Author of Maude
Interview starts at 15:00 and ends at 44:33
I do have an agent who called me, and he’s representing Maude. She’s been translated into Italian, German, and Russian. He made the deal for the audiobook. He’s right now negotiating with a few more countries. Whatever Kindle and Amazon don’t cover as far as print copies, he will handle that for me. And hopefully some day a motion picture!
