Why is my novel Spectrum a tale of heroism?
A: Without giving away too much, all of the “good” characters in the novel have unique personalities with quirks and strengths alike…he or she stays true to that even when evil itself appears, glaring its ugly amalgam of deceitful contempt. However, Caleb, Juliet, Lucinda, Mario, Michelle, Emily, Patrick, Erik, Lynn, and Thomas are all able to stand up to the inhumane force quite well by just having the attitude of “this is me, for better or for worse, and I’m not out to hurt anyone for a sick thrill. I’m only trying to figure things out in life while being me, the only person I can be. I can’t and won’t be anyone else. No matter what happens, I’ll be strong by holding this defense, and vigilant about getting rid of evil at the same time.” In this sense, they’re heroic because they deflect the malady of mind-spirit from infecting society, without denigrating themselves nor the innocent.
I want to inspire you as a reader, regardless of your gender, religious affiliation, sexual preference, or race (I left out age and mental state, because the novel includes gore and graphic language). Everyone deserves to be able to feel comfortable being a human, no matter what, complete with imperfections and positive personal expressions.
I hope that you enjoy reading it, and I apologize upfront for any grammatical errors, unrealistic details, etc. Hopefully, the story is interesting, even humorous and captivating for you at times.
When a group of children break into an abandoned mansion once owned by Charles and Elizabeth Grange, a notorious murderous couple in the early 20th century, they expose themselves to the malevolent force existing in Grange Manor. An instructional guide for individuals getting rid of evil, the story opens up opportunity for survival.
