Part II: The Making of The Vital Sacrifice – Creating a Mythical Secret Society

ATLANTA – Written by M.L. Childs, Paranormal Romance Author, Screenwriter, Copywriter and Dramatic Historian

As you may recall from my previous blog topic, Part I: The Making of The Vital Sacrifice – The Invisible Race of Djinn, I developed my main character, Ali, as a Djinn.  After developing his character and my female character who becomes his lover, I had a big question mark looming over my story: “Why should audiences care about these two people’s relationship?”  Over the years of learning writing and screenwriting, I discovered that if there is no conflict, there is no story.  I knew that I had my two main characters, but now was the time to add conflict to their lives — and lots of it.

I formed the overarching conflict in my novel developing Ali’s character.  As you know by reading or from my previous post, Ali is a paranormal creature but I had to develop a world around him that would make him off limits to my female character, Teresa.  I did this by creating a Order of Djinns that he belongs to who play by specific rules that they themselves created in order to avoid conflict with humans.  One major no-no is for them is not to have too much involvement with humans and settling down into relationships with women is strictly forbidden, not just because of the rules of the Order but also because these men never age.  Thus, too much involvement with anyone over a period of time will cause people to wonder why they never age.  This is why they must live their lives in secrecy.

I also created the Order because I wanted to explore the topic of secret societies.  My research in this area over the years intrigued me and therefore, I wanted my characters to formulate their own secret society.  I studied about secret societies but much of the information that I discovered seemed originate with King Solomon.  His magical powers seem to be the cornerstone of all secret societies.  I delved into the Biblical and Koranic interpretations of King Solomon and other books about Solomon’s magic in order to build my secret mythical society of genie men.
