Over the edge

So Absurd It Must Be True, Book 2 Β is here! FinallyπŸ’ƒπŸ˜‚! NowΒ I can take 1-2 weeks’ break… and forget about writing for a while. Kindle price 0.99 and paperback 8.99 (one month only), but because of COVID19, prices may vary or be different, depends on the time, country, and Amazon’s decision. OBS! I haven’t checked the print version yet, because the delivery time is much longer. If you’d like to buy a paperback, I’d advise you to purchase it in the middle of July.Β 

Grab your copy and have fun!
Reviews are appreciated!

I scheduled two posts for this week, but from July I’m taking time off (until late August) – to rest, live, and work on my next book. Mostly, to rest tho… I hope 🀨😫 I’ll post some updates twice a month on the blog.Β

I don’t know which book will be published next. To tell you honestly, I don’t want to work on The Secrets of A-Ria. You have to love fantasy, to write it; you have to spend time with kids; you have to know ‘young-adults-books-field.’ It is also a huge commercial niche, very overflooded with fantasy-books from every corner of the world. I don’t have any chance. I prefer to stick to my niche, smaller one πŸ˜‚ -> surreal adult humor, absurd, dark comedy (+ grotesque, fast thriller). I want to write something I like. Otherwise, the writing process makes me unhappy… well, in any case, my next book will be ready in October. Stay tuned! πŸ’•β˜•οΈπŸ“š

  1. I agree! Write what makes you happy or it will sound fake.

    • Victoria Ray NB says:

      True… writing should be fun. Plus, I think I found my market niche πŸ™‚

      • Hmmm, I’m not sure I’ve found my niche, or else I’m a lousy book marketer πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ€”

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        It should be small, because then you can shine alone there πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜œ

        But in any case… you should enjoy writing this genre. That’s all that matters

      • I do. I can’t imagine writing any other, but I’d like to write something that has room for humor. I can pull from my Navy background. Sailors are always good for humorous anecdotes πŸ›³πŸ›³βš“βš“πŸŒŠπŸŒŠ

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        Yes, I’m saying YES to sailors humor πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜œ

      • Hmmmm maybe… πŸ€”βš“βš“πŸ˜

    Awesome stuff. Just ordered a copy.

    • Victoria Ray NB says:

      πŸ˜‚ it’s actually not so bad this time… a bit different from book 1. Less sex, more satire πŸ§πŸ˜…

  3. Aye aye Captain. Congrats!

      • Just started reading it. No time to lose.
        Mind you I’m rereading Dostoevsky. I’m at Crime and Punishment right now.

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        Good author & book… my uni exam was β€œThe colors in Crime & Punishment, by Dostoevsky”… 70 pages of hell, trying to explain – why Dostoevsky used yellow, brown or grey πŸ˜‚ in diff sections of his text/or descriptions.

      • Oh I remember that. My professors were too obsessing about stuff like colors.
        I started reading your book.

      • And Dostoevsky. I’m reading you simultaneously.

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        Lol πŸ˜‚

        At least the first story is similar… πŸ™ƒπŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈcuz of the stolen* (by Ray) heroes πŸ˜…

      • Borrowed, you mean. Allusions are more than ok. I use them too.
        Even Shakespeare stole. The story is original though.

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        Yeah, even Shakespeare stole… πŸ‘βœŒοΈβ˜•οΈ

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        I’m going to reread Madame Bovary… Nabokov said it is one of the best books ever

      • I love it too. But the last time I read French and Russian classics was 20 years ago, so…It’s only now I start to appreciate some things I was too young to grasp back then.

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        Btw… Nabokov hated Crime & Punishment… as well as Dostoevsky:) πŸ˜… he kinda hated everyone lol

      • So I’ve heard.

      • masercot says:

        I find The Idiot to be the most enjoyable of Dostoevsky’s works. Maybe not the deepest because The Brothers Karamazov is basically a philosophy book disguised as a novel…

      • Victoria Ray NB says:

        I love Idiot & Brothers… I think Brothers I love a little bit more πŸ™‚
        I’d recommend Demons by Dostoevsky – it’s a satire + tragedy + psychological drama in 1 story.

  4. masercot says:

    I’ll put it on my Amazon list.

  5. aarzoorose says:

    Congratulations!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ I am sure it would be great! And now time to take care too. Good luck for the next writing task tooπŸ‘πŸΌ

  6. Congratulations on Book two. I love your comment about “It’s really not so bad this time.” Need to read it but it’s going to be a while.

  7. River Dixon says:

    Congratulations! Can’t wait to read it.

  8. tom says:

    Congrats. Enjoy your break

  9. Sorryless says:

    Starting another glorious fire, I see. Keep on sizzling, RNB!

  10. Simon says:

    That’s interesting, I had never thought about writing something I don like…

    • Victoria Ray NB says:

      I liked it… but I don’t think #YA is my genre, & I’m not sure I’m interested writing β€œlong series”. I’m going to finish book 2 tho. Feel obligated lol πŸ˜‚

      It was my first long book/novel. Bcz Absurd Stories, book 1 – my blog posts (2016-2018)

    • Victoria Ray NB says:

      Also, everyone is writing fantasy & im .. like yay! look, I’m writing fantasy too πŸ˜‚
      I just wanted to find the place… & I believe I did.
