The Descent of the Lyre

When you are in Bulgaria right now, you should not miss the book launch of the Bulgarian translation of “The Descent of the Lyre”, a well-crafted historical novel about a musician from the Rhodopi mountains in Bulgaria, by Will Buckingham.

Buckingham, who is also a reader in Writing and Creativity, has a very nice blog that gives an overview about his wide range of interests:

The book launch in Sofia takes place on April, 8, 18.30, at Greenwich Book Centre, Vitosha Blvd. 37.

There will be also two events with the author in Varna on April 10, and 12, organized by Lecti Agency:

    The book is great! It was extremely interesting to me as a native Bulgarian to read it. And I think if you didn’t know the author is a foreigner, you wouldn’t guess he is. There is everything in the book – an interesting story, some mythology, unexpected turnings of the plot and multicultural company of characters.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

      Hello, I am using WordPress which offers quite easy access to blogging. My layout is a bit minimalist, but they have different themes and options according to what you have in mind. I am not an expert but I suppose also the other platforms offer you similar options.
