So Absurd It Must Be True, Book #2 is on the way – publishing June 2020 (probably one week later than planned). Proofreading will take 14-15 days, plus – beta… but it is almost here! 💃☕️📚
It’s hard to describe a book that doesn’t fit anywhere… a book that uncovers the most bizarre human desires and absurd aspects of our lives.
In So Absurd It Must Be True, acclaimed Blåsbo Gatan satirist Victoria Ray offers her absolutely odd vision on the present situation in the world, relationships, and human emotions. The book is a collection of dark humour and surreal parodies, where the mix of satire and irony unveils the truth about our laughable existence called ‘life’. But don’t worry, Ray is here to help you make sense of it all.
Each story exposes the tragedy of being an adult, the man-woman game, the kaleidoscope of human relationships, and the limitations of our sexual fantasies.
Among the topics covered:
- Why Santa Claus had forgotten that you exist
- Neighbours and how to deal with them – one by one
- Russian gang leader vs American CIA agent
- Why Leo Tolstoy killed Anna Karenina
- Cults, dreams and deaths
- The walls of wisdoms in lifts
- Famous five are hiding in Cuba… go figure!
- Sex fantasies revealed
- Enemies and their tears
- What happened in Kyrgyzstan with Jesus?
- Where to find a clue for NO CLUE?
- New AI generation
- Fairy tales and bored Queens
- Ghosts and X files
Anyone who had ever spent time with another human being or, at least, been born… will love this collection.
The book contains profanity, fun or gross erotica, and elements of violence. Only for adults.
Genre: surreal humour, satire, parody, horror, dark comedy, absurdist fiction, comic strips.
There’s only one book like this on the market! Enjoy!
Also, I’m working on three other books:
- The Secrets of A-Ria, Book #2 in Child of Illusion series (about Dulcinea, YA fantasy) – working on the first draft.
- The Pearl Territory (you can find the blurb here ) – working on the third draft (final).
- Almost Faithful (genre: psychological thriller, humorous thriller, life drama). You can read the blurb and see the book cover below – examples only. Hopefully, the first draft will be ready this autumn.
The Secrets of A-Ria
As you probably know (or don’t 😂), Dulcinea is not Dulcinea anymore. In Book #2, we have to deal with a totally different person and messed-up situation.
Protagonist – Aileen Cairstine Reid (former Dulcinea)
The questions – What is the universe? Why we are here?
Main focus on the building of A-Ria’s world, from scratch.
Two heroes are back – Jess and Joel, but as a part of an A-Rian program. I mean, they are not humans, but codes.
The goal – try to stay safe and do not end up behind A-Rian’s walls… or in someone’s stomach. 🤨
Genre: metaphysical fantasy, urban fantasy, absurdist fantasy.
Page count: 180-220
Publishing: Autumn 2020.
Book cover example is below.
The Pearl Territory
Written as 50% script and 50% private journals. Planning – 200-230 pages book. I’m thinking about changing Mars to Titan, but I don’t know… Mars sounds familiar. Plus, I don’t want to work with new facts, so, everything will probably stay as it is.
Genre – absurdist science-fiction & fantasy, dark comedy, ero guro.
Hopefully, it will be published in December 2020.
Let me know what you think, and which book you’d like to grab… like RIGHT NOW!🔫
Genre: life drama, humorous thriller, psychological thriller.
Place – Australia & USA
The idea – being faithful, how easy is that?
This book will be published January-February 2021
Two ordinary families.
Three different women.
One obsessive man.
Margo and Barry are living the perfect life. They’re happily married (or so it seems), working great jobs, and traveling the world. Ellen and David have it all – the looks, the big house by the beach, a successful business, a grown-up daughter, Marie. But underneath, each couple is in crisis and there is only one cause. His name is Charlie…
Charlie is a widower with an autistic son. A man with exceptional acting skills, struggling to forget his painful past. A man who is not ready to let go, who is breaking two families and destroying their trust.
Out of options and with their backs against the wall, Margo, Ellen and Marie discover that murder isn’t a tool reserved only for criminals.
Let me know what do you think and what are you doing lately?
And don’t forget to bring cookies, coffee and books… ☕️📚😜
