My editor, Jay Slater of Fonthill Media (j.slater@fonthillmedia.com) is interested in any new authors out there. The publishing house he works for does quite a bit of aviation works, including the Second World War, and including VVS subjects (they're going to publish my book Il-2 Shturmovik: Red Avenger, which is supposed to be out this May). Incidentally, our very own Massimo Tessitori did the beautiful colour profiles for the book. If you have any ideas for appropriate books, just e-mail Mr. Slater at the above e-mail address. Thank you!

Best Regards,

Jason

P.S. Please tell him that I referred you.

Hi Jason,
this could be interesting.
Just to avoid duplications, you have already started works on Lavochkins and on the painting of VVS aircraft, isn't it?

I probably should have said what I'm currently contracted with Fonthill for, to avoid duplication. Currently I have contracts to do a book on the GPW Lavochkins, the Tu-2, the postwar Soviet Strategic bombers, and it looks like I'll soon have a contract for the U-2/Po-2. I had been working on a book on VVS colours, but I haven't worked on that in a while - it would be nice to see someone come out with an up-to-date book in English on VVS colours. It doesn't look like I'll be able to as I'm going to be busy in the next couple of years just meeting my contractual obligations.

Regards,

Jason
