GOD GAMES SciFi BOOK LAUNCHED TODAY!

Today is a special day! GOD GAMES, my first FOUR (count’em FOUR) star rated Science Fiction book launched on Amazon/GoodReads.

Judge Jehoel and the Cherubim Commander- Playing Card

In GOD GAMES, all the characters are named after biblical angels, although I did take some liberties as is the norm in SciFi.  In general, I used an angel’s name whose description came close to matching the trait of a particular character.   Each playing card features two main GOD GAMES characters reflecting their role in the book and their relationship to each other.   Check out this blog post for more information on how I named…

First discussed by Albert Einstein in 1935 then further developed by others, the Law of Quantum Entanglement basically says two separate particles, that have been properly conditioned, will know what the other knows and you can not described one without describing the other.  Applied on a human…
