I thought it might help if I posted the video trailer for my Christian novel 'Flying a Kite'. As my earlier post said I am looking for reviewers who can contact me via kite at synergise dot com. More details about this book at www.iankingsley.com/books/flying-a-kite
Many thanks.

P.S. Hope you enjoy the video!

I would be delighted if anyone in this community would like to receive a copy of my latest Christian novel 'Flying a Kite' to review on Amazon. It aims to break down the barriers between science and religion. You can read more about it, including some great early endorsements/reviews, and watch a video trailer, at: www.iankingsley.com/books/flying-a-kite
It would be great if you can do that from a pdf or doc file. If not, and you confirm you will eventually be willing to post to Amazon or Goodreads, I could arrange to send you the paperback. Easy in the UK, but might have to order it from Amazon.com if you are in the States. I can only offer 'real' copies to a limited number.
Please do not ask for a copy if you cannot follow-through.
I would be really grateful for your help.
If you are an author and would like feedback on a book opening, I should be pleased to offer than in return for a quick review of an 'electronic' copy of my novel.
Please email me via kite at synergise dot com
Many thanks for any help!

My latest novel, 'Flying a Kite' is now out, and your help to make this known would be really great. Although an easily accessible story, the underlying theme is to shown how science and religion (ie The Bible)  can be seen as compatible. It seeks to remove traditional barriers that hinder Christian belief where there appear to  be contradictions over issues such as evolution and creation, where could heaven possible be in scientific terms, the Garden of Eden mysteries about forbidden trees and a serpent, etc. It even shows how science can substantiate the fact Genesis 1 was God-inspired.

If you get around to reading it then your reviews posted to Amazon or Goodreads would be a fantastic boost to its aim - as would your prayers!

The book seeks to correct misunderstandings about Jesus promulgated by authors such as Dan Brown. While reviews compare it to 'The Shack' because of genre similarity, I hasten to add that my work portrays the Trinity in a traditional Christian sense. It is a quest novel in which the protagonist seeks to offer Aldo Galliano, a dying man, the confidence there is a God and life after death. There is humour, eccentric characters, and a lightness that belies the spiritual depth and keeps it light. But, as the cover blurb says,  "Beware. Like one of Galliano's favourite lattes, while it might appear frothy on the surface, a high caffeine brew lurks deep below that might keep you awake at night... thinking."

To show you it might be worth a read, here are some cover endorsements...

"Fluid, smooth and flows at a lovely pace. Really engaging from the start. Like 'The Shack' there is a niche for this kind of book." Gillian McDade (author of  'Standing Man')

"Addresses a universal question in a much better way than Dan Brown in 'Angels & Demons' where the God v Science debate is just another sub-plot in another ciphering book. In 'Flying a Kite' it's the main plot thread, convincingly dealt with and riveting." Richard Pierce (author of 'Dead Men')

"Fluid, graphic writing and excellent use of description. Characters come alive through captivating dialogue." Elijah Iwuji (author of 'Praying in the Will of God')

"Characters direct and effective. I enjoyed the pace which allowed the reader to think about important concepts by himself." Heikki Hietala (author of 'Tulagi Hotel')

You might like to check me out on Twitter as @authorkingsley, where I post daily (to over 25,000 followers). (Retweets of posts about it would be fantastic!) Or just find full details about the book and its Christian aims, including a video trailer, at:  http://www.iankingsley.com/books/flying-a-kite/

I thank you for any help you can give... and hope you enjoy the book!
