Default Hello to all!

I am very pleased to join the forum. I am a Canberra based author who still holds a respectable day job in the public service. I have just released my first novel which is extremely controversial and some would say blasphemous. Needless to say, not may people I work with know of my little side gig! I have never been a religious person, but always interested in religion as a topic. As my years progress however, my atheist views get stronger.

Welcome!

What do you mean your atheist views get stronger? Do you mean activism? Congrats on your novel.

Hi, welcome to our forum! What's your book about?
EJ_Kellet was advised by a member of the AFA's Communications Team that he could spruik his book on the forums (but neglected to inform him that we don't like people joining up just to "link drop").

Given that he's joined up and introduced himself, without immediately promoting his book, I'm quite happy for him to give us a precis of his book, and a link to where it can be purchased.
