My latest release, “Point of Infliction”, is available for $1.99 until July 14, 2014!
Each time I sit down to write I have to have a purpose. Though my purpose for “Blind Thirst” was minuscule compared to that of “Tomorrow Never Came“ and “Point of Infliction“, there was indeed motive. I’ve gone from appeasing my inner supernatural geek to addressing the sorrows of our youth to immersing readers into the wicked veracities of the world. So, you may be asking, “What is the purpose beyond the pages of “Point of Infliction” (POI)?”
It is relatively evident what inspired this novel. It is dark, sensual, and several margins away from my past two books. There are bits of horror, humor, and remnants of love on many levels sprawled throughout. This embodies the human condition as well as the human ability. It is what we are versus what we are capable of. What I wanted to come across with this read was how desensitized we have become to the tragedies of the world. Child abuse, torture, murder. They have become so common that so many individuals bear no reaction for it. This piece also reflects on emotionally and mentally crippling traumas that some carry from childhood into adulthood. The impact of which are profound and nearly never-ending. Those woes thrive in the subconscious and eventually surface.
Derek Caldwell reawakens terror. The realness of villainy. The paralyzing fear of actually being punished for your wrongdoings. I wrote Caldwell as an aide-mémoire, but it is up to the reader to declare whether he is their version of good or of evil. The most potentially conflicting things for book readers to accept may be the validity in some of what he says. It is literally becomes a life through fiction experience.
