So far, my books have been published in 13 different languages!
You can read me in Italian, Portuguese, Afrikaans, Spanish, German, Turkish, Dutch, Chinese, Swedish, Indonesian, French, Greek, Arabic. And of course, ENGLISH – although some would say I’m mostly unreadable in English. (I don’t talk to those people.)
But… not every book has been done in each of those languages.
What’s the best way to get the point across and not muddy up the message???
Here’s the book and what language it’s in, just to give examples (and yeah, to brag a little):
Italian, Portuguese, Afrikaans,
The Terrible Twos

Okay, so now that I’ve had a chance to gloat… how do you say your books are in 13 different languages (14 if you count English) and not give the impression each book is in each language? Or do you just let people figure that out?
SOME of my books appear in 13 languages? That sounds lame…
I’ve been published in 13 different foreign languages? Sounds like maybe all my books have been. They haven’t.
I have published X titles in 13 foreign languages (X because technically each book counts as a separate title for each language it appears in. Confusing, right?)
I have 17 books published in more than a dozen languages – ambiguous. Could mean each book is in every language again. (But it sounds impressive as hell.)
Okay by now I’ve confused myself. That’s why I asked.
