Pentecostal Preacher as Villain, April 24, 2013
This review is from: In the Seventh Day (Paperback)
One does not hear too much about the anti-hero these days, but if that character has moved on to other climes and you miss him, take heart–the bastard is alive and well in a new pull-no-punches novel by Jane Cooper Easton, In the Seventh Day. Set in a small midwestern community that can only be described as “way off the beaten path” Cooper takes us directly into the mind of Kevin Hillar, a charismatic young preacher who has come to town to establish The Way, a new denomination that will follow the “umbrella authority” that his fundamentalist sect has generated from their retrograde understanding of the teachings of the Apostle Paul. To the liberal/secular mind the most generous description to be offered of this quirky theological world would be “violently anti-feminist.” And so it is in Ms. Easton’s novel.
And my novel is available on both Createspace and Amazon.com. See “How To Order Jane” page!
For Your Information [FYI] – During my read-through this morning, I found one spacing error. I’ve fixed this in the original document and uploaded the corrected version to Createspace.
This means IN THE SEVENTH DAY is temporarily unavailable on Amazon.com and Createspace e-Store.
With 48 hours, the file should be “checked” and ready for proofing. Once proofed, the novel will be available again.
My main character, smooth-talking, handsome, outwardly-kind Kevin Hillar is inwardly without conscience, unaware that what he does is wrong. In his mind, his actions are perfectly logical.
He’s come to Vevay, Indiana – a very small community between Louisville, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio – to plant a church which he does in a local tobacco farmer’s barn.
As soon as the reverend meets the Gateway family, he knows what he wants. From his desire comes many evils.
I’m pleased to announce my first – oh so lonely – internet sale of IN THE SEVENTH DAY. Thanks! Now, if others will follow suit, I’ll be jumping up to touch the ceiling. That’s a big jump as I was tall as a child until everyone shot over me in 6th grade!
I trust a review will follow in the near future!
