This book is a dystopian steampunk romance involving angels, demons, powerful life lessons, finding one's passion in life, healing, forgiveness and letting go of one's fear. It's the Alchemist meets the Notebook in a steampunk universe.
Can a lonely man overcome his own inner demons and embrace the pursuit of what God has ordained for his life? With his former life no longer possible, Mark McLeod faces an uncertain future alone without faith or hope as he finds God, his inner hero, other heroes and joins forces with celestial beings to assist humanity to reclaim their light against the Power Wolves and forces determined to dominate humanity.
We follow Mark, the main character as he learns about himself and his spiritual path and purpose. He rediscovers his passion for life and joins up with a band of steampunk angels. Together, they assist humanity to try and defeat an evil alliance and prevent the destruction of New Philadelphia in 1886. He finds love along the way as he struggles to create an eclectic band of misfits. I really giggled the vast majority of time I wrote it. This story is book 1 in a trilogy for which I am already working on book 2.
The artists, producers and musicians in Epic Lamplighters come from all different backgrounds. Each member brings a unique musical or artistic aesthetic to the band and we’ve grown comfortable mashing up influences and honing our unique steampunk sound. The artists draw from all over the country as they shine their brilliance with their creations. Together we form the Epic Lamplighters as we aim to inspire, mentor or assist creative people. The goal is to let go of our doubt and inhibitions and transcend the minds and go straight for the hearts of the collective. Kinda how God works really.
Steampunk is all about possibilities. The dream of another world, another time. A world where steam power and real human connections ruled the day. You could witness the love in the craftsmanship and architecture everywhere you looked. Somewhere along the way we lost all that in our quest for ever increasing convenience. The only thing stopping that look from manifesting today is our imagination. And lack of money. Perhaps too many llamas. Whatever you can imagine, you can create if you simply apply your effort, get in touch with some real masters and listen to your heart.
We aim to provide the inspirational framework to assist all that pent up creativity bursting inside your heart to come out and play! Some time soon, an actual band may be playing real music in the L.A. area soon. Maybe we'll produce music instead! We have to scour the L.A. area first! Stop back later for updates. Better yet, send us an email message!
