Epic fantasy novel may get its own soundtrack!

A Chronicle of Chaos Soundtrack

I have some very exciting news. A fantastic opportunity has come my way.

My fantasy novel, A Chronicle of Chaos, may get its own official soundtrack!

If I can get 65 pre-orders of the soundtrack, an original, unique score will be composed and performed by an orchestra. The composer will read the book and write ten tracks which represent the events and themes of the book! I am SO excited!

Visit this link and you can pre-order your digital copy of the A Chronicle of Chaos soundtrack. The beauty of this is if I don’t hit my 65 orders, the soundtrack won’t be made ( which will be very sad ) but nobody has to pay anything. You only pay when the soundtrack is composed.

Haven’t read A Chronicle of Chaos? Here’s the blurb:

In a world ravaged by war, the paths of two warriors are about to cross with world-shattering consequences.

Chaos is a soldier of The Children of the Light, and fights in the name of destiny, honor and glory. Arrogant and headstrong, he believes he is the strongest warrior in the land, until a fateful coincidence puts him at the mercy of the demon Anathema.

The two strike up an intense rivalry, but their obsession to destroy one another only leads them closer together. When the forces of light and dark collide, where will their loyalties lie?

Genesis of Light by D.M. Cain - a novella in the Light and Shadow Chronicles

Wondering what the Light and Shadow Chronicles series is about?

The world in the Light and Shadow Chronicles is in a state of eternal conflict between two nations – The Children of Light and Brotherhood of Shadow. They have been at war for thousands of years, in a stalemate that is manipulated by forces greater than any of them realise. Both armies try to shift the scales in their favour by recruiting greater forces – angels, demons, dragons, armies of the underworld, and magical beings. The war continues to grow in scale until the entire world is dragged into the conflict and it can only end in a cataclysmic Armageddon.

Each of the stories in the series focuses on a significant character or group and their role within the battle. Every story is laying the foundations for something else, like building blocks for the epic finale. The books are written out of order – one story may feature a character in his adulthood, the next is set before he is born, the next after his death. Putting the order of events together is up to you.

This means that you may choose your own journey through the saga. If you feel connected to a certain character, you can follow that individual’s story first. And if you join the series after book 5 is released, there is no need to read books one through four first!

So where does the new book fit into the series?

Genesis of Light is a novella set towards the beginning of the timeline, which tells the origin story of the Children of Light. Another novella will be released later this year to explain the origin story of the Brotherhood of Shadow. This novella is entitled Origin of Shadow and is currently in editing.

Where would you go time and time again ben elton

If you had one chance to change history…

Where would you go? What would you do? Who would you kill?

I’m currently reading ‘Time and Time Again‘ by Ben Elton. I’m a huge fan of all of his books and I picked this one up recently, having heard great things about it. I haven’t finished it yet (but what I have read so far is absolutely brilliant and another example of Ben Elton’s excellent story telling), but I have been thoroughly fascinated by a concept within the book.

Similar to the idea in 11.22.63 by Stephen King, this book explores what would happen if you were to return to a significant event in history and change what happened. 11.22.63 focuses on the JFK assassination, and Time and Time Again turns its gaze to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and the start of World War I.

So I decided to ask around and see how people I know would answer these questions

I’ve been fascinated by all the responses! So I wanted to continue the concept. Tell me, where would you go in history and what would you do, see, change or experience?

Comment below or drop me an email at dmcain84@gmail.com. I can’t wait to hear your ideas!

Inspiration for The Phoenix Project

Inspiration for The Phoenix Project

The Phoenix Project is a story that is very close to my heart. I had the original idea in 2002 and it has slowly grown with the input of a variety of influences and inspiration.

Inspiration #1: Raven Kennedy:

Raven began as the villain, Vincent, in my first novel “Dead End” (an idea which never came to fruition). The plot didn’t work, but I adored his character so I kept him and developed him as the antagonist in the fantasy world of ‘The Light and Shadow Chronicles’ (You may have met him in A Chronicle of Chaos or The Shield of Soren).

I loved the character so much that I took the idea of him and developed it in another direction—into the dark and depressed Raven in my next novel, The Phoenix Project.

Having worked with Raven for so long, I am very emotionally attached to him. Even though he is fictional, I feel that he is a part of my heart and soul. Hence this tattoo:

D.M. Cain profile picture - Raven tattoo

Raven also features as a major character in The Light and Shadow Chronicles. I don’t think I will ever write a book that doesn’t have Raven in it in some way. He is my muse and my access to my creativity.
