Gregori’s last mission is to save Earth from the demons threatening to take control. He doesn’t care if he survives as long as he averts the impending apocalypse—until he meets Adelita, a human refugee, whose spirit and determination give him a renewed reason to fight. And live. He’s falling for her, despite the fact he’s told her nothing but lies and there can’t possibly be a future for them.
Adelita can hardly believe the archangel Gregori, sent to save mankind, has lost his faith and his edge. After he saves her from a demon attack, she vows to help him recover both by any means necessary. But can she keep her own faith when she learns the truth about who and what Gregori really is?
What Kind of Apocalypse Was That Again? PART 2
What happens in the days after the Chosen One fails to save the world? My latest novels, ANGELI (http://amzn.to/1ffyRPL), is a sci-fi adventure romance about the apocalypse, sexy fake angels, the Earth woman who finds out they’re fake but falls for one anyway, and a planet (ours!) in dire need of some saviors.
The type of apocalypse in ANGELI fluctuates. At first, it’s a religious-type apocalypse. The alien soldiers whose mission is to stop the hordes of entities that like to eat all the life on planets often tell a planet’s residents they’re beings that mesh with that planet’s cultural mythology. They don’t want to warp the destiny of that planet any more than they must.
But then, when the heroine, Adelita, finds out the angeli are big ole fakers, the apocalypse is revealed as a sci-fi-based apocalypse where interdimensional entities who aren’t affected by Earth’s weapons are attempting to Hoover up all life on the Earth like nasty, blobby black vaccuum cleaners.
So what kinds of apocalypse novels did I scratch off my list when I got the urge to write about the end of days? I covered several of them on my blog tour stop here (insert link), so here are a few more apocalypses you won’t be reading about from me. If you’re lucky.
4) Kung Fu apocalypse. After the kung fu movie with the secret subliminal suggestions is released and viewed by nearly everyone in the world, all residents start speaking with their lips moving one way while the sound comes out a couple seconds later. This causes mass confusion and a communication breakdown. People also develop a deadly tendency to break into street fights while barefoot. Jackie Chan becomes World Dictator, aided by his second in command Chuck Norris.
5) Sharktoctopocalypse. I decided not to write this one because nobody can pronounce it, but it would have had something to do with floods, painfully bad dialogue, rubber suits, and eight armed monsters with big teeth.
Oh, and a really horrible one is the….
6) Allen apocalypse. Often misspelled as “alien” apocalypse, even though every Allen knows there’s no such thing as aliens, this horrible event occurs because everyone forgets who they are due to a mind-altering comet or something, I don’t know, but anyway, when they come to, they all think their name is Allen. This causes mass confusion, wars, fisticuffs, jealousy, love triangles with Allen, Allen and Allen, battles with wrenches (Allen wrenches of course), the rise and fall of Allen, TX, as a global power, and the destruction of the internet. Also, everyone only wants to wear polyester pants.

ABOUT JODY WALLACE
Jody Wallace grew up in the South in a very rural area. She went to school a long time because there was always something new to learn and ended up with a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing. Her resume includes college English instructor, technical documents editor, market analyst, web designer, and general all around pain in the butt. She currently lives in Tennessee with her family: 1 husband, 2 kids, 2 cats. One of her many alter egos is “The Grammar Wench”, which should give you an indication of her character. She is a terrible packrat and likes to amass vintage clothing, books, Asian-inspired kitchenware, gnomes, and other items that threaten to force her family out of the house. She also likes cats. A lot.
Ms. Wallace’s approach to writing is to tell as many outlandish lies as she can get her readers to swallow. Her dream is to be moderately well-paid for this service. She is active in RWA and occasionally conducts writing workshops. Among topics she’s been known to cover are training sessions for contest judges (she coordinated her local RWA chapter contest for many years), point of view, dialogue punctuation and creativity enhancement.
