When kvetching isn't enough.
Guess how I’m feeling today!
Congratulations!!!!! I guess you are feeling like a real author, that's what I guess. Hope all the hard work seems worth it now.I like the cover. I bet it sells in the thousands.
Thank you, L. Yes, I am feeling like a real author (it's been a long time since I last experienced that) - and, by putting my name on the cover (instead of hiding it inside or omitting it completely, as so often happens in the UK), the publishers seem to agree that I am the author of that translation.I'm quite fond of the cover too. And of the French title: it's very clever. But it still won't sell: only books about perfume sell these days.
Fabulastic! How wonderful for you.Re: p.b. sales, well, they sell only up to a certain degree ;-)
Thank you, E. I'm quite chuffed. Being published is a great pleasure.I'm sure they sell better than literary novels.
That's terrific - nice to know that all your hard graft has been properly recognised.
Wow what an accomplishment. You should definitely proud.
Thanks, S! I hope to see your name on the cover of a book very soon. :-)Thanks, J! I walked away from all that 30 years ago. Mad, eh!
PS. Meant to say that French literary translators won the right to have their names on the covers of books exactly 30 years ago: I was there when it happened and remember well the thrill I got when it happened.
A very late congrats!!!
Thank you very much, R! :-)
How wonderful! All your readers know just how hard you worked on this book. I hope you get all the credit you deserve for this.
