Dear Ms Resciniti,
When God goes AWOL, the race to take over the throne causes the righteous demon Liam to become more than just an amused bystander. The lead contender is Liam’s sworn enemy, the archangel Gabriel, and his tactics are far from angelic. After Liam scarred him in their last battle, Gabriel’s brothers deemed the angel worthless. He’s been trying to make Liam pay ever since. If Gabriel succeeds in taking control of Heaven, everything Liam has is at risk: his position, his life, and most importantly the one being he’s come to love despite their differences. Hiding his centuries-old relationship with the angel Mikael just got a whole lot harder.
Thus far, Gabriel’s attacks against Liam have been more a source of mocking by the demon towards Heaven’s less-than-competent solider. Liam was satisfied to just travel the Midwest on his motorcycle, secretly saving more souls than he condemned, while the archangel had his tantrum. But now, with Heaven in disarray, Gabriel must prove himself worthy as a leader . Finally figuring out how to kill Liam will do just that. So he takes a new approach to an old problem. The next soldier to go up against Liam will be trained by the best teacher in heaven—Mikael. As Liam watches Mikael struggle to decide how far he can go to protect his lover while also serving Heaven, Liam must save him from having to make the choice.
THE FORCES OF HEAVEN AND HELL ALIKE is an 82,000 word completed urban fantasy which stands alone, but has series potential. I appreciate the fact that you have embraced social media as an agent and, after reading multiple interviews that you have done since becoming an agent, I think that my manuscript would hold particular appeal for you as it includes elements of fantasy, action, and romance.
I am a member of the Works in Progress critique group, as well as a beta for the Book Country site. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2001 with a double minor in Religion and Creative Writing and have always been drawn to the interrelationship of the two.
My complete manuscript is available upon request. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.
