… and Bulgaria makes 18!

We just found today: we are turning 18!

How’s that? Well, we just learned from Brooke Carey, our wonderful editor at Portfolio, that there is now a Bulgarian edition of The Go-Giver in the works.

On the heels of the recent addition of a Hungarian edition (that would be #17), that now brings to eighteen the total number of foreign-language editions!

  1. Hi
    I notice that Italy is not in the list.
    Since I wrote some books on business and know some publisher, is there something I can do for you to help landing in Italy?
    In case you believe that could be an option, just ask, I’ll be pleased to do what I can to help you in any way.

    • Hi Paolo,

      I wrote to you on email as well, but thought I’d answer here, too, in case you see this first!

      Thanks so much for writing, and pointing this out. We would LOVE to have an Italian edition on the market, of course — every time a new edition comes out, we figure there are that many more people we’re reaching with our message!

      if you know of an Italian publisher who yuo think might be interested in producing an Italian edition of The Go-Giver, please let us know, and we will connect them with our US publisher here to discuss Italian rights!

      Grazie, Paolo!

  2. Wow, you got Chinese version of Go-Giver, where can I get it? Mind to give me the link?
