Book Birthday for the Goolz

Those little bundles of joy were born this morning. They weight 14 ounces each and came out of the press all purple and blue. They speak Italian thanks to the great translation of M. Astolfi and will make the kids tremble and laugh all over Italy. Their author and publisher (Giunti Editore) are well and happy.

And the 2019 Litterado Award for Best Fiction goes to...

The Goolz Next Door, A Bad Night for Bullies, wins the Litterado Award 2019 🎉🏆🏆🏆🎉 Hurrah !!!

The results were greeted by cheers and a round of applause of the 100 and some members of the young jury : "Wow !!! We're actually applauding for a book!" one of the supporters of the Goolz Next Door cried out.

And the Crok' Livres Award Goes to...

This year, the Crok'Livres Jury decided to go for scary & spooky as they elected "The Goolz Next Door - Vol.1 -  A Bad Night for Bullies" as their 2019 Winner!

I met the Crok'Livres panel of readers/voters and told them everything I know about writing and creating proper monsters.

We discussed my own writing process - and shared some essential tips on how to create memorable screams and chills.

And the experience was... terrifyingly nice!
