I have just received the most exciting news! Thirst is to be published in Germany! My wonderful publishers – Scholastic – went to the Bologna Book Fair in Italy earlier this year. At this fair, publishers from around the world make appointments with other publishers from around the world and present their best works for sale. German Publishers – Beltz and Gelberg – loved Thirst and are in the process of buying publishing rights from Scholastic.
This is my first international publishing deal so I am jumping up and down and screaming.
I love those Germans and their sense of adventure.
