After my English translation of the Turkish novel Savaşın Çocukları (Children of War) was a winner in the PEN presents Europe Awards for 2015, Neem Tree Press expressed an interest in having the whole book translated. The book is set on Crete before the outbreak of World War One and is one of my all time favourite novels. The book has now been published in English and is available in traditional and e-book formats. It is available from all major book stores. Here is a link to more information about the book on Neem Tree Press website: Children of War.
