I finally got to publish the Turkish version of Sweet Nothings with FOTOGRAFEVI
The title in Turkish is Tatli Fisiltilar which means Sweet Whisper ( please note there shouldn't be a dot over the i in Turkish).
The books arrived from the printers in time for me to sign and dedicate a small message to each of the girls featured in the book.
I am hoping by now a book has reached each of them.

appearance of the Icarosaurus




















I thought I would make my first post the cover of my first book.
The title of the book is Schwarzes Meer because it was published in Germany by Mare
In English it means Black Sea.
I had rolled those two words, or its name, around my mouth in several different languages, Karadeniz, Μαύρη Θάλασσα, Marea Neagră, Pontos Euxeinos, Pontus Axeinos, черное море, Mer Noir, Cherno more, Shavi zghva, but I suppose I'd never done it in German.
My original title had been Between Chronicle and Fiction: the Black Sea.....
