Launch of the 2016 Book fair season

Here we are almost there! The Brussels Book Fair (February 18 to 22) opens to the public Thursday morning at 10 am and in addition the entrance is free this year. So what can we expect? A crowd of people enthusiasts and curious came to meet us 🙂

Come on, come see me, then buy a book or two or simply to say hello. Whatever you decide, you will always be welcome. Do not be afraid of the crowd or the lately events, not to forget them of course but just to live. Because remember one thing, that ‘risk’, we also take it to share our passion with you 🙂

After Brussels which ends Monday night, I go to Paris Porte Champerret, for the ‘Fantastic Book fair’ (26 to 28 February). This will be, my first edition in the Capital, therefore a great opportunity to meet new readers and also see familiar faces 🙂

Then, to stay on the wave, ‘Made in Asia’ (11 to 13 March) in Brussels again. This also will be new to me. I will not be dressing, just myself, but I think I will be a festival of color and characters of all kinds straight out of manga and other fictions.

I will not list all next shows after those three, but know that I will not stop and the following weekends will be equally filled!

So I tell you one thing: see you soon … very soon 🙂

IPPY Awards 2016 – I give it a try!

Sometimes I tell myself that we must push things, and to get more visibility, well we have to do this. This is why ‘Shadow Play’ just crossed the ocean and landed in Traverse City, in Michigan. ‘5080’ people entered the contest before me. I put the book into two categories: ‘short story fiction’ and ‘Ebook’.

IPPY Awards 2016 – Book Title: Shadow Play – Author: Sylvie Ginestet

Categories: 07. Short Story Fiction – Ebook: 03. Best Mystery/Thriller E-Book

Even if nothing happens, at least I tried. If you don’t do something then there is no chance you will achieve something.

So now, what is the IPPY Awards? Conducted annually, the Independent Publisher Book Awards honor the year’s best independently published titles from around the world. The awards are intended to bring increased recognition to the thousands of exemplary independent, university, and self-published titles published each year.

Who enters the IPPY Awards? All independent publishers are eligible, ranging from self-published authors to major university presses. About 2,400 publishers participate in the Awards each year, from every U.S. state, Canada, and English-speaking countries overseas around the world. The 2015 IPPY Awards attracted 5,700 total entries; winners came from 45 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, six Canadian provinces, and ten countries overseas.

Have a nice day and let’s cross fingers!

Winners will be annouced by mid April.

Cry

Cry, cry little heart

You’re tired of this world without colour

Tired of those people who deign not to see your glow

 

They understand nothing,

See nothing

Hear nothing

So why are they here gravitating around you …?

 

Some questions remain unanswered

Some actions have no effect

 

Cry, cry little heart

You are empty, but without rancour

Cry, cry little heart

Dry up your fears

 

Tomorrow on the horizon

Maybe doors will open to another place

So,

In the light, you will discover

That something worthwhile remains

Far from duplicity and stupidity

Because,

In trying too hard to find perfection

We find only unreason

 

Cry, cry little heart

Time will dry your tears and,

Lighten your soul.

 

Sylvie

Soon we will no longer see the sun …

 

Time passes by and the man remains the same.

The man passes on and time follows its course.

 

One more stone placed upon the wall of our disappointments,

Soon, we will no longer see the sun …

 

Let’s open our mind for it to marvel.

Somewhere in our sleep, the answers to our questions are awakening.

Somewhere, a spark ignites passionate fusions.

Far away from all the lies.

Lying by omission; « I didn’t say it; I didn‘t lie. »

Trying to convince yourself all the same that you’re right.

Far away from hypocrisy; « I’m smiling at you. »

Cold and deliberate.

 

One more hand placed upon the wall of our disappointments,

Soon we will no longer see the sun …

 

Never stop dreaming; you might decease.

Never stop loving; you might wither.

Never stop believing, you might begrudge yourself.

 

Is kindness a weakness?

No, it’s a gift… It’s also forgiveable… Sometimes.

But not to the point of being blinded by cold and deliberate false smiles.

Not to the point of believing all the lies, by omission or not.

 

It’s how life goes.

 

One more breath placed upon the wall of our disappointments.

Sylvie

« Unveiled »… my night (03.48)

Sleep enveloped me like a chrysalis.

And …

The very next moment,

I transformed into a butterfly.

The blue-green of my eyes has spread over my wings.

And …

It has fulfilled your dreams.

 

As light as the air.

I let myself be carried away by the wind.

No longer immune to the weather.

Exhilarating …

And …

For a moment in time,

I was flying.

Flying so high that nothing could reach me.

Not one look, not one word … I was free.

And …

It fulfilled my dreams.

 

Shortly afterwards, the butterfly landed.

Up there, way up there on the crest of the mountain.

The beating of its wings has ceased.

The blue-green has reverted to the iris of its eyes.

And …

It has observed.

And …

The moment after,

I woke up.

Silence enveloped me like a chrysalis.

A cocoon of tranquillity … far from uncertainty.

 

So …

I took my paper and pencil.

Then …

I wrote you a few words.

 

Sylvie

I would Like….

I crave the return of spring

I crave feeling the timid warmth of the sun on my skin

I crave smelling all the scents of  renewal

I would like to see the buds awaken

I crave to stay standing there,

To close my eyes …

And let nature invade my senses …

These scents which return tirelessly, year after year, bringing  their flood of memories to make me smile

I crave all this while outside a mere hint of the next season timidly shows its face …

But, it’s just an illusion because … Winter hasn’t had its last word, not yet, it’s too soon.

 

But, even so I would like to feel the Spring.

 

(Thank you Graham for your poetic touch on it :)… )

Resolution (song)

One day I will find my way

Killing all doubts

A day I will find the way

Filling all voids

 

When I look around, I see nothing

When I look inside, I feel nothing

 

If I knew where I go

I would give my soul to know

Holding out my arms to the sky

Yelling « tell me ! help me! »

 

But, once again…

When I look around, I see nothing

When I look inside, I feel nothing

 

One day I will find my way

Killing all doubts

A day I will find the way

Filling all deep voids

 

I will climb up the mountain

Of my sorrow

Of my loneliness

Finding what I’m looking for

 

Without any doubt

I will find my breath again

I will survive despite all

 

To live…
