Meta Prompt: The answer to the meta is an author
Apparently, if you are a struggling content creator it really is up to you to get your stuff out there and in front of the eyeballs of potential customers. Social media helps, but these days you have to utilise every possible avenue at your disposal. Hence this puzzle, in which the answer to the meta is an author. (Google may be necessary!)

    I'll check them out one day; thanks, Ben!
    • benchen71 constructor · 20 days ago
      Two of them ("The Ephesus Scroll" and "Meeting of Minds") are available for free on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/BenChenoweth). As you can see, I have no shame in self-promoting! ;-)
      • DrTom 🤓25:44 · 18 days ago
        Well, I'll be darned you managed to get ALL 5 of your books in one puzzle! I just saw that Saul, First King of Israel is another Ben Book and had I been smart enough to notice the quotation marks I might have arrived at the end easier...as it was I had to be Pauled over the finish line.
        • Ergcat 12:30 · 17 days ago
          I’m going to read “the Ephesus Scroll”.
    • woozy 🤓8:57 · 20 days ago
      Ha, ha. I don't get the meta but.... it was a logical guess.
      • Dow Jones 4s · 20 days ago
        Congratulations on your 3 publications. Thanks for the puzzle.
        • Alex Sisti 5s · 20 days ago
          I know him!!!
          • Carolyn 3s · 20 days ago
            Wonderful meta!
            • Sharkicicles 7s · 20 days ago
              A very meta meta. Nice!
              • hoover 3s · 20 days ago
                Hmmm... What's the over and under on the number of variations of "Paul" received as a guess?
              • Bbaack 🤓12:23 · 20 days ago
                Third time is the charm, after Paul and St. Paul. I have the O/U at 32!
                • ReB 5s · 19 days ago
                  Same here. I guess I had plenty of company.
                  • Laura M 🤓7:24 · 18 days ago
                    Exactly the same progression for me :-)
                  • I K Snamhcok 1s · 20 days ago
                    Congrats on your publishing success, Ben!
                    • MeloMania 19:42 · 19 days ago
                      Nice plug!
                      • dplass 5:29 · 19 days ago
                        Oh for Heaven's sake... (pun intended.)
                      • Ergcat 12:30 · 19 days ago
                        Got it…. Finally! I was convinced from the start that the “author” was Saint Paul! ( his letters to the Ephesians, Corinthians, Romans) ! Lol! Finally googled the whole titles “Ephesus Scroll” “Corinth Letters” “Rome Gospel” and found your author. Learned something new! Thank you, Ben!
                        • DrTom 🤓25:44 · 18 days ago
                          EXACTLY!! Your path was the same as mine. Ben had us both fooled. Now had it been Saul Chenoweth I might have tumbled more quickly...
                        • whimsy 24:50 · 19 days ago
                          You're in good company I guess, Ben; right up there with Pete and Paul. Oh, and Goodreads likes you too! Congrats and thanks!
                          • Laura M 🤓7:24 · 18 days ago
                            I really should have figured that out sooner, lol. Very nice, and very impressive!
                            • Cindy Heisler 2s · 18 days ago
                              Very nice. I learn something new everyday. Should have gotten it from the title. Congratulations on being a published author!
                              • DrTom 🤓25:44 · 18 days ago
                                Oh, THAT'S funny my friend. I kept coming up with PAUL (which of course Crosshare told me was wrong) so I broke down and actually Googled the title that jumped out. Brilliant. Oh, I also ordered that book, it sounds fantastic.
                                • Teamdoubletow 2s · 16 days ago
                                  What a coincidence... An author with the same same! Love it!
                                  • Tyrpmom 7s · 13 days ago
                                    Finally got back to this one. The title makes sense now.
