The Quest begins here!

It was an exciting week as each copy of Quest for the Nails Print recieved the symbolic nail print. Every nail print on every book must be individually hand-driven. A very special thank you to Tommy and his staff at Pollock Printing in Nashville.

We met at the printers on Friday as Quest for the Nail Prints was shipped to the distributors! (I picked up a few cases, too!!)

Holding my first copy waiting to recieve my cases!
From there we were we off to APG (our distributor) in Nashville! I had 80 copies to sign for Media and Reviewers. I am overwhelmed and humbled by the response from reviewers and media. Praise be to God!

APG representative, Cary Johnson helps me by opening books to the signature page.

100 hundred copies with the hand-crafted display arrive at Promise Land Book Store in Paris, TN

The Mercers, owners of Promise Land Bookstore in Paris Tennessee. These people are very special to me. I had my first book signing there last year when my book was in the "test" phase and we formed a great relationship! They are truly a God-sent!

On Saturday, March 26, 2011 Quest for the Nail Prints arrived at Family Christian Book Store in Bartlett, TN where I will be hosting the international release party on Tuesday, March 1, 2011. The book store sold 2 copies as they were assembling the display! It was so exciting to be there and sign the books!

Quest for the Nail Prints


Nail print touches every page of new time travel novel
by Memphis author, Don Furr

Haven’t we all dreamed of walking with Jesus? Wondered what it would be like to talk with Him as He peers into our eyes and tells us the secrets of why? Do you long to touch His face and callused hands, knowing full well that your only response could be nothing more than a trembling smile as He brushes away your tears and gazes into your soul? What if you could touch the scars . . . trace the outline of the nail prints, like Thomas?

Quest for the Nail Prints is the story of three ordinary people chosen by God for an extraordinary journey. A journey so amazing even they have a hard time believing that it is real. Through unrelated circumstances, Dr. Elizabeth Stewart, Reverend Paul Ryann, and Professor Leonardo Van Eaton find themselves sharing a journey to the Holy Land . . . when suddenly they are thrust back in time nearly two thousand years and find themselves face to face with the rugged, radical rabbi known throughout the region as Jesus of Nazareth.

This is the story of how a personal encounter with the living Christ in His time creates the journey of a lifetime! Not only for the characters traveling within the pages of the book, but for all who take the journey with them.

With thousands of books on the market, what makes this one different? There is literally a nail print individually hand driven through the entire book, from front to back. Why the nail print?

“The idea of the nail print surfaced during the first draft,” says Don Furr. “From the very start, I knew the part the nail prints would play. The idea quickly flourished into the nail prints marking every page, much in the same way I picture the nail prints touching every page of our lives.”
