Punishment and Cosmic Law

“The Loose Damned” is a story of the meaning of life, death, and the unknown.

On this Monday 8/16, a new episode of “The Loose Damned” coming to Kindle Vella.  Story is coming to a conclusion.

Short excerpt.  Chapter 14.

Titled:  “Punishment & Cosmic Law.”

“…Mike and Jenny were holding hands, because it was finally over and their love was stronger now after living this ordeal.  They also looked at peace, because they both could feel why the creature had come and why things were happening the way they were happening…

“The demon had been sent to bring order to the chaos the rogue and psychotic Reaper had created.  He’d broken rules and acted on his own.  Reaper had followed his own thirst for chaos and revenge.  He had broken the trust of those who had made him the Reaper in the first place…  

“The Reaper deals with death.  The Reaper is supposed to balance life, keep evolution as sacred as it is, and maintain the cosmic order in connection to Planet Earth.  A life exits this physicality, a life is born in this physicality.  The old goes out, the new comes in.  This is the way of the cosmos.  This is balance.  But this new Reaper had followed his own selfish desires instead of the established Cosmic Law…”

Driven. And a story.

“So many things are possible, just as long as you don’t know they are impossible.”

–Norton Juster

What happens when something negative, some extreme anxiety, some fear, enters the mind…?? We become just that. Just that negativity. Just that anxiety and fear. Society shows you what could go wrong, or you pay attention to the failure or suffering of another. Or perhaps you just cling to past mistakes, or to the example of others, or to whatever they say it does not work. What does it do in your mind…?? It closes you to the possibility of creating and discovering something new. And life is all about exploration, new chapters to begin, another point of view, other visions and goals to pursue and make happen for yourself.

If you are not moving forward and creating new things, new experiences, new and better feelings in you, then life loses spark, meaning, purpose, joy. What I’m trying to say here is that we must never remain and cling to negativity, to fears, to drama. Let us say that we have a vision of a future, we are working towards something of value for ourselves, we have a purpose for creating something great in our lives; however, there is drama, difficulty, challenges, people who tell us that is never happening for us. In this case, we must not become overwhelmed by all the negativity. Even if the negativity sounds rational, one must always keep going, with faith, with a positive thought and vision. Because this process creates self-confidence.

And the truth is that what helps us grow in life, better our relationships, improve our finances, develop further our personas, is exactly self-confidence. Things evolve. Things become what you are. If you carry fear, drama, and attachment to negativity, then you are just that; and so, whatever thing you want out of life will become just that for you. But if you carry faith, self-belief, positivity and vision, then you are just that; and so, life will become just that for you. It is all about the content of your mind. The content of your mind creates the feelings that drive you. If you want success, love, happiness. If you want to better yourself, your finances, your relationships, your life in all aspect, then you need the best and most positive feelings to drive you.


And now I would like to introduce you to a new story I’m writing.

“The Loose Damned” is a short story, coming soon on Kindle Vella, an Amazon service, which can be read by buying tokens. You can buy 1 episode at a time, or many at a time. The first 3 episodes are free to read to introduce the reader to the story.

And my story is the epic account of what happened to Michael Vega, a young man who comes back from the beyond. He might come back for love. He might come back for revenge. He might come back to right a wrong. Or he might come back to the world of the living just because he rebels against any authority. Who knows??

You’ll just have to read it to find out.

But one thing is for sure: ‘NOT EVEN HELL CAN STOP HIM.’

The Return of The Gods

What if I’ve been sent to hell?? No, I can beat this! But my soul is lost. Why should I bother?? I have failed my father, my friends, myself. I am destined to lose and die. No, I have to press on and get outta here! Yes, he felt in a downward spiral. He felt he’d lost identity and meaning.

In this languishing state, he managed to walk and near the lip of the highland. The cold air mixed with the terrible downpour was quickly freezing his very bones. “Blazes!” he said as the abyss rumbled beneath him. He became disturbed instantly.

He saw that he was on a very high peak, and that this was part of the heavens. Or part of hell. Then he peered down through the fogginess of the intermingling clouds, but he saw nothing and heard only the muffled sounds of the ill-fated creatures of the lands below.

Perhaps sounds of agony. Perhaps sounds of mockery. Who knew. And when he turned around, through the heavy rain, he saw a hooded figure. This one had been watching him all along…

BARNABY BROWN and The Baetylus Stones

“Barnaby senses a change in the world. He knows there is a
fight coming and he wants to be fully prepared. Today, his
mind is full of Darius Dent, which is why he is slouched in
front of the T.V.”

