Czech rights sold!

My brilliant foreign rights agent Taryn Fagerness has just sold the Czech language rights to The Darling Strumpet!  Nell's getting very popular in Eastern Europe.  Taryn has also sold the Polish and Hungarian rights, in addition to Turkish.  And of course the UK rights, which encompasses Commonwealth countries such as Australia.  And here's the cover of the Hungarian edition...

The Darling Strumpet in San Diego!

Last weekend I attended the Historical Novel Society conference, held this time in San Diego.  I greatly enjoyed participating in the panel on making characters believable, moderating the panel on maritime history, and signing books on Saturday afternoon, as well, of course, the opportunity to meet so many authors, bloggers, and other interesting types.

One of the highlights for me, however (though I admit I was nervous!) was that my heroine Diana Gabaldon, who was once again organizing the Saturday Night Sex Scenes readings, not only chose the Nell-Rochester scene as the finale, but also read the narration herself!  I was also honored to have the enormously talented C.C. (Chris) Humphreys reading the part of the Earl of Rochester.  Actually, it was his idea for us to do it as a scene!

I'm happy to say that my brilliant foreign rights agent Taryn Fagerness has sold Polish rights to "The Darling Strumpet," in addition to the previously sold British, Turkish, and Hungarian rights!
