Sombras del tiempo: resultado de la colaboración indie hispana

Hace un tiempo un grupo de escritores independientes nos encontramos por uno de los tantos foros en los que la comunidad indepenciente nos gusta participar y nos unimos en un proyecto común: la elaboración de un libro de relatos.

New Spanish author: Caminante en la sombra

Today, I’m featuring a new Spanish author, Caminante en la sombra. This is the tranlation of one of his short stories. I hope you enjoy it.   An unforgettable walk   The sea was calm, as if it wanted to go unnoticed. The place was overwhelmed with peace. I paddled softly, almost with a harmonious movement. The temperature was excellent. The shore was so far away that people seemed small.   I looked at her. She was radiant. Her long golden hair billowed with the rhythm of the delicate breeze that floated in the air. Her dreamy blue eyes were

Do we confuse the character with the author?

“Write about you know”. That’s certainly the advice aspiring writers receive the most during their career and it makes total sense. To leave aside life experiences, people we have encountered, fears, insecurities, traumas and desires is almost impossible in any art field, let alone writing. So, where does the writer end and the character begin? For many readers, separating the character that lives the story from the writer that tells it is a complicated task. Sometimes this has a real reason behind it. The vast majority of writers incorporate part of themselves into their characters which often make them look

Free ebook: A Bedtime Story

You might have noticed that I have taken longer to write my next post. I apologize for that, although there is a good reason for it. I have been finishing up my next book (Yay!). Since all this writing adventure started, I have been so busy working on the business side of it (social media, promoting my first book, events) and writing the next book that I forgot about the actual reason why it all began: to encourage people to read. I’ve always been a voracious reader. There’s no better way to unwind and forget about your everyday problems than

Ebook gratuito: Un Cuento Antes de Dormir

Habrás notado que mi último post ha tardado en llegar más de lo habitual. Pido disculpas por eso, aunque tengo una buena razón: he estado terminando mi último libro (¡Bien!). Desde que toda esta aventura literaria comenzó, he estado tan ocupada con la parte de negocio (redes sociales, promocionar mi primer libro, eventos, …) y escribiendo el siguiente libro, que por un momento olvidé la razón por la que todo esto empezó: animar a la gente a leer. Siempre he sido una gran lectora. No creo que haya mejor forma de relajarse y olvidarse de los problemas diarios que sumergiéndose en

Creative writing workshop January

The energy of the objects The only clue I had was a black hat with a white stain inside that he had left behind before abandoning us. It was as if deep inside he wanted us to find him one day. I spent many years looking for him, leaving no stone unturned, longing for a reunion like those in the movies where he would give me a surreal excuse that I would forgive eventually, even though I would throw it in his face for the rest of his life. However, the reality turned out to be otherwise. My effort wasn’t
