My horror books "Schramm" and "Hadamar" (English versions) are out today. Orders at email@example.com.
May 29, 2019
The date of the release of my new book “Schramm“ will most likely be postponed (the estimated month is August). I’ve made a decision to write and publish my books only in the English language from now on (the Czech version of the “Schramm” book is thus going to the bin). With the “Schramm” book, I’m going to publish a new English version of the “Hadamar” book as well. I have a lot of reasons why I’ve made such a (maybe for someone unusual) decision.
Unfortunately, the treatment in Vysoké nad Jizerou hasn’t helped so far. I’ve been sent to another specialised medical centre. Despite of that, Dr Hellmuth and Dr Kebrle (who operated the famous tennis player Petra Kvitová) are going to consult my health condition and try to find a solution to my issue on.
By the way, today I was asked to be a member of a metal band that plays at big festivals, gigs abroad etc. Due to my current health condition, I had to refuse this offer.
But I still believe… DAVID
