I’ve published Promised Valley Rebellion and Promised Valley War, the first two of four Promised Valley novels set in prehistory, which ask whether civilization and history, with their countless heaven-sanctioned wars and genocides, could’ve begun differently. The books have received reviews and awards well beyond my expectations. Please visit my website for more information. I’ve found the Self-Publishing Review very helpful to a writer who frankly didn’t know what he was doing when he began his adventure as an independent author. I thank Henry Baum and all the other contributors to SPR for their kind assistance.
