I have a lot of respect for the people of Israel, and if you read my blogs, you’ll know I would love to have visited the country.
While I respect the Jewish religion, some things are not linked to the Bible.
I can foresee a rush from writers on reading this news http://www.israeltoday.co.il/NewsItem/tabid/178/nid/32355/Default.aspx#disqus_thread similar to 2012. And what happened to all those stories in 2013? They ended up as dead books that shops could not sell.
I try to avoid trends, but my friend/editor in Seattle made the suggestion that I write an environmental disaster story as this is the new cash cow being milked – I may try.
