I had to go back into the hospital at the beginning of this week and with a heavy heart back to wearing a catheter for possibly 6 weeks until I’m ready for yet another operation. So not unnaturally I was feeling quite sorry for myself when at home, on Wednesday evening, opening my emails and trying to catch-up on everything.
As I scanned through them I came across four messages from my publishers and they all looked the same—‘We hope this message finds you well! We’ve recently released an updated edition of your translation, with improved layout, cover design and keywords. We have also moved to a new Universal Book Link that you can find here:
https://books2read.com/u/3k1eeW —- It then explained to me what they had done with this revised version of The Desolate Garden.
As I say, they all looked the same but because I’m curious I clicked on the link in the next email—- https://books2read.com/u/bMpwwX and once more found The Desolate Garden, but this time it was translated into Portuguese.
Interest mounting I clicked on the link in the third email— https://books2read.com/u/bwvary and found—- What Happened In Vienna? translated into Spanish.
Finally, with a wide smile fixed on my face, I clicked on the link in the fourth and last email— https://books2read.com/u/b68vzp finding my novella–Why? made available by my benevolent publishers in Portuguese.
I am hugely honoured and obviously, I’m not so despondent at being home.
