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

The audio serial finished on 20 May 2020. Now the final production work begins and some improvements.
Subscribers will then receive the entire audiobook of “Fiction Favours the Facts – Book 3”.
A youth with royal blood in his veins, growing up in Jerusalem during the religious revivals of King Josiah.
The hopes of a nation crumble as Josiah dies in battle and his revival dies with him.
Daniel continues to follow Josiah’s ways until his ability is recognised by the attacking king, Nebuchadnezzar, and he is taken away to Babylon.
As exiles in a land of strange customs, Daniel and his friends are to be educated in all the wisdom of Babylon. But first, they must decide whose rules come first: God’s or Nebuchadnezzar’s.
Which will Daniel choose? And what will the king do if Daniel rejects his laws?
It doesn’t take long before Daniel establishes himself as a man the king can’t do without, but jealous rivals ensure that danger is never far away.
NaNoWriMo began on 1 November at 00:00:01 and finished on 30 November at midnight.
When the clock reached midnight on 30 November 2018, I had already validated my novel earlier in the evening, so it was not quite as close to the deadline as last year. This time, large amounts of time spent travelling at the end of November fueled a frenzied rush of story-writing, with 35,000 words being written in the last week!
The story has only progressed to quite an early stage in the life of Daniel. He has spent only 8 years in Babylon. Not only so, but some parts of the section of story that has been attempted are still unfinished. An estimated 35,000 extra words will be required to tie up these loose ends. After this, a second volume will be required, if I live and God wants it to be so.
King Asa has ruled for many years, but his time is running out.
In Judah, trouble is brewing. The nation is surrounded by enemies while the king’s health is failing and pain is weakening his lifelong faith. Enemies from outside were to be expected, but were there also enemies within? Although the old king is much-loved, his bitterness against God’s prophet and the pain in his body have driven him to oppress innocents.
Should he search for enemies and root them out? Could he?
Passing on his faith to his son Jehoshaphat has always been his strongest desire, but now that he has what he wanted, does he still want it anyway? Jehoshaphat is ready to rule, and the country needs an active, faithful king.
But Asa is worried: if he hands over the kingdom to Jehoshaphat, who will guard the king and keep him safe?
Young Ben-hail may be the answer. A rising champion: fearless in battle, unequalled in swordsmanship, loyal and trusted by all. And for a king set on the worship of Yahweh, the clincher was his ancestry – he was a Levite.
Honour Ben-hail – the new king’s armour-bearer.
