Job description:

Dear friends!
I've been dreamed for a long time - to be published in english language. l wrote quite some time, my web-site: [HIDDEN] also you can read about me here (in russian):Морозов,_Дмитрий_Витальевич
Now I'm searching for interpreter, who have fluent skills in the sphere of literature, like fantasy genre (fiction) and interested in long-term cooperation.
I have plan to be published in the electronic platforms (like Amazon Kindle, etc.), because I think, that nowadays publishers is a redundant element between author and reader.
In my opinion, good interpreter is like the author too, and I'm ready to consider him as co-author (financial).
I set up here only volume of one novel, and I suppose that we could cooperate for the long time and will be working and with my other novels.
I almost don't speak english, this text was written (translated) by my friends. So if you interested in cooperation with me, answer me in russian.

Sample text: Applicants must translate the following text
Лес жил своей жизнью. Он шелестел листвой, ловя лёгкий ветерок, и смыкал кроны, защищаясь от урагана. Лесные птахи любили резвиться среди его ветвей - он бережно выращивал для них червяков и короедов - лесу нравились утренние трели птиц. А вот животных он не жаловал - вернее, опасался, не желая тревожить покой тех, кого защищал - и звери сторонились непонятного места, избегая даже проходить поблизости. Самые мелкие полёвки не заходили под величественные кроны, спасаясь от грозы.
