Already well on her way into the first draft, Gail expects to finish at the end of 2017 or 2018. Pray for her as she writes. She thinks this will be her best work yet and hopes to add to the ranks of great literature with this work.
THE THEME OF THE BOOK, where the characters attempt to act out their love life elevated. Each character has their own theory of what constitutes a proper elevated love life: Both God and Satan use the strategy of elevation, but Satan uses it in temptation, and the effect is quite different. When the devil elevates you to a certain place, he causes you to fasten your idea of what holiness is far beyond what flesh and blood could ever bear or achieve. Your life becomes a spiritual acrobatic performance high atop a steeple. You cling to it, trying to maintain your balance and daring not to move. But when God elevates you by His grace into heavenly places, you find a vast plateau where you can move about with ease.
Jesus has told Gail to structure Lusts & Acclaim after Pride & Prejudice. Therefore, Gail has been studying both the book and movie versions of Pride & Prejudice to prepare for this novel. Pride & Prejudice is a novel of manners that emphasizes social customs, manners, conventions and mores of a definite social class. Such novels are always realistic, and sometimes they are satiric and comic, as in Jane Austen’s work. Austen’s work, written primarily in unlimited point of view, concentrated on character and personality, with an emphasis on the tensions between her heroines and their society. Also, Pride & Prejudice was written as a contemporary/mainstream romance in Jane Austen’s time. Therefore, Lusts & Acclaim will be a romance novel of manners, set in contemporary period and locale, though the scenes with the Vatican, will make some scenes exotic. The story has a bit of the paranormal in it, because Gail is exposing Jesuit science, and there is skepticism over the existence of this science, but Gail will present it as fact. She will have to explain it, because many readers are unfamiliar with it, forcing Gail to use principles of fantasy writing for this book. However, she wants the voice of the novel to be literary, like Jane Austen.
Gail’s first two memoirs she structured as non-fiction. But for her next books, she is returning to fiction writing format, as she feels it gives her the structure needed to write a compelling story about her life and those who have affected her. She handles this by admitting that the novel is mostly non-fiction, but that she has inserted some fiction elements into the story to allow deeper penetration into all the characters. In regard to defamation lawsuits, she ensures that all elements of the novel are truthful, even those sections where she speculates on certain events, with a focus (as a novelist) on emotional truth. She admits that most writers could not get away with this much exposure in their writings, but thanks her men, who are always battling for her and her writings in court.
Any person of destiny must have their life and marriage controlled by those in power. So begins the opening to Lusts & Acclaim, a coming-of-age memoir about how the Catholic Church rewrote history and transformed the world’s morals in sex, love and marriage, to bring down the Catherine the Great and King David baby born in 1957. The leader of the Catholic Church, Antichrist Zack Knight, and Gail’s soulmate Star Trek: The Next Generation star Brent Spiner, come to terms with their own hearts while the Catholic Church’s Jesuit Order attempts to bring down the woman with the heart of God. This is a must-read memoir novel about Gail Chord Schuler and Antichrist Zack Knight for anybody who wants to understand what is driving the events that shape the end-times prophecies depicted in the Bible books of Daniel and Revelation. Other important characters are Pope John Paul II, Loree McBride, Satan, Jesus Christ, and Angelina Ballerina.
It appears God orchestrated the literature of the world, using Jane Austen to create Pride and Prejudice to give Gail Chord Schuler the model she uses for her book Lusts & Acclaim. Looks like this book will put Gail in the ranks of Nobel Laureates in Literature. Why does Gail self-publish? It’s because she doesn’t want any constraints over how she writes a book. Jesuits control the publishing industry.
