It’s been a long since I’ve posted. I’ve really been focused on writing my next book, which is not part of the City trilogy, but something more contemporary. The third book in the City trilogy has been written, but I’m not sure about when it will be published. Anyway, I’ll keep the blog up to date with everything that happens on the new book front.
Since I last blogged, the foreign editions of The Vaults have started to appear. It is currently available in both Chinese and Italian, and I’ve got the cover for the Russian edition. The French edition is coming out in the spring of 2013 and there will also be a Romanian edition, but I don’t know anything about the publishing schedule there.
Foreign editions are cool for a number of reasons, including learning how to spell my name in Cyrillic and Chinese, seeing how publishers in other countries approach the cover design, and the fact that I don’t have to do much other than sign a contract. Everything else is taken care of by other people. The foreign rights process is yet another reason why an agent is so indispensable. I have no idea how you would go about selling foreign rights on your own.
