It's still not out here in translated form and Sleeping Beauties is already arriving translated. Is it gonna be translated at all or is there only gonna be the English language version?

In which topic is it?
It was on his twitter feed.
Richard Chizmar on Twitter: "Bulgarian edition. https://t.co/7O1FaxIynv"
These are two separate publications. Cemetery Dance only has the publishing rights for his limited edition, not the regular edition. Those rights are negotiated with the various international publishers by Stephen's agent for foreign translations.
My mistake. I'd been working on the itinerary for the book tour so had Sleeping Beauties on my mind. I've sent an email to CD to ask if they have any information about translations.That link goes to Sleeping Beauties.
For Gwendy's Button Box there seem only two versions: signed or not signed, as far as I can tell:
Gwendy's Button Box by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar: Cemetery Dance Publications
I've heard back that foreign rights have been sold to the following countries:
More may be added later but that's the list as of today.
Yes, this is the list I got from Rich.Thanks. I asked Chizmar, and he said that he thought there would be a Dutch one coming, but had to check a list. But he doesn't really seem to be able to check it, as he hasn't given further information. But I suppose this is the list he is referring to and Netherlands isn't on it as of yet.
So true. I have put away, planning to sell, my swedish translations of King. I have book by book replaced them with original language, english that is. Cost a bit but some of the titles irked me in swedish.... Salems Lot was named Staden Som Försvann (The City That Disappeared)I think it has to do with the switch to a different publisher in The Netherlands. You can always ask this question on the forum
of the Dutch Stephen King fanclub, there is bound to be someone there who has more info...
Or read the book in the language it was meant to be in, the book is much better that way...
