Over the past few months I have been getting a steady flow of mails from German fans of The Faerie Path (called Elfennacht in Germany), asking me when books five and six will be appearing in their country.
Unfortunately, I have bad news for my German fans - the final two books of the Faerie Path series are not going to be published in Germany. The publisher has decided not to continue with the series - and has stopped it right on the cliffhanger of book 4! I am very disappointed and upset about this, as you can imagine, but there is absolutely nothing I can do about changing their minds. It would have made more sense for them to only publish the first three books than to leave readers hanging in the air with the end of book 4!
I have been suggesting to my German fans that they might wish to buy the final two books in English and try reading them either with a friend who can read English or with a dictionary at their side. This is not a great solution to the problem, but I really don’t know what else to suggest.
The only other possibility, is that if enough fans in Germany make contact with the publisher, demanding that the books be published in German - a large enough pile of letters might make a difference. I don’t know if this would be the case, but it might be worth trying!
Meanwhile, to all my German fans - my apologies that you will not be able to read Tania’s continuing adventures in your own language, and huge thanks to you for being so loyal through the four books that you have read.
