Updates and Amazon!

Greetings Fans and Friends!

Been a while since I've posted. Why? Well, I'm busy writing, that's why. Isn't that what everyone wants to hear?? So how is the next Tennis Shoes book (a.k.a., Thorns of Glory) coming?? All I can say is "It's coming." Soon I hope to post the Prologue and/or Chapter One. This is a structurally unique novel and I don't want to post something that will have to be pulled later because I have to entirely change it around. Soon, however, I'll probably give in.

My youngest son, Hunter Helaman, had his six-month birthday this week. Time flies. I'm also (between grueling hours at the computer) fundraising for a new film of my old novel, A Return to Christmas. Otherwise, I just slave away on the continuing adventure of Jim and Harry and Apollus and Meagan and Gidgiddonihah, etc., etc., etc. Until then, there are some great new novels and novelists in the LDS arena. Amazon is a very practical way to feed my family between books, and we work hard to keep our lofty satisfaction rating. Remember, on Amazon I'm known as FROSTCAVE. Here's some examples of new books and even some old classics that I came across:

In the last month or so I've also dusted off my manuscript entitled Muckwhip's Guide to Capturing the Latter-Day Soul, which I always thought was an extraordinary book, but my publisher at the time wasn't sure the market was quite ready for supervisory devils giving instrution to novice devils about ruining the lives of members of our faith. Anyway, it's my personal homage to C.S. Lewis, written with my own unique twists, and directed to LDS readers. I always loved this project and found it a great (and hopefully hilarious) opportunity to explore some thought-provoking philosophies. Honestly, there's NOTHING funny or entertaining about real demons. But fictional demons??? I think the market may finally be ready for it. Wait and see!

My best to you and yours this Valentine's Day!

Stay close to the Lord,
Chris Heimerdinger


  1. I can tell you I am ULTRA excited for Muckwhip's Guide!! Thorns of Glory too, but Muckwhip's Guide sounds GREAT!

  2. I remember Chris mentioning Muckwhip's Guide about 14 years ago and I think that he only had one spare copy then so I have been looking forward to the moment it gets republished and hopefully, I will not have to wait much longer. I really enjoyed Escape To Zarahemla and I am also looking forward to Thorns of Glory coming out, but as they say, patients is a virtue.

    I have read, or should I say, listened to, A Return to Christmas a number of times on cassette tape and I know it will make a great Christmas film. BTW, will this be coming out on CD also?

    Keep up the great work Chris.

  3. "Muckwhip's Guide to Capturing the Latter-Day Soul" Sounds classic - I want one......
    " but my publisher at the time wasn't sure the market was quite ready for supervisory devils giving instruction to novice devils about ruining the lives of members of our faith" Your publisher must not know anything about 'Screwtape' or any other literary classic works. Get a new one!

  4. So, THE question...is "Thorns of Glory" the end of the series, or are you going to keep going afterwards? (I am assuming that "Thorns" is the end of this particular story arc)

  5. You posted an excerpt from Muckwhip about 10 years ago, and I have been anxiously awaiting its release ever since. Take that as encouragement!

    Funny aside: When I was about eleven, I encountered The Screwtape Letters on a bookshelf at home. I couldn't really understand from the back cover what it was about. Then I flipped through and read a few paragraphs, realizing that it was one devil writing to another how to ruin someone spiritually. I was appalled and thought, "What a horrible book! Why do my parents have this in our home?!" :-D

    I didn't have the literary maturity at the time to understand what satire is, and how it's a powerful way to teach eternal truth. I wish someone had explained to me at that time that apostles have quoted from Screwtape in general conference. I would have had the pleasure of discovering the book and the genre earlier. Thank goodness I'd learned enough by age 16 to enjoy Swift's "A Modest Proposal"!

    I hope your publicist decides that Latter-day Saints will understand satire. Perhaps he or she can leverage the general-conference angle to allay any fears for the uninitiated.
