About

Welcome to the Lila project, an Illustrated fantasy book - where you will meet some absolutely crazy, funny and sexy characters!   

3 worlds, 3 books and 3 connected storylines. 

The first story starts on New Year's Eve in Paris and same time in Upworld, a very cold and bureaucratic place where Cupid's arrows go missing during a debaucherous party. We have a crazy professor - inventor, with a penchant for acquiring other people's property and St. Valentine who works as a freelancer to keep the biggest secret in the Universe.

Then we drop with our hero to Downworld - which is a complete surrealistic mess and in the midst 5000 year long carnival, where lives are constantly under the threat of the very dangerous candy maker Mr. Furvindey. 

With ours heroes we continue the journey to Moscow, Sydney and Paris - where located within the Eiffel towel is the secret elevator which connects all 3 worlds.

This story answers the big questions: Who really controls the lives of humans? Do we have our own choices or is somebody playing a silly game which we call 'life circumstances'? 

" Lila in Rue de la Huchette" is full of love, betrayal, adventure and some truly amazing illustrations!

How will the book appear?

Development of the character illustrations:

 

I'm working in collaboration with the wonderful artist Edward Halmurzaev. He has added some fantastic illustrations by visualizing my story and developing the characters in his own creative way. All of the heroes in the book are very appreciative of Edward's skills for giving them such unique looks and helping them evolve as real world entities.

The estimated time for the publishing of the book is May 2018. 

  

Risks and challenges

This is my first book in English, with this story representing the first book of a trilogy that was originally written in Russian. I just need to do:

* Final English editing and translating to correct my text.
* Pay fee to the artist to make more amazing illustrations for my book.
* Print the first copy in English.

One risk is that the printing takes longer than anticipated, delaying the delivery of the rewards.

Thank you all for your support and for helping me publish my very first book in English.
