Discover Mad Gods

After a brief hiatus from spotlighting fantasy authors, I’m back with the works by Athanasios, an all around nice guy and a talented writer and artist. Here’s more about him –

Athanasios works in Montreal as a graphic/video artist, illustrator & writer in dvd production & film. He has been researching & crafting Mad Gods: weaving in factual & rumoured history for over ten years.

Athanasios has been interested in religion & faith since childhood. This led to studying a bewildering variety of beliefs from pagan, wicca, judaism, christianity, islam, to hindu, buddhism, shinto, luciferianism & much more. The interest made its own momentum & brought Mad Gods.

His other interests include most entertainment, from film, to television & books. He won’t try video games for the same reason he doesn’t keep his favourite booze in the house; he would do nothing else. There was a short time that he was into World of Warcraft but that became the obsession he knew it would be. He had to leave it for a deeper & more engrossing one: Mad Gods.

And here’s main event – The Books!

 

Mad Gods

The Antichrist lives. He is wanted dead or alive by Satanists, the Catholic Church and the Dark Nobility.

Kostadino must save him or let the world turn into hell on earth.

Mad Gods is the first book of the Predatory Ethics series.

Commitment

Adam watched Mad Gods drag his father to Hell.

Melusine Rothschild, Grande Dame of the Black Nobility wants to raise him. She is part of the World Elite that live by Predatory Ethics and seek to guide him in wielding the power and influence of his dark birthright.

Adam, the teenage Antichrist/AntiXos, wants none of this. He watches his TV shows in one of Danvers Mental Hospital’s nice padded rooms, snugly dressed in his own long sleeved, buckled, canvas jacket. He feels safe here away from a hostile, ravaging outside world.

He’s horribly wrong.

Myth, where truth and lies mingle among friends and enemies

I’m happy to announce the arrival of my second novel in the Guardians of the Word series – MYTH. Now available on Amazon and coming soon to Smashwords.

I’ve written before about the Indie journey, about not going it alone and how rewarding it is to be able to say I did it! Of course, I didn’t write the book without help. The idea for this book came quite a number of years ago when I was beginning to realize I hadn’t found the start of the story! I wrote the middle first, moved toward the end a few books later and arrived almost at the end when I realized, there were more stories to be told, necessary for the overall plot of the series on the front end.

I was sitting on the couch in my home in Montgomery, Alabama – talking to my now ex-husband about the story and about Maralt. Bad guys need their due, their moment in the sun, and so Myth was born to fill that necessity. I didn’t really want to go there, at first. I wasn’t interested in getting inside the mind of a truly evil person. After all this stuff has to come from inside my head, and I don’t consider myself an evil person. I’ve actually never met an evil person – bad yes, but not evil. A number of friends suggested I really dig into it, the things that make a good person fall into darkness. So with that advice in mind, I plunged right in, and the result is the birth of a conflicted soul who takes the hand of malice into his heart. That is Maralt. Myth is the story of how he got there.

Myth is also the continuing story of Dynan and Dain Telaerin, twin brothers who always get along and have never said or done a bad thing to each other. All it takes is one seemingly sweet Lady at Court to come between them.

Ok, that’s enough teasing, now for the link –

Stay tuned. Book 3, Telepath, is in edits and well on its way to join the first 2 of the series on your bookshelf!

Author Julia Crane – Book Spotlight

Sixteen-year-old Keegan is struggling to keep her huge secret from her friends—she’s an elf, descended from a long line of elves that live in secrecy alongside humans.

In elfin society, mates are predetermined but not allowed to meet until they are eighteen.  Against tradition, Keegan’s brother Thaddeus told her Rourk’s name because his visions warned him she’d need Rourk’s protection, especially since Keegan will play a key role in the coming war between the dark and light elves.

Rourk finds himself drawn to Keegan’s side every time she thinks his name. He wants to talk to her but remains in the shadows, silently guarding her every time she mentally beckons him. A twist of fate thrusts the two of them together when Rourk is forced to step up his protection and make his presence known.

An ancient prophecy deeply entwines Keegan’s family and the future of their society. Somehow they must find a way to thwart fate and win the battle…without losing Keegan. With war brewing, and dark forces aligning, will Keegan and Rourk ever have the life together that they both desire?
