THE MAGIC OF STORYTELLING
Another Frankfurt’s past. My life is marked by fairs, and especially this one, the queen, although it seems that the crown is in danger because it was calmer and some pavilions were closed. This indicates that there were fewer people. However, Frankfurt still is the most important fair and meeting editors from different countries, and many friends, always compensates the fatigue. This year I was physically exhausted. I do not know why, maybe because we’ve tried to check country by country to find new and medium-sized publishers who might fit well with our books, or because it is just because I am getting older. Maybe both.
I confess sometimes I got lazy. But when I’m out there trying my best to transmit the stories we carry in our catalogs, I transform, like the phoenix, and with my best smile I tell each argument of our novels, those that my authors have written with such care, love and enthusiasm and. We want them to travel to as much countries as possible. At night, in the hotel, I think about how nice and complicated my job is: to tell stories to others, stories that can transport you to wonderful worlds, make you meet fascinating characters. That’s the power of reading.
Our magic is to transmit this story and find the right person to publish it; because when all this comes together, it is easier to reach the target, but it doesn’t mean we do. So it is so great to sell something to any country, is an unexplainable adrenaline rush, because somehow that story is part of me and is a shared dream with one of my authors. And illusions actually do something magical, we wish we could do every day many, and only mixing all these ingredients get success. But things are not this way, and external factors should also be in your favor. However, we does not give up, because our motto is that there is a good book for each editor, as there is for every reader. So our mission, long the way, is finding it. We carry pockets full of patience, enthusiasm, a little magic and a little luck, but nothing is impossible in a world where creativity and imagination are two of the strongest weapons that move it. So here is our catalogue. Don’t miss that story that you feel should be yours.
Find yours and notice me, it will be a fun adventure to share. This is the true essence of our work and we cultivate it here every day with a wonderful team of people who believe in what they do and who work very hard to start that “yes” which sometimes cost as much, but that sooner or later arrives. Please click, enter that magical world and choose the book that you sense that should be yours; because “I don’t know why but I bet on it” is often synonymous with success.
