“A (good) book may be late for six months, but a book published too soon is bad forever” by Rachel Aaron
I’ve received a few emails from you guys asking “When will the book be ready?”
Soon, I promise! Honestly!
But here’s a quick look at the whole process to show you why Swift Escape isn’t out yet. It’s a bad excuse, I know, but at least it offers some explanation 🙂
Here it goes. (Feel free to skip lines 1–40 😉 I won’t mind.) Continue reading “Why do (my) books take so long to write?”
Today was one of those days when everything felt depressing.
At this point, I’ve completed half of the book. To understand why this depressed me, here’s a bit of background for you. Continue reading ““Is the juice worth the squeeze?””
Every time I’m at the finish line of writing a story (please bear in mind, it’s a lengthy finish line), I usually disappear from the social media.
For a long while.
I’ve been absent from Twitter, I’ve only scrolled through Facebook every few weeks and blog posts have been non-existent.
And that’s because when I’m writing a novel, that’s all I’m writing: nothing else.
The new novel Continue reading “Name my character!”
Getting ready for summer? Downloading new books on your Kindle? Here’s something that might help 🙂 The Senthien is this week on special!
If you haven’t read it yet, use this opportunity.
If you have, please recommend it to your friends.
And enjoy the summer!
By accident, I just discovered a review someone (Anonymous) posted about my short story “Forbidden” on Barnes&Noble almost a year ago.
I’ve taken the liberty to copy it here:
“This was a completely and totally awesome short story! I have never before read anything like it. Continue reading “The readers I write my stories for”
Very quick post here.
A few days ago my family and I went to “Swiss Science Center Technorama” (kids always love it!). There are thousands of experiments to do and observe.
Among other things, I found – this.
Who knows what this is?
Those of you who read “The Senthien” will probably recognise it and know right away why was this interesting for me 😉
Unrelated to this post, I changed somewhat “The Senthien” book cover. In my pol, I had many who voted for that cover. My preference was the old one (just a tree), but perhaps this one might draw more attention from the potential readers, who knows?
The cool thing about being a self-published author is that I can do that 🙂 I can simply change things, and that‘s awesome!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Some of you who have been following my blog/Twitter/ Facebook will notice that the title of my first novel abruptly changed only two weeks before being published. 🙂 There is a reason for that. Continue reading “Five-minutes-to-midnight changes”
“A mysterious Vision.
An astounding new world.
And a life she never could have imagined.
Five thousand years in the future, the Earth is dead. A galactic network of terraformed planets, connected by teleportation portals, is populated by the genetically improved Descendants. The original Humans, labeled dangerous and barbaric, are kept under constant surveillance.
In this seemingly peaceful society, Dora Dana Dasnan, a gifted Visionaire, serves the leading race of Descendants by reporting her Visions of the future. But when one of her Visions predicts the unthinkable — contact with a Human man — Dora’s carefully ordered life begins to unravel as she desperately tries to hide her thoughts from her masters. Continue reading “The Senthien”
Back from the dead. And not as a zombie as some of my youngest family members would like! 🙂
No, I am finally at the end of the long journey of writing my first book, “The Mind”. And the journey demanded a whole lot more than I thought when I was starting out. Continue reading “What is the book about?”
I wrote “Dante’s 9” end of 2012 after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. I was shocked and devastated. I can’t imagine being one of those parents. Getting a call, hearing that there was a mass shooting in the school, finding out that your child was among the twenty that this man killed.
How should one continue living after that? Continue reading “Dante‘s 9”
