Monika Šimkovičováabout this book: After finishing a short story Roden24, readers started to ask me, where was the rest. Everyone expected I purposely published only one story and left the rest for later. There was "no rest" though. That was it. A short story. Nothing else.
The people did not believe.
"So many good characters in it Monika"
"A plot, that has just started to unfold and there is "no rest"?"
One day, I started to think. Would it be possible to expand the story and write the whole book? Are the characters interesting enough? Can I make their stories deeper?
So I tried. One day I sat down to the computer and started to type. After several hours, I was completely in. They were right!
Many readers say, this is a story they wanted to read about for years. Others, it is a topic they wanted to write about. It is something about us, humans, we think about sleeping a lot.
The story is about Vigils - people, who don't need to sleep anymore. Their lives become one never ending day full of actions and good things. But is it true? Is sleeping so wasteful? Are dreams we have really for nothing?
This is not a high-tech sci-fi story but rather a very human one. A story, where people believe a sleep is stealing their time, their opportunities to live fulfilling lives. As always, things are never black and white though. This time, they are actually quite purple...
