To an aspiring writer....

I did something new, I published my first digital Kindle book. Talk about the ultimate in self-publishing!

I have been working on a story that was inspired by "The Count of Monte Cristo", except that I changed the setting to Stalinist USSR circa 1938. Just like "The Count" there is love, greed, jealousy...with forced labor camps (gulag), shtrafbat (penal battalions), and WWII. And of course it's all about revenge.

I finished the first chapter and I decided to try to publish it, but not only to share it, but also to try to find a writer who is willing to take on the challenge of scripting it. I have always heard that writers, who want to work in comics, have a hard time finding artists. Well here is an opportunity. I have a drawn story that I would like to get scripted and if all goes well I would like to get chapter two on the way as well (I am even poking for a title for this project). So if you are an aspiring writer (or if you know of an aspiring writer), give it a look:
