Turkey in April?

Yesterday I learned that six of my books are going to be sold in Turkey. Apart from the fact that this will help to pay the bills, this is very exciting news. (For me, all new translations are exciting.)
I live in Ireland, and all of my books are set here. I’ve never been to Brazil, or Russia or Serbia or Australia, but my books have been to these places, and more besides. In these countries, children are reading about Alice and Megan and Eva and Lauren and Tilly. Maybe one day these children will visit Ireland to see if it’s anything like the place they read about when they are little. (Let’s hope they’re not disappointed!)
My books are travelling the world without me, and I think that’s very, very cool.
