Getting close to publication day!

The book is going to print next week… here’s a sneak preview of the cover, and more information about the book.

Dragons - Booklet catalogue

As you can tell, the book is mostly for Romanians learning English, but it would be good for English speakers learning Romanian, too!

For native English speakers, this is the translation of the boo blurb you can see above:

Dragons over London  We begin in the 11th century. After travelling around the world, the imperial Chinese dragon Xiaolong settles in the Tower of London, not long after it was built by William the Conqueror. But London’s own dragons do not want a foreigner on their patch and, for many centuries, do their best to kill the Chinese invader. With so many enemies around, Xiaolong badly needs a bodyguard. And a friend. These roles are taken on with pride by George, only a common-as-muck mouse who lives in the Tower, but the most brave and loyal companion of all. Nearly 400 generations of Georges devote their lives to Xiaolong, from George I in 1086, until today when we meet George CCCLXXXVIII. An action adventure written with humour, Dragons over London is a wonderful opportunity to read an alternative history of London (almost entirely based on known facts), with a dramatic climax in the skies over Britain’s capital city.

Published by Booklet Fiction, Dragoni per cerul Londrei will be out in the next few weeks – when I have a precise date I’ll let you know, of course. And when we have some events organised – readings at schools and bookshops, for instance – I’ll tell you about those, too.

If you’d like a reading at your place, let me know!
