I don’t share these to toot my horn, but I’m gobsmacked at how a story about Dad and me morphed into a universal challenge to make memories.

Read Won’s message below.

Hi my name is WON DAERO. I’m Korean. I read your book well. Thank you for making such a good book.
After reading your book, I decided I should take a trip with my elderly father. My father says his dream is to ride a horse in Mongolia’s wide plains. I don’t know how to ride a horse. I express my sincere respect for your courage.

Korean

Won is determined to learn to ride. He wants to make this memory with his dad. Isn’t that astounding?? Stories are powerful. Life-altering. Necessary.

Haven’t experienced the life-altering message of my NYT bestselling memoir Not Without My Father?

surprise korean not without my father

What’s the biggest surprise I’ve had in 2018?

Not Dad’s almost dying. Or the reactivation of my eye disease. Or canceling an appearance because the group didn’t promote it.

Nope. Those are all BAD SURPRISES.

And I’ve got a STUPENDOUS SURPRISE!!!

Remember when I posted about selling Korean rights to Not Without My Father? Ages and AGES ago (read: almost three years ago), Word Hermit Press sold worldwide Korean language rights to a traditional publisher in Korea. I signed the deal, got my money, and never heard another thing about it.

Until about six months ago.

My agent reached out to ask permission to make a few minor changes to the book. How could I refuse? I mean, they could change EVERYTHING about the book and I wouldn’t know the difference. Follow THIS LINK to see what I mean.

Seriously, you want to click the link.

Did you click the link?

Because if you don’t click the link, you won’t know what it means. Hell, I’m still not sure what it means because the whole thing is in Korean. But I know one thing……..

NOT WITHOUT MY FATHER IS AVAILABLE IN KOREA!

Dad’s picture is all over Korean websites! Reviews are glowing, all four-and-five stars.

The Korean version was published in November, but neither agent nor publisher told my publisher or me. I found it because I GOT FAN MAIL. FROM A KOREAN READER.

It took both MTM and me googling for almost an hour to find the link above, SO PLEASE CLICK THE LINK.

HERE IT IS AGAIN IN CASE LOOKING FOR IT IS CHALLENGING.

I am officially an INTERNATIONALLY PUBLISHED AUTHOR!!!!!! I make less-than-no-money, so we authors must crow and crow and crow about these accomplishments. They’re a form of validation for our toil.
