At last, the new site is up and running. It’s been a struggle getting to this point. All our efforts have been channeled into getting The Hebrew Kid and the Apache Maiden published and distributed. Unfortunately, the website fell through the cracks. But thanks to my friend Jackie and the wonderful folks at the Big Blog Company, the Seraphic Press website is here. As you can see, this is Seraphic Secret expanded; Karen and I will continue to blog, hopefully even more frequently.
Special thanks to Jason Maoz the Editor-in-Chief of the The Jewish Press, who lists Seraphic Secret in his superb Media Monitor column of Most Recommended Websites in the Nov 26 issue of The Jewish Press. Jason points out that the sites listed are in no particulat order, yet I cannot help but take pride in noting that Seraphic Secret is number two on his list. I also can’t help but kvell that this blog is in the company of people whom I greatly admire: Hugh Hewitt, Weekly Standard, Front Page Mag and Lileks, all of them articulate and influential conservatives.
In the same issue of The Jewish Press, Aharon ben Anshel writes a glowing review of The Hebrew Kid and the Apache Maiden. He calls it “…a compelling fable… and a facinating coming-of-age story that is difficult to put down, yet not too difficult for young adults to manage on their own.” I will add the entire review later on.
I’d like to thank all you who have told us how much you enjoyed The Hebrew Kid and the Apache Maiden. Karen and I treasure each and every letter. Your generous thoughts confirm our notion of Seraphic Press as a suitable matzevah for Ariel.
I’d like to ask a favor of all those who have read and enjoyed the book: please write a positive review on Amazon.com or on Barnes & Noble.com. These reviews carry considerable weight with other readers, especially Jewish readers. And we are particularly anxious to reach those who will want to know if the book is appropriate for Torah Jews.
I’m working on the next book in The Hebrew Kid series and I’d love to hear from my readers about what you would like to see happen in subsequent stories.
