So, October is almost over. The year is flying by. Since I moved from Switzerland to Singapore much has happened. All in the blink of an eye. My workload has become more varied (and three times the volume), but infinitely more interesting. I have been to Taiwan and Hong Kong several times, The Netherlands and Cambodia, and will shortly travel to Malaysia, Korea, South Africa and Thailand. More countries will follow.
At the same time, much has changed in my personal life. Massive non-work related decisions have been made. Scary decisions, but ones that will ultimately lead to the next level of happiness.
Thus, as I finalise the last book in the Huahuqui trilogy, Huaca (sacred place), I am compelled to think about my own final destination. My own sacred place. Experiencing life in the East where, for the most part, material things are secondary and an enlightened view of the world is prevalent through Buddhism and Hinduism, I feel that my own Huaca is not a place but a state of mind.
Perhaps then, this internal change is reflected in my last book. Indeed, Huahuqui began with cold and logical science and internal turmoil at the core of its characters. In Huaquero, we saw a shift in the protagonists' beliefs as they were forced to consider things beyond their experience. In Huaca, it culminates in each individual’s new understanding of his or her world. All, of course, wrapped up in action, thrills and spills.
Therefore, without further ado, check out the awesome cover designed by my good friend John Byrne. He has designed the front cover for each book in the series, managing to not only keep the feel of the design consistent each time, but somehow tap into my head and put in on paper. Moreover, if you look at each design closely, he has incorporated tiny details about the books and their author.
Now, sit tight and wait for the book. And of course news regarding the movie studio execs who are currently reading Huahuqui.
