I’m extremely excited to announce that I’m going to St. Petersburg – hopefully from January, if everything works out with travel restrictions.
I’m going to stay there for six months to write a thriller set primarily in St. Petersburg, but also other parts of Russia.
I had applied for an art residency a couple of months back, and had expected that I wasn’t selected. But the selection process got delayed due to the Corona virus, so I was super surprised when I got an email confirming my participation!
There are so many questions on my mind right now: Will I be able to travel to Russia in January due to the Corona virus? Will I be able to plan and write an entire book in 12 months? Will people be as excited about the book as I am?
I’m going to keep you informed on the book and the journey as I go along.
For now, I’ll share the book blurb and [english] cover. Hope you like it!
