I wanted to share the gorgeous cover of the Arabic language edition of Mephisto Club. It’s my first title to be published in the Arabic language, and I’m really curious how it will sell overseas. I love this image:
While this cover is beautiful, I must admit that some of my other foreign editions have had some puzzling cover designs. One recent foreign edition had a photo of — get this — three dead fish. (Were they trying to tell me something?)
At least half my fan mail now comes from overseas readers, and I’ve had a sudden influx of reader mail from Turkey. Just another reminder of how international the book market is.
