Spanish Book Deal!

Wednesday, December 17, 2008, 10:50 PM

Judith Weber, the foreign rights specialist at Sobel Weber, let me know this evening that Ediciones Urano, the Barcelona-based publisher, has acquired world Spanish language rights to THE TWELVE/THE GHOSTS OF BELFAST in another two-book deal. I'm currently having a Stella Artois to celebrate, but it should really have been a San Miguel. Incidentally, I've been to Barcelona twice, and it's one of my favourite places on earth. This might be a good excuse for a return visit!

In other events, an article and a short story by yours truly have just appeared in the winter edition of Ulla's Nib, the magazine published by Belfast's Creative Writers' Network. The story is a reprint of THE LAST DANCE, the short that first inspired my agent to contact me, but the article (a piece on writing in the Internet age) is brand spanky new. I'll post a link to the online edition when it's available.

Maybe you should have called it "There and back again." Congratulations!

Ahem, obviously I coasted over the San Miguel bit in your post. I was in a rush this morning. So sue me.

Congrats still stand.

Okay, now you're just showing off. But on the other hand, it's nice to see your secret plan for global domination(bwah-hah-haaaahhhh!) coming together. Next stop, moon base! And when you're aiming your death-ray at the unsuspectingfolks below, remember all the nice things the gent from Maine said about you...
