The old woman wants something, and she won’t leave until she gets it.
An unusually vibrant blob nudged its way into the periphery of Cayleth’s gaze. The elder’s heart came to an abrupt halt as she realized that a gray-haired woman clothed in scarlet had entered the clearing. Loitering at a hundred or so yards from the tree line, the elderly stranger assessed the assembled crowd. Her lips curled upwards disquietingly as she lifted her chin and gave entrance to menace—which danced maniacally upon her face. Cayleth felt her stomach churn violently. She watched the stranger expose her neck and run her fingers from her forehead to the collar of her gown. The ruby gloves donned by the old woman weren’t gloves at all. Had they been, her caresses wouldn’t have left her looking like one just bathed in a pool of gore. Continue reading
Welcome to the Blog Tour for Sometimes The Darkness. Here Will Campbell explains the motivation behind his debut novel. Over to you, Will…
There were several factors that led to the writing of this novel. One was my passion for current events, specifically in Africa, a continent in which I’ve always had a keen interest. The other is my fascination with the role fate plays in our lives.
I began writing the novel Sometimes the Darkness in 2005. At that time, the war in Darfur, which began in 2003, was receiving constant coverage by many of the news outlets at that time. It is important to remember that there were significantly less news groups in operation then as now. Even so, the war and the atrocities associated with it (as there is with every war) received much coverage, enough to draw my interest and study.
The causes of this conflict were numerous. Economics, tribalism, territorial issues, ethic/religious issues and disputes all contributed to the start and continuation of that conflict in this western region of Sudan. Sudan, including South Sudan, formed in 2011, is the largest country on the continent. It is, by comparison, ten times larger than the United Kingdom. Continue reading
