ISLAND OF EXILES
« on: February 15, 2007, 05:32:47 PM »

Been busy working on the revisions for this novel (due out in October in this country).  Today I got the news that my French publisher is also offering for it.  Only DRAGON SCROLL is out in France (both in stores and as a book club novel), but they are working on 3 others.  ISLAND will make # 5. I like this publisher.  They do very elegant covers.

Just saw this.

I'm so happy for you, Ingrid. Although I'm not saying Mazal Tov until it's actually a done thing. You know, to ward off the evil eye!  ;)

Allow me to join in the celebration. Wonderful news.
(As a newbie, I've noticed your commitment to helping the less-published among us. Thanks)

Happy to be here, Ingrid. You may have a new Akitada fan on your hands soon! Fascinating concept. I've already started reading your short story, “Akitada’s First Case.”

Thanks, Glen.  "Akitada's First Case" is hard to come by these days, being out of print.  I hope you like it.  That story has been good to me, though it was only the fourth published.  Sixth or seventh overall.  I write mostly novels.

And I should add that by the time I went into print my concept (Japanese historical mysteries) was no longer new.
