Introducing Flickering Lights

Greetings, my dear followers!

I have decided to give you more information about Flickering Lights.

I’ve labored over a blurb for days (and received much needed help from J. L. Mbewe).  I’ve found character pictures.  I drew a map, and then my awesome cousin, Joshua Valentine, made it look all fantastic and professional.  Lastly, I’m including my key verse for this series! (A note to those who are opening this in your  inbox: be sure to load the images or else this post will be pretty short and bland.)

All of this information will go up on the new, fancy dancy Flickering Lights page next week.


In a world of darkness, the people of Murk survive by the light of the darkfish and wonder what happened to the light. Marcus is just your average information formatter at an oxygenation research facility on Murk, and he makes sure to stay out of trouble. Marcus doesn’t mess with terrorists. He doesn’t act erratically. And he most certainly doesn’t associate with beacons, people whose skin glows, but even they are dimmer than his darkfish.

Then Marcus comes across two convicts on parole who shine brighter than anyone he’s ever seen, but a terrorist attack leaves one dead and the other wounded. When the surviving beacon appears on his doorstep, Marcus is pulled into a perilous journey that could end his life or change it. Or both.

Characters and stuff:


This dude here is Marcus.


This guy here is Hermes.


This girl here is Penelope.








These are darkfish, and they glow in the dark. (Don’t ask me why they are called “darkfish” when they glow because I don’t know.) The Murkese put these genetically modified fish in lanterns, using them to light their everyday life.


These are nocturnals.  They are glasses (or goggles, if you’re into goggles) that help the Murkese see in the dark.

Key Verse:

Matthew 5:14-16

You are the light of the world.  A city set on hill cannot be hidden.

Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.

In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father Who is in heaven.
