Shadow of the Scorpion in French.

Nice missive here from the Rights Manager at Pan Macmillan, Liz Johnson. She’s delighted to report that Bénédicte Lombardo, at Fleuve Noir (French Publisher) is keen to publish SHADOW OF THE SCORPION.

This will doubtless be as either large format or hardcover or both, then in mass market paperback edition in their Pocket imprint, and there’s also likely to be an e-book, since they have those rights too.
This is all scheduled for 2010.

Now I much look forward to seeing what sort of cover they come up with for this, since Flueve Noir has turned out some stunners.

Thanks B

I've got a long way to go yet. Thus far: France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Russia, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Japan, Lithuania and America.

Interesting that you classed America as another language Neal.... made me chuckle and reminded me of a program i was watching recently about child progidies, where a proud father said his 8 year old daughter could speak 12 languages - 3 of which were american english, autralian english and english english.

Makes me wonder whether or not your books go through a different editing process to 'americanise' the language?

You know, I've never really checked editing in the American versions. I'm guessing they'd have to make changes if I had a character 'smoking a fag' or some such - it'd be a whole different story. But I list America along with the others because the books come out there in a different cover. Australia and Canada have branches of Macmillan.

Greeting! What do you think of wow gold? I always lack of wow gold to buy some great item for my char before the wow patch 3.1 and I need to do wow power leveling for the cheapest wow gold or I have to search cheap wow gold on google search. The world changed since the 3.1 patch released. Short of buy wow gold for me wasn't so high frequency now. And I’m curious why this situation happened? The items became cheap? Or we can farm wow gold much easy? Hope someone can give me an answer.
