Thank you so much for your review and words of encouragement.

This is my debut novel and it was self published. I have not had any publisher interest as yet, so I am printing 1,000 paperback copies by end July. After this I will write the sequel.

I would be very grateful if you could recommend it to other NetGalley people as I do not have the lists like publishing houses to invite fans of supernatural thrillers to look at it. Do you write a review blog?

Background and Introduction


Writing is a lot of work but the real work starts when you try to get someone to pick up your book and read it. I have tried three social media platforms to put my book in front of potential readers and have summarised my experience here. I would love to hear from other authors and book promoters on what I could do or could have done better.

Life or Death by Michael Robotham

The Devil's Prayer by Luke Gracias
“We humans progressively exterminate every support mechanism. The earth progressively degenerates toward a form of quadriplegia, completely impotent to protect all it sustains.”

“Religion is like a knife; in the hands of a surgeon, it heals, but in the hands of a murderer, it kills.”

“You cannot hate someone if you have never loved them.”
Luke Gracias, The Devil's Prayer

“It is the prerogative of night, when thoughts, like relentless waves, break on the impressionable sands of the mind. Questions, theories, and suppositions come crashing ashore, and just like waves, they disappear into the grains of the mind without a trace. In this sea of uncertainty, stormed by nocturnal nightmares, the mind slips in and out of consciousness. It is the melting pot where logic and fantasy combine until supposition becomes hypothesis and hypothesis morphs into unsubstantiated fact.”
Luke Gracias, The Devil's Prayer

“The clear night, so distant from any light pollution, had summoned every star in the sky to shine.”
Luke Gracias, The Devil's Prayer
