Another book, finally

Hello

I’m am speaking to the void and to those who were gracious enough to buy my first book in digital format.

I come to you again.

We all do. Finally, i’ve finished editing, preparing, making and remaking things on this, the second part of the Grand Tour.

Titled The Grand Revenge, this book in particular is set one year after the end of the first book and continues the adventures of Tom and Gus, the two Earthlings that dared cross the threshold of space into unknown areas of the Universe.

Of course, like last time, this will definitely turn into an adventure of unthinkable proportions to them and to you, reader.

In the very near future the book will be made available and I will make sure to notify you as soon as it happens, so stay tuned and make sure you’re ready for this second part of their travels through space.

Inevitable Delay

So, apparently things decided to happen all at once, though I could have foreseen some of it happening all together.

The good news is: i’m moving away from my currently oppressive apartment and into a fresh one, slanted floor and cracked tiles to boost. But hey, I won’t be jumping around a lot, hopefully.

The bad news is: i’m moving in two weeks (less actually) and i am in rush mode to get everything in order so i won’t find myself without water, gas and electricity. Unfortunately, I have been informed that the transfer of the internet connection from one house to the next will be costly and will take about a month. So, seeing as how there are 1,000 (One thousand) priorities in my life, i decided that moving was number 1 (Who’s A-Number One?) and pushed a lot of other projects to the side for the time being.

The book will be hanging, waiting for the time to be published and bought by you, loyal buyer of amazing books on sci-fi and other themes that are present in my upcoming novel.

My YouTube channel will also suffer from it as I will have very little time to edit and record for the next few weeks. So, I will have a reduced presence on the internet.

There are other projects I’m working on at the moment, but those will have to remain a secret for the time being.

I hope this post finds you well and in good health. And if not, I hope you get better.

Yours truly,

The Writer.

The Mindset or Entering the Vortex of Creativeness

I have a process for writing, usually.

I tune out the world around me. Make sun or rain. Make snow or let loose the dogs of war. When I sit down to write, my mind disconnects from reality and the less tethered it is to reality an all its dull things, the better. The less reality intrudes in my slowly turning machine of ideas, the farthest I travel and the better I can focus on creating marginally passable ideas of fantasy and sci-fi.

Some people prefer the silence of a small, far away room. Others prefer the surrounding sound of headphones and not much else. I don’t have a favorite place or a favorite moment of the day to write, to create, to be creatve.

But I do need focus. Traveling down the rabbit hole, unlike Alice would have us think, is not a free fall into the dreaming world of deep mathematics. It’s rather a dirty affair that demands focus, attention and dedication. Entering this rabbit hole is not an easy thing.

Some people tend to brush away the notion that to enter this rabbit hole, to ride this wave, to catch this particular buzz, we need energy, focus and a sort of disheveled attention, so they break our focus with odd requests.

Parents who say things like: “go do the laundry.” “take out the trash” “clean the floor” are the worst enemy of that long walk for a short drink of water. It’s the natural enemy of the creation process. When you start to get into the zone, that focused state that nepalese monks would call zen or nirvana, (i just call it the forever typing) you should let go of the material world and all things that surround you. It’s one of the most intense things i have ever done in my life and still do.

Now I have a fox prancing around in my living room, disrupting my focus at every single step of the way. Even now…

gods be merciful with my focus.
