Mona, the publisher, called me this evening to tell me that she had a copy of Dragoni pe cerul Londrei (Dragons over London) in her hand – just back from the printers! She’s thrilled with it and everyone at Booklet Fiction loves the book and is very excited about it’s future, and potential world domination…
I don’t think Hagrid’s Norwegian Ridgeback has anything to worry about quite yet, but of course we’re all hoping that Romanian kids will enjoy the story of George, Xiaolong and the naughty British dragons for years to come.
So the big event news: the official launch will be at Bookfest in Bucharest on Friday 26th May – just over three weeks away. Eeek! (as George would say).
Here’s the Bookfest website – the list of exhibitors will be posted soon so you can check where Booklet Fiction’s stand is. I’ll post the news here as soon as I know, too.
At the moment I’m due to be ‘on stage’ at 12.00 hrs and again at 16.00 hrs, and there’ll be stuff happening and maybe one or two prizes to be won. I’ll confirm times nearer the event – just in case there’s a change. But come alone, and bring kids!
