I will rewrite the english version of my prologue. Since the original is in first person and I want to go back to the original text. Only reason I went with third person in the english version is because it felt easier to translate it into third person.

Do not fear however. I have found a solution to slow translations, so it will be done in very short amount of time. There will be no update to the prologue today but tomorrow I will release the complete prologue. And at saturday we will head into chapter 1 my friends. ^^

Here’s the trick that made me think…what if? Sure I’m very much aware that it is a trick. But this trick is so good that I started to play around with the thought, what if? What if David Copperfield is a true magician in disguise, what if all his tricks and illusions where just a way of fooling us into believing that he’s ‘just’ an illusionist?

If you haven’t read the prologue from the beginning then start here

After she hanged up her phone she called her boss. The reaction she got from her boss was hardly what she would have expected. “Are you crazy woman?” he asked her. “Do you even know who Avid Goldfield are?”
“Not exactly” she answered him. “First time I saw him was at that street performance I just mentioned. Her boss could almost not contain himself “He’s one of our times biggest illusionist and he has never before even given as much as an interview. Theres almost no information at all about him the man behind the illusions. All that is known is that he’s extraordinarily good on the stage, he’s one of a kind!”
She started to realize how big this story could be. Her boss told her to take as much time as she needed and he would personally make sure to cancel any appointments she might have. She were supposed to ask mr Goldfield if he would allow an article series with sneak peaks on the memoire and some articles about his life.
After hanging up on my boss I called Avid Goldfield right away. He answered instantly at the first signal “Tomorrow we meet at dawn at shall we say ‘undisclosed location’?” She snorted loudly and answered “If you continue to read my mind there wont be an interview at all. It isĀ  highly inappropriate and not nice at all.” He laughed like a boy and said “You would never allow yourself to miss this opportunity, besides your way to curious right wish is one of the main reasons I picked you for this, but I promise, I’ll stop answering ahead of time and let a normal conversation lead to the answers.”

If you haven’t read the prologue from the beginning start here

His reason was strangely soothing, so clinical and obvious that it almost felt like she was the unnatural one who ‘couldnt’ read thoughts. “Is it something you’ve been thought or something you were borned with?” she asked, her curiosity had always been greater than her self-preservation.
It’s not always that healthy to be so curious, but in her job a great portion of curiosity was only a merit.
“I shall answer all your questions during the interview, it’s not very polite to question someone over the phone” he said. She took out her pocket calendar from her purse to check for a suitable time and date. “Lets see, how long do you think the interview will take?” she asked him, while shifting through the pages in the calendar to the closest date with some free time. After a couple of minutes of silence he answered “Not more than approximately a week I would think.” She almost swallowed her own tongue “Not more then a week?!” she echoed “You want a freaking book written or what?!”
“You could say that” he answered “I want my memories printed” Now she was certain, he was a certified moron. “I’ll have to check with my boss if this can be manageable, thats way longer than I would have anticipated” she said. “Ok fine, call me back when you know for certain that you can do the interview.”

As this site is under constant improvement construction šŸ˜‰
I’ve tweaked the site a littleĀ to make it easier to navigate on the Prologue page. This time I didn’t remember in what order I added the Episodes, but in the future each new episode will be the latest entry to the prologue or chapter 1 and so on. So for instance, if you read episode 1-5 and then waited a couple of days and returned when two new episodes been poset ex 6-7, then it will be easierĀ to find those two entries.
Please comment to let me know if you have any other ideas for better navigation.

I will start deleting old prologue posts. There will only be one post about the prologue on the main page and it will be the latest entry. This to clear the clutter out. But don’t worry, you can still read the full prologue here.

My fiance decided to surprise me the other day with a special birthday dinner. She had been “slaving” in the kitchen for hours to make it all perfect for me. The result was a couple of delicious norimakis and a wok.

I’ve added an art gallery with some of my old paintings that I’ve made. It’s part of my education to learn the WordPress blogging system. But don’t worry, I wont forget my main goal to keep writing the book. A new part of the prologue will be added later this evening.
