Last weekend the digital version of Melankholia released, but as planned the paperback edition released on October 5th, how exciting. Along with this wonderful news, I made a small announcement. The announcement was about All of My Every Things will have a second edition run with additional poetry and the long awaited paperback edition, but before the second edition will release and the website posts about that let’s take time to appreciate that a second poetry book has been released.
This book is now live in digital and in paperback formats. It is the first book of poetry that I’ve branded with the Edkar logo. To learn more about Edkar read Edkar Press where I explain more about this organization method I’m using, i.e. publishing house. I have previously mentioned Melankholia on the website read What is Melankholia?
Melankholia has some selected poetry from All of My Every Things included near the end, as well as poetry written from this year’s Napowrimo back in April 2020, and a lot of recent works I’ve polished up for publication. All of this beautiful hard work is introduced by Oliver Sheppard. An amazing poet in his own right and I recommend checking out his work. My favorite is Thirteen Nocturnes.
All of My Every Things
All of My Every Things was previously published last year. It was a simple digital release with plans of a paperback release to follow, but never sitting well with me, I quietly postponed it, but finally with some polishing and adding additional poetry the paperback is coming. I have gone in and updated the book.
Harvest is coming out as a re-release November 24th, 2020 with the publisher Three Furies Press. This is just a reminder that it will mark the continuation of The Blasphemer Series with the book following Ghosts, coming out 2021 around August if everything stays on course.
The Interviewer is a mysterious figure that has contact with the characters of The Blasphemer Series and thus interviews them time to time. In this interview you will see them interacting with Imogene, a female character from book two Harvest. Imogene is a gifted Seer of the Present.
This particular interview happened before tragic events that unfolded in The Blasphemer Series. To understand better it is recommended you read The Blasphemer Series: Harvest.
The Interviewer: When you’re introduced into the book you’re struggling with withdrawals, do you wish you’d been introduced in a different way?
Imogene: It’s how the story went. I can’t change it or how I was living my life at the time. You’d try and find an escape too if you have my curse they call a gift.
The Interviewer: Can you share with us something we may not know about you?
Imogene: I liked cheesecake and coffee.
The Interviewer: Is there anything that upset you about the book?
Imogene: It seems I was almost forgotten except for Margot and Isiah. I miss him.
The Interviewer: Will we see you in future books?
Imogene: Perhaps. Not all of the stories have been told yet. It’s up to the author to discover a way to bring me back into the fold. I’m not sure how I would or my purpose. It’s not like I had much of one in the first place.
The Interviewer: Well that’s just not true. A lot of people like you. They wanted to know about you, your relationship with Isiah, and some even asked the author to do a book of just you. As a side-story type of thing.
Imogene: Interesting. It’d be interesting to see what the author would have to say about me in a side-story book. What would that even be called? A companion novel?
The Interviewer: Yes, that’s what those books would be called. So, Imogene, we know what happens near the end of the book. So is there something you wish all the readers knew that perhaps got left out of the story?
Imogene: There is something, but I’m not sure how well it would’ve done. You see the writer writes in a certain style that may leave out things. If the main character can’t witness it then sometimes it doesn’t make it in. It’s a mix of third-person narration and first-person. I’ve personally never seen a book written like it. I wish she would’ve left how I fought hard. How even when ingested I was kicking, screaming, and fighting.
The Interviewer: Do you feel you were given no justice?
Imogene: In some ways yes and in some ways no. I don’t want to really go into it. There’s nothing that can be done now.
The Interviewer: Since you’re on the other side is there any knowledge you can give us that those still living may not know?
Imogene: There’s a spy among them, but he’ll get his. He’ll flip and ultimately help them.
The Interviewer: Will you say who?
Imogene: I’m not allowed to.
The Interviewer: Is there anything you’d like to say to the remaining Seers, Briar and Dante?
Imogene: Dante’s going to be just fine. I am not allowed to say too much, but without him the world would truly fall apart. Briar is in good hands even though she doesn’t realize it, being possessed by anyone else would destroy her.
The Interviewer: Is there anything you’d like to say to readers or potential readers?
Imogene: I’m gone, I pass in this book. That’s no secret, but what many don’t know is I can now live on because of them. The author’s a bit weird, but she has done good by me by telling my story. If you read it I can live on in your memory and thoughts. I do hope you’ll read it. Please read.
The Interviewer: Is there anything you wish to say perhaps to Margot or Isiah if they read this interview?
Imogene: I am sorry Margot. I did love you and still do. You didn’t have to take me in and you did. You were a mother to me and I never appreciated you. To Isiah, I guess I’d say, I miss and love you.
Margot has gotten to read the interview and it helped her with her mourning. Isiah was too busy to read it. Read The Blasphemer Series: Harvest when it re-releases to understand all of this better.
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.
Dante Angeloft’s life consists of painting and occasional blackouts…until his grandfather’s passing opens a door in the darkness He’s much more than a mere painter. He’s the Seer of the Past, and he’s not alone.
Briar Bishop, Seer of the Future, receives a desperate letter from a village called Neverwas in the Mythical Realm. With the help of Dante, Dire Werewolves, and others, they know they have to save the village from the Dark Witches and their minions. What transpires leaves them with a realm dying and bleeding into the other, facing a dismal future.
Imogene Vane, Seer of the Present, has been running away from her destiny her entire life, but she now faces a Demon named Cuca and a Dark Witch known as Belinda. Her past haunts her present. The new evil has a name.
Harvest, the second installment to The Blasphemer Series, has released! For those that have grabbed their pre-order deals you will receive your book sometime today, for everyone else with it released you can now go over and buy it!
I will leave the 99 cent deal up for the rest of September and then it will end.
