Minigrooves banner

Minigrooves — The project started back in March 2012, with this fundamental idea: to offer short stories that can be enjoyed in a relatively short amount of time, like during a break from work, while commuting, while sitting in a waiting room, and so on. The idea came to me while admiring the work of some illustrators I discovered by complete chance while browsing the Web. I noticed how powerful was the immediacy of ‘getting’ their style and inspiration simply by examining a few samples of their work. It’s happened with musicians as well. I thought I could try to do something similar with what I do best — writing. Hence, the short story format, the watercolour-with-words, the ‘minigroove’.

Volume 1 and Volume 2 of Minigrooves are currently available on the iBooks Store. (Requirements: an iOS device with iBooks 1.5 or later and iOS 4.3.3 or later, or a Mac with iBooks 1.0 or later and OS X 10.9 or later). More details about this ongoing project can be found in this article. An overview of the extra contents of the ebooks can be found here for Volume 1 and here for Volume 2.



Vantage Point magazine — A compact digital magazine available on iOS that works as supplement and extension of this website. On every issue of Vantage Point you’ll also find an episode of Low Fidelity, a novel I’m publishing in serialised form (more information is available at the Crosslines//Low Fidelity website and I’ve talked about the project in more detail in this article).

Current status as of November 2016: Closing down.

Crosslines — From the What is Crosslines page: “Since March 2013, Crosslines has become a part of Low Fidelity — another literary project I first conceived in late 1995 and did not update much after 1999. As work on Low Fidelity has resumed after a significant creative drought, Crosslines is now an online place which serves as introduction and ‘further reading’ of the world presented in the novel. It’s a sort of Chapter Zero, but since it cannot be described as being either a prologue or epilogue, I decided to use the term exologue, meaning ‘outside the narration’.”

Low Fidelity is currently published in serialised form on Vantage Point, a compact digital magazine for iOS I launched in 2014. 

Current status as of November 2016: After publishing the first 23 episodes in serialised form, I’m writing Episodes 24 to 32. The first book in the Low Fidelity series will then be published as a whole in the first quarter of 2017.
