The Country of the Day: Turkey!

A huge, grateful shout-out of thanks to TURKEY for being the first country to purchase rights to The Body Electric! The publisher is Grup Yayincilik, the same publishing house that did the Turkish translations of Across the Universe.

I am so, so happy that The Body Electric is reaching past America's and the English-speaking language borders, and I can't wait to see where else it goes! A special and heartfelt thanks also to my agent, Merrilee Heifetz, her assistant Sarah Nagel, and the entire foreign rights department at Writers House, including Cecilia de la Campa. Thank you all for working so hard to get my book to international readers!

In other happy-making news, The Body Electric was also featured in an article from the School Library Journal--you can read the whole article here, which is a fascinating look at the evolving nature of publishing in today's marketplace.
