Another late post…but unanticipated events happen that ‘distract’ or take precedence over completing a fiction novel, such as dealing with crazy weather—while much of the western US is drying out during growing season, far west Texas, desert country, is in one heckuva ‘monsoon’ season. Plus, phone outages, internet outages, and more.
Likely, Part Three of The Murder Rule will be the final part of this novel. Another decision I had to make with Part Three was this—who would become the narrator? Fictional pop-culture pundit Lloyd Denholm narrated Part One and fictional prodigal band roadie Bobby Jones narrated Part Two, so would another character narrate Part Three? In Part Three, a major support character of The Prodigal Band Trilogy, prodigal band Sound Unltd manager Joe Phillips—the son of the evil Baron Torquay-Lambourgeau—becomes the main character. For he knows first-hand the evil that inhabits this world and that must be defeated; in Chapter Twelve of The Prodigal Band, Phillips accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and later, his evil father repents of his many evil deeds and the baron, too, accepts Christ. But having to choose between Phillips and pundit Lloyd Denholm, I chose Denholm to be the narrator…for Denholm is tasked by his employer, the alternative pop-culture magazine, X-Zine, to investigate a series of events that Phillips plays roles in as he exposes the evil in this world—a world that could be on the cusp of what many preachers consider the Biblical ‘end times.’
And what with so many preachers and folks in various religions claiming this world truly is on that cusp, Part Three is being set in the time frame of the present day. I just haven’t chosen a particular year yet. But 2023 or 2024 would seem like a place to start (and, at the final edit of the novel, I could change the date if you know what I mean!).

I am nearly finished with Part Two of The Murder Rule and wondering how I will begin Part Three, which could be the final part of this novel…or not. Hopefully, Part Two will finish by the end of August and Part Three will begin in September.
I have already covered various spiritual and other inspirations for my The Prodigal Band Trilogy and its spin-off, The Murder Rule: Bible scripture and parables, occult and New Age beliefs, rock music, popular culture, occult symbols and rituals, good vs. evil, and more. The articles listed in the menu item Links to All Snippet Posts provide coverage of this topic.
However, I need to point out one more popular culture item not mentioned because this novel, which became a four-part-mini-series that I watched over VHS tape in the mid-90s, definitely helped inspire my trilogy—Stephen King’s The Stand. I am bringing this up now because I recently watched a ‘fan edit’ of this video series on YouTube here, in which nearly the entire series is included (a few parts were left out that likely don’t matter anyway). While watching this nearly six-hour video, I saw parts of it that I remember helped inspire the trilogy, especially the first novel, Battle of the Band. If you’ve never seen the series (even if you read the novel, which I have not), I recommend you watch the whole video, in whole or in parts. (Note: there were changes made in the video series such that there are differences between the novel and the video series.)

Sorry I have not posted here since July 12, and it is already August! But when family members come out to visit and you have to go to El Paso for eye exams and you develop nasal issues with a deviated septum and it takes a week or so to get back to normal…
This snippet post concerns Part Two of The Murder Rule, where lead character Bobby Jones has a decision to make regarding his mid-level membership in the New Age and (satanic) Corion-worshiping cult founded by the evil Swami Negran, the Church of the Circle of Unity. He had also been a member of a Christian church in the fictitious Bay Area city of Richmont led by a pastor, Ike Lawson, who tried to get the prodigal band Sound Unltd—Bobby was a temporary roadie for them in 1993—banned from the USA. When Lawson refused to consider the possibility that even the ‘devil worshiping’ Sound Unltd could accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (which they did, in 2001), which Bobby had brought up with Lawson, Bobby then left that church for good. Then he committed to the Richmont Circle of Unity church led by the evil Cole Blessing (the main ‘bad guy’ in the trilogy second novel, The Prophesied Band), became mid-level, level twenty, and mentored young initiates, including one named ‘Cordian,’ who would bully Bobby in ‘initiation sessions’ that Bobby led.
But on the night of May 1, 1996, an event happened that Bobby witnessed which traumatized him far more than any bully could! It happened in the basement of Cole Blessing’s new St. Xenos ‘church’ palatial estate. Being level twenty, Bobby was forced to watch the event (as did ‘Cordian’ and others). Also mentioned in this snippet is the main bad guy in the third trilogy novel, The Prodigal Band, Mark Besst, a tech oligarch who became inhabited by the satanic Corion.

