Great news! Penguin Canada will be publishing The Beggar’s Opera in the U.S. under one of its imprints! I’m not completely sure of the details: it may be a Penguin Canada/ Penguin US collaboration, but the new imprint will be called Pintail. Pintail is just getting up and running on Twitter and Facebook, but I’m sure they’d be happy to have some followers and fans!
I think there may be a subtitle added to the title of the book: perhaps “An Inspector Ramirez Mystery” or something similar so that no one thinks it’s a book about the opera, but I’m thrilled!
Pre-orders in August, and there will be a US e-book version of the book too. So hang on, everyone — I’ll keep you posted!
