London UK, Tuesday 4th December 2013 – A London based publishing company has released the latest addition to their broad range of successful novels and is looking forward to the release becoming a best seller for 2013. The third edition since its inception, the publisher is excited to announce this as the first edition to be released in English.

Stergiou Limited has announced the release of their latest publication 'The Rocks' which is described as a timeless hymn for people, passion, and love. Originally written in 1970 and first published in the same year, the novel is a romantic story full of love, passion, desire, tragedy and greek mythical allegory.

"I was struck by the persistent exploration of the part of the hero the truth in life. The search of love, even though it always brings back the feeling of death. After all love is immortal and the dynamic coordinates, the cross-checking balances give meaning to life and its duration in perpetuity. I really liked the symbolism of rocks. I would like to shake your hand. Above all because from your first page until the last you remain faithful entirely to an your own attitude, without concessions"
— Takis Chatzianagnostou (established writer).

The novel takes the reader through the memories of a university professor and his past love, which ended in tragedy and subsequently crafted the path for his future. The novel has been written to appeal to all who appreciate the opportunity to become immersed in a meaningful allegorical journey, built on foundations of love and passion. Throughout the novel, lyricism and symbolism is a highly charged driver which carries the plot and storyline forward and subsequently keeps the reader intrigued as the story progresses.

'The Rocks' has been published by Stergiou Limited and is available in print, eBook, and audiobook editions. The enchanting soundtracks composed by David J. Franco are also available from the publisher's website. To find out more about the publisher’s range of eBooks or for information about this publication, please visit the official website.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Dimitris Stergiou

Dimitris is a journalist and author of many books, mainly on economics, folklore, and linguistics. This novel is a unique literary book.

He is born in Palaiomanina, Aitoloakarnania, to parents who worked as farmers. He completed his primary education at the Palaiomanina Elementary School and his secondary education at the Palamaiki School of Iera Polis in Mesologgi. As a top high-school student, he quickly became the flag bearer of his institution. In 1961, he graduated as the first in his high-school class and continued his university studies (in politics, economics and, later, philosophy) in Athens, on a scholarship.

From 1966 to 1970, he was a member of the Editorial Board of the magazine “Trapeziki Oikonomotechniki Epitheorisis” (Bank Logistics Review) and an analyst at the homonymous “Oikonomotechniko Kentro” (Logistics Centre). At the beginning of 1970, he was hired at Lamprakis Publishing Group as an editor of “Oikonomikos Tachydromos” and the newspapers “Vima” and “Nea”. In 1979, he became the Chief Editor and, later, Editorial Director of “Oikonomikos Tachydromos”. He was a member, columnist and analyst at the newspapers “Nea”, “Vima” and “Sunday Vima” until 2001.

In 2001, he was transferred to “Sunday Eleftheros Typos”, initially as a publishing consultant and editorial director, and later as a manager. He left his position at “Sunday Eleftheros Typos” in October 2003 and was transferred to “Apogevmatini” as Editorial Director. Since his retirement, he has been involved with the publishing house Stergiou Limited in the UK, and has authored a variety of books.

In 1997, along with many of his fellow villagers, he co-founded the cultural society “Society of Friends of the Palaiomanina Monuments”, in order to preserve, highlight and capitalise on the rich cultural heritage and tradition of his village. So far, the results have been promising.

He is also a member of the Athens Union of Journalists in Daily Newspapers. He is married to Nota and has four children, Leonidas, Nikos, Eleni and Artemis – Eleutheria, as well as two grandchildren, Nota – Theodora and Christina – Konstantina.
