Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating, and Marriage – coming soon to… Armenia?

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

I’ve just learned, by way of a hard-to-read royalties statement from the publisher who took over my book after the original publisher went out of business, that the foreign/translation rights have been bought up by an Armenian publisher called Gruppo Editoriale Armenia. Their website has no mention of it (that I can tell – I don’t speak Armenian!) and this is the first I’ve heard of it.  I wish I knew more!

The German edition turned out beautifully so it could be fun to see what they do with it. If someone from Gruppo Editoriale Armenia stumnland have any details, let me know!

Last summer I was told the U.S. edition was officially out of print and I was able to buy back the rights. I guess that still means they can sell off the foreign language rights, which is a good thing!
