People ask me all the time, where I get inspiration for my books. The short answer is, "everywhere!"
The long answer is : read a lot, and I do have to say that there have been a lot of books that have inspired me over the years. Starting with Dante Alighieri's "The Divine Comedy". I grew up with that trilogy gracing the shelves of my home's library. And Gustave Dore's beautiful and intricate illustrations made me want to read it all the more. But I didn't dare read it until I was grown up. I think I was intimidated. I'm glad I waited. I maturity helped me appreciate that incredible work all the more.
The idea of a lost soul wading his way through an infernal Hell, and an angel--the love of his life--saving his soul all they way from Paradise. I loved the idea and I loved the books!
C.S. Lewis has also been a huge inspiration. As as child "The Chronicles of Narnia" transported me to...well... Narnia! As an adult, "The Screwtape Letters", with humor and sarcasm, made me think about what the enemy of our souls hopes to achieve.
There have also been other authors who in different ways have inspired me. Victor Hugo, Tomas Hardy, Charles Dickens, and many, many more.
But I do have to say, that the scirptures have inspired me the me the most. Nothing sends my mind into a speculative spin like a good verse from Revelations! When I die, I would love to sit with him and chat. Isaiah too!
As you read my books you'll notice that I've spent quite a lot of time speculating about Cherubim, Seraphim, Legion, and the infamous "whore that sitteth upon many waters" Rev. 17:1
Ha, Ha! I laugh, but I don't mean any disrespect. I just read this and I think,"what did John The Revelator see? Who was she? What was she?"
For this reason I request an audience when I cross over. Hope the line isn't long.

And if you are wondering what I did with this verse, and how I incorporated it into my last book "Endless", you'll just have to wait until this coming December 2013!

Polling Station

vote photo: vote vote.jpg Okay!
So after months and months of hibernation and ignoring my blog and my Facebook page and all things social, I'm finally coming out!

I've had a good reason, to hibernate. I've been writing the third and final installment of the Veiled Series!

ENDLESS is finally finished and revisions are under way. I'm guessing the book will be out sometime late summer. I want to give myself plenty of time to revise.

Between now and then, however, there are tons of other details that have to be looked at, and as is my custom, I like to ask readers for their input whenever possible.

The question at hand, is which Tag Line I should use on the beautiful cover that Jaimey Grant has created?

Here are the two choices:

Choice # 1:

"Death will not do us part."


Choice #2:

"Oh death, where is thy victory?"
(quote from the Bible that I use inside the book)

Please take a minute and leave me a comment with your vote. Thanks a bunch!
