Even though Osiris was an avid storyteller since he could talk, he only dared to commit his stories to paper after his future wife basically manhandled him to. The two of them are currently living their happily ever after in Kassel, Germany, doing so under the stern but loving surveillance of their cat.
Osiris leads an unassuming day life as a specialist accountant, but in his spare time writes fantasy, science fiction and historical fiction with gay romance themes, having a ball herding plot bunnies with his congenial wife.

Apart from Goodreads, you can find them at their official homepage, where they post all current information about their books: Brackhaus.com

I know you have just read 'Softpaw', so I am pretty sure that's the book you are asking about.

Writing the entire book was fun, really. But if I were to pick a singular favourite part, in all honesty - it would be research.

Because we got lucky and spend Christmas a few years ago in Paris, visiting all the (existing) sites of the book. I still remember standing on the footbridge over the Port de l'Arsenal one very cool December morning with my wife, taking pictures of the spot where the 'Cullinan' would be moored, both of us grinning like idiots.
It was a lovely trip for us, and the joy carried through the entire writing process. (less)

Solid advice and techniques in excellent brevity. It covers the very basics, so while worth skimming every other year as a refresher, not much meat on the bones unless you just start out.

“He wondered where the difference was between the good guys and the bad guys if their means were all just born out of perceived necessity and their goals by the unquestioned orders they had been given.”
Osiris Brackhaus, Lovers in Arms

“Whenever doubts become a crime... whenever parents become afraid their children might turn them in; a country where the power of the government is mired inextricably with the jurisdiction and the executive, where you have three secret polices spying on the population and people disappear without a word, that is not my country... My country and Nazi Germany, those are two very different places. And I dearly hope I’ll live to see the day when the latter one falls.”
Osiris Brackhaus, Lovers in Arms

“So when I saw you lying in the shed there, I thought that even God couldn't be that cruel. You were everything I ever asked for – so maybe you could also be the love of my life...”
Osiris Brackhaus, Lovers in Arms

“A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.”
Albert Einstein

“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”

Erst einmal - gern geschehen! Und dann - die print und 'extended version' von Lovers in Arms kommt bald raus. Danach wird es erst einmal eine Weile ruhig sein, ich fange gerade erst mit dem nächsten an. Mal sehen, wie schnell das dann an den Markt kommt. Aber ich werde es auf jeden Fall hier anmelden!

Danke für das Interesse, und mehr 'pressure' als ich selbst kannst du mir gar nicht machen. :)

Tina Danke für's adden. :) Bin schon mal bei Twitter über dein Buch gestolpert - ich glaube, zu der Zeit hat Aleks es gelesen - war mir aber nicht schlüssig, ob ein WWII-Buch wirklich etwas für mich ist.
Ich hab dann erst Aleks Skybound gelesen und war sehr positiv überrascht. Im Nachhinein hätte ich mir denken können, dass deutsche Autoren natürlich ganz anders an die Sache herangehen, als Amis oder Briten. :)

Mark hat mich jetzt wieder an dein Buch erinnert und es mir wärmstens ans Herz gelegt. Ich bin gespannt. :)


Osiris Brackhaus Danke ebenso, und noch einmal danke für die liebe review!
