At last! Kirk DouPonce’s wonderful cover for Bell Mountain No. 11, The Temptation–which goes on sale today (see yesterday’s post, https://leeduigon.com/2019/04/11/wahoo-the-temptation-goes-on-sale-tomorrow/).

If you’re up to speed with the story, you’ve probably wondered about what’s going to happen with all that gold they brought down from the mountain, all the political intrigue going on in Obann City, and what Jack and Ellayne and Wytt are getting up to now. Actually, it’s been so long since I wrote this book, and I’ve written No. 12 in the interim, that I can’t remember what’s in it! I’ll have to read it, too.

I hope, this time, I run out of fingers to count on before I run out of sales to count.

Anyhow, it ought to be up there on amazon.com before the day is done, allowing for time differences and all that. So keep your eyes peeled for it!

Freedom–under Our Rightful King

Jesus Christ is the Ruler of all!!

Jesus said, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

This is why all the wannabe rulers of the world hate Him. It’s even why their pet academics teach defenseless college students that there’s no such thing as truth–there’s only “your truth” and “my truth,” and somehow the professor’s “truth” always wins.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the only ruler whose right is absolute, God-given. As far back as David’s time, three thousand years ago, we are told as much in the Psalms. “The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool” (Ps. 110:1). God has promised to put all things under His Son, whose right it is.

Global government types don’t want to hear that! It’s their right, not His! Because they’re so much smarter than us, so much better…

Almost Published! ‘The Temptation’

“The Temptation,” Book No. 11 of my favorite book series, Bell Mountain, is coming out soon! I can’t wait!! 😆

If that cat climbed up the shelf looking for my newest Bell Mountain novel, The Temptation (No. 12 in the series), he was doomed to disappointment.

The Temptation was supposed to be published this week, but the job done by the printer “had some problems with it,” I’ve been told, so those have to be corrected. If you own any of these books, you know Chalcedon has very high production standards.

Anyway, when the book finally is published, which should be soon, you can trust me not to keep the news to myself. And then it’s got to be put on amazon.com so more of you can buy it (heh-heh).

It was warm enough to ride my bike this morning, which tells me that soon it’ll be nice enough weather for me to start writing another book. The Lord knows (yes, He knows, but I don’t) where that story’s going…

Way Cool! A Real, Live Giant Squid

The giant squid is one of my favorite sea creatures. Our God is a marvelous Creator! Watch this video from Lee Duigon’s blog!!

Lee Duigon

Mr. Nature here–with something almost never seen by human beings: a giant squid.

Well, maybe not the 40- or 50-footers that sometimes wash up, much the worse for wear, on stony shores; but big enough to wow the crowd of people who saw it in Toyama Bay in central Japan.

What was it doing in such shallow water, so close to land? Who volunteered to go down there with a camera and film it under water? (Jules Verne would have definitely advised him not to!) There isn’t much information to go along with the video.

I suspect this poor animal is sick, too weak to keep the tide from washing him inshore, too distressed to react to human beings. Healthy squid are extremely vigorous, with extremely healthy appetites. I do love calamari rings, but there’s a limit to how much risk I’d take, to get them.

‘Be Thou My Vision’ (Nathan Pacheco)

From Lee Duigon’s blog. ‘Be Thou My Vision’ is my favorite hymn.

Lee Duigon

I liked this rendition of the hymn so much, I played it twice–Be Thou My Vision, sung by Nathan Pacheco. When this hymn was first sung, Charlemagne was a little boy. An ancient Irish hymn, from the eighth century. Still very much loved today.

Music for the ‘Bell Mountain’ Movie

I just love the Bell Mountain Series by Lee Duigon! Book 4 of this Christian fantasy series is my favorite. I highly recommend these books for young people, as well as adults!! I guarantee that once you start reading, you’ll have a hard time putting it down! Go to Lee Duigon’s blog, click on “Books,” and find out more about the Bell Mountain Series!!

This is not part of the movie contest–which is still on, by the way–it’s just my non-negotiable demand that Bernard Herrmann compose and conduct the music score. The above is his introductory music for Jason and the Argonauts (1963), one of my all-time absolute favorite movies. It’s got everything a good movie should have–a homicidal bronze giant, flying harpies, a skeleton hit squad–and whatever was happening on screen, Bernard Herrmann had the perfect music for it.

As for the cast-the-movie contest, we have entries so far from (he pauses to count on his fingers) half a dozen readers. Shoot, I was hoping to at least run out of fingers.

I know, I know: you can’t cast the movie if you haven’t read any of the books. I also know I need more readers. Like, lots more.

Let’s keep the contest running a little longer, in hopes of getting more entries…
