I have a fabulous surprise to share with you! My Chinese book... #mgtab


I am so stoked…




I will soon have one of my books selling on Amazon in China and translated into Chinese.

This is what happened.

Eight months ago, my friend, Donna Fasano, showed me her book "The Merry-Go-Round and the page where it was being sold on Amazon in China.

Seeing her book tickled me and I decided I wanted to have one of my books up there for sale too. So, I signed up on a site called Fibereads and submitted a number of books and waited with bated breath.

Finally, I was notified that a manager had claimed my project “I’m No Angel” and after many months of back and forth interactions with different translators here is my beautiful cover.



 

It should be on sale there soon and hopefully, the Chinese women will like the book as much as our English-speaking readers.

They’ve started on the next book I submitted and eventually, Special Agent Francesca will be sold there also.
Now how cool is that?!!

  3. Hi Olga, it is exciting. I love the idea of other cultures enjoying our work. Just hope they were able to translate it so it makes sense to them. :-)

    1. According to some of the results, it doesn't seem to entail a huge financial return but then it costs nothing but your time so it's no loss either. Go for it, my friend :-)
