You may not have noticed but Little Gods is turning up in English all over the world, from New Zealand through Europe to Canada. If you've read it, do you think it might be right for Scandinavian translations?

The interview will be posted throughout the four week tour. Weeks two, three and four will have different articles hosted by and posted at other webblog sites. Would love to interact with you along the way.
In addition, each time during the four week tour you leave a comment and/or ask a question your name will be placed into a drawing for a Free Signed Copy of Blue Heron Marsh.. Hope to see you all there.
P.S. Please feel free to forward this invitation to your own email address list. The more people who participate, the happier I will be.
Don't worry, your book was a new years gift good enough. And yes, suddenly this lady-writer from Nashville, i think, pops up with a hello in fluent norwegian. she even tells me she grew up in Grefsen, a cosy residential area in Oslo. - What about you? Anything new and exciting happening to you and your writing in the new year?
Forgive me for not wishing Happy New Year before.
Happy New Year.
It looks as if you have someone corresponding with you in Norwegian. At least I hope it's Norwegian. Certainly she thinks its Norwegian. How awkward it would be if you had to tell her it was Swedish!
Hi Olav - welcome aboard my books are published in Norway - by, I hope I spell it correctly, schibsted forlagene.
They do quite well there and my newest work just received and endorsement from Hakan Nesser,
Sadly Granny Ebba died some years ago (though I have commemorated her in my next Samuel Carver book, in which a woman with her name, appearance and character appears). So I can't call her this Christmas ... But I am very glad, and very touched that you enjoyed The Accident Man. It was an absolute b*gger to write - it's nice to think that the effort was worth it! (The second one's even harder, by the way ...)
