Ίχνη Φαντασμάτων Μία υπόθεση του Μαξ Κίλλιαν - 99 cents!

Haunting Clues, the first story in the anthology, Tracking Magic, has been translated to Greek by the fabulous Emman. George!!

The Greek version is for sale exclusively at Smashwords for 99 cents in multiple formats.

For Sony devices, PDF displays best.
For Kindle, use .mobi.
For those just wanting to check out the sheer coolness of Greek, you can view the HTML.

If there is enough interest, it's possible I can convince Emman. George to translate the rest of the stories in "Tracking Magic." I may also make it available on Amazon or other outlets if demand is sufficient.

Here is the story summary:

Quote:
Ο Μαξ αναλαμβάνει να απομακρύνει τα φαντάσματα από μία πολυτελή έπαυλη. Για να αντιμετωπίσει τους νεκρούς, όμως, πρέπει πρώτα να ξεσκεπάσει τα μυστικά αυτών που είναι ακόμα ζωντανοί.

Τα «Ίχνη Φαντασμάτων» είναι το πρώτο διήγημα της ανθολογίας "Tracking Magic". Αν υπάρχει αρκετή ζήτηση, ενδέχεται να μπορούμε να πείσουμε την Emman. George να μεταφράσει και τα υπόλοιπα διηγήματα. Η ανθολογία είναι διαθέσιμη σε ηλεκτρονική μορφή στα αγγλικά και περιλαμβάνει συνολικά πέντε διηγήματα.


My thanks to Katerina Vamvasaki for the fabulous cover.

If there are any reviewers out there who review Greek stories, please contact me for a complimentary review copy.

Emman. George--thank you for all the hard work that went into the translation!

That is so great, Maria, as we do have a few Greek members.

One of them is me, but I guess I don't really count, as I am also ...ahem... the translator

I'm finding that translating is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. So come on, Greek readers, give us reason to translate more! I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did!

Well, you count, but we only give you half points!

All books have to find their audience...the hard part is letting the audience know the books exist!!!

If anyone knows of Greek magazines who might be interested in either reviewing or publishing the story, let me know.

Thanks,
Maria

Okay--in case anyone was waiting, The Greek Translation of Haunting Clues is now available on Amazon.

I know some people don't like to create a new account just for one book. So if you've been on the fence--it's now on Amazon. It should appear on Amazon UK within a week!

Thank you!
Maria
