Thank you @Sourcebooks Rights Manager Sara Hartman-Seeskin!

For the sale of the foreign rights to Japan for THE FIRE LORD'S LOVER...AND for sending me a copy of the book. Here's a copy of the Japanese cover:



How cool is that? I lived several years in Okinawa when my dad was in the Air Force, and have fond memories of the people and island, so this is especially thrilling for me. My son has a friend who is studying the Japanese language, and I'm looking forward to her translating some of the book to me. It will be fascinating to hear how my voice has changed (although I imagine much will be in the hands of the translator, hence her name right by mine on the cover). It's interesting that the book is about 2/3 the size of an American paperback. It also has a dust jacket, which you usually only see on hardcover books.

Have I mentioned lately how much I adore my publisher, Sourcebooks?

Below is a picture of my family in Okinawa, and the backside of me running after my older sister on a beach in Okinawa. We lived there from 1963-65. The photo after that is, of course, my American cover of THE FIRE LORD'S LOVER.

#My Hopes for the New Year! @kathrynekennedy



My hopes for a Happy New Year!


Health. Since I haven’t had it in a while, and it has caused me to fall behind on all of my goals.
A chance to meet new friends and reconnect with old ones.
Peace within and without.
Patience. With everything.
You. My reader. Trying my best to continue to write magical stories that can help you escape the real world for a little while.

Never Criticize, Condemn, or Complain. I read this years ago and it has been my mantra since, although it’s really hard to follow all the time.
Endeavoring to continue to show more love to family, friends, and my darling dogs.
Write, write, write!

Yucky stuff in, yucky stuff out. Keeping the good stuff coming into my brain, keeps good stuff coming out of my mouth.
Exciting new opportunities!
Always continuing to focus on the positive.
Reading as many new books as possible.

What hopes would you write for each letter? Sometimes when you put them in concrete form it’s easier to focus on them. And I do hope yours, and mine,  come true this year!

My Magical Best,
Kathryne
