Project Description

Right now I am writing on a Horror novel in my foreign language which is German!
But since I moved to Los Angeles, I want to translate the novel into english! But sadly I found that
every translator want to be paid per word... Which is at the moment just not possible for me.

1st at all I am in the middle of the immigration process. My money from Germany is going out the windows for all
the paper work, the marriage etc. But this book is a big dream.

A little bit about myself and the book:

Death Lurks Everywhere was inspired by one of my most incredible dreams from childhood. I started to write this book when I was 15 years old and had developed the story until it filled 110 pages of my imagination. Then, disaster struck. The manuscript had been lost. I was profoundly devastated and overwhelmed at the prospect of having to start again from scratch. I surrendered my hopes of one day becoming an author and sharing the stories, and dreams that filled my imagination. It seemed to me as though I had been placed under a curse and the loss of my treasured writings was an omen that heralded even more challenges, and everything seemed to go wrong.

Shortly after moving to California, I was amazed to learn that my mother had discovered 41 of those precious pages, an incomplete draft of Death Lurks Everywhere, while cleaning the room I'd left behind in Germany. She sent me those pages, which have since been rewritten and developed into an incredible book with 29 chapters, 17 of which have been set down, in 130 pages so far and with a word count of: [url removed, login to view] words. I still have to write more. But this is the actual progress!

I'm looking forward to fulfilling my dream, sharing my story with you and becoming the author that I envisioned in my childhood.

So if there is someone out there who can translate a horror novel from German into English, without losing my writing style and without charging a fortune, I would love to get in contact with you! ;-)
