AUGUST 2010 – CHINA & GERMANY

Uncategorized — admin @ 3:21 am

Some bestseller list updates. CHILD 44 is one of the bestselling books at the moment in China, on amazon.cn the chart position has been as high as number 3 across all fiction. Often I’m asked what is the most surprising element of being published and the answer is always the international sales. It never crossed my mind that the book would sell so well abroad. To be the best selling English language work of fiction in China is incredible. I’m thrilled and plan to visit the country soon. The cover is very stylish, and completely different to any other edition, a night sky, rather than a day scene. Coincidentally the new American trade paperback edition will use a night sky and is similar in style. That edition will be released next year. Always in the UK we’re repackaging all the books for the release of THE LAST ADVERSARY next year, so both CHILD 44 and THE SECRET SPEECH will have a new look.

In Germany THE SECRET SPEECH, or KOLYMA as it is titled there, has been released in paperback and has reached number 10 in the charts. Over 120,000 copies have been sold, taking the total number of copies of THE SECRET SPEECH sold to well over 500,000 with more to come as the paperback rolls out internationally. With the sales in CHINA, CHILD 44 has now passed 1.5 million copies internationally.

  1. Hi, Tom. First off, belated congratulations from a fellow scribe from across the pond. I just bought Child 44 at Borders tonight and was sucked in after the 18 page prologue. I fully plan on getting The Secret Speech when I finish Child 44.

    I have a book under consideration at your publisher, Grand Central Publishing (Ben Greenberg, their new senior editor, invited me to send my novel American Zen after I pitched him on the phone last month). However, that book is very atypical for me as the genre in which I usually write happens to be yours. In fact, I’m in the middle of writing a series about a former Soviet militisiya/NYPD detective/vigilante. If you want to write me in private, you already have my email. I think you’ll be glad you wrote. I’m not just some wannabe (although try convincing several dozens of brain-dead literary agents that).

    Once again, congratulations and I wish you continued and increasing success.

  2. Hello,

    Sorry about the delay in replying to this. I’m pleased you enjoyed CHILD 44 and thanks for advice on the title for the third novel, AGENT 6 will be the title in Germany, the UK and Japan – each publisher makes their own decision based upon their feelings and their sense of the market.

    Let me know how it went with the novel. I wish you all the best with it.

    Warm regards

    Tom
