Support “The Monster” Trilogy at Patreon

Dear Amazing Readers and Supporters,

I hope your days are full of MEGA exciting stories and adventures!

I also hope that the novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness”, the first part of “The Monster” trilogy, has given you the opportunity to experience such exciting adventures in your mind.

Nowadays I keep receiving messages from you, dear Readers and Supporters, about the next book of “The Monster” trilogy: When will it be written? When will it be published? And when will you be able to get your hands on it and continue the adventures together with Jessie, Jack, Azul, and Blade of Darkness?

This encourages me to keep writing and developing the story for you to enjoy and learn from.

However, writing novels takes a lot of commitment of time and effort from my side. In order to be able to allocate this time and effort and focus on creating the next books of “The Monster” trilogy, as well as continue doing this together with a collaborative community of you, dear Readers and Supporters, I have just launched the Patreon page of “The Monster” trilogy.

“The Monster: Blade of Darkness” in Ukrainian

Dear Amazing People,

There has been a long period of time when I hadn’t written anything on this blog. There are two reasons for that. The first one has already been mentioned in the recent posts: the writing of my next novel entitled “Simply Love”. The second one is that together with some of my amazing friends and readers from Ukraine, Aleksandra, Alexandra, and Lada, I have been busy preparing a new edition of the Sci-Fi novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” to be available in the beautiful and melodic Ukrainian language.

The Monster in Ukrainian

Recently I came up with a saying: “My reader is my CEO”. It means that I rely on the readers of my books to decide what they want to see and read from my side. Therefore, when Aleksandra and Lada expressed willingness to help me bring the first part of “The Monster” trilogy to their home country by translating into their native language, I gladly agreed. Since then these amazing Ladies have managed to translate the entire novel into Ukrainian, while I have found possibilities for it to be published and available for orders worldwide. Later another wonderful person, Alexandra, joined our endeavour and contributed with reviewing and editing the translated text. And nowadays the book “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” is almost ready to be released.


In order to cover the costs of publishing the first set of books and to gather pre-orders for them, we have launched the crowdfunding campaign “The Monster: Blade of Darkness in Ukrainian”. On its page you can read more about the campaign, its purpose, aims, and benefits for you, and then choose the amount of support you prefer to offer and the respective perk(-s) you will receive. These perks include but not limited to:

+ Gratitude message with you name shared on “The Monster” accounts in Facebook, Twitter, and VKontakte;

+ “The Monster” special edition postcard sent to your postal address;

+ Your name stated in the Gratitude list of supporters in every book;

+ E-book and paperback versions of “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” in Ukrainian with signatures of all co-authors sent to your e-mail and postal address;

+ Exclusive invitation to the official launch event of “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” in Ukrainian with your presentation as the main supporter of this dream coming true.

So, we invite you to go to the page of the campaign “The Monster: Blade of Darkness in Ukrainian”, choose the benefits you would like to receive, and pre-order your own copy of the novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” in the beautiful Ukrainian language. And then please share the campaign with your friends and contacts in Ukraine for them also to be able to pre-order their copies of the book.

We, Alexander, Aleksandra, Alexandra, and Lada, are grateful to you in advance!

With great respect and gratitude,


That Moment…

Dear Amazing People,

Have you ever experienced that moment, when you see your own creation accessible for everyone to enjoy?

For me that moment happened when I saw my book “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” shining on a stand in the Science Fiction section of the University of Oslo Science Library in Oslo, Norway.

The Monster in UiO Science Library

The book has been recently donated to the Library as a contribution to its rich SciFi collection.

So now, if you are around Oslo, you can come to the Science Library at the Blindern Campus of the University of Oslo, borrow the book “The Monster: Blade of Darkness”, and enjoy reading it for free.

With great respect and gratitude,


First Achievement of “Simply Love”

Dear Amazing People,

In the post “Wish You MEGA Great Love!” I mentioned about my intention to write and publish the prequel to my novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” entitled “Simply Love”. And several days ago this intention took a concrete form of the draft of the “Simply Love” novel plot finalized near such a historically significant place as Acropolis in Athens, Greece. This place was chosen specifically to meditate, reflect on my impact and legacy in the world, and write the plan for my new large novel in peace of mind and heart.

Simply Love Plan at Acropolis

“Simply Love” is going to be a romantic novel focused on the attempt to describe sincere and pure love without lies, intrigues, greed, and other unnecessary elements usually involved and focused on in traditional love stories. It will draw parallels between the love of a couple of people and the one of two animals, specifically dolphins. In this way you will see how universal true love really is and how it is ready to embrace any living creature in spite of its species.

Besides that the novel “Simply Love” is going to introduce you to the two characters, who will play one of the key roles in the events to happen in the second part of “The Monster” trilogy entitled “Armageddon’s Blade”. There you will also meet Frederick Miranderik, the founder of the Genetical Enjoyment Company and father of Leonardo Miranderik from the book “The Monster: Blade of Darkness”.

