Indie Authors Spotlight (2)

Indie Authors Spotlight is a BRAND NEW weekly meme that will be held every SATURDAY. It is hosted by Beckie @ Bittersweet Enchantment & CYP @ A Bookalicious Story. The idea of this meme is to promote indie authors and to help them and their books get recognized. This will be a great way for book bloggers to take part in helping these authors be spotlighted for their hard work. Below you will find a list of rules to follow to be able to take part in this meme.


John R. Ford!
About John

Writer of Christian fiction for people who don't like Christian fiction.
Gritty, realistic, and fully developed characters. Speculative stories told with a wicked and slightly warped sense of humor. If Kurt Vonnegut and Anne Lamott had a baby, this is the neighborhood where she would grow up.

And his novel:

Splitting Adam
The Blurb

Ever wonder what would happen if Frank Capra had directed Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde? Find out in Splitting Adam!

After a soul-crushing thirtieth birthday party, Pastor Adam Tyler, the hopelessly single son of a single mom, is given a chance to see what the world would be like without him. But surprisingly, rather than just an Adam-less world, he finds instead that he has been replaced by two others, each man his ″half-self.″ One, the child of his mother, is a wealthy and successful businessman. The other, the child of the father Adam has never known, is a movie-quoting, streetwise con man. It seems the only things these two have in common are Adam’s DNA, and that both are on a collision course for Deep Trouble. With a hand from his crusty guardian angel, it’s up to Adam to rescue them. But is he up to the task? And can he find his way home again?

This hilarious journey of half-self-discovery is the lovechild of Kurt Vonnegut and Anne Lamott, and is sure to delight all who enjoy a trip into the magical land of "what if?"

Into the Light
The Blurb

A group of people with nothing in common ... except they are dead, find themselves on a voyage toward a mysterious mountain. They don't know where they are going. They may never arrive. They have to learn to work together or else they may all fail, and if they do so, they will be stranded forever in the darkness.

(John is so kindly giving away 3 ecopies of Splitting Adam. The copies will be part of the big giveaway at the end of this month with the rest of the other spotlighted authors.)
