I realized that some of the questions I’m asked during my lectures and via mail are recurring. That is why I thought it could be useful to put all of them in here. I’ll try to update this section as frequently as possible.
ADAPTATIONS OF MY BOOKS
Will there ever be a movie inspired by your books?
At the moment there’s a project for making a movie from Chronicles, but there’s no director nor scriptwriter yet. Let’s keep our finger crossed anyway
Will there ever be a videogame inspired by your books?
Yep, so far we have made a good progress, and actually a demo of the videogame was enclosed with the first edition of the artbook. More info on the subject here:
Videogioco delle Cronache del Mondo Emerso
At the moment,though, only an italian version is being developed
Will you ever come to… for a lecture?
For up to date info about my lectures, keep an eye on the home page, since it’s packed with news and resources. And don’t worry, I happen to be abroad a lot: on 2008 I had lectures in Paris, Germany and Moscow
NEXT BOOKS AND DETAILS ABOUT CHARACTERS AND STORIES
Is there an English edition?
So far none of my books has been translated to English, but I really hope this can change
When will your book… be translated to my language?
I’m sorry, but I haven’t got much knowledge on the matter. If one of my books has already been translated to your language, the best you can do is to ask the publisher.
ON WRITING AND PUBLISHING
I’ve written a book: could you read it and tell me what you think of it?
Sorry, it’s a delicate and long-lasting job. Years ago, I used to read inedited books, but most of the times I wasn’t able to finish them and collect my impressions as promised to the author. That’s why I now prefer not to start what I can’t complete. I neither read short tales
I’d like to be a writer: could you give me some tips?
You have to read a lot. If you don’t read you cannot write. Read everything, not only your favorite genre. Then, ask people you trust to read your book and give an opinion.
