David Michael Slater's The Sacred Books Trilogy is multi-leveled. For some it's a 'fun' read, for others it's a 'thrilling' read, and yet for others it goes beyond all of that.

Whoa! Now I HAVE to buy the Sacred Book series! It's been on my "list" of things to read, so thanks for the reminder! Pat Alvarado

Fascinating post on Eric's blog about you and your books and writing from a Jewish frame of reference, David. Thanks for sharing the link!
Comment by Wendy Martin on 8/12/2010 at 1:55 PM:
It's too bad that those who think they know all the answers are unwilling to listen to other view points, fictional or otherwise. Keep writing what your muse calls you to write.

Comment by Christy Davis on 10/7/2009 at 9:38 PM:
Hi David - just stopping back by to say hi, I hope you're having a wonderful day!
