.:The Night of Elisa - A Gothic Novella:.

Sometimes, life and love can follow the most obscure paths, just as they did for Elisa.

Her life becomes a dark, cold, lonely cage the day the devil takes her as his wife. He robs her of almost everything she holds dear: her health, her wealth and what is left of her family.

Trapped between the nuances of life and beyond-life, Elisa finds herself struggling for a better tomorrow. With her health deteriorating, how will she summon the courage and strength to stand her ground? And how far will she go in the pursuit of a dream?

Embark with Elisa on this puzzling Gothic adventure set in the late Victorian era, between the world of the Living and the picturesque, melancholic Duskland.

"It is strange... How can I 'go home' when I have no memories of that place at all?"
- Elisa

"Stop it, Elisa. You're bleeding, my darling!"
- Leonhard

"Ah, love, the biggest poison and most dangerous drug there is."
- Dr. Charles

From the Author: The Night of Elisa is more than my debut fiction book. I consider it the beginning of my self-publishing Ficion brand "Tragic Books". It is an experimental work, disobeying rules of traditional publishing, where most books needs to be within certain standards (genre and genre-traits or ingredients, word count, use or no use of illustrations, etc.) to make it to the industry.

The Night of Elisa is untraditionally crafted to maximize the storytelling and heighten imagination. From the way it is written to its illustrations, every single element has been put together to bring to you the essence of this unique world in which the story is set as well as the essence of its characters.

Another important aspect of this work is the subtext: all the nuances, symbolism and hidden meanings in between the lines. There is precisely where the darkest aspects of the story lie and where the most attempt readers will get interesting moments of discovery (and self-discovery).
