Sweet Hearts in Vietnamese!

I had a lovely surprise the other day – a parcel arrived containing copies of two of my Sweet Hearts books in Vietnamese!

Strictly Friends? and Forget Me Not

Aren’t they gorgeous? I had no idea they were coming! You see, when you sell ‘world rights’ for a book to a publisher, that means they can sell your books overseas without asking you (I would have said YES obviously!) – and often the author doesn’t even know until a copy plops onto our doormat! I am SO thrilled with these versions; they’re illustrated inside too!

I was also fascinated to see that some pages have footnotes – obviously in Vietnam they’re not so familiar with skateboarding jargon like ‘nollie’ and ‘kickflip’ and there’s an explanation of ‘BMX’ too!

I love seeing my books translated into other languages – and now I have a sudden urge to visit Vietnam 🙂

  1. Hi Zoey and Samantha! *waves madly* I’m so sorry, there are no plans for further Sweet Hearts books at the moment…sob! But maybe one day in the future…!
    I hope you’ll keep an eye out for my brand new novel LOOKING AT THE STARS though – it’s out at the end of January! (and if you’re anywhere near Oxford, you’re welcome to come to my launch party 😉 ) Jo x
