Long time ago I started writing for this blog. I had a project. To start translating my stories from Italian to English, or just start new stories more related to UK or USA characters, cities and publish it. Usually is not simple to get the right target changing language.

I have an English free short tale available on Apple iBookStore.

I have another one of my stories that could be translated in English and published because it’s based in a London of the future, but it’s not just a walk to translate, edit and promote an English novel.

Last year I was in the wonderful London. I fell in love with that city. Just three days… too few, so I’d like to come back there.

This morning I read a review … well, review is a big word considering the following sentence: “The book is not very good.” Stop.
