Bible Tales Work in Progress

Bible Tales Work in progress

We are always writing books, and serials are often in progress. Here is a summary of the Bible Tales Work in Progress.

Last updated Feb 12, 2018 @ 9:20 am.

This page includes a progress bar for each of our current projects with some expected milestone dates.  These dates are given in the knowledge that God is in control of our lives and everything else – things do not always work out as we expect.  As far as it is up to us, these dates are important targets.

News of progress and further releases is included in the Bible Tales Thursday Newsletter.  Sign up now and you will hear the news first.

If you have any more questions about the books and can’t wait to hear answers through the newsletter, please ask through our Contact form.

Joseph, Rachel’s son

 

A NaNoWriMo novel

Joseph, Rachel's Son book cover

Synopsis

Jacob, the younger son of Isaac, returned to Haran looking for a wife from among his relatives. He arrived with nothing but the clothes on his back, yet after twenty years he found himself returning to Canaan with four wives, eleven sons, a daughter and great wealth. Surely God had blessed him and his family?

His youngest son was Joseph, born of his favourite wife, Rachel – the only wife he ever really wanted. Then, joy and tragedy: Rachel has another son, but dies in childbirth.

Joseph is sold as a slave by jealous brothers and Jacob has lost his favourite wife and his favourite son. What has become of God’s blessings?

From slave to ruler, Joseph, Rachel’s son, would be the saviour of his family, but only if he could hold on to his faith and overcome impossible odds.

NaNoWriMo content (50,000 words)

NaNoWriMo began on 1 November at 00:00:01 and finished on 30 November at midnight.

When the clock reached midnight on 30 November, I was sitting in the tiny Victorian hamlet of Navarre, typing away desperately – still in the middle of a sentence. Word count: 50,004. Just made it, after a frenetic rush of story-writing, with 22,000 words being written in the last 4 days!

 

Progress

Some parts of the story are unfinished, and an estimated 13,000 extra words will be required to tie up the loose ends. After that, the painful process of editing begins.

Extra content required (13,000 words)
Final editing (30 chapters)

Notes:
  1. Tying up of loose ends is planned for December 2017.
  2. Editing is planned for January-March 2018.
  3. The cover pictured above may not be the actual cover used.
  4. Publishing is planned for April/May 2018 in eBook and (hopefully) paperback formats.
  5. There are no plans for an audiobook version.
