Write in the morning, revise in the afternoon, read at night

Today one of my followers said that I ‘can’t write for toffee’. Yesterday, one more – a promoter – said that my Sophia von X book cover sucks – seems it all starts well, as usually 😂. My answer is clear – these kind of followers goes to ->>>>> spam ( I actually found it in my spam lol so, I’m thinking: approve it or block it?). I’m probably too...

A love-hate relationship with the writing life…

My thriller, Sophia von X, is finally here. 👻 It took me 6 months and 3 very extensive weeks to finish the book. And now, when I’m thinking about all the work I’ve done, I’m realising I killed an insufficient amount of people. I’d like to kill more… I’d like to kill them all… Ah, what a great feeling to say goodbye to all the crazy heroes you spent days and...

Thriller Sophia von X

1. Print cover is here. I decided to make it simple – black & white: 2. The book will be published at the end of February – 220/230 pages. The book is, first of all: religious thriller = a religious artefact or secret is discovered; different people or groups are fighting for control. absurdist + existential novel = characters usually suffer an ‘existential crisis’ and forced to face/confront themselves or their environment/situation....

Déjà vu is simply remembrance of the future. Wayne Gerard Trotman The subtle pull of familiarity while witnessing an event isn’t uncommon. Over two-thirds of the population are projected to encounter an episode of Déjà vu at some point in their life – the odd sensation that the events transpiring before you are a reoccurrence of previous experiences. Déjà vu has led many to seek the answers behind the curtain....

Hocus-pocus or how to create an awesome book from a crappy unfinished material in 2 weeks…

Hello, February! The one-month-long vacation is over and the reality of “damn, Ray… are you going to edit the book?” is here, slapping my face with a warning of fast-approaching deadlines. In a world of Indie Publishing, jam-packed with frustration, chaos, confusion, anxiety, and laziness, it’s really hard to stay on track 24/7. Things to remember when you need a push: No one cares! It is you against you. Every...

Ink… a Drug (Nabokov’s #quote)

The last post of 2019… What amazes me is that most days feel useless. I don’t seem to accomplish anything – just a few pages, most of which don’t seem very good. Yet, when I put all those wasted days together, I somehow end up with a book of which I’m very proud. Louis Sachar 1. What a crazy year!! 2. Blurb for “SOPHIA von X” is ready!  Genre: religious...
