St. Louis, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/28/2014 -- While finding that ‘special person’ can evoke all manner of emotions, any good person understands that hastily rushing for lust can have disastrous consequences. In a compelling new novel by Cassandra Willis, this concept is explored in a true fusion of faith and fiction.
‘The Day I Committed Spiritual Suicide’ examines wrong intentions, natural attraction and the fine balance that must be drawn when trying to satisfy one’s own desires and the desires of God.
‘The Day I Committed Spiritual Suicide’ is a true-story drama about a landscaper who preys on successful women with money.
The narrative takes place around a church setting where Rico is introduced to a lady who is in need of a landscaper. Prior to him meeting this woman, Rico has been married to three other women and is now sweeping another off her feet with hopes of making her wife number four.
Both Rico and this woman are Christian church going people who truly love the Lord but fall quickly into a lustful relationship that leads to total destruction.
“Relationships on every level need help,” says Willis, a graduate of Kaplan University. “But I fully understand that not everyone is committed to their faith, which is why I’ve mixed spiritual information with insights into how the human mind works and how people of all faiths think.”
Continuing, “The goal is to help readers avoid making bad decisions. When you know someone your entire life, one bad decision can be worked through. However, the early weeks and years of a relationship are vital proving grounds and such mistakes can cost the entire union. If I can stop just a few readers and help them focus back on their moral compass, I’ll see this book as a resounding success.”
Willis enjoyed the rapid process of getting her book published, and has high hopes for the future.
“Just days after coming up with a title for the book, I had two publishers fighting over who would take me under their wing. This is every author’s dream! I’d love to see this book turned into a movie or play and I have been told it has great potential for both. To see it being screened around the world with subtitles would be a dream come true. I know the narrative can touch the lives and hearts of millions, “she adds.
