Kumari Prinzessin in New York

This is the cover of the German edition of Kumari, Goddess of Gotham, which has just been published by Fischer Schatzinsel in Frankfurt. Like every author on the planet (and if they deny it they’re lying) I’ve checked on Amazon.de and it seems to be going down well with four and five star reviews. For all I know, as I don’t speak German, they could be scathing in their content but, in this case, I’ll settle for blissful ignorance.

What I love about foreign editions are the variations on a title – in this case it has become Prinzessin in New York. I also love the illustration by Annabelle von Sperber and the satisfyingly chunky feel of this hardback edition. That’s the other great thing about translations…sometimes your work acquires epic proportions in the process.
