Princess of the Light
Princess of the Light 
Please welcome author NN Light, who also happens to be a
personal friend, and one of the editors for my business, The Author’s Secret.
Her book, Princess of the Light is helping people everywhere learn how to share
food and to open their lives to help others. This post is a special character interview with Joe Deacons. 

About the Book

Title Princess of the Light
Genre Urban Fantasy Romance
Author N. N. Light
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
Gabriel, the Archangel and Messenger of God – yeah that Gabriel,
visited Mary Miller. He told her, as the key she is destined to spread the Light
and vanquish the Darkness. Her first assignment is to restore the soul of the Walking
Man. Sounds simple enough until she’s thrown in the face of evil, and then Joe Deacons
enters her heart. This battle just got a lot more complicated. She must complete
her mission without losing all she loves.

Interview with Joe Deacons

Tell us about yourself, please.
My name is Joe Deacons
and it’s a pleasure to be here. I’m a little out of my element here but the author
assured me this was all for the good of the story, calling me every woman’s book
boyfriend…whatever that means. Anyway, I am an urban planner for the city of Golden
Lake. Oh and I am in love with Mary, the Princess of the Light.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
Believing in what I can’t
see or logically explain causes me great difficulty. Take Mary, for example. One
day she tells me she is the Princess of the Light and knowing her as an honest person,
I had no choice but to believe her. She is a faithful person and it wasn’t until
I saw a demon for the first time that I truly believed. Sometimes I am still amazed
that she chose me to love… or maybe it was just meant to be.
What’s your external complication? In the story world your
author created, explain what it is you fear most.
Losing Mary, either to
death or to Than. Than is a big bad demon, second in command to Lucifer, and I see
lust in his eyes when he spars with Mary. It makes my blood boil and I want to run
a sword through him.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes
living worthwhile.
Mary is the most beautiful
woman in the world and every day, I thank God for her. She brings such beauty to
my life and loves me for me, not my parents’ money. She tells me the truth and keeps
me honest. She is brave, braver than me, and she makes me laugh. She’s strong but
she shows me her insecurities too. I’m a better man because of her and I love her
so much.
What would that person say about you?
She would say I’m being
modest and too reserved in this interview and that I’m her warrior and her strength.
She boasts I’m her protector and I like that. What man doesn’t want to protect those
he loves? She would also say I have a heart of gold and I’m not afraid of anything.
What is your family like?
My father is the king
of decorum and he believes in preserving the Deacons name, at all costs. My mother
is a generous loving soul who could outdo Martha Stewart in a hostess contest. She
has always been there for me and I love her dearly. My younger brother, Edward,
is a historian and theologian. He is more like my father and that is fine by me.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you NOT want
it to be, and why?
This actually happened
to me in the book. A few years ago, a gold-digger named Leslie convinced me to marry
her. She pretended to love me and I loved her. Two days before the wedding, she
dumped me for another man. I was heartbroken and I vowed to never let another woman
get close again.
Then Mary came into my
life and the walls around my heart melted. I was happily in love and then BAM! Leslie
shows up when least expected. For more, you have to read Princess of the Light.
Are you happy with the way your story ended? Why or why not?
Yes, I’m happy with how
my story ended. There are a few surprises along the way and I can’t wait for the
next story. I keep nudging the author to have me more involved in the story but
she refuses to listen to me.

