The Authors

RVK / Rainer von Kürten, born 1966 in Düsseldorf, Germany has been working in the hospitality industry for more than 30 years until he changed his career goals, from top hotel manager to bestseller author. At his last GM position, he had the idea to have a TV series to be filmed in his hotel, which would have been supporting his marketing strategy. For this he searched for someone who could assist him with the script. He found Maxmilian Nemec, alias Omar Zahid, see below, and they wrote 7 episodes of Egeria together, though online, as one worked in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic and the other in Barcelona, Spain.

Unfortunately no producer was ready to step into this endeavour and the script went into the book shelves. Thinking about the time and money spent, it was obvious, that there should be another strategy to get things done successfully. So the author decided to take the script and transform it to a novel, which is a bit trickier, as usually a novel is transformed into a script.

The COVID-19 crisis supported his decision, as hotel businesses were closed for months and time for writing available.

Just to make it clear, the authors do not want to win the noble price in literature, they want the readers to enjoy the stories. Should the book be accepted and positively rated by a lot of people, the second book and the TV serial will be the next step.
