My second e-book
I intended Testament to be the twin novella of Remembering Jesus. I imagined it in book form; each story would be reversed so that there will be no back cover. I even have a name for the set: ELEGRAPHIES–a word I coined by combining elegy & biography. This is because both stories chronicle a life, and because death is a recurring theme.
I hadn’t thought of them as stand-alone books because they’d be so thin. Not until I read e-books, that is. After releasing RJ exclusively in the Amazon Kindle Store, I decided I’d do the opposite with Testament. So I released it at both Amazon and Smashwords. To cover my bases, so to speak. Once it is approved by Smashwords’ Premium Library, it will be distributed in other ebook stores like iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Sony, etc.
Testament is wider than RJ in terms of scope, grittier in some aspects, but both are life-affirming in the end. If you’ve got it, I hope you enjoy reading it. Please give me feedback if you can, too.