This is a review for “BARNABY BROWN and The Baetylus Stones.” Book 2 in the series.

Check out my review of the first book in the series. Barnaby Brown and The Time Machine.

This is a sci-fi, fantasy adventure of great measure. It is about time travel and about Good vs. Evil. It starts with action as soon as you start reading it, and you get the feeling that it’ll get more intense as you keep on reading. It is also about friendship and the growth of that friendship. Because, as I mentioned on my review of the first book, we have a normal teen and his high school friends here, a loving, single mother and a an uncle who builds a time machine. It all starts very normal and innocent.

BARNABY BROWN and The Baetylus Stones begins with terrible news for the main characters. Darius Dent is released from prison. If you haven’t read the first book yet, Darius Dent is the greedy antagonist, wealthy businessman, arms dealer, and now enemy of humankind. This begins a chains of events for young Barnaby and his friends. Darius seeks power, he wants to rule the world; and now, with the evil guidance of Lord Kallick, he aims to find The Baetylus Stones to become extremely powerful, unstoppable.

As you can imagine, the adventure can only get more intense from there. This story got me hooked from the start. I find it to be a fast-paced adventure full of twists and turns. You have also teen romance, as you witness Barnaby and Polly becoming a couple and sharing deep feelings towards each other. The imagination of the author is extremely refreshing and it gives me the feeling of freedom, and that is what great fantasy should give you, a great freedom to dream of the impossible, maybe to take a break from your life and recharge.

I give it a great 4 stars.

I would like to end this review by recommending this book. If you have gotten this far in the article, it means that you are interested. So, I ask you to find out more about the book and get your copy. Also please check out my books below.

The Call of The Shaman. Preorder special.

Today feels like any other day, except they reminded me is October 31st, my 40th birthday. I truly never celebrate my birthday as something special. Maybe a nice meal with family. Always receive a call or two from loved ones. And then there’s the pouring of ‘Happy Birthdays’ from Facebook friends and followers to my notifications and to my private inbox. Really feel the love, but for me it is just another day. I am not into all these, except holidays like Christmas, Easter, and maybe Thanksgiving with family. When you are content and grateful every day like me, you don’t really feel a necessity to celebrate society’s inventions. I only love the ones I get to enjoy having a nice moment with family.

I am not into parties or celebrating with a bunch of people, as I mentioned. I don’t drink alcohol. I really watch what I eat, which means I wouldn’t treat my body like most do in a celebration. But one thing is special about this day. Definitely! Today I’ve launched my preorder special. Preorder on my young adult novel titled “BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman.” Now, you have to understand that this is not considered just a job, or something I do. Writing is my passion! Creating is what I am all about! I have practiced, literally, every day in front of a computer for 20 years. I have given up many things to sit down and perfect my craft daily without excuse.

I am proud of it, and I am not shy about it. So, please click below, and go find out what it is all about. This story fuses ancient aliens, ancient wisdom, and lots of action and adventure taking place somewhere in U.S in the 1890s.

BENJAMIN JONES. More fiction characters.

So, in a past post or blog I shared a chapter called “Chat with a Necromancer,” which is a crucial one in my upcoming young adult, fantasy and mystery novel “BENJAMIN JONES – The Call of The Shaman.” And I also wrote a blog about the three main characters in the same series, titled “BENJAMIN JONES. Fiction characters.

Well, this blog post is about the rest of the characters of this magical story. Three more characters which are also very important and bring a touch of laughter, innocence, magic, cruelty, craziness and mystery to the story. This is a story which is emotional as it is mystical, because the aim here is not just to entertain but to expand the mind and learn about life and the journey we all have to take. This story is unique, but if I have to name the novels which inspired me to write it I would say: 1- Harry Potter. 2- The Alchemist. 3- The Chronicles of Narnia.

Shadow: Ben enters a magic swamp, and his own shadow comes to life because of it. Shadow has been trapped as an immobile and dull shadow for too long (12 years), so now he has become animate. He talks fast, manic, and he is very loyal to Ben. Also he can be a little irritating. But he brings a little magic and laughter wherever he goes. He will be a great ally and companion, full of secrets and magic, in Ben’s quest.

Gemlik: Ben meets Gemlik as he begins to discover his own magic and his curse. Gemlik is a ghoul, but he is different than the other ghouls. That is because Gemlik is a cursed god. He was one of the gods who came down from the heavens in mankind’s beginnings. And so, Gemlik has many powers and contacts in the necro world. He also desires to communicate with his family, who have gone to Heaven. Gemlik joins Ben’s quest as his friend. He is a naughty, yet loyal and comical ghoul.