Part of what the Davos Crowd ‘Great Reset’ plan for 2030 and beyond has to do with population reduction and eugenics. The now-destroyed ‘Georgia Guidestones’ mentioned reducing the world’s population to half-a-million people. Do the research and figure this scenario out for yourself, as it has been in the works for a long time. Their ‘god,’ Satan aka Lucifer, requires blood after all…as do many of the elites—modern-day Count Draculas.
This post was inspired by the recent US Supreme Court decision to overturn the fetal abortion ‘law’ in the case of Roe vs. Wade in 1973. And I am staunchly anti-abortion myself, for abortion is murder, as I have always believed, with the sole exception of having an abortion strictly to save the life of the mother, with the mother’s say-so in that decision (knowing that in the Bible Book of Genesis, Rachel, the wife of Jacob, died when her final son, Benjamin, was being birthed). Further, isn’t it a bit hypocritical to allow ‘my body, my choice’ regarding abortions—as well as ‘gender fluid’ changes and sexual orientation—but not allowing choice by forcing the wearing ‘covid’ masks, forcing one to get ‘covid’ ‘vaccines,’ or forcing one to get various ‘licenses’ to drive, work, forcing taxation, etc.? That is, if one can get an abortion, shouldn’t one also be allowed to practice the ‘right to travel’ enumerated in the Bill of Rights (technically, anyway, since cars weren’t around in the 1780s), or work without a ‘license’ or ‘certificate’? But that is what happens when governments elected by the voters become utterly corrupted…because ultimately these days, governments are run by their ‘donors’ so to speak—the banksters, oligarchs, royal families, and others ‘above the law.’ And who runs these folks I just mentioned? Why, Satan, of course (Ephesians 6:12, the ‘principalities and powers…wickedness in high places.’)

In these final snippets from Part One of The Murder Rule I will post ‘the pre-climax’ so to speak, not revealing the name of the killer of rocker Denny Spradlin in early February, 1996. But this killer did know the man Denholm spoke with in the second snippet, a former rap superstar and record mogul himself, now living in fear for his life should he expose the true killer of Spradlin, among other reasons, such as betraying his oath to ‘the Order’ that Spradlin also betrayed and who suffered murder over it.
Denholm knew that this rap star named ‘Drakk’ was also in hiding, but did not know where. But he figured Drakk’s lawyer in the record label lawsuit that Drakk had lost, because the other side had threatened and bribed the judge to make sure Drakk’s side lost, would know where Drakk was. The lawyer’s name was Wilmont. Denholm made an appointment with Wilmont to find out where Drakk was.

Folks, either I am going to write novels about why folks should at least consider accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (because no one should be forced to do so), or write novels exposing the evil in this world, a world ruled by ‘principalities and powers’ and ‘wickedness in high places’ (Ephesians 6:12). The Prodigal Band Trilogy is about a fictitious rock band that after serving evil, repents, and accepts Christ as Lord and Savior—but it also exposes the evil in this world. The novel I am working on now, The Murder Rule, while mentioning main characters that did in fact accept Christ as Lord and Savior, is primarily about exposing evil, and not just in the music industry. Part One is nearly complete and will be finished likely before the end of June, 2022. Part Two is more than half finished. Part Three (and possibly a Part Four), that will also feature important characters from The Prodigal Band Trilogy, will go much further in exposing evil.
The snippet post below, from Chapter Sixteen of The Prodigal Band, features one of the trilogy’s most evil characters who is nearing death, Baron Torquay-Lambourgeau, head of several secret societies serving the satanic character Corion, as well as leading world-wide banker and one of the richest men on Earth. What happened to this man nearing death was miraculous, and I will not provide a ‘spoiler alert.’ But what happened was inspired by the FACT that not all members of the elites are evil, and, in FACT, a few have actually repented and accepted Christ as Lord and Savior.

