I received an e-mail today from John Shors highlighting some exciting news that I'd like to share with you. You may remember when I first wrote of my love affair with his work. Without further ado, here it is:
Dear Friend [yes, we're very close...],
I hope this email finds you well!
First of all, I hope that 2012 has started out nicely for you.
Second, I know that you’re busy, so this email will be brief…Every day I get asked when my first novel, Beneath a Marble Sky, will be available as an e-book. I’m happy to report that this event has finally arrived. As of today, Beneath a Marble Sky is available for all Kindle readers. The novel will be available for other e-book platforms in the near future. Beneath a Marble Sky (a work of historical fiction based on the remarkable story behind the creation of the Taj Mahal) is an international bestseller, and is now in twenty languages. A mini-series remains a strong possibility.
I’m also asked quite a bit about my next book, which is shaping up to be another epic work of historical fiction. Temple of a Thousand Faces is a novel about Angkor Wat—a marvelous temple located in Cambodia and considered the largest religious structure on Earth. I’m extremely excited about Temple of a Thousand Faces, which will come out in February of 2013. Sorry for the wait, but it’s a 500+ page book, so I’m taking my time with it!
Thank you, again, for your wonderful support. In the past several years that support has allowed me to:
- Help buy complete sets of sets of school books for 1,300 homeless Vietnamese children
- Plant 500 trees in America
- Aid hundreds of children in Thailand affected by recent flooding
Thank you so very much for your time and thoughts.
My very best wishes to you!John
