Adept(e) • 17 November 2005 • The SnowBlog


We had a big parcel on Monday from City Editions, the French publisher of Adept, our best-selling thriller. And what did it contain, but ten beautiful copies of the French edition!

"Un best-seller haletant qui a reçu un formidable accueil public et critique en Grande-Bretagne."

Adept has now been sold to German, France, Serbia & Montenegro, Greece, Romania Italy and Bulgaria, as well as into talking book and large print format in this country, so look forward to seeing a host of other covers appearing here soon.

One of the best bits about foreign editions is undoubtedly finding out what other people need explaining, as in this footnote:

(2) Célèbre série télévisée comique diffusée à la fin des années 1970 par la BBC, se déroulant dans un hôtel dirigé par un gérant tyrannique et farfelu (John Cleese, des Monty Python).

Can you guess what it is yet?  

The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
