About

As most of you know, Iran currently does not adhere to International Copyright Laws. This means that any book can be translated, however poorly, and published without permission. The author receives no payment whatsoever, regardless of the number of books sold. The payment, however, is not the biggest issue. The most degrading aspect is having a horrible translation of a book with the author's name on it. The translated version usually has very little to do with the original text. It's theft of the author's name and reputation. In addition, readers around the world who rely on translated works have no access to the real book, or the author's true intentions.  The existence of legally translated versions also allows libraries around the world to access the real book. This helps keep the Persian language alive. 

I am trying to raise funds to publish an official version of my upcoming novel. I already have a translator and publisher in the US. It's a straightforward project. For all of you who believe in books, the power of stories, and honesty, please help make this project come to fruition.  Thank you.

Risks and challenges

I already have a translator and publisher in the US, so this is a straightforward project.
