Ciao Bella!

Happy to announce that I signed the contracts today for Powerless‘ Italian debut!  Molto importante publisher Mondadori has aquired Italian rights to the novel thanks to super-agent Kate Schafer Testerman’s super-agentin’.

If there are any Italian booksellers who want to schedule a signing, I will tell you now that I am willing to make that trip – I will suffer for my art.

This is my first foreign rights deal and, of course. the question of the day from friends and family has been, ” Wow, I didn’t know you spoke Italian!”  My answer is that I don’t, but I am rooting for Fabio on Top Chef so I think that counts for a lot.

  1. Yay!

    Congrats! When do we get to see the English version?

  2. That’s great. Wonderful… now, about taking care of me for the rest of my life…

  3. Thanks guys!

    Powerless will be out in the States on November 10th. And Kristopher, you are welcome to our couch anytime . . . but it’s real nerdy around here.

  4. Proud sister, Sharon Says:

    Congratulations! I am so proud of you. You are simply amazing.

    Translated into Itailian:
    “Congratulazioni! Sono così fiero di voi. Siete semplicemente stupefacente.”

    Which literally translates as:
    “Congratulations! They are thus fierce of you. You are simply narcotic.”

    Yeah. You are.

    Beyond-Beyond-Beyond Cool…lil Will’s Grandpa Rick and Ms. Grandma Jan marie

  6. Seeing the picture of the cover makes it seem all the more real. I’m excited for you–I can hardly imagine how excited you must be.

    I was just about to preorder a copy when I remembered that you’ll get a better cut if I order it from a traditional bookseller. 🙂

  7. Very exciting, yes! Thanks Kater! Thanks everyone!

    Actually, I believe the royalties are the same whether its bought through Amazon or another bookseller (unless it’s a used copy of course).

    But I wholeheartedly support waiting to buy it from an independent seller, and as soon as its solicited I’ll post links to a few of my favorites here.
