The movie adaptation of my novel, Jimmy, is complete. We screened the film for the first time on May 5 in Charlotte for investors and supporters. Not surprisingly, there weren’t many dry eyes in the crowd by the time the credits started to roll. Jimmy has always occupied a special place in my heart, and it is a thrill to see the characters come to life on the screen. The next step is to show the film to distributors and reach an agreement for theatrical distribution and/or DVD release. Eventually, the movie will be available through all the usual channels (pay per view, DVD, on-line streaming, etc.). As soon as the movie website is up and running there will be a link so you can sample what will be shown. I look forward sharing this film with each and every one of you!
If you like my books, I think you’ll also enjoy Robert Liparulo’s newest book, The 13th Tribe, which combines Biblical history with modern high-tech espionage. This novel asks, “What if there were a 13th Tribe of Israel? And what if the members of the Tribe were immortals who have existed to the present day?” That premise, along with the Tribe’s vendetta to kill sinners in a twisted attempt to earn God’s favor, makes for heart-pounding action. The Tribe has access to every bit of high-tech weaponry known to man, and they’re using it in ways that put countless innocents in danger. It’s an unique and intriguing read. Check it out for yourself.
I’ve finished a new novel, The Choice, that will be released in mid-2012. The first part of the novel is set in 1974, a year after the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in the United States and is the story of a seventeen year old girl faced with a life and death delimna when she finds out she’s pregnant. The girl’s challenges increase when a mysterious old woman at a gas station tells her that she’s carrying twin boys – and if the boys ever meet, one of them is going to die. The novel spans over three decades in the life of the main character. Writing it was an emotional journey for me, and I hope it will prove to the be same for readers.
Publisher’s Weekly has just released their review of the new Robert Whitlow novel, Water’s Edge. Here is what they had to say:
Robert Whitlow. Thomas Nelson, $15.99 trade paper (400p) ISBN 978-1-59554-451-3
Christy Award–winning Whitlow (Greater Love) is a lawyer who knows his profession, as his newest legal thriller shows. Tom Crane is a hotshot young Atlanta lawyer who thinks he’s about to become partner. Instead he gets pink-slipped, and dumped by his girlfriend, giving him lots of time to close out the smalltown law practice of his late father, who died in a boating accident. Circumstances slowly suggest that his father’s death was not an accident; a second man who died in the boating accident has a beautiful daughter interested in the truth behind her father’s death, and she’s also an evangelical Christian. Characterizations are plausible, the mystery develops at a good pace, and the villain’s a surprise. The Christian elements are heavy but not sappy; their centrality in the story will limit the potential audience to those already in sympathy with Christian fiction requirements. It’s welcome relief nonetheless to have Christian fiction that doesn’t center on romance, and Whitlow is certainly a competent writer. (Aug.)
