Project Dechentreiter marks my debut as an English fiction author. The eBook is now available on Amazon.
I must admit writing this novella was—wow—a blast! I had so much pleasure jotting down every single line. It was therapeutic in a way, and somehow, I just needed to get something off my chest, a burden. For me, narrative is a little more significative than just borrowing from the consolidated science-fiction and horror genres; the ride is all about life-striving experiences, mixed with fictional events. Certain parts of the story say what is going on in my actual life, without the reader’s awareness. Before you get the wrong idea: evil Jonas from the first arc has nothing in common with me.
Although the audience is scarce in quantity, I am extremely happy with the quality of the reviews and feedback. It really matters to me that the story has hit the right chords in the readers’ mind.
English is not my main language, so the challenge was big. I’ve spent a lot of time revising each sentence to make sure the flow felt as much natural as possible, then Paolo Baroni came to the rescue with another very intense round of revisions; finally, a professional editor, Todd Barselow, was hired to double check and fix the many “bugs” that were still there. It was great working with him and I highly recommend his services to every self-published authors out there.
