I have good news; My Mother’s Garden (MMG) has been sold to Anja Leidel of KONO Design und Technologie GmbH for world German ebook right. KONO also optioned world German print and digital rights for the series.
It was a case of serendipity when I met Anja at the Frankfurt Book Fair during her very short trip around the fair halls. She was looking for illustrators and I took the chance to introduce myself and my books. I gave her a copy of MMG and two days before I return to Malaysia, she e-mailed me about her intention in translating my book to German and published it as e-book. I quickly jump at the opportunity and now the e-book is at its re-designing stage by Anja. The enhanced ebook with audio will be published before Christmas this year. It will be made available for sale at Apple’s iBook Store, and for the Google and Amazons Kindle devices.
Since it was first published in English, My Mother’s Garden has gone through a second print run and translated into Malay by Malaysian publisher Karangkraf. It has also been animated by Moker Taiwan and English digital rights sold to Perbadanan Kota Buku, Malaysia.
