New Directions, and the Return (Once Again) to the Blogosphere

directionsI’ve been thinking about some new directions for Spiritual Drift (my faith-based blog site) for some time now. I’ve grown rather silent once again in the blogosphere, though my mind continues to buzz with thoughts on a variety of topics.

I’ve been kind of hesitant (gun shy?) about putting any of these thoughts “out there”, whether in the blogosphere or anywhere else on social media, as I have always truly felt there’s no form of effective conversation to be had from the back side of a keyboard. Even so, I also feel there are certain issues that can be addressed, and addressed effectively, to foster or stimulate some type of meaningful conversation face-to-face between people; whether I’m a part of the discussion or merely a flint that sparks discussion within your own circles.

Overall, for some strange reason, it simply hasn’t felt “right” not to throw my two-cents worth into the ring Continue reading New Directions, and the Return (Once Again) to the Blogosphere

A “Drifter” Update AND an Offer!

I recently posted this to my Facebook ‘Author’ page, but I wanted to pass this on to all of my faithful Spiritual Drift readers as well….

I’ve made a few changes to the publishing of my entire Drifter Series in e-book form, and I’ve decided to return to an exclusive Amazon publishing platform. This presents several great opportunities for you, my readers, and for myself as well. First, if you happen to have an Amazon Prime membership, you can access the Kindle Lending Library and ‘borrow’ any of my books through Prime FOR FREE!

In addition, it expands the reach of The Drifter to a broader, worldwide audience! Pretty cool, huh? It also gives me the opportunity to pass on some great offers to all of my readers, as well as those who’ve yet to encounter The Drifter.

So, in celebration, for this weekend only (Thursday thru Sunday), I’m offering YOU the opportunity to pick up the 2nd book in the Drifter Series, “The Plague of Grace”, FOR FREE!!

That’s right!   Gratis!   For nada!

Why the 2nd book? Well, the 1st, “The Path of Judgment” is already a great deal at $0.99! I wanted to give all of you a special “in addition” deal for being so supportive. Look for the announcement Thursday morning that the deal is live. And if you’re on Facebook, feel free to ‘share’ it with your friends!

Happy reading!

BTW, you can check out all the books in the Drifter Series, as well as some other cool stuff, and sign up for more great deals and book-type announcements through my exclusive author website: kentrobertsbooks.com

A Short ‘Thank You’ to My (400+!??) Readers!


I just noticed that I passed the 300 mark for posted articles on Spiritual Drift!

SD was started in August of 2011 as a way to catalog my (mis)adventures in attempting to reconcile my faith to the world of retail customer service.

Spoiler alert: I failed! Badly! And as a result, left the wild jungles of retail (after ten years with Barnes & Noble!) in January of 2012.

I’ve learned so much in the last 2 ½ years…much of it cataloged within the blog pages of SD. A few of these knowledge nuggets?…

  • The priority of family.
  • The vast differences between “want” and “need”
  • And, in the grand scheme, when given fair consideration, Jesus really did know what he was talking about.

Funny ol’ thing, that!

Though, as a family, we may be (temporarily) poorer in worldly goods, we are much richer in spirit, in character and, most importantly, in relationship with one another and those friends who’ve chosen to walk with us on this adventure.

The world thinks we’re weird.

I think that simply means we’re on the right path!

Thank you, my readers, for tagging along.

…and the adventure continues.
