Acknowledgements

For so long I thought this “interview” would never be published, as the subject matter is too serious and effects too many interested parties. But as I promised, it has been written-up and published. I will be damned, I am sure.

In getting this far heaps of people have assisted, mostly without even knowing it. First off, Heather for reminding me of all the duplicitous people I left behind. Thanks for pushing me.

All the staff at Gloria Jean’s Riccarton Mall (Westfield), for their happiness to serve me and put up with me writing in their café for hours and hours, days and days.

I have to thank Abbie for being there in the dark days when I needed a rant and support. You are a goddess amongst mortals and inspiration for a character.

Way, way before I ever thought about writing, a little baby showed me that yes I could still invent stories – so this is what I do because you made me do it.

Thanks to Roland. Man, just thinking about you gives me a guilt trip. Best wishes.

I have to thank all those people friends and strangers who said nice things and did nice things just because they are nice. And to those who praised me in the face of drivel, I thank you even more for not breaking my confidence. Here’s some more.


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, so there is just under three weeks to wait.

Cover and description:

81exuOGJ9EL__SL1500_

The story of Sexy Sadie as told by herself from prison. A shocking and horrific account as to what happened and why, explaining the real philosophy behind her mass murdering – a powerful belief system that shakes one’s own sense of stability and understanding about the world and people around us. Are you ready to open your mind?

This book is for adults. Contains graphic descriptions of family dysfunction, swearing, sex, drug use, murder, and justification for murder.

‘Me, well I wanted to explore the spiritual boundaries of the human being. You know, how people feel and react to evil. You know about karma – what goes around comes around don’t you?’
‘Hmm, yeah…’
‘Huh, that’s just part of it though. You know that every early death, every evil committed against a person results in equal goodness elsewhere?’
‘What? What?’
‘Yeah. Pain is goodness. It is natural then that pleasure is badness, evil. So there is a circle: the more pain the more pleasure, the more pleasure, the more pain.’
‘Yeah, but you guys, you lived a life of pleasure, drugs and sex.’
‘Yeah.’
‘So, what pain was there in doing that? You were hardly balancing out the karma were you?’
‘The pleasure we got from life, of living by our own rules – we had none – meant we had the power, inside each one of us, to continue the cycle of pain, spread it into society and help charge-up the karma cycle. The pain we caused meant more happiness.’
‘Happiness is a warm gun?’
‘Ha-ha, you have it!’
‘It is utterly mad.’
‘You see the power of what I’m saying. It scares you.’
‘Of course it does. How can you warp logic so much that innocent people die? For such a dire and terrifying possibility, that death, that pain, are good things. That they cause happiness.’
‘Yet you instinctively knew that a warm gun equals happiness?’
‘It’s the name of a fucking song, not some metaphysical empiricism!’
‘Yet you connected the idea and the song instantly.’
‘It is not that difficult. You know, to make “happiness” you cause pain.’
‘Right…”

Tripping back to Ancient Persia

Posted in Lilith, Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2014 by Kaden Brown

The part that follows “Lilith” is exciting. This book will be the second of three, to be called either “Aytal” – after the lead male character  or “A-Cee” the new protagonist Si-Kee friend of Lilith. The third and final book of the trilogy has not yet been named. The trilogy will be compiled into one book called “Immortal Forever” (#immortal4eva).

Persian Immortals attack Alexander's army.

Persian Immortals attack Alexander’s army. An intriguing coincidence?

First though, here is Lilith remembering what went down, before her siblings killed her…

Mama seemed worried, as if she was deep in thought, contemplating something bad or faced with a problem she could not find the solution to. Dressed in her russet colored top and brown woolen dress she stood with her back to me, her sad demeanor instantly stopping me in my running excitement of play and imposing on me a sudden anxiety full of dread and fear of the unknown. Whatever had my mama worried could only be bad for me and my siblings.

I wondered where paps was. Looking around the dark house it was clear he was nowhere inside. He had to be out in the heat, probably inspecting the wheat up by the village wall. Tiamat and Petros were playing with boulders, down by the river where I had just left them a few minutes previous. © Kaden Brown. All rights reserved 2011-14. Kasparek was playing in the reeds upstream a bit. Here was the most important person in my life in obvious distress and worry; I just stood there cradling the bowl made from clay that I’d made with enthusiasm and pride, running back home to show her and paps my new work ready to be fired.

Instead, I stood there a little breathless, trying to still my lungs as my heart beat ever stronger and the echoes of my feet died with my realization.

“Mama? Look at what I made, mama.” I pleaded with her, simply hoping she would acknowledge me and give that big huge smile that she had. If she did that I would be happy. It would mean that mama was fine and there was nothing to be scared of. Instead she remained standing there, hands clasped to the bench, turned away.

Now this had me scared. Mama was rarely angry with me or in such a bad mood I could not get her attention. Putting the unbaked clay bowl down on the floor I nervously played with my dirty fingers, puzzled as to what to do.

“Mama, what is wrong?”

“Lilita, my young nightling, were it but for your papa I would have nee only two children, for we can ill afford to keep twice that number.”

This unkind way of speaking to me was a shock. I froze where I stood, my feet suddenly heavy and my head swimming so fast I could barely move. Surely she was losing her mind, or something terrible had happened.

Seeing mama turn around and look down at me should have been a moment of joy, as it had been hundreds of times previous. The feeling that something had happened, changed, struck me again, like a finality of consequence beyond which I could never forget. I stood there transfixed through fear as the giant looming figure of my mama stepped closer.

“Go outside. You paps will be home soon with the sun setting. Make sure your sisters come and see me. Go now and tell them both to come see me.”

Turning from the cool darkness of my family home I stepped outside into the blazing sun all ready to sprint to Tiamat and Petros to fetch them home. Before I did so, I hesitated, standing in the dusty dirt outside and peered into the house where my mama was standing hands to her face in tears, where she collapsed to the floor with catatonia.

Something very, very bad and awful was happening. I had to go get my sisters home urgently. With a self-reassuring resolve I tore my eyes from that awful sight of my mother, and ran from my home toward the river.

“Rhesus A” Comes Back

Posted in Rhesus A - a Vanguard Newborn with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 26, 2013 by Kaden Brown

Happy news just in time for Christmas and the New Year: “Rhesus A – a Vanguard Newborn” about our favourite baby vamp, Zetty, has been re-published just in time for those intrigued readers.

rhesusa_poster_small

Though the edition that is being published is the original hardcopy only, which includes the original draft version of the first chapter or-so of “Lilith”, there are plans afoot to get “Rhesus A” edited at some stage in the future. Sadly, an error during the extremely late stages of writing saw all the formatting of the book lost. So I thank my lucky stars that the book even survived! However, there is no timeline on possible editing.

For what will possibly be a limited time you can buy the hardcopy version (all 424 pages) of “Rhesus A” from Amazon (link coming asap, and CreateSpace: https://www.createspace.com/3790494)

On The Way

A quick note, in between stuff going on with this site, that “Lilith” has now been sent to all the Australian winners from the Goodreads Giveaway. Let me know if your copy does not arrive, and we’ll see what can be done. Tracking details are available too, if you want it.

Happy reading!
