I’ve got some good news on the translation front.  Newton Compton has bought the Italian rights to PAYING THE PIPER for a hardback release.  This is my second book with them.  And Limos has bought the Turkish rights to THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY.   This is my first book with them, although my second Turkish book, so I hope this is the start of something good with Limos.

I love that my books get translated across the world.  It’s amazing to think people around the world get to discover my stories.  There are some countries that I still hope will pick up my books.  I’m looking at you Japan and Sweden.  🙂

Here’s hoping…

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY has racked up another milestone in its amazing history.  My publisher Thomas & Mercer informed me that Zoe Sutton’s first thriller has crossed 400,000 copies sold mark.  This book’s juggernaut progress has been stunning.  Thanks to everyone who bought the book and if haven’t read it, this might be the time to start.

T&M have said they are sending me something to mark the occasion.  I’m hoping it’s a dollar for every book sold…

ASKING FOR TROUBLE: The road to crime begins with a single decision—the wrong one.  Not every decision belongs to the criminally minded.  Some belong to the ill-informed, the weak and the plain unlucky.  In these tales, trouble isn’t an indiscriminate force of nature.  It’s a manmade occurrence that comes when called upon.

Die Abrechnung des Kinderfängers: Über Jahre hinweg wurde der Entführer mit dem Spitznamen »der Kinderfänger« reich, indem er serienweise die Kinder der wohlhabendsten Familien San Franciscos entführte. Als der Kriminalreporter Scott Fleetwood einen Anruf von einem Mann erhält, der sich als der Kinderfänger ausgibt und ein exklusives Interview anbietet, packt Fleetwood die Gelegenheit beim Schopf. Aber der Anrufer erweist sich als Schwindler, und die überhastete Entscheidung kostet das aktuelle Opfer des echten Kinderfängers das Leben. Acht lange Jahre lebt Fleetwood mit der unerträglichen Schuld und der beständigen Verachtung der gesamten San Francisco Bay Area. Nun hört er vom echten Kinderfänger – und diesmal geht es nicht um ein Interview. Der Kidnapper hat den Sohn des Reporters. Aber er will kein Geld … er will Blut. Und er wird Fleetwood dazu benutzen, es zu bekommen.

pourriture-simon-woodI’m happy to announce the release of POURRITURE, the French edition of ROAD RASH.  After the success of my first French book, L’évadée, it was only natural to give French readers something else to chew on.  I’m looking forward to see their response to this story.

For those who read French, the storyline goes a little like this:

James Straley peut bien penser que son existence est maudite, mais elle n’a rien de comparable avec ce qui l’attend sur l’autoroute de la vie. Il est en fuite avec le butin d’un vol de banque loupé. C’est tout ce qu’il possède. Ses acolytes sont morts et sa voiture vient de tomber en panne. Il est à pied, avec l’argent, quand il aperçoit deux voitures impliquées dans un carambolage. Il lui est impossible de sauver les conducteurs, mais il peut se sauver lui-même en s’appropriant l’une des épaves. Manque de chance, il vole la mauvaise bagnole. Après une heure derrière le volant, il commence à développer une urticaire qui dévore sa chair. Aucun médecin ne peut l’aider – seul le propriétaire initial de la voiture en a le pouvoir. Si Straley veut récupérer sa peau, il doit entreprendre un long voyage sur le chemin de la rédemption, un voyage qui s’achèvera au cœur de l’Amérique Centrale.

So if you’re French or know someone French, I hope you’ll give this book a shot.
