Title: Embracing a New Identity: The Story Behind My Pen Name, Nathaniel Theos
Greetings, dear readers and fellow seekers of wisdom and enlightenment. It’s a pleasure to share a bit of my journey with you, especially when it involves a significant decision I’ve made in my writing career. As L. Neil Thrussell, a four-time bestselling author in the realm of spiritual fiction, I’ve had the privilege of sharing my insights, stories, and philosophy with you. However, I’m here to shed light on why my upcoming book, “An Unregistered Male,” is not bearing my familiar name, but instead, the pseudonym “Nathaniel Theos.”
Preserving a Literary Legacy
First and foremost, I want to express my deep appreciation for your support and the connections we’ve forged through my previous works. These books have been a journey of heart and soul, aligned with the principles of the Shin Dao Philosophy. They’ve explored life’s meaning, love, and self-improvement. In your eyes, L. Neil Thrussell has come to represent a source of inspiration and wisdom, and I cherish that deeply.
A Departure into Uncharted Territories
As an author, I’ve always felt a calling to explore different genres and themes. “Unregistered Male” ventures into a realm that might be unfamiliar to you, and it’s a divergence from my typical spiritual fiction. I’ve chosen to use a pseudonym for this book, not to distance myself from my cherished readers, but rather to provide clarity and maintain the integrity of the brand we’ve built together.
The Birth of Nathaniel Theos
Now, let me introduce you to the name that will grace the cover of “An Unregistered Male”: Nathaniel Theos. This pseudonym has a significant meaning that aligns with my vision for this project. “Nathaniel” is of Hebrew origin and translates to “gift of God.” In choosing this name, I’m acknowledging the divine inspiration and creative energy that drives my writing. I see this new book as a gift to you, my readers, offering something fresh and exciting without the expectations tied to my known name.
The second part of the pseudonym, “Theos,” is derived from the Greek word for “God.” This surname ties back to the spiritual themes I hold dear, even in this different genre. It signifies that at the core of “An Unregistered Male,” my philosophical and spiritual beliefs remain steadfast, guiding the narrative.
Embracing Growth and Evolution
My decision to embrace the pseudonym Nathaniel Theos for “Unregistered Male” is not a break from our shared journey. It’s a testament to my commitment to growth, exploration, and creative freedom. The Shin Dao Philosophy teaches us to embrace new experiences, seek meaning, and continue evolving, while staying true to our core beliefs.
I’m excited to embark on this new literary adventure with you, and I hope you’ll embrace Nathaniel Theos and the unique insights he has to offer. Together, we’ll explore fresh perspectives and delve into the uncharted territories of storytelling.
Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to sharing “An Unregistered Male” with you under my new identity, Nathaniel Theos.
