Poppets, I am very excited to announce that the Polish edition of Seraphic Singles is now in the catalogue of Homo Dei. It is called Anielskie Single, and basically every Single person in Poland should buy a copy, making the Redemptorists happy and rich.
In my mind's eye, I see them chatting excitedly in Polish, and across their black clerical shirts run subtitles, like so:
--We have never had sales like this before!
--At this rate she will outsell Bernard Haring!
--Perhaps we should encourage her to write another book.
--We will offer her thousands and thousands of zloty.
I have no idea if the Polish Redemptorists ever say such things, but I would like them to say such things of me and my book, that is for sure.
Anyway, I have promised to come to Krakow if they like and sign copies and generally do whatever I can to encourage Poles to buy and enjoy my little book. The Redemptorists are already impressed because Urzsula nagged them about when the book is coming out (June), and they are glad that I mention it on my blog. I suspect they will be even gladder when I mention it on my blog in Polish.
The difficult part is that I don't speak or write Polish, and the words "Buy my wonderful Anielskie Single and you will laugh and be spiritually enriched" do not occur in the Berlitz phrase book.
So today I appeal to Polish readers who have already read my book in English or at very least my blog to write reviews in Polish in the combox below. I shall cut and paste and post them on a subsequent Polish-only post.
I know, I am so bossy. First I bleg money for Kat, and now I'm blegging Polish for reviews. However, soon things will be back to normal and I will post a fascinating letter or two or even tell you what happens next to Katie's gang at the University of Mysterious.
