 Gregori’s last mission is to save Earth from the demons threatening to take control. He doesn’t care if he survives as long as he averts the impending apocalypse—until he meets Adelita, a human refugee, whose spirit and determination give him a renewed reason to fight. And live. He’s falling for her, despite the fact he’s told her nothing but lies and there can’t possibly be a future for them. Adelita can hardly believe the archangel Gregori, sent to save mankind, has lost his faith and his edge. After he saves her from a demon attack, she vows to help him recover both by any means necessary. But can she keep her own faith when she learns the truth about who and what Gregori really is?


What Kind of Apocalypse Was That Again? PART 1 

What happens in the days after the Chosen One fails to save the world? My latest novels, ANGELI (, is a sci-fi adventure romance about the apocalypse, sexy fake angels, the Earth woman who finds out they're fake but falls for one anyway, and a planet (ours!) in dire need of some saviors.

The type of apocalypse in ANGELI fluctuates. At first, it's a religious-type apocalypse. The alien soldiers whose mission is to stop the hordes of entities that like to eat all the life on planets often tell a planet's residents they're beings that mesh with that planet's cultural mythology. They don't want to warp the destiny of that planet any more than they must.

But then, when the heroine, Adelita, finds out the angeli are big ole fakers, the apocalypse is revealed as a sci-fi-based apocalypse where interdimensional entities who aren't affected by Earth's weapons are attempting to Hoover up all life on the Earth like nasty, blobby black vaccuum cleaners.

So what kinds of apocalypse novels did I scratch off my list when I got the urge to write about the end of days? Here's a few....

1) Clown apocalypse. After the clowns go bad, everyone who survives is forced to wear overly large shoes, red noses and rainbow wigs. They must travel in packs of twenty in very small cars and always be on the lookout for deadly assaults from boutonnières. The clown apocalypse is no circus utopia, friends, but it could be worse...I could have actually written about it!

2) Post-modern apocalypse. After the big information leak to end all information leaks (THANKS SNOWDEN), everyone suddenly believes reality isn't real but is instead dependent upon relativity and interpretation, leading to a huge upsurge in crime, dogs dressed like ballerinas, and people jumping off buildings because they think they can fly. Let's just say unemployment surged like never before.

I also decided not to write about the...

3) Polyester pants apocalypse. Because that already happened in the 70's, and nobody wants to read about that. It's too nightmarish.

If you'd like to see some more of my discarded apocalypse ideas, please follow along on my ANGELI ( blog tour! You can find a list of all the tour dates at:

 Jody Wallace grew up in the South in a very rural area. She went to school a long time because there was always something new to learn and ended up with a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing. Her resume includes college English instructor, technical documents editor, market analyst, web designer, and general all around pain in the butt. She currently lives in Tennessee with her family: 1 husband, 2 kids, 2 cats. One of her many alter egos is “The Grammar Wench”, which should give you an indication of her character. She is a terrible packrat and likes to amass vintage clothing, books, Asian-inspired kitchenware, gnomes, and other items that threaten to force her family out of the house. She also likes cats. A lot. Ms. Wallace’s approach to writing is to tell as many outlandish lies as she can get her readers to swallow. Her dream is to be moderately well-paid for this service. She is active in RWA and occasionally conducts writing workshops. Among topics she’s been known to cover are training sessions for contest judges (she coordinated her local RWA chapter contest for many years), point of view, dialogue punctuation and creativity enhancement.
