I was contacted by a publisher, who I was referred by another publisher. I do hope that you find it in your heart to help me out in this marketing venture, no matter how small your contribution may be. I hope to see you at my next book signing.
This book is a historical religious fiction that spans across all religions and teaches that we are all connected by similarities. It just takes the main character a bit to figure that out. It’s a story of loss, root cause of urban legends, myths, and how time is a circle that keeps repeating, always helping us to learn and grow.
Everyone that has ever read my books (as noted in the testimonials on the links below) have been impressed with my level of detail and how I paint pictures with my words. Readers are entertained, connected to the characters, and long for more in the series to read.
I published the first book 6 years ago.
1st Version- https://www.amazon.com/Eulogy-Centurion-April-R-Perkins/dp/1424177014
Synopsis- When a young farm boy finds love unexpectedly, he does his best to protect her; a twist of tragedy entraps his life force as his body remains, blackmailed into service for his Oriana’s salvation. Violent ends begin the cursed afterlife of the centurion who thrusts the final blow into Jesus Christ. The Archangel Gabriel becomes the ongoing catalyst as he creates events that bring about Armageddon. Fallen angels attempt to flout the missions of the Army of God. Raised on roman myths, the centurion’s knowledge emphatically alters as he is thrown into a world he never knew existed. Over time, the soulless leader begins to lose himself inside an indestructible body that is no longer his own.
I, then, published a revision with Tate Publishing company along with the 2nd in the series of 4. The publisher closed down due to breach of marketing contracts.
2nd Version- https://www.amazon.com/Eulogy-April-Perkins/dp/1630635790/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_2?keywords=eulogy+by+a+perkins&qid=1550348618&s=books&sr=1-2-fkmrnull
2nd in the series- https://www.amazon.com/Essence-Fleeting-R-Perkins/dp/1681879646/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=essence+fleetingby+a+perkins&qid=1550348660&s=books&sr=1-1-spell
Synopsis- Hope is a powerful thing. Hope can lift us up, implant the seed of pride, & than, tear us down. Walk with the cursed through the beginnings of faith and learn of the choices that may crash them from atop the pedestal.
The final 2 in the series are finished and need publishing.
Email from the publisher-
Below is the information of the things you need to know:
First of all, we want to republish your book. We will cover the cost for the republication.
Once the book is published, we will start the exclusive marketing campaign for your book. Initially, we will distribute your book to our partnered physical bookstores, re-sellers, and libraries nationwide. Your book will be available for sale at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million and other leading bookstores out there. You will earn 100% royalty per book sold minus the production cost.
Purpose for Publication:
· Re-pricing the book’s price to improve salability
· 100% Royalty Program – for you to earn more
· Accurate Royalty Accounting – for you to keep track of your sales
Second – Social Media Marketing. There will be a team that will advertise your book through social media channels such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Goodreads targeting potential readers in-line with your genre. When it comes to followers or fans, quality matters more than quantity—our goal is to find and engage with the most relevant and effective audience for you. The bottom line: We strategically research, connect, and engage with the right individuals and groups to help generate interest in you and your book. This is to generate hype and to let people know that your book is out there for sale. Without this, your book will be like a billboard in the middle of the desert.

I have been praying for a way forward so that the public could learn of this story. It is an allegory that anyone can identify with, especially those that have experienced loss. This is an answer to the republishing aspect of my prayer.

PublishAmerica Presents Eulogy of the Centurion by April R. Perkins
Frederick, MD September 9, 2011 — PublishAmerica is proud to present Eulogy of the Centurion by Corbin, Kentucky author April R. Perkins.
Have you ever considered what your life would be like without a soul? Would you even feel alive? The subconscious version of the mind would revert to the remaining survival instinct. When a young farm boy finds love unexpectedly, he does his best to protect her. A twist of tragedy entraps his life force as his body remains, blackmailed into service for his Oriana’s salvation.
Violent ends begin the cursed afterlife of the centurion who thrusts the final blow into Jesus Christ. The Archangel Gabriel becomes the ongoing catalyst as he creates events that bring about Armageddon. Fallen angels attempt to flout the missions of the Army of God. Raised on roman myths, the centurion’s knowledge emphatically alters as he is thrown into a world he never knew existed. Over time, the soulless leader begins to lose himself inside an indestructible body that is no longer his own. (Title) is the ongoing sermon of an immortal that ironically feels no longer alive and the commemoration of the losses he experiences.
“I have been writing poetry and prose since the age of fourteen,” Perkins said. “I have had two poems published and given Editor’s Choice awards on both All the Wonder’s God Has Made and Daughters of Season. I currently write for a business newsletter. I currently reside in Kentucky with my spouse, three children, and dog.”
“It has been an extreme pleasure to work with this talented and dedicated author,” said PublishAmerica Public Relations Director Shawn Street. “For ordering information, please visit www.publishamerica.com.”
