Guest post on WHAT INSPIRES THE author of "The Last Omen: Possessed" Steven Nedelton ~ presented by A.B. Tours

My interests are in the action, general thriller genre. Up till now, my books were based on the news events in the past. I would read newspapers, the associated history and get ideas for books. Some of the inspiration came from the previously read top sellers too, but, in general, it was the form of their content rather than the content itself that guided me. What  I usually search for are a few interesting tidbits, not the main incident itself. The central item is often already taken by other writers who were alerted much earlier by their journalist friends (as usual, it’s still ‘who you know’). As an example, my book ‘Dance of Shadows’ was based on the paranormal powers used in the USSSR and US espionage. Several books were already published based on this central idea—Including several secret yet now known such incidents. I did quite a bit of searching on my own and came up with a completely different story. The book took five years of writing and research.

I am still involved in searching the Internet for the top stories that might provide me with that spark that lights up my imagination and starts me working on that ‘new project.’

This occult suspense story is about a possessed woman, a journalist/author trapped by her demon and a soldier of fortune hunting untouchables. The journalist/author, C. Adams, inherits a fortune from his uncle. He is pursuing a successful business woman when he discovers that she is possessed by a demon. She warns him, but the demon turns vicious and the journalist is exposed to blood-freezing occult encounters. In a parallel narrative, a foreign soldier, married to a New York City nurse, and desperately looking for employment in the New York City, turns to bounty hunting the most dangerous untouchables. At one point, the paths of the two men cross. Detective Richter is trying to unscramble the puzzle, but cannot control the events. What happens next, when demons possess the naïve—is up to the reader to discover.

The partly true-life thriller tale contains horror settings, unrelenting action and true demon encounters. If you never believed in the paranormal, you will after reading this entertaining book.
