The Wayward Herald: News on The Hobbit and Enoch’s Device!

The Wayward Herald has been rather wayward of late (isn’t that the point), but he arrives once more with tidings from the Middle-Earth News. It seems that the film version of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit has surpassed the first two films of The Lord of the Rings at the box-office.
“According to Deadline, as of this past weekend, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey surpassed the worldwide box office take of both The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.”
You can read the rest of the article here.

Frankly, I’m not surprised. While The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was a bit too long, Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films built a huge following, and the look and feel of The Hobbit is the same. It was an ambitious task to stretch The Hobbit into three films, but I really like how Mr. Jackson is using the material from the appendix to The Return of the King to make this series a true prequel to The Lord of the Rings.

In other news, my own novel, Enoch’s Device, is now available in paperback from Barnes & Noble.com, in addition to Amazon! It’s also available as an ebook from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords. And you can read the a review of the novel at Leslie Hedrick’s blog here!
Until next time, good tidings and good day!
