Thankfully, I will not be doing the translating. :)

So, STAY is going to be a book in Italy too!!!


I still can’t get over the fact that STAY is getting published in the United States, (over six months since the deal was announced and I’m still pinching myself) so this is just . . . amazing!

From Publisher’s Weekly – it’s under Penguin, if you go to the article (which is a great write up of books up for foreign sale at the Frankfurt Book Fair this year, btw):

“From Dutton, there’s Allie Larkin’s novel Stay, about a woman who mends her broken heart with some canine love from a German shepherd; the June 2010 title has sold in Italy.”

And, no matter how many times I check the link and read it again, my name is still there.

I have to run to the store to pick up something for dinner. You know I’m going to start crying in Wegmans again. :)


  1. My being a blonde I posted my comment in the wrong section.

    I can’t wait to read your book!!!

  2. That’s awesome! Congratulations.

  3. That is awesome, Allie. Big congrats!

  4. Congratulations! Or should it be saluti e congratulazioni!

    Actually maybe not, my Italian is really rusty.

  5. Woo-hooooooo! I’ve always wanted to learn Italian; now I have a good reason!

    When will the English language version be published? I would love to buy a signed copy when it is.

    I suspect the Italian language version would be wasted on me.

    I just read your post about getting stuck in the dress. Made me laugh. It has happened to me too – I really honestly thought I would never get out of the thing!

  7. Hooray!

  8. Yay, you! Congrats again!

  9. It just keeps get better!

  10. That is SO exciting. I cannot wait to read Stay!!!
