Your Book Social Media Profile Awaits
For young adult and grown-up readers of all ages, finally a novel has come that is more than just a novel - it's a present-tense journey, adventure, and personal experience like watching a movie, with the reader imagining what things look like between the illustrations.
God called on me to help bring in the harvest, and as a result three years later "Littluns: And the Book of Darkness" was born and now self-published - to bring Christian and secular readers together in this one-of-a-kind journey and adventure..
A little about “Littluns.”
“Littluns” is a Christian Book for Both Christian and Secular Readers
For some time now, many parents, and others, have voiced their concerns about popular books that send the wrong messages to impressionable minds. Most of these people talk about their concerns, but few new options exist that have any appeal to both Christian and secular; young adult and grownup readers. The titles that have widespread interest have become more a peer issue than anything of substantive value. Some of these works have significant dangers where, as one example, some people would have everyone believe that there is good and bad evil and they support such popular books as “Harry Potter,” and the “Twilight” series, and the lies of Dan Brown, just to mention a few. Evil becomes victorious when good people (Christians) do nothing, and even they have fallen prey to reading deceptive books. Hopefully most parents can explain the difference, and hopefully young and old alike will discover "Littluns." But for that to happen Christians will need to unite because otherwise the secular media will only continue turning a blind eye to anything Christian, doing everything they can to smother Christ’s message.
The award winning "Littluns: And the Book of Darkness" is for you, your family, and friends for all reasons and all seasons with the most different reading experience you'll ever have.

“"Littluns" A Journey in Time, Life and Spirit!
One of The Most Amazing Books ever written!”
Film Historian and Theologists
Dr Joseph P. Sinda
A young person who read “Littluns” over a year ago, recently sent me this e-mail.
“…I truthfully don’t have enough viable proof to prove that god really exists, nobody does, but it doesn’t hurt to keep an open mind. This book changed my way of thinking and right in the middle I was crying in the metro train just thinking “wow he might really exist”…. This story should be the next big animation flick everyone has been craving for. Very good morals and story. Great for friends or family. Not like those new Disney films. Where’s the family values in those new flashy Hollywood scenes with bad vaguer? Good job Mr. Glamack you open my eyes on a possibility that might change the whole world if they give it a chance. Thank you for all your hardwork. Can’t wait for the next one.”

