THE WOODS in German and HAT in Spanish

I'm happy to announce that THE WOODS have their first foreign language licence under their belt, even before the US edition came out! German publisher Baumstamm, and imprint of major house Bastei, will publish it as Nachts im Wald.

And HAT keeps on trucking as well, the Spanish Edition was just sold to Flamboyant in Spain. That makes 6 foreign editons for HAT– what a thrill!

Meanwhile, THE WOODS had their first public appearance, at this year's ALA conference. Can't wait for the official release in April!

Thanks to Ty King of Writers House for the photo.

HAT Chinese Edition

The Chinese Publisher of HAT, Hsaio Lu has sent some copies of the Chinese edition, and my publisher Bloomsbury was so kind to forward me a whole stack. They turned out really nice, and it's fascinating to see my artwork with the Chinese typography. The colors turned out perfect, the design is great (including UV varnish on the cover!) and I especially love how they appropriated my handlettered title on the cover. It'll be so exciting to see the other foreign editions…
