Yes, of course I’m taking advantage of today’s A-to-Z Challenge’s letter to talk about my so-far-latest book, EEL’S REVERENCE. Wanna make something of it? –Er, I mean, I do hope you don’t mind too very much.
As my tagline says: The Eel is a place. The reverence is … complicated. EEL’S REVERENCE is a fantasy, I suppose. There’s no magic in it, except the magic of the influence of strong personalities on other people. The central conflict is between the worldviews of two strong women, both priests of Micah. Micah was a man who practiced humility, poverty, acceptance of all people, the concept of The All, and non-violence. Aunt Libby, in her 80s, also practices these. Aunt Isabella, middle-aged, is a “reaver priest”, who gives lip service to Micah but practices the opposites. One of Isabella’s cronies, Uncle Phineas, has his own Facebook page, because it amuses me.
WRITING PROMPT: Does your main character’s worldview include religion? Why or why not?
