Germany!

I love Germany. It's actually one of the few places I've visited. It's gorgeous and the people there are so kind. Several years back we hosted a foreign exchange student from Germany in our home for a year. It was fun. And so when she went home, we visited her and her family along with several other places.

So, when my agent emailed me and said that the German publisher, ARENA VERLAG wants to publish my book and its sequel, I was soo excited! (I mean, even without having a small connection to Germany I would've been excited, but with the connection, I am even more excited.) Knowing that my foreign exchange student can read my book in her first language makes me happy. Not that she needs to read my book in German, the girl can speak/read 4 different languages. Yes, I'm impressed and feel slightly uneducated when I find out that people can speak multiple languages. Why can I only speak one?!? 

Sorry, I got off topic there for a minute. And the topic is: Germany is awesome. I love Germany.

In other news, I saw the full cover for my book! People, I love it so very much. I can't wait to share it with all of you. Soon. Very soon.

  1. Congrats on your book! I have to say I'm a lover of Germany as well. I travel there often and was fortunate enough to live there for a very short period of time (6 weeks, but hey, no complaints here). It is a beautiful country and the people are very friendly.

    What part of Germany did you visit? For a little over a year eons ago, I lived in a little town named Bad Hersfeld in northeastern Hesse. I loved it.

    1. My foreign exchange student was from Cologne. But we actually started in Austria and then traveled through southern Germany and up to Cologne. All very beautiful.

      I had no idea you lived in Germany for a year. That is so cool.
