Last night I revealed some things about Seers that were quite spoiler-esque. Tonight's entry is safer to read, but it will still give you some ideas of what sort of thoughts went into the book.
I'd like to talk a little more about the philosophy behind Seers of Light. Some wonderful readers had made a comment on the Seers Forum (http://seersoflight.com/user/Discussion.aspx?id=224684) about the book being spiritual without being unbelievable. This was so very wonderful for me to read, because the whole reason I invented the Seers world was to create a love story that injected some hope into the veins of the reader, some belief in a greater purpose for their life, and a feeling that, in the end, we're all okay.
I suppose the content could be considered rather New Agey, since it is largely based in Eastern philosophical views mixed with a lot of research into near-death-experiences. But I wanted these characters and their surreal world to be accessible. I wanted you to believe in the unknown and become excited with the possibility that YOU could be Lily. You could be Anna or William or any one of them. On top of that, I wanted you to be inspired about love. I have this powerful desire for women to stop settling for men that don't treat them with the utmost respect, don't acknowledge their full worth and potential. I wanted women to find a strong model in Lily, but one that we can all relate to.
I told someone recently that, with the kind of energy this story is attracting, I know it was worth all the effort. People need an escape, they need a jump start. We need to feel invigorated to love and live fully. If that's the only message you take from the Seers books, then good. What more can I ask?
Peace, love and gratitude,