About the Writer

You have the length of
a tweet (140 characters) to describe yourself as a writer. Let’s see what you can
do.
I’m a storyteller who loves to write stories filled with high
stakes, emotionally-charged conflict, earth-shaking romance and big bads.
Why did you choose to
write about this character?
I chose to write about Joe because I thought the world needed
a hero who was strong yet willing to let the woman he loves be front and center.
Love is not dead and neither is chivalry. He is Mary’s partner, lover and warrior.
Was there anything you
discovered about this character that was a surprise to you?
I was surprised how caring he was. Even with all that was going
on in the various battle scenes, his first reaction is to make sure people are okay.
Why do you write?
I write because I’m a storyteller. I have been blessed with the
gift of writing ever since I was a little girl. I have all these stories that need
to be told swirling in my head. I just have to get them down on paper. Finding time
to write is the hardest part of being a writer.
What do you want to write
next?
I’m in the process of writing book two in the Princess of the
Light series. I also have a mystery swirling around that my muse insists is next
to be published.
What other character from
this book do you want to write about? Care to tell us why?
I’d love to write more about Than. He is a demon from way back
and in fact, used to be an angel. In Heaven, he was the Virgin Mary’s Protector.
But that was before the Rebellion. Now, he’s Lucifer’s second in command and he’s
a key player in the battle of good versus evil.
Are any sequels planned
for this book?
Yes, I have currently five more books planned in the Princess
of the Light series.
Is there anything you’d
like to say to your readers?

Interview with Miriam Miller aka Princess of the Light

Tell us about
yourself, please.
My name is Miriam Miller and I am the Princess of the Light.
I am in my late twenties and I work as a manager of a bookstore. I try to live
a normal life but with angels and demons popping up, it’s hard to explain
sometimes. My favorite thing to do in my free time is to curl up with a good
book. I love books.
What’s your internal
limitation? Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what
it is you need to do during this story?
Hmm, I would say my biggest limitation is to ignore the
inner demons within and to have a pure heart. Battling with demons is not as
hard as you might think. I can wail on demons all day but to stay pure, to
focus on the Light is a constant struggle. It’s the true test of evil versus
good and for me, my heart needs to be pure. If not, I am no better than the
demons I face.
What inner doubt
causes you the most difficulty?
For me, it’s believing that I can’t do what needs to be
done. I have been chosen to be the Princess of the Light. Who am I compared to
others? I am not a pious woman like Mother Teresa. I’m just me, plain-old
Miriam. What if I fail? Will God send me to Hell?
What’s your external
complication? In the story world your author created, explain what it is you
fear most.
Dealing with the constant attacks by Than and Lisbeth is
enough to fear but what I dread most is becoming a warrior for darkness. I have
been blessed with all these abilities and yet the temptation is so strong to
give in to Than. Becoming a weapon of darkness is my worst nightmare.
Tell us about your
significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
What would that
person say about you?
Joe Deacons is the love of my life and he is the most
caring, wonderful man in the world. Even though he came from a wealthy family,
he is filled with compassion for those in need. He shows kindness to others and
strives to make a difference in the world. He has shown me what it means to
love another unconditionally and I wouldn’t know what I would do without him. His
love gives me the strength to fight the darkness and together we cannot be
defeated!
Joe would definitely say that I am his angel and I can do no
wrong. He would probably also mention that I have an inner strength that defies
explanation. He would gush about all the ways that I give to others without
regard to myself. He would finally mention that I am a faithful woman.
What special skills
do you rely on?
I have many skills ranging from athletic ability to weapons
training but the greatest skill I have to let go and be an instrument of the
Light. Pushing aside my ego and needs, being one with the Light is the greatest
advantage I have against the darkness. The Light defeats the darkness. Knowledge
is also a terrific skill. Knowing how to defeat the demons and how to spread
the Light is almost as good as a sword.
Are you happy with
the way your story ended? Why or why not?
Yes, I was thrilled with how it ended. I thought my author
did a fantastic job and even threw in a few surprises that I was not expecting.

