I have sent a new manuscript to my editor. The title is: Re:Camelot Part One: The Descendant of the King. A cover reveal is in the works so look forward to that. I will also be working on collecting book teasers for this novel and a book trailer as well. Check back later for updates.
I have decided to change my book cover. The dark cover with the throne is hand-drawn by an illustrator. He did a wondering job bring my concept into reality. However, this new book cover is just fantastic.
While I truly love the first cover I have received mixed reviews about it. Now that said, this new cover is beyond words. I am happy to bring this cover to fans and I hope you love it as much as I do.
I would like to give out my thanks to Emerald Book Reviews for an outstanding review. Click on the link to be taken to their website and read the review for yourself. Below is an excerpt from the review:
A compelling and gripping read
“Whatever flaws we might identify or frustrations we might feel are trivial in comparison to a reader’s pure joy in losing himself/herself in a narrative. When all the elements come together: an intriguing plot, thoughtful, profound themes, complex, troubling, characters, and language that will amaze for its clarity, directness and confidence; we gratefully set all analysis aside and give ourselves up to the sheer magic of a great book. And for me, The Deceived, is such a book…”
Another great review by Cia Black from her blog, She Always Reads. Click on the link to be taken to her website and read the review for yourself. Below is an excerpt from the review:
“…Now that I got that out-of-the-way on to what I did like. I loved that the author chose a topic that usually isn’t one that is touched on, Lucifer winning…well it’s untold. Lucifer attempting is told all the time but Lucifer actually being in control is not. ( At least I haven’t read it anywhere.) E.C. Fisher methodically took the Bible without seriously changing the Bible and showed how it could be construed to benefit Lucifer and his half truce…”
I would like to take this moment to thank those of you who’ve brought my book. As sales haven’t been so kind to me I decided to lower the price of the ebook version of my novel to $4.99. This will be the price from now on. Unless I do a promotional sale. This price is across all book markets.
The excerpt below is from the recently released Biblical thriller The Deceived. If this sparks your interest, check out The Deceived on Amazon and Barnes & Noble in paperback and e-book formats.
“Now that I think about it, humans are quite perceptive but oddly gullible creatures. It’s a pity, really,”
“Don’t let humans fool you,” Ari-el said cryptically. “Before you know it, they’ll get the better of you. Mark my words.”
“Oh, I’ve seen the gullibility of humanity,” Lucifer said, waving his hand as if he were swatting away a pesky fly. “I mean, they believe that God, our Father, is responsible for everything that has ever happened to them: wars, famine, plague—and anything else they can think of. They place it all on Father’s shoulders and never take the blame themselves.”
His voice rose in anger as he screamed, “Who do they think they are?” Reaching back, he picked up the chair, smashing it in front of himself. “As if God has any control over their actions. Humanity was given free will and they made their choices, freely.”
Suddenly he stopped, his rage evaporating, and he took a few deep breaths to calm himself before continuing. “Be it natural or unexplained, humanity finds a way to curse God for their failures. Humanity made Hell on Earth all by themselves. But that is of no concern for me since I am the Lord that art in Heaven.”
“You made the Bible as a tool to gain power while using it to desecrate our Father,” Ari-el said in disgust.
“I knew you would see the beauty in what I’ve done,” Lucifer said excitedly, as if he hadn’t heard what she’d just said. “Humanity isn’t worthy of Father’s love nor should they be. My plan, Revelation, will reveal the truth of it all and I’ll finally have a place to belong.”
“This is all so you can belong somewhere?” Ari-el’s mouth dropped open at the thought.
“Do you have any idea what it’s been like? I’m not angel nor demon nor human. Being the outcast,” he said with a sad expression, his eyes suddenly damp, “is lonely.”
Ari-el burst into laughter. “You’re doing this because you’re lonely. Oh, I can’t wait until Michael puts an end to your plans.”
His face turned sour, as if he’d been sucking on sweet candy only to find out it was a lemon rind, tart and puckering. “You just had to mention HIM didn’t you,” he said, marching over to stand before her. “It seems that now’s the time to make you regret those words.”
“Go ahead,” she said, exposing her long, white neck, “kill me.” It was clear from the anger in her eyes and her stoic expression that she was readily prepared to die.
Lucifer stared at her for a moment before placing his index finger on her forehead gently. “Oh, it is not I who will kill you, but Michael,” he said as he plunged his finger into her head. Her bloodcurdling scream pierced
the entirety of Heaven as she howled like a wild animal in pain.

The excerpt below is from The Deceived, a recently released dark Biblical thriller.
Hundreds of the monsters crowded the streets before them like a pack of wolves, their sharp talons flexing and scraping against their tough reddish hide. The demons stood in front of them, imposing and menacing as they growled and snarled at Michael and his group, the black void of their eyes taking them in. Jude stopped the MRAP a good
distance from the demons and waited as the demons stood motionless.
“What are they waiting for?” Jude asked as she leaned her forearms on the steering wheel, drumming her fingernails against it.
“Who knows?” Michael said.
“What should we do?” Peter asked, appearing between them.
“Everyone will wait here. I’ll handle this,” Michael said as he got ready to
exit the MRAP. “There’s no reason for any of you to be put in harm’s way.”
