Romanian and Afrikaans editions in the works!
I got two emails this week - the first telling me that the entire series of The Wives of King David will be printed in Romanian! The second email said that Michal will be published in Afrikaans (a South African language.) Cool! They probably won't come out for a while - even up to two years, but it's awesome to see the books printed in words I can quote but can't read. I hope readers of these new editions are blessed by the stories. I finished the substantive edits on Bathsheba last week and will see page proofs some time in October. My new goal is to read through Sarai and try to determine if the story needs a complete overhaul or not. My critique partners may be getting a desperate call for help if that happens!
Fall weather appears to have found us, and people I talk to seem happy to be rid of the 90 degree weather. I love being able to open windows and feel the fresh breeze. I only hope we don't have too cold a fall. It is still technically summer until next week!
This coming Sunday night, American Christian Fiction Writers is having their awards banquet to wrap of their 2010 Conference. For those who can't be there, they are having a Live Blog Event so people who are interested can know who the winners as it happens. Michal is a finalist for the Carol Award in the Debut Author Category. The Genesis and Carol Awards, along with other writing awards will be announced at this time, so if you are so inclined and want to attend the banquet vicariously to root for your favorite authors, sign up here.
Until next time~
