The fine folks over at Read2Review.com reviewed Eden and gave it 4.5 stars (out of 5). Check it out here.

Thanks Stephanie! 🙂

In case you missed it, they also did a mini-spotlight on me. That’s here.

I was also recently contacted on Facebook with the question[about Eden]: “Where did you get the idea for it? Factual Bible history? Artistic freedom?” (I’m paraphrasing)

My answer:

Gosh, I’m not sure where the initial ideas came from. Koneh is straight from the Bible (I *slightly* altered his name from the original language, tho not nearly as far as King James). Erzulie is a “real” spiritual figure in many cultures (look her up!). And most of the rest of it is my own warped mind: “okay, what if some of this stuff I’m reading was true – how would it *really* work if I applied science and my own take w/out trying to control a populace?”

Yes, yes — my work has already been publicly labeled “sacrilegious”… I know and I’m fine with it. 🙂 Though, so far, I haven’t been smote (correct usage?) for altering The Revelation like the Bible warns… maybe my days in Hell are just accumulating (like points on my license). I’ll let y’all know how it turns out.

For February 2012, Eden is the “book of the month” centerpiece over at the Literary Underground.

Check it out.

Yeah, that link will change after Feb 2012, but such is life. My “behind the scenes” info will live on. Linky.

Random other updates:

Work on Babylon continues… not gonna rush a book to print, even though I can.

I’ve also started a new novel based upon one of my flash fic pieces… we’ll see if that gains traction.  

The graphic novel work continues – got some more pages from Andres recently.

Some other projects (writing & otherwise) are still orbiting my center of gravity… when/if I have news, I’ll be sure to share.

Gotta talk to my #2 about that Babylon trailer… we have all the bits now.

I think that’s all for today!  🙂
