Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, these four I've mentioned are the best, the others are just the usual crime novels or historical fiction or Feng Shui manuals that nobody knows or cares about. It would have been much better for the planet if nobody had ever written 90 per cent of them in the first place, much less translated them to Spanish, but the market rules and the market is hot. (70.000 new titles in Spain in 2006).

On the other hand, a first class author is not a guarantee of selling success, with Da Vinci Code, Patricia Cornwell and the likes. And a great author requires much more work and the difference in terms of money is small. It's like a lottery, somehow.

I don't know if I will be in the Paris meet up. I've booked a quick trip to Amsterdam for the end of May and I'm afraid I will not be able to get another three or four days break for middle June and I don't like the idea of going only for the lunch, as I've not been in Paris since... really long ago.
