Brian Godawa, Award Winning Screenwriter & Author of Chronicles of the Nephilim On Course to Produce Three Audio Books of Saga To Date, Chronicles' Fans Have Raised Nearly Fifty Percent of Author's Production Goal Through FaithLauncher Campaign - A Favorable Indicator For Godawa's Timeline.
LOS ANGELES, June 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chronicles of the Nephilim fans are thirsting to download their audio versions of the (six books) saga, to the point that they're making certain Godawa has the resources he needs to produce them. All four of the first Chronicles' novels have been in the top ten or twenty of Biblical Fiction on Amazon for most of their release. Noah Primeval, the first book in the series, narrated by author Godawa, is currently available in audio format on Amazon with an audio preview.
"It's very telling the way fans are eagerly responding to support the development of the Chronicles of the Nephilim audio books through their undeniable support on FaithLauncher.com. Their devotion to these thrilling stories spun by Brian Godawa proves that this type of Bible-based literature has a very strong, loyal readership and that is also a colossal win in the Christian fictional literature space. It's evident that the fans intend to keep Brian busy producing Chronicles of the Nephilim audio books and support the saga's trajectory toward other platforms. – Fernando Chavez, Founder/CEO, FaithLauncher
The demand for the saga's book series prompted Godawa to make the audio books available for all those people who don't have time to read books. "I recorded the first audio book of Noah Primeval in barter exchange with a recording studio, Snowblossom Studio. I need to fund the next three audio books, Enoch Primordial, Gilgamesh Immortal, and Abraham Allegiant," Godawa announced on his crowdfunding campaign web page. He has until July 3, 2013 to reach his production budget goal of $6,500 and is nearly halfway there. Christian fiction enthusiasts are needed to keep that goal within his reach by contributing and spreading the word through their social media relationships. Godawa's crowdfunding campaign is full of great rewards with special thank you's for them and timing is crucial to help get him back into the recording studio.
"Chronicles of the Nephilim represents the new generation in novel writing. It's compact, concise, and fast paced. Intelligent yet entertaining. Godawa brings a screenwriter's sensibilities to the material that will draw in a postmodern audience that prefers books that read like movies."
– Jack Hafer, Chair, Cinema and Media Arts, Biola University; Producer, To End All Wars
Although giants, monsters, and men have filled the pages of every kind of fictional literature, "Chronicles of the Nephilim introduces readers to fresh, historically relevant, bible-based heroes, villains, and stunning creatures. The author's goal was to be as true to the original Bible stories as possible, filling in the gaps with Biblical fiction based on ancient Jewish and Christian traditions. Godawa's writing is extensively researched offering both a credible and visually exhilarating approach to Christian story telling.
"I've taken a lot of Biblical and ancient Eastern imagery like Leviathan the sea dragon, pagan gods, and the underworld of Sheol, and made them come alive as literal characters and places in the story. You might say it's my way of communicating theological truth through Biblical fiction." – Brian Godawa, Author, Chronicles of the Nephilim
