Het Cadeau (The Gift)

This morning I found a brown package on my doorstep, containing the Dutch copy of my picture book! Anno Domini sold the rights to publishers in the Netherlands, and so I expect it will be out there this winter.

Now all I have to do is take a quick course in Dutch... Betsy, maybe I should call you up?

Wow! How cool! So did they have someone translate it for you? So now you're not only a published author, you're also an author who has been published in another language!!! I am so in awe!

I am excited to know how many languages your book translates into? Is it now English and Dutch, or is it in ther languages as well?

Poor Murphy. I am rather fond of the middle photo you posted. He sits still so well. My dog is always on the move so I never get photos of her.

Betsy -- Someone translated it. I can read a bit because parts of Dutch are so similar to German...but there's no way I'd ever be able to pronounce the words!

Judy -- So far the book's only in Dutch, but Anno Domini (the book packager) is taking it to the 2009 Frankfurt Book Fair to try and sell English rights and those in other languages as well.

Murphy is anticipating a doggie treat for all his efforts!
