I was very excited to stumble across my book on the German Random House website. (Even though I know NO German, I still managed to navigate to the authors page and find my book) It was great to see it for the first time. They re-market it, so The Family Farm became The Luck of the Red Earth. (I google translated it and then took it next door to my German neighbour to double check lol)
It will be released in Germany on April 1st. I love the colours, even though its nothing like where the book is set but I understand it’s made to stand out as ‘Australian’.
Heart of Gold has also been signed up with the Diana Verlag imprint of Random House. I’m not sure when it will be out, but they took two years to get The Family Farm out, so I won’t hold my breath for any time soon. 🙂
Now I look forward to my copy arriving in the mail and taking it next door to see how my writing was translated. (I wonder how they coped with the slang??)
