Book: God's Owns Work by Peter Sallis-Smithcategories: Book, Religion, Christianity, Vampires, Witch-Finder, Witch-Hunter, Horror
Peter Sallis-Smithabout this book: I began writing this book with two ideas. The first was to fill a gap in the market for fiction dealing with witch-finders. The second was that I didn't really like the way vampires had been treated of late, i.e.; in romantic or appealing contexts.
I have a fascination with religion of many different cultures and I thought I could explore some of Christianities' more obscure, or darker aspects.
Writing the book was the easy part, or at least that's how I found it. I had a story to tell, and committing it to writing was as natural as breathing. The hard part was proofing, formatting and designing the cover...then marketing.
I think though that I am now tried and tested I can refine my approach and make the whole process smoother.
The main motive for this work is to spin a good horror story, but there are subtle little things that kept cropping up. Ideas about faith, God's path, the morality of Christianity during the 1700's. Which at the time felt great, considering I had no intention of including such 'serious' things in my book.
To be honest I just wanted to write a scary vampire novel. But the end result may make the reader question certain aspects of the characters involved, their motives and their ideals, which is great to get people thinking.
