A lot of exciting things have been going on over the last couple of weeks, so I thought I'd share some of them with you.
First off... foreign deals! Thanks to my phenomenal agents, Taryn Fagerness and Kevan Lyon, terms have been settled with Germany (Piper), Italy (Sperling), and Greece (Psichogios) for two and three book deals. I'm incredibly excited and may actually have the opportunity to travel to Germany next fall (of 2010). Now I'm busy composing thank-you notes to all the foreign editors -- I'm so thrilled to have been given the chance to work with them.
I've also been very involved with the production of the English version of Legacy -- getting to see interior artwork samples for chapter headings, taking a look at the work of the artist who is doing the maps (AMAZING -- check out www.betsyhillman.com/kirk for samples. Go to www.guildedquill.com for an idea of what the interior art will be like -- I'm absolutely in LOVE with this woman as well). In addition, I've been listening to some possible narrators for the audiobook version!
Another point of interest: I've finally decided that the name of the third book in the series will be Redemption. I went through a lot of possible names, but none of them fit for one reason or another -- this one really seems to sum up the book and flow with the other two titles, so once again, I'm very excited.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
