What does 'Personal Fable' mean?
I'm going to answer this question with a video - watch this space!
What kind of book is 'Personal Fable'?
Not a fun one... But hey, some of the best books are the ones that kick you right in the guts. Our hero has a fragile mind, and we'll ride along as he descends into the chaotic underworld of his subconscious reality.
Influences behind Personal Fable are authors such as: Tim Winton (the undisputed king Bogan Lit-Fic), Herman Hesse (mostly Steppenwolf), Albert Camus, J. D. Salinger, Cormac McCarthy, Ernest Hemingway, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
Will there be more Ander Louis fantasy books to come?
Yes - There will be! Book 2 in the "A Duet for Swans" series is on the way, as is "The Black Ridge", an action packed wilderness survival story with dragons.
