Polska!

I got some great news from my agent late last night – foreign rights have been sold to Poland! Well, not to the Republic of Poland, but to Polish publisher Vik Grazyna Piekutowska. Foreign Rights are so fun because you get to feel the excitement of selling your book over and over and over again! Then comes the delight of seeing a totally different cover. Most excellent!

Thank you, Poland, for being my first foreign rights offer. To be published in the country that brought the world Copernicus, Chopin, Skłodowska-Curie, and the pierogi is a great thrill. Na zdrowie!
