GE Cover

GOD'S EYE

A little bit of spoiling here, but if you click the More Spoilers below, you'll definitely get some secrets.

COVER

Like with previous covers, I did my own drawing—a creature with angel wings and demon eyes embedded into the curve of the wings. Again, the artist ignored me. But you can see that alteration of the eye and wing in the final version. The old paintings of demons and angels being the same creature exist. That’s what he’s based on.

**God's Eye will be getting a new cover soon! This cover is well designed for print, but as the market has moved to e-books, we have to change to fit a thumbnail view. Keep your eyes peeled!

 

DID YOU NOTICE?

Katharine’s father’s secretary is named “Sharon”? In Dante’s Inferno, Charon is the guardian of passage into the circles of hell.

Also, Margot occupies a classic role of "shaman." If you read journey stories, there's a wise one who leads the way. Though I didn't want Margot to be one who only doles out wisdom, that's specifically a role she has.

RESONANCE

WHERE DID THE STORY COME FROM?

One night at dinner my dad handed me a research paper he’d copied for me. It was a theory on magnetic polar reversal. Harvard scientists proposed the ‘hotspot’ theory, and that true polar reversals were much rarer than the every 700k years a lot of theories proposed.

So I read the paper (during dinner), got up from the table, and began writing Resonance. I didn’t need any time for the story to form.

The old adage “write what you know” stuck with me since it was the first book I was writing with the intention of getting published.

The opening page (in italics) is all true.

As is the fact that the Harvard theorists say the magnetic reversals coincide with the five great mass extinctions. And that we are, in fact, overdue for the next reversal.

FUN FACT

The original draft of this book was 256k words. The final copy you get is around 140k. Thank God for editing!

PHOENIX

A little bit of spoiling here, but if you click the More Spoilers below, you'll definitely get some secrets.

COVER

The picture of the firefighter on the cover is not of Jason rescuing someone but of him being rescued. The artist (Dan Ruke) researched the proper gear for the time. It’s not modern. It's from the 80's.

And, of course, the reflection is not a true reflection: It's Daniel left behind.

WHERE DID THE TITLE COME FROM?

No clue. The book was called “Phoenix” from the moment it was conceived, and I don't know when that happened either. It’s pretty clear, though, that Jason is our Phoenix, rising from the flames to live another life.
