Left Behind – the last part of the Ghosts Of War series

Ghosts of War_cover 04

This is it. I’ve finally nailed the last obstacles and now, thanks to the Amazon’s busy dwarves, the last installment of my first e-book series is out.

“Left Behind” is, by far, the most ambitious and difficult piece I’ve written in english. It’s a story about war, revenge, action and mayhem – all tied in a single low-price package. C’mon, it’s priced a bit more than an US dollar, no good science fiction can be cheaper than that.

So far, the entire series performed well and I hope that this final story will wrap it up nicely for those who already get the first three ebooks.

How to miss a deadline (and asking for forgiveness)

All right, I’ve missed it. My last installment of the “Ghosts of War” series is two days late and it will be postponed for no less than 30 days, so it’s official: deadline badly missed.

There are a number of reasons for this but I don’t want to justify myself, this post is about asking forgiveness from my readers and to reassure that “Left Behind” will make it on the Amazon Kindle Shop before the end of this year.

More news to follow soon, both about this project of mine and about what will happen in the last few months of 2015. Now, a good thing to be seen: Elena Betti worked out her magic once again and this will be the cover for “Left Behind”.

Thank you for your patience, and for all the support.

Get ready for Dark Legacy

Time for a self-promotional post, just to remember to everybody out there that there’s a new e-book incoming, hard and fast like any science fiction story should be.

The third installment of my ongoing series, Ghosts Of War, will hit the digital market July 15th, with the focus of the story about a young spaceminer in the Asteroid Belt and his dangerous journey to go back home.

Lost Heroes – it’s finally out!


What day is today? It’s the right day to unleash a new story on the market, to show you the second issue of my ongoing “Ghosts Of War” series.

New issue and the same team. Elena Betti created another wonderful cover, Davide Mana provides insight and editing, it’s up to me to tell you another story.

This one is takes place in the space between Venus orbit plane and Mercury’s own. Here you will two young Indian spacemen, ready to get the choice of their lives while recovering a wartime wreck. But there’s more, of course. Two different warships, engaged in a cat-and-mouse chase. And…

We have ghosts, ready to do whatever it takes to get a grip on the living. And…

We have secrets. Of the worst kind. And…

We have war veterans. People who are not afraid to put everything at stake to accomplish their mission.

Well, it’s time to go shopping and here’s the LINK!

Lost Heroes and my workload


To put it blunt, this is for a partial apologize. The end of March is right around the corner and the next issue of my “Ghosts Of War” arc of stories is not ready. So, no pre-order will be available from April, 1st and the theorized stream of news and bits about this story will be postponed.

This does not mean that “Lost Heroes” will not show up on April, 15th as promised. I may be a 24/7 troublemaker but when I promise a deliver I will do it. The story is ready to go up anytime and kick ass, it’s the stuff that you don’t get to see as readers that’s not working properly.

A deadline nearly missed and a first draft that lies waiting

screaming robot

No, this is not the title of a new novel, nor it’s from the top ten books at NYT. It’s just how things look like today, here at my place, when it comes to the “Ghosts Of War” project. What I got now it’s a 11,000 plus words story, titled “Lost Heroes”, that will be the second issue of my ongoing series this April.

It’s almost funny to look at it now, thinking about what that this tale should be if things run smoothly in the last two months. As a matter of fact, January and February were quit heavy on the professional side (and no, I won’t think about March now, this month will be a 31-days nightmare) and other things showed up with fangs and sharp teeth, slashing thru my schedule and pushing hours well after midnight.

The worst word for a writer: deadline


Today I was considering how to develop the last part of the next issue of my ongoing series, “Ghosts Of War“, then I realize that I wasn’t considering the most important factor: time.

You know, I’ve set to myself an easy deadline for this story. This ebook will be released on April, 15th. So there’s plenty of time for everything, isn’t it? Well, this is false. And it’s a good point to start a little thinking about respecting deadlines as a part of the author / publisher set of skills.

Here We Are!

Ghosts Of War - Rest In Peace - issue 1

Ghosts Of War – Rest In Peace – issue 1

Today is finally the day, the first issue is officially out for sale on Amazon. It’s like a giant machine set in motion, gaining inertia second after second. Maybe I’m a little over the lines with that, but this story means a lot to me and I’m happy to unleash it on the market. I know for sure that it will not be a best seller or the best story you will read this year but I’m proud, proud of my work and for what it will come in this year.

Genesis of a cover – Ghosts Of War Issue #1


Every book has a cover. That’s easy, right? But your book, the one you get mad at writing, should have a great cover! But even the greatest artist of all time cannot understand what the Hell you want if you’re not able to deliver the right message. It’s a different way to sell your work, isn’t it? What you have to do is sell the basic idea of your book to another person, the artist, to help him/her to maximize his/her efforts. Is it easy? It should be, because you’re a goddamn author / publisher and that’s a part of your work.

Finding an OST – Ghosts Of War


When I write I just need to have some music playing and I like to think about my projects like movies, each one with its distinctive soundtrack. A pity I ain’t a musician, so I’m not in the right condition to create an OST from scratch. Thanks to two good friends of mine, Davide Mana and Lucia Patrizi, I’ve found a very useful service – totally free of charge – to create the right musical companion of my series.
