Guest Post: Author Julian Rosado-Machain (Tour Stop)
The other is the story of Thomas Byrne, a young man thrust into secrets he shouldn’t be aware of and dangers he shouldn’t face but, that he ultimately will, for he is a Cypher. The only one who can steer humanity’s future.
The ultimate conspiracy theory is that Magic is real. Kept in check by technology but, every five hundred years the balance can shift and, if it does, technology will fail and those creatures we’ve driven into myth will come back with a vengeance.
To protect the present, Guardians Incorporated needs to know the future, and to unlock the future they need a Cypher.
This is the first book of the Guardians Inc Series.

AND NOW FOR AN EXAMPLE OF HOW I BEAT WRITER’S BLOCK WHEN I’M ASKED FOR A GUEST POST AND HAVE AN ABSOLUTE MIND CRAMP OF NEAR BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.
Author of Guardians Inc.
Guardians Inc. Command and Control Center. (My office)
76th Region, Seat 39 17:34 hours CMT
The most pervasive sound on the most advanced observation and reconnaissance center of the world is the sound of keystrokes as thousands of techs, agents and observers, check, co-relate and assess threats to Guardians Inc.
Seat 39 is the most important because it is the one from which everything comes forth, every mission, every order and appointment for the corporation…. and… I AM SO BLOCKED!....
“Whatcha doing, Boss?” My assistant Tamara asks, as she leans from over my right shoulder.
“What do you mean?" I feign stupidity I have asked her to search for information that makes my brain slowly disgest itself and I really want to avoid that. “Don’t you like what I’m writing?” I deflect instead. I am the Boss and that should count for something; Even in an office of TWO people, there are hierarchies…
“What is it for?” she asks, twitching her eyes… She has read all that is on my screen and now she comes to realize that she is in the story herself.
“A guest post on how to break writer’s block…” I say as the keystrokes come fast and furious and the lines in the screen on the right side extend with each keystroke, as if pressing the keys make lines of text in the screen.
“Well, they do…” Tamara tells me interrupting my train of thought.
“They do what? “ I counter and she makes a face of distaste before going back to her desk. It doesn’t matter to me because I just broke the minimum Three hundred words of a guest post.
And I did it all just by writing about what was happening in my office and describing mundane things and events as if I was really writing.
I believe that this is the way to break through writer’s block…
JUST KEEP WRITING! Inspiration will catch up eventually.
Cheers and thank you for letting me be in your blog!
