog this past week. Check it out here. I talked about a very important time in my life when I was powerless to make the change I wanted to make. But when I put the problem in God's hands, the solution was almost instantaneous.

Elaine created and posted this meme along with my story.

The Devil & Pastor Gus has a new cover. I discovered that recently by accident. But here it is:

I'd been hoping my publisher would replace that scary looking cover that had the stereotypical looking Devil in the upper right hand corner. I honestly think many potential readers were turned off by it.

I never portrayed the Devil that way in the book and—even though my novel is quite suspenseful, especially towards the end—it is not a horror story.

It's actually a satire. Martin Luther is quoted as having said, "The best way to drive out the devil, if he will not yield to texts of Scripture, is to jeer and flout him, for he cannot bear scorn."

And that's the purpose of The Devil & Pastor Gus: to ridicule the Devil by combining elements of the short story "The Devil and Daniel Webster," C. S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters, and the book of Job from the Bible in what I hope is both entertaining and thought-provoking.

Read reviews of The Devil and Pastor Gus on the Reviews page or at Amazon. The twenty-three Amazon reviews have a 4.3 star average rating.

Here's the latest one:
"This is a wonderful book that will entertain you and help you to see the truth about vanity and pride.

"There is humor, truth and some parts will make you cry. I highly recommend this book, it really opened my eyes regarding doing things for what you may believe is a good reason, only to realize that you are in God's way, not really relying on Him like we are supposed to. Sometimes we get overzealous and don't remember to talk to God about a situation. I don't want to write a sermon, so I'll leave it with this final recommendation to try this book."

If you've read and enjoyed The Devil and Pastor Gus, but haven't left a review on Amazon or Goodreads, I'd be grateful if you would. It doesn't have to be long or complicated. Just say what you liked about it. The more reviews an Amazon book gets, the more seriously Amazon helps to push it. Thanks bunches!

A big brotherly hug to all of my world-wide guests, no matter where you live. I hope you enjoy your visit and come again soon.

Best regards,
