I have just finished the conversion of “A Glimpse of Heaven” to Kindle format and it has been published today. It is available on all Amazon sites at a price of $9 in the USA, about £5.46+VAT in the UK and about €6.55+VAT in Europe.

Since I am publishing it myself, I have little marketing support apart from the limited backup supplied by Amazon. Neither can I afford professional advertising. I am therefore appealing to any followers of this blog who might be interested to spread the word to as many people as possible through their own social media. It really is a great little book! Who knows, if the theory of six (or three) degrees of separation is true, I might reach the whole world in a couple of weeks (or not).

ABOUT THE BOOK: “A Glimpse of Heaven, An introduction to Greek Orthodox churches and worship” is designed for visitors to
Greece or people with a passing interest in Orthodoxy. It is deliberately written in a light, friendly style for the general reader and, although it covers some important themes and is theologically accurate, it is not intended for serious students of the subject. A reviewer of the printed version on Amazon summed it up nicely: “This quirky little book is just what it claims to be in its title. ... It's just the thing to carry with you if you plan on visiting Greece and have an interest in the Orthodox Church or simply in its architecture and iconography. As far as I'm aware there aren't any similarly concise alternatives available. The author is a convert to the Orthodox Church and relates his own experiences to put his descriptions into a context that's accessible to visitors. Recommended.”

So, if you are regular visitors to
Greece or are considering a holiday there this year and want to know a bit about our country beyond the beaches and bars, this is the book to take with you.

SPECIAL OFFER: Unfortunately, for technical reasons, I have not been able to set up the special offers for next week. Apparently, there is a 30 day lead time. However, I think the book is still good value at the list price but, if you want a real bargain, hang on till February 6.
