An Unexpected Antagonist


‘The Council Of Twelve’ series is at a critical point at this moment. With the number of books, the tension between Good and Evil grows. The stories aren’t as innocent and romantic as they used to be. Of course, there is still a lot of love involved, after all, we are looking at the Good Side, Heaven,…

But also, there is the other side, and the tension in Hell has grown… Book 9 in the series delivers chaos, shows that there isn’t a mess mainly in the eternal fight, even Hell has its glitches and one of them is directed towards their ruler.

And here I need an Avenger… Alastor, the warrior with the golden spear. The Fighter for his master.

Alastor is a demonic evil spirit, very dedicated to the one who gives him a chance and entrusts him with a task that combines fighting as well as satiating his bloodthirst. However, it shouldn’t be forgotten, that this demon, as civilized as he can act, is still hard to assess.

Unknown and hidden he wandered among his fellow demon siblings, acting submissive and obedient, hiding his true nature and looks, protected by his master and commander.

He is not a fallen angel, like the Hellish Noblesse… he is a pure demon, but recognized by his Master, he is a secret weapon, for an emergency such as the situation that has occurred within the ‘Council Of Twelve’ series at this time. War… a war, worse than anyone on Earth will ever know.

Do humans know there is a war being fought among them? No

Do humans know there is the fight Good versus Evil still going on? No

Do humans feel there is something happening at this moment? Yes

They can feel the calamities, they experience the tsunamis, the earthquakes, the volcanoes, the hurricanes, tornadoes, the heat and cold, the fire, the temperature craziness…

In the meantime, the war goes on, the Archangels and Divine Warriors are fighting the darkness, the fear, the horror, the fire waves, the demonic influence, the legions of Hell with all their might.

There might be hope… but at this moment the odds aren’t good.

Do humans know that the Good side is fighting for them? No

Do humans know that their Creator, their Father, their Lord is sending them His angels to protect them?

Only the Believers… – only the believers…

Remember 9/11 – We Will Never Forget

On September 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people were killed, 400 were police officers and firefighters, in the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center in NYC, at the Pentagon building in Washington, D.C., and in a plane crash near Shanksville, PA.

[1] 9/11 was not the first terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. A bombing in February of 1993 killed six people.

[2] On any given workday, up to 50,000 employees worked in the WTC twin towers, and an additional 40,000 passed through the complex.

[3] After the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center, the rescue and recovery clean-up of the 1.8 million tons of wreckage from the WTC site took 9 months.

[4] Passengers aboard United Flight 93, heard about the previous airplane attacks and attempted to retake control of the plane from hijackers. As a result, the hijackers deliberately crashed the plane in a Pennsylvania field instead of at their unknown target.

[5] While video accounts of the WTC attack aired immediately, no video footage of the Pentagon attack was publicly released until 2006.

[6] Though both the police and fire departments of New York City had their own emergency response procedures, the two departments did not have a coordinated response plan to a major incident.

[7] In 2001, New York City fire evacuation procedures only required mandatory evacuations for floors immediately surrounding a fire. After a plane struck Building 1 of the WTC, Building 2 employees were initially told to stay in the building.

[8] The attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11 resulted in the largest loss of life by a foreign attack on American soil.

[9] 18 people were rescued alive from the rubble of the World Trade Center site.

[10] Cases of post-traumatic stress are common among 9/11 survivors and rescue workers. Respiratory problems, like asthma and lung inflammation, also developed at abnormal rates for those in and around the World Trade Center during and after the attacks.

God, our father in Heaven

Please, let us not forget, let the sacrifice of the victims lives not to be in vain. Please, dear God, help us to remember the sadness, the despair, the helplessness, the evil – for we also remember your mercy, your support, your kindness and your unconditional love that helps us heal.

Please, remind us to stand united against the evil on this Earth and protect us from further horror as it happened that day – 9/11 – when the fire swallowed our loved ones when the terror shook our world and the smoke darkened the sky.

