Guest Post | The Bond by Xavier Axelson

Today, we have Xavier Axelson on the blog. He’s gonna answer a few questions so we can get to know him better and tell us a little about his story, The Bond. Welcome, Xavier!

The Bond

What draws you to the genre you write?

Duplicity, and the eternal struggle between light and dark.

Why do you write?

To get in touch with the best parts of myself and tap into creation.

What did you learn from your latest project?

So many things, this book-child was a real teacher. First, good intentioned beings are sometimes best to be avoided. Secondly, sometimes you have to believe in the story more than anything else, and trust it’s worth being told.

Do you believe in writer’s block? If so, what do you do to avoid it?

I absolutely believe in it, though I just sometimes don’t feel like writing. I’m not sure if that’s the same thing. There are always ideas, but I am very good at doing anything else instead, which is ridiculous, because once I’m writing I love it.

Do you read the reviews of your book?

I do. I find the reviews often give an insight into what readers connect with within the story.

What do you do to relax?

Read. Meditate. Get into nature.

The Bond

In a small New England town, three men, each facing unthinkable horrors, must rely on their friendship to destroy an evil beyond imagination.

elementalFour men are about to discover things are definitely not what they seem…including themselves. Declan Makavoy, small town farmer and single father, finds out it’s not just his thumb that’s green. Ivan Soresceau, a local reporter, who always plays with fire in life and love, is about to discover what it means to be burned. Chester Silberglocke, the ailing but sage chiropractor, finds his death only the beginning of an atmospheric afterlife. Vinny Pirelli, the local swimming champ may make waves inside and outside the pool but has no idea he is the last piece in a dangerous and life-changing puzzle. Seduction and unearthly occurrences are only the beginning in what proves to be a race against time as Declan, Ivan, Chester, and Vinny are pitted against a dark force beyond imagination, in the ultimate battle of good versus evil.
