The Last Apostle Selected as a Carol Award Finalist

Dennis Brooke Selected as a Debut Author Finalist

Seattle, WA, June 26, 2017



Made for Success Publishing is pleased to announce that The Carol Award nominating committee has selected Dennis Brooke’s novel, The Last Apostle, as one of 3 finalists for the prestigious Debut Author category. The winner will be announced in September of 2017.


The Last Apostle is an award-winning Christian novel inspired by the Book of John that explores the fictional idea that the apostle John never dies. John, restored to his 30-year old body, is sent on a mission from God with a warning to never reveal his true identity. The book gives readers a unique view of John’s everyday life from ancient times, running for his life on the shores of the Mediterranean, to modern day Seattle, facing danger lurking around every corner, as a television series threatens to reveal the truth of John’s identity and bring about the Apocalypse.


The Carol Awards are the annual American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) recognition for the best Christian fiction. In the past, recipients of this prestigious award have been represented by publishers including Bethany House, HarperCollins Christian, and Waterbrook. Previous winners of the Carol Awards include James Rubart, Kate Breslin, and Kathy Tyers.


Bryan Heathman, President of Made for Success Publishing, says: “The Last Apostle is a story I felt was destined for greatness from the first time reading the original manuscript. The story is thought provoking, emotional, and adventurous. We are pleased that the Carol Awards have recognized this author’s story which takes readers from ancient times on the shores of the Mediterranean to modern day.”
