Development Pitch

This is an engaging story of Power, Sex and Football. I'm pretty sure you will never read a Christian based story that is this powerful, it would make a great movie (as many of my reviewers on Amazon have added). This book (movie) would be controversial in the Christian community because of the sex and drugs that are a key part of the story. As you know, being controversial sells anything, but it is also a heart warming story with a superb ending. I don't think this story can miss, it has everything, a sexy good looking lead character, Football, Beautiful women, murder, sex and drugs. You really owe to yourself to read this manuscript, it could be the movie you have been searching for. Christian based movies do really well and this movie if done properly will want to be seen from all demographics, it will cross over to all genres. Take a chance, give it a look.

About The Author

Timothy D. Tims was born in Altus, Oklahoma and has lived there his entire life. Married to his childhood sweetheart, Amber, the two have one son, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and two grandsons. A lifelong member of the First Baptist Church, Timothy has always been involved in all areas of the church. Currently he plays guitar in the church praise band, but he has been a part of television ministry, choirs, a Sunday school teacher, and has sat on numerous committees. Two years in the making, The Manifestation of Caleb Lewis is his first book, and he felt compelled to write it. "As a Christian man, some parts of the book make me uncomfortable. I would look up at God as I was writing sometimes and say 'Really?' But God has a way of bringing us out of our comfort zone to do something that makes no sense whatsoever. I don't know, I knew I was supposed to write this book and that's what I did. I learned a long time ago not to get into a boxing match with God. The Manifestation of Caleb Lewis is a novel about God's grace and forgiveness, no matter what we have done in the past. My Aunt Linda, knowing I was uneasy with some parts of the book, told me, 'there is more sex and violence in the Bible than in your book. Quit worrying about it.' So...there ya go.
