Friday Feature: Fred Funk and Moonshiner's Revenge!

Today on Friday Feature, I'm welcoming Fred Funk, who's talking about his AWARD winning series!

This book will be out soon, but it looks like a fantastic read!

Here's a word from Fred!

My writing career started rather late in life, but I believe that I have found my passion. 
Ministry and Moonshine was published in June of 2012.  I entered it in the North Texas Book Festival and had no notion that it would even be a finalist and I was blown away when it won first place. 
Life and Death on Cannon Creek came out in February of 2013. 
Moonshiner’s Revenge, a sequel to Ministry and Moonshine is now available.  I wrote the sequel by popular demand. 
I am now working on my fourth book, The Throwaway Son. 

Moonshiners Revenge

Young preacher Matt Reynolds and his wife, Beth, spent two years in the tiny East Texas town of Pruett, spreading the gospel and making remarkable friendships and facing many unforeseen troubles.  As they prepare to move to a new town and a new beginning, an unexpected development changes everything.  Instead of moving on, they find themselves thrown once again into the peculiar life of the town and its colorful characters.  The preacher and his wife have already faced malicious gossips, murderers, bootleggers, adulterers, and moonshiners, and have come through mostly unscathed.  What could be worse than any of those?

Matt has never doubted that “The Man Upstairs” is in control, but he wonders what message He is sending when he must form an unlikely alliance with some of the meanest, most disreputable folks in the area to fight forces much more sinister than moonshiners.  He and Beth find themselves staring down a dark road filled with mystery and danger that could threaten not only their own safety but the very survival of the town.