We pray for your love and peace to the loved ones who had to leave us that day and who still are in our memory and in our hearts and who we never will forget.

AMEN


Reducing the Horrors of Book Marketing: An Interview with Sue Campbell

On Xina Marie Uhl’s blog I found this interview with Sue Campbell which might help us writer’s with our book marketing and the horror that comes with it. Thank you so much for publishing that interview, Xina.


Book marketing.

The very words make doom resonate through the universe like the implosion of a black hole. It sends perfectly sane writers running through the streets screaming and gibbering, while others huddle in the corner, under their desks, repeating in a zombie-like drone, “No, Lord, please, no.”

As someone who is getting ready to launch a zany romantic adventure called Lady Law and the Texas DeRangers, I’m familiar with both reactions.

Really.

~shifty eyes~

Seriously, though. Authors are well known for their aversion to marketing their own work. Most of us are much more familiar with and enthusiastic about the process of writing itself. But in today’s world of eight hundred gazillion books, you have to step up and promote yourself if you want anyone to read what you’ve worked so hard to create.

It was this realization that led me to learn more about setting up my author platform and launching my books into the universe. Tim Grahl, author of Your First 1000 Copies: The Step-by-Step Guide to Marketing Your Book, knows a thing or two about book marketing, having launched numerous bestsellers.

Enter Sue Campbell, author and Tim Grahl certified book launcher, who was kind enough to answer some of my questions.

Author Spotlight: F. E. Feeley jr. – Book Release “Still Waters” today, March 30, 2015

Welcome! 

 

  1. When did you start writing? Honestly, looking back, I’ve been writing as long as I can remember. From little bits of nothing really, to short story contest that I won during Halloween, and into my college career. Why it took me so long to pen a book, I’ll never know.

 

  1. What motivates you to write? The world around me. The things I see pass by me. The people I’ve met and fallen in and out of love with. Friends that I’ve had and still have. Life is the biggest muse.

 

  1. What genre do you write in and what made you chose this particular genre? I write in the m/m genre, or gay romance as some call it. However, Horror is my forte for the time being. I write about what scares me and right now, the world is a pretty intimidating place for gay people. I take modern issues, wrap them in things that go bump in the night, and have the reader consume it that way. Oddly enough, I think it’s easier to do that than to write a contemporary romance with similar themes.

 

 

  1. What is your goal in writing? Do you have dreams where your writing should take you? Oh God, honestly? I would like to make enough money to support my husband and I. I would like to pay off our house, pay off our student loans, and make a life for us. It’s a pipe dream, sure, but its still there.

 

 

  1. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and if yes, how do you deal with it? I do, on occasion. Some people write through it. I can’t. If there is nothing there, there is nothing there. The late great Robin Williams described being an artist to being attached to this stream of consciousness through a doorway. When that doorway is open, I write. When I don’t. I can’t.

 

 

  1. What advice would you like to give new, hopeful authors? Some would say write, some would say read and I am sure there is truth to both things, but I say watch. Observe the world around you. Take it in. And speak. Nina Simone said it is an artist’s responsibility to reflect the world around them. I take that responsibility pretty seriously.

 

 

  1. Please, tell us about your work. Well, right now I am immersed in writing a series entitled Memoirs of the Human Wraiths. These are stand-alone novels and they begin with The Haunting of Timber Manor, Objects in the Rearview Mirror, and the soon to be released Still Waters. Each book deals with a major theme. The first, is buried secrets. The Second, facing fear. And the Third, revenge. Where this series is going to go, I still am not sure. But we will see.

Outside of that, I have a novella being released through Cool Dudes press called Indigent which will be included in an anthology by the same name. That releases April 25th and it’s for a charity that will take donate all proceeds to homeless shelters in four countries, The United States, The United Kingdom, South Africa, and Australia in an effort to get LGBT kids off the streets.  

 

Thank you for being my guest. It was such a pleasure to have you here!!
