Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The ancient war between Good & Evil and Light & Dark. Much of our ancestors and our lives today are still ruled by Moon phases, Incense, Latin, Sign language and Biblical Angels. Just that we are to busy to notice all this.
What are you working on next?
Almost done with the 2nd book (follow-up) on The Reaper's Design. There was just too much to put it all on a single book. I think I owe it to the readers to breathe first... And I wasn’t going to scale down on the world I created just to finish it. In a strange way the characters took on a life of their own and wrote the story themselves.

November 2022. Turning his right wrist, he noticed it was almost time to go visit the outside world again, just briefly. Nothing much would be discussed and no one would need to write about it. An unrecorded record, if you want. And because of this, society wouldn't be troubled by it.

Smashwords book reviews by Arno Le Roux

  • Carats on Jan. 21, 2016

    Loved it. No single novel / short story is for all the varied tastes out there. And as it goes we all get good or bad reviews based on someone who can feel the story or not. Well, one is definitely for me. Thank you for sharing. From a police and investigative background myself I could think of at least four of my old colleagues when reading your work. Well done. Wishing you luck in your writing. Warm regards from Johannesburg, South Africa!
