Check: Science Meets Religion
This accessible, thought-provoking and entertaining book reconciles religion and science in the modern world. It ratifies enigmas such as creation versus evolution and God's position when disaster strikes. It shows the logic of life after death and even how modern scientific theory may explain the location of Heaven.
If you sometimes struggle with conflicts between your religious beliefs and science, this book may resolve those problems. And if you never imagined there was a sound logical argument for belief in God then this book might just prove to be your godsend.

If you knew Heaven existed, wouldn’t you like to be a part of it
after your life on earth expired? In biblical times, some 2,000 years
ago, people imagined Heaven was a place somewhere up in the clouds, but
that's hardly convincing today. But what is? Read this little eBook to
On this website I include articles that offer a few tips to other writers based on general techniques and tools I have built up over a long writing career. Although my fiction only began in 2010, many of the writing techniques developed over the years are equally applicable to fiction and non-fiction. Being aware how important it now is for authors to own their own website, I have included information that might help them with this. Luckily I have been webmaster of my own travel website for many years, which helped me. For more information about me please read my Biography. I live near Christchurch in the beautiful county of Dorset, in England.
Previous non-fiction books written under my real name of Ian Kampel are now out of print. I now write under the name of 'Ian Kingsley' because few people can apparently spell my real surname of 'Kampel'; that is a distinct disadvantage for an author! During my many years in the technical publications industry, someone once pointed out that an anagram of my real name, 'IAN KAMPEL', was 'MAKE PLAIN' which, they said, was very appropriate: for my job then was ensuring complex subjects were easy to understand for the armed services. Judging by early reader reviews, I have hopefully retained that ability in order to make 'Reality Check: Science Meets Religion' reader-friendly.
My Social Media Interaction
Twitter is my main social media outlet and it is where you can most easily interact with me. I would like to invite you to join them and follow what I am up to - or thinking about! Just click the link beneath my picture above. You will also see the latest count of my followers there.
If you're not familiar with Twitter, do be assured there are many people who use it for serious purposes, not just for discussing family issues or trivia. Most authors and celebrities have a Twitter account these days. It will only take you a few moments to open an account and you don't even need to tweet yourself; you can just enjoy the tweets of others. Use lists to home-in on the people you want to follow. (I hope you include me on that list!) You can read my latest tweets below if you do not subscribe to Twitter.
I try to post interesting tweets most work days. They relate to: writing, books, inspiration, philosophy, humour, dogs, love and peace.
You could really help me by retweeting (RT) and of my tweets that you like. That way you resend the tweet to all your followers. Thank you in advance!
Sometimes I blog, but when I do I always link to new posts from Twitter, since this is my day-to-day social media output.
I copy my tweets across to Facebook, but time does not allow me to carry out anything more over there, and that includes confirming friends. Sorry. So follow me on Twitter instead. I've learned to say a lot in a few words through Twitter!
I have posted pictures to show you the real locations used for my novels within the pages devoted to each novel. In addition to this, I have included further pictures of these locations on my Pinterest boards.
Some of my books are available as eBooks.
Did you know that you don't have to have a Kindle or special reader to read eBooks?

If you live in the Bournemouth area you can pre-order SANDMAN from my local bookshop: Bookends
It is good news for me, perhaps, that people sometime have difficulty getting copies of my book locally because demand sometimes exceeds supply. They are my locally approved stockist and do all they can to try to maintain stock on the shelf. The remedy, of course, is to either pick up the phone to reserve or pre-order, or buy from Amazon.

Please could you spare a few clicks of your time!
If you like an author's work, there is a quick and easy way you can help give him/her a vital boost for a few clicks of your time: via Amazon 'tags'. Just scroll down an Amazon book page and you will eventually find a heading called 'Tags Customers Associate with This Product' (see illustration above). Beneath this are the 'tags' that readers have already associated with the book. (If the link 'see all tags' is visible then click this to see them all.) The idea is that when people use search phrases matching these tags, the results will include this book; but Amazon takes the number of times a tag is associated with a book as a 'vote' for that tag's validity. As a result, tagging a book by just confirming existing tags helps that book to rise a little higher in relevant search results—and to sell more copies. You can add new tags if you like.
So please, if you enjoy my books, I would be really grateful if you 'tagged' them by confirming as many of the tags as you think appropriate. This won't take you a moment and those clicks and ticks will go a long way towards making it more likely I will be able to get more novels published in the future through greater sales. Thank you!
If you're not into social media, the panel below allows you to follow me daily without even diving in. Bear in mind each tweet is limited to 140 characters. That does make you concise! I tweet most days, so you can keep in touch! (And if you do get into Twitter, it would be fantastic if you retweeted my occasional tweets about my books. Thank you for your support!)

It is rightly said that "a change is as good as a rest," and that is certainly true for readers. Yet readers may not want too drastic a change, so the independent Literature Map is an ideal way of discovering similar authors to try, thereby expanding the number of titles waiting for your enjoyment.
I have included a region of the literature map below showing authors considered to offer similar character-rich novels to mine: such as Sophie Hannah and Richard Goddard.
Basically, the closer authors names are on this map, the closer their work is. So a glance at this small piece of our planet's literature map below will help you to decide whether my work might appeal to you, given you recognise other authors in this neighbourhood! Sophie Hannah is at the centre, and Richard Goddard and myself, Ian Kingsley, are at about 5 o'clock in relationship to her. (I have added coloured borders to make this easier for you!)
So if you like novels by other authors on this area of the map, I would be delighted if you considered giving my work a try. Let me know what you think when you've read one!
The Literature Map is a great resource for readers. Click here to display the fullest and most up-to-date version showing similar authors to myself.
