    Hi, I am one of the oldest struggling writers in the world.
    I have just published my new book. (*No, it's not about passports and driver licenses.)
    I am not asking you to buy it from at least two (2) reasons.
    1 - it's not in English
    2 - it's not even available yet.

    It's a kind of self/publishing thing - so lame and pathetic. The copies are waiting in printing facilities till I pay other half of printing/design/etc costs.

    But it has its ISBN and CIP in National Library, all right.

    Covers-->>>

    I was not convinced you had read a book let alone written one.
    Well done!

    I used to daydream about being a writer when I was young: just me and an ordinary typewriter - having the whole day to myself and my fantasy - but I could never come up with anything interesting to write about. Good luck with your book, vandervelde! ๐Ÿ™‚

    It's a good feeling isn't it..., I think. I got the bug after the first one and now am on number 11 in the series. The midnight oil has been burning for a few years now; there is it seems no peace for the wicked. Anyway much power to your elbow; will there be a number two?

    It's about...
    Part One
    Postmodern author P.C. wakes up by terrible dream early (early for him, that is, since he is a writer supported by his sister musicologist) in the morning to go to national Radio Station in order to take part in cultural programme - panel discussion abut relations beteeeen realism and postmodern prose. He is by the way famous by his postmodern novels in newly found manuscripts are found...

    In the midlde of the show he gets call on his mobile: his sister's number. He gets bad feeling. On the phone is a member of national security who informs him that writer's sister is in the police an that he should come to collect hithertho hidden legacy of their family.

    Writer PC excuses himself to stunned other guests and the host in radio studio and rushes to the police facility to learn that he and his sister, children of the communism whose parenst were respected advisers of late presient Marshal Titoi - that they had other relatives, namely great-Oncle and Great-Aunt who belonged to Chetniks, defeated movement in WW2. It was kept in secrecy until now, when all files were shown to the public...

    It comes as a shock to P.C. and as a nice and desired surprise to his sister, who is better adopted to transition in ex-Yugoslavia's land named Serbia...

    He has just tranaslated a novel about organ trade in Kosovo by some Spanih writer Gutierrez and cannot find a publisher. Neither for his own novel...

    P.C. who has always loathed Chetniks and has always regarded himself as a liberal democrat now gradually begins to shift his views. Fable from his own posmodern novels began to haunt him...


    Part Two
    From first-person-narrative: a view from P.C.'s sister D.C.
    Her relation with secret service is revealed.

    Part Three
    From first-person-narrative: 2 secret agents described their lives and how they recruited P.C. sister and why they want to prevent translation of the novel about organ trade from Spanish to be published. At the end of the chapter they both reveal they actually had stolen organs in their bodies...

    Part Four
    Again in first-person-narrative Spanish writer Gutierrez describes his fascination with Serbia and who he actually hates most of the things real Belgrade dwellers think would impress foreigners.

    Part Five
    ("transcriptions of P.C.'s conversation and copies of his mails with various publishers on attempt to publish his novel.)
    P.C. says he cannot find a publisher and decides to publishes his novel as "samizdat". This is in fact real conversations I had in order to get this novel published, but I changed names in Postmodern way.

    Part VI

    It's my number 8.
    I am not so exhilarated by pure fact that I published something, rather frustrated that it was my first-ever samizdat...

    Why not post a picture of Trump's beheaded toupee in your hand to boost ratings a bit.

    Or go sit at a sports event and do the Hokey Pokey during the national anthem.

    Try to move with the times and focus on what others are focused on.
