Guardians – Released and Rated

As the book tour ends for Guardians release, I’ve become contemplative about the journey thus far. I’ve had to answer why I came up with this story, and what the Light and darkness really mean to me. I’m not sure I will ever be able to answer the why other than I had a dream that brushed the surface of what Guardians became. My dream inspired this story, and I’ve enjoyed developing it, but why is a very heavy question.

A question I know I can answer is what the Light and darkness mean to me. That’s easy. Light is the goodness of the world, the strength to overcome any fear or temptation. Light is perfection that we all wish to achieve, and what I love most about it is Light is life, so it is within us all.

Darkness, or Midnight, is the evil of the world. It consumes people until they are controlled by it. It closely resembles someone who has succumbed to a battle of one of the deadly sins. They may deny it, but their greed, gluttony, or pride controls their every decision.

I’ve known many people who have fallen to their vices, specifically drugs, but there have been too few that have come back from their stint in darkness to a life better than before. Those with survival stories talk about being saved from their battles by finding something or someone that brought them back to the light of life. These stories have also amazed me. Thus, Light and darkness, and the basis of the why.

I’m really not this deep, but this story really speaks to the testament of human will. Riley faces darkness in ways most people never have to, but she keeps fighting to stay in the Light. Every day people battle with pain and afflictions, but we can overcome them and live a life greater we ever imagined.
