The idea to take titlecard-photos for each chapter of all Oulunsalo Fiction-books occurred to me in 2018, as I prepped for the process of releasing the trilogy on wordpress.com. There needed to be a thumbnail when you share it on social media, and I thought: why not? These stories, these characters, conflicts and settings provoke mental images in my mind all day long anyways. Be nice to express that. Little things from my hometown, Oulunsalo, inspire me more than I'll probably remember ten years from now. I'll have this trilogy to look back on, in case I ever forget.
So this book is different from anything I've released before. It's a book about my books - the absolute power move for a young writer working in fiction. The trilogy was a 5-year project, and here I'll go in-depth about what inspired everything in the magnum opus of my writing career... so far.
I'll be a lot less formal here than I've been on anything else, going over memories and images. To keep up with that spirit, I didn't edit the book at all either. All written in one take. Probably gonna run into some typos, but that doesn't matter. The testimony was complete.
