Good news for those of you who read Macedonian!

I’ve just found out that Vermilion, the Macedonian publisher which brought out the translation of Torrie and the Snake-Prince, is going to be publishing a Macedonian translation of Torrie and the Pirate-Queen as well. Translator Marija Todorova is working on it right now. This is very exciting. I had a wonderful trip to the Republic of Macedonia in the spring of 2010 and met with so many enthusiastic Torrie fans that I came back all fired up to start a new Torrie book right away. (That would be Golden Tigers, and I’m still working on it.) I don’t know when the new Macedonian book will be out, probably in a year or so, but if you read Macedonian, you can watch out for news on Vermilion’s blog. They asked if they could post my illustration of Captain Anna’s ship Shrike, so that’s up here now, and I think Ms. Todorova will eventually be translating the chowder recipe too. (Wren’s bannock recipe is already available in Macedonian.)

    You forgot to include the interesting-looking Cyrillic title for Pirate-Queen:
    Тори и пиратската кралица
