First foreign rights!
My book (which is currently between titles) is coming out from Razorbill next fall, and now it’s also going to be published simultaneously by Simon & Schuster UK!
This means I will be on two continents. Which is indescribably novel to me!
My book is going to be British.
Did they get “UK & Commonwealth rights, exc. Canada”? If so, that would bring your book to Australia, too ;-)
Yes, I should have been more specific :) The official rights are UK/Commonwealth/English-language Europe, so I assume that means it’s coming to Australia!
Thats great news! You always appear so calm, and your good news is posted … mmm, if I keep really still no one will notice me. I wrote that in my, my name is thumper voice, from Bambi. If it wasn’t for the !! I might have missed it. We do love you over here. Thats me, the dogs and the cat. Have a fun weekend. I’m wasting time when I should be writing letters, and advertising stuff. See you soon.
I always wait to post about things until I’m feeling calm. Otherwise, I run out of words and find that I abuse the !!!
YAY, Brenna!!! So happy for you! By the way, your picture here looks very glam. Hope you’re celebrating great book news.
Thanks, my husband took the pic. It’s cropped so close because a friend is staring out frighteningly from behind me :)
That is wonderful news!
Thanks! Yay, British!
I approve of things being British as well as American!!!
Haha–so do I!
Congrats! (looks forward to two covers)
I’m ridiculously excited about the likelihood of two covers!
Hurrah! Can’t wait to see it – congratulations!
I might be tempted to take a trip to England then. I want to go casually pick up a copy in a corner bookstore and be like, “yeah, this is my friend’s latest novel, ah-hm.” I kinda wanna do that in like every bookstore that will be carrying it there and here :)
Hahaha–I think it’s some weird kind of instinct! I’ve had to dutifully restrain myself every time I see a copy of SHIVER, but the impulse is so strong :)
OMG, that’s brilliant! I will be able to buy your book in an Actual Shop. :)
Yes! It will be in Real. Live. Stores. In England!