“Wait,” Jude yelled out. “Look at that,” she said, pointing out the windshield.
Michael turned his head to see the demons all turning their backs to them, as if something were causing them to panic. Black flames and ashy dust clouds popped up every now and then amidst the demon gang, obscuring them momentarily in the thick clouds before revealing their darkened, twisted forms once again. Soon Michael was able to see two tall,
finely-dressed demons in black suits, their eyes obscured by dark glasses, wielding the obsidian daggers that Amenadiel held in Heaven. Without a word, these two demons began killing all the other demons around them, slashing at the dark apparitions without so much as breaking a sweat. Everyone watched in silence until the last demon was reduced to dust. When they were done, they concealed the blades and stood alongside each other facing the MRAPs.
“Now there are two,” Jude said, letting out a whistle.
“Doesn’t that seem a little weird? Why did they attack their own kind?” Peter asked.
“How about we find out,” Michael said before exiting the MRAP. He stepped down from his seat and walked toward the two demons standing before them.

INTERVIEWER: Thank you for joining us today. Here with me around the table I have Peter, Thomas, Matthew, and Philippa, a few of the youngest characters from The Deceived by E.C. Fisher. I will be asking them three questions about their experiences during their harrowing journey through the Rapture. Let’s get started, shall we.
MATTHEW: Ma’am, my name is Matty.
PETER: Matty, now isn’t really the time to be worrying about that. People are going to be seeing this interview.
MATTHEW: But that’s my name.
PHILIPPA: Matthew, let’s give the interviewer a chance to ask the questions before we interrupt.
PHILIPPA: Please, continue.
INTERVIEWER: Thank you. First question: How was your experience eating an MRE? That’s “Meals Ready to Eat” for our listeners who aren’t familiar.
PETER: Well the first time—
MATTHEW: Mine was spaghetti and meat sauce. It came with Skittles. I love candy.
INTERVIEWER: Candy? These MREs don’t sound so bad.
PETER: Yes, Matty, Skittles are amazing. I would like to mention that not every meal came with candy. Unfortunately, I didn’t get many packets that came with any, though Jude did. Man, that was a pack of Skittles she’ll never forget. Who knew a pack of Skittles could save a life… Oh, sorry, going off topic. Where was I? Oh yes, it was fun eating the MREs. Sitting around with everyone and talking as we waited for our meals to heat up. My first meal was the chicken with tomatoes and feta cheese. It was surprisingly good. It did make me miss the food back at the ARCS. The peanut butter packet was tasty with the bread.
PHILIPPA: I had the chili macaroni. After being held captive by demons a hot meal was delicious no matter what form it took. Thankfully it wasn’t one of those vegetarian meals.
THOMAS: Don’t remind me. First meal I get in days and it’s the veggie burger. For starters, veggies do not make good burgers. I thought the purpose of an MRE was to provide calories, not take them away. I wasn’t regular for a while after that meal.
MATTHEW: You made funny faces. (laughs and points at Thomas)
PETER AND PHILIPPA: (snorting from holding in their laughter) Don’t pick on Thomas.
INTERVIEWER: Why don’t I ask the next question? (the kids quickly regain their composure) What was it like riding inside the MRAP? Again, a little clarification, that’s a “Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected” vehicle.
THOMAS: There’s a lot more room than you’d think inside one of those things. Besides Andrew’s crazy driving I’d have to say it was a smooth ride. Though I’m just glad we found empty hotels to sleep in, because the smell inside would’ve knocked me out for good.
PETER: Not as if we could’ve just opened a window. The MRAP was fun. Wish I could’ve driven it once. And don’t be alone with Jude behind the wheel. Women drivers, am I right?
PHILIPPA: And what’s that supposed to mean?
PETER: Women drivers get you where you need to go in a hurry.
PHILIPPA: Good cover. As Thomas mentioned, the ride was pretty smooth. The vehicle provided good protection against the creatures of the Four Horsemen. If it wasn’t for the safety the vehicle provided our journey would’ve been a lot shorter.
INTERVIEWER: You mention the creatures of the Four Horsemen. Care to tell one of your scariest moments with them?
PETER: Any moment faced with those creatures is a scary moment. Thankfully we had weapons to fight against them. The first time I faced a group of them I was shaking, but the adrenaline numbed me. It wasn’t until it was over that I felt like wetting myself.
MATTHEW: Hahaha, Peter wet his pants, Peter wet his pants.
PETER: Matty, seriously, I didn’t wet my pants. Philippa, really I didn’t.
PHILIPPA: I wouldn’t blame you, Peter. Those things are scary—rows of shark teeth and dead eyes. (shudders) I think it took a lot of courage to stand and fight them. Even with Michael nearby. I was surprised when Jamey and Jacklyn decided to train and help. I wanted to as well, but…
PETER: You did what you could. (Peter touches Philippa’s hand) No one was asking for anyone to step up.
THOMAS: I also felt so useless. Even during our abduction.
INTERVIEWER: It seems we are touching some emotional areas. I think we’ll call it a day. I would like to thank, Peter, Philippa, Thomas, and Matty for joining us. Look for them in the new release The Deceived by E.C. Fisher, available online at: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes or Kobo.
