Canberra Launch Photos

The Canberra launch of An Ordinary Epidemic - Charlotte Harper of Editia launched the book in beautiful style and challenged me with some very interesting questions. It was great to see so many people come out on a cold Canberra night.

An Ordinary Epidemic to be published in US

An Ordinary Epidemic's publisher - MidnightSun - is going from strength to strength! From their website:
Over the last month or so MidnightSun has been hard at work behind the scenes and now we are extremely happy to announce huge successes for two of our books:
We have sold the American rights to Amanda Hickie’s An Ordinary Epidemic in a six-figure deal with Little, Brown.
We have also sold translation rights to Simplified Chinese to CTV Boler Beijing Media and Spanish rights to Ekare for Jane Jolly’s and Sally Heinrich’s One Step at a Time.
This means that MidnightSun’s books will be spread far and wide and we couldn’t possibly be any happier!
I'm incredibly excited to have the opportunity to work with such an amazing publisher in the US and grateful beyond the words I have to express it to MidnightSun and our US agent for making the impossible happen!
