“Love in a Headscarf” – announces Arabic edition
I’m extremely excited to announce that Arabic language rights for Love in a Headscarf were sold this weekend to Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Publishing. They are a great outfit based in Qatar built as a venture between the awesome Qatar Foundation, and the fabulous Bloomsbury Publishing (of Harry Potter fame) in the UK.
We’re in the process of working out the details, but it should be available in Arabic later this year, 2010.
Now, our big challenge is working out a great Arabic version of the title – any ideas?
P.S. I should add that I met the wonderful Nigel Newton, who is the CEO of Bloomsbury. I asked him for some advice on establishing yourself as an author once your first book is out, but alas I was forbidden from sharing his extremely wise words. Suffice it to say, he inspired me with great confidence that he and his team at Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation publishing will take great care of Love in a Headscarf.
