Quick quessie for authors »
Yesterday I said yes to an offer to publish Liar in complex Chinese from Taiwanese publishing company, Sharp Point. They also publish such obscure books as Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies books, Garth Nix’s Key To The Kingdown series, as well as Lian Hearn’s Otori trilogy. Pretty sellar company, eh?
This is the first foreign language sale for Liar. I am dead excited. Can’t wait to see what cover it gets in Taiwan. I am hoping that Liar will be a many covered book.
If you look at the left sidebar you’ll see that the Oz & USian covers of Liar have been added. So that I’m not seen to be favouring one publisher over the other they will randomly switch back and forth. Sometimes the Oz Liar will be in front and sometimes the USian Liar. Thank you, Stephanie!

Thanks! I keep opening and closing the page just so I can see the covers toggle. That’s pretty daggy, isn’t it?

I’m going to take a stab at explanation and say ‘uncool’ but in a way that is intended and usually received, affectionately and not as a serious insult.

Oh Justine, you’re such a dag!
Daggy = unfashionable, unstylish, usually directed to the unpopular kids. Probably equates to nerdy.
Derived from the stuff that hangs off a sheep’s bum.
