Dark Legacy: Book I - Trinity & the 4Cats

Celebrating the completion of my first novel at the 4Cats.
It is done. After over a decade of work, my first novel, Dark Legacy: Book I - Trinity, is complete. I received my first copy on the 5th of October 2010. A couple of weeks later my wife, son, and I went to the 4Cats cafe in Barcelona, Spain. It was there that we celebrated the birth of my first serious, literary work.

Why the 4Cats? Well, on the 4th of January 2007 my MacBook, with the most up-to-date draft of my novel, was stolen at the 4Cats. I was completely devastated by the theft because I did not have a recent digital back-up of my book. Instead I had a 6 month old back-up on my Sony Viao, thus meaning that 6 months work prior to the theft was gone. This incident set back the completion of the novel. But, the past is the past, and, well, here I am nearly four years later, and the book is finished. So what a better place to celebrate than the place to which I had overcome the hardship of having lost a significant portion of my work, to then keep at my craft to finally complete what I had set out to do.

The book will be available to the public January 1st, 2011. There will be a website to promote the book, which you can check out in the early part of the new year. The site will be: www.thelegacycycle.com

And from this point forth, after a very long hiatus of not writing on this blog, I will be writing updates as the weeks and months go by regarding my book and the next book I am working on.

All the best,
Domenico Italo Composto-Hart

P.S. I have also updated my website (just cleaned it up a bit).
