dark side

Not a Fan of the Dark Side

I am not afraid of the dark side, nor am I a fan of it.  I prefer a world with no dark side, however I have to accept the fact that our world has a deathly shadow cast over it


I am not commenting on the tragedy in Boston and Waco, except to say both are tragic events that took lives and could probably have been avoided.  But that was then and this is now and i want to tell the victims and families of both that I am very sorry for their loss and that this kind of thing would even happen.


I am currently working on a third novel that I am having second thoughts about.  I know that I am an author in search of readership and therefore have yet to settle on any specific genre.  My first novel, Rescue of the Heart is an action packed love story.  The second, The Thorium Endeavor is a story of  espionage and introduces Agent 355 as a female assassin.  This third novel, whose working title is Holding Her,  is going to be about a serial killer who has a dark side that overtakes him and makes him do really bad things.


I have to wonder if there truly is a market for such a story though.  Granted, Agent 355 in The Thoirum Endeavor, does do some pretty gruesome assassination’s but it is a story of good taking the fight to evil and quashing it.  I am actually considering a sequel to this story.


I know that the devil is real and accomplishes his work through the use of people who are mostly weak minded and lacking in faith in God.  He is super conniving and bent on destroying all things right and good.  I do believe that is why we have so many bad things happening in our world, today. One day that will all be corrected when Jesus returns and throws satan in the incinerator that was built just for him and his cohorts.  Then we can have a world that is fun to live in rather than the fear we that is thrust upon us in  this one.


So, I’m unsure about this serial killer genre.  Do I really want my readership to wallow in darkness?  How about if I find a way to shine some light in there?  Maybe create a hero that can overcome this evil and thrash it within an inch of its life?  Hmm, I just might have something there.


Thanks for allowing me this counseling session.  I think it has done me some good.  You guys are good!  Ever thought of opening up your own practice?
