Fiction Feature: Adudan by Dario Giardi

For this blog tour, we have an interview with Dario Giardi, the author of Adudan.
What was the hardest thing about writing this book?

I have written the tourist guides Bretagna: natura, arte, poesia e mistero tra oceano e cielo and Roma: misteri ed itinerari insoliti, published by Polaris (www.polaris-ed.it/).
Adudan is my debut Novel.
I have decided to take a gamble with self-publishing on the Amazon platform.
America is the land of opportunity. Self-publishing has made many dreams come true. I'm sure it's a positive sign of changing times and of the direct power that new technologies give readers, bypassing the old, traditional publishing system to give a voice to what for me is the only criterion for publishing success: the public.
Which of your characters can you relate to the most?
Marcel Guivarch, a Breton writer who is able to immerse himself in the memory of an ancestral past. 
Which part of the book was the easiest to write?
The part set in Brittany
Which actors would play the main characters in the movie version of the book?

I love the movie "The Lake House" and its magical and dreamy atmosphere. The Lake House is about possibilities and impossibilities and the decisions we make on our way to finding the right person.
Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock represent the perfect cast for a Adudan Film Adaptation.

Which songs would be on the soundtrack of the movie version of the book?

Promise by Cecilia Luce, a friend of mine.
At this link you can see two booktrailer entirely produced by me with this soundtrack.

 
Any future books in the works?
A Romance...very special;)
ABOUT DARIO GIARDI:
 

Hello, my name's Dario Giardi.I was born in Rome in 1977, I work as a researcher in the fields of environment and energy, although my true passion is writing. I have written the tourist guides Bretagna: natura, arte, poesia e mistero tra oceano e cielo and Roma: misteri ed itinerari insoliti, published by Polaris (www.polaris-ed.it/). Adudan is my debut novel. It's an urban fantasy which I think is very innovative and special for the message it contains, but I'll leave you to judge for yourselves.
I have decided to take a gamble with self-publishing on the Amazon platform. America is the land of opportunity. Self-publishing has made many dreams come true. I'm sure it's a positive sign of changing times and of the direct power that new technologies give readers, bypassing the old, traditional publishing system to give a voice to what for me is the only criterion for publishing success: the public.
 My favorite quote?"Per aspera ad astra." My favorite genre?Urban fantasy and paranormal romance.
For me, imagination is the principal source of human happiness - Keats was right when he said "The imagination is like the dream of Adam: Adam awoke, and found that it was truth." An epic story isn't always so far away from everyday life, and fiction can come close to reality.
The secret to my creativity?As Albert Einstein once said: "The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources."


ABOUT THE BOOK:


“Only when you no longer fear death will you be able to write your own destiny”

Marcel lives on a small island off the coast of Brittany. He dreams of becoming a famous writer but in his dreams he discovers his destiny and his true identity.
A dream journey that takes him to the magical world of Atlas. There he finds out that he was Railen, the elite guard of princess Adudan.

For Marcel those visions are the first piece of a story whose roots go back to the dawn of time.
Memory by memory, he begins to piece together his past, narrating to us the events that forced him to part with his beloved Adudan.

Dogged and constantly threatened by the Draconians, a cruel alien civilisation, the two lovers must separate in order to protect the Crystal of Atlas.
But they can’t run forever, the day will come when the Draconians manage to track down the Crystal; and when that day comes mankind will have to be ready and trained to defend itself and write its own destiny.
