Three concentric circles based upon the circle of life of a butterfly:
Larva. Pupa. Butterfly.
Let me tell you of a story about two brothers
Sons of the immortal demonic impulse known as Death
For centuries, groomed to succeed their father
One brother, the Wolf, is the judge of souls
The other, known as the Coyote, thirsts for the blood of the innocent and not so innocent alike
Time and again, across countless lifetimes, the brothers have battled
This is their story
A whole bunch of years ago, I was hired to write a feature screenplay for a producer of some note. That one action-packed script involving demons and monsters evolved into an entire trilogy and about a year and a half of my life working on this massive project. Long story short (no pun intended) the project stalled right around the time podcasting became my full-time career. I had immersed myself into the idea of demons for so long that I couldn’t stop thinking about them… but this time it was more about the demons inside of us as opposed to the movie-monster kind.
And it was this idea about the unseen forces (and voices) that compel us to do terrible things that became the genesis for Shadow Falls. The original audio-drama was very cryptic on purpose and I ended up being very thankful that circumstances dictated changing to a novel format because I felt like I could finally fully explore this humongously epic tale that had begun to spin in my head.
So, as I currently see it the three worlds/stages/concentric circles of the ANGEL OF DEATH CHRONICLES are as follows:
Pupa: Diary of a Madman and the as-yet-untitled Diary of a Madman sequel (currently in development for 2012)
Butterfly: I’ve yet to unveil any details yet but there is a finished and polished full-length novel manuscript that for now I will just refer to as “Fallen 8”.
A little crazy? Well, you be the judge. I’ve so far written 4 of the planned 6 books in this series and three of them are currently available for purchase. Stay tuned here for more details and if you want to see how the Larva and Pupa stages interconnect, you gotta read SHADOW FALLS: ANGEL OF DEATH.
