BBC documentary’s uncanny echo of Seventy Weeks

I’ve just finished watching a BBC documentary called ‘Could We Survive A Mega-Tsunami?’ It’s a chilling drama-documentary examining the possibility of a massive volcanic landslide in the Canary Islands and the effects of the resulting mega-tsunami, especially on New York.

It’s as if the makers of the film have read my novel Seventy Weeks and dramatised one of its main events! In an uncanny echo of the book’s storyline, it demonstrates the enormity of such an event and alludes to some of the global implications that would follow, again as featured in the novel!

If you’re able, catch it on the BBC iPlayer in the next few days before it expires.

If you haven’t yet got Seventy Weeks you can order it in paperback here, or download the ebook here or on Kindle, Kobo, iPad/iPhone or Nook.

Some recent comments…..

Here’s a selection of recent comments received about the book, taken from the A J King page on Facebook:

“This novel is gripping! We darent put it down because the terror could happen to us tomorrow and we need to know how it ends. It’s believable and frightening. The End Times scenario is skilfully woven into detailed biblical teaching bringing the clearest account on the subject ever. And yet in all this darkness there’s romance to make you cry for joy, perhaps in relief. There has to be a sequel – and a film.” Andy in Portsmouth.

“I think that your book is amazing and I already can see it as a movie in my brain! I love the plot and ideas – perfect!” Santa in Manchester.

“Seventy Weeks is a brilliantly written, thought-provoking book which will challenge your world view and everything you think is “how it should be”. In spite of being a difficult topic, it’s an easy read, well presented and clearly written! Absolutely enjoyed reading it and cannot wait for it to be translated into other languages so I can pass it on to people whose English isn’t as good!” May in London.

“Seventy Weeks- gripping, emotionally and spiritually stiring and awe inspiring of ‘what if?’. Definitely recommend this book, one that you will struggle to put down. Brilliantly written.” Kris in Grimsby.

Thanks to all.

Somewhere in eternity time is running out…..

Set in the near future, ancient prophecies of the Bible come to life in real time. In a world shaken by disaster, Jack Ford’s comfortable life is suddenly turned upside down. Faced with grief and turmoil on an unimaginable scale, he comes face to face with his own eternal destiny. Meanwhile amidst promises of peace and security, a new world begins to arise out of the ashes of the old.

However all is not as it seems. As Jack embarks on the trail of a sinister conspiracy, he is reunited with his first love from sixteen years earlier. Caught up in a rollercoaster of subsequent events and playing a role they never imagined they would play, they discover who is really in control of the affairs of men. But can their astonishing discoveries really be true? And if they are, can they get the warning out in time? Or will the final deception be greater than the first?
