It has been a while since we have last talked to one another.
Allot has happend in that month of radio silince, but it includes allot of awsomeness.
First of my Dragon sister/mentor/dear friend and best (wo)men at my upcomming wedding , Patty van Delft has done it again. she has finished the third and last instalment of her Dragan Duma Trilogy!
Which consists of Dragan Duma She who listens, Dragan Duma Allies and Traitors , and Dragan Duma the Black Crystal . ( litteral translations from dutch )
Now the challenge is on getting an English translation and bringing Dragan Duma to the masses.
I have already slightly embarked on this little challenge, which has slowed down Isolation just a little bit.
But i love being envolved in working on the English translation of the first Dragan Duma instalment, and hopefully we can bring you the full english version as soon as possible.
My dear friend Jeffrey Debris has also collaborated with Patty on a lecture called from Fan to Fiction at the second edition of Squeeckers, which was a small convention for fan fiction writers and everyone who loves to be creative when it comes to fanfiction/writing novels/drawing/ anime & manga and so on.
The lecture focussed on helping these creative minds who like to make fan fiction, to stimulate them and giving them the handles they need to work towards and maybe making their own stories which might lead to a full manuscript and possibly getting their work published in the future.
It has been a very bussy couple of weeks as I also made my way towards the Book presentation of the last instalment of the Dragan Duma Trilogy ” Dragan Duma Het zwarte kristal”
Which is in stores since Yesterday the 6th of June 2016 and is rapidly taking over the internetz.
The book presentation was at de drieluik in the keppler street in The Hague
from the outside you would of not known how amazing the location of the book presentation was.
As from the outside it looked al modern but the moment you passed the treshold it was like you had just walked into a more modern version of Dragan Duma as if the two worlds had colided and had perfectly merged inside de drieluik.
It was a very amazing afternoon where Family, Friends and Fans co-existed in an amazing event which marked the ending of an amazing journey and Trilogy and the start of something that could become Greatness and maybe a best seller in the making.
Only time will tell and we are hoping for some great revieuws in the next couple of weeks for the new instalment.
and the only thing i would like to spoil to you all is the honorable mention i got from Patty in her words of gratitude of the black crystal, YES achievement unlocked, my name in a published book!
After all this crazyness and these amazing weeks i have finished the final beta chapters of my Beta chapters that will be making their way on to the Blog as soon as possible.
They are now in the more then capable hands of Hailey George, and Jeffrey Debris who is also one of my mentors and trust me the force is strong with this one!
I shall speak to all of you soon as the last Beta chapters will be making their way towards you soon!
