Author Lynda Brown's Invisible Enemies





I am honored to host author Lynda D. Brown as she shares with us a little about her book Invisible Enemies. Lynda will also be giving away a free copy of the book to one of our readers so please post a comment to enter the giveaway.



About the Author
Lynda D. Brown lives in St. Louis MO. She has one married son and a beautiful grandson. This is her second book, her first book, Once I Was Lost, was released in April of 2006, and she immediately began working on Invisible Enemies, which took four years to complete. Lynda has been researching Spiritual Warfare for the last six years, and in these last days, she wants to make sure that God's people do not perish due to lack of knowledge. (Hosea 4:6)

As an avid science fiction fan and a lover of all things supernatural, author Lynda D. Brown’s supernatural thriller series, Invisible Enemies is creating quite a buzz in the independent publishing field. Book one, Invisible Enemies was published in 2010 and became an immediate hit in the authors local library, and when book two, Seed of Satan: Leah’s Story, Book Two of the Invisible Enemies Series, arrived in January 2012, all copies were immediately checked out by fans that eagerly waited over a year for the sequel.

Banned from her beloved church, Abby's hanging out with a new crew, drinking and getting high. When she runs into her sister's ex-boyfriend, they begin dating and soon she's pregnant and marries Randy Nelson. When the marriage turns sour, due to Randy's infidelities, Abby’s heart grows cold. By chance, she runs into a music producer who hears her singing, and overnight she becomes an R&B sensation. Abby plots to take her twins and leave her husband.

5 Minutes, 5 Questions with… Lynda D. Brown, author of Invisible Enemies: Book One of the Invisible Enemies Series

By Joey Pinkney on December 15, 2011

Lynda D. Brown, author of Invisible Enemies Book One of the Invisible Enemies Series
(Spoken Word Press)

Invisible Enemiesis a supernatural thriller that deals with the occult and religion. The story centers around two sisters, Candace and Abby Harris. Inspired by the Book of Job, Invisible Enemies reminds us that no matter what life throws our way, God is still in control!
When God chooses Abby Harris as a pawn in his wager against Satan, poor Abby’s life is turned upside down. Banned from her beloved church, Abby’s hanging out with a new crew, drinking and getting high. When she runs into her sister’s ex-boyfriend, they begin dating. Soon, she’s pregnant and marries Randy Nelson. When the marriage turns sour, due to Randy’s infidelities, Abby’s heart grows cold.
By chance, she runs into a music producer who overhears her singing, and overnight Abby becomes an R&B sensation! Financially set, Abby plots to take the twins and leave her husband. When Randy finds out, he teams up with his ex, Abby’s vengeful sister Candace, to destroy his wife.

Where did you get the inspiration to write Invisible Enemies Book One of the Invisible Enemies Series?

Lynda D. Brown:I was really into the whole New Age movement when it started in the ‘70’s. I started off innocently enough by reading my daily horoscope in the newspaper. That grew into an obsession with astrology.
By the time I was 25, I had a thriving side business creating horoscope charts for clients, doing tarot card readings, and clients booking me to do psychic parties. I had a nice size clientele.

In 2003, a co-worker overhead me talking about a reading I had conducted earlier that day, and she asked me if I realized I was practicing witchcraft. I scoffed at her and told her that I wasn’t practicing black magic, but white magic! The next day, this same co-worker bought me two books; He Came to Set the Captives Free by Rebecca Brown and Pigs in a Parlor, by Ida and Frank Hammond. Both books dealt with spiritual warfare, and showed me biblical text about the dangers of witchcraft and fortune-telling.

I grew up as a Christian and never heard about spiritual warfare in my Baptist church. When I finished the books, I immediately threw my cards away and promised God that I would share this new-found knowledge with others in the form of a fictional book series. That’s how Invisible Enemies was born.

What sets Invisible Enemies Book One of the Invisible Enemies Series apart from other books in the same genre?

LDB: My books have been described as either supernatural thriller or speculative fiction due to the angelic and demonic characters. Diversity is another factor with my series. I have African-Americans, Caucasians, Latinos, Wiccan’s and Lesbians as main characters. Fans of Christian fiction really like my work because it’s not often they read about a church secretary whose really a shape shifting demon that manifests during a church meeting!

As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to Invisible Enemies Book One of the Invisible Enemies Series getting out to the public?

LDB: Social media! I have a Facebook Fan Page for Invisible Enemies. I have a Twitter account where I have automatic tweets set up to promote my books. I am involved with the writing groups on LinkedIn, where many first time authors or self published authors were experiencing difficulties promoting their books. With that need in mind, I started Author Chat, a blogtalkradio show, where I interview authors about their books. I also set up a sister website for authors to join, called http://www.authorchat.info.

As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish Invisible Enemies Book One of the Invisible Enemies Series?

LDB: It took me about two years and eleven months to finish Invisible Enemies. I started out writing a couple of chapters a day, and then I’d go back and proofread what I had written. It really dragged out the process.
Luckily, I ran into a literary agent who told me to stop proofreading and just write the book. I took his advice and finished the book. The sequel, Seed of Satan: Leah’s Story, only took eight months to finish because I took the literary agent’s advice.

What’s next for Lynda D. Brown?

LDB: I’m currently working on book three of the series. My Author Chat radio show is currently booking authors for May-December 2012, and I’m also planning to publish a short story book under the Spoken Word Press label in 2012.
