Like every new author in this world who chooses to follow the force the path of self-editing (didn't came as a choice for me actually), the craving need to obtain the required funds to live off my passion and projects is more real than reality itself...really. Making a living out of a writing habit has never been so complicated than it is today.

The emergeance, and subsequent zenith of the internet kept bringing its share of huge opportunities, new difficulties and modern challenges (#HistorianModeOn), and adapting to it seems look an almost-mandatory necessity for any knew author setting his heart on as hard as getting their break on the stage of famous author.

I do not claim anything as big as that (although it would be sooooo great), but enjoying a stable income from something you love to do is the ultimate dream, and not only for me (I hope so !!). In this context, I turn to this awesome crowdfunding site for I consider as the beginning of an extraordinary adventure, and try my luck at becoming a freelance part-time author, all while working additionnally on who knows what other kind of projects (illustrations, comic books...even live cartoon and animation !).

My first books are currently being written, and my patience being tested ! My main project lies in the making of a Science-Fiction novel : "The Colonia Cycle - Volume 1 : A New Threat". The project only started a few months ago (as of August 2015, date when I joinded this awesome site), but its progression goes on more than well ! More information shall be regularly, and gradually posted on this site. The lucky guy I am also has a passion for digital drawing (photoshop is my fiancé o.O), and I intend to flood you with a wave of illustrations as well.

For me, being able to interact with you means more than a lot, and I really love what I'm doing far beyond the "I need to survive' mark ! I have never been a big fan of "business" relations based on my own personal financial needs. If I had the possibility of not depending on those tiny not-even-eatable pieces of paper, I would definitely offer everything I have to give for free ! I wish money was not the key to happiness, but unfortunately, it is still more comfortable to cry in a porshe than in a fiat ! (you can still give me your winning lotto ticket though)...
I'm not saying that the world shall become clearer if you become my patron, but let's just say that it could help anyway !

In any case, thank you for dropping by ! Have a great day, and may luckiness be with you in your own personal projects ; a dream is made to be believed in !! :)



My Current Projects


  • Colonia Cycle - Volume 1 : A New Threat

  • The project began in early 2015, first as a concept science-fiction production occuring in an epic space opera and galactic-war-like context.
     Currently, the project is still at the very beginning of its conception stage. More information about this project should be coming during the next couple of months. Please like and subscribe to my Facebook, Twitter or DeviantArt if you feel interested in following his project !

  • Looking for a Reason to Live

  • Conceived as an ephemeral tribute fanfiction work done "on a whime" in the first place, the first writen story ever produced by the author since, August 2012, stars one of the main protagonists, Nobita Nobi, from the storyline of Doraemon universe, a Japanese anime show adapted from the eponymous manga, in an alternate version of the story.

    Notice : The project in question, as a kind of fan-based "stand-alone" story arc standing out in the science-fiction-dominated universe of the author, has its own dedicated site. This project is totally free, and is meant to remain so. I will never use any copyrighted content to make money out of it. But the fact is it still can be interesting for you to check it out, not because you should all be fans of Doraemon, but because it can provide you with a foretaste of my writing style, which could be useful for you to know if you feel interested in helping me in my project !
