The Genesis of Seven (The Empyrean Trilogy, #1) By Sara M. Schaller YA Fantasy, Paranormal Hardcover, Paperback & ebook, 348 Pages July 7, 2020 by Designs by Seraphim

Eighteen-year-old Jordan Conway has always wanted to help people, but helping seven archangels to achieve their divine duty was never quite what he had in mind…

When Jordan is entrusted by the head nun of his orphanage to deliver a mysterious backpack to a New York City address, he comes unexpectedly face-to-face with Archangel Gabriel. Their acquaintance fast uncovers a labyrinth of secrets that connect Jordan’s once-normal life to an ancient heavenly prophecy. Now, he must help Gabriel to reunite the archangels before evil forces grow too strong.

Soon, Jordan and Gabriel find themselves on a divine quest across the globe, while deep in the pits of Hell, Satan plots his return to earth. To gain control, however, Satan needs the powerful prophetic objects locked safe inside Jordan’s backpack—and the devil will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

With that notion threatening his only family and the safety of his newfound friends, Jordan must do whatever it takes to protect the ones he loves and help the archangels succeed. If that means sacrificing all he thought he knew to go to war with the devil himself? Bring it on.

Jordan’s Tips in Working with an Archangel

Listen when they tell you to do something
The angels have far more experience dealing with the fallen then I do, so I would advise to listen to them. I notice whenever I don’t listen to them, or whenever I am left to decide the outcome of a situation on my own, it usually ends up badly. Mainly with me getting hurt.

Expect the unexpected…at all times
Seriously. When I think I know everything there is to know about angels, they always surprise me with a new detail. Usually that’s really important, like how you’re not supposed to touch celestial objects.

Get used to their constant vigilance and protection
Angels don’t sleep. And they don’t eat. So, they constantly nurture me to make sure I’m taking care of myself. They also never leave my side. I typically have at least one angel with me wherever I go for protection. It’s better to get used to it than fight it. The angels are set in their ways.

Never forget they have a divine duty
Even though they’ve been on Earth for centuries, the angels are here for a reason. They have a divine purpose to defeat evil. It’s easy to forget because they are fun to be around, but when Satan shows up ready for a fight, the reality of who they are becomes all the more serious. Remembering this at all times helps to never underestimate the enemy.

Take the time to get to know them
Each of the angels are unique, and they all have different interests. Trying to understand them goes a long way in actually helping them save the world. It also just makes for good times since I’ve been able to learn so many new things from them.

Second Chance at Love

Whether your marriage was blissful or challenging, lengthy or short, it didn’t end the way you imagined. Regardless of how you found yourself without a life partner, you may be at a point where you’d like to experience the love of a spouse again. Authors Shirley and Jim Mozena experienced devastating losses and then struggles in their relationships before finding renewed love with each other, and in Second Chance at Love they offer their insights to these difficult questions:

  • Are you really ready?
  • Is now the time?
  • How do you know if you’ve found the right one?
  • Is the potential pain of losing another spouse worth it?

The authors approach their answers with practical reality and their own vulnerability. They share the experiences of their first marriages, their second marriages, their journeys through what seemed like devastating losses, and the gifts of finding love and another chance to share their lives with a spouse after death and divorce.

In addition to the down-to-earth guidance on the situations you face when considering marrying again, Shirley and Jim have created valuable questionnaires to identify issues and facilitate discussions with potential mates. The information contained in this book will give you confidence and peace as you navigate these hopeful waters.

Author Interview

How long does it take you to write a book?

About two years. I write the first draft, work with a coach, re-write, share with my writing group, re-write again. Work with an editor and then it’s done. Kind of a long “pregnancy” but the baby is worth all of the time!

2.  As a non-fiction writer, have you ever thought about transferring over to fiction?

I’ve thought about it, tried it a little and so far am not happy with my results. I love to read fiction, though and get ideas for my non-fiction writing.

3.Do you prefer writing in silence or to music?

I like silence sometimes and if I play music, I enjoy classical.

4. Give six things your readers may not know about you?

1. I climbed Mt Hood six times

2. I play violin

3. Love to dance even though I’m not great at it.

4. Climbed Mt St. Helens 11 times

5. I flipped a sports car on its top—one day after my husband installed a roll bar.

6. I took flight lessons in a Taylorcraft airplane.

5.  Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans?

I am honored when a reader comments—or even reads what I’ve written.
