EL VERANO DE NATALIE DAVIS-THE SUMMER OF NATALIE DAVIS
PLOT
Named after American actress Natalie Portman and supermodels Ebonee Davis and Hannah Davis (now her name is Hannah Jeter nonetheless) as Hannah Davis became one of the best ever covers for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. 

My protagonist, Natalie Davis, wants to become a supermodel. However, her dad, a remarkable lawyer from Manhattan does utterly hate the idea.
As a result, the mum of Natalie sends her to a rural part of Spain, Tarazona (Aragon, my village by the way) to spend a quiet summer with the grandmother of Natalie.

 Nevertheless, what was going to be an idyllic, beautiful and moving summer turns out to be an incredible, dangerous and exciting adventure that changes the life of Natalie Davis forever. El Verano de Natalie Davis

MY GRANDMOTHER MARÍA
I am paying homage to my grandmother who died at the age of 90 and whose last two years of existence were marred with disgrace. What is more, as she was really nice and I love movies so much, I am paying homage to Martin Scorsese movies for instance.

Movies I did watch with my grandmother when I was a teenager. As a matter of fact, she would watch any movie with me regardless of its genre as she was very kind. What is more, I would listen to punk music with her as well. The name of my grandmother was María and this novel is dedicated to her.

INSPIRATION NATALIE DAVIS
I want to write a trilogy. Indeed, the ending of this book is open and perhaps an introduction to a wider story. I am very happy with the result, I started to write El Verano de Natalie Davis (the summer of Natalie Davis) 3 years ago. Just when funny comedian Jimmy Fallon presented the new cover of Sports Illustrated. 

This cover with supermodel Hannah Davis appeared on his show; The Tonight Show. It was such a funny presentation (it is not always like that) it made me conceive a story. Follow the link to discover this funny appearance of Hannah Davis on The Tonight Show 

AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE
The summer of Natalie Davis, el Verano de Natalie Davis is available worldwide. You can buy the book or you can buy it to read electronically. It costs 14 euros in paper and 4 euros if you prefer to have it on your electronic devices.  Do share and comment. Thanks in advance.

Erron Morad in Who is America?

 WHO IS AMERICA?
After two middling movies such as "The Brothers Grimsby", or "The Dictator" Sacha Baron Cohen and his team have found a perfect format for them to shine. "Who is America?" is a 30 minutes show for television that fits perfectly. Who is America

Because the programme is shorter than a movie, the appearances of the dissimilar character impact on viewers harder than when they make a movie. There are 5 new characters invented by Sacha Baron Cohen. In my opinion, the best of them is Erron Morad.

Erron Morad
Who is America

ERRON MORAD
Captain Erron Morad is an Israeli anti-terrorist expert. He wants to implement his knowledge into the United States in order to fight against radical terrorism. Not only the acting of Sacha Baron Cohen is superb, but the adventures of this character are also always funny.

What is more, he interviews relevant American people who seem fools as Erron Morad makes them look like that. I do not want to provide further details, but if you can see this show do pay attention to this Israeli character: Erron Morad.


ERRON MORAD


SACHA BARON COHEN
Sacha Baron Cohen is one of my favorites comedians. What he does is really, really difficult. I recommend everybody to watch this television series: "Who is America?". However, I do not know if they should do a second season owing to the nature of the series.

Halcombe on publishing a Christmas Book

The day before Christmas, ("Nochebuena" in Spanish (something like "Goodnight" in English)), of 2014, Halcombe wanted to go out. In fact, this day is really important insofar as people come back to their hometowns. Thus, people gather in order to hang out and have a good time. 

However, despite wanting to go out my group of friends insulted me and preventing me from doing so. As a result, I went to bed too early almost crying.

Halcombe Norilsk
Halcombe, eating and drinking 

The following day, Christmas day, I wrote a funny story, a very funny one. My aim was to celebrate 31st December properly because the last day of the year one should show good humor. Indeed, this funny story epitomizes black humor.

Only one person has read it and time has passed. The other day I woke up thinking I ought to publish it with a very fancy cover. I felt I had to do it. Nonetheless, this story is short and perhaps it is a waste to publish it alone, because I want to publish the second part of the first book I published.

It would be lovely to have it for Christmas and I do want to have it physically with me even though nobody buys it. This is the hesitation I am having. Should I publish a book, a Christmas story with scarcely 5 pages or it is way better to include it in a longer book?

What do you think? Do share and comment.

"The life of Anna in London under Nigel Farage dictatorship"

A great friend of mine has urged me to keep the story alive after these two sentences:

"In modern Britain, slavery can hide in plain sight. Follow the true story of Anna, a young woman snatched from London in broad daylight".

Halcombe has agreed to write the fictional story of Anna after this introduction. 

THE LIFE OF ANNA IN LONDON UNDER NIGEL FARAGE DICTATORSHIP
Anna had arrived in London 12 years prior to this day. She could not stand the situation of Andalucía (South of Spain) where there were zero opportunities for her. Indeed, her husband was not able to find a suitable job. 

The husband of Anna did spend the entire day drinking manzanilla, a popular kind of drink. The one people from Southern Spain are used to drink.

As a result, Anna packed her suitcases and left her husband and her family in order to live in London. One of the best cities in the world, perhaps the best if we take into account its history.

Anna had studied at the University, she owned two degrees. She was a Maths teacher, yet as she was a foreigner with a strange accent, she had to work as a waitress. Despite her efforts, she could not find a job as a Maths teacher. However,  the real problem came the day Brexit took place...

NIGEL FARAGE
Nigel Farage only wanted to have a good job. He had a small political party and his strategy was a good one. One day regardless, something incredibly did happen. In fact, Brexit took place and the two major British political parties, Labour and Tory, broke apart. 

After some years, an agreement came, thereby, both Labour and Tory parties vanished. Indeed, Nigel Farage did vanquish the two major British political parties.

Nigel Farage became the most important politician in Britain. He became a modern dictator of Britain because of the whole Brexit issue. Therefore, he decided to get rid of Greeks, Portuguese, Spanish and Italian people as they belong to the PIGS (minor countries inside Southern Europe). 

But he did not get rid of his wives. In fact, while male immigrants from Italy, Portugal, Greece, and Spain had to leave all his wives kept working in a new, insular Britain where Nigel Farage became a new kind of dictator, a modern one.

Women from Portugal, Greece, Spain, and Italy not only were slaves in modern Britain.  They also had to do anything Nigel Farage wanted as he deemed British people superior.

One of those girls was Anna. Her husband was waiting on her in Andalucía drinking manzanilla and listening to flamenco, yet Anna kept working in an Irish pub worshipping Nigel Farage.

One day though, whilst she was coming back from work to her flat a group of Japanese rappers kidnapped her.

All of a sudden, Anna saw the way to end her slavery notwithstanding... What is more, because of these Japanese hip-hop stars she thought was going to be able to restore the dignity in London and Andalucía...
