I just had one of those big “woops” moments, realising that April is nearly half complete and I have not yet looked at my “Shady Oaks” screenplay!

Duh. With my head in the clouds, working on “Immortal Forever” I sort of totally forgot I have other stuff to do. Mind you, the time has been brilliant as I plot the mega-story-arc for my Russian Vampire Fiction.

Never-the-less, I must get along and open up Final Draft and concentrate of completing April’s agenda. Just have to do the closing act. Should be no problem.

With Svetlana, Misha and Lucy…

Wonder what I’m working on this damp day…

Enjoy and be nice to each other :)

Poetry From “Immortal Forever”

The future dark paranormal (Russian vampire fiction) “Immortal Forever”, which will probably be completed in about five years, will contain quite a bit of self-penned prose as well as some by other authors. The following is a brief poem from the draft manuscript.
 
FYI, I hope to be performing this poem in person at an upcoming poetry meet of The Dead Good Poets Society in Liverpool. There is a teeny bit I am not happy with, to do with how one line reads related to another, but I’ll dwell upon that and maybe change it. It is all in how the poem is spoken. The poem title is a working title only. Don’t forget, the book has a very morbid and dark theme…

“Regret and Anger of Being Immortal Forever”

 

Places to be yet never seen,

Amid the blue skies a bleeding red stream

Towers of life with a tower of death,

No mortal can recall when my heart has been.

 

Let me sleep for a thousand years.

So tired, to run from the burning sun,

and a long ceased breath.

With blood red tears, into the day we have never seen.

 

Of places we imagine, yet only unseen,

A torture unlike the deep night we’ve carefully done

Still waters of blood and the stench of death,

Where you once smiled – this never-ending dream.

 

No friend nor kin we have ever been,

As moths to the light, the dead come to that bleeding red stream.

Those hills and those mounds, we have our death,

Revenge shall be ours, a heart no longer beating.

“Immortal Forever” With Svetlana Vladimirovna Kollontai

Posted in Immortal Forever, Update with tags , , , , , on January 23, 2015 by Kaden Brown

Places to be yet never seen,
Amid the blue skies a bleeding red stream.
Towers of life with a tower of death,
No mortal can recall where my heart has been.

В15525

Thirty seven kilometres north west of the Kremlin lies the city of Zelenograd, established after the Great Patriotic War, a formerly closed Soviet city and now home to modern Russia’s high technology and research industries. It is also the home of Lana (Svetlana) Vladimirovna Kollontai wife of Mikhail and mother of Valentina, who died in the mid-1950’s in mysterious and bloody circumstances.

Somewhere the truth about what happened to Lana’s family is waiting to be told.

Somewhere, maybe even here amidst the ruins and memorials to Soviet dead, or maybe in the bars and cafes of Moscow the truth is waiting to be told.

Or maybe, in some other distant locale, maybe across the mountains and the wild seas, someone knows the secret that can resolve her horror, her calamity, the truth is waiting to be told.

Zelenograd_-_Shtyki_Memorial

The base of the Shtyki Memorial includes the inscription: “Here the defenders of Moscow, fallen in battle for the Motherland, remain forever immortal.”

Only a strong heart and determined mind can uncover a truth that none will surrender, for the price of knowledge is immortal forever.

Lana knows that the truth is waiting to be told, or so she thinks.

Sadie’s Making Me Nervous

Posted in Sadie Mae Glutz, Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 10, 2015 by Kaden Brown

81exuOGJ9EL__SL1500_

With two previously published books, both in the paranormal or ‘urban fiction’ genre, you may expect me to have become accustomed to feeling nervous or anxious prior to launch.

Oddly, I previously never gave such nervousness much thought. Maybe with those books – mere candyfloss compared to Sadie’s meaty and gut-wrenching story – which were longer and more “story-ish” there was not much of me invested in them. So maybe, I never even felt nervous in the run-up to publication…

With “Wear A Flower In You Hair – A dialogue with Sadie Mae Glutz” there is a lot of “me” in the book. Surprisingly it does not really tell a story that will sweep the reader off their feet. It is not a flowing romp through the joys and wonders of immortality, or a hazy battle set-upon the mangled crest of some hill, or a happy and tearful exploration of love, dance and loss.

This is Sadie’s story. It is an interview and as such Sadie guides where it takes us and the interviewer. She doesn’t have a happy story to tell. It doesn’t have a happy ending, nor does the story even make the reader or on-looker envious and wanting more.

But in the horror of her story, amongst the philosophical gems Sadie espouses, in the matter-of-fact analysis of all things related to life and death, in there somewhere is me. “Wear A Flower In You Hair – A dialogue with Sadie Mae Glutz” is a story of personal calamity and twisted perversion that maybe reflects how I feel. How angry I am that I lost people, angry that my universe is not what it should be. Daring to hope that maybe there is a universe in which the feelings and dreams I have can be real.

Not that slaughtering dozens of folk is my thing. Nor even is the belief that happiness derives from pain. No, my pain – and perhaps humanity’s pain or unhappiness – is reflected in the warped excesses of Sadie’s intelligence, that her searching for happiness derived instead a negative image of what we all (or usually all of us) desire from the society in which we live.

Whilst normal people want peace, love and happiness and will do anything to make those things real, Sadie on the other hand, is so damaged by life that her core values are destroyed. Instead of peace, love and happiness she wants the opposite. To her, society is corrupt and built upon lies which destroy people. To defend her thesis as such she has built a sumptuous belief system that offers an alternative hypothesis on how to create peace, love and happiness.

I suppose that in searching for my own solutions to the problems of achieving peace, love and happiness there is a little bit of my own beliefs in what Sadie is trying to do. I feel for her. I can see why she did what she did. I can understand her frame of reference, why she feels that the universe has slipped. I know those feelings that broke her. The loss of faith in parents and the world is enough to destroy any kid’s mental health.

So with so much of me, of my experiences tied-into this book, of my pain, and my mental wanderings, Sadie reflects me to a certain extent. The only difference being, I would be mortified to kill anything knowingly.

So there-in lies my odd feelings of anxiety over Sadie’s story, an interview that overtly seeks to find out her philosophical raison d’être for mass murder. Her interview with Deborah tells her story as a horror. Yet it is the hidden evolution of her thinking, the reasons for her madness that are me. And having that made public – no matter how allegorical – is a nervous affair. Maybe people won’t realise?


Don’t forget “Wear A Flower In Your Hair – A dialogue with Sadie Mae Glutz” is now available for pre-order from Amazon Kindle (USD$0.81, AUD$0.99, GBP£1.02). Note that these prices can change without notice. The book is released on January 17, 2015.
