SURREAL ADVENTURES FROM THE SOUTH SANDWICH ISLANDS

A cocktail party invitation


Ms Leni Qinan is proud to announce that she has successfully completed and copyrighted her last novel “The Diary of a slave”, inspired by and dedicated to someone who couldn't bother reading it, and is undoubtedly pissed off at the author for having failed to tame her wild spirit and submit her rebel soul.

6 months deprived of sleep, writing and struggling with translations, typos and formats for countless hours, to produce:

173 pages
2.040 paragraphs
5.326 lines
38.677 words
215.088 characters

You are cordially invited to the cocktail party that will be offered to all those friends, playmates, neighbours and acquaintances who have been patiently and eagerly waiting for this moment.
Thank you very much for your constant love and support.

Wednesday, April 30th
7:00 – 10:00PM - South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands Ritz Hotel, Grytviken

No Gor players or weapons allowed.

I will be very honoured if you ever feel inclined to read my humble book. Reviewed and complete Spanish and English versions are available to anyone who wants to read them
(top left links).

It certainly is a good night for me, because I am definitely free now and this is great news, wherever I am!

The intro is missing, but the song is incredibly beautiful and means a lot to me tonight.

Well this time I am going to have my comment in English because a lot of your readers can be interested what I would like to say.

Well first of all congratulations and congratulations for the nice slave diary !! Well I need to say that I have already read it and I deeply recommend that everybody do it !!! Thanks Leni to make such a nice description of the quotidian life (well this time was not so normal, laughing !!!) and give extraordinary description of the situations !!!

Now we will be waiting for the next story, book, history.....


Big hug and see you in the presentation of the book hehehehe

Hi Sedi!

Thanks for your 2 nice and sweet comments. I'm very glad that you're attending the party! As a tester of my new books I really appreciate your enthusiasm, encouragement and opinions. THANK YOU.

As you know and can be read in the book, my slavery period was really hard. I wrote down my experience, which was not nice at all. It really happened, albeit in a virtual world. Writing it has been a part of my healing therapy. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

But just my view, some girls like it. I personally don't. As you know, I have lost track with Gor and also with my exMaster -and this makes me a bit sad, but it's better not to be in touch-.

Petons ben forts.

XXX. Leni

Congratulations Leni, on the completion of your book. When I first met you, you had just started writing it (I think). I have been with you along the way since then and at times the intensity of your experience with the book was overwhelming.
I truly hope you get lots of readers and the success you really deserve.

Leni Qinan said...

Hi Tom!

Nice to have you back commenting! I thought you were lost somewhere in the net!

You helped me overcoming my tough experience and my uneasiness and now I’m over it. I really appreciate it.

I just wanted to share this adventure with my readers, I hope you enjoy it!

XXX. Leni.

¡Enhorabuena Leni!, me ha entusiasmado tu "Diario de una esclava".

Aunque terminas tu novela diciendo que "por encima de todo, necesito ser libre", me parece que tu verdadero problema es que no haces mas que rodearte de tíos sin la suficiente categoría (ya sea de variedad "master" o de la de "pringao" que necesita que se descuelgue un ascensor para darse cuenta de que es lo que verdaderamente estás pidiendo).

De la lectura del Diario he sacado bastantes enseñanzas que me han inspirado; enseñanzas que me permitirán no caer en los mismos errores de tu "querido master" si finalmente, como espero, me pides alguna vez ser mi esclava...no puedo evitarlo, me gustan las chicas "rebeldes e insubordinadas".

Leni Qinan said...

Hola Max!

Antes que nada, te agradezco mucho que te hayas tomado el tiempo y la molestia de leer mi libro. No sabes cuánto te lo agradezco. Estoy muy contenta.

Te mereces un premio: A lo mejor te pido ser tu esclava durante cinco minutos (no te lo creas, antes te hago una tarta de manzana o te bailo el hulahula, pero no pienso ser una esclava ni un minuto más de mi Second Life ni de mi Real Life!!).

Sobre la categoría de los tíos que frecuento… siento decirte que el mercado masculino no está precisamente en alza –mejorando lo presente- y que una a veces tiene que bajar el listón y conformarse con lo que hay. Te consiento que te metas con mi exMaster, pero no con Bob el del ascensor. Al fin y al cabo, sólo necesitaba un empujoncito, aunque fuera vertical.

