How far must an angel fall to find his destiny?

Having witnessed one too many senseless deaths, Nikolai, a disillusioned Reaper 3rdClass, resigns his commission with the Angel Forces after a tedious century of gathering souls.

Immediately, another division recruits him with the promise of a more rewarding career, and issues his initial assignments: To bring down a few very dangerous threats to the human race.  In the process, Nikolai falls in love with one of his targets—Hope Matheson, a woman who will lead thousands astray. 
Caught between conflicting agendas, Nikolai chooses to “fall” from his celestial state and become mortal in order to circumvent angel law and be with her.  But for angels and humans alike, things are not always as they appear.  Still a target, the threat against Hope’s life intensifies.

Now, in order to save her, Nikolai must rally the last remnants of his failing supernatural abilities to prevent her assassination, as well as the destruction of an entire city by a nuclear terrorist strike.

But his time and power are running out…

Terminus is a perspective-altering saga that delves into ageless themes of redemption, destiny, and the eternal power of love.

The Story Behind Terminus by Joshua Graham

The inspiration for Terminus actually came from ideas floating around my head over the years, having read C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, and Max Lucado’s Fearless.  The concept of a spiritual dimension in which angels and demons operate has always fascinated me, but where it really hits home is where that dimension intersects and interacts with the physical dimension in which we humans live. 

Screwtape shows us how a great deal of what we struggle with is simply distraction—smoke and mirrors, so to speak—not necessarily the horrific manifestations that you find in The Exorcist. One of the most effective weapons demons use is to make a human believe they don’t exist.

In Fearless we are encouraged to imagine a life free of the fear of death.  One of its chapters deals with living free of the fear of death.  Everyone fears death to some degree, but the key to living a life unafraid, and facing death without trepidation is having an eternal hope.   Eternity is a concept about which I frequently write.  Perhaps all the loss I’ve experienced over the past decade prompted me to think, study, and pray deeply about the subject. 

In any case, as I began to conceive the story of TERMINUS, I felt it not important not only to write a thriller filled with action, high-stakes, and a romance, but to express some perspectives on the subject of spiritual warfare, angels, demons, heaven, and eternity in metaphorical terms as well.

My hope is that readers will enjoy TERMINUS as a thriller, and also find some meaning and hope in its theme as well.  And, I would love it if everyone would sign up for my rare-to-occasional newsletter here:  www.Joshua-Graham.com/newsletter .  I’ll be giving heads up on new releases, exclusive content, giveaways and contests, and other cool ideas.  I don’t do too many newsletters because I’m way too busy writing books, but I will try to make it fun and engaging.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
