The Most Surprising Thing I Discovered While Writing: The Blasphemer Series Edition

May 21st, 2020 the re-release of The Blasphemer Series is happening with the release of book one, Maxwell Demon. I’m thrilled that this is coming out again. This series of mine has been a product of many years and seems to be the underdog that never gives up.

The ups and downs I’ve had just getting this series out would be more than enough to make any author give up. From narrators becoming ill to them no longer wanting to take part in the audio book process. I’ve struggled to write the books and even struggled finding the right way to present them to readers with beautiful formatting, first by myself and then by staff of Three Furies Press, my publisher. Whatever has knocked my little series down has only encouraged me to pick back up and keep going with them.

Why? Why not give up? Maybe it’s my stubbornness or perhaps its my passion for this project. I really truly believe that others will enjoy the books as much as I’ve enjoyed researching and writing them. With all of that said, I have learned some things while writing the series.

The series isn’t complete yet, but 2020 will bring you both book one, Maxwell Demon, and book two, Harvest later this year.

What have I learned?

  • I have learned that I still love my characters and the books I’ve written.
  • This is the series that with simple character development as a kid, as a result I can relate the most to the characters int his series.
  • I have learned giving up really isn’t apart of who I am as a person.
  • Self-care is so very important. This includes standing up for myself and what I want with my own work.
  • With the compliments I’ve gotten over my ‘battle scenes’ I learned that I may be alright at it. These were the scenes I worried the most about written throughout all the books.
  • Anne Rice’s advice I came across long ago is true. I wrote what I loved and found readers along the way.

28 DoBR: Maxwell Demon by L. Bachman

This book is a shameless plug, but it’s a book. Maxwell Demon is the first book in my series The Blasphemer Series. The synopsis is merely the squishing down summarizing of how deep this story goes. When writing it I cried, I laughed, and really enjoyed the process that, for most writers, is never seen, but if written right the readers can pick up emotionally. The reviews say I wrote it well, but I leave it up to you, the person that may pick up the novella, to determine if you enjoyed my writing style.

This book in my words is a story about a fallen angel that fell in love with the first woman, Lilith, and fought in the Clash of Angels, but on the wrong side. He didn’t accept his punishment, being sent to Hell and the mutilation of his wings, and found himself a way back to Earth. He learned that Lilith too was punished but with reincarnation forever to live and die until she learns why she was punished. He believes if he can find her and help her learn then he can prove redemption and forgiveness is possible, even for her.

His has found her many times, but always too late. He has seen the soulmate die many times and in many ways. This book is her last life recorded, he learns that she will be given no more lives and she will be doomed to Hell, the place for the truly unforgivable. Maxwell goes to Hell when she is kidnapped, he goes through a mythical fantasy realm full of fairies, talking trees, and mythical creatures, and Earth to help her.

It’s more of a dark fantasy story with horror elements than a horror piece. There are references to so many creatures, here’s a small list of them that are in this book and this series:

  • Angels
  • Demons
  • Vampires
  • Werewolves
  • Fallen Angels
  • Witches
  • Fairies
  • Talking Trees
  • Unicorns
  • Boogeyman
  • Ghosts/Spirits

Synopsis:

Maxwell, an angel who fell from Heaven for his part in the corruption of mankind walks a plane of uncertainty on Earth. He was unwilling to fully accept his damnation, so he set out on a mission to save the soul of the woman he loves, Lilith. Now, more than a millennium has passed, and this is his last chance to save her and prove that no one soul is beyond redemption. 
From the gates of Heaven to the fires of Hell he has traveled to save her. He is bound to her by his heart and he will face the ones he once called brothers to rescue her. He will complete this mission.

She is now known as Adele, with no remembrance of him, their love, her betrayal, and it is up to him to show her that her life is worth more than she could ever imagine. He rediscovers why he fell in love with her and along the way, wages war against Hells greatest demons to remind her.

Who is destined to die? Who is destined to live? Who is the real enemy? Is one soul worth the world?

He has a gift of sight beyond what is normal… and he is not the only one.

The Blasphemer Series: Harvest Update

Originally, The Blasphemer Series was a straight indie published work, but it was announced late last year that this series had been picked up by Burning Willow Press, along with Human Ouija. This year, in January, the release of the first book Maxwell Demon occurred with fresh edits and a fresh cover.

It was thought, then that the series would release a book a year, so Harvest, the second book, wouldn’t be going out until January of next year, 2019, but as of this morning with a shift in the schedule, it will be releasing this year, in the second half of it. This comes as a happy surprise. As I gain more details they will be released so that you can stay up-to-date on all things happening.