Lord Furvusmortem: This is Ben’s nemesis. The Voldemort to Harry Potter. Lord Furvusmortem is ‘The Necromancer of The Four Winds.’ He was also there at the beginning of humanity. He was a learned of The Dark Magic Arts. He was cursed by his own hand. And now he has become a powerful necromancer who seeks to destroy Ben (Wolf boy). Why does he want to destroy him..?? You will have to find out for yourself when the novel comes out (very, very soon!). Just know that Lord Furvusmortem is an enigma, shrouded in mystery, and that he has unimaginable powers since he is The Lord of The Necro Dimension.

To conclude, this young adult, fantasy, mystery novel is full of adventure and profound questions. It will keep you wondering and following the action of the same. But, since I am also a nonfiction, spiritual, self-help author I have also written this story to inspire and bring some real insight in your own life; because my goal is to bring some light into your own struggle. I think all literature must leave a great message and guide you into some self-discovery of your own.

Chat with a Necromancer.

Titled: “BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman.” Here’s a sample of the story. I would really appreciate your opinions, thoughts, comments on it. As an artist, I learn much from this. For me, my craft is all about learning and becoming better and better, as in all other aspects in my life. Thanks!

So, Ben has begun his quest with two great friends. He has traveled much and discovered a world of magic and danger. He has discovered that he is a shaman and cursed. He is now for the first time meeting his greatest foe, Lord Furvusmortem.

CHAPTER SEVENTEEN – CHAT WITH A NECROMANCER.

The shape materialized out of the darkness, and it seemed like it had been part of such death of light all along. Soon, Ben became aware of the man who was walking towards him. Yes, there was no doubt. The man carried dark magic. He was himself powerful dark magic.

And he was the one Benjamin Jones had sensed so clearly since the train. Maybe he was connected somehow to this man. Perhaps the curse had something to do with it. Nothing was fantasy here. The phenomena he felt in his bones was indescribable, and yet so precise and real.

Once the man stood a few feet in front of him, under the bright light, Ben saw the face of the man who had been in that bar, or vision, or whatever it had really been. He was holding his fedora in one hand and the cigar in another. The swirly clouds of toxic smoke stung Ben’s throat. He drew back and coughed heavily.

The man saw this and snickered, then muttered disdainfully, “You’re weak.” After he sat on a stool by the bar, he looked at Ben, who was still affected by the smoke and coughing heavily. He put away his cigar. “Alright! Jesus. You can stop now. What do you want, boy??”

When the man picked up the mystical object from the counter, he seemed confused about it. He was attracted by its energy, like two opposite polarities. Suddenly, the man groaned and dropped the hare on the ground. It had burned him. But, even though the hare had been dropped, it did not break.

Ben stopped coughing. He was now glaring at the mysterious man. He was really feeling his rage. His hands were shaking. The man gave out some kind of ill scent and repulsive force. It rattled something inside Ben, and being a few feet away from this man was provoking him.

He was suddenly taken by his rage, and he couldn’t help but draw out his emotions in waves. There was a glint of furious light. And then his body was covered by pulses of magic which followed his rage. But, before Ben did anything, the man saw the tremendous energy about to burst off him.

Ben clearly had lost control, because the burst of energy would grow in a circle and destroy the place. The man quickly stepped aside and mumbled something only the spirits from the other side heard. Then there was a powerful swirl of winds around Ben.

This held the burst of energy in order to stop its growth. The man finally gave a hand clap and Ben was thrown backwards against a couple of chairs.

Then, unconcerned, the man went around the bar counter and served himself some Whiskey. “Take your time to calm down, boy,” he said with a warning in his voice.

As Ben got up, his hands started shaking again, his eyes consumed by fury, and he was preparing for a new attack. At this, the man rolled his eyes, placed his drink on the counter and said, “Oh, the stupidity of youth! I don’t wanna have to kill you, or your friends.”

Ben saw that he was moving his hands and creating two circles of fire. Somehow he also witnessed him in his mind’s eye murdering his friends, so he calmed down in order to find out who he was and how he could be stopped. He had to be stopped.

The man had now spirits of the dead about him. The hollows of their eyes where white and dead. Their bodies just long and obscure clouds of smoke. Head horns appeared to be just more of the toxic gas making their bodies.

This wraith activity would’ve frightened anybody, but Ben himself had crossed the paranormal already. And he already knew that nothing was what it seemed.

Ben had seen a ghoul like one of these on the train just before the derailment had occurred. And he had definitely felt them stalking his dreams as well. Night after night. Day after day. He had been always stalked by these dark forces within himself, and he always had fought to balance them.

