Hooray for Bollywood!

Dears,

india

Big news! Great news!

Brain in a Jar publishing rights for the Indian Subcontinent have been sold to Fingerprint Press in Delhi.

What does that mean, exactly, you ask?
Here, I translate:
  • BIAJ will come out in the English Language, in paperback, for audiences in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan,  Pakistan, Myanmar, Bhutan, and Maldives.
  • The story will be the same; the cover and design will be different.
  • I do not yet know a publication date.
  • Perhaps most exciting to me is the fact that the contract requires that I make a book-related appearance in India after publication.

After telling David the news, I inadvertently screamed out, “Hooray for Hollywood!”

To which he said, “You mean: Hooray for Bollywood!” Gods and goddess, I love that boy. bolyywood

What I really mean is that — in any language or any place — this couldn’t have been scripted any better.

Thank you, India (and Priya and Fingerprint), for inspiring my father and part of my story. Brain in a Jar will feel right at home with you. See you soon.

Love,

Nancy
