Hello, everyone,

My ballet-centric (!) novel "Our Lives as Kites" is live at Amazon, as an eBook in Kindle format:

My deep-felt thanks to everyone at this site who contributed to my education in this great art at the time of writing it.

As a token of gratitude, and for those who may be interested in having a look at the book, I'm announcing here my first free promo, of 24 hours only, starting last night, August 15, at about midnight (Pacific time), and ending tonight night, August 16, again at midnight. Thus, the promo is already on at the time of posting this.

You will need a Kindle for the PC reader or another free program in order to read the file on your device:

Happy downloads and many thanks again.

Sorry to be late on this one.

Today, August 27, is another FREE DOWNLOAD day, but it covers both my books, including the 1st one about ballet:

My novels:
"Our Lives as Kites" — a choreographer in search of inspiration and survival in her art —
and
"Simon and Hiroko" — an international love story with an interesting turn, I hope —
are live at Amazon, as eBooks in Kindle format:

BTW, I'd appreciate any reviews or commentary (there's a contact e-mail at the end of the book).

Thanks again.

Hi,

My novel
"Our Lives as Kites" — a choreographer in search of inspiration and survival in her art —
is now available in paperback and Kindle, as well as in epub.

Blurb
What makes an artist tick, go on and, to use the dirty word, create?

We enter the world of ballet through Yvonne Fillon, a one-time soloist ballerina who is on a journey of self-discovery in rough waters. We enter it during one of her days out in the outdoors, when she launches a kite and takes in everything from the wind and the clouds as a source for inspiration. For, at the onset of middle age, she attempts to cross over into the even more competitive world of choreography, her lifeline to staying in ballet.

When, years later, success in this endeavor comes her way, it would seem strange to her that others envy her, either for her loves or for her dance pieces, for she knows the toll. Still, Cain strikes.


Thanks again.

From a Big 5 editor (London based), on "Our Lives as Kites":
—-
The writing is assured & distinctive, and you clearly know your protagonist inside out.
...
A stylistic point: your sentences are very elegantly crafted for the most part
...
I think this is a well-written, very intelligent novel which really evokes the world of ballet in a very powerful way.

Susie Crow, a former soloist with the Royal and Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet, and a choreographer, has honored me with a review.

She mentioned in a personal message that the book was a "very interesting read."