And ghouls, these dark forces live right next to light forces within ourselves, do they not…?? This is our own personal struggle. And just like Ben, we must balance these forces before the darkness overtake us. The darkness exists in the world as our own inner projections. We all have them. So perhaps Ben is not the only one cursed here.

In balancing himself, Ben stepped back and the mysterious man stopped himself. The damned vanished as soon as the man whispered his command in the old language. This man seemed possessed when he did so, and Ben was beginning to understand who he might be. But he needed to be sure.

Ben studied his features really closely. He was dressed like a gentleman of high class. He looked confident, powerful, and with a certain poise. But there was cruelty and arrogance on his face. And he appeared to lead the ghouls, just like Ben did with the wolves.

Then, without more hesitation, Ben quizzed, “Are you The Necromancer of The Four Winds…??”

The man stopped drinking suddenly, pondered the question as if remembering, then replied, “Well, yes. But that sounds too cruel, Ben. And long. And pretentious. So, just call me Lord Furvusmortem. A king gave me that honor.”

Ben thought of that name. Furvusmortem. Were did I hear that…??, he repeated in his mind. He didn’t remember. But that name sure brought chills to his marrow.

“Doesn’t Furvusmortem mean Obscure Death??” Ben asked him while recalling his Latin studies’ class. A class he hated, by the way.

He thought about this, then said, “Well, yes. But it only sounds cruel and dreadful when you translate it into English,” he added amusingly serious. “Don’t judge me, boy. Unless you wanna end up like one of my monstra parvum.”

“You mean the ghouls I just saw…??” Ben had asked a question without really needing an answer. He knew what they were. He felt the morbid connection to the dead creatures already. “Why were they on the train…?? And why did they cause the accident??”

Lord Furvusmortem suddenly sent a chair rushing at Ben with just a single swipe of his hand! Ben’s knees were bent and he plumped down without even knowing. This man was surely more than what he seemed.

Then the man continued, “They were following you. You stink, boy! You know, because of the curse and all. And they caused the train’s derailment because they are just terrible imps without a soul. What did you think?!”

Ben was now filled with questions. About the curse. About this Furvusmortem guy. About the ghouls. About everything! He rushed, “Who are you?? Why are you here?? What do you want with me??” As he said this, he tried to get up from the chair but couldn’t. It was as if he were glued to it. “What is this?! Why can’t I get up?!” he groaned angrily.

Lord Furvusmortem held his cigar and looked at Ben with sickening mockery. “Look at you, boy. Jeez. You don’t even know who you are. Less who I am.” He stood up, finished his drink, and walked to him. “You know what, I will tell you the story. So, pay attention, or you’ll never know why you are destined to die by my hands.”

Once he moved another chair with the swipe of his hand and sat next to Ben, he continued, “This story goes beyond the legend of the wolf boy, which you have undoubtedly heard I’m sure. This story begins with The Sitchin Gods. They who came down from the heavens. They who were the origin of light and dark, of good and evil.” He stopped and continued smoking his cigar.

Ben’s face had become stiff, emotionless, not because he was afraid but because he was shocked by what Furvusmortem had said. ‘You are destined to die by my hands.’

What did he mean…?? Why did he want to kill him?? But still, Ben remained put. Not that he could move or go anywhere. He just listened and held back his anger. He needed to know more.

And so, well behind clouds of black smoke, Lord Furvusmortem’s stare seemed to pierce the boy’s soul. Then he said, “The gods settled in the lands of The Sumerians. And these ones prospered because of it. They built incredible cities, technologies, temples. They grew spiritually, scientifically, economically. The Sumerians became highly intelligent, so one of them started a rebellion. He was called Mancer, because he had learned the sacred magic of the spirits and the stars…

“He was a visionary and wanted to free the people from these so-called gods, because he knew that tyranny was coming. Some didn’t believe him. Too many had fallen under the Sitchin’s control. Until one night of rebellion he was captured, tortured, and cursed to a never-ending state of death. A necro state. Damned to walk the earth deathless, and lifeless, for eternity. Do you know how that feels, boy?? To be not here, and not there either. A sort of a saeva limbus. An oblivion.”

As he started to amble away from the light, Ben tried to wriggle himself free. But he did it carefully in order to not pull the chair and bring noise. He used his magic. He focused, cleared his mind and felt his energy cancel out the chair’s grip. But as he stood up, Lord Furvusmortem had already disappeared in the obscurity of the place.

