Some of you have asked on my Facebook page about what languages/countries On the Island will be available in. Lauren Abramo, my awesome foreign rights agent, put together this wonderful list so I thought I'd pass it on. I don't know all the publication dates, but foreign covers are starting to show up on my Facebook wall thanks to awesome readers all over the world. I sure do appreciate when they do that.
Here's the Russian cover. I love the starfish and the heart. Look how funky my name is in Russian.
Here's the Italian cover. I think it's gorgeous!
*And check out this trailer that popped up in yesterday's Google alerts. It's absolutely breathtaking. I probably only watched it a normal number of times. Like 2 or 3. Probably.
When foreign rights to On the Island first started selling, one of the things I got really excited about was the fact that the publishers would be sending me 2-4 copies of each book. I can't wait to put a copy of each edition on the bookshelves in my office.
Here's the roundup of all the publishers who have bought the foreign rights to On the Island:
UK/Ireland/Australia/New Zealand/India/South Africa/Commonwealth: Michael Joseph/Penguin (On the Island & Covet).
Brazil: Editora Intrinseca
China: Beijing Zhengqing Culture & Art
Czech Republic: Euromedia

I'll share more covers and trailers as they come in.
Have a great day, everyone!
*Watching a book trailer repeatedly has a negative effect on productivity. Apparently.
