I decided to let my friends and followers choose the title of the new series.

 

Finding the perfect name for my new series is crucial [as I will be stuck with it for the entire 3 book series, I want it really good]  So here is the second round of names for the series. I want to thank you for your patience, effort, and time in helping me. It means more than you know.  

Remember that I am looking for something that grabs attention. As it sits on the shelf, it makes you pause when you read it:

 

Mark of the Creator

 

Rebellious Wings

 

Marked

 

The Gifting

 

Heaven Scent

 

Angels at War

 

Shimmering Wings

 

The Ushering

 

This is an apocalyptic adventure story, not a conventional sweet  angel based kind story. 

It is about angels and supernatural warfare. The superheroes are teens that have been empowered with the gifts of the spirit as their superpowers. It is not churchy… there is not a church in the entire novel. This is about a group of teens who talk like teenagers do and have teen problems. Yes, they are flawed people, like all of us are, and these flawed heroes have crises as they discover who they are. Despite their faults they have been chosen, but can they overpower an army of fallen angels? Will they succeed in finding their purpose before it is too late and God’s clock strikes midnight. A bit scary, a bit funny and a lot exciting, this new novel series needs the perfect name. Please help me find it.

Reply with your top three choices.

What would you title this story?

 I've gotten some interesting feedback on what I should title my new novel. Right now nothing is set in stone. I've gone from: The Escape to Ignited: The Beginning and now after some input, I'm rethinking that one. 

Premise: Teenage boys run away from a abusive home environment and find that they have been chosen to stop the ushering in of the unholy one who comes in the name of his father. They are endowed with angelic gifts, or spiritual gifts, to stop this fateful event. Will they be able to succeed? I don't know yet -- I'm writing chapter 19 now. You will find out when it's finished around Christmas time.    

What do you think would be a good title for this story? I'm looking forward to seeing your comments.

Sneak Peek from My Upcoming Novel: Ignited

An update on my up coming novel, Ignited:

Arland has the gift. He dreams dreams that come true and sees things, omens of events yet to come. In this early section he's telling his friend about a dream he had about his parents who are hundreds of miles away...because he has ran away. He thinks he's going on a simple road trip, but supernatural forces sidetrack his plans. He will eventually realize, all of humanity is depending on one fifteen-year-old boy--him. It's time Arland became a hero.  


This is a sneak preview from my new novel, currently titled Ignited.

“Well, my parents were sitting in our family dining room. Mom had a Yankee style pot roast on the table. For a while, they just sat there, staring at their empty plates. Then they accused one another for the emptiness of the extra chair at the table—my chair. 

“Norman, my Dad, yelled, ‘You should have known something was wrong.’

“‘How?’ Mom yelled back. ‘I’m not my Aunt Hattie. She’s the one with the gift.’

“Dad got quieter and said, ‘I don’t know why you call it a gift. It never brought her anything but heartache. Drove her to kill herself, that gift of hers. We should have told him about it before now.’

 “‘He doesn’t know that.’ Mom was still yelling. ‘He thinks he’s some kind of outsider, like he doesn’t belong—a freak.’

“‘What did you expect?’ Dad started shouting again.

“Then Mom started talking crazy like, ‘There’s never been a boy born with the gift. Not in all my family. When the doctor announced that it was a boy, I felt relieved. Then I saw his eyes.’

“While she started forking pot roast onto Dad’s plate, he said, ‘That doesn’t mean he has it.’ Dad calmly began cutting up the meat. ‘After all, it’s like you say, boys don’t inherit the gift. He hasn’t ever acted anything like Aunt Hattie did.’

“That’s when I knew for sure they were talking about me because mom said, ‘If he has the amber eyes then he has the gift. I know he has—he must.’

An update on the upcoming novel by Dan-Dwayne.

An update on the progress of my new upcoming novel. This one, soon to be released, is a supernatural drama with lots of suspense and even a few frights. 

Have you ever met someone who was gifted? I mean truly gifted with a supernatural ability. Perhaps they could see into the future, or they always seemed to know things, secret things that no one on the planet could possibly  know. Perhaps you have met someone who has amber eyes? If you can say yes to any of these questions, then the idea of supernatural gifts will come as no surprise to you. You might also know that these individuals are haunted by opposing forces straight from the depths of hell itself because a gifted person is sent to us when we are in the direst of needs. For the characters in this new novel, the need is great and urgency presses upon them. Look for this new novel on the shelves by Christmas. That means I have to knuckle down and decide on a title.

Songbird - is it some kind of code or an Earth Spirit?

In my novella "Pawns in the Power of Kings" the spies use a code word - "Songbird." Years before I drew this as part of my Earth Spirits series. It is titled "Songbird" and is done in what I call polychrome pencils. To everyone else that translates into 'soft colored pencils.' I uses a variety of brands some of which are no longer available on the market. Thank goodness I like to buy pencils when I see them on sale, but I confess, the different kinds have dwindled in number over the years.  Now I use more Prismacolor Pencils than anything. 


Check out my novella and see what 'songbird' has to do with this story.
