International again ...

September is an iffy month for me. I have to get used to tell people I'm a year older - that in itself can be traumatic - it's also the month when it's no longer possible to ignore autumn. There's firewood for the winter to order, the winter tyres, woolen  socks to find and the extra windows to bring down from the attic. This September apparently has had more rain than any other September in recorded history. Jeez, you don't say ...
So when I learn that one of our books have been published in Denmark, I'm thrilled. Just the kind of news that's nice to know on a rainy evening.
The book was picked up by a Danish publisher about three years ago, and we've more or less forgotten all about it. If you read Danish there's a review on DR (Denmark Radio): Review of The Attic. And if you want more this is the publisher's page: The Attic on Forum (Rosinante publishers). They have bought the next in the series: The Changeling, so hopefully the'll also buy The Park, and publish both. Fingers crossed!

I have tendency to think that Sweden and Denmark isn't really International, but that's not right of course! Since Denmark is - even if the language is more or less the same - another country, it's International. I doubt if a British writer would consider a publication in the US as domestic ...

These feet have walked where legends once stood. It’s kind of cool.

Who the legends are? Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp, of course.The Bounty was in Oslo for a few days, and of course we had to check it out. where Captain This is the ship where Marlon Brando was the dashing Christian Fletcher! This is also the ship Jack Sparrow was so keen on getting back.
The ship as commissioned by the movie company in the early sixties, so not so old. And surprisingly small.
A great way to spend a Friday afternoon – and lucky for us, this was the only day this weekend that it didn’t rain.

I'm still getting use to my new computer. Otherwise there would even be som pics of me, but I can't get Anans Sony Ericsson to work with my Toshiba. I have no  idea why. I can't get the printer to connect either, so it's a bit of a mystery, really. But at least I'm using it. I had it in the box for almost a month before even unpacking it ...
