Source: http://www.taxfreegold.co.ukI’m thrilled to announce that we have just sold the first foreign rights to Fair Coin and Quantum Coin! From Publishers Marketplace:

Complex Chinese rights to E. C. Myers’s FAIR COIN and QUANTUM COIN, to Sharp Point, in a nice deal, by Gray Tan at The Grayhawk Agency on behalf of Brady McReynolds at JABberwocky Literary Agency.

My thanks to Gray and Brady, and of course my agent, Eddie Schneider, and Pyr! I love seeing foreign editions of familiar books and magazines. When I was a kid, one of my favorite things was a video game magazine I picked up on vacation in South Korea. I couldn’t read anything in it, but it was fun trying to figure out what words meant “Super Mario,” and screenshots of games are pretty much universal. I still treasure my dual-language editions of Sherlock Holmes, Edgar Allen Poe stories, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, with Korean on one page and English on the facing page. (I was bored on the trip, so of course my mom bought me books.)

I look forward to seeing what the Coin books look like in Chinese, and here’s hoping we’ll be able to bring them to even more countries around the world!

      Thanks! I wanted to tell you before it was official, but we haven’t talked in a while :(

        It’s OK, I understand how hectic life can get. And in a way I already knew. I had a dream about a week ago in which I was in China with you and I thought that was odd as we’ve never done that. I meant to call you but then the day got filled up with auto repairs and grocery shopping and work and laundry etc. etc. Maybe my dream was the premonition of a book tour :)

      Thank you! I really want there to be Korean editions too so I can give them to my mom. She read them in English, but I think she’d love to read them in Hangul. Plus, all her friends and our family in South Korea would have to buy it!
