ClaudioHi! I’m Claudio Silvano and this site is dedicated to showcasing and promoting my books and short stories.

The main focus is on my DESTINY OF FIRE trilogy. At present only the first two books are available in both print and as eBooks.

ILLIOM, DAUGHTER OF PROPHECY is the first, published in 2012 on Amazon and in 2013 in print.

KEYS OF AWAKENING is the second, published in 2015 in both print and as an eBook.

The third book, INTO FORBIDDEN LANDS, is currently being written and, when finished, will complete the series.

Illiom is my debut novel.

Since writing Illiom I have also released a number of short stories and a novella – you will find some of these on the FREE STORIES drop-menu above. Please avail yourself to them and feel free to leave a comment, if you feel moved to do so.

Will you like Illiom?

You can easily find out by filling in the REGISTER FOR UPDATES form on the right side-bar and ticking the appropriate box. I will send you the first 2 Chapters (13% of the book) for free. This taste should give you a fair indication of my writing style.

What else will you find on this site?

Here you will find a variety of pieces that may be of interest to you: most importantly you will be able to buy the Illiom paperback or the eBook, you will find information about Illiom and the series, a short bio about me,  some maps that pertain to the series as well as reviews that people have left about the novel on Amazon.com.  There is also a link to some short stories that I have written and which you can read for free – but be quick, as soon as I compile them into an anthology or publish them on Amazon I will have to take them down.

Drop me a line.

Finally you will be able to get in touch with me on the contact page.  If you have any questions or just want to say hi, I’d love to hear from you.  And if you have any feedback, please feel free to give it.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope you enjoy your stay…

Keys of Awakening is here!

Well, it's finally done!
The second volume in Destiny of Fire is out.

I've started to deliver and post out all the books to those of you who have so generously supported me in the Pozible crowd-funding venture.

If you haven't received your copy yet, you will soon enough.

I hope you enjoy the book and will give me some feedback - I've put a lot of love and energy into it.
May it reach and inspire every one of you.

And once again: thank you.
