2. Describe your book ‘Holy Bible – American Standard Version’ in 30 words or less.

This eBook is the American Standard Version of the Holy Bible. I wrote this eBook due to the lack of usable navigation with other books on Kindle. With this version a specific verse, in any chapter, of any book can be found in a matter of seconds. I use this eBook at Church all the time and can find a reference quicker than someone that has the experience of many years with a paper Bible.

3. What was the hardest part of writing your book?

Getting the navigation right and making it as easy as possible to find any verse in the Bible as quickly as possible.

The Bible of course and the writings of Charles Haddon Spurgeon – Morning and Evening Devotionals, Treasury of David.

I have a page on Facebook and on Twitter @sherrardsebooks and I also promote my own books as well as fellow authors on my blog Sherrards eBook Resellers Blog I interact with fellow authors on Facebook on how to market my books will little on no money.

6. How do you spend your time when you are not writing?

Watching the Atlanta Braves Baseball, Reading ebooks by my fellow authors and reviewing them and lastly listening and watching news radio and tv by my particular political persuasion.

7. What are you working on next?

I am working on a revolutionary Bible Reading System that if adopted by Christians will transform their life.
