Starship “Apple of Discord” by Emanuel Andrei Cosutchi is a space opera.
My name is Emanuel Andrei Cosutchi, friends call me Andrew.
I was born on August ’77, I live in European Union (Romania).
I became writer because I love the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genre.
I was a consumer, I mean I read books, I watched movies and I played video games, but one day I decided to create my own Sci-Fi universe.
So was born the space opera Starship “Apple of Discord”. I finished the first three volumes on November 11, 2017. I plan to write even more and I have other projects too.
Now I need to find a publishing house.
But first I must edit and translate properly my book before I submit it.
I have 2 major problems and these can raise the costs too:
#1 English is not my native language and I want to provide a professional translations because my readers deserve the best
#2 I am a beginner / raw-hand / greenhorn etc., so the editors will charge me more
Writing a book it’s only the half of the quest. Publishing a book is the other one. When I started to write, I thought that all I need is my imagination, good will and hard work. I discovered with horror that’s not enough. I must be one-man-army: promoter, seller and above all to accept rejections and spiteful reviews.
All three volumes of my Sci-Fi book series have more than 80,000 words. My book is also complex.
I put significant effort while I created Starship “Apple of Discord”. I used knowledge from astronomy, physics, mathematics, biology, chemistry, history, geography, psychology, sociology, computer science and xenology.
Unfortunately I have no budget and I can’t save enough money.
Thank you in advance!
