” With fear continuously capitalized in society, Find Me in the Afterglow portrays humanities greatest fault: cowardice. Dictatorships, oligarchies, monarchies, even democracies use our greatest worries and our most flippant trepidations to preserve order. Set in a post dystopia where war, famine, and droughts have forced populations to the coasts to survive; Odell and her allies must discover their courage if they hope to survive a world born of fear. Uncover the lies that uphold a Devil’s bargain in this breathtaking novel. ” — Good Reads.

 

 

What inspired Kali Blackstorm to write Find Me in the Afterglow?

 

Find Kali Blackstorm in Afterglow Find Me in the Afterglow was inspired by fear. It originally started organically with a few main characters when I began to notice how anxious and fear-ridden society had become. My first draft followed only Odell and her views on fear. However, I felt it like it was missing something until I read about the Terror Management Theory.

This social and psychological theory states that everything we do is because of our fear of death. And that fear is not only why we keep increasing our medical capabilities, but also why we hate, why we war, and why we’re greedy. This theory suggests that even immoral actions can comfort our fear of death because we can think that we’ll live on symbolically.

I did not take the Terror Management approach on fear; I do not think our trepidations are solely inspired by death. But I do believe, and I do argue in Find Me in the Afterglow that most, if not all, of our immoral and amoral actions, is inspired by some form of fear. Whether it be a fear of abandonment, fear of being destitute, or fear of being unknown, to name a few; we can, and we do inadvertently hurt others. Likewise having fears such as being selfish, being careless, or being ignorant can harm the individual, or worst yet, be used to abuse oneself.

Find Me in the Afterglow was inspired by breaking down fear into it’s purest forms by understanding the different types, different causes, and different responses to it. And concluding that though some may overcome fear, too many of us are consumed by it, and worst, some love the benefits that fear produces. And fear can be a useful tool for people who are willing to use it.

I wanted to create a story that anyone could understand; I didn’t want to use a bunch of jargon that philosophers or theorists use. I wanted to build a world that you could walk into and understand how fear affects us all in real life, from the fear we can control, to the fear we abuse, to the fear that is out of our control due to conditions like anxiety.

This story started as a response to fear, but the final product equally was inspired by courage. It is a story that delves into the darkest parts of humanity, and at the same time, tells a narrative about shedding trepidation and finding yourself after surviving fear. Find Me in the Afterglow tells the stories of many individuals who get to choose whether or not their fear will consume them or if they will overcome it. It’s a story that urges the reader to find an answer to fear. Can we cure it? Is fear conquerable? And even if it isn’t, what is the cost of abandoning the fight?
