Hello Members and Guests,
I am currently writing a fantasy novel, which seems to end up being a trilogy. The work title for the entire series is "Ildur's Journey," and the first book is called, "The Book of Secrets."
I have always wanted to get some time and space to write a novel--preferably fantasy or sci fi, or both. Justin Coleberg, one of our Patrons and forum members, recently wrote his own novel called, "The Man Who Broke Free," which is at least partly based on the information in the Wes Penre Papers and the Gnostic texts (themanwhobrokefree.com/ ). It's available on Amazon at www.amazon.com/Man-Who-Broke-Free-ebook/dp/B08DWHMD4Y/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=the+man+who+broke+free&qid=1605373689&sr=8-1 . That book inspired me to start writing novels of my own.
My fantasy trilogy is (of course) also based on my work and Ariel's and my work, including the Gnostic texts and the WPP. I have put the plot in a fantasy world setting, but it's all an allegory of a few humans' spiritual journey and struggles inside this Kenoma/Matrix system. It's set in a fantasy version of Earth, and if the reader looks at the map that will be in the book, they'll see that it resembles America.
I am on my first draft, and I have so far written about 50 pages. The first book is estimated to be around 300 pages or so. I will of course keep you updated about the progress.
This will be in paperback, and perhaps on Kindle. My current plan is to put it on Amazon.
It doesn't mean I will abandon what I've been doing so far. Everything will continue as usual--we will post here on the forum, facebook, the blog, and other outlets, like we always have. The only difference is that every day, I will spend 2-3 hours early in morning, U.S. time, to completely attend to my book writing, and the rest of the time will be spent as usual.
I am excited about this, and I feel very passionate about the book project. Hopefully, you and others will like it, too
