My editor informed me yesterday that the Mexican rights to So Shelly have been sold. Previously, Portuguese rights were sold for Brazilian publication. I’m thrilled to expand Shelly’s presence in Latin America, a trend that I hope continues. I’d also love to see her take root in Europe, where a major chapter of the novel takes place and where I feel the story has a natural appeal, considering the European natures of the three main characters.
Also, Mechele R. Dillard of Atlanta’s Examiner.com has posted a favorable review of So Shelly. Check it out here: http://www.examiner.com/young-adult-literature-in-atlanta/so-shelly-by-ty-roth-ya-book-review-review