A World in Chaos
"Littluns" is about right and wrong, good and evil, His Light in contrast to the darkness in these end times. It is reality that is only framed in an animation-like Christian fantasy that takes readers into reality and truth; for the lost, and found, and everyone in-between. Animated movies have become extraordinarily successful because both children and adults have made it so. Now readers can experience both in an epic novel, where truth, peace, love, hope, joy, and the heart’s desire in Christ become more than just words, but experiences found under the very worst possible conditions in this one-of-a-kind journey and adventure like no other book or film out there.
"Littluns’" truth is self-evident in the facts for anyone who can see the stark differences when in His Light in contrast to those who dwell in darkness, and the inevitable end result of what we ultimately become through our choices, actions, and decisions one way or the other.
A little more about “Littluns.”
“Littluns” are truth eternal with no pretention of the facts in their pure lives.
“Littluns” live in peace and harmony within their protected land of paradise.
“Littluns” intuitively know the meaning of unconditional love.
“Littluns’” hope springs eternal for all good things in their lives.
“Littluns” joy comes every day in gratitude of God’s unconditional truth.
“Littluns” by their very nature are enlightened within a lasting child-like innocence.
“Littluns” being pure of heart in Christ will always fulfill their heart’s desires.
“Littluns” know all too well about the outside world and will have nothing to do with it…except for maybe a “Scavenger Hunt” once in a while.
Paradise along with paradise lost?
Littluns are “little people” who live within. From their very secret homeland paradise hidden within the impenetrable inner crater walls located atop Powder Mountain, to their homes and businesses built into the environment and community of Hollow Hills, Littluns symbolize all that is good and true as God’s perfect creation. They measure about three feet in height, give or take a few inches, and are usually well rounded in appearance, due to their insatiable appetites and the many social events that provide good reasons for good eating. They have very large ears which come in handy for hearing sounds at great distances, or for listening to soft spoken conversations ( you’ll never hear any Littluns say, “What did you say!?”); three fingers and a thumb, and furry feet with thick soles, eliminating the need for socks and shoes – unneeded accessories can be such a bother.
Birthdays are celebrated in a big way, but unlike the others in the land below, Littluns don’t measure age in terms of years. They sometimes refer to themselves as younger than younguns, younguns, middleuns, or olderuns, but without any number attached. They are forever young in appearance and retain a child-like innocence throughout their long life. It is estimated that Littluns live to be over three hundred human years, more or less.
Located high atop Powder Mountain, their homes are constructed into the hilly landscape of Hollow Hills and when completed, covered with clay, dirt, and grass that provide a protective cover against the elements. The windows are covered with shutters that open outward, providing fresh air to circulate throughout the home. Two half-circle doors open in and out where the inside walls vary between carved wooden framing around stone and plaster/mortar-like mud, to keep any dampness out, and a polished granite floor. Comfort is everything to Littluns and they’re forever coming up with new ideas and designs to expand their floor space, usually as a result of an addition in the family or the desire for additional party space. After all, Littlun parties can get quite crowded if one doesn’t have enough room.
It is important to note that Littluns have no need for gossip. Any Littlun can get published and just about everyone does. They write about this and that, so everyone knows what’s on their minds. The ‘Littleton Press’ prints a bi-weekly newspaper, and other stories and informational topics become books. The most popular are the “How to” books, about family, new building techniques, gardening, fishing, how to play better Crick-golf, vacation spots, and of course, the latest cookbooks. Mystery novels are also very popular. More organized shelf space for their personal libraries is another good reason for expansion.
Every Littlun is taught, from a very young age, that stealing is wrong and no Littlun would even consider such an act, and telling any lie would not even occur to them. It just wouldn’t be Littlun.
The end of days begins when five Littluns journey down from their secret mountaintop homeland on what should be a cautious, but pleasant ‘Scavenger Hunt’ outing.
For these pure ‘little people,’ what awaits them could not have been anticipated or even imagined. The results and consequences are however unavoidable. Darkness has come, and is spreading its evil influences to the land below on the eve of destruction and extermination.
Disguised as a human and Necromancer, he has placed most of his dark powers into words; words reserved for his wicked purposes. But ‘The Evil One’s’ ominous Dark Book becomes lost, resulting in him becoming trapped somewhere between the living and the corrupted dead. He must have his book back at all costs.
Littluns is a story for all ages; an adventure of a lifetime depicting everyone’s journey through life while facing choices for His Light, or darkness.
…and nothing will ever be the same.

Young adult readers and grownups of all ages will find Littluns to be a dangerous journey into our future, generic current events in the news ranging from those things found in the darkest recesses of evil; manipulations of the facts, terrorism, and untruths, to the opposite end of the spectrum for all things good in His Light.
If any reader is looking for something to stir their every emotion in God’s truth of what it means to be a true Christian in these end of days; an animation-like novel that takes readers into Christian reality and Christ’s uncompromising truth in an epic adventure while discovering what a very different reading experience is really like, and also offer them something that they can’t get anywhere else while hopefully guiding them to THE BOOK, the Bible – they would find it in “Littluns.” Is that not what God is calling us to do; reaching the masses trying to get through the day to day trials of life and who sooner or later realize that there MUST be more to life, and that something is missing in them? Is that not something all true Christians should be concentrating on? If not us united, then who?
I hope and pray that Christian voices will someday become louder than anything the secular media throws at us. “Littluns” has the potential of doing that, and in God’s perfect timing His will be done.
