Scenes from author’s head by V.S. Nelson


Why is Bagsu getting his Own Book?

It is said the author’s muses live inside there head. It’s a strange world to have conversations going on at all hours of the day and night upstairs especially with seven warriors actively seeking position over one another. This is merely, one of the more recent conversations going on with the Sekhmet’s Guardians in the remote regions on my mind.

Raziel: I don’t get it, why would she write an entire book from Bagsu’s POV. I don’t give a damn if he is Gabe’s brother or not, he’s a villain, not a hero like us.

Thomas: I don’t think it started out that way. As you know she has to get in to each of our heads in order to show the reader what is going on in our lives and in our world. Bagsu is an important figure in the war we fight…

Raziel: Yeah, but that doesn’t explain why he gets an entire book dedicated to his adventures while I’m still waiting to “tell “ my story.

Michael: Raziel, calm your shit! We all knew she and Gabe had two historicals planned for the series. It only makes sense she would include Bagsu in the line up. He has played such an important role in our success.

Raziel: Yeah, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. If it wasn’t for…

(Michael cuts his eyes at Raziel in a warning just as Gabe enters the room.)

Gabe: What’s going on in here? All of you should be out hitting the streets looking for Unab and the Legion Warriors who escaped our last conflict.

Michael: Oh, hi Gabe; we were just discussing V’s newest book.

Gabe: What about it?

(Gabe cuts his eyes and glares at the line up of warriors sitting in the room)

Michael: Seems Raziel is a bit pissed off at her for not doing his book first.

Gabe: Are we on that again? Seems he was pissed off over Lance’s book too.

Raziel: I didn’t say I was pissed at V; well not really, what I said was I didn’t understand why Bagsu gets a book in the first place. He’s a villain, not a hero, like us.

(Gabe pulls up a chair where is face to face with Raziel)

Gabe: Look Raziel, You and I both know, he wasn’t always like that. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be who I am.

Raziel: I know that. Hell, there was a time Bagsu and I were closer than you and him.

Thomas: He wasn’t always bad… Think back to our school days. While Gabe and I were frequenting the pubs, you and Bagsu were content to study for our exams. We use to sit around and make jokes about the two of you…

Raziel: I still don’t get it… Not just the book but why he had to go and join Set’s Legions…

Michael:  I think all of us know a woman can cause anyone of us to do a lot of things—including change our allegiance.

Gabe: Nefer didn’t cause him to do anything, Michael. It was circumstances beyond anyone’s control. Look I don’t’ even know what was the final turning point in his decision to follow Set here. For all I know Set could have tricked him.

In unison: Oh come on Gabe, get real!

Gabe: I guess it really doesn’t matter what happened centuries ago… but you know, standing there on the street when he brought our women back to us, I couldn’t help but see something in his eyes. Who know what the future will hold for us, for him, for the legion… I can only pray.

(Gabe puts his chair back and stands)

Gabe: Right now we both have a common enemy and that is Unab, so if all of you would like to do something creative; get your asses off those chairs, we have work to do.

(And with Gabe’s final words, the stood, grabbed their weaponry and headed out the door)

Now see what all the fuss was about.

Author Bio:


Being a Native American woman and a Scorpio, author V.S. Nelson has always had a fondness for history, mythology, the occult, and the unexplained events which have occurred on this world we call home. It was no wonder she found herself writing a paranormal series.

Raised on authors like H.G. Wells and Jules Verne and coming from a long line of oral storytellers, Ms. Nelson work has been defined as innovative and fresh. She will take you by the hand and lead you into the depths of her imagination as if you are sitting next to her on the couch one minute and alive within her fantasy world the next.

She has always enjoyed reading stories with strong relationships and happy-ever-after-endings and it is reflected in her work. Even her commercial fiction, Sins of a Man, the Memoirs of a Mafia Hit man, is layered with romantic elements. I’ve heard her say she is in love with love more than once and that too is echoed in her stories.

Landing in Arizona, after an exciting teaching career, which took her to the Middle East for several years, she lives in Arizona where she spends most of her time making love to her computer while writing, editing or researching, seven to ten hours a day. The days she’s not writing, you will find her with her critique partners, attending or presenting a workshop or at a RWA (Romance Writers of America) meeting. She’s extremely active in two RWA chapters in addition to her other associations.

She enjoys hearing from readers, fans and people with similar interests. They are more than welcome to contact her through her website

  1. Thanks so much for hanging out with us today, V.S.! It’s great to have you over!

  2. As you know, I love being on and reading L.L Thanks for having me again. Always, V

  3. My mother purchased a copy of Eternal Nights from V at last month’s Glendale Chocolate Affaire. She thought it would take her a year to read it.. Took less than a month and I finished reading it last week. I was impressed with the way she wove the stories of so many characters together and kept me spellbound while reading. I won’t mention which chapters, but a couple had me laughing so hard, my stomach still hurts! I’m going to keep an eye out for other books as soon as I get a bit more caught up on my TO READ pile.
    Way to Go V!

  4. Awesome discussion. Can’t wait to read it, V!

  5. A great post thank you. Loved the back & forth.

  6. Can’t wait to read it, Miss V!
