I am fine, folks. Not sick, and in fact usually in March what with all the cedar pollen out here where I live in the mountains of far west Texas I am sneezing my head off! But not this year. No cold, no flu, and certainly no CoronaVirus!
And I have noticed in my site stats that I have had 6 The Prodigal Band FREE PDF downloads in three days! Now usually I average about one a week. So that six in three days is just….Wow!
And why not? Supposedly governments (as only governments can do, right?) are either forcing folks to “shelter in place” (as in some US and other cities) or “get permission” to go outside, as in France (I guess Macron is tired of all those Yellow Vest protests!) or other rights-restrictions governments are pulling over a virus that has (likely) killed fewer than a typical flu would. And speaking of flu…no one that I know of out here in my neck of the woods has gotten any flu yet.
So that if you are stuck in your abode, downloading a FREE PDF novel just might be what you need to brighten things up, and reading it, of course. One can also place this FREE PDF novel on their Kindles and other devices.
And I will continue my theme snippets of The Prodigal Band Trilogy later this week. Cheers!
My original inspiration to author the books of The Prodigal Band Trilogy was divine, or divine inspiration, my ‘mission of God’ so to speak, a term I use within the novels. But that was not the only reason for the content of these books: Battle of the Band, The Prophesied Band, The Prodigal Band.
Through years of research into popular culture, various brainwashing programs based on eye-witness stories, New Age philosophy and cult practices–I’ve known several individuals who belonged to New Age cults as well as bogus Christian ones, and of course occult groups as well–effects of drug use on various rockers and others including overdoses leading to death or near-death, supposed ‘suicides’ by famous rockers that may or may not have been suicides and were perhaps even murders (the ‘27 Club’ and all that…and now famous young rappers also appear to be caught up in that)… And then there has been research into Satanism, the so-called ‘Illuminati’ and other evil groups in that the power these evil ideas have on popular culture especially these days with all the symbolism shown in VMA shows and whatnot…devil horns, eye-covering ‘one eye symbol’ photos that seem to be everywhere…and the various websites exposing this stuff. Seemingly what began as my research began in the late 60s before I even considered writing these novels is now the norm. Back in the 60s and 70s, it seemed a bit extreme. Yet the most popular bands of that era, and their handlers, may have set those occultic scenarios into motion. I know that because I, too, dabbled into the occult for a short time.
I will say this, however. Without the divine inspiration, my novels would likely have played out differently. The journey of my six-member band, the ‘prodigal band,’ would have ended up on a different course.
Beginning next week this series of reality events and truths that caused me to write what I wrote will be posted, one truth at a time.
And, while fiction is fiction, there is likely not one fiction novel of any genre or kind that has not been inspired by some real event or truth in the life of the author.
As to the picture at the top of this post–“pearls of wisdom,” so to speak.
