I’m delighted to say that my forthcoming novel, The Violent Century, has sold to the Japanese publisher Tokyo Sogen. This is very cool news – first, because being published in Japan is awesome, and second, it’s not bad for a book not even published yet! This is the first translation sale for TVC, but I’m told there are others in the works right now. Hodder, meanwhile, are hard at work on finalising the UK cover, so hopefully I’ll have something to share soon.
The Bookman Histories trilogy, meanwhile, will be published in Japan by Hayakawa over the course of 2014, translated byYoshio Kobayashi. I’m very much looking forward to that.
Meanwhile, here’s Alphaville with Big in Japan.
