SARASOTA, Fla. (PRWEB) July 06, 2015
Something has gone horribly wrong in Purgatory. The unthinkable has happened in this new novel: something is preventing the dead from ascending. But the ferryman can't just stop bringing new arrivals over from the murky shores of death. Can Alice unclog a corrupt system before the streets are overrun by dead people? When unemployment in purgatory hits an all-time high, how can dead souls work toward their redemption? In this bureaucratic afterlife ruled by science, theology and utter confusion, strange deals and corruption are rampant.
Alice, a lowly administrator at the Office of Transition who hoped the sensible job would allow her to earn enough virtue to live in peace, must set things right. Haunted by top-level corruption, angelic sabotage and her own terrible secrets, she won’t have an easy time.
Forming a union to protest unfair rules is just the start. But when two drunken guardian angels accidentally open the doors to Hell, disaster is close at hand. Alice and her allies must race to find a way to make Purgatory work as it should before the unwitting dead are sucked down the wrong rabbit hole.
“Ascension Denied” features a fantastic tale of good vs. evil in a dramatic setting that could only come from the world of imagination, with what New York Times bestselling author Piers Anthony describes as “lovely descriptions along the way.”
Award-winning author Rob Griffith writes that the author takes readers “on an adventure that upends expectations about the afterlife and skewers religion, business, and the banal trappings of modern life.” Kirkus Reviews writes that Wilson has “great imagination” and “thought-provoking ideas.” This was seconded by the late New York Times bestselling author Scott Ciencin, who wrote that Wilson’s tale is a “wondrous and masterfully assured debut novel: fantastical, romantic and piercingly satirical.”
Author E.A.A. Wilson is an ordained minister and student of metaphysics. She grew up in Norway and studied criminology and journalism in England. After working for governmental agencies for a decade she left to explore her true passion: story-telling. Although this is her first book, Wilson has published short stories under the series title “The Foible” and publishes her second novel in October 2015 under the penname L.J. Oliver (Simon & Schuster). She and her husband, Matt, live in Sarasota, Fla., with their daughter, Olivia, and love to relax on Siesta Beach, Fla.
