Translating Narcotic Love

Today, the German translation of Narcotic Love has finally hit the market. So far, only the ebook is available on Amazon. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the paperback will follow a bit later, once I have made sure the printed version looks as expected. Please stay tuned for that. It has been a bit over eight months since I […]

Narcotic Love: 6 months later

It has been six months since I self-published my first book on Amazon and I am excited to announce that I finished the first draft of the German translation yesterday, which will be published soon. While it was not my initial intention to translate Narcotic Love in order to be able to close this very personal chapter once and for […]

Don’t compare yourself

There is an old saying that an artist should never compare him/herself to another artist. The same goes for writers then, of course. I recently stumbled over a post on Facebook where a first-time author announced that she was in the process of writing a film industry related book. At this time, there are only two books of the same […]

Launch of NarcoticLove.com

Today, the website to my book NarcoticLove.com has launched. What this page IS about NarcoticLove.com is a source of information on narcissistic abuse in addition to the same-called book Narcotic Love: In and Out of the Coma of Narcissistic Abuse. It provides blog posts and a form of community for victims and survivors of narcissistic abuse and others who like […]

Why reviews matter

As independent authors and publishers, we take care of everything. It starts with the research, then the actual writing part, the editing, the formatting, the design, the copyright, other legal obligations, and ultimately the publishing of the book and marketing. Getting Narcotic Love out there took me exactly one and a half years from the first written word to ultimately […]

Make it personal

One of the best advice I have received so far is to “make it personal”, which can be inevitably beneficial when you do not know where to go with your story. And by making things personal, I am not saying to take things personally and easily get offended. Here is what I mean as a writer with a little backstory […]

Narcotic Love: 2 months later

My book Narcotic Love was published on September 13, 2019 – two months ago to be exact. To my own surprise, most copies have gone to my home country Germany so far. Due to demand and personal requests, I have decided to translate the book into the German language, as well! It has been an exciting journey so far as […]

Why ‘too much black’ matters on the page

You may have heard the term before or read it in the many screenwriting books out there on the market “Too much black”. Too much black means nothing more than too many words on the page – an overflow of mostly useless information, over-describing the setting or over-directing the actors and cameras, which is not part of the writer’s job […]

Why I chose to self-publish

When I first thought about publishing a book, all I knew about it was to approach a traditional book publisher. However, of course, breaking into the traditional book market without any formerly published work seems sheerly impossible. While writing itself is considered a craft or an art, we cannot move on blindly to the next step without thinking business. Why […]
