Donovan Scherer’s Moonfall Studio, 5031 Seventh Ave., is hosting Guest Author Day on Sunday.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., local authors Al Lytle and Toi Blasier, along with local artist Frank Lopez, will greet patrons and talk about their work.

Kenosha residents Lytle and Blasier are the authors of the “Gates of Divinity” book series.

The first two books in the planned four-book saga are “Gates of Destiny: The First Light” and “Gates of Divinity: Realms of Eternity.” was released on November 8

The books focus on a battle between angels and Lucifer.

“We’re developing the idea of ​​Lucifer being banished from heaven for a thousand years,” Lytle explained. “In our story, he is released after serving his thousand-year sentence and escapes before being thrown into the ring of fire.”

A small group of angels suspect something has gone wrong and set out to take Lucifer back. This mission forms the basis of the book series.

Both are new to the world of publishing, which – as any author knows – is an entirely different animal than writing a book.

“We learn as we go along,” Blasier said.

For Lytle, getting her first novel self-published “allows us to have more control over it. We see him as our child and want to nurture him and see him grow.

Blasier added that he “thought writing the books would be the hardest part of this project, but now we have to work to get people’s attention. I’m lucky to have the perfect partner for this part, because there’s no way I can do it as well as Al. He is the mastermind behind the marketing. Learn more about
