    Hello and thank you for the visit..gorgeous writing!

  2. Fantastic opening; what a wonderful choice, to introduce the name and such a random fact at the same time. Quite a character you've developed, there.

    Went through "Remember" on Amazon…it has a good start :)

    Even I want to write and get published.

    • I have this obsession with opening lines. Hell, I even have keep a list with the best opening lines from the books I read. And so I do my best to write great lines for my stories. But I write so many of them that most of the times I choose the most boring and simple of openings.

  4. Thank you. After I'll finish work on my current project, Jazz, I'll get working on The Writer once more, and I'll try my best to upload the first two-three-four-five chapters here. Maybe I'll even come up with a release date.

    Hi. Thanks for the visit and like over at my blog.

    The description for this book is amazing. Your protagonist sounds very endearing, and the situation is something I can relate to. This blurb really makes me excited to read on and the book sounds very interesting. Good luck with this, I'll be keeping an eye on it!

    Your writing is inspiring…it excites my own gift of writing to grow and improve. There is also a feel to your writing that makes me want find a quiet corner and get lost in your words. Looking forward to reading your books.

  8. A little Odd Thomas, no?

    After reading your post today with an excerpt of Jonathan's voice I knew I HAD to find out where to read more of him. Now I'm taking a moment to circle the calendar and write this release date on it! Where can I find this book?? I want to pre-order.

  11. [...] begins with a ‘C’] wouldn’t want to be distracted with it.  It’s ruinous.  His book, “The Writer” will be out on Sunday, the 23rd— whoops, gave the name away. Why would anyone appreciate what [...]

  12. Love it =) So far I enjoy your blog. You have a very captivating way of writing.

    Looking forward to reading your book “The Portrait of a Writer” Your words have a way of cutting through all the jargon and getting to the heart of the matter. Truly inspiring!

  16. Sounds exactly like the kind of book that I would pick up in a shop…

  17. Looks amazing…need to have a look.

  18. Cristian making Jonathan invisible reminds me of the stupendously brilliant “Perfume” and Patrick Suskind’s Grenouille was unseen and unfelt so often due to having no scent. :))

  19. Funny. I’ve been working on a dark tragic fantasy, also called “The Writer,” for a few months now, and just stumbled on this today. I typically have to sift through a lot of indie books to find something I like, but as soon as I started reading your sample, I knew I’d found another book worth reading. It’s on my Kindle now.

    I can’t comment on the plot yet, since I haven’t read it. But I can already tell from the sample that you definitely know how to write.

    • I just finished reading. You are a gifted writer. I’m honestly a little frightened by how similar our two stories are (very different in some ways, but the theme, and the fatalistic ending, though not the same, are very close; even a gun and the police are involved.) I suppose it’s a common enough type of story, though. My own idea was influenced a lot by the movies “Stranger Than Fiction” and “The Neverending Story.” I’ve always been fascinated by the idea that stories are a reflection of reality.

      Anyway, just wanted to stop by and tell you that I loved your book (and also, I suppose, to let you know about my own story, just so that, on the off chance that you ever actually encounter it in the wild, you won’t think I was trying to rip you off :-P)

  20. I loved the extract on Amazon and have ordered a copy – can’t wait to read the whole thing! x

    I just bought a Kindle copy of your book “The Writer.” I expect to be amazed and entertained and maybe learn something new. Please accept my best regards and respect, even before I read the book.
