It’s Here! Soul’s Gate is Here!

Good news on two fronts:

1. I’ve won the coveted title of worst blogger ever. Unfortunately I’m planning on losing the title by upping my posting schedule by 3,567% starting in a few weeks. (Which would have me posting once a month.) That might cut me out of the running for the title next year. No worries.

2. My fourth novel, Soul’s Gate has just released. I’m not big on promoting myself so I’ll share a couple of thoughts from others:

Publishers Weekly: “Readers with high blood pressure or heart conditions be warned: this is a seriously heart-thumping and satisfying read that goes to the edge, jumps off, and “builds wings on the way down.”

RT Book Reviews Top Pick! with a 4.5-star review:
Rubart’s novel is enthralling and superlative. Truly a story about freedom from things that we hold onto, this tale will captivate readers and encourage a more active, dynamic spiritual life. The original plot and well-drawn characters elevate this book to “must read” status.”

And of course you can check out the reader reviews at the various online book sellers. (Amazon has by far the most at this point.)

FYI if you’re thinking about laying out some coin of the realm for this novel, there are two versions. The normal version which you can buy just about everywhere online and in brick and mortar stores, and the exclusive Barnes & Nobler version.

This was fun.

We did three extra chapters for the B&N version plus a special authors note. (You can buy it online or in store.)

There you be. Three books a week is all I ask. (Yes, free almonds with purchase.)

Much freedom, friends,

Im allergic to almonds, could you make it some kind of chocolate? Seriously, I’m thrilled to see this book finally on the bookshelves – I was growing weary of waiting. And worst blogger? Naw! Must be some mistake.

Jim, didn’t know I was waiting for your next book, but happy to know there is a 4th for me to buy, so be assured I will…today! Rooms is a favorite of mine….will remain so. The Chair amazing. The books of Days has stayed with me….it helped me in my deepest grief….now Soul’s Gate, what a wonderful title. God and I were just talking about my soul this early morning when I awoke and greeted God good morning. Can’t wait to begin. Respect you as a writer of compelling fiction….doesn’t really matter to me where you fall on the good/bad blogger scale.

Congratulations, Jim! I praise God for how He has brought you up into the stratosphere of Christian authors. You are truly a testament to the power of perseverance. 🙂

How long to Aus? I have been waiting also. Don’t suppose we have a B&N here…haven’t heard of them. Always wanting extra chapters from a gripping book. Love how you speak God’s truth straight into the heart in a wacky, compelling fiction way….reminds me of the Angela Hunt books I used to devour! Thanks for writing & keep chasing God in your work! BTW I like almonds!

Just finished reading Soul’s Gate and have to say that I haven’t felt this thrilled to read Christian fiction since I read “Piercing the Darkness.” Thank you for writing such a thrilling, truth-filled, Jesus-honoring novel!

Awesome read! I am a HUGE Frank Peretti fan and you have joined those ranks! This book was EXCELLENT! I just wrote a review for the book on my blog, hope you get a chance to come by and read it. I am anxiously awaiting the rest of the series!
