More Immortal Beloved foreign rights sales: the trilogy has been placed with Hodder & Stoughton in the UK, and with Loewe Verlag in Germany, both by auctions, and with Olma in Russia, and in Spain, with SM (in Spanish) and Cruilla (in Catalan). This is all so exciting! And of course I hope that the sales of Immortal Beloved will help regenerate interest in Sweep and Balefire, which would make them easier for people to find.
Penguin Books is going to publish Sweep titles 1-3 in a single volume, with a gorgeous new cover. I believe the bind-up will be released in January 2010, at Wal-Marts in America, and then elsewhere in September 2010.
It looks like quite a few foreign publishers are interested in the rights to Immortal Beloved. It’s very exciting! So far Italy, Brazil, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, and France have expressed interest.
