Dear Amazing Readers and Supporters,
I hope you are enjoying the preparations for celebrating Christmas and New Year. I also hope that the year 2016 was a very productive and successful one. It was so for me and my writing and book-publishing progress, an achievement that became possible due to your kind support, valuable contribution, constructive feedback, and, of course, appreciation of my works. And here I would like to express my gratitude to you for all this!
In 2016 my science-fiction novel “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” reached many more of Amazing Readers in different parts of the world. The books travelled to different places in my home country Moldova, then to Ukraine, Hungary, and even Myanmar. You can see it on the Pinterest page of “The Monster”. Moreover, as part of the serendii stand in the project StadtLesen, the English version of “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” made a tour around Austria and Germany, where it was exhibited in specially arranged public spaces for anyone to read it. For this I thank its publisher, serendii, and my Austrian friend and writer, Wolfgang Stricker.
Also in 2016 a very important achievement happened: the “family” of linguistic diversity of the books “The Monster: Blade of Darkness” was enriched by one more language: Ukrainian. So, nowadays you can find the novel available for reading worldwide in three languages: Russian (original), English, and Ukrainian. This was achieved due to significant contributions of the three Amazing Readers from Ukraine, who are now co-authors of the Ukrainian version of “The Monster: Blade of Darkness”: Aleksandra Polivanaya, Alexandra Pakhurina, and Lada Merkulova. So, thank you for that, dear Ladies and friends!
Finally, the year 2016 saw quite good progress in writing my current science-fiction romantic novel “Simply Love”, the prequel to “The Monster: Blade of Darkness”. I managed to write ten more chapters of its second draft version. In 2017 you can expect me to finish the final draft in Russian, proof-read it, and translate it into English. And, who knows, maybe you will see “Simply Love” already published by the end of 2017.
All in all, 2016 was a very good year for me as a writer largely due to your interest in my works, support offered to me, your feedback shared with me, and, of course, your belief in me and the messages I share with the world through my books. Thank you very much, dear Amazing Readers and Supporters!
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy continuation of writing your wonderful life stories in the New Year!
With great respect and gratitude,
