This month, in February 2013, Abbottsbooks has big celebration. We celebrate one year of Antusiasme (Enthusiasm in Indonesian version) and three years of Enthusiasm by interviewing some authors who have read Antusiasme/Enthusiasm or been engaged in the same book events with its author, Fida Abbott. Who are they? Please, stay tuned! This will be an exciting event since Indonesian readers have been so enthusiastic to read this book and participate in the several events. Also, Enthusiasm has received Pinnacle Book Achievement Award from North American Bookdealer Exchange (NABE) for Spring 2010 in the category of novel. One year later, Fida Abbott was chosen as one of 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading presented by The Authors Show.
Big thank to Xlibris team. They are so professional doing their job to make author Fida Abbott's dream come true. It was the most remarkable experience! She has found such professional and attentive services (editing, design, layout, creative services for sales brochures, etc). Finally, through hard and detail works, Enthusiasm was released on February 24, 2010.
The other same appreciation is given to YKBK publishing, an Indonesian publisher who has been interested to buy this book right--Enthusiasm. Enthusiasm in Indonesian version entitled Antusiasme finally was published on Valentines Day, February 14, 2012 after almost two years of long work from translating and editing. The result is AMAZING!!! We can read from its blog that has many participants from the readers, including Indonesian authors who have read this book. Who are they? You should visit Antusiasme blog and read the interviews. More authors are coming soon! Enjoy reading their experiences to be an author and learning from their knowledge.
