HTDYF & Liar Audio rights sold (Updated)

I am extremely happy to let youse all know that I just said yes to a joint offer from Bolinda in Australia and Brilliance Audio in the USA to produce audio versions of How To Ditch Your Fairy and Liar.

This makes me especially happy as it guarantees an Australian actor will read How To Ditch Your Fairy. Yay! It will sound the way it’s supposed to and not like Dick Van Dyke doing a cockney accent in Mary Poppins.1

Will let you know as soon as I hear when the release dates will be.

Update: It will be simultaneous with US publication on 29 September 2009.

  1. Yes, I might possibly be referring to the audio version of the Magic or Madness trilogy. I might even be implying that it’s unspeakably bad. Maybe. []

    I was about to go out and buy the Magic or Madness audio book, but now I’m not going to.

    Obviously I was not trying to influence you in that way. Nor am I congratulating you now on having made a very wise decision.

    So the HTDYF characters have Australian accents? Good to know.

    Hi! I was wondering if it’s possible to be mailed liar and in turn I’d review it on my site:
    It looks really good!

    Amy: I’m sorry I don’t have any copies of Liar. If you would like to get an ARC (advanced readers copy) you will have to contact my publisher: Allen & Unwin in Australia or Bloomsbury in the US of A—childrens DOT publicity AT bloomsburyusa DOT com.
