BOOK TITLE Satan's World
Satan's World is about my personal experience encountering the most dangerous being on earth and beneath earth as well. It was a harrowing experience and one that I did not expect to survive. However, I did and now I feel compelled to tell others of my experience, so they may not stumble into Satan's many traps that he has set for us all. That is why we are still on earth, doing are most to try to free ourselves from this terrible place we call home. It is not our true home. Our true home is in Heaven with our Father who loves us more than we can possibly love one another. That is why I wrote this book.
What are your goals for this book?
To reach as many readers as I can to inform my readers of the danger that is out there threatening their lives every day!
How did you come up with an amazing title?
It seemed a natural title considering what I went through and in finding out that Satan is in control of this world. It is verified in several places in the New Testament. For instance, in Revelations 12:7-9, John 12:30, 2nd Corinthians 4:4, and last; however, but not least Luke 4:5-8.
About the Book
Why did you write this book? Is there any “back story” that inspired you to write this book?
The whole book was written because I was attacked by Satan and his demons and nearly died as a result. I guess you could consider the whole book as a back story, as you put it. My most important intention was to inform my readers of the truth of their existence on this planet called earth. It is not what it seems and most people do not realize the danger they are in until it is too late. Once you die and find yourself burning in hell, you know that it is too late and there is no going back. When that realization hits you, then you know you are truly lost forever, or so it would seem. Actually, you can escape hell if someone will pray for your soul. I have done it myself. Our Lord God will listen and help them out of their misery and anguish. I wonder what it must feel like to be freed from hell? It must be a wonderful relief! Would it not be? Of course, it would be.
Is your book based on your own life in any way? If so, please explain.
Yes, it is based on a real-life experience and it lasted for three long years, before I was finally able to free myself from the evil presence surrounding my life. I thought for a long time that I would never see the day I would not be filled with fear. Eventually, that day came; however, it was a long time in coming and I had a great deal to learn before I could finally be free of that evil presence. I wanted my life back more than anything; the life that I had and lost, during the time I was under attack by the evil that Satan is!
What are your FIVE key messages or themes you want audiences to remember about you and/or your book? Are these themes relevant to current news topics, society, the world, or life in general?
For one, that Satan and demons are very real and they are constantly attacking us in various ways. Some are very obvious, such as the attack on me, and other instances they are very subtle. As this subject relates to current events, I would say this to your readers. Nikolas Cruz, the young man who killed 17 students and teachers at Parkland High School in Florida last February 24, told officers who arrested him, that he heard demons and voices, and acted as if he was unaware of what had just happened. Also, just recently in Houston, Texas, a man was standing trial for the murder of his ex-wife's family of 6. One other victim survived the shooting. Mr. Haskell shot each one in the head execution style while they lay face down on the floor. A 15-year-old girl was the one lone survivor of the attack. She survived by pretending she was dead. In court, the gunman, Mr. Haskell, claimed that voices of more than one individual convinced him that if he would kill all of these family members of his ex-wife, that she would then return to him and be his lover once again. Is that not tragic? So, yes, it strikes at the heart of current events. Watch for these signs yourself when you listen to the news reports. Sometimes they mention that someone who took part in some heinous crime, may have been hearing voices. A tale-tell sign of demonic influence. However, not necessarily a sign of possession. Demons love to break up marriages and cause accidents that lead to death and agony as well. This is the kind of thing demons live for.
Another reason is to hopefully help others escape Satan's world by salvation through our Lord Christ Jesus. A third is to let others know how much our Lord God truly loves us. If you read the Old Testament you will soon discover a vengeful and hateful god who shows no mercy, except on rare occasions. All of this gods’ subjects are frightened to death, fearing what he might do to them at any time during the day or night. When in fact, our Lord Christ Jesus tells us that our Lord God is love and the only truly Good person in all existence, for lack of a better word. Yet another issue of great importance is how we behave around one another. We must strive to love one another as our Lord God loves us and as He showed Himself through our Lord Christ Jesus, which was loving everyone. Even those who were very wicked. And, lastly, I would say that I would like for everyone to pass their books along to someone else to read. I think that about covers it.
If you could give your younger self some advice about the writing process, what would it be?
It is must harder than you might expect. It takes hours and hours of detailed reading to make sure you have eliminated all of your writing mistakes. And, be sure to always allow someone with no vested interested in your work to look it over and give you sound advice about the contents of your book. Also, it can be quite difficult to find a good publisher that will not gouge you for your book sales revenue. Search carefully, and do not rush to judgment. That is all I have to say on that subject.
What time do you usually start writing and what do you find the hardest part of the writing process?
I start writing at 3:00 a.m. in the morning and continue throughout the day and sometimes into the evening. The hardest thing I find about writing is all the sitting I do. It wears out my behind!
How has writing changed you?
It has made me more cynical about the book business. The experience has been interesting and I have learned a lot about the publishing business; however, it is more cutthroat than I could have ever imagined.
What do you like to do when you are not writing?
I enjoy reading and thinking about what I have read and I also enjoy computer programming. I am working to learn C++, which is a very powerful programming language. I also enjoy politics and science, and all of the sciences, including astronomy. I enjoy thinking about spaceflight and undersea exploration and I have done a bit of caving in my younger years. Life in general is what I enjoy. Not overly specialized; however, but broad strokes of life, you might say. Anyway, that is all I have to say
