Book cover ALERT! 🤡

What do you think? (May swapped ‘truth’ with ‘truths’ in the last two examples, but right now it doesn’t matter, she’ll fix it later).

It’s summer, after all! 💃😜 I ordered a promotional video for Dulcinea and The Death Code (length – 1 min),...

I write, because…

Message of the day: Don’t waste your time in thinking about the past or worrying about the future. You’ll think forever! Our thoughts are tied up with our problems and identity. Learn to let things (thoughts) go… Today I’m working with my novel Dulcinea and The Death Code and also the book review Fields of Lies, written by talented Sabina Gabrielli Carrara. I’m going to post it on 10th May...
