Monday, June 24, 2019, 8:00 AM PDT through Sunday, June 30, 2019, 8:00 AM PDT “I would have this book in schools everywhere, because it really teaches people (and kids) the cruelties of humans. The story as a whole and Danny reminded me of Bambi. Highly recommend the book!”—John-Clement Gallo, author of  The Shadowverse An excerpt from the book: Danny watched with joy as baby seals crawled out from hollows in the ice that served as cots and waddled to their mothers. They hungrily suckled on warm milk before returning to their ice beds to continue their sleep. Danny’s seemingly indiffer...

Your Votes and My Smiles


Don’t believe an author who tells you they don’t like their books. It’s a pure lie. If we didn’t like the books we wrote, we wouldn’t publish them and share them with you! That is the real truth. Since we already did that—wrote them, invest a bigger or smaller amount of time, money and enthusiasm to publish them and bring the final product in front of you to enjoy, love or hate it (heaven forbid the last one happens!)—we also hope and count on your support and kindness to help our books reach others and continue their life through your purchased copies, word-of-mouth recommendations, honest reviews or votes in various contests . As it was the case with my first novella  A World Without Color...

This is why I give you four days to  download my e-book . Happy reading! In the brief moment he surfaced, he thought he heard a familiar sound. Rumbling, buzzing, splashing. Dragged under too soon, he could not figure it out. But he had managed to breathe in...

Blooms and Thorns of May


Most definitely May 2018 was one of the most exciting and annoying months. When my heart bloomed and my soul wept with frustration. Good news? My  Twitter  profile got its first 10,000 followers!

Happy was also May 22 when my copies were released by Croatian customs and arrived at my home! Celebration! And then frustration! Boring and long frustration just like all those GDPR notifications pil...
