To all my Bad Movie brethren and sistren (Is that even a word? It looks weird!):
Today my second novel, THE REDEMPTION OF PONTIUS PILATE, was released on all major online
bookselling sites. Of the three books I have completed, this is my favorite and, IMO, my best work.
But in this day of vanity presses and self-publishing, trying to get noticed as a new author is a much
bigger struggle than it was for previous generations of writers. That's where you come in. I would
like to ask each of you to help me out a bit. First of all, if you read at all, please buy a copy of my book
in EBook or paperback format. Read it, review it, recommend it!
Secondly, forward the links I've included below to all the people in your social circle who might enjoy
it. Buy copies to give as Christmas and birthday presents. The more copies out there, the more readers,
the more publicity and the more sales! Now, for those of you who are located here locally, I have several
book signings coming up - one in Greenville at Hastings on June 6, and another at the Waco Hastings on
June 20. June 13, I will have copies at the big Indian Artifact Show in Temple, TX, and June 27, I'll have them
at my table for the Jim Bowie Days Indian Artifact Show in Bowie, TX. But if you are too far away to come
pick up a signed copy in person, please consider buying one online.
Last of all, pray for me in this venture. I write for two reasons: One is unashamedly financial. Twenty years
as a teacher in a small private school have left me with little savings, and I would like to be able to retire
before I am 80! Secondly, though, is the far more important reason: I want to glorify God in my writing.
There are too many religiously themed books out there whose whole point is to discredit, debunk, and deny
the claims of Christianity. I want to tell good stories, but I also want to get the truth out there about who Jesus
was and is. Some of you here share my faith, some don't, and that's OK. It's the very essence of freedom. But my
books are the best way for me to reach people. Give a copy to your pastor, your professor, your parents, your
friend who has 5000 FaceBook friends! Help me spread the word about my novels, and you will have my eternal
Here is the direct Amazon link:http://www.amazon.com/Redemption-Pontius-Pilate-Lewis-Smith/dp/1632131404/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1431985955&sr=8-1&keywords=THE+REDEMPTION+OF+PONTIUS+PILATE
You can get REDEMPTION in paperback or EBook format.
You can also get it from my publisher's website:www.electiopublishing.com

Thanks for your friendship and support!
PS If you buy directly from my publisher, I get a bigger cut because we don't have to pay out 30% to a
third party distributor!
