New cover for my #eBook #CELETERRA

After the initial success of this adventure story, the designer and I decided on a new cover. I requested something simple, yet intriguing. How did we do?

By the way, do you know what the word CELETERRA means?

Excerpt from Celeterra:

Lumen had donned a long white gown, simple in appearance yet highly effectual. He had brushed his hair, making it stand out. He quickly walked over to the pedestals and poured liberal quantities of cannabis onto the coals. Then he sat down on the throne, straight yet relaxed. He practiced his smile and some hand movements.

Vance stared at Lumen. To his surprise, Lumen managed to look like a god – dignified, impressive even. He seemed cool and relaxed, without a trace of nervousness. Vance concluded that he was stoned up to his eyeballs, and that he probably considered the evening more fun that a three-ring circus.

Silently and slowly, Vance started to move to the right. He groped along the wall for the doorknob. As his hand found the metal, he turned it.

Eugene got up from the floor, ready for action.

Vance opened the door and stepped out. He pushed the curtain aside.

Lumen stared at him in disbelief. It could well be that he hadn’t known that there was a room behind the wall. In any case, Vance’s sudden appearance was obviously sufficient to shock him out of his marihuana buzz. He got halfway out of his chair and swallowed hard.

“It’s you! Scoundrel!”

Vance walked up to Lumen and hit him squarely under the chin with a powerful uppercut. It lifted the man into the air and he tumbled over the back of the throne. Lumen’s body collapsed on the floor. Vance looked down at him. Lumen was unconscious, a trail of blood running from his lower lip. Vance flexed his fingers to suppress the pain in his hand.

He sat down on the throne. Eugene had followed and Vance signaled the dog to jump onto one of the smaller chairs. They both looked at the closed curtains.

The lights in the hall became brighter and brighter. Vance had to cover his eyes to stop them from hurting. The music became louder too. Still, Vance could hear that people had started to arrive. Their feet shuffled about and they bumped against the drapes, but they didn’t speak.

#Fundraiser – raising money for the children in Syria #UNICEF #charity #assistance #aid, #welfare #relief #funding

Dear readers of my novels, you recall the past fundraiser (click here for details). I am now announcing a new fundraising activity: focus on helping the children that are the victims of the conflict in Syria.

For the month of May only, I will donate 20€ to UNICEF (learn more here) for each new book review of my work. By writing a simple review, you will help children in need!

UNICEF and Syria

For 70 years, across 190 countries and territories, UNICEF https://www.unicef.org  defends the rights of every child. Explore UNICEF to see the programmes they create on behalf of children. “After six years of conflict, Syrians are facing the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, with grave protection and human rights violations occurring daily. Children have paid the heaviest price in the conflict, and in 2016 their suffering hit rock bottom in a drastic escalation of violence. Nearly 6 million children now depend on humanitarian assistance, with almost half forced to flee their homes. Many families have lost everything – including, for those who have fled the country, the protections that come with citizenship.”

How does this work?

  • Simply write a review about any of my books on any the stores that offer my work (find many of the stores that offer my novels here) during the month of May. Naturally, all honest reviews will be rewarded; but spam, spiteful or purposely malicious reviews will be ignored.
  • Feel free to use the comments section below this post or the contact button at the top right to contact me, once your review is ready.
  • End of May 2017, I will count the number of reviews that were added in May, and multiply that number by 20, and I will give the resulting total to UNICEF. It’s as simple as that!

Spread the word with help of the buttons below.

March2008 156

  • A maximum of 300€ will be donated.
  • Did you know? Over the last five years, all royalties originating from my work have been donated to charity.

Excerpt from Celeterra:

Altijd was wearing a ridiculous pair of tight black trousers, with big translucent yellow rhombs. His shirt seemed to be made out of some shiny crimson acrylic fabric. The buttons were open all the way down to his belly, revealing the scanty hair on his chest. The heels of his green and brown shoes were at least 2 inches high. Vance wondered how he managed to walk in them, let alone use them for dancing.

Vance opened his closet. New items had replaced all the clothing that had been there the morning before. Instead, he found a tight pair of cerulean trousers, with zigzag waves of ginger and pink, a huge white belt of imitation leather with a golden buckle and a shirt of the same material as what Altijd was wearing, but with scarlet and olive stripes. It had big imitation silver buttons. The shoes, on the bottom shelf, had flat soles and big bulges at the toes. The leather was black at the front and white at the heels.

Vance held up the garments, a look of despair on his face. Altijd laughed.

“Don’t worry Vance, you will look as hip as beans! Put it on! No, no, don’t try to put them away – you can’t go out tonight without the right attire.”

Vance closed the door in front of Altijd’s face and slipped into his new clothing, cursing. He looked at himself in the mirror – ridiculous! He was only doing this for his friend, if Altijd had not been waiting for him outside, he would have stayed at home!

Together, they hurried to the party. The tent was already full of people, all dressed as quaint as the two newcomers. There was Samantha, wearing a white Lycra bodysuit, with big red buttons and a purple belt; John (who had broken his neck in a riding accident), dressed in red jeans and a black shirt, with a pink cowboy hat and big knee-high boots. Eric had come in a shiny pair of bronze trousers, apparently made out of plastic foil, on top of which he wore a white shirt printed full with small red snakes.
