I hope this interests some of you:|
We're hosting a live chat with Dmitry Glukhovsky, author of Metro 2033 the book on our Metro 2033 Twitter and Facebook pages tonight from 21.00 – 23.00 GMT (that's 13.00 - 15.00 PST and 16.00 - 18.00 EST).
Dmitry is a pretty inspiring guy - he first published the novel for free on his own website and, after attracting some 2 million online readers, secured a publishing deal in Russia and has since seen Metro 2033 published across Europe to huge critical acclaim. You can still freely read the original text in Russian on the site. It was a collaborative project from the start, and he's now inviting young authors to write more fiction set in the Metro 2033 universe - any would be novelists out there?
Dmitry will be online between 21.00 and 23.00 GMT to answer questions via our Metro 2033 Twitter and Facebook pages. Want to know where he got his inspiration from? Need tips on how to publish your first novel?
Oh, and Dmitry also speaks Russian, English, German, French and a little Spanish, and will be happy to receive and answer questions in these languages!
