All creation becomes true art when it is poured from the heart of the creator. So, for example, in my writing I create my characters with heart, which means I give them life through sharing the way I feel and projecting that into them. In that way, my readers can know me through my characters and their stories; so, in a sense, I am living through my characters, or I am building and leaving my legacy through my characters.
And, of course, my characters must create the attraction, the mystery, the reason for the reader to keep on reading. And that is done through the stress, joy, excitement, sadness, and everything else the characters feel and that is described throughout their journey. Description of their mental state, for me at least, is very important if I want to create and strengthen that attraction.
In these troubled times, his planet was in war because The Lord of Darkness and his demons had claimed their new territories there. These territories were called ‘The Dark Zones of The Light,’ because now the planet of The Illumined Ones was under darkness. But, sooner or later, he managed to locate them, and, most specifically, locate the targoblin he’d sworn to himself he’d kill.
But, just before entering the campsite where the targoblin slept, his wise master appeared from out of the shadows of the night and stopped him. “If you go ahead and kill this creature out of anger, feeding your ego for revenge, then you will lose yourself and your future reincarnations will become miserable,” he said to then young Elradon.
As he calmed down, as his anger vanished and he understood, they retired to a safe place. If that night Elradon would’ve slain the demon out of revenge, then his mind would’ve fallen into the abyss of darkness; and so, his consciousness would’ve never carried memories to his next reincarnation.
Book #3 in the epic series. Coming soon…
Hi. My name is Asael (Asa) Rodriguez. I write fiction and nonfiction. But mainly I am focusing on fantasy right now. My series BENJAMIN JONES. It is about a 12-year-old orphan boy who seeks to find out about the mysterious death of his indigenous parents, but also about himself. The stories are about self-discovery and magic. Ben grows into the wisdom that we all carry magic and great love within us. We just have to discover it for ourselves.
In the stories, he also has to fight shadow creatures, necromancers, witches, etc. His journey of magic and self-discovery take him to many worlds, beginning from our world in the 1880s-1890s. He travels to other times as well. He meets friends and gods. The series just started. I am currently writing #3. If you check my website, you can find out more about it. Thanks.

“Evolution. It’s all about evolving. Either you evolve for good, or you evolve for bad; but you evolve, and there is no escape from that. And for Ben, the human boy chosen by the gods, the next step into evolution, into a better evolution, was death. Pure and simple, death is not as dark and final as most people believe it is; and, deep in the corners of his subconscious, Benjamin Jones knew it very well…
“Thus he’d welcomed the call of the gods. But, as mentioned before, it happened that Aldorf knew; for he’d been visited by the gods, by the most pure and intense light, and by the greatest expression of love and bliss. Indeed he had been told of the wonderful things to come, and that is why he had waited for Ben on that mountain peak. Aldorf had been chosen to take part in Ben’s rebirth, and he was to do as he had been instructed…
“So, it occurred that a group of 4 strong dwarves took the body out of the house, with gentleness, with dignity, with sadness. And outside, in a coffin made out of burly tree roots, the most elegant wood and magical tree sap, Ben was carried by 2 very robust and tall orcs of good nature. And there was much weeping in the streets of the neighborhoods and in the marketplace, for everybody felt dearly for the boy whom they didn’t know…
“The boy who was now dead. The boy who was supposed to bring liberation from the rebellion and from demons. The hero half-human and half-god. This boy who had been chosen by the great gods of ancient Sumeria. And, inside the magical box, this boy was undergoing something incredible; but nobody really knew about this, because nobody really understood how blessed and special he was…”
–That was a little section of #3 in the series, which I am currently writing. This chapter is called “The Place of Zaronn.” This tells of the death of Ben in The Mountain of Lamentation, where a spiritual community took him in and is now taking the dead boy to the sacred place of the gods for his resurrection. Hope you enjoyed that. It’s getting intense.

Everything and anything creative expands your mental capacities, which means it expands your awareness in life. Life, in all aspects of it, requires creativity. If you have problems in relationships, creativity gives you the insight to understand better ways to approach the problem. If you experience challenging times financially, creativity lessens your emotional burdens and helps you see another way to motivate you and inspire you to move forward.
And whatever we are, as human beings, must be creative. Most people do not respect each other, they bully others, they live angry and frustrated, they become stubborn and set in their old ways. All things happen because the mind lacks that creative expansion, that creative awareness. I have found that in my life creativity has led me to write, inspire myself, seek to be better than I was yesterday in mind and body. I write stories to inspire myself and others. It’s a very important way to express myself, develop myself, and share myself with the world.
Having established that thought, I wanted to show you my new book’s cover. I am working on new covers for my books, fiction and nonfiction. And, while I still work on #3 in the series BENJAMIN JONES, here is the finished painting for #1 and next to it is the finished book cover design for the same. So, this is “BENJAMIN JONES – The Call of The Shaman,” #1 in the epic series.
The story is about an orphan boy who seeks to discover himself and the world. His parents have died in a very mysterious way, and now he has been ignored by his people (indigenous people) and doomed to live in an orphanage. He will meet new friends, set out on an adventure, find out his shamanic legacy, discover that he is much more than he ever thought. But this will bring consequences, because there are dark forces seeking to destroy his light. Terrible creatures following him. Many challenges to become who he is meant to be.
These series of books focus on the narrative, on the description of how he thinks and feels mostly; because this is about his journey of self-discovery. Life is about how we feel, because the experiences that we live daily are really about how we feel. So, this is BENJAMIN JONES journey to become a god, as he will uncover mysteries and how especial he is. He will discover that there is an ancient demigod living inside him. Check it out and enjoy a good read:
