Four Letters

Book 4. Four Letters 

Revenge, this is fun. 

Revenge is never the answer, but at times it is the only solution.  

What a twisted mind I had writing this book. How would you get revenge on a person who cheated on you? I mean come on. If there were no consequences, I am sure we would have millions of ways to achieve this.  

I don’t know why this is, but I have a streak of using strong, young female leads. This was the first of 3 I believe. In this book a young woman takes revenge on the last four guys she dated because the last one hurt her badly.  

Sounds easy enough. Ah, but how she took each one and how she manipulated them is where it got interesting. Our character used her wit and manipulation to gain the upper hand over her male victims.  

I had fun. 

I assume that in a way I really did channel my inner young woman somehow. The fun ways I came up with to get revenge on the boys were creative even if I do say so myself.  

There was no hidden inspiration behind this book. Honestly, I came up with the concept of the Four Letters and how the main character writes letters to the four boys that hurt her. It was to be simple enough but it turned into a much more elaborate story. Instead of a weak young woman forgiving and moving on, she fought back.  

While I am hoping that I do not give inspiration for revenge, I hope it gives an outlet for young women to read about revenge instead of acting it out.  

Being a single dad. 

For much of the book, I was able to relate because I was a single dad of two. In a way I still am. My son and daughter are older now but when they were young, I sure heard some interesting stories. I assume that my daughter’s heartbreaks came through in this story of revenge and how she may have wanted to treat her exes. Being a single dad of a teenage daughter had its challenges and its share of stories.  

So here I had fun and went back in time to high school and remembered what was important to myself and my friends at the time. Also, what was unique about this book was the four boys. They are all different and come from different backgrounds. I was able to reach into different psychological aspects of their lives.  

I was also incredibly happy with how the story took a few unexpected turns and how it comes full circle in the end.  

The back of the book.  

Lina learns the dangers of social media when her ex-boyfriend posts some of her private pictures online. Although devastated and hurt, Lina develops a plan for revenge. Enduring pain and ridicule from classmates at school she plots her scheme for the four boys she dated in the past year. Lina decides to get even with her exes and kidnaps them. During their captivity, she teaches the boys a few lessons and forces them to read out the letters she had prepared for them. While each boy reads out the letters under torturous conditions, she contemplates the end as the boys hang on for dear life.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.

  1. Typical of parents when they start saying, “I told you…”
    Something I’ve heard from my parents, too. When I became a mother, and at one point, had told my daughter, “I told you…”, she stopped me and said, “Mother, it’s not going to do me any good if you will start telling me “I told you…”. That’s when I realized that that was what I also felt when my parents said the same to me back in the old days.

    Well, I’ve learned my lesson. I found ways to better communicate to my daughter the way that she’ll not be hurt more and be willing to listen and obey. And it worked for both of us.

    I enjoyed your story (via the preview), Sir. 😊
