    Hello everyone. I just released my debut novel.

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07N2DWSN6

    Blurb;

    When Alec was 15, he was forced to accept an implant made by the gods - a chip that granted random powers and the possibility to see everyone's status.
    Now, at age 20, his fledgling fire sorcerer ability enables him to get in the prestigious Drexus academy despite his poor upbringing.

    He was hoping to survive first term without lighting too many things on fire but overly flammable ancient books become a small concern when the academy falls under attack by the mysterious Reapers. Men only whispered of in fearful rumors who are looking for two special students and a letter that could change the world.

    Alec and five classmates are chosen to undertake a dangerous journey to seek help. Along the way through, they learn the truth about the chips.

    Can they use the truth to save everything or will it doom them all?

    If you're willing to give it a shot I hope you enjoy it

    Congratulations on your first book!

    There is 120 pages difference between the English and Portuguese versions. Did you do much rewriting? Also did you have a professional translator or did you do the english version yourself?

    Hi. There is a bit of rewriting but those 100 pages dif it's mostly because I didn't link the paperback to the e-book version on the portuguese version. Both versions have around 110,000-120,000 words.

    I just published the portuguese version to buy a few paperbacks for Christmas.

    I translated myself with a friend's help and had a proofreader reading it twice
