J.D. Nettoabout this book: Jorge De Oliveira Netto is a new up and coming writer from Boca Raton, FL who late in 2012 completed his first novel, The Whispers of the Fallen.
The book follows the epic fantasy route as rumors about the Diary of Lucifer echoed throughout Elysium, the world Netto created so beautifully. Hidden from all human knowledge, the Diary was kept a secret, locked away in the small village of Agalmath.
"The idea came to me while driving down Interstate 95," says the 24 year old writer about the inspiration behind this marvelous plot. "I got home that night and I wrote about 40 pages of the book and knew the direction I wanted to take it."
Netto has been passionate about writing, and fantasy from a young age, "Ever since I was a young kid I was always interested in fantasy," says Netto. "I would always be in my room either drawing, writing, or making little books to give to family members."
It took Netto over six years to complete The Whispers of the Fallen. But he is already working on book number two.
"There will be four books," says the writer. "I've started on book two already, I don't want to wait another six years to publish the next one," he said jokingly.
Book two, which will be called Rebellion, is slated for a 2014 release.
Many have criticized the themes of the book, saying it's too dark but this isn't news for Netto.
"The controversy surrounding the dark themes of this novel are not anything new or unexpected to me," explains Netto. "Many have criticized the characters in the story, saying that they go against the beliefs of many. Honestly, my goal here is to inspire and entertain, showing that even during the darkest times, there will always be a shining light."
Apart from writing, Netto is also a graphic designer, illustrator, and musician.
