Basil
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 28,070. Language: English. Published: November 18, 2018. Categories: Fiction » Themes & motifs » Psychological, Fiction » Humor & comedy » General
Basil is rich in history, benefits, lore, and magic.  It is from the Greek meaning king or royal. One of the smartest things I did was buy a whole basil plant at the market… snip leaves from the top, put water in the saucer when soil needs to be moist and there’s basil all the time. There’s nothing like it. So fragrant…

The book can be described as dark, psychological, philosophical, poetic and autobiographic written as fiction. I want to tell the reader how it is to endure depression, panic-attacks and anxiety and how it affects someone and how it is to go through it more or less alone (almost) through a story.

(5.00 from 1 review)
There are no villains and no heroes, only people caught in a pivotal moment. One’s life course can be deviated in an instant and choices are often instinctive, not rational. Imperfect characters struggle with their duality and evolution, their reactions are the product of violence, physical and emotional abuse, neurosis, but also of love, hope and melancholy. Fear is what they have in common.
Edge
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 46,750. Language: British English. Published: June 13, 2018. Categories: Fiction » Themes & motifs » Psychological, Fiction » Mystery & detective » Police Procedural
Not that terror deserves to be put on a pedestal or has earned itself the very right to stand out above fear that screams, and horror that would laugh while it pulls your hair when the lights go out. Is it not ironic that it's so simple to describe terror? You see, of all things, terror doesn't do screams. Terror is shrewd in its muteness. It wants to

Joe
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 22,890. Language: Portuguese. Published: June 8, 2018. Categories: Fiction » Themes & motifs » Psychological, Fiction » Humor & comedy » Black comedy
Joe é um romance essencialmente introspectivo, criando uma visão de mundo a partir dos olhos do personagem. A ideia que animou a produção desta obra foi ilustrar, não em teoria, mas na vida prática, toda a perplexidade que se apodera de nós quando voltamos nossos olhares ao mundo numa perspectiva, por assim dizer, “existencialista”, e nos vemos tomados pela sensação do absurdo que é existir.
