Have you ever wondered what Heaven is like? According to The Washington Times, with 84% of the world’s population being religious, most of those have a belief in a Heaven and a Hell.
And Heaven just got a little bit closer! In the release of his new book, “Scars of my Guardian Angel”, now available on Amazon.com and in the Amazon Kindle store, Russell L. Martin gives us a beautifully vivid image of what Heaven may be like. The elegantly crafted Christian Fiction novel shows us just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what Christians may be able to look forward to after the death of our Earthly bodies.
Quote from the Author
“After losing my daughter Summer Allyce, back in 2008, I have to say it turned my life upside down. I’ve loved the Lord all of my life but this devastating event drew me closer to our maker than ever before. Living a normal life and staying busy with making a living chasing Pipeline construction all over the country, I continued to live with a gigantic hole in my heart. I have to admit I lost interest in hunting, fishing, traveling even riding my 200 mph crotch rocket. I found myself being molded into someone I really didn’t even know. Time and time again I would turn down opportunities to go on amazing trips with some of my more adventurous friends. Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t walk around with my lip hung out thinking “woe is me”. I hid it well, this hole or should I say emptiness was deep down inside so that no one could see other than my sweet wife Laura. As I continued my Bible studies, prayer time, and just plain ol’ quiet time, I didn’t realize God was up to something special. He began waking me in the wee hours of the morning with the strangest ideas. Well you might even say a type of visions, because they were as clear as pictures hanging on a wall. This went on for quite some time until they finally became consuming and was just about all I could think about. Finally, when I felt it was more to it than a wild imagination, I gave in to writing “Scars of My Guardian Angel”. With my limited knowledge of writing, I thought I would get my message across with a small book no larger than a children’s book. Our Maker had other plans, and 95,000 words later, I have only just begun with the “Portal Series”. Says; Russell L. Martin.
The first book in the “Portal Series” is based off the true life events of the writer, paired with his love for his daughter, incredible dreams, and covered in a healthy dose of the Holy Spirit. It follows the life of the main character Chado Cole, who as a Christian knows that his death; is just the beginning.
Following a suspenseful Deep Sea diving accident, Chado soon realizes that God has much more in store for him than he could have ever imagined, and after being chauffeured from the bottom of the ocean by two child-like angels, he gets to meet his magnificent warrior angel “Uriel”. “God is giving you a little touch of knowledge, just take it in, it’s going to get better.” One of his tiny angels tells him.
After a trip across God’s creation and through a series of portals, Chado finally gets to set foot on the planet of Heaven where he sees his father and daughter for the first time in years and has a heart-wrenching reunion that will leave you speechless.
“Russell L. Martin has a unique way of writing that gives you enough detail that you can fully envision each and every fantastic scene, but you won’t get lost in the wording. It always makes a book so much better when you don’t have to fight your way through all the fluff.” says Jennifer Michiels, author of “Divine Instruction”. “It is such a God inspired work of art that every Christian will benefit from reading.”
Russell said, “When I was almost finished with the first book, I told my wife I wouldn’t be writing another one. Again, God hasn’t changed His plans. After my prayer time at the barn, He still sits me down at my lap top, turns the world off, and turns His movie on. I have surrendered to His challenge of continuing with His message through my hands in a unique way of sharing the gospel. Who knows, God might give me back the desire to pick up a fishing pole, but for now, it’s time for me to serve Him by continuing the “Portal Series”.
Russell L. Martin is a devout Christian with a love for the Lord that is nearly unrivaled. He’s a down-to-earth kind of guy that spends most of his days at home in Dry Prong, Louisiana with his horses, playing music, worshiping the Lord, and working on the next book in the “Portal Series” called “Bloodline of the Scrolls”.
