One of the most exciting things to have happened to me since Burial Rites was released last year, is the publication of its various translations. So far, twenty different translations have been published, with another eight forthcoming for 2015. I've popped a full list of countries and publishers down below for those interested.
In order to celebrate the indescibable thrill of having my own book sent to me in languages I cannot even begin to fathom, and to thank my readers for your incredible support over the last two years, I'm giving away a limited amount of signed copies of Burial Rites in Dutch, German, Hebrew, Turkish, Danish, Spanish, Chinese Complex, Portuguese, French and - of course - Icelandic.
I also have several signed copies of Burial Rites in English, both in paperback and hardback to give away, and a few audiobooks too.
To enter, simply email me here with your name and address (or your friend's name and address if you would like to send one as a gift) before 10pm Sunday 26 October, Melbourne Australia time (GMT+11), and let me know what kind of copy you would like.
To allow for different time zones, winners will be chosen at random after this date.
Good luck! In the meantime, have you seen the different cover artwork from each country?
