Tuesday Toot is a semi-regular feature here at The Word. An invite-only series of short posts where writers, editors, booksellers and other creatives have been asked to share their stuff and toot their own horn. It’s hard to be seen in the digital morass and hopefully this occasional segment will help some of the quality stuff out there get noticed. It should all be things readers of The Word will find edifying.
Today, it’s Joanna Penn.

What are you tooting about?
Joanna’s 2nd novel, Prophecy has just come out on Amazon. Joanna’s style has been described as Dan Brown meets Lara Croft, fast paced thrillers based on religious stories with a kick-ass female heroine. The books aren’t Christian but delve into the myths and legends behind the Biblical stories as well as visiting places of spiritual significance.
“I looked, and there before me was a pale horse. Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” Revelation 6:8
The prophecy in Revelation declares that a quarter of the world must die and now a shadowy organization has the ability to fulfill these words. Can one woman stop the abomination before it’s too late?
From the catacombs of Paris to the skeletal ossuaries of Sicily and the Czech Republic, Morgan and Jake must find the Devil’s Bible and stop the curse being released into the world before one in four are destroyed in the coming holocaust. Because in just seven days, the final curse will be spoken and the prophecy will be fulfilled.
If you like fast-paced thrillers that involve spiritual mysteries, a dash of the supernatural and amazing locations, you’ll enjoy Prophecy. It can be read stand-alone but the first in the series, Pentecost is only 99c or free for Amazon Prime members if you want to start from the beginning.
Currently the books are only available on Amazon Kindle but you can also sign up to be informed of print and other ebook versions here.
[You'll remember I mentioned this book as part of my holiday reading a little while ago. It's a rollicking good read and very well researched. Joanna's background, with her degree in theology, really shines through on this one. - Alan]
