A website dedicated to providing services for authors and publishers who want to translate their stories and gain a whole new readership and set of imaginations to penetrate.

Big News! My newest project NovelTranslations.com is up and running!

Novel Translation is aimed to provide authors and publishers with a stress-free way to get their works into another culture and another mindset for their stories to bloom.
