Not because I love talking about my work as a medium (though that's part of it), but because as soon as I finished the book I realized that I was perhaps creating a big problem for myself.

What if someone came to me looking for a mediumship reading after reading this book, expecting me to be just like Eldritch?! The horror. See, Eldritch's experience is definitely inspired by my own, but it's amped way up, and there's definitely a sprinkling of fiction and fantasy over the whole thing.

I'll try to keep this short, because I could really go on for days about the whole thing, but what it comes down to is that the senses Eldritch uses to communicate with the Gods are slightly different than the ones that I use - plus they are like x10 for the sake of the story being exciting. Had my sole job and purpose for the past ten years been to communicate with the unseen, I might be able to say - yes, his techniques and work are exactly like mine. In reality, Eldritch is incredibly clairaudient (hearing), where my strongest sense lies towards clairvoyance (seeing). Eldritch hearing the Gods in complete sentences I felt was necessary to tell the story.

tl;dr - Yes, the main character's techniques and work are inspired by my own, but they are punched up appropriately to align with his history, and to make for better storytelling.

Thank you so much for this question!(less)

For a new author, this is a super solid first work. SLAM offers an all-too-brief glimpse into an exciting sci-fi universe. I think that anyone who enjoyed The Hunger Games is going to find the territory of this book familiar, but also new and ...more
