My dear Friends,

I am happy to announce that my book is available in Apple Books on Your Mac or IOS device, please click here: https://itunes.apple.com/book/id1436577838

Let’s peep into Chapter 2 entitled FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE THE MOST LASTING:

Franz Kafka said, “First impressions are always unreliable”. Thus, I would urge you to visit – or re-visit – Ukraine with a view to changing any negative impression you may have formed. Let me invite you to my mysterious country. Let me guide you – I know you are intrigued. Every word you read here should make you hungry for more. That is my intention, and I will provide you with everything your capricious soul desires. We will have an unforgettable journey around my country:

It blooms in spring

And fades in fall

Its winter roads

Are full of snow

And summer days

I won’t let you know

As you should come

And find on your own…

Ann Romanenko

THIS TIME NIEDERNSILL FOUND ME (VIDEO STORY IN ALPS)

A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective. Irving Penn

I cannot travel as often as I wish to. Therefore it takes time for planning and realizing. I tend to find my own destinations that are not popular and are unknown. My photocamera and heart brought me here, or, simply saying, my financial possibilities. And so what, I knew that I wanted to visit Alps, why should I spend huge money for the most expensive places. Such places are for those crazy Insta-selfie/Facebook lovers who care for the number of likes. I am in a search for the place that speaks to my heart and change me inside. This time Niedernsill found me…

Stay in tune!

GO BY THE NAME OF…

My dear little Friends,

How are you doing?

My book is on Amazon but it means that this is only the beginning, still much work that should be done. Advertising and marking are two new fields where I am a rookie. However, I can boast about some reviews that have recently appeared in my author page.

reviewsI am very grateful for this positive review, it means a lot to me.

I confess that advertising is not that easy as I expected. It takes a lot of efforts and money as well.

Also, you have to study what are the most efficient ways of advertising and marketing. You not only need to attract the readers’ attention but also reach the targeted reader and that’s the most difficult to me. How do I know who would be interested to read my book, people are so different, the same is with their book preferences. A dilemma, isn’t it? I do not give up and I know that the hardest is waiting for me yet.

Until I would like to share with you some excerpts from the first chapter of my book Ukraine, I Wrote About that is available on Amazon as paperback and ebook. Do not forget to have a look (in case you didn’t do it yet)!

In Ukrainian the name of my country sounds as Україна using the Slavic alphabet. If I split this word into two halves, then I get U kraina or U kraini meaning “at the country”. That is it, at my country, I live at my country and I was born at my country. That is pretty simple and clear. I do not need to search for any extra meaning.

Ukrainian historians have already found several hints of how to interpret the name of our country. For instance, Olexander Paliy holds the idea that it was synonymous with “princedom” or “land”. Another Ukrainian historian, Ivan Ogiienko, insists that it was used to name the frontier Pereyaslav land or even other Kyiv lands. The Canadian historian of Ukrainian origin, Orest Subtelnuy, thought that Ukraine geographically meant Kyiv border. Vitalyi Sklyarenko says that the letter “у” in many languages, particularly in Ukrainian, means not close to, but inside. Many Ukrainian researchers are of the opinion that the word “Ukraine” consists of two parts: “kraina” and “u” denoting “home land”, an antonym to “foreign land”.

I appreciate every comment or response. Hope to see you among my readers and reviewers! I am certain that my book won’t leave you indifference. This is a travel guide to my heart!

PASSIONATELY ABOUT UKRAINE ON AMAZON

My dear little Friends,

41Sz+YPJY8L._SY300_

Today I would like to share with you, my dear Friends, my great news.  I finally managed to publish my book on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1721749993/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0

Today I would like you to let you in… my inner world that is sometimes unknown even for me. This book helped me to reveal that I simply love the country where I was born and where my heart belongs to. These are not words, these are true feelings. While being even far from Ukraine I feel that I am bonded with my motherland. And this bond cannot be broken ever. I will cite you something “Ukraine has its Ann and Ann has her Ukraine“. I guess this one sentence has its all. I never thought that I can love the place where I live so much. I always wanted to travel and perhaps live in the other country, I didn’t suspect that I can be so attached to my Ukraine.

I would not like to tease you or take your time from reading my book…however, reading my book might give you a chance to understand who Ukrainians are, why we live a bit outside from Europe, why we have our hybrid undeclared war with Russia, and what we eat for breakfast (perhaps the most interesting). I tried to present you a full picture without hiding its ugly part (as much as I can) and yet I wanted to make my country attractive to you, as well as invite you to visit it one day. 81Gl8HjphFL

There will be surprises such as desperate meetings with my Euterpe or spontaneous outpouring of emotions (funny or serious). One more bonus is that you will not only be able to chat with Ann while flipping through my book, but also enjoy the illustrations created to entertain you.

Anyway, do not consider me immodest please, I am sure that “Ukraine, I Wrote About” won’t let you indifferent…

 

Hope to find you, my little Friends, among my Readers! Your reviews are the best reward for my work! It means a lot to me! Please spread a word on my book!

Find it available as paperback (soon as e-book) on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Ann-Romanenko/e/B07H2DKP69?ref_=pe_1724030_132998060

Looking forward to reading your comments!
