Germany wants Acacia

I'm thrilled to be able to announce that a German publisher, Blanvalet, will be translating and publishing Acacia: The War with the Mein. I had nothing to do with the negotiations, but there was interest from a few Germany companies. Blanvalet beat the others with the right sort of offer. There's money involved, of course, but it also sounds like Blanvalet will be able to place the book beside other titles/authors on their list. They publish George R.R. Martin, Isaac Asimov, Christopher Paolini, Terry Goodkind, for example. Acacia is somewhat different than any of these author's works, but on the other hand there are similarities also. Makes me very happy that a publisher actively working with top epic-fantasy seems to think Acacia will have a place in the genre also.

Of course, now I'm wondering if this might be the start of something good. It is early days yet, with the US publication still 8 months away. Perhaps they'll be some other offers... I'm hoping.

Hello,

Acacia will be out mid-June 2007 in the US. No idea when it might appear elsewhere, though.