About the Writer

You have the length
of a tweet (140 characters) to describe yourself as a writer. Let’s see what
you can do.
I’m an inspirational writer who makes the world a better place.
I create interesting characters who take the reader inside their head.
Why did you choose to
write about this character?
I chose to write about Miriam because she is the Princess of
the Light and the reader wants to know more about her. She is my favorite
character in the book and I hope that readers will love her as much as I do.
Was there anything
you discovered about this character that was a surprise to you?
I discovered that even when the chips are down, she rises up
like a phoenix. She has an inner strength that I wish I had.
When you wrote about
this character, what made you the most happy? What made you the most sad?
I loved writing the love story from Miriam’s point of view. It
reminded me of my own love story with my husband. I also loved writing the
final battle scene.
What made me cry was when Lisbeth gets the upper hand on
Miriam and Miriam thinks she has failed. It’s the lowest point in her life and
she feels such despair.
Why do you write?
I write because I have something to say and if I don’t get
it out, I will suffocate. Writing is like breathing for me and I have been
blessed with the gift of writing since I was a little girl.
What other character
from this book do you want to write about? Care to tell us why?
I’d love to do the back-story on Than. He is a powerful
demon and was once an angel like Ethanial. I may have to write a prequel
telling his story someday.
Are any sequels
planned for this book?
Yes, I have outlines for four more books and have started
writing book two.
Is there anything you’d
like to say to your readers?
I first wanted to thank you for taking time out of your busy
lives to read my book. I hope you are inspired and enjoy the world I have
created. There is a message here and I hope you will join me in spreading the
Light. Just like Miriam, we all can make a difference.
I also wanted to let the readers know that a portion of each
book that is sold will go directly to food banks and other services so that
people like the Walking Man are cared for. Together, we can end hunger and help
those in need.

Princess of the Light 
When you hear “Christian press,” heart-pounding suspense
isn’t always what comes to mind. Why is that? The beings aren’t made up—they are
reality. What is more terrifying than coming face to face with the knowledge that
demons do exist, and it is only our faith that gives us power over them? Spiritual
embattlement is not a made up element relegated simply to fiction—its emotional
warfare ensues every day, whether we choose to acknowledge it or not.
Our Presence imprint is our line of adult genre fiction. The
focus here is on Speculative Fiction, and the main themes are light on romance and
heavily laden with spiritual and emotional warfare. This is where the real battle
takes place. When you pick up a book from this imprint, by the time you set it down,
we want your heart to beat in a different rhythm.
Think you have what it takes to make someone who isn’t afraid
of demons squirm? I’m Jessica Schmeidler, Managing Editor, and that’s what I’m looking
for. If you can take me a on a journey of emotional warfare that makes me more thankful
to be on the winning side (God wins—I’ve read the end of the book), I want to see
what you have.
The genres I’d like to see come in are thriller/suspense, science
fiction, supernatural, dystopian, ad so forth. This line is for our adult readership.
My most current #MSWL (Manuscript Wish List):
·        
A legal suspense laden with spiritual warfare.
·        
Anything with a strong connection to Ireland or cable-knit
sweaters.
·        
A thriller with strong themes of spiritual embattlement—I
want to feel like I’m on a roller coaster with untested brakes.
Upcoming Events:
I’m Marissa Fuller, Senior Editor, and here’s what I’m looking
for. Let me tell you about what must be the first workshop/contest hybrid for a
speculative fiction short story anthology of all time! Jessica Schmeidler (http://twitter.com/thewriteshadow)
and I will be co-hosting this “12 step program” throughout the month of
July. Our goal is to have a contest at the end of the month. Winners will be published
in our anthology of speculative short fiction.
Jessica and I will alternate postings between our respective
blogs. My six blog installments will be about crafting short stories, with a speculative
fiction focus. Jessica’s focus will be more on drawing emotional and spiritual warfare
into these stories- a necessary ingredient, as the anthology will be published by
Anaiah. I will link to Jessica’s posts at the end of each of my own.
Hopefully, our waxing on the form will enable participants to
craft a brand new piece to submit to our contest at the end of our workshop, or
to help them polish an existing piece. We look forward to this fun workshop, and
we hope to see you there!
What we’re looking for (contest #MSWL):
  • Speculative
    fiction short stories with a futuristic bent. Themes can be anything from apocalyptic
    to dystopian to sci-fi—even just an ordinary thriller set in the not-so-near
    future. All stories must be 5,000-20,000 words in length and contain an implied
    message of faith or inspiration. Spiritual warfare is a definite plus.
