Frequently Asked Questions
What happened to your old blog?
I started this tumblr in March 2012. In between, I wrote a couple of noteworthy posts at my previous Wordpress blog (here’s a cached version of my explanation about self-publishing my 2012 book), but that’s about it. This blog represents a total reset.
I’d like to give one of your books as a gift. Will you sign and personalize it?
Of course. Send me an email and we can make arrangements.
Are you available to speak at our retreat/university/event?
Certainly. I typically do a handful of appearances each year. To inquire about my availability, shoot me an email.
Did I see you on the History Channel the other day?
It’s likely. I’m currently appearing as an, ahem, “expert” on a couple of History Channel programs. One is about the Garden of Eden. The other is called Doomsday: 2012, and is about that whole Mayan end-of-the-world thing. I think we filmed that interview footage in, like, 2007. A long time ago, back when I had spiky hair and a goatee. And wore a suit. Highlights here and here, if you’re interested. At some point, I was on a National Geographic program, too. Also about the end of the world.
At one point, doomsaying was my bread and butter.
Or it’s possible you were watching “Biggest Loser” and confused me with Bob Harper, the tattooed personal trainer. More than one person has suggested that we look alike, mostly because we both possess enormous foreheads (along with our strapping good looks).
I have some theories about what the seven seals in the Book of Revelation mean, and how they can be decoded using clues embedded in French currency. Will you read my 105,000-word manuscript explaining this?
Did you think the rapture would occur on May 21, 2011, like Harold Camping said?
Did you think the world will end on December 21, 2012?
Um, nope. In fact, I went into detail about why I wasn’t too concerned about the world’s end in an ebook on the subject.
I’d like to hire you for some copywriting or graphic design. How much will it cost?
I’m always happy to talk to new clients. Send me an email and we can discuss.
What are three things most people don’t know about you?
1. I can play the hammered dulcimer.
2. I typically compete in 2 or 3 sprint triathlons every year.
3. I will rock your face off with my karaoke version of “Pour Some Sugar on Me.”
