Goddess of the Wild Thing
Paul DeBlassie III

Genre: Horror , Sci Fi and Fantasy

Book Description:

Goddess of the Wild Thing is a dramatic tale of one woman’s spiritual journey where magical happenings, unexpected turns of fate, and unseen forces influence her ability to love and be loved.

Eve Sanchez, a middle-aged woman and scholar of esoteric studies, encounters a seductive but frightening man who introduces her to a supernatural world in which the wicked powers of a surrogate mother’s twisted affection threaten love and life.

In the mystic realms of Aztlan del Sur, Eve and three friends struggle with whether bad love is better than no love and discover that love is a wild thing.

Excerpt I

Eve sharpened her focus. She saw
the sharp nail of a witch’s right finger tracing Graciéla’s image on a foggy
mirror in a grungy bathroom, touching the center of the mirror with a hatred so
intense, the glass burned red hot. The mirror in Graciéla’s kitchen cracked.
Shards jettisoned at the old healer then were magically warded off and drifted
in place about her head and neck.
Graciéla’s energy, tired as she
was, had fended off the pointed shards. She hadn’t been impaled. But the strain
had ushered her from one world to the next. Death came not by the hand of
another but by a weakened mind and body defending itself.
Eve, shaken, allowed her soft
touch to stay on Graciéla’s forehead, confirming the horror of what she’d seen.
Shamanic wisdom, often discussed between the two kindred souls, spoke to Eve as
she stroked her friend’s head, remembering that death provided passage for one
whose life had been well spent and whose time had come.

After a few moments, she closed
her friend’s green eyes and whispered tenderly, “Always my friend, always love,
always together in life and in death.” She stood and wiped the tears from her
eyes. A gray-brown, green-eyed, great horned owl hooted from the largest
cottonwood branch outside the back window.
Eve heard Shirley finishing her
call to the EMTs and police, and then walking to the front of the store to
await their arrival.
One large shard lay at the
end of the table, sharp tip pointed outward. It reflected Eve’s image, a
glowing red ember menacingly centered at the brow point

Interview with Paul DeBlassie III
Where do you get inspiration for your stories? Inspiration for Goddess of the Wild Thing and all my visionary thrillers leap out of the creative unconscious, a realm of reverie and surprise.
How did you do research for your book? My research starts with my dreams. Characters come to me, haunt my sleep, then I set to page what I have felt and seen during my nightly sojourns into the unconscious mind.
Do you have another profession besides writing? I have been a psychotherapist treating the unconscious mind for the past 40 years.
If you could go back in time, where would you go? Going back isn’t for me. Going down, into the timeless realm of the collective unconscious, the birthplace of healing stories is my passion and creative gig.

What is your next project? Bubbling out from the creative realm and being set to page (especially now that The Unholy and Goddess of the Wild Thing are written and flying through virtual realms) is The Goddess of Everything, a supernatural thriller of mother love gone bad and a son’s struggle to break free — a story of hope, potential, and the wonders of the unconscious mind.
