A curious start

Early Morning Writing A Blog
Writing a blog

It is a curious thing to start writing a blog post when there is as yet no audience. It feels a bit like talking to oneself. Yet, one has to start somewhere, and even though this blog or website has no visitors as present, it still seems worthwhile to prepare some content that might be useful in the future.

In the next weeks and months, I will aim to share some details of Martinus’s life from the sources that are available to us in English. These are mainly the “Memoirs” from a 1963 interview/recording, published in the magazine Kosmos, and some short books, such as “On the birth of my mission”. There is as yet no biography of Martinus in English.

I may as well begin with Martinus’s birth. He was born on 11 August 1890 in a small village called “Sindal”, in north-western Denmark. His mother, then 42 years old, was called Else Christine Mikkelsen. He was her first and last child. The identity of his father is not known with certainty, but Martinus suspected it was ‘Lars Larsen, the landed proprietor of the large farm “Christianshede”, which was later renamed “Kristiansminde”‘.


First day of publication

I’m pleased today to start letting people know about the publication of “In A New Light: Volume 1”. I’ve now sent people I know an email about it, and have sent my first Tweet @antonjarrod. It is an exciting time.

The book is currently available as a digital book on Amazon, Apple, Kobo and many other digital bookstores. It’s priced at between £2.45-3.45 (or $2.99-3.99), depending on the store. If you are based outside of the UK, you can get the kindle version on Amazon.com.

A paperback version is currently being prepared and will be available shortly. If possible, I’d like to also get a hardback version done at some point.
