Hello everyone! I’d like to thank you and my wonderful host for allowing me to guest post here.
Let me start with introducing myself. I’m CP Bialois and I write in multiple genres from horror, thriller, epic fantasy, and now science fiction. I like a little of everything so I like to spread my wings and share my ideas with others. Besides, it’s much more fun to play without limitations, am I right?
Getting back to the topic at hand, I draw my inspiration from anywhere and everywhere. It’s cliché by now to hear that coming from a writer, but it’s true. The smallest things in life can often lead to the best stories. A perfect example of that is my newest book coming out January 15, 2014 called, The Last World.
Strangely enough, the idea for this came from watching a documentary about the making of the Universal classic The Creature from the Black Lagoon. As soon as they mentioned it was taking place in a lost world, the title and story came to me in a flash and it became my first ever NaNoWriMo project for 2011.
I find it funny in that my idea bears no resemblance to the classic movie, yet that’s where the inspiration came from. For all intents and purposes, I was in the right place at the right time. All I had to do was let the idea come and pay attention to it. Sometimes things just happen.
It was a great experience taking part in my first NaNo with this idea and seeing it grow into something I really enjoy sharing. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it and please feel free to share it if you wish.
Franklin Bowen was an ordinary man with anger management issues until one day he finds himself drawn into something he never believed possible. Thinking he’s lost his mind, he resists the urging of a mysterious figure named Tanok who only appears to him in visions.
After seeing the desolation brought upon the immense interstellar human empire by a virus from a neighboring galaxy, Franklin is forced to reconsider his belief in what is real in order to help Tanok save mankind from extinction.
Will Franklin find the strength he needs to persevere, or will the Earth and its people follow what’s left of his sanity?
