My First Foreign Rights Sale!

I'm so excited to announce that the Romanian foreign rights for Eternal Starling have sold to LEDA, an imprint of Corint Publishers Group!!!


Here's the official Publishers Marketplace announcement!

I want to send a HUGE thank you to Krisz from walking-on-letters.blogspot.com. She's done so much to let people know about Eternal Starling! She made fan art with quotes from the book; started an Emblem of Eternity Tumblr page; and posted several blog posts about the book and campaign! She even recently had the help of Emy and Rose, two awesome Romanian bloggers, to translate the prologue and first chapter from English to Romanian! I appreciate her passion for Eternal Starling, and all that she's done to help bring the book to Romania! You can read Krisz's blog post about the sale here!

I also want to say thank you to all the bloggers and people in Romania who supported the campaign! So many bloggers posted about the campaign and asked me to do interviews. I've been overwhelmed with all the kind emails I've received, and everyone I've worked with in Romania has been so nice!

I can't say thank you enough! And I can't wait for Eternal Starling to be published in Romania!!!
