Point of Man published!

PoM has been released and early results are favorable. Now, I need your help. As a self-published author (proudly displaying the publishing world’s scarlet letter), the best way to gain visibility for my books is from you, my reader.  In all reality, that is the only thing I really care about anyway. If you don’t like it, what’s the point?

What I need, actually, what I am dependent on, is your assistance. If you like PoM, leave a review. Positive ones are greatly appreciated. I read them all. If you really like it, tell a friend and have them tell a friend. That’s the only way I can keep writing, and I desperately want to keep writing. I have three books already mapped out. One, is the follow-up to FoM and PoM called Cross of Man. The second is the genesis of the tactical warfare group – 2iE. It’s explained in PoM. The third is an unnamed prequel that features Dolan and Leary in 1999. If we get PoM sold, I promise it won’t take me 5 years to get one of these out.

So there it is. I need positive reviews and word of mouth. Thanks for your support.

    I have always been a huge fan of John Grisham & after reading Fabric of Man YOU became my favorite author. I have been impatiently looking forward for the sequel ever since it was announced & pre-ordered the Kindle version of Point of Man the first day it was announced on Amazon. I Just finished reading it & you, Mr. Abbenhaus, have not failed to retain the same level of excitement &

    Although this is fictional, details & facts in both present & past have been well researched & presented that it was hard to believe it’s not. I enjoyed every word of it & the plot was very well thought through. Looking forward for Cross of Man hopefully another fast paced entertainer! As a Christian myself, I admire the way you have not disappointed the believers in spite of actions of certain characters & specially the ending… or the beginning for Cross of Man.

    Thank you Mr. Abbenhaus.

    Thanks. Notes like these keep me writing. Also, thanks for the review. I really appreciate it. Positive reviews and people telling other people about books are the only way people like me can survive in the publishing world.

    As far as the next book, I may take a break from this direct story line. I need some time to pass. The two I am wrestling with are:
    1. A book like the others, style wise, back and forth in time, where a scroll is uncovered that follows Jesus in the later part of his ministry. The twist is that perhaps he was a creation of Rome to pacify the Sanherdrin (or maybe not). The modern part, will follow Leary and Dolan around as they try to recover the scroll from who stole it. Lot’s of surprises in this one.

    2. In Point, I introduce a group called 2iE (isolate, identify, eliminate). I want to write a book about the formation of this unit. Think – gamer millennials meets Tom Clancy. Technothriller start to finish.

    Currently, #2 is winning out, but you never know. I need to sell more Point books.

    Thanks again & cheers,

    I have been waiting for the sequel since its first announcement. Reread Fabric of Man to maintain a smooth flow. I was not disappointed.

    There are a few points that I would like clarified. Dolan’s first name in Fabric was Thomas. In Point, it is Timothy. Mize’s first name went from Kevin to Durne. That was a bit confusing. When the guard at the gate of the Castel comes out to “help” Franzi, he locks the gate. Yet Franzi has to climb the gate to open it. What happened to the keys that the guard used to lock the gate?

    Nevertheless, I truly enjoyed the book and await the 3rd. I am particularly looking forward to following the development of Jesus 1 & 2 and of Mohammed.

      You are the best. I need you on the editing team. All points are correct and will be corrected in a revision.
      Keeping everything straight is one of the most challenging things I have found.

        I’ve been a University prof for decades. Editing is something I do on a daily basis. I am good at it.
        Sounds like fun. What does it pay? 🙂

          Hey Steve,

          The pay scale is correlated to income generated by a self-published author, which is the universal math maxim, anything times zero is zero.

          Really like your photography.

    Loved both books, and do hope it doesn’t take as long to publish next book. I was SO impatient waiting for PoM. Could I make a suggestion? In the front of the book, how about including a list of the characters and who they are in the story. Sometimes amid all the technology, I would forget what someone’s role was. I tried to keep a list, but that didn’t work either. Looking forward to the next chapter. By the way, I was really hoping Beth wasn’t really dead, but just kidnapped. Could you make that happen? Please?

      Hi Sharon,

      I have that planned for the next book. I’m on the fence about Beth. Cross of Man takes place in 2020 – I figure that is how long it will take me to get it done. I have another book I am working on that is getting in the way of Cross and a full time job, so things are moving slowly right now.

      Thank you for your note and support! Tell a friend.

    Having read “The Fabric of Man” which was an absolutely terrific read ,I am now hooked . Will Kobo be selling your new publication “The Point of Man” at the moment I can only see it available on Kindle .

      Hi Martyn,

      Yes. As soon as I can find the time,I will put “Point” on KOBO. It is a bit of a pain.

      Thanks for reading and the kind words,

    Just finished FABRIC OF MAN. WOW – could hardly put it down. Looking forward to reading POINT OF MAN. It really gets the imagination going in ways I never thought of before — but technology has so advanced in recent years — that what seems like a fantasy could become a reality. Scary. Thanks for writing — REALLy enjoyed reading this book.

      Hi Paul,

      So much time has passed since I wrote FOM, most of that technology exists today. There are still some big leaps that have to be made, but it won’t be long.
      Really happy you liked the book and took the time to leave a post.
