“Buy the ticket, take the ride.” The Book of Paul by Richard Long

 Teaser Tuesdays No. 20

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB Should Be Reading (she also hosts some other great memes) . Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  •  Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Also remember it is Tag it Tuesday! Let’s go show our love by tagging those books!

 Perhaps ten or twelve small volumes would be written in one hand with a similar binding style. Then there would be an equal number, or in some cases up to thirty or even fifty, written by another sicko, each and everyone of them covered with the skin of their victims.

The Book of Paul – location 674 of 7878 – 8%

 

This book is becoming a fantastical dark and exciting ride into and all over corners of reality. It is not for a the faint of heart, there are some pretty graphic scenes but for those that enjoy a dark slice of realism mixed in with a bit of occult, sprinkled with some Christian mythos and a few self and assisted flagellation moments  plus some bizarre escapes from reality … oh wait and love.. oh man I am only 20% of the way through and stopped to make sure I got my Teaser up this week! I was going to give you guys a cozy, but ohhhh just go grab it! It probably will be 99 ¢ next week, but it is only $3.99 right now and is the first of a seven volume set. Do not be discouraged or think this is to much, there is more to it than this disturbing window, but there are also quite a few of these lovely views as well as hope. I will be reviewing this next week for another awesome Novel Publicity tour!


The Book of Paul

Never alive…and never dead.”

In the rubble-strewn wasteland of Alphabet City, a squalid tenement conceals a treasure “beyond all imagining”–an immaculately preserved, fifth century codex. The sole repository of ancient Hermetic lore, it contains the authentic alchemical rituals for transforming thought into substance, transmuting matter at will…and attaining eternal life.

When a lusty, East Village tattoo artist has a torrid encounter with a battle-hardened loner, they are overwhelmed by the intensity of their feelings. Rose and Martin soon discover they are unwitting pawns on opposing sides of a battle that has shaped the course of human history. At the center of the conflict is Paul, the villainous overlord of an underground feudal society, who guards the book’s occult secrets in preparation for the fulfillment of an apocalyptic prophecy...(expanded synopsis)

The Book of Paul is the first of seven volumes in a sweeping mythological narrative tracing the mystical connections between Hermes Trismegistus in ancient Egypt, Sophia, the female counterpart of Christ, and the Celtic druids of Clan Kelly.

  5. Whoa! The first part of the teaser sounded like a boring description of publishing… and then suddenly there were sickos, and victims, and skin! Creepy!
