Less traveling for me, more publishing instead...perhaps?

Dave will be delighted with this scenario!



I think you would ultimately also be delighted with that scenario!

Hugs,
Ilana who has one more chapter to go!!!!!!! ;D
So long and thanks for all the fish

I just received my copy of MY FIFTY YEARS: The memoirs of Prince Nicholas of Greece.  And I love it.  I already have a copy of the original but this is "the new and improved" edition!  It contains information about main characters from where the original book left off (Prince Nicolas, Grand DUchess Helen and their daughters Marina, Elisabeth & Olga).  It also have information on all of their descendants plus lots of photographs I have never seen before!!  One is a group photo of the London wedding reception of Prince & Princess Michael of Kents including Princess Olga, Princess Eugenie of Greece and Prince Alexander and Princess Barbara of Yugoslavia.  The book is published  by Arturo Beeche at Eurohistory.com.  It's so nice to see new life given to old classics!!!


Dear Mark,

Thanks for your kind words...and yes My Fifty Years has got to be one of themost interesting royals books in recent publication.  I had a fantastic time working on it and am delighted with the end result.

Thats a real pitty, about Romanov Diary, that they all want to control everything. But isn't it not that after so many years, there is no more copyright?


It is very complicated, Teddy.  Copyright is the life of the copyright holder plus 75 years!   Greek royalty do not have anything to do with A Romanov Diary.  The copyright belongs to two people: David Chavchavadze and his cousin, Nancy Wynkoop.  Both are elderly, and Nancy is very ill.  The original manuscript cannot be found  - David doesn't have it, and Nancy might, but she's unable to tell anyone.  

This means using the Atlantic International's edition which would, in essense, involve another level of issues.  However, as I am the last person left standing regarding Atlantic,  I can make those issues go away --- I have since learned that another publisher has been approached about the book, but there may be a few technical rather than  legal issues involved.  At this time, there are no definite plans to republish.

I can assure that this issue has been resolved, but there are several other problems ...which may be resolved but not immediately (but none involve me )

Quote
Unfortunately, A Romanov Diary is the classic case of "too small a pie" that needs to be divided among "too many people," all of whom wish to have "too large a portion!"  "+

In other words, a veritable right "royal" mess and I very much doubt any publisher in their right mind would get involved in this project.

Already 13 weeks ago when I posted the last time about this book.

This book, so WONDERFUL. Absolute a must, if you want to know a different sight of the Romanovs and a glimps into Greek Royalty.

Wow, this books is great. ;D
