My very first "atheist fiction" novel goes on sale today!
I pondered whether or not this was the right forum to post this in, but given the fact that the novel deals heavily with the themes of religion and atheism, particularly as it relates to the prospects of one's own imminent demise, I feel this is the appropriate place. Anyway, after a long year consumed by much writing and editing, I'm proud to announce that it is finally available for sale today! It is available in paperback and epub formats, the latter of which I have our very own StuW to thank for making possible.

The synopsis as per the back cover of the novel is as follows:
"Bennett Shepherd wakes up following a heart attack to rediscover an obvious truth: his time on earth is severely limited. Given a harsh prognosis, he struggles to find meaning in his life while coping with a history that plagues his conscious, foregone eras which have regrettably defined him. Bennett is a story about life and death, the meaningful and the meaningless, renewing hope in a reality seen and touched as much as felt. Above all else, the heart of Bennett is a budding friendship that reveals how monumental achievements are often nothing more than small acts of kindness reaching out to the next generation."

A friend of mine, W.A. Raymond, also recently did an interview with me for the release of the novel which you can read here.

Additionally, here are some photos of the paperback version I took so that you can get a sense of what you will be purchasing if you're interested:

It was a very time consuming project and I hope it will pay off. My aspirations for the novel is that it will help readers, who may or may not find the annihilation of the self too difficult of an idea to accept, cope with this likelihood by demonstrating through the fictional story of Bennett that life is the locus of everything that is meaningful, and that death can enhance life if it is confronted head-on, absent of delusion. All the links I have provided above, as well as additional info can be found at www.bennettnovel.com. Thanks for your time everyone!

Fiction novel is redundant. :-)

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.
