Heading for Warsaw
No, no ...NOT Wausau ...
I've been amazed over the past months at the popularity of my books in the rest of the world. Turns out that foreign publishers actually realize that they have to (gasp!) promote a book . Imagine that!
Anyway, my books have been hugely popular, especially in Europe. The recent royalty check from Germany was stunning and Polish translations have done so well that my publisher there is paying for my wife and I to fly to Warsaw for a promotional tour.
When Vanity Fair flew me to Rome this spring for a photo shoot, I stopped over in Amsterdam where I met with my Dutch publisher who -- ever the professional -- showed me their upcoming promo campaign.I can only imagine how refreshing it would be to have an American publisher who showed such enthusiasm and had an appreciation for promotion.
