Violet Raines Wurde Fast vom Blitz Getroffen!

Wunderbar!

My editor has informed me that Walker BFYR has sold Violet Raines to Carlsen, a publisher in Germany.

Violet Raines Wurde Fast vom Blitz Getroffen--If you said, "Wow! That looks like German for Violet Raines Almost Got Struck by Lightning!", you are right!

We're looking forward to seeing if there will be any design changes. Won't that be cool!

In the meantime, Schönen Tag noch! (That's the closest I could get to Have a good day!)

Cool. I never really thought of the AMerican YA market extending to Europe. I hope it sells well.

Danette Haworth said...

JKB, even better! Thanks!

Thanks, Charles. The book definitely peculiar to America; I'll be interested in the German response to it.

JKB, your interpretation is closer, so I edited my post to include it!

Wow -- I'm guessing that 'blitz' is either 'hit' or 'lightning'! This is so cool, Danette. Congratulations. (Wish I knew how to say that in German...)
