I’m always surprised and a little amazed when I receive emails from my readers that live outside the U.S. I’d always hoped I would become a published author, but to think there are people reading my books all around the world leaves me speechless. And I can imagine anyone that knows me saying, “CC speechless? No way!” It’s true that doesn’t happen very often, but seriously, I recently got an email from a girl in Zimbabwe! She likes my books—my books, from little old me, a girl from Alabama that took a chance and followed her dream. I am amazed, humbled and so grateful for my success.
Now many of those emails from overseas readers ask about release dates for my books in their countries. You see, when a book comes out in the U.S., it doesn’t get released in other countries on the same day. Oh no, those readers have to wait. While I wish there was a global release date, it really varies by country. So, I asked my publisher for my foreign release dates, and I just got the list, so I wanted to share it with those loyal fans who wait patiently (well, not always patiently) to read my next book. I have listed the next release date and book title for each country, and if I don’t have an upcoming release date, I listed the last release date and book title.
