"We believe there is a mystical sense in reality, even though we don’t know how to explain, that leads to a real solution to our doubts and problems "
RA -How did you get in the publishing world?
MT -My relationship with books was born, almost without realizing it, in the printing of my grandfather. My senses were intoxicated on smell of ink and paper between literary emotions, a natural and magic throughout my childhood. I remember at that time books and other paper were the natural kings. However, it lacked something really important to me: theinteraction between author and readers.
RA -And your relationship with the Internet?
MT -Years later, the new technologies came. Through them I discovered that although the wonderful smell was gone to press, this new medium allowed me to recapture the magic of yesteryear. And not only that. The most special thing was that I opened a new world to share that magic with hundreds or thousands of people across the network.
RA -What did you do?
MT -Thus, day by day, slowly but surely, I started writing feelings with the keyboard of my computer. First I contacted with my family, friends, and soon after, with other anonymous people who eventually ended up being my riends as well. That was good. However, we sensed something was missing ...
MT -One night, when the Muses walk, thesecretlarevista.com came by inspiration. This new common bond, as a digital magazine, was born with a vocation to be a window open to everyone who would like to add a new joint project.
RA -What has worked?
MT -Years later, with much satisfaction, we can talk about numbers: 5 years on the network, 500 articles in several languages and about 5,000 subscribers. Yet the numbers are just that, numbers. What excites us most is to have undertaken an exciting journey that has come true thanks to the contribution of so many people who have shared with us.
RA -Presence on social networks?
MT -We joined Facebook, Twitter, to Tuenti, Xing, LinkedIn and thousands of people follow us and opt for a better world. People who have personally known of these digital sites have proven to be wonderful and we share a wall and much more. Friendship and respect.
RA -Do you have more projects in progress?
MT -Dreams, as the opportunities, do not stop. Now our commitment is to create a digital publisher to exclusively publish books online. Why? Because there is much hidden talent that deserves and should come to light. Do you want to enter into a new dream?
