How do you say "Witch Song & Witch Born" in French?

Wednesday, July 9, 2014
Because foreign rights for both books have sold to Lumen Publishing in Paris! I'm so excited! They've already been great to work with, very accommodating and helpful. And just look at the font they chose for the cover!!! I actually like it better than the font we're currently using. Might have to rethink that a little.

They will publish both Witch Song and Witch Born, and they have plans to acquire Witch Rising and Witch Fall in the future.

That means Witch Song will be published in 3 languages (Indonesian, English, and French!). It brings me so much joy to know that something I created can be shared with so many people, whom I could never touch any other way.

Also, does anyone know what the phrase below says?

    "Will the Last of witches succeed to prevent their song to die out" is the most correct translation i think^^

    i'm really REALLY happy to hear that you will be published in French, i don('t know that publisher by the way but i do like the cover.
    if you need French native reviewer for that edition ( and if the publisher send in belgium) you can count on me^^

    i also wated to know if the address for sending things to Connor is still teh same ( now that you are moving) because i finally found what i wanted to give him

    oh i forgot:
    Witch Song= "Le chant de La sorcière"
    Witch Born = "Née Sorcière" ( ou Sorcière de naissance" )

  1. Miki: I love the font they chose! Have you tried tweeting them to ask for a review copy? https://twitter.com/LumenEditions

    It is. We're not moving for another month, so it should be fine. If not, our mail will be forwarded for a while. I'm sure he'll be thrilled! He's had a rough week with breaking his ankle.

  1. Hi there !

    i'm actually the graphic designer working for Lumen editions :)
    I was on your blog, hoping i could find the name of the illustrator who designed the third book cover, and then i find your post about the french edition ^^

    It's really kind of you to speak about the release, and i'm very happy (and proud ^^) you loved the font (it's the "trajan pro" by the way, but i redraw some of the letters).

    Miki made a good translation here !
    For the website, it's a work in progress. We hope to release it between september and november, but there is so much to do...

    For the mail contact, i unfortunately can't put it here on a blog, but you can find us on facebook if you prefer !

    Thanks again ^^ - See more at: http://amberargyle.blogspot.fr/2014/07/how-do-you-say-witch-song-witch-born-in.html#comment-form

  1. Mathieu: You did an excellent job! It's absolutely beautiful.

  1. I ask to the person in charge of the communication at lumen edition, and she's ok for posting her adress email here ^^

    So here we are :

    presse@editions-lumen.com

  1. Thank you Amber ^^
    It's really rare for me to have feedback from other than the staff here, and it's especially great when it's from the author herself ! that's what i love the most in my job : designing something and see it printed and exposed in shops, and watch the reaction of people, hoping they will like it and want to buy the book !

    so i'm very glad you love what we did with your book, and the fact you trust us with it :)

    you can be proud of the cover yes and we are all happy when an author do exchange with us, nopw i'm curious of what you will do for the rest of the series

  1. haha... i'm already working on the witch born (almost done for the most of the design, text cover will be done only a few weeks before the printing, and i think it will be released in about a year from now) and on the witch fall ! logo have been made altogether, to be sure they would work together...
