    Power of Perception writers with Victor Nieves

    in Spirituality

     


                    My name is Victor Nieves. I’m 23 years old, and I live in Charles Town, West Virginia, right on the tip of the Eastern Panhandle.


     From a young age, I loved writing short stories and screenplays and my friends and I would play these overelaborate make-believe games when we were kids. That’s how my novel, Epitaph: Reveille would come to take form. I’d always wanted to find a way to communicate my ideas, my experiences with my friends, to others. So in my ninth grade year in high school I wrote the first paragraph of what would become Epitaph: Reveille. After high school,  I attended the Art Institute of Washington for a short time with the intent of pursuing a career in filmmaking, only to discover the stress of such a career was not for me.


    So, I fell back on my writing. In 2011, my grandmother brought to my attention an article in the local newspaper about a local author, Lauren Carr, hosting a writer’s workshop here in Charles Town. I was intrigued, so I decided I would sign up.


    It was so funny. I came in the first day with the first chapter of Reveille in my hands and quite nervously asked Lauren if she would be willing to take a look at my work. She kindly complied, and the next week when I went in to class, she told me she thought that the first chapter was written very well, and then asked if I had a complete manuscript. I told her I didn’t, that I’d had about half the entire novel written. She asked how long it would take to complete the manuscript, and I told her maybe a year or so. 


    Epitaph: Reveille was released in September of 2014, and is just the first book in a military/science fiction trilogy. The next novel, Epitaph: Defiance, I hope to have released by this time next year!

    Above and Beyond - The Incredible True Story of Extraterrestrial Contact

    in Spirituality

    Lisette Larkins has had extraordinary extraterrestrial encounters since childhood. The importance of them was to reveal to her the possibility of experiencing a “chronic state of well-being” and to inspire the recognition that, as spiritual beings in human bodies, we are designed to create to the same degree and with the same ability as extraterrestrials do! This means that the very purpose of our soul is to allow our imagination to run free and to be, do, and have anything and everything we want.We are designed to be Creative Beings! When we are not in the process of creating, we are actually spiraling downward. But we cannot create what we want when we are not feeling good.
