Thomas Sailer: Chronicles of a Harry Potter Fan

My dear friend, Thomas Sailer has finally got his book translated into English via Ebook. We mentioned last time about his book which was in German but now English readers have a chance to read it. SDR which was formerly Sparkling Illusions became part of Thomas’s DA Network way back when we were still a Harry Potter website. I loved the idea and it was a very good thing to build on. It was kinda sad when things didn’t work out, but I never forgot Thomas and happy he didn’t forget me either. I wish you success on your book, Thomas!!!