All of a sudden, a furious growl echoed in the dining hall! The beast emerged from the shadows of the place. This creature seemed possessed. The beast was a rabid dog with teeth as sharp as knives, and of the size of a lion. Certainly the beast had been summoned from the same pits of hell.

He moved with demonic speed towards Ben. There had been no time to react, or even think. Almost instantly then, the beast had him pinned against the ground. Ben fought him, but it was useless. The eyes of the creature seemed cold and cruel, just like his master’s. But the dog soon felt the aura of the wolf boy. He was the leader of the pack after all. The dog knew that.

Benjamin Jones whispered to the rabid dog, then with a soft and tamed demeanor the large beast licked his face. The slobber was friendly but disgusting at first, but soon Ben was rubbing the tummy of his new friend who was just as docile as a baby rabbit. The dog’s tail went side to side joyfully.

Ben felt proud of himself. And there was a powerful awe in him as well. He had just transformed a most ferocious beast into a cuddly puppy. And, the best of all, he also felt the strong connection to the dog. He then recalled that dogs and wolves belonged to the same family. Obviously, Ben did so as well.

Now, from beyond the darkness the applause sounded with poise. “Magnificent. You are indeed the wolf boy. The reincarnation of the legend. Cursed by the same man who became The Necromancer of the Four Winds after he was also cursed.” As Lord Furvusmortem said this, his shape strutted out of the curtain of blackness.

Ben was now paying attention to the arrogant Lord of The Dead. “So, you were the man in the story…?? You are the mancer?? Cursed to walk with the dead. But what do you want from me?! I did not curse you,” Ben said.

He did not look amused anymore. His eyes turned colder, crueler. He suddenly stopped, looked at him sharply, then directed Ben’s view to a big mirror hanged upon the wall behind the counter. The surface looked now silvery and unstable, because it was moving, flowing like the waters of a river.

It quickly became obvious that the mirror was turning into some kind of portal or window, because lost in the silvery substance you could see demons almost drowning in it. Trapped maybe. Was this a vision of hell…?? Ben took a few steps back. The dog was now somewhere whimpering.

The lamenting and tormenting were being half muffled by the incessant sounds of the ardent flames devouring them like crispy wood. Why was the necromancer showing this to Ben…?? What was the point of all this??

There was another dimension there. Perhaps the underworld. He felt the connection. And, right then and there, Ben understood what he was destined to face. Did he even have a choice, or had it been made for him already??

Ben’s face was cringing, not out of fear but out of torture. He was somehow feeling what the poor souls felt. He was sensitive to their hellish plight. He wondered why they were there. He wondered if they’d be stuck there for eternity. Then a tear rolled down his face. But he knew he couldn’t do anything to help them.

While Ben was taken by this, the voice of Lord Furvusmortem came to him, “We are fated to each other. We are cursed. Good and evil, Benjamin.” As he said this, the portal to hell closed, the mirror shattered, and winds arose from the four points in the room.

This lasted for a few more seconds, then Lord Furvusmortem vanished in the shadows of the dining hall. His fedora, which had fallen on the floor, shook and quickly vanished. Then it all turned black, and the winds died down.

BENJAMIN JONES. The Call of The Shaman.

This post is about my upcoming young adult/mystery/fantasy novel. I am currently writing the last few chapters. This will be a story like no other. My first fiction novel. You’ll have entertainment, adventure, and you’ll learn as the protagonist discovers himself throughout his journey. Ben is an orphan, and he doesn’t think he can go on this quest and defeat dark forces; but he learns about the strong human spirit, and he does this with good friends by his side.

A LITTLE COMMENT ON THE STORY:

Since his parents’ believed death, he has become an orphan, shunned by his own people (American indigenous people, The Pawnee”), and sent to an orphanage run strictly under the watchful eye of Miss Danksmill.

Ben has visions and dreams in which his father appears to him. His father then, he will give him purpose, motivation to believe in himself. Ben will have to recover a sacred, shamanic object which possesses the greatest wisdom of all shamans past, and which also opens a portal or bridge into the spiritual dimension.

This quest will not be journeyed alone, because he will count with the support of friends, very unique friends. Among these friends, a naughty but decent, ancient god and now ghoul, and also his shadow. Literally his shadow!


This story is unique. But if I had to name the books that inspired me to write it, or even compare it, then, I would mention “Harry Potter” – “The Alchemist” “The Chronicles of Narnia.” My book brings an essence from these 3. But I also add a little spiritual vision or wisdom into it by a character named Adit. Adit will be Ben’s spiritual guru and friend, and his main support to find himself and his magic.

So, follow me to find out when it’s released. Join the adventure!
