Beauty is important. And while you see an increasing amount of people rejecting this concept I do not. It’s why you find beautiful women in my fiction.
Valiant Entertainment publishes a comic book series called, Faith, with the title character being a fat superheroine. Faith also is a vehicle for promoting Hillary Clinton for president. If a fat superheroine who stumps for Hillary Clinton is your thing, that’s fine. But I have different views—entirely different views.
For instance, I don’t think that beauty is completely subjective. Furthermore, I believe that it is an important part of life. Saying this defies modern convention. But it’s actually an ancient (and eternal) concept.
The Bible has an interesting passage in the Book of Numbers. Read all of Numbers 5 for the full context of what is happening but the sentence in verse 27 is of particular interest.
And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. (King James Version).
If you didn’t get that, the passage is saying that if she was guilty of infidelity, instead of having a trim stomach and full, lustrous legs, she’d get a gut and shriveled thighs. In short, she’d become ugly.
And no one wants an ugly woman.
There will be even more beautiful women in future Mortal Gods stories and my other original tales.
This isn’t to say there won’t be unattractive women in my fiction. It also doesn’t mean that only the good guys are good looking, and only the bad guys are ugly. But ugliness isn’t celebrated. Stories present beauty as something that is desirable.
Perspective on beauty is just one area where you’ll see a difference in my work compared with what you see elsewhere in modern entertainment.
