Good Reads featuring Rita Carla Francesca Monticelli

The Italian serialized sci-fi novel "Deserto rosso" (Red Desert) by Rita Carla Francesca Monticelli came to the main e-book sale platforms on June 7th 2012 with its first episode, titled "Punto di non ritorno" (Point Of No Return), with a promotional price starting from 0.82 euros. This episode, with the length of a novella (approx. 20,000 words), is the first one of four parts, which the novel is made of and which will be published along one year. The story of "Deserto rosso", set in a next future, narrates the vicissitudes of a group of people, who, 30 years after the previous failed attempt to reach the red planet, have accepted to dedicate the rest of their life to the exploration of Mars, thus becoming its first colonisers and permanently writing their name in history.

The first episode, "Punto di non ritorno", opens more than 1000 days after the arrival on the planet and is centred on the character of Anna Persson, a Swedish exobiologist, who one morning, before dawn, secretly leaves the habitat and enters the cold Martian desert alone with a pressurized rover, bringing provisions and air for two days only. It seems to be a suicidal act. But, while proceeding in her journey, Anna starts digging deep in her memory, thus recalling all those events, which have brought her to that point, what and whom she has left behind and letting us glimpse the reasons of her actions. "Deserto rosso - Punto di non ritorno" is a sci-fi story, which allows the reader imagining themselves among the dust and rocks of Mars, among its enormous flatlands and insidious canyons, half way between the desire to explore and the desire to survive. But it is also the story of a selfish woman that, at the same time, is lacking self-confidence, who, despite her controversial choices, has stubbornly continued to go on, without regret, even risking her own life, in order to demonstrate to herself and others that her life was actually destined to have a bigger purpose. Her dark side slowly emerges by means of her memories, while she faces without fears the unknown of a cursed planet, which somehow continues to take away the lives of those trying to discover its secrets. Filtered by her erratic emotions and her deeply rooted prejudices, the events are shown to the reader, thus involving them in an alternation of past and present by means of a gradual crescendo that drives them to the epilogue, from which the rest of the novel will derive.

"Tracy Woody Chiudiamo questa rubrica degli artisti selezionati da Sonicbids con un po' di elettronica e dance. Vi presento Tracy Woody, cantautrice dai mille talenti del North Carolina (USA), che debutta nella scena musicale col suo EP "Sweet Beat Of Love" con al suo interno, oltre alla traccia omonima, altri tre brani, tra cui "Your Love" e due remix. La Woody ha iniziato il suo viaggio musicale più di dieci anni fa grazie alla musica religiosa, cantando ai matrimoni e per gli amici. E questa influenza religiosa la si può sentire anche in "Sweet Beat Of Love", dove essa si fonda ai ritmi dance elettronici e ad un potente canto di stampo puramente pop. La stessa Tracy afferma che la sua ambizione quale musicista è ispirare la gente e sembra proprio riuscirci con questi brani, dove traduce religiosamente la musica nel linguaggio universale della sala da ballo, utilizzando l'elettronica senza che questo vada a discapito della sua voce unica,,," - Rita Carla Francesca Monticelli, Anakina.Blog (Aug 31, 2011)
