Special Guest: Author Gordon Davidescu!

Today’s Special Guest is Author Gordon Davidescu showcasing his novel Kate! Enjoy & Comment

While Jean-Michel Pinot attempts to find some semblance of love in New York, Felix Twickson just wants to go back to living a human life complete with feeling that there’s a reason to get up every morning. Sandy, one of Felix’s best friends who is finally getting over it, finds herself entangled in a relationship she isn’t even sure she can handle.

EXCERPT:

As Jean-Michel Pinot’s eyes glanced towards the heavens, his mind wandered away from the busy intersection where he was standing, awaiting the bright white walk signal. He thought of the cotton clouds hanging in the sky, like a baby’s mobile only without the delicate melody that would lull the infants off to sleep in their cribs.

That kind of pacifying effect was most needed in a city like this one, so tense and aggravated at times. What kind of melody might be playing, Jean-Michel pondered, for the enormous mobile that peacefully drifted above the island of Manhattan? Perhaps a delightful little piano rendition of Gershwin’s Embraceable You? It would be antithetical to all of the cacophony that went on down below. Were he not used to it, it would also be quite difficult to think at all. Yet it wasn’t quite that hard to get a good thought going – namely because he was used to the noise, and it had become a sort of a white noise, a background for his life. When he found himself in more suburban areas, the sudden noise of a police car racing by or an ambulance would give him a start – but here, it was just another note on the 88 keys of a Manhattan keyboard.

The harsh brushing of another man’s shoulder brought Jean-Michel back to the earth, where an individual of medium height had fired off a less than pleasant hand gesture to a taxi cab which had nearly hit him after running the light. What was the hurry, anyhow? Perhaps the people involved had no concept or grasp of their own mortality, and how saving a minute or two wouldn’t matter in the end since one would die either way. Where was he going that was so important that it merited the giving of the finger gesture? Unless it was to the clinic to get some dialysis work done, Jean-Michel thought, it probably wasn’t all that gravely important. Perhaps if he were going to the surgeon to get outfitted with a new heart, or if he had some sort of neurological disorder which caused such poor memory that he didn’t even remember that he had gone off to the deli to buy a sandwich for his post-delivery wife… more likely, however, the man just wanted to get home to watch the Knicks. Which wasn’t, he thought, all that bad in terms of reasons to rush somewhere… but certainly not middle-finger worthy.

Where was the cab going that it was in such a rush that it nearly hit someone? If it had hit someone en route, would it have been worth it? Probably not. A court case would surely follow, multiple lawyers would be involved, and thousands of dollars would be thrown in every direction trying to figure out if the driver was liable for damages, if some prison time was necessary… and all in the name of getting from where one was to where one needed to be as quickly as humanly possible. Would the cab company have to pay for the fees, or would it be the cab driver? What if the person that got hit ended up losing the case – would he have to pay for the company’s legal fees?

Hellhound first hit
the publishing world in October of 2013. Book one sat on the bestsellers list
for over 11 months as three other books followed in the series. Fans drove each
book onto the best sellers list as they devoured the story line and became
addicted to the Hellhounds.
The story begins
with our protagonist, Halo Bay, in a struggle for her life. She has always had
bad luck with men, but the violence spills over as she defends herself from her
abusive boyfriend of five years. She is forced to kill him in self-defense, but
before she is able to incapacitate him he stabs her in the side. With her
adrenaline rush fading, she falls to the floor and starts to lose consciousness.
In these final moments she asks for forgiveness, even though she was the one
who was attacked. This need to be absolved of her sin will change her life
forever.
She wakes up in a
strange place, darkness and whispers surrounding her. Then the memories flood
back, engulfing her senses and bringing her to her knees. She had murdered
him…the weight of it all takes her breath away but just as she feels completely
overwhelmed a hand reaches out from the darkness and pulls her into the light.
It is Gunner, a Roman, a warrior…the first Hellhound.
Halo is given two
choices. She can either sew her eyes and mouth shut and wander around purgatory
forever or follow Gunner to hell and train to defend humanity against the
demons who rise.
Which will she choose?
In August of 2014
Hellhound went into production for film. Directed by award winning director,
Antonio Pantoja, this short film depicts the end of Halo’s mortal life and the
beginning of her immortal one. The film is now being screened by the Sundance
committee and multiple other film festivals here in the US. You can check out
the short movie trailer on youtube here http://youtu.be/C7T9e6eXgtE  You can also check the movie out on IMDb.
The full length film
is being planned out now with the hopes of going into production in the Spring
of 2016.
