Final update:

Thank you to all who supported the funding for The Kingdom of Heaven. The project is closing today, but information about the book can still be found at www.evelynmlewis.com . Additionally, follow me on facebook at "Evelyn M. Lewis - writer" and on instagram @lilliterra.

Once again, all of the pre-orders will be refunded. Hang in there, as I am still planning to self-publish the book in Spring 2023.

Any future emails will come from lilliterra@outlook.com aka "Evelyn Lewis".

See you on the other side,

Emily / Evelyn

Hello all.

Here’s an update on the status of the Kingdom of Heaven project. I’m sorry to say that I am not going to reach my goal of 750 pre-orders. Orders have plateaued and I can’t afford the level of advertising I would need to find 650 more backers. Additionally, I have had some personal struggles that have prevented me from being fully active during the critical early stages of the funding.

Here’s what’s going to happen next: The project will be allowed to expire on Monday, November 28, 2022, and all of the backers will be refunded at that time.

Don’t worry though- this is only a small setback! As Yoda said, "Do or do not- There is no try." So, I will publish this book.

I am still at work doing final edits on the draft. However, if everything goes favorably, I expect to send out Reader Advance Copies by Jan 1, 2023, and I hope to have the book available for purchase by May 1.

I have collected the email address of everyone who pre-ordered and will continue to update you about the status of the book. The Inkshares book page will no longer be available on Monday Nov 28. Instead, I will set up a page on my own personal web site, which I will send another email about.

Thank you so much for supporting me on this project. Stay tuned - I’m not giving up!

To all who have ordered "The Kingdom of Heaven" and all who will order: Thank you! The book campaign has reached 9% of its total goal, and God willing it will continue to progress!
I have a spiffy new cover to share: it could have cost me a lot of money if I weren’t an artist myself. :D Here is what it looks like:
So, you may be asking, if I’ve already pre-ordered, is there anything else I can do to help bring The Kingdom of Heaven to shelves? The answer is yes! "Evelyn M. Lewis - writer" is the name of my Facebook page. I’ve had great results so far when people use facebook’s built-in feature to invite their friends to like the page.

Another thing you could do is follow me on Instagram or on Twitter @lilliterra.

Trusting God’s timing -
