Thank you so much both of you for your support and interrest. It certainly feels good being so close to the goal, it is out now in less than a month :)

If the novel is being translated and to which languages depends on the success it has in Norway - interrest has been good so far so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Thank you all of you for being so supportive! :D

FabLux: When it comes to translation, kindle and so on that is publishers decicions, not mine. However, I have had a sneak peek at amazon pages and found other books and authors from my publisher there. I hope the opportunity will come for all who are interrested to read my novel, and the Norwegian release now in august is a huge step in the right direction ;)

WI: I would be delighted to translate what's on it, just want to get the latest version first ;)... The title as you can guess is "Naked in hijab" which is the feeling the protagonist gets from being without her familiar fashion clothes, make-up, and hair-do :)

Thanks, Mirry, the title should "hook" many readers into trying it. Is the text at the bottom what you say above?

The blurb at the bottom is "Excellent about difficult love, exotic countries and family ties" :)

It was worth the 7 versions, I'm not 100% sure about the blue scarab though :lol:

Hope the publishers do decide to do the translation :)
