What is Sister Love?

To enter in detail into the novel’s plot would be rather counter-productive, since the discovery of Sister Love’s mysteries is gradual in the novel. I can nevertheless say that the novel is of the “superhero” genre, anchored in our reality as much as possible. The largest part of the story takes place in 2014, and a chapter out of two is a flashback featuring the main character. At the contemporary time there are three main characters: - Sister Love, a mysterious African woman who lived in the United States - Steven Thorne, a... [Lire la suite]

Dream: I’m directing the movie #SisterLove in 2021...

I made a really weird dream last night, I was about to direct the movie based on my novel "Who Is Sister Love?"! Good news? I’ll let you be the judge of that... In fact I was entering a mini-van, in which there were a dozen people. Who was driving? Who knows, in any case the van starts to move. I have an hour (my lunch time from work) pour to get to know these people. Obviously I trusted one of these people, a woman, to organize a whole cast and crew from A to Z. Strangely, even if of course, I can’t see myself, I know I'm dressed in... [Lire la suite]

Casting Call: Who Is Sister Love? #Sisterlove

For better or worse, my imagination, and those of most people of my generation, takes an audio-visual form, contrary to our dead ancestors that relied more on the written word. Bu for the longest time, I had no idea about who could play the three main characters of my novel, except for one of them! Sister Love herself was born in City of Heroes, and thus had a perfect physique you could only see in comic books! That was, until I discovered: the wonderful Sara Martins! I was zapping from tv channel to tv channel when I stopped on... [Lire la suite]

A new sale for the French version of "Who Is Sister Love?" on May the 7th!

Thanks to the buyer of May the 7th for "Mais Qui Est Donc Sister Love ?", the French version of "Who Is Sister Love?". I hope he/she will like the novel! It's my first sale since March, which had led to an enthusiastic comment from Vivien Prigent: http://normantrayeng.canalblog.com/archives/2014/03/23/29502762.html Thanks a lot for this buy, and here is the update on the sales for the two books: Mais Qui Est Donc Sister Love ? : 72 (64 free dowloads, 8 buys), 2 positive comments (4.5 out of 5 on Amazon.fr) ...

Revision of "Who Is Sister Love?"

Following the notes Vivien Prigent sent me since his enthusiastic reading of "Mais Qui est Donc Sister Love", I made a text revision as follow : I made Steven Thorne a candidate at an absolutely impossible election in the United States of America: Gouvernor of Washingon D.C.! I had made researches on the internet, but they apparently directed me on the elected of the Washington State, which isn't the same at all! Steven Thorne therefore is now candidate to the MAYOR of Washington election, and I added a line which says... [Lire la suite]

Second comment about "Mais qui est donc Sister Love ?"... also positive!

On the Casus No roleplaying game message board, one of the posters asked the title of my novel, I gave it to him and indicated that I would send him the ebook, but he insisted to buy it on Amazon, which was a very nice gesture. That's my first sale in 3 months! And not only did he buy it, he also read it right away, and this Sunday, March the 23rd, he was kind enough to post a very positive comment on Amazon.fr (translation from French by me)! 4.0 stars out of 5 Super supers! 23 march 2014 by...

Gods & Avatars / Aacadia VR first draft finished!

Yesterday I wrote the word "FIN" (THE END) in the first draft of my "novelita" (longer than a novella, shorter than a novel?). It contains about 54,000 words, a little longer than "Qui est donc Sister Love ?". Now I will begin the terrible correcting phase! I am more than a little proud to get to the end of a second text, now we'll see if it will generate more interest than Sister Love did as of now, which wouldn't be that difficult, let's be honest. I still hesitate about the definitive title of what is... [Lire la suite]

The mysteries of inspiration!

I'm currently writing a second novel, which will probably be as short as the first one, but hey, intention is what matters, isn't it? After a great period of time, I was blocked on it for a few weeks long, without exaggerating. I was unable to write another word to finish it, even though I knew perfectly how to end it. Simply, it was an inspiration breakdown. A word here, a word there, without enthusiasm. We get to this night, I woke up at 3:29am for god knows what reason. And suddenly, I knew how to write this ending. Don't ask me... [Lire la suite]

Sister Love in January, no news... almost!

Did I miss a sale in December? Anyway Amazon payed me 2 euros (some 2,8$), which bring the profits of Sister Love to an astounding 16,31 euros (23$). The 20$ bar has been passed! No new review, still no movement on Kobo and Lulu, and still no contact for other people to talk about the books online. To be continued, meanwhile I have to finish my second novel, after all I write first and foremost for myself! One of my contacts, a talented artist and writer, Jeff Doten, posted on Facebook a... [Lire la suite]
