Congratulations to Lia Fairchild! She was the winner of the signed paperback and coffee mug. Thank you to everyone who participated. I’ll have another giveaway soon.


Hello everyone!

I thought I’d do a quick giveaway for a signed paperback of On the Island and also a ‘Keep Calm And Kiss T.J.’ coffee mug.

All you have to do is “like” my Facebook author page (you can find the URL on the giveaway). If you’ve already “liked” my Facebook author page (thank you!) then simply share my page on your Facebook wall or Twitter. I post all kinds of information on my page such as reviews, giveaways, information on upcoming projects, and pictures of my dog.

I don’t care where you live because this giveaway is for everyone. Seriously. I have a whole stack of customs forms on my desk. Takes only a minute or two to fill one out so don’t be shy if you live outside the U.S.

I also want to take a quick moment to tell my Italian readers how much I enjoy their comments on my Facebook author page. On the Island was recently released in Italy and I get a big kick out of corresponding with readers who live so far away.

The giveaway won’t start until 12:00 noon CST so check back in a few hours.

Good luck!

P.S. I’ll do another giveaway soon for a signed paperback and a Keep Calm And Kiss Anna mug. I don’t want the boys to feel left out!

Hello everyone!
Some of you have asked on my Facebook page about what languages/countries On the Island will be available in. Lauren Abramo, my awesome foreign rights agent, put together this wonderful list so I thought I’d pass it on. I don’t know all the publication dates, but foreign covers are starting to show up on my Facebook wall thanks to awesome readers all over the world. I sure do appreciate when they do that. 
Here’s the Russian cover. I love the starfish and the heart. Look how funky my name is in Russian.
Here’s the Italian cover. I think it’s gorgeous!
*And check out this trailer that popped up in yesterday’s Google alerts. It’s absolutely breathtaking. I probably only watched it a normal number of times. Like 2 or 3. Probably.
When foreign rights to On the Island first started selling, one of the things I got really excited about was the fact that the publishers would be sending me 2-4 copies of each book. I can’t wait to put a copy of each edition on the bookshelves in my office.
Here’s the roundup of all the publishers who have bought the foreign rights to On the Island:
UK/Ireland/Australia/New Zealand/India/South Africa/Commonwealth: Michael Joseph/Penguin (On the Island & Covet).
Brazil: Editora Intrinseca

China: Beijing Zhengqing Culture & Art

Croatia: Znanje

Czech Republic: Euromedia 

Denmark: Forlaget Turbulenz

France: Editions Bragelonne

Germany: Goldmann/Random House

Greece: Papadopoulos

Israel: Kinneret

Italy: Garzanti

Latvia: Zvaigzne

Netherlands: Luitingh-Sijthoff

Norway: Aschehoug

Poland: Albatros

Portugal: ASA/Grupo LeYa 

Russia: Azbooka/Atticus

Slovak Republic: Ikar

Spain: Ediciones Salamandra

Sweden: Forum Bokförlag

Taiwan: Kate Publishing

Turkey: Epsilon Yayincilik
Hungary: Pioneer Books
Indonesia:  PT Kairos Gradien Mediatama
I’ll share more covers and trailers as they come in.
Have a great day, everyone!

*Watching a book trailer repeatedly has a negative effect on productivity. Apparently.
