#MyrtleMondays: Foreign Edition Fun

Myrtle’s busy month continues! In addition to the big Cold-Blooded Myrtle tour we talked about last week, this week I have some fun updates on the Russian and German editions of Premeditated Myrtle!

First up, the German edition, Mord im Gewächshaus, translated by Nadine Mannchen, is now available (and blog reviews are pouring in)! I’m still waiting for my copies to arrive (!!), but a Certain Someone in my household did some sleuthing and found this awesome catalogue copy from publisher Kenesebeck-Verlag:

I’m not entirely sure what those little booklets are at the bottom left, but they look like they might be conference teasers…?! I don’t know, but I want one!

If you happen to speak German, let us know what that blue bubble says! (Google Translate doesn’t do German well. I was not elucidated.)

This next tidbit comes via Myrtle’s Russian publisher, Five Quarters, Издательство “Пять четвертей”. This week they posted the exciting news that Premeditated Myrtle is their first international translation. But wait! There’s more!

Yes, you read that right: there will be illustrations! I have loved the interior artwork on the American Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries—both Brett Helquist’s sketches and the brilliant work of the design team with titles, placards, and other graphics–and I can’t wait to see what Julia Dobrovolskaya does with Myrtle, Peony, and Swinburne for my Russian readers!

I have another stop on my book tour this afternoon—this one with Swamp Fox Books in Marion, Iowa. You can still register here!
