Another quote from my novel, followed by the excerpt:
Ethan lifted his chin at the glowing orb. “I always preferred moonlight.”
“Hmm. Why do you suppose that is?”
“I don’t know.” He didn’t want to get into a philosophical discussion about light and darkness in his own life. So he lied.
“Well, perhaps your preference will change after tonight.”
“What? Why? I don’t get it at all.”
Malachi halted his sprightly gait, turned, and placed a hand on Ethan’s forearm. “You unmasked the darkness and that called down the light..."
In my novel, Ethan prefers the moonlight. He's comfortable there--where his past and emotions dwell. BUT, then something happens, and along with it, an opportunity to change his perspective. Question is, will he follow this new path into sunshine and light?
Are you curious?
Did you know that music plays a major role in my novel? I've mentioned it in past blogs. The prologue of my novel is actually a prelude--a song written by Ethan as a teenager. Music follows Ethan throughout the novel. So, I thought it fitting to create a playlist that follows Ethan's journey. If you're interested in listening to my playlist, go to my homepage and click on the Rewriting Adam tab in the menu. Here's the page: https://www.conniemaeinglis.ca/rewriting-adam
You can listen on both Spotify or YouTube music.
One of the songs in my playlist is "Constellations" by Ellie Holcomb. I included it because nature, and this created world as we know it, also speaks into Ethan's life. In this song, Holcomb looks up into the night sky and sees God's hand speaking to her (Psalm 19:1):
"They tell me that I'm not alone
I know that I'm never alone
'Cause you find me and bring me back home."
That's what Ethan SO desires: to not be alone. To find "home."
But will his desires be fulfilled? Will he find home?
If you go to my playlist page (see above), you'll also see a link you can click to pre-order my novel. I'd love you to read it. And when you're done, I'd love you to post a review on Goodreads or Amazon (once the book is available on Amazon).
And thanks for being here, reader. As always, I appreciate you!
