January Fake Writers’ Horoscope 2013 #mwn #fakewritershoroscopes

That character you’re coming up in your head will start appearing in real life. No else will see them except you.

They’ll start appearing in crowds, standing over your bed as you sleep, walking behind you in dark parking lots as you head to your car, in parks staring at you as if you’ve lost your mind…

You’ll be haunted day and night and their name will start appearing in other people’s conversation without you even bringing it up.

Don’t start calling the Exorcist or preacher to bless your Work in progress.

This all just means you have to write faster and finish the book and the haunting should stop… we said should…

Motown Writers Network Author Feature~ Jessica Clavell

This week’s Motown Writers Network author feature is on Jessica Clavell. Read below to find about Jessica and her new book Feelings Run Deep

Feelings Run DeepFeelings Run  Deep chronicles the true paranormal experiences of a young girl, which  started early in her toddler years, then resumed in her teens.  In between those terrifying paranormal  encounters she experienced horrendous physical and sexual child abuse by the man  whom her family always led her to believe was her father.  Even though her mother knew how deeply  he hated her daughter it wasn’t until her mother was dying that she revealed to  her that he was not her father, which made the protagonist furious at her  dying mother.

       When the ghosts started attacking her again as a teenager, the terror and  turmoil of being severely beaten by ghosts almost every night, along with  constantly trying to prevent her uncle from raping her, created so much fear and  sleep deprivation within her that it led her to have a breakdown one stormy  night. 

 

       This book depicts several true life experiences that the author experienced  which lies outside of the natural realm, but she certainly experienced it  and at times it was also witnessed by other family members, such as the things  brought about by those filled with hatred and revenge.  As incredulous as some of the incidents  in this book may seem, the author is willing to receive medically administered  Sodium Pentothal to attest to the veracity of the contents of this book.

The book is available at:  http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00A3HC4V8

Q & A with Jessica

Where are  you from?    

I  was born in Jackson, Georgia, but has spent the majority of my life in  Detroit.

When and  why did you begin writing? 

I began writing over ten years ago.   The recession caused me to abandon  this endeavor for over five years because all my stuff was in storage.  Once the Lord pulled me through those  hardships and brought restoration of the essential things that I needed to  be me, I felt compelled me to finish what I started, and in pursuit of that I  saw that He had gone before me and opened up doors for this book to be brought  to completion and publication.

When did  you first consider yourself a writer?

I  was so caught up in working and getting this book out to readers, because it has  some very emotional and precautionary content in it, and to get my children and  any listener to know that there is a powerful spiritual world that exist  within this physical and material world, that I didn’t think of myself as being  a writer until I had Amazon to ship my friend a copy of the book and she called  me to say, “Girl, you’re an author!”   Since then she had bought a few more books for her friends and as  Christmas gifts.  Now that’s a  friend!  She’s a beautiful rare  jewel, and I know her husband feels the same.

What  inspired you to write your first book? 

My life experience for the first third of  my life.  I felt like it’s a precautionary tell that can help  others.

Do you have  a specific writing style?  

The writing style used  for this book is descriptive, because I  just had a story to tell.

How did you  come up with the title?  

This life experience has taught me about the  impact of feelings, and how everyone is led by them, some with a will to do good  and others are led by either feelings of hatred or  selfishness.

Is there a  message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

I feel like it’s a warning sign of abuse or  potential abuse,  for parents who love their children to  protect them from such indelible pain, and for readers who are head of  households to see that little negative emotions within those in a family  should immediately be addressed and hopefully eradicated in order to prevent the  growth of family rivalry.  And I  want them to grasp an awareness of the powerful spiritual realm; and hopefully  that will be an incentive for the readers to pursue a knowledge of the spiritual  laws that affect our  lives.

How much of  the book is realistic?

All of  it.

Are  experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? 

Yes.  It’s my personal  memoir.

What books  have most influenced your life most?  

The Bible and books about  Edgar Cayce that were written prior to his passing, and The Master Key by  Charles F. Haanel.

If you  had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? 

I would consider Charles Haanel and all the  writers who wrote about the information that The Creator dispensed to us through  Edgar Cayce, along with all the writers of the bible, so I can’t make a  distinction between them.

What book  are you reading now?   

The Master Key, by Charles  Haanel.

Are there  any new authors that have grasped your interest?   

Yes.   The Virtuous Man by Kevin Toney and The 5 Love Languages by Gary  Chapman.

What are  your current projects?

I’ve had some beautiful songs  published, so after promoting this book, with the help of the Lord, I’m going to  gather some gifted singers together to record a gospel  cd.

Name one  entity that you feel supported you outside of family members. 

My friend, Johnnie  Mae.

Do you see  writing as a career?

I would like to write one other book, and  that’s enough for me.  It requires  too much sitting down, especially when having a sedentary job, and that’s not  healthy.

If you had  to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?  

No.

Do you  recall how your interest in writing originated?  

I was compelled to  provide awareness to others about my experiences with the powerful spirit realm  and the indelible pains of child abuse.

Can you  share a little of your current work with us?

Yes.   You can go to Amazon.com and read the first chapter free, and there’s a  Look Inside the Book feature that allows you to view other pages of the  book.

Is there  anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

No.

Who is your  favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

I like Charles Haanel because he described  the power of the mind and the spiritual laws that govern our lives and how we  are to operate within those laws to obtain our desires.  I like Kevin Toney’s book about being a  virtuous man because he mentioned some fundamental lessons that need to be  taught to young men to instill in them sexual morality and fidelity.  I haven’t read the entire book yet, but  one excerpt that I was glad he mentioned was that when he was a teenager the  subject of sex and how to treat girls was never mentioned in church.  That was my frustration when my son was a  teenager.  Prior to Internet  fultering, when one of us would be on the Internet all kinds of pornography  popped up begging you to come look at them, and they be into of all kinds of  ungodly practices.  Then when we  would go to church there was never a word spoken about the misleading immorality  that are confusing young boys on a daily basis.  And like I said, I like books that were  written about Edgar Cayce’s revelations to us on God, His laws, Jesus, and the  metaphysical aspects of existence.

Do you have  to travel much concerning your book(s)?

Not yet.

Who  designed the covers?

A Canadian cover designer, Rita Loews and  Stephannie Beman.

What was  the hardest part of writing your book? 

Correcting typos.  My thoughts often exceeded my typing  speed, and I created quite a bit of them while trying to work through fatigue  and sleepiness.

Did you  learn anything from writing your book and what was it? 

How people live their lives according to  their feelings, regardless of how someone else feels, and some people derive  pleasure from hurting other people.

Do you have  any advice for other writers?

No.

Do you have  anything specific that you want to say to your readers?     

I hope you enjoy  the book, and are able to see my objective.
