Some people may be discouraged, put-off, outraged, or even embarrassed by the imposing word “Glorious.” It holds a number of different meanings depending on how you interpret it. Oh no! Not another religious book! . . . pass.
Here is the skinny on the title and the context . . .
Glorious in this case, means epic, massive, enormous, mind-blowing, of biblical proportion. If you come from a religious background, then yes – there are remarkable similarities that stay true to scriptural facts. But then again, so did the Da Vinci code, (somewhat). If your interests are in action, suspense, and intrigue with deep characters and a tight storyline that happens to have a supernatural element with epic magnitude that make you think… ¯\_;)_/¯ ?????
My goal was to do something different with this book. This was written with the general fiction lovers in mind. No one had any issues with Bella (human) falling in love with Edward, (vampire), while Jacob, (werewolf), existed heartbroken— a victim of unrequited love. There’s really no difference in the structure of my book. Well… There’s not a love triangle involved in the storyline, but the flow of the characters in the layers are the same. I just use a more widely known supernatural focus with a bit more complexity and depth. Don’t get me wrong: I read all of her books and watched all the movies. The storyline was there. She used vampires and werewolves; I use angels and demons.
This first book is not about teenage love between a human and “something else.” This is about a young man who has had a very hard life that just wants to cause a change… and uses a corporate setting to do it. He gets in way over his head when he’s tossed into the reality that has always been there and is now very real. How would you feel about graduating from college and getting a job in a big company, only to find yourself in the middle of an age-old war and picked to be the destine leader of everything? That’s a lot of pressure for a kid. One of my national reviews called it a mix between Mission Impossible and, ironically, the Da Vinci code. That’s pretty cool, I’ll take it. Some of my more personal customer reviews said they couldn’t put it down. Well,… I’ll take that too.
When I read, I like to be entertained from cover to cover. That’s how I wrote this book. For those that have given it a chance, many thanks for taking it to the next level.
The old adage – “don’t judge a book by its cover” is cliché, but in this case very appropriate. Everyone needs to decide for themselves. Please don’t take my word for it, though. The first four chapters are free online at Amazon. If you want to see something unique and different, check it out for yourself. Sounds like a sales pitch, but it’s not.
If the word “Glorious” has people skittish, what is the word “Chaos” from the title of the next in the series going to do?
