A novel about friendship, love, and passion, written in a manner reminiscent in parts of David Nicholls’s One Day. A book about the beauty and blindness of several Romanian artists and musicians and their treacherous journeys to love and happiness.
My book Poets, Artists, Lovers: A Novel is available on Amazon for only 99¢ today.
A synopsis of sorts:
Henriette, an accomplished sculptor, seems to find more joy in her feminist-inspired work and her piano playing than in the people who care about her. Ela, a piano teacher turned book reviewer, hopes to discover the key to happiness and a more meaningful life through studying the workings of the mind and crafting poems about emotions she trusts will lead her to a better place. Joining them in beauty and blindness is Pamfil, a violinist who dabbles as a singer and lives mostly for the moment and his monthly parties. As they follow their passions, they find themselves on treacherous journeys to love and happiness, and are slow to figure out how to best tackle their predicaments. Fortunately, their lovers and friends are there to help . . . but then a newcomer complicates things.

Mira Tudor, That’s a persuasive synopsis. If I hadn’t bought and read your novel (three times now), your write-up would have convinced me.
In another but related direction, why did you choose the names that you did? Ela and Henriette seem Italian- and French-influenced whereas Pamfil sounds rare.

Thank you, Derdriu! 🙂
Pamfil is an old Romanian name, hardly used anymore. It’s Greek in origin, from pan and philos, which is why I chose to use it for my seducer character 🙂
