How Do You Say Surprise In French*

* That’s a rhetorical question.

But seriously – I had a wonderful surprise two days ago, when I discovered that GIRL’S GUIDE TO WITCHCRAFT has been translated into French.  It’s undergone a title change – the book is called "Comment je suis devenue irresistible!" ("How I Became Irresistible!")  The write up, on Amazon, talks about how the heroine has become irresistible to men, but it never mentions that she’s a witch!  (It’s also written in the first person, so I don’t know if Jane’s name was changed for the book.)

I don’t have a copy yet, but I’m trying to get one.  In the meantime, I leave you with the Amazon.fr link – http://www.amazon.fr/Comment-je-suis-devenue-irr%C3%A9sistible/dp/2280812061 – and the cover photo:

      Hi – I was wondering if there is a fourth book coming in the Jane Madison series? I could swear I read that at the end of the book……I’m dying to know if there’s one more adventure for Jane!

        The book mentioned at the end of MAGIC AND THE MODERN GIRL is called “THERE’S THE RUB”. The title was changed – it’s now HOW NOT TO MAKE A WISH, and it’s the first volume in the As You Wish series, which appeared in bookstores on October 1. I may go back to Jane’s story in the future, but for now, I’m playing in the wonderful world of genies!

  6. Mon Dieu!

  7. Kinda late but congrats! Cute cover!

    Over at harlequin.fr, it mentions “Jane Madison” so I guess they didn’t change her name. Uh…it also says it’s your first novel, though. :S

  8. Will there be a new adventure for Jane? I’m dying to know, I miss the characters, they’re so great!

    • Thanks for the kind words! I don’t have any plans to write more adventures for Jane right now, but that could change in the future!
