-- San Antonio, Tx- In an effort to dispel rumors of anti-Christian leanings, Fantasy Author Brian Stanford released The Mark of Gomorrah, the first book in his apocalyptic series on Sunday a few days earlier than expected. Mr. Stanford and his novel have received some criticism from local Christian groups who found out about the series, and believed that the novel could be anti-Christian in nature. The series, which follows seven people who are pre-ordained to change the outcome of the apocalypse, has opened to rousing success for a print-on-demand book. The book has been live on the Amazon estore for only 24 hours and has received a number of pre-order’s and confirmed purchases.
Author Brian Stanford continues to promote the book as a fantasy series. In a recent interview with SciFi World Limited, the author claimed that any anti-Christian notions are “completely fabricated or imagined.”
“I have never once, said anything that would lead a person to believe that I was taking on Christianity with this book. I am not sure how this rumor is continuing to spread, but it is utterly false. I encourage anyone who feels that way to read the novel first, and then point out the anti-Christian sentiments. They are not there. Period.”
To his credit, the author has been true to his word. He has responded to any and all emails about the anti-Christian claims through his website, www.markofgomorrah.com. He continues to meet with any press or church groups who request his attention on the matter, as well. The Mark of Gomorrah on sale now through the Amazon estore, and will launch on Amazon.com and Kindle on 7/31/2012. Mr. Stanford is working on book two of the series, which is tentatively scheduled for a 2013 release.
