The Millennium wolves
Sienna’s pulse speeds up as the beautiful, muscular Alpha moves closer as my smartphone begins to beat in my hands while I read.
Tap the screen to open the next sentence (” Every single one of my heightened senses went wild with stimulation”) triggers mood music, highlighting the intensity of their sexual chemistry.
In keeping with the tension between the two characters in the script the hot-pink background flashes across my phone — just to fade when Sienna stops their passion for the time being.
Hello and welcome to “The Millennium Wolves,” an engaging book series written by Sapir Englard, a native of Israel .

It was addicting “The Millennium Wolves” passed the mark of $1 million in sales 10 months after it first appeared in Galatea in October of 2018. By the end of October in 2020, the book had earned $5 million in sales revenues.

“I came up with the idea for”the “Millennium Wolves” story back in high school,” she told me.
Born within Ramat HaSharon, Tel Aviv suburb of Ramat HaSharon to a family of Hebrew speakers, Englard has a gift for languages. She was attracted by English popular literature, particularly vampire and werewolf-themed books, like Nalini Singh’s “paranormal romances.”
“I was reading more in English than in Hebrew at that point, and I felt the need to move to English because it’s more universal. I could express myself better,” she declares. “I wrote my first book during senior year as an experiment. It’s not a good book, but it was my entry into English writing.”
Like many Israeli teens, Englard was conscripted after high school and was assigned two years. Her job was to watch out, using screens that were set up in the “war room,” for suspicious activity in a specific area.
Fortunately, her workplace was peaceful. So , in 2014, she took advantage of the time off to write chapters for “The millennium wolves sapir englard.” In her free time she’d come home and upload her chapter “in draft form because I didn’t have the time or energy to edit them.”

After Englard finished her military service, she completed a one-year college course in the field of electronic music production. She was then accepted into Rimon School of Music. Rimon School of Music in her hometown. The school has an exchange program that is partnered with Berklee.
She also continued to write short stories and novels.
In 2017 Englard was searching online for contests for novelists who are amateurs and found Inkitt his specialization is making use of the latest technology in order to determine bestsellers.
“I uploaded all my books to the site as well “The Millennium Wolves” stuck.’ Inkitt’s algorithm to measure reader intelligence revealed that my book performed extremely well, so I received an email from Inkitt’s team telling me that they would like to publish my book at the time, traditionally.” she added.
“We were in talks about it when the Galatea app was developed, and they decided my book would be great for that.” Her novel is only the very first “season” of the immersive fantasy novel, which fans are able to access by buying points. The team of writers from Galatea’s writing team produced six seasons more that were released with Englard’s guidance and approval.

Her Israeli background was a factor in the character development process in a subtle way she affirms.
“I try to write in a non-black-and-white way because growing up in Israel gives you perspective on the gray. When I build characters, I try to give them depth.” She is determined to improve her craft, and hopes to release a book that she can hold.
