Portuguese Rights

I knew about this for a bit, but I wanted to wait until things had developed a little further before announcing it. Well, I can’t keep it in any longer; I’m spilling the beans, so here it is: the Portuguese rights for The Princes of the Golden Cage have sold. Woohoo! This is my first ever foreign rights sale! And I am totally ecstatic about it! : ) The publisher is Grupo Saida De Emergencia. They do a lot of fantasy titles by well-known authors, so I’m in very good company.

Author and translator extraordinaire Renato Carreira was kind enough to give me the Portuguese working title of the book, which is Os Príncipes da Jaula Dourada. Isn’t it pretty?
