The epic war for Heaven continues. End of the Beginning is the second, full musical novel of the internal struggles and external battles among the angels for the control of Heaven during Satan’s rebellion. This novel can be read independently of the first novel, First Rebellion, though the first novel introduces readers to the characters. In First Rebellion, Azarias, the leader of the seven Septemviri, searches Heaven for rebellious angels in order to offer them God’s grace. Satan rejects Azarias’s offer and instead begins to expand his evil throughout Heaven’s districts. In the End of the Beginning, Azarias leads the Septemviri to find captured loyal angels so they can help fight Satan and eject him from Heaven (into the material world). Like all the Angelic Wars musical novels, the reader can hear the characters sing by scanning QR codes in paperbacks and clicking hyperlinks in eBooks for a unique reading experience.Continue reading
Well, I think we have the final version of angel wings that will be used on the cover. After about three months with countless revisions through three artists, we have arrived at something unique. A “thank you” to several readers who responded on an earlier version of the wings. I will post the book cover within a few weeks. The book will be released sometime in late October, along with five new songs which are triggered by QR codes or links within the book.Continue reading
We are moving fast on the next Angelic Wars' musical novel, End of the Beginning. The book and music will be released in late summer, but I am leaking parts of it to followers of the Septemviri.
Here is a discussion between Archangel Michael and an angel who has reconsidered his decision to be a member of Satan's Legion. I combined the ideas of Anselm (an 11th century monk) with Exodus 3:14.
Michael lowered his sword and motioned for Malachy to do the same, the risk factor dropping a notch. “Why are you here?” “I hid in the structure of Sardis after the closing. I had to think about my past, my present, and my future. I compared myself, as a god, to the Creator. I realized that the Creator has no past, nor future, so everything is present—therefore, He is truly ‘I Am.’ But not for us angels; we are part of creation, so we have to think in a linear fashion—at least at this point of limited knowledge.”
Anselm, Proslogion, translated by Thomas Williams, Chapter 22, page 20-21; Exodus 3:14
By the way, a congratulations to Justin C. who won a $25 Amazon Gift Card. He was the only person to correctly answer the riddle of the angel's name in the last newsletter. Her name, Leihja, is a scrambled form of Elijah. There are other aspects in the next book which parallel her with this great prophet. For those who tried and didn't get it right, don't be discouraged. There are more Angelic Wars' contests in the future.
A BIG congratulations to Nancy W. for winning the monthly Angelic Wars t-shirt. The drawing asked the reader “what was your favorite scene?” Nancy chose the final scene in the book where the Septemviri were equipped for fight spiritual warfare with armor described in Ephesians 6.
