PHANTASY by MARLOWE

 
Story about a disgruntled young man who begins to therapeutically write and in the process, creates a fantasy world where, he ends up creating a monster which seems to be totally indestructible!

***** FIVE STARS FROM MOMTO4BOOKLOVER

The way this book was written is quite unique. If you can get past the initial "what the heck?" reaction, you will be in for quite a treat!

This is one of those rare books that bring you into a whole other world and make you feel like you are really there. The descriptions were enough that you understood what was going on and could picture it in your head, but not overwhelming where you found yourself bored. It is sometimes hard for an author to pull that off, but this time it was executed very well.

To sum it up, I loved it! Would recommend to anyone who is looking to get sucked into a different world for a little while.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Well, I don't have much to say about myself. I have been writing since my school days (short poems, stories, etc) but never could make it big in the offline world due to competition. Then later on in my life I discovered the awesome world of self-publishing! It took me some time to get back in gear but hey it was worth it, and here I am! What inspires me to write? Hmm, pretty hard to answer that one! Hmm, maybe the dream of becoming rich and famous one day! :-) Seriously, although I consider myself to be a jack of all trades, I feel that writing is the only thing I can do, and do well, without any restrictions! There is no limit here that I can't cross, no boss whose rules I have to play by! I am a slow writer and more of a seat-of-the-pants type! One I am done with my book I'd regret about not having a proper plan or method etc., but when I am about to write my next book I am back to square one again. Creature of habit, you can say! I pretty much want to slip into my characters, put myself in their shoes and think about 'Hey, if it were me instead of him or her, then what would I have done/said in a similar situation?' That apart, because my characters are pretty multi-dimensional, it takes quite a lot of research before I can sketch even ONE character fully! Although I've been writing for a long time, I wouldn't have been here had it not been for a friend: she really convinced me (I don't think it was her intention but anyway) to join the world of self-publishing. She is a pretty good writer herself (actually I think a better writer than me) and doing well in the publishing world! I mentioned her name in my book Phantasy because it was she who helped me in the arduous task of formatting my book! For wannabe writers, I have just one thing to tell them 'Write your heart out. Don't give a damn about what people would say about it!' I believe that the future of self-publishing is bright, although not everything about the self-publishing world is as rosy as it looks on the surface. There is quite a struggle and investment involved ahead, if you really want people to read your ebook, that is!