Me alegra escuchar que has sacado alguna enseñanza de mi libro. No te acostarás sin saber una cosa más. Pero nunca seré tu esclava!!!

Bss en los morros. Leni.

Hello sis! Congratulations!

I checked your blog before I write something on my own and whoah, what I just read is the greatest news I ever heard since the start of my blogging days! Great! Great!

Too bad I'm too far away to see you in the limelight at your cocktail party though (*sobs*) How was the party though? Do post some photos please? :-)

But will definitely download your diary after this :-)


I have missed you dear! :-) Gotta check the other blogs I missed! :-)

Proud to be your friend,

xxx Grass (*not in the least surprised at your success*)

Felicitaciones Leni!! Me imagino la sensación de haber terminado un libro....(casi casi como parir a un hijo, no?...jajaja).

Saludos y esperaremos tus nuevas obras=)

Hey Grassy!!!

Nice to see you’re back! I hope you enjoyed your holidays and weddings!

Thanks a lot for commenting, dearie, you were often in my thoughts these days!

This has been a sort of liberation, Grass; a therapy; I’m not used to write novels –I have another one that took me one month, last year in summer-. I usually do short tales that I write in 10-15 days, and the way I have written the diary was very arduous, but I could do it at last!

Thanks for reading it, honey. I really appreciate. My best reward is to have readers and to share with them the things I write. Writing would mean nothing if you guys would not be on the other side.

And about the cocktail… yes, it was a great success! Sorry but pics were not allowed –some famous people and many secondlifers fiercely defending their privacy, lol-

I am also VERY proud to be your friend, Grass, you are very nice and thoughtful and a very faithful, loyal commenter. I appreciate.

XXX. Leni.

Queridísima Pía! ¡Qué alegría tenerte de nuevo por aquí! Aunque sé que me visitas con frecuencia, y te lo agradezco muchísimo.

La sensación de haber acabado este libro no es solamente de satisfacción por haber terminado un trabajo de 6 meses, sino también una liberación mental. Ahí he enterrado una serie de emociones que no quiero que vuelvan a salir a la superficie. Pero sí, acabar un libro es como tener una criatura entre tus manos… una sensación indescriptible.

Gracias por comentar, me encanta que vuelvas por aquí y espero que te guste el libro. Compartir estas cosas con mis lectores –ya que no puedo hacerlo con los editores- es mi mayor satisfacción. Como le decía a Grass, sin vosotros los lectores, escribir libros no tendría ningún sentido.

Un beso!
Leni.

*Leni opens the blog window... looks left, then right... "hm no trace of that one..." and then shouts: MOCKY!!!! WHERE ARE YA???"

Fernando said...

Creo que ha sido una catársis personal. Te admiro por ello,por el esfuerzo y por el ejercicio de introspección.

Y hablando de términos griegos... Un día de estos te llegará la ataraxia.

Un beso, querida Leni.

Leni Qinan said...

Fernan!!! Por fin!!!

Pensé que te habías ido navegando por esos mares -quién sabe, igual te veo algún día por las South Sandwich con tu velero-.

Desde luego, ha sido una catarsis personal. Ahí he dejado muchos suspiros, emociones, dolores y alegrías que no lamento, pero que ya no quiero más. La palabra exacta me la has dado tú: catarsis. Escribo por placer, sí, pero también para sacar las cosas que tienen que salir del alma. Después me siento la misma, pero renovada.

La ataraxia me ha llegado ya. Desde el día en que puse el último punto y me dije "Ya está".

Gracias por tu maravilloso comentario. Otra vez me quedo llena de paz y tranquilidad.

Un beso muy fuerte, y me alegro mucho de que hayas venido!

Leni.

What?? I missed a party? In Grytviken?? hrm

Anyway, congratulations Len. Great job!

Leni Qinan said...

Hi Mocky!

Yeah sorry to say that you missed the party. In Grytviken, my home town :(

Lots of cool chicks, booze and fun. Sorry dude, but we all ended dancing naked on the beach doing naughty things and everybody was asking "wth is Mocky?" but I guess you were in the 7th galaxy, weren't you? hahahaha.

Anyway, there will more parties: one for each book I write and I hope you don't miss them in the future ((or I'll pull you by your ears!))

Nice to get your feedback. Seeya!

Len.
