The television series will center around a young priest who has been outcast from his community. We will follow him on his journey of discovery, forgiveness, and growth as he flees from law enforcement and tries to avoid being captured by a powerful crime family.


The crime/thriller novel will also explore more mystical elements involving a CIA agent who may be more powerful than she ever could’ve dreamed.


The series will be produced by Laurence Bowen, CEO of Dancing Ledge Productions, who has stated, “Hundreds of millions of people have discovered in Paulo Coelho’s writing a universality that feels deeply personal. Here we want to celebrate his vision and weave together elements of his work into a gripping new epic journey. We couldn’t be more excited.” 


Paulo Coelho will personally introduce each episode himself, and help to guide viewers along on the journey. He’s taking a big part in the creative process of the series, ensuring it will be something fans won’t want to miss!

Paulo Coelho Quotes to Help You Find Your Way

Paulo Coelho, the Brazilian lyricist, novelist, and author of The Alchemist and Veronika Decides to Die has some serious pearls of wisdom. Check out these quotes and choose a few to plaster on your walls, notebooks, ceiling, bed frame, laptop and basically anywhere else you feel might need a little boost!


When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.



So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.



Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream.



Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.



There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.



Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.


One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.Don’t waste your time with explanations: people only hear what they want to hear.



Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it.

Six Authors to Follow on Twitter

It seems like everyone is on Twitter these days, and our favorite authors are no exception. Take a break from arguing about that dress for a moment and follow some of these writers! Here are the authors that we find (for better or for worse) the most entertaining on Twitter.

Sherman Alexie

Sherman Alexie is very good at Twitter. The famous Native American writer tweets a mix of pointed political criticism and funny posts like this:

Yes it would, Sherman Alexie.

Paulo Coelho

We’ve professed our love for Paulo Coelho’s Twitter philosophizing before, and we stand by every word. Following Coelho on Twitter is like consulting a mountaintop yogi, only without having to climb the mountain.

Tao Lin

No comment.

Bret Easton Ellis

To be honest, Bret Easton Ellis isn’t that good at Twitter. He’ll fill your feed with his thoughts on random television shows and movies that he’s watching, and you’ll probably disagree with him a lot. Every once in a while, though, he’ll go on a rant that would do your grandpa proud.

It’s actually kind of refreshing to see an author using Twitter like it’s an AOL email address.

Joyce Carol Oates

Oates tweets her fair share of political stuff (and I don’t think she’d get along with Bret Easton Ellis), but she’s at her best when she’s tweeting strange thoughts that read like zen koans.

Serious question: is this a tweet about human-sized cats? Because I think it’s a tweet about human-sized cats.

J.K. Rowling

More than anyone else on this list, J.K. Rowling uses Twitter to interact with her readers.

Many of Rowling’s tweets specifically address questions from fans, which makes following her on Twitter kind of like listening to an ongoing interview. Tweet a question at J.K. Rowling, and let us know if you get a response!
