Born into opulent wealth, Sharon and Annie were the only children of Edna
and Warren Karce and the girls were the pride and joy of their parents. The
fraternal twins had accomplished studying for their degrees and eagerly
looked forward to their once in a lifetime overseas trip to Europe. The
sisters love for one another was obvious to the bystander but a sinister
undercurrent of malicious feelings dwelled profoundly beneath their facade
of shared contentment. Penetrating treachery deceit and wickedness developed
intensely between them and once abroad, with their over protective parents
absent, their relationship advances into the finest possible nightmare
changing their lives forever. How will the highly famed socialite dynasty
survive the unforseen scandalous and degrading impacts created by the once
idolized and respected twin daughter’s of the Karce Empire?

Publisher: Page Publishing
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
With war ravaging their planets and destroying their once-peaceful existence, they fled their homes in search of a new beginning.
Arriving on earth over ten thousand years ago, they brought with them the secret science of immortality, the wisdom of once living in perfect harmony, and the knowledge needed to recreate a utopia like the one they had just destroyed. What they didn’t expect was to arrive on a planet that was far direr than the one they had just left and that it would be thousands of years before earth would be ready for the knowledge they brought with them, if ever at all.
In 2011, Steven Di Carlo, unknowingly living his ninth existence as an executioner, was about to be awakened to his purpose on earth by remembering his many past lives. Along with his prophets Michael and Samuel, they would continue their enormous task of protecting the Book of Wisdom known as the KHoKeM, the very science of an everlasting life. Rumors of its existence had some referring to the KHoKeM as the Holy Grail while others searched in vain for the ever-elusive fountain of youth. December 12, 2012, feared as the day of the apocalypse, was in fact be the date targeted for the retrieval of the KHoKeM. September 9, 2019, would be the day its secrets are to be revealed to the human race. Will the people of earth be ready for this knowledge? Will the prophets and the executioner decide that humanity is still too barbaric and choose to leave the science hidden for another thousand years, or will the path and all its wisdom forever be destroyed by the evil inside us all? The journey begins with book 1 of this new trilogy by Frank Franco.
Keep an eye for Book Two in December 2019

EXCERPT

BEFORE THEIR ARRIVAL on Earth and before the destruction of their worlds, their lives could only be described as extraordinary. They were many civilizations all living and thriving in a system of planets that were connected by peace, harmony, and common respect, but mostly, they were connected by singular thought. For millions of years, these different cultures, as diverse as they were, prospered from the sharing of knowledge and resources and from mutual understanding. Specific laws were not needed as crime was nonexistent. There were no borders as freedom of travel was encouraged and the allegiance to one another was cultivated. 

It was an exhilarating existence filled with the delights of adventure and camaraderie, a life that was virtually everlasting. An entity could only cease to exist if it itself so chose. Death by accident or age meant a rebirth of a new life with all the excitement of a once-again youthful existence, and with time, the full knowledge of its previous lives would return, therefore maintaining the wisdom learned throughout its past adventures. 

This knowledge was the key to the harmony of the different cultures, but unfortunately, that knowledge became the catalyst for their demise. In this time before the collapse of their beliefs and customs, the seeds of greed began to take root; with each rebirth, past possessions became more coveted, desire for immediate standing became more urgent, greed had invaded their minds, and disrespect for one another had destroyed their harmony.

About the Author

 photo The Prophets and the Executioner Author - Frank Franco_zpszcp8ngs3.jpg

Frank Franco is a 63-year-old proud father of two wonderful children; the grandfather of five amazing grand children aged 2 to 11 and has been married to his wife Lina, for the past 42 years.

Born in Amato, Italy in 1955, he immigrated to Vancouver Canada at the age of 4 and has lived there ever since.
Although Frank is not an accomplished writer, I would definitely call him an accomplished story teller. He began writing The Prophets and the Executioner in 2008, mostly writing on Saturday mornings and while on vacations. Writing a novel was a bucket list item he always dreamed of completing and after numerous re-writes, and the story taking control of the writer, one novel turned in to three and thus a trilogy was created and the adventures of Steven DiCarlo (The Executioner) and Samuel Stewart (his Prophet) took him on quite an amazing ride.
This trilogy, The Prophets and the Executioner is lightly based on the author’s beliefs and personal experiences of something existing beyond this world. A somewhat mystical connection guiding us through life and then welcoming us home when we die. Although purely fiction, The Prophets and the Executioner explores why we are here, where we came from and what comes next.
With no formal education as a writer, the intention was to complete the novel, print a few copies and hand them out to family and friends and cross that one off the bucket list. But coming from a newspaper background and having writers and editors as friends, he was encouraged by them to pursue publishing his story. Now that book one and two are complete and book three has been started, he thought, why not!

When the Angels attack, there’s NO REST FOR THE WICKED.

Father Montgomery, an elderly priest with a secret past, begins to investigate after his parishioners come under attack, and with the help of Jones, a young businessman with an estranged child, Montgomery begins to track down the origin of the Angels.

Eyes Like Lighthouses When the Boats Come Home(poetry)

Eyes Like Lighthouses is Dane Cobain’s first book of poetry, distilled from the sweat of a thousand memorised performances in this reality and others. It’s not for the faint-hearted.

“I’ve never seen anyone do a stream of consciousness piece as talented as that. Very impressed.” – Mark Allard-Will, author of Saskatch-A-Man and co-founder of Cuckoo’s Nest Press

 


Former.ly: The Rise and Fall of a Social Network
(literary fiction)

When Dan Roberts starts his new job at Former.ly, he has no idea what he’s getting into. The site deals in death – its users share their innermost thoughts, which are stored privately until they die. Then, their posts are shared with the world, often with unexpected consequences.

But something strange is going on, and the site’s two erratic founders share a dark secret. A secret that people are willing to kill for.

Social Paranoia: How Consumers and Brands Can Stay Safe in a Connected World
(non-fiction)

Social Paranoia: How Consumers and Brands Can Stay Safe in a Connected World is the true story of how sometimes the updates that you post come back to haunt you. Filled with real case studies and practical advice, it’s a guidebook for everyone who has an online presence from consumers to massive corporations.

Sometimes, people really are out to get you. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
