Way cool news.

They've sold Russian foreign language rights to The Spymaster's Lady.

Russian. Oh my.

  3. Hi Keira --

    The thought of the book in another language
    -- and hey, I think I get ANOTHER COVER too --
    is so bizarre. It would be like your kid coming home speaking Greek all of a sudden.

    Ummm ... you're welcome.
    I think.

    I used a Russian word in Lord and Spymaster. I hope I got it right ...

    Thank you kindly.

    It's the nice people in the Berkley foreign rights department who do this for me.

    I was in Russia for 3 weeks after I graduated from High School as a Student Ambassador - wonderful experience!

    Awesome news!

    I couldn't get any of the online translaters to work for me. I think they don't do well with other alphabets.

    Jessamyn, in My Lord and Spymaster, lived in Russia for a few years when she was a teenager.

    I wouldn't set a story there ... that's a huge, complex culture and it'd take mountains of commitment to do it justice.

    But my characters were there in backstory so I did a little reading. Traveller's tales from 1800 or so. Very interesting.

    Me too. I've been looking at the workshops. Cool cool stuff.

    They've decided to hold every workshop I want to attend simultaneoously with two other workships I want to attend. How do they KNOW?

    And I want to see Fisherman's Wharf. (Why does that word have an 'h' in it? So unnecessary.)
