"The style is just right, the story telling fast-paced and the twists and turns of the plot are clever. Proof if need be that the Kindle platform is letting us discover real writers. "
By « Le Fond et la forme » Excellent
"Required reading when boarding and should then be continued once on board the aircraft. Guaranteed thrills and suspense or sweet dreams to look forward to. "
By « montesquieu » Gets you in the right mood
"I discovered this author through this little collection of short stories and feel like I want to read more! The idea of stories which all begin in the same way is carried off well and gives rise to various scenarios which range from the tragic to the comic. Reading these three stories each with its own quite different concept is a nice way to pass the time."
By « Philippe Grédisset » Nice one!
Just some of the 19 comments for an average of 4 stars on French amazon for the original French version of this book. Translated by Chris Parkinson
This novella is based on the following principle: the same paragraph introduces three short stories each with a different ending.
The business class cabin in a plane, a violent and windy rainstorm, a man in his seat with the adjoining seat unoccupied.
Who is going to come and sit next to him and what will be the chain of events from then on?
All that remains is to kindly ask you to turn off your mobile phones, turn down the main lights in your room and to wish you a pleasant moment of relaxation in our company.
Fear of Flying
Snow in New York
Jacques Vandroux, who trained as an engineer, is called upon to travel all over the world. Writing is a way of occupying himself during his many long trips.
Three years in the writing, "Les Pierres Couchées", his first and most successful novel was finished in 2008. In 2010 he wrote "Multiplication", a short and original novel and finally "Au Cœur du Solstice" in 2013.
With the encouragement of a friend and thanks to the work of his wife, he has self-published his books in digital format on Amazon and other platforms.
The quick success of his novels in France was, to say the least, unexpected. All of his works quickly became Amazon Top 100 bestsellers and had long stays there. Two novels reached number one on Amazon and "Les Pierres Couchées" was in the top 100 for over 400 days. All the novels enjoyed substantial sales figures.
