Sometimes it’s very worthwhile to have a Myspace

Sometimes it’s very worthwhile to have a Myspace, especially when you get emails like this: “I read a lot of YA novels in English, and I've found SHOCK POINT unputdownable, quite terrifying in its own way - though very realistic. … I wanted to mention it to one of the French publishers I work with (as a freelance "reader" & translator). Do you know if the rights have been sold in France?”

It told her they haven’t, although Learning to Fly has done very, very well in France. Buried Diamonds just came out this spring and received great reviews in several magazines. One even called me a “queen of crime.” [Full disclosure: at least that’s what Babelfish told me, but Babelfish could by lying.]
