Just a few Legend updates!

I recently did an interview (with the lovely Christine Donatello) for ScienceFiction.com about Legend. Now it's live! You can check it out here:

sciencefiction.com/2011/02/23/…

Also, Penguin's foreign rights team has now brought the total of Legend's foreign rights deals up to 6! We recently sold Italian, Greek, and Hebrew rights. This means that so far, Legend will be published in (not including U.S.):

- UK/Australia/New Zealand
- Italian
- Spanish/Catalan
- French
- German
- Hebrew

I think those are all the ones, although I might be forgetting one.....

Anyway, have a great weekend, guys! And sorry about my fewer replies lately--I'll try to catch up a bit in the next few days. :heart:
  • Listening to: G6 - Far East Movement
  • Reading: Delirium - Lauren Oliver
  • Drinking: Always agua

If you (or Penguin) can get an Arabic translation, you can bet I'll be buying two copies, at the least. I can't wait 'till it's published, madam! I remember the characters, and I'm excited to see how they've evolved.

Ooh, I hope so! An Arabic version would be so exciting because I've always loved the way the letters look! :) Thank you so much for the kind words!

No problem! Oh, and hey...if you got an invite on LinkedIn from me, it's probably because I got an email from you when I was being a beta on your Legend site and found a bug. I just joined and it automatically searched my contacts and I just added them all (sort of by accident; I probably should have looked at the whole list). If you want to add me, then that's awesome, but I understand if you don't because we know each other only through here, haha. :)

That's so exciting! You will be collecting copies in each language right? I always wonder if J.K. Rowling has a bookcase full of translated Harry Potters...
I would.

lol, I'm sure J.K. Rowling's bookshelf is overflowing with the hundreds of translated versions she has! I will definitely be giving my editor puppy dog eyes for copies of each translated version. :D

Is it coming out in Australia in November as well, or is that just the U.S. release?

I can't wait to read it! I've never really read any Sci-fi, only fantasy, so this'll be my first.
