Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
A few years ago, I was sitting in church waiting for the service to begin. In the pew behind me, I overheard a young child speaking with her father. He was asking her to be sure she behaved herself while in church and if she did, he would take her out for lunch afterwards. She replied to him, "But, Dad, it is boring just sitting here. Why can't this be fun?"

Right then, something clicked in me. I began thinking that to a younger member of the church, the sermon from the minister might seem boring. That afternoon, I set out to begin a series of Christian books that would appeal to young and old alike to read about different lessons in our life, while still enjoying a fun storyline.

The first thing I had to do was to come up with a character that people would enjoy reading about. Therefore, Gig was created. Gig is an angel of God who is fun-loving and has a great sense of humor, but is very professional when it come to speaking of God or the scriptures. As with any good team, there must be a partner who is more straight than the other. I introduce you now to Reverend Paul Saluart. Paul is a young priest at a church in Southern Missouri, trying to find a way to bring the people back to listen to His words.

All through history, mankind has created mistakes which have disrupted God's plan for the people on this earth. Gig and Paul must now go on thier missions to the past to correct the mistakes of mankind and help put the path of the earth back to where God intended it to be.

Smashwords book reviews by M.W. Kilgore

  • Leaving Gilead on Jan. 13, 2014

    There's not much to say about 'Leaving Gilead", except that I absolutely enjoyed it. Immediately, I was drawn to the different characters, finding myself loving a few of them, and wanting to slap others. The story line was well written and easy to follow the characters throughout the entire book. I am hoping there might be a 'Leaving Gilead, part 2' coming out. If there is, I will get it immediately.
