Super! Ce mai faceţi, ce mai scrieţi?

Hai să încep eu. Scriu de zor la a doua carte, sper să o termin la timp pentru a o vedea publicată în 2017.
Romanul meu de debut a apărut anul trecut, în regim self-publishing. Iar acum îl promovez în varianta tradusă, pe la agenţii literari din UK.

Voi?

Atunci rămâne stabilit. Ne vedem sâmbătă, 24/11, la Gaudeamus. Ora şi locul exact le hotărâm cu câteva zile înainte.

Am veşti "calde" legate de Gaudeamus. Sâmbătă, 24 noiembrie, vă aştept la ora 16.00 la standul editurii Tritonic. Voi lansa noul meu volum, "Un poliţist în spaţiu".

Huh. A Romanian thread. How convenient for me.

Anyway, I just wanted to ask if anyone is familiar with a Romanian fantasy/sci-fi magazine, called Zin. I got an email from the editor, and he voiced interest in featuring something by me next summer.

Yes, I am familiar with Zin. It's new on the market, the issue #2 will be launched in a couple of days. People behind the magazine are well-known in Romanian fandom, I hope Zin will resist for years on the market.

Thanks. I've sent a PM.

You're welcome.
I didn't receive the PM.

Oh. Well, I'm just glad that I'm getting involved with people who know what they're doing. I could really use some kind of publicity boost. I realise they've only released one issue so far, but would you say they have a decent reader base?

Romanian Fantasy & SF market is compacted. About a quarter of what it used to be two decades ago. Under these circumstances, ZIN magazine is performing well because I can count on a hand all printed SFF publications and I won’t use all fingers.
The second issue, which was just released, has 140 pages and contains, among others, a Nebula-winning story written by William Ledbetter. I have to be honest with you, I also have a short story there, so my perception might be a little bit subjective.
At the end of this week is taking place the biggest annually Romanian Book Fair. I will be there and make some photos, including with ZIN team. Will share them here.

@Elenitsa: mulţumesc pentru prezenţa la eveniment, mi-a făcut plăcere să te cunosc. Mulţumesc şi pentru cărţile primite, arată extraordinar, iar subiectele tratate sunt interesante.
De obicei sunt mofturos când vine vorba de romane istorice, dar "Pribegii mărilor" şi "Vieţi în vâltoare" au reuşit să-mi stârnească curiozitatea la o simplă răsfoire. Abia aştept să le citesc.
 

Happy Thanksgiving
