Growing Patterns to be Published in Korean!

Great news is coming in fast and furious around here. It’s hard to keep up with the reporting.

growing patterns overGrowing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature will be published in Korean by a Korean publisher.

Here’s how I found out: I received a nice check in the mail from my publisher with no explanatory letter. The memo on the check just said “Advanced Pay.” I sent off an email to my editor asking about the mystery check. She passed it on to our rights manager who told us that the Boyds Mills Press international team had sold the rights to publish a hardcover edition of Growing Patterns in Korean to a Korean publisher. Wow!

My check is an advance against royalties so the hope is that eventually, there might be further royalties from the deal. I haven’t seen any royalties from my first foreign rights deal, which was to publish Wolfsnail: A Backyard Predator in China in 2011.  I keep scouring the twice-a-year royalty statements, and occasionally bugging my editor, who then bugs the international team. I’ll keep you posted.

    I’d be curious to know which of your books have been (or are to be ) translated into which languages. If you have that at your fingertips.
    Congratulations! The book is gorgeous. Janine & Brad

  • Sarah,
    I know you’re happy about more children seeing your book. The extra check is nice, too.

    Janine, Just Wolfsnail published in China with English and Chinese texts side by side. And, this forthcoming hardcover edition of Growing Patterns to be published by a Korean publisher in Korean (I’m not sure whether it will retain the English text, too.)
