Time flies. Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) C-Novel that I am currently translating is coming to an end soon (including epilogue, hopefully by end August / mid-September). Sometime back, when Tinkerbellsan was doing the review of the drama Le Jun Kai (乐俊凯), she had mentioned that I might translate the novel version once I have completed the current translation project.
My memories must have failed me as I thought I had once announce my next translation project but since I am not able to find any post on that apart from the brief mentioned by Tinkerbellsan, I am here now announcing that I have decided to put Le Jun Kai translation on hold and chooses to do something light, short and sweet one.
Finding Glowing Beauty in Books (书中自有颜如玉) is written by Ban Li Zi (板栗子), a C-Novelist. It is a love story about a best-selling detective fiction author, Yan Ru Yu (pen-name Xing Xin) and his rookie editor, Lan Ning in the publishing industry. The story is both sweet and funny.
Want to know more about this novel? Because dramasbooksandtea had written such a fantastic review and introduction to this novel while I am only going to do the novel translation since I am interested in reading them, head over to Finding Glowing Beauty in Books 书中自有颜如玉: Book Review to find out more.
I am not sure of my schedule yet after completing Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚), so I cannot promise if the translation for the novel would be daily like how it is now or it would be ad-hoc. However, I can promise that the first part of Finding Glowing Beauty in Books (书中自有颜如玉) will be made available within the next few days. So stay tune!
Enjoy the read! We will be back soon!
