Jennifer DeLucy is a highly creative, wonderfully genuine person whom I had the pleasure of working with when I was assigned as Developmental Editor on her debut novel, Seers of Light. Seers of Light is the first book in The Light Series, a paranormal journey of self-discovery, adventure, and romance.
Jennifer was inspired to tell this story after a personal exploration of various paths of philosophy and spirituality, including near death experiences. All of these things come together in Seers of Light in a remarkably accessible, engaging, can't-put-it-down way. Not only is Jennifer a gifted writer, she is also a talented musician and actually wrote the song for the Seers of Light trailer:
I recently asked Jennifer about some of my favorite aspects of Seers of Light, and she was kind enough to answer. Thanks Jen! The mini-interview is below:
1. In addition to being an enthralling story, Seers of Light has several themes woven throughout. Which is the single most important message or theme that you hope readers retain after reading Seers of Light?
The single most important theme of Seers is hope. It's so important, SO important for people to believe in happiness, in the power of courage and love and the life-altering changes that occur when you combine them. Everyone deserves to be supremely happy in this life, and I believe it's possible, but you have to be brave and never give up, even through the hard times.
2. One of the greatest things about Seers of Light for me was the cast of entertaining and unique characters. Which one of the supporting characters did you have the most fun writing?
3. Your descriptions of paranormal entities were quite chilling at times, and so vivid that I sometimes felt like I was watching the scene instead of reading it. Are you a fan of scary movies? If so, which ones do you think most influenced you in writing the creepier scenes in Seers of Light.
4. What do you see as perks of going with a small, independent publisher like Omnific Publishing versus either a big, traditional publisher or self publishing?
5. Besides the song that you wrote (show off) for your book trailer, if you had to choose one other song that captures the essence of Seers of Light, what would it be?
Seers if Light is available in paperback, e-book and Kindle and can be purchased at Omnific Publishing and Amazon. The second book in the series, Whisper of Light, comes out next month! Both books are just perfect for some Halloween time reading.
