Thank you so much for the review of my project! I know it was a while ago, and I really should have replied sooner, but I am still amazed that you have rated it 5*. It made me smile. Thank you.
In reply to your question, I made up the words. They mean nothing. I suppose I was leaving the translating up to the reader's imagination. I tried to keep the language as far as I could from English so as not to bring any real words into a reader's head, so they can mean whatever you like.
Hi, hope all’s well. Just to let you know my novel, ‘The Broken Boots Guide to Astlavonia’ has just been published. It’s a black comedy about a debt-ridden divorcee who is sent to Astlavonia, a former soviet state, to write its first ever guidebook but discovers all disputes are settled with a knife.
