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.
MICHAEL: Greetings! Today I have with me the author of The Deceived, E.C. Fisher.
E.C. FISHER: Thank you, Michael! I am glad to be here.
MICHAEL: Today I will be asking E.C. Fisher a few questions about his newest release. First question: I believe this is on everyone’s mind, what in Father’s name were you thinking?
E.C. FISHER: Now that is a good question, Michael. I wrote this novel around the idea that the Bible was fake. To support that conclusion, I decided that Lucifer, your brother, would have to win his war against God. The rest of the story unfolded from that premise.
MICHAEL: So you’re the reason I had to go through all that trouble. I banished my brother and I nearly lost the person I care for most—almost more than Father. What are your thoughts on that?
*Michael stares piercingly at the author. Fisher meets his gaze and shrugs.
E.C. FISHER: It made for an interesting story. I am not ashamed to admit it. My thoughts at the time were focused on what is happening now, in my reality, and my story is based around those themes. To be more precise, the ongoing war, terror, and hate that surrounds us daily. Even if these problems aren’t directly, visibly, impacting us, it doesn’t change the fact that they are happening.
I wanted a way to express my own feelings about the current state of our world, so I created your world—one that placed the blame on the shoulders of humans instead of your God. The losses you and everyone else suffered through in the book were necessary for the plot of the story to move forward.
MICHAEL: In your fantasy world Father has died. How did His disappearance affect the shape of the world?
E.C. FISHER: God’s “disappearance” didn’t affect the fantasy world at all. This was a real-world point I wanted to emphasize via the fictional account in my novel—no matter who wrote the Bible, the shape the world takes isn’t based on an author, but on the actions of the people who read and are affected by the words.
MICHAEL: So you sound like a person who doesn’t believe in Father?
E.C. FISHER: I don’t practice religion or faith. This is not to say I haven’t read the Bible before, or been to Church. Religion wasn’t something I needed in my life to find fulfilment. That doesn’t mean those who do are wrong. Everyone’s entitled to their beliefs, but when you’re stuffing your fist down someone’s throat, that is when it becomes a problem. Discuss religion, don’t force feed it.
MICHAEL: Do you feel that you were the person to write this story?
E.C. FISHER: Not necessarily. It didn’t have to be me, but someone had to write it. This novel concept was burning inside me. The ideas and notions I thought of grew each passing day. Yes, I could have given this idea to someone else to write, but at the time I felt I was the person to write The Deceived.
MICHAEL: Final question: What do you have to say to those who are on the fence about buying your book?
E.C. FISHER: For those on the fence, believers or non-believers, this is a work of pure fiction, based in the mind of a creative person. If you are afraid of turning against God because you purchased this book, ask for forgiveness, but at least wait until you’ve read it before jumping to conclusions. If you are afraid of becoming a believer after reading this, well, you just give me too much credit. Don’t judge a book by its cover, especially this one. In the realm of fantasy anything is possible unless you decide to bring it to reality—then it will probably crumble to dust at your feet.
MICHAEL: Well, that is all the time we have. So there you have it—E.C. Fisher with his newest release, The Deceived. Form your own opinions of the book by picking it up online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes or Kobo. Go with God.
The Deceived is now available from all major retailers, in paperback and digital formats. Purchase a copy.
The Deceived is a work of dark biblical fantasy.
What if the Bible was a con devised by Lucifer? The Deceived opens with the devil’s takeover of Heaven, and launches readers into a twisting, epic adventure as the Archangel Michael tries to win back Heaven and Earth. Set in the post-apocalyptic landscape of the Rapture, humanity falls prey to monsters, crumbling society, and the confines of a religion that’s been a lie since Adam and Eve.
“Here is a story that will hold the attention of both the believer and the atheist, a story that seems to reﬂect the mystery of every man’s dilemma — what if all that we believe in is false? This is a daring work that shouldn’t fall into the hands of the feeble minded, as entertaining and riveting as any story can be, fraught with more twists and surprises than any reader can dream of.”
