Novel #22 Is Underway
I'm coming right along on my twenty-second Christian novel, WHY NOT? As I often do now, I designed the cover before I started writing. This time, however, I actually planned the first part of the story around the cover picture. The blurb at the bottom is accurate as of now, but who knows what changes will come as I keep writing...
DOXXI NO MORE has a 4.8 star rating, and here's the latest review. Written by novelist Bonnie Engstrom, it's called " A FUN "mystery" - cozy and complicated." This is what she had to say:
"Roger Bruner has expanded his writing! I've read several
of his books and enjoyed them but Doxxi is outstanding.
Every character in Doxxi comes alive - so much that I can
still visualize each. The story is almost a cozy but
without an off-stage death. I kept waiting with nervous
anticipation after each chapter to learn what Richard
would do to rid himself of the Doxxi image without
jeopardizing his integrity. Like a good mystery author
Bruner plays with hints and possibilities but doesn't
let readers in on the secret until the end. I loved the
numerous twists and surprises that gave Jenna and Dr.
Butler and Bo complex characters with their own personal
mysteries. Jenna was at times frustrating, Dr. Butler was
anciently smart and adorable and Bo (Richard's "not quite
good friend") is a hoot with his hat tossing. The conclusion
is unique and without giving too much away there is a HEA
ending - but for whom? It was a delightfully fun read,
more detailed than I expected (took several hours daily
over several days to read it). Bruner at his best! I
highly recommend it for a little stress, a mystery to
solve (could you come up with how Richard did it?) and a
very clever story. BTW, now I must read Nathaniel
Hawthorne's The Artist of the Beautiful that I never
read in HS. It's almost an obligation after reading Doxxi."
Doesn't that make you want to read DOXXI NO MORE?
For quite a few years I've been posting the lyrics of my original songs on my blog, "As I Come Singing."
But I also have audio recordings of a number of them on drop down-boxes here. Some of the songs and recordings are newer, while others are songs I've dug out of the old notebooks and relearned to record. My intention is to put a link to the most recent recording on this page.
Ready? Here's "The True Source." It's a total rewrite of an older song called "I Come Believing, Lord."
Thought for the Week of 6/4/2023
"The very essence of anxious care is
imagining that we are wiser than God."
I hope you enjoy your visit and come again soon.
