"A Brilliant Plan" featured on Wattpad!

Proud to announce that my "A Brilliant Plan" novel is one of the "featured" books on Wattpad in the category "Mysteries / Thrillers". Of course you can head over to Wattpad and read the story there (all 50 Chapters of it). It's amazing how many people have read this story. A Brilliant Plan is the first English full length novel I published, so I hold it very dear to my heart. May many other people discover it during October's promotion!

If you prefer to read it on your beloved ebook reader like a Kindle or any other device, of course you may buy it at any online book outlet in any format imaginable. Fancy the print in your hands, also possible. Here's the link to my book page where you find some of the outlets selling the story.

Big news, the title for my next novel will be "Teen Monster Hunters". The title says it all. It's about hunters in their teenage years chasing a monster. 

And this is how you can help me and receive a free copy of the upcoming book: Head over to kindlescout.amazon.com , logon with your Amazon account, and vote for Teen Monster Hunters!

This will help to land me a publishing deal with Amazon Publishing, which means a great makeover editing and better promotion for a great book!

 

Edit, Edit, Edit! All in the name of "Good"!

I hope, I do not complain too much about the editing process as such. It is simply a brutally boring work but it needs to be done. Received back the edited version of my newest Young Adult novel. Grammar and spelling I already approved mostly unseen. Writing in a non-native language gives you almost no argument NOT to accept these type of errors. That took ten minutes. 

What takes ten days is the content edit: Rephrasing, rewriting, logical error. See below one of the many examples. 

 Typical edit for rephrasing

What brings me through this phase is good music in the background. Yesterday it was a rediscovered Gerry Rafferty's City to City. Tonight William Fitzsimmons's Derivates enriched by Halloween, Alaska. Enough, I shouldn't write blogs, I should edit my manuscript!
