Interview with Kevin Dellinger

What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book, Requiem of Jariel was compiled through a theory of genetics. I have always had an interest in the creation of Humanity from a scientific point of view. So I created a history of Atlantis. I imagined that maybe there was something more to the erased history of Humans. So I created that something more into a science-fiction book about Angels. In the story, Angels visited Earth to help the creation and evolution of our species. It has somewhat a plot of the fall of Atlantis linked to the fall of our DNA. It ties the explanation about why we are only using a fraction of our DNA. The story tells of the arrival of the Annunaki. The Annu manipulation of our species brought about a war between Angels and the Advanced Alien race. All of the fiction was compiled through personal research of unusual theories about Angels, the Annunaki, and Atlantis.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My motivation comes from an unknown desire to express complex spiritual messages. The source is unknown. However, this aspect of my personality had to be expressed as an outlet.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I have only written one book thus far. However, Smashwords does provide potential for my future success.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is to release productive energy. If I can bring joy to others from that energy, then it makes me feel that I have a positive purpose in this world.
What do your fans mean to you?
If I have any fans, there meaning is very valuable. I hope they read with an open mind. The red pill may be hard to swallow. There is always wisdom to share. Fans can share that wisdom.
What are you working on next?
Right now, I am working on a self help book about Soul Mates. It is a guide to help people maintain long term relationships. It is a guide to decipher between the destined partner and the wrong partner. Hopefully my book about Soul Mates will be a positive influence to those looking for a Soul Mate from a spiritual perspective. The book so far is not completed. But I have an outline of the chapters.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The love for my family inspires me to get up each day. Also the love for this world inspires me to keep moving forward. Each day brings me closer to my destiny. What ever that destiny becomes will help me manifest an even greater meaning to make a difference in some way. Whether that difference is small or great, it is a ripple in the water. That water is the consciousness of this world. We all have a purpose. Although it may be unknown or known, it will help the spiritual evolution of the Human species.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time with my family. I also write music. I am also a visual artist. I also like gaming. Either way, I keep myself occupied.
How do you approach cover design?
With cover design I visualize the over all impact of the story. I have to bring the message I am portraying through the image. I use a combination of photography, artwork, and computer graphics. I look forward to doing my own original artwork in cover design for future projects.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
"Conversations with God" by Neale Donald Walsch - I found this book exciting. It brought God closer to me on a personal level. Religion can be a touchy subject for most people. But this book connected with me. It has a steady flow of information that seems to fit things together. I am a spiritual person. I like to keep an open mind on many topics. Who we are is important. I would be lost without God in my life. I enjoy all of the other books in this series as well.

"Communion" by Whitley Strieber - This book freaked me out. It is based off of a true story. However, if you get passed the little aliens walking around the house at night, it has some solid information about the alien abduction experience. I read this book when I was a teenager. It opened the door for me into the alien spaceship encounter stories that people have been telling over the years.

"Interview with the Vampire" by Ann Rice - I know this is sort of a cliche. But I enjoyed this book. It really pulls you into that vampire atmosphere. The mood is dark, mysterious, and well written. I watched the movie. There is more detail in the book.
What do you read for pleasure?
I spend most of my time reading articles on the internet. Blogs, articles, and alternative news, these are examples of what I read the most. Most of the time I read topics that relate to the unknown, new age, technology, and current news. What do I mean by the unknown? Ghosts, Spirits, Aliens, Angels, OBE, NDE, Vampires, and the Supernatural.
