Over the spring and summer this year, I read quite a few books. Most of them brilliant, I have decided that if I get too bored I don’t continue right away. I still give the book a second chance later on, because sometimes it’s not the book but my mindset, the weather, distractions or not being keen on the genre or style at a given moment. I read in my three languages from traditional as well as self-published authors, and I stumbled across mistakes of all nature. Continue reading “A question for authors”
Today, I have the pleasure to start a new feature on my blog “An interview with…”. My first guest is the SF Author Angela Guidolin, whose new book “Across Spacetime” will be published at the end of March 2017.
An interview with Angela Guidolin
You have a new book coming out soon Across Spacetime, a Sci-Fi romance, it’s your first book right? But not your first piece of published work. What can you tell us (my readers and myself) about this book?
Across Spacetime is a story about two time travellers from the future who meet in London in 1995. Although they have very different backgrounds-Samir is a Terran and Beatrice is a Progressive (a human who lives beyond the Asteroid Belt), they fall in love. They have to decide whether to stay for good in that point of the spacetime continuum where they are free from the prejudice of their society, but miss their friends, families and the technology that makes their life much easier, or return where they belong and defend their love.
The truth be told I am not a big reader of Sci-Fi nor romance, but the mash of the two sounds too intriguing. I must have read a bit of both but never together really. Who do you wish this book will appeal to?
This book is really about having the courage to follow your dreams, even though it means to disappoint or defy the people you love, like your parents. I wish it will appeal to readers who need some encouragement in a time of struggle, or look for escapism. As it is written in first person singular, and Samir and Beatrice tell the story from their point of view in alternate chapters, it is ideal to read out with a partner.
