Author Interview: SG - Suicide Game by Haidji

SG- Suicide Game

by Haidji


Eight thousand candidates sign up for the Suicide Game. Only one can win. Their destination: the Night Stadium, a place of makeup and music, fear and adrenaline, blood and romance, celebration and death.
Each candidate has his or her own reason for entering the Game. The Council runs the Game. The outcome of the Game is left to fate...in the laps of the gods. The candidates will jump to their deaths in order to win everything, before capacity crowds in the Stadium. The public follows every jump, live on TV and on their mobile screens, choosing their favorite candidates and betting on their lives.

The Game’s community also includes geeks, mafia, makeup artists, master chefs, models, musicians, ordinary workers, spies, terrorists, and many others. SG - Suicide Game is the story of the candidates’ journey. It boldly imagines a place where death and denial are interwoven with hope, choices and the innate desire for happiness. Impressive in the totality of its vision, it is an exploration of the best and worst things in our lives, nightmares and especially, our dreams

Suicide Game is a metaphor about the society where persons almost kill themselves to achieve their goals and forget their dreams, but, in the book you will find also real love, friendship, loyalty, hope and an unexpected final showing the good essence of the human seed.

Q&A with Haidji



  • What inspired you to write this book?


SG- Suicide Game is based in a dream I had. I woke up and fell asleep this night several times (scared) and the dream continued until the end of the story. As I finally woke up in the morning, still scared, I though: "What the hell what that?" The next thought was: "Write a book about it"
And I started to write the book. It took years.

  • Tell us about your writing space

I write suddenly where ever I am, where ever I can, in my notebook, or if I don't have it with me, newspapers or napkins are good too.
I prefer paper and a real fountain pen that I have always with me, I cannot explain why, it is just like it is. I like the ink color and to draw the letters and words.
