Well done Clapas on having your book published.

Please let us know when it comes out in English. :D
Thank you for your nice comment Big Saint, however, for lack of commercial relay and especially of talent on the part of the author ( :oops: ) I am afraid that it will never be translated ;)
Somehow I think your English is much better than my French :!: :lol:
Thank you but I must admit that google translator helps me a lot ;) ;)

Currently reading The Third Man by Graham Greene, on which the great film of the same name was based. Although written with the film in mind, it reads like a novel.

Yes, that is a First Edition but with a facsimile dustjacket (an original in that condition could set you back £100 or more!).

(The strange reflections are due to the protective cover)

I’m reading the third novel of Stormlight Archive, a serie of epic fantasy written by Brandon Sanderson. Very well written.

In the past two weeks I have finished reading three mystery
books and just finished a novel by author Sandra Brown.
"Slow Heat In Heaven" where Heaven is a small town in Louisiana.
It was an unusual story line, well written, however my comment
is that I believe women authors have a totally better handle
on the romantic side of writing than men. This one-wow!