Hopefully, by mid-June, Part One of The Murder Rule will be completed (and then comes the editing part). It is mostly completed already. Part Two, featuring roadie Bobby Jones, is mostly completed but I need to manuscript the climax and leading up to the climax. Then comes Part Three and maybe, Part Four. The plan is to complete the entire novel, The Murder Rule, before the end of 2022.
This post is the one that leads up to the climax of Part One of The Murder Rule, where narrator and pop-culture pundit Lloyd Denholm begins to come to the conclusion through investigations as to who murdered fictitious rock star Denny Spradlin in early 1996.
Spradlin’s band mate Blake Fenmore has requested of the pop culture magazine X-Zine to have pundit and free-lancer Denholm to find out ‘who done it’ and how. The request was made in Spring, 2005. In this snippet, Denholm meets with Blake at his rock house in the Lake District of northwest England. Below is the snippet, copyright © 2022 by Deborah Lagarde:

Back in early January 2022, I put up a post here, mentioning a ‘New Years Resolution’ Christian authors might consider, especially authors of fiction, about using the writing talent God gave them to help ‘make disciples of all nations,’ a task Christ Himself assigned to His disciples upon their witnessing that He had risen from the dead (Matthew 28:19). The ‘guide’ is pretty much completed and will likely be uploaded to this site later this year as a FREE PDF for download. Hopefully, it will inspire Christian authors to follow that task! Below is a snippet of the first couple of pages, though I left out a few paragraphs relating to peoples who likely have not ‘heard the Word’ yet, but will at some point, as prophesy claims that before ‘the end’ comes, all peoples will be given the opportunity to accept Christ as Lord and Savior. Below is the snippet:

When novels are divided into parts or sequels or series, there always have to be connections from one part to another part, or the next part, or the sequel, or series or trilogy novels. And there must be connections to any novels of which they are ‘spun-off.’
The previous post entitled Proof that my new novel, The Murder Rule, is derived from my Prodigal Band Trilogy (Episode One), shows how the new novel is based on the trilogy. In this post, using characters that narrate Parts One and Two of The Murder Rule, there, too, are references to parts of The Prodigal Band Trilogy. The narrator of Part One of The Murder Rule is pop culture pundit Lloyd Denholm, who is the narrator of The Prodigal Band, and the narrator of Part Two is Bobby Jones, a prodigal band roadie minor character of both Battle of the Band and The Prodigal Band. Within a chapter for Part One of The Murder Rule, Bobby meets with Lloyd at Denholm’s apartment in the fictitious city of Richmont, California, in 2002, so he can reveal what he learned about the ‘suicided’ and murdered rocker, Denny Spradlin, that proves Denny was indeed murdered. The proof comes to Bobby from a prominent support character working for ‘the Good,’ the so-called ‘witch,’ Morwenna, who, along with God’s angels, the Tooters, guides the prodigal band Sound Unltd in their ‘missions of God.’ And a reminder: The Murder Rule is copyright by Deborah Lagarde and will be registered with the Library of Congress when officially published, hopefully, this year. Below is the snippet:

In Part One of a three-or-four-or more part new novel that will likely be titled The Murder Rule is featured the ‘suicide,’ which is actually a murder, of a minor character within the first trilogy novel, Battle of the Band, a rocker and friend of the prodigal band, named Denny Spradlin, front man of another Brit band called Wolfin. As with some of the prodigal band members, he is also a drug addict but is trying to end that addiction and find some meaning in his real non-celebrity life. He is also trying to leave behind the evil agenda within the music industry he knows he helped bring about.
In order to claim The Murder Rule is derived or ‘spun-off’ from The Prodigal Band Trilogy, parts of the trilogy had to come into focus while writing the manuscript for the new novel. In a couple of days, I managed to write two whole chapters that feature both the narrator or Battle of the Band as well as The Prophesied Band, pop culture pundit Jay Elliot, and the narrator of The Prodigal Band as well as The Murder Rule, pop culture pundit Lloyd Denholm. Lloyd, a Brit, moved to the fictitious California coastal city called Richmont, where Elliot also lived, so that the two could work on a pop culture magazine project about the history of rock music into the 90s and 2000s. But the topic of Spradlin’s demise kept cropping up in conversations between the two, due to the fact that various other rock stars of that time had also died or nearly died, rockers Elliot knew because these rockers tended to confide in him. Due to what Elliot had been told by some members of the prodigal band Sound Unltd and others, both came to the conclusion that murder, not suicide, caused Denny Spradlin’s death.
Two or more snippets from Part One of The Murder Rule will be featured in the coming weeks; right now, I will post a snippet from Part One of The Murder Rule to begin this series. I will not list the Chapter this comes from since I might change the arrangement of chapters and manuscript prior to publication later. And a reminder: The Murder Rule is copyright by Deborah Lagarde and will be registered with the Library of Congress when officially published, hopefully, this year.
