Blog Tour Guest Post with LK Rigel & Giveaway

I'm very pleased to have LK Rigel stop by with a guest post while on her Bleeder book tour with The Bookish Snob Promotions. Bleeder is book three in LK's Apocalypto series and definitely sounds like a great read! Be sure to enter below for a chance to win an ecopy of Bleeder and check out how you can win a $100 gift certificate from Amazon or B&N!

LK Rigel lives in California with her cat, Coleridge. She was once a singing waitress, scored the independent science fantasy karate movie Lucid Dreams, and was a reporter for the Sacramento Rock 'N Roll News. Her BA is in humanities and religious studies. Her work has appeared in Literary Mama and Tattoo Highway. Her short story "Slurp" will appear in Anne Frasier's 2011 Halloween anthology Deadly Treats published by Nodin Press.

Thank you so much for hosting Bleeder today at P.S. I Love Books. I’m so glad to be here for a guest post.

One of the more mysterious characters in Bleeder is Father Jesse, a charismatic priest of Samael who Asherah calls a hybrid. I found the journal he kept during his asylum in Red City, and I thought I’d share a particularly interesting passage here today:

Red City. Sanguibahd. I thought it would be hell living here among these females, vessels of Asherah. Abominations. Instead, these bleeders and chalices are so ridiculous that my heart bursts with greater love for my god, Samael.

The girls are silly creatures who care for nothing but their dogs or what delightful new fruit or grain has arrived for their pleasure, gifts from some Concord city desperate to be noticed.

Those cities are fools to part with such precious resources. In the end, a chalice is bought by one thing only: Money. They all consider the coffees and honey candies their due.

Yes, the girls are silly. But the women are worse, entitled and vain. They walk around in public half naked, displaying the service marks tattooed on arms and thighs and breasts and backsides. There is no shame in any of them – and why should there be?

Their bodies are the instruments of their power. Of course they flaunt themselves.

I will allow that Ninshubur is different. Whenever l see her laughing eyes, my human side feels stronger. More alive.

[Here a sentence is scratched out. I can make out: wonder … would be like to be completely human.]

The proofs say that before her tragedy she was the most wanton of them all, but I’ve never seen her anything but modest. Well, except for her comment at the trial. Shocking! To suggest the seed of Garrick could be evil! I cannot account for it, unless it was her grief speaking.
I pains me that such a playful, light-hearted creature could feel so much pain.
She is modest and proper now but, like all the chalices, she abuses me regularly. At times I believe she mocks Samael himself. Her teasing is not humorous.

Perhaps she is the reason Samael sent me here. That’s it! I am here in this godforsaken Babylon to save Ninshubur from that demon Asherah, bring her over to my Samael’s love.

The page for that day ends here. But something tells me there will be more about Father Jesse and Nin in future stories.
