From Night On : The Veil
Nathaniel is a broken man after a trauma left him with crippling PTSD. For years, he had been writing a novel where he connected with the main character, believing that they were one and the same person stretched over multiple realities. Unfortunately, his connection to his doppelganger suffered from the battles with PTSD, depression, and anxiety. Every day is a struggle for him, but the gears of fate could not wait any longer.After giving into the last ounce of hope offered to him, Nathaniel begins a search for a woman he saw in a dream only to then find himself in the cross-hairs of a crazed carnival cult whose leader sees Nathaniel as the bringer of the Apocalypses. The good news is that he's not as crazy as he thought: both the woman and his doppelganger exist. The bad new is that, in a twist of fate, woman's mother is the leader of the cult.Learning that there are greater talents lurking in the corners of the world, Nathaniel is dragged across the globe to find who he truly is and make the decision: should the world as we know it end or should he fight to keep the balance. Are the villains the heroes for the greater good, or are the heroes the ones to condemn mankind? With everyone discovering their inner strengths, each one must also face their greatest weaknesses and heal their deepest scars before greatness can be within their grasp.This is a journey of trauma and realization through a fantastic story that ventures between modern struggles, ancient gods, and distant cultures, both present and forgotten. The main character is an example of the hardships of PTSD and how it can effect our daily lives, but he also stands as a call to ANYONE suffering from the "silent wound": you are not alone. Sometimes, your story is so horrific that you fear the consequences of telling it to anyone. I hope this work will inspire more people to speak the truth regardless of how others might take it. Often, the only cure is time, but it takes the truth to get that clock ticking.
