More information on C&D2!!!

Aug 1, 2020 | Behind the Scenes, Declarations | 4 comments

I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for a release date and whatnot. I can’t quite give that out yet, but here’s some things along those line.

C&D has a publisher now!

More details will be coming soon. I will say that they have been a pleasure to work with, and I think you’ll agree they did a fantastic job. But as I said, more details will be coming soon.

C&D1 will be reissued!

Because Amazon does not allow a book to be transferred between publishing accounts, we decided the best option was to republish C&D1 with a fantastic new cover and better formatting than the O&H Books edition. Unfortunately, we cannot make this change to older ebook copies (and obviously not older print copies) because it’s a different edition. We have added nothing and changed nothing but minor fixes. Two or three minor changes for consistency could be called, if you tried hard enough, retcons, but, no, really, it’s the same book. Greedo does not shoot first.

It’s up to you if you want the newer edition or not, but both are still the same book. The old edition will be taken down some time after Amazon links them, and then we’ll have the newer edition. C&D will remain in KU.

We also will have a second hardback edition and third paperback edition, with vastly improved formatting. We’ll have even more details August 15th, along with a cover reveal!

C&D2 will come out in October or November THIS YEAR!!!

You heard it right. This is not quite a release date yet, but this is definitely a release date range. We’ll have more details–and an exact day–as the time approaches. I’m sure you’ll all enjoy it!


  1. Hooray! I can’t wait

  2. Very much looking forward to it. Thanks for letting us know!

  3. Oh jeez. I only read the first book this summer, but man am I excited for more.

  4. Yay! Managed to lose (as in, “uh, did I forget that in the train? No way… Nooooo!!!”) the hardcover some time ago, so I might as well buy the new one.

Are there games in Heaven?

This is a question that has often perplexed me, being player of games myself, for one cannot find a dogmatic answer to it, and this is perhaps for the best. We know that we cannot truly imagine what Heaven will be like, and that we have have perfect natural happiness and, of course, our supernatural beatitude, which is the point of this entire endeavor. If there are no games of any sort, then we will still have the infinite glory of gazing on God Himself for all eternity.
