Interview with Cesar Nostradame
Today's guest is Cesar as he does a virtual book tour for Book of Prophecies.
Cesar has a very experienced background in the spiritual world. He was brought up in a Christian family, but branched out as he got older, seeking answers about the physical world around him, and the spiritual world around him.
In his mid-twenties, dramatic events occurred in his life which challenged his very existence, but he learned from the experiences and mostly learned how life is not just in our own hands.
Now, Cesar is a firm believer that everyone has their own path to walk in life, and part of that walk is all about the choices that you make. Some people choose a good life and some a wicked life, but most of us live the life in the middle, influenced by the world around us and our own upbringing, Cesar understands that life is simply not black and white.
Please tell us about your current release, Book of Prophecies.
It's a collection of brand new prophecies about things that are destined to happen to the world; Nostradamus style. In the book, events such as disasters and terrorist attacks and nuclear disasters are talked about in a very cryptic way. Each prophecy has two interpretations and there are also celtic-style-images which hold more secrets.
What inspired you to write this book?
It's hard to pin it down to one particular event that sent me on the journey to write this book, there have been many events throughout my life which, when all linked together, set me on this road to write the book, for example being able to tell people their future, and being able to speak in tongues. But essentially I feel like God told me to write this book to pass on the messages that are in it.
What exciting story are you working on next?
I have a number of manuscripts that I am working on, however, the one I am hoping to have published next is a YA fiction that approaches the possibilities of spirituality from a new perspective but mixes it with some truths and suspected truths from history. Essentially, Harry Potter mixed with the Da Vinci Code.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Well, to be honest it's very hard to see myself as a writer despite the fact that it's all I think about, but I have been doing other things in my life, too. I was once a musician and I was once an artist, so to put my identity as just a writer would be almost like selling myself short.
Do you write full-time? If so, what's your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
At the moment, I am spending most of my time with the promotion of this book and with doing research for my blog, but I am hoping to get back to my writing as soon as I can as I have manuscripts to finish off and other ideas which I want to start putting to paper. I'd love to write full time, and maybe one day I will be able to support myself financially with my writing.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
Writing late at night with plenty of coffee, I find it my most productive time to write, maybe it's because the world seems more peaceful and less distracting, but it causes havoc to my internal clock.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I think I wanted to be something special, like a superhero. I was always taller than other boys in my class so maybe I saw myself as being super strong just because of the shorter people around me, but I stopped growing at 6ft.
Anything additional you want to share with the readers?
Well yes, I'd like to share a bit about my Blog, basically since finishing this book I have been reading ancient documents ranging from a couple hundred years old to a few thousand years old, and I write an analysis about the documents, but I am especially searching for old prophecies and I am collecting a list and bio's of all prophets throughout time and I have discovered some very interesting things, for example, the fact that the theory of evolution was penned by the Egyptians thousands of years ago yet we all think Darwin came up with the notion!
Thank you for being here today, Cesar.
