All this week my book AND THE BEAT GOES ON will be showcased at various blogs and sites around the cybersphere. Thanks to everyone who is participating. Here's more info about the book:
And The Beat Goes On is the story of Mark Graham, an archeologist who discovers pterodactyl remains buried alongside giant humans while working in the mountains of Zimbabwe. Naturally, as a scientist, he wants to discover the truth about the find, but is having trouble reconciling the evidence with the scientific community’s expectations. Speculation leads to the possible existence of a mythical race known as ‘Nephilim’, a pre-flood people alleged to have descended from both gods and men. But skepticism and sabotage delay Mark and his team as the dig site is compromised, putting their discovery – as well as his very life – in grave danger. Deceived and framed by trusted friends and colleagues, Mark struggles to safeguard his findings and protect his reputation in order to unearth the mystery behind the Nephilim.
The book raises a lot of questions, both about the possibility of intelligent design, and the possibility of a conspiracy to keep this theory at bay. However, it doesn’t really attempt to come to any conclusive answer either way. What I hope it does, (and I have had quite a bit of feedback to suggest this is the case) is get people thinking and talking about these issues. That was my intent right from the start. I am not a scientist and I don’t pretend to know all the answers to some of the questions raised, but I am interested in the topic of intelligent design as a viable theory, not just for people that believe in Biblical creation. As well, I am fascinated by the potential for supernatural beings that may have visited planet earth, be they angels, demons, or aliens. Both of these aspects of the story come together in a modern setting that also has some romance in it, too. I mention the romance, not to scare off any male readers, but to say that many fans of the book have actually been men, and there is enough action and intrigue that they weren’t put off by the romantic elements.
AND THE BEAT GOES ON is available in hardcover, paperback and as an ebook. Here are some purchase links:
