Bonjour, Mistress of Rome

Tags: mistress of rome, foreign editions

My French edition of "Mistress of Rome" is out! And with a spiffy new cover too, sort of a bloodier version of my UK cover. You know it's a good day when you wake up to read a French blogger sniffing that your villainess is "a dirty little pest."

This marks twelve languages for "Mistress of Rome." Not all have been released yet - translation takes time - but "Mistress of Rome" will or has already appeared in America, the UK, Germany, Bulgaria, Spain, the Czech Republic, Croatia, France, Russia, Slovenia, Hungary, and Turkey. I could not be happier, or prouder, for my firstborn.
