Interview with B. E. Van Loon

Why did I write this book?
Hello and thanks for previewing and downloading Revelation. I can't wait to develop a Seraphim Trilogy community as the books progress and to get to know you. That said, it's only fair then, that you get to know me. So...

Everyone has asked me... Why did I write this book and commit to a trilogy? I wish I could give you some spectacular reason -- like I had a stroke of genius (or madness) -- but that would be lying. The real reason is that I had to write. Over the last three years, I lost myself. I have been living in a place I really dislike -- working seven days a week just to survive and to chalk up years of service to have a ridiculously large student loan forgiven. I was homesick for the Midwest and miserable. I had lost my essence and creativity, and didn't recognize the woman in the mirror. So, I started writing, just to try to find myself again.

Then last summer, my family endured two horrific crises and I found myself knee deep in grief. Writing became therapy. I just buried myself into my half written manuscript to ease the pain. 82,000+ Words later, a fantasy emerged about saving the world. In reality, writing the book saved my sanity. I hope in some small way that Revelation and the next two books do the same for you. Lose yourself in the story. Escape when you feel overwhelmed or just need to close the door and shut out reality for a while. It's my gift to you. Enjoy."
