“What’s up, Ray? Why so quiet?” asked no-one ever… because Ray is too damn active, over-social I’d say, but only when she is ONLINE.
The latest news:
- my blurb for 42 Degrees of Truth (Amazon) is ready – read below
- my book cover will be posted next week
- Ray is going to the Festival of Literature (Sweden), in the middle of October
- Ray is going to the class ‘How to write a feel-good novel,’ in November.
It doesn’t mean I’m planning to write a ‘feel good’ novel (to tell the truth, all my stories already a little bit feel-good, because they are making people smile or wonder ‘what the heck?!’, probably, more often the last 😂🙀…).
Blurb for Amazon
42 Degrees of Truth is a life-changing experience!
Each page of this poetry collection contains plenty of irony, dark humour, and straight-up oddness, all in the name of criticising social issues, cultural dysfunction, broken relationships, and our egoistic views.
Each poem is written with such beauty that you’ll find yourself craving to read the next one. Some are extremely heartbreaking, some are bitter and erotic, some teeter on the absurd, violence, and rage…
42 Degrees of Truth is also a powerful window into the mindset of the 21st century – the frustrations of sexism, the burdens of the monotonous family life, and the futility of the new All-What-I-Am culture.
As to be expected from Victoria Ray, the poems are mystical, sharp, and eye-opening, with a touch of dark melancholy.

You have to suffer one more month with ‘The Pearl Territory’ shots*/or chapters. I’m planning to finish the first draft in November.
- Absurd stories. I’m planning to post one during October, called “Chunky Burger” (with a Halloween touch). Main character – Mr. CruelMemories. And plus, one absurd story a week during December.
- I’m introducing a new hero – Posighdun Papadakis (you can call him Posi), a private investigator.
Yeah, I have plans to kill some folks:
good and bad. In a murder mystery novel!
And who knows …you might find your name on the list.
Very easy! 😂👻 This is my first book with a 100%-detailed plot. I also created a SPECIAL notebook for my characters. I know damn everything: from what they love to eat for breakfast to the colour of their knickers. 😏😳
I think it is impossible to write a good crime fiction without a precise plot and ‘knowing’ your protagonist/antagonist.

I’d like to discuss a topic of writing ‘nonsense’ or absurd fiction/comedy. ‘Absurd’ means that the stories aren’t made (or written) to look like NORMAL stories.
For normal stories – on the right…
For Ray’s stories – sit where you are right now,
enjoy that huge ice-cream con ✌️🍺
I want to create something odd and crazy but fun, something that other writers would never do. We are living at a time when we don’t need to fit… Isn’t it the best feeling ever –
to feel free?
Ah, and don’t forget to check my new interview on Jas’ Blog! You’ll find out a little bit more about – Victoria (aka “Ray”)
Next post – “The Pearl Territory”, ch. 23 – Bruck
