C. Michael Bennis to sign books
at Prairie Years Saturday

[May 31, 2012] C. Michael Bennis will be back in town this weekend for a book signing at Prairie Years in downtown Lincoln.

Bennis will be introducing his latest novel, “Signs of Destiny.” The book signing will take place on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Prairie Years is located at 121 N. Kickapoo St. “Signs of Destiny” by C. Michael Bennis is a paranormal romance, where destiny shapes life’s direction and meaning. The narrative blends life and love, death and destiny.

Dying is what changed Rafael Valverde’s life. Coming back from the dead and lying comatose for six weeks altered his perceptions. Before he was a chameleon masquerading as a businessman. Now he is weakened and confused as he pursues his mother’s genetic lineage of talented artists.

Enter Alison Amavis, the sylphlike young woman Rafael first saw in a state of unconsciousness. Her sea-green eyes conceal a prophesied demise that a spiritualist in Liverpool begrudgingly revealed to 17-year-old Alison: She will die a horrible death in her 24th year. However, before death she will know a love of unfathomable magnitude. It will be the sensation of truly coming home after forever longing to be there. Rafael, from pre-Castro Cuba, is that prophesied love.

“I think my readers will enjoy the narrative of love in destiny’s grasp, where human willpower is able to find romance and happiness despite ominous forces beyond their control,” Bennis says.
