“Never stop remembering your beloved ones that passed away,” says Arkes. “Every individual has the power to choose the inner voice they would like to hear.”

In their new novelBy Sheer Accident” (published by AuthorHouse), authors Jos Arkes and Gerard Fidom explore events from their pasts in a story that combines existential themes with elements of suspense, mystery and romance.

“By Sheer Accident” is the story of two friends who, while traveling to California, survive a devastating plane crash. Out of the 22 people on board 16 are killed. A young woman who is indirectly involved in the accident starts following the survivors, driven by subconscious motivations. Twenty years later, it all unfolds in a thrilling vision on the origins of mankind, society and humanity’s greatest threat.

Many of the events in “By Sheer Accident” are inspired by true stories from Arkes and Fidom’s lives, including the plane crash. However, they believe readers will find more than just suspense and thrills in their novel. “The story contains many existential questions that today’s society struggles with,” says Arkes. “It asks questions like, ‘are some of the life-determining events that seem to happen by accident trying to tell us something?”

Arkes and Fidom hope their story inspires readers. “Never stop remembering your beloved ones that passed away,” says Arkes. “Every individual has the power to choose the inner voice they would like to hear.”
