The Penny Tree released in France

I find it interesting to examine the various takes on covers and titles when novels get published in foreign countries. Here's the cover for The Penny Tree (which was obviously retitled) released May 22nd in France.

I've also learned that Quebec Loisirs, Canada's French book club, bought subrights and plans to promote the book this fall in their catalogue. It's all good stuff, and I'm grateful it unfolds the way it does because it helps spur me on to be working on novel #4 when there's still lots happening with novel #2.

(What she said above)

I guess it must be pretty kewl to watch your "old babies" popping up in foreign countries long after they've been published here.

Go Penny Tree!

Holly Kennedy said...

Thanks, all.

My husband said the new title means ONE MORE CHANCE or A SECOND CHANCE or something like that. *shrug* Doesn't matter.

The story remains the same.
