Which language does your heart speak?
One of my dreams is to make my books available in multiple languages. “The Children’s Meditations in my Heart” is already available in English, Norwegian, Spanish and Danish and more books are available in English.
Today I was approached by a translator from Poland, who has already begun translating In my heart to Polish. I had notices some activity in Poland recently in the world overview sales report.
“Dziecięce medytacje W moim sercu” is your Polish title. I love languages and speak English, German and French myself. Polish is similar to Croatian, which I tried to learn, when we lived there for a couple of years. I didn’t really succeed in that I must say. I do recognize the word children though – which in Croatian would be “dječji” in some form.
There is an amazing story behind each of my translations that have all been initiated by women with amazing, beautiful, big hearts. They all have a desire to bring my book out in their mother tongue.
It has made me reflect about the language of our hearts. Which language does your heart speak? I have a theory that it speaks the language that we were first introduced to a loving language in. So most often the mother tongue of our parents.
Is that true for you?
These women who have read my books to their children have obviously been able to read one of my translations but have had a desire to read it to their children in their mother tongue. They also want children in their home country to know the book. I find that fascinating.
Can you help us?
Right now we are actively searching for publishers to publish the books in Polish, Dutch and Arabic.
We are also focusing on North America right now for the English and Spanish version that have already been published. In North America we are looking for vendors, influencers, podcasts, speaking engagements etc. Any help is appreciated.
If you happen to know a publisher in any of these areas or want the book in your mother tongue and know publishers or agents, we are SO happy to hear from you. I am on a mission to teach 1 million kids to fill their hearts with love and share their heartlight with the world. All your help is appreciated. The more diverse the reading crowd is, the happier I will be.
In my heart
