Il mio libro Il Respiro della Luce uscirà in e-book lunedì ^_^
Trama: A volte si può iniziare dalla fine di una storia d’amore per ricostruire qualcos’altro: è così per Alon e Stephen, quando quest’ultimo decide di concludere la loro storia “mal assortita”; è così per Delilah, che lascia il villaggio dove aveva ricostruito la propria esistenza per gettarsi nelle braccia della grande città e ricominciare per la terza volta.
Così, se da una parte l’eco di una fine trascina con sè il ricordo di altri finali mal posti, dall’altra il ritorno alla normalità- e alla libertà- apre la strada a sentimenti forse meno avventurosi, ma non meno appaganti.
Chi parte, chi ritorna e chi resta sospeso fra realtà e sogno, ma tutti ugualmente in cerca della stessa nota.



Questo é il link dove lo potrete acquistare (se vi va :) ): Parole Indipendenti


Sul mio website é disponibile un'anteprima: Il Respiro della Luce Anteprima

The English version should be ready for September! ˆ_ˆ

my first novel, Il Respiro della luce/Breathing Lights is due to be realised May, 30 (Italian version) and some days later in English.
I'm scared.

il mio primo romanzo, Il Respiro della luce, esce il 30 Maggio (in italiano) e pochi giorni dopo in Inglese.
Sono spaventata.

Nel frattempo sto costruendo il mio sito personale:
Desert Rose <\a> che fungerà da archivio, in modo più ordinato (spero) di Organt.
Se qualcuno volesse farsi avanti per uno scambio di link mi farebbe piacere :), lasciatemi un commento.

E se aprissimo un sito dedicato ai racconti/romanzi/letteratura originale m+m, f+f e LGBT in genere?
MI piacerebbe vedere finalmente i tanti buoni racconti della rete raccolti in un solo posto e promossi ad un pubblico più ampio.
C'é nessuno che mi seguirebbe?

I am not dead, it's just that.. I don't feel like writing here.
I guess I am lazy (I still read my friends-list at least once a week) and busy with my real life.

I finally decide to put myself back at work on Caramel Popcorn: I want to edit it and give it a new site (the lj is pretty lame), but I don't have the time to deal with the graphic.
Is there anyone who is willing to help? At least to have a cover for my novel *puppy eyes*

Meme taken from slurp and modified by me (emh.. can't write fanfiction ˆˆ").

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/fic an original story of any pairing/character alert/rating of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. (If you can't write, I'm sure you can make something else.)

How much beauty there is in Margi sleeping in our bed in the morning?
It's one of those days when my heart is so filled with love it could break at every minute.

I love you, Princess.

As the title says.
Yesterday Chiara came to visit Margi and me in Firenze. It was so sweet of her and it made me so happy! We had a lot of fun.
She proved that not all the new friendships I made this year will go away in few months. Still, sometimes I feel just as a part-time friend. There is nothing wrong with it, it's just that I grow affections for people so easily and I rarely let them go. Generally is the other side that let me go. And for me it's always sad.

I miss my life in Cambridge, I miss my friends. It's easy, I guess, when you are not back home. I do not have a home in this country, it's just ordinary madness (I guess every person with some intelligence feels the same about Italy).

I am missing my Janes -Chiara, Elisa, Ilaria. I am going to see Chiara again in August (twice ˆ_ˆ), hopefully Elisa at the end of the month. I do not know when I'll see again Ilaria.

Luca.. Margi and I are trying to go to Naples to visit him, it is not that far away from Margi's place.

Miranda.. I do not know if I will see her again. Perhaps next year, I do not know. We are not getting in touch lately, I do not know what she's doing now.

Sven... has just desappeared, trapped in his business, I guess. I'm barely hearing from him on Facebook. I doubt we will have the chance to meet again.


Then... just less than two fucking months and we will be leaving for Tel Aviv (Pulcinella's secret, I think we tell almost everyone already).
I miss Illan so much. But we have both been surprisingly good at being in touch with each other. I was not hoping for it. That a good reason to be happy for.

I can't say the same about Nimi, partially it's my fault, çause I am not good at chasing after him and then I do not think he is missing me. Plus, I guess he is trapped in his own business at home -and that should be positive and I hope it makes him happier.


And now that Margi woke up, we are going to leave for the beach-house and hopefully have some relax for at least some days.

PACKING



...and being on the edge of the tears almost everytime I think of someone I'm leaving behind does not help.

Bleah.
