Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

The European Renaissance never happened. The Ottomans were not stopped at the gates of Vienna. Ferdinand and Isabella failed in their attempt to defeat the Moors. Imagine a world turned upside down. Northern Europe is the basket case. The Middle East is the center of the developed and "civilized" world. Check video samples at: http://www.youtube.com/user/CliveGilson?view_as=public Acts is a reflective, personal journey, a moving story of loss, love and transition. It is about Marwan the boy and Marwan the man. The story is uplifting as Marwan's humanity shines through: the book itself is like a meditation on isolation, which links the reader with Marwan: to keep the focus on him keeps the reader's focus narrow

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Clive Gilson

First things first - why are all of my stories free to download as eBooks I've thought long and hard about this and the conclusion I've come to is that it's all about presence Despite some years of success in competition and with magazines and online publishers I've still got a pile of rejections from the mainstream industry My stories and books have good reviews and have received positive editorial for years now all of which leads me to think that our industry is a little skewed at the moment So rather than flog a dead horse I've decided to go online to resurrect good old Dickensian serialization and to make my stories absolutely free across as many platforms and sites as I can By concentrating on creating presence and by building a download audience I'll find a way to make a living out of all this imagination and graft You can of course still buy print versions of my books just check out the links on the relevant book pages http www cpibookdelivery com As for me I've been writing since age and had various shorts and pieces of poetry published over the years I started writing longer fiction a few years ago and have even set up my own small publishing company in collaboration with other writers at The Write Factor in the hope of encouraging others to be confident about self-publishing and all of the stuff that goes with that route to getting your work out there I have some experience in the industry generally having worked as a journalist and contributor to various magazines and newspapers although I'm concentrating on fiction right now I'm looking forward to getting new work up for you all in the coming months and hopefully we'll get chance to share work
