Hello Hungary!

Kamuzások, kavarások (the Hungarian version of ADORKABLE) is here!!!  A few days ago, LOL posted some pictures of the book being made, and I just saw this beauty–which of course made my day.  Sally and Becks are making their debut in Hungary, and I am so excited!

Kamuzasok Kavarasok

Sigh…imádom <3 <3 <3 (which means “I love it” in Hungarian; thank you, Tija, for teaching me that one :))

Honestly, I still have trouble believing that a physical, translated copy of my book is going to be available in another country.  So cool and amazing, I can’t even!  In honor of the Hungarian version’s book birthday, here is a song I love for a book I love <3.

I may be “miles from Budapest,” but I hope Hungary welcomes you with open arms, little book!!!  Have a great week, everyone!

Happy reading,

Bookish News

So I have some news–of the bookish variety :).

Next month, I should have 2 new releases coming out!

The two books will be: Kamuzások, Kavarások (the Hungarian version of ADORKABLE <3) and Ash’s book (title and summary to be revealed soon!).  I’m so excited and of course nervous as all get out.  But I’ll try and stick with excitement.

The cover for Kamuzások, Kavarások was revealed last week, and it is…gah, so gorgeous *__*.  Absolutely gorgeous!  You can check it out here!  Seeing the Hungarian cover, looking over the Hungarian-translated text–which I wish I could read!–and working with the team at LOL has been such a wonderful experience.  I still feel like it’s all a dream some days.  I think that’s why I’ve held off announcing it, the fear that I would jinx it or something.

Yes, I am completely serious.

But I guess, it’s time–and that Hungarian cover is just too beautiful not to share <3.

As for Ash’s book, it should be coming out in late March.  I say “should” because to be honest?  The road to publication for this one has been so much bumpier than the one for ADORKABLE.  I’ve had problems with the formatting (which were corrected quickly, but they set me back a bit) as well as problems with emails not coming through from my cover designer.  Sigh.  I still don’t know why this is happening, and I’m one of those people who don’t want to be pushy, so I wait…and wait…and get worried.  Until finally, I send a check-in email and find out the cover designer sent an email days ago that didn’t come through.  Sigh :(.

Again, this has not been smooth sailing, but I’m going to try and release the book in March as promised.  But it will be late March–and hopefully the fact that I’m running a few weeks behind won’t affect it too much.

Hopefully readers will still find and want to read the book.

So that is my bookish news!  Pretty cool stuff coming up; I’m just trying to get everything ready and staying hopeful.

And if you are one of the amazing LOL readers who said such nice things about Kamuzások, Kavarások: THANK YOU!!!  You are so lovely, and your comments made me smile :).  I hope you love Sally and Becks <3.

Happy reading,
