Llevame a la Luna!


So, the other day I was tooling around the Internet conducting some research when I came across the Spanish version of FLY ME TO THE MOON (or, as I like to call it, Spanish Fly), which will be released in November 2008 in a Spanish speaking country near you! Viva Espana!

Also, I just now realized that this Wednesday, which, according to my calendar is just two days away, I will be heading to my first ever RWA National Conference (yes, I've been so ridiculously busy that I didn't realize it was actually THIS week!) and I'm really looking forward to it! Partly because it's in San Francisco, one of my favorite cities, and partly because I get to meet up with a whole bunch of friends I only know through the Internet, catch up with others I don't get to see near as much as I'd like, and gawk at all sorts of famous authors I admire like Nora Roberts and Melissa Marr and, well, basically all of these people.

And while I'm not taking part in the Literacy Signing, (basically because I wasn't totally sure I would be attending the conference until recently due to house guests, impending deadlines, etc.), or the St. Martin's signing (leaving Saturday morning due to above mentioned house guests), I will be lurking around, most likely looking extremely lost, so if you're around too, please stop by and say hi!

Well, that's probably it for the week, so have a good one!

PS-- Oh, and I forgot to mention that the Teen Fiction Cafe got a lovely mention here, calling it "funny and witty and something which teen readers all over the globe would be interested . . ."
So if you haven't stopped by yet, please do so soon!

Hey Julia- Thanks, I can't wait!

Congrats from me too! I also saw the great news on Kate's blog. Do you speak Spanish? When your book is published in all these different languages, it must be strange to see it in languages you don't speak. :)

Hey daybyday-
Thanks! And no, I don't speak Spanish, even though I am one half hispanic . . .

And yeah, it's so exciting to get the copies in the mail . . .and then I have no idea what to do with them!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Trish- Yeah, the always send a small box full of copies- they're fun to have-- even though I can't read 'em!

Hey Keri- Yup, looking forward to SF!

Love the Spanish version! Must be fun to see how your books are interpreted in so many different languages and cultures.

Hope to see you at Nationals!

Alyson Noel said...

Hey Caryn- Yup, seeing the different covers is my favorite part!
