Dear reader,

how wonderful that you found your way here.

My name is Christoph Klinger and I am something like the creative mind behind 'The Holy Loneliness Collective'. All texts are written by me and I also compose and produce the music. The illustrations are done by Franziska Blinde.

'The Holy Loneliness Collective' is an interactive story that continues to be told in small episodes. 'Interactive' means that there is no predetermined plot line. Unlike a novel, each reader has the opportunity to influence how the story develops. This is done via comments or polls - here on Substack, but also on Facebook and Instagram. So anyone willing is more than welcome to be not only a silent reader, but become part of the story.

Another important ingredient is the music. 'The Holy Loneliness Collective' is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal and everywhere where music is to be found. But also here on Substack you will be able to hear all the songs - and furthermore even sketches, rehearsal recordings and insights into the production.

If you're interested in the illustrations, you should definitely take a closer look at the work of Franziska Blinde. Here are a few samples.

I'm happy about everyone who reads along, listens in or even gets involved in the story!
