Let’s start from the plot. Invisible is set in the US, where an arsonist s...

If you are a new autho...

Hence, about this, there are two options: or the author has a great writing talent or the editor of the traditional publisher did a great editing work. How...

This is not the usual magic tale for teens, but a very interesting novel, which deepens the affective relationships between parents and their children. Through a fantasy story, the novel pushes readers to wonder what they would do if their mother had suddenly disappeared during a sea trip.
