A pair of book birthdays

I’m early for one and late for the other, but let’s just pretend it’s Presidents’ Day and celebrate both together! Here’s the cover for the Brazilian edition of Seraphina, which came out in April:

Hurray! I hope Brazilian readers are enjoying the book!

And then, coming out at the end of May, we’ve got the Indonesian Seraphina!

Indonesian cover

My Indonesian translator informs me that this is original art by Martin Dima. I love how it’s reminiscent of the North American cover – sepia tones, Medieval city – while still being entirely its own thing.

Happy (late and early!) birthdays, international editions! It is humbling to realize how many places people are (and will be!) reading my book.

    Hi Rachel! My name is Lauren, I am Brazilian and I loved your book, recently finished reading it, but I hope to see your other works soon! Congratulations for the great job! xoxoxo bye bye o/

  3. Nice covers! My favourite is still the UK/Irish edition. (I’m in Ireland) Just finished reading the book today, loved it! It was my choice for the Grown Ups Read YA book club I’m in – thinking of discussion points now :) Thanks for a great read – looking forward to reading more of your work!

    Hi, can I just start by saying that I love Seraphina and I can’t wait for your next book!
    I wasn’t sure where to post this question, but I was wondering if your comics are available to the public?

    Hi Rachel! I loved your book. I’m also from Brazil and my cousin gave it to me as a gift. The way you describe dragons and their traces is truly intriguing, and Seraphina by herself is touching. The love story inside the book is not annoying at all (thanks), and I was just hoping they would kiss again by the end of the book. Well… I think you would like to know something. There is this work being done in Brazil by some people who are creating dragon essences, which are quite similar to flower essences / remedies. The interesting part is that they describe traits of each dragon by its colour, so each dragon essence can work for an emotion or a problem… When I read your book I couldn’t stop remembering that and how interesting it would be if they matched. Here is the link: http://www.dragoncenter.com.br/si/site/0000/i – each month new dragons arrive as essences, and as a Naturologist I use them a lot with big results!

    Thank you so much for this book, I hardly can’t wait for its sequel!
    Greetings from Brazil, I’ll follow your blog!

    It’s not fair that all the foreign editions have better covers than the original.

    I cant wait for part 2. Can we get an update? Wikipedia says 2013. Internet book shops have it listed as 2014.
