year, the Winter Frog King sent my good wishes together with me -
this year his position will take over the Luminous King from the
Christmas market in Metz who is accompanying me with my good wishes
I thought about the year 2022 during the time of my year-end vacation in the Normandy when I walked on the beach and watched the waves crash on the beach. The former year 2022 was a year with many negative headlines. With the arrival of the waves on the beach, I hoped that the New Year 2023 would be a better and, above all, more peaceful year. All these are my wishes to you, my readers, friends all over the world and visitors who visit my web site for the first time by getting knowledge of my books and texts. I wish you all that the days of 2023 may be marked by joy, happiness, stable health and success for you.
Frieling- Verlag – Poetry Contest 2023
My publisher, Frieling-Verlag in Berlin, has also announced a poetry competition for spring 2023, in which I will take part. The topic "In another life" offers me the opportunity to find my way into a role or into another person and thus express my wishes. Even if the scope and characters per line are precisely specified and it can sometimes be difficult to formulate a sentence, it is a welcome opportunity for me to live out the diversity of languages. With the submission deadline of March 15, an exciting waiting time begins for me, because the result of the competition will be announced on April 15, 2023.
book fair from 27 until 30 April 2023 –
new Year and another month!
The time has finally come - after three years when the Leipzig Book Fair could not take place - it has now found its place again in the book fair world for Germany. And I will be present at place and on Saturday, April 29, 2023 it is not only my intention to present my books, but also being an ambassador for my publishing house. Come to Leipzig and see the variety of literature that this fair has to offer. Everyone, my author colleagues and myself as well as my publishing house, Frieling-Verlag in Berlin, are looking forward to welcome you and, after three years of abstinence, we will turn this fair into a major start-up festival for book lovers.
Fair Saar (online) 2023
The Saar Book Fair 2023 logo is on the internet, but without fixed dates, so I am not sure if it will take place this year again. I always enjoyed participating in the 2020 and 2021 trade fairs, and so did my online visitors as well.
An impression of presenting my books during that fair may show you the videos on „YOUTUBE“ – here the links:
It would be nice if there would be a continuation of the fair, - so far for the moment I can only wish you all a lot of fun watching my book presentations on youtube!
book fair from 18 until 22 Oktober 2023 – the World most important
book fair will take place and with Slovenia as special guest country.
I will be there again and look forward to exploring the trade fair as a trade visitor during these days. On the visitor day, Saturday, October 21, 2023, I will be again present at the booth of my publisher, Frieling-Verlag, Berlin with my books. The photo from the Book Fair 2022 conveys how an author like me is welcomed by a country representative - here Belgium – we are hand in glove aren't we?
planing status – my visit on LitCologne 2023 which will take part
from 01 until
I have been following the fair on the Internet for a long time - now, according to the program, it should be concrete in 2023. Even if I haven't yet found the ideal date for me - I will certainly be there. And I would be happy to have a little chat with one or the other author colleague.
