And, my favorite, Hyvää päivää — that’s Finnish.
Looking forward to talking to Taryn Fagerness (Taryn Fagerness Agency), who specializes in representing foreign rights on behalf of North American literary agents and publishers. The Agency also represents a select number of authors domestically.
Here at Joy on Paper, we will crown Taryn the Queen o Foreign Rights. Her kingdom is expansive and her language skills legendary as she covers — Albania, Arabic, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, French-Canada, Catalan, China, Czech, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latin America and South America, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UK and British
Wow! Every authors dream is to have a shelf lined with their books translated into all those languages.
Taryn is a dynamic presence. It is going to be a fun interview! Don’t miss it on February 13th at 11:00 a.m. EST.
