Richard Spillman and Free Books!

Everyone dies once, but what if a chosen few were raised from the dead?

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the free e-copy of the contemporary romance, Love in Pictures, by Alexis Goring, is:


Congratulations! We'll get your book right out to you. I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's chat with novelist Richard Spillman, author of the spec-fiction novel, The Awakened (Mountain Brook Ink, October 1).

Dr. Richard Spillman founded the Kingdom is Near Ministries (KIN). Through KIN he has supported an orphanage in Uganda as well as a church/school for kids from conflict zones in the Philippines. He has small teams on short-term missions into slums and jungles around the world. He has also taught in DTS for YWAM in Mali, South Korea, India, and the Philippines.

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

I was trafficked by my mother to my uncle and his pedophile ring. It was a deep dark secret most of my life but now God uses my experience to minister to abused children.

Wow. God bless you, Richard, for turning such a horrible experience into a way to minister to children.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of The Awakened.

Two thousand years ago Jesus resurrected his friend, Lazarus, who founded a secret organization: SOAR. Since then Jesus has added to the resurrected—The Awakened—to aid Lazarus in SOAR's battle against Satan's slaves, the UnVeilers. The threat is escalating. The UnVeilers have stepped up their attacks on mankind through a charming leader and a devastating series of bombings in Dubai and Tel Aviv.

But the invasion doesn't stop with international terrorism. The UnVeilers are searching for a secret that Jesus embedded in Lazarus’ journal that not even Lazarus knows—and it will determine the fate of mankind. After a failed cyber-attack against SOAR's computers, Lazarus and his team of experts must find the secret before the UnVeilers do. What clue is he overlooking that could turn the tide of this ageless conflict?

The souls fighting with Lazarus are weary, but the war against evil is far from won. Can Lazarus and his team set aside their longing for heaven and put a stop to these satanic attacks before it's too late?

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

The last novel (actually two novels) I read was The Evaporation of Sofi Snow/Reclaiming Shilo Snow, by Mary Weber. This two book series is a science fiction adventure with a heart. It’s underlying message about child slavery spoke to me.

What are you working on now?

The second book in this trilogy, called The Ascension.

Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

What do you look for in a book that is labeled Christian fiction? Is it enough that it be clean (in language and situations)? Or the main character must be Christian? Or something more?

Hello Trish and Richard! Christian fiction to me means that the gospel is presented in the story without being preachy.
