And I was right

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I felt like something good was going to happen, and it did. I received copies of a Chinese edition of A PLACE TO START A FAMILY. It’s issued by Beijing DangDang Kewen E-Commerce Co., Ltd. I don’t think I’ve ever been in Chinese, unless it was THE BOOK OF GIANTS STORIES long ago. Got a nice advance both in hardback and paper, and I had no idea this was in the works.

My gratitude again to my great editor, Karen Boss, and my partner for the book, the wonderful artist, Giles Laroche. We made a good team and enjoyed the process. I hope this is the first of many translations!

    Happy dance
    for Mr. H.
    Just see this smile
    upon my face.

    But warning too:
    With Chinese fame,
    You will not find
    The author’s name

    Upon the book
    with any ease
    Because–it’s written
    in Chinese!!!

    (With love from an author
    wit many books translated
    into Chinese–& Japanese
    & Korean.)
