It is a very difficult thing to define and harder still to get right, but working with the Belgrade team of artists, SugarBricks, to bring to life my vision of Guy Erma and the Son of Empire has been one of the most rewarding experiences of teamwork in my life so far.

This book would not have been possible without the creative perspiration of the following: Lazar Kacarevic, Nevena Boskovic, Sasha Totic, Boban Radovanovic, Vladimir Eric, Julija Ljubinovic and Jelena Rajcevic

Meet the Author:

The author was born in Wallasey, England, in 1964, and moved to the South of France when she was eleven. She spent her teenage years living in the cosmopolitan city state of Monaco and became immersed in its many languages and cultures. An English girl in a French school, for three hours each week she would sit at the back of the class as her colleagues learnt English. To pass the time, she wrote stories. This led to a lifetime of writing novels, scripts, stories and articles.

In her working life, Sally writes marketing communications and manages large international websites.

In 2010, Sally joined the Hogs Back Writers, a club located on the outskirts of Guildford, and she set about turning an old manuscript into this novel: Guy Erma and the Son of Empire. Sally currently lives in Farnham, and she is married with two children.

Personal Opinion:

Prior to trying out Guy Erma and the Son of Empire, I thought I'd never discover a science fiction story that I could understand and enjoy, yet here I am. (Christopher Pike's stories are more of fantasy/surrealism/ philosophy, and I never liked his stories when he delves more into science fiction.) Along with the story that I was able to understand and to look forward to more from the author, the three novellas also contained pretty cool pictures of the characters and the setting, and I know I'm not the only one who wonders about the behind-the-scenes when it comes books. For those that wonder how the art was done in such an intricate detail as well as how it was planned and by whom, this book is guaranteed to answer those questions. It was pretty interesting in getting to know how the artists imagined the complex details for the picture and to also see the characters in color as well and to find out why the covers are the way they are.

This was given to me freely by the author