Last but not least, from the novel “Simply Love” you will learn about a number of rapidly developing modern technologies, such as 3D printing, robotic prosthetics, electromagnetic trains, etc., and how they might influence our lifestyle in the nearby future. Many of the thoughts presented there will be based on my own experience in working with these technologies, particularly with 3D printing and robotics.

So, starting from today I begin transferring the plan of the novel “Simply Love” into a concrete text of the future book. I plan to finish it in Russian by the end of this year, translate it into English at the beginning of next year, and publish the book by the 9th of May, 2016.

I will keep you, dear Amazing Readers, updated on the progress of writing the novel “Simply Love” through this blog.

With great respect and gratitude,

This post has a more concrete offer: I am offering you to share the authorship and royalties on the book “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” distributed in Moldova and Romania if you help me translate it into the Romanian language.

The situation is that through the community of Amazing Readers of the novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” it becomes quite well-known in Moldova and Romania, and more and more people request it to be translated into Romanian. I am willing to satisfy this demand, but my skills working with the Romanian language are not sufficient for translating a literary work. That is why I request your help.

In exchange for your support in translating the novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” you will:

+ Be featured as the translator of the book on its cover and title page, as well as in a special gratitude letter to you in the book;

Road to Happiness… and into the Black Hole

Dear Amazing People,

The novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” may be my largest work and success so far, but it is not the only one. In the description of my writing activity at the Author page of this website I mentioned some more novels and short stories written by me back in my childhood and student days, including “Road to Happiness” and “The Black Hole”. These two stories were featured in the book “The Thoughts: the World of My Heart and Soul. The Favorites” that was published in 2007 and is currently available at,, Scribd, and the bookstore here. And now I have decided to share these stories openly on Wattpad for you to enjoy both the ancient legend about the origin of dolphins and the futuristic space adventures on a distant planet for free.

Road to Happiness

Road to Happiness” is a beautiful legend written in the style of Ancient Greek mythology that tells you about how Good can heal even the most deep-rooted Evil. The legend also presents to you an interesting mythological theory of the origin of dolphins, specifically the bottlenose dolphin and the Ganges river dolphin. Thus, if you are interested in ancient empires, Gods and Goddesses, and legends about the origin of life, then “Road to Happiness” is a story you will enjoy. You can read it HERE (in Russian).

Black Hole

The Black Hole” is a science fiction story about people’s first journey through hyperspace to the distant worlds. You will join the crew of an exploratory spaceship that travels through a black hole and finds itself on a faraway planet inhabited by strange life forms and unknown civilization. But the discovery the explorers make there is not so much about that alien civilization, but their own one. “The Black Hole” is what you need if you enjoy reading about space adventures, distant planets, and extraterrestrial life. The story is available HERE (in Russian).

So, enjoy travelling the Road to Happiness… and into the Black Hole!

And I am looking forward to your feedback on these two stories!

With great respect and gratitude,


The Monster in 2015

Dear Amazing People,

The New Year is approaching fast. Soon we will enter the year 2015 full of new inspiration, creations, challenges, and successes. Great results that are consequences of our actions this year await us ahead.

This is true for me and my novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” that has been published this year and has already raised an international community of amazing readers. They have given me very good and inspiring feedback, which motivates me to start the second book of “The Monster” trilogy faster. And it is also great to know that some of the readers were so inspired by my novel that they started working on releasing their own literary creations.

Maria with The Monster

The year 2015 will bring new interesting results. Before initiating the work on the second book, “The Monster: Armageddon’s Blade”, I intend to write and publish a relatively short side novel entitled “Simply Love”. The novel will be included in the book with the same title along with a collection of my love-and-romance poem. The reason to do that is not only to try to explain the intricacies of love relationships in the modern world, but also to introduce several key characters to be featured in the upcoming novel “The Monster: Armageddon’s Blade”, as well as their life stories, and thus expand “The Monster Universe”.

Besides that, the book lovers in Ukraine can expect a special gift in 2015 in the form of the novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” in Ukrainian language. Two of my amazing friends from Ukraine, Lada Merkulova and Aleksandra Polivanaya, have kindly volunteered to bring it to the Ukrainian-speaking readers and have already started translating the novel. Thus the Ukrainian version will then supplement the Russian and English books already on sale and should become available by the end of 2015.

The Monster - ENG - Testimonials - Lada - 1

And that is not all! There will be much more exciting news related to the novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” coming throughout next year. So, stay tuned and enjoy the holiday season!

And I wish you a MEGA wonderful, inspiring, and happy New Year!

With great respect and gratitude,

In order to change that, I have created the preview version of the book with the first five chapters for you to get a feeling of its plot. You can access this version through the homepage of the novel website or directly here.

Now enjoy the book!
