Why Author Is Using Traditional Chinese Symbol of Happiness!

I am delighted to explain why I have included this traditional Chinese symbol in my post.

Last year, after the Frankfort Book Fair, my publisher, John Bond, Senior Vice President of Books and Journals at Slack Inc., told me that a publisher from Taiwan wanted to publish What Color Is Your Brain?® in traditional Chinese. However, John told me it would probably take a year for the publication.

Since, the beginning of November I have noticed a huge increase in visits from Taiwan on my Google Analytics reports. Yesterday, I wrote John and asked him if traditional Chinese version of What Color Is Your Brian? had been published. John replied that he had just heard from the Chinese publisher in Taiwan. The book was published and sample books were on their way.

I am extremely eager to see the cover and design of the book. I hope I will be as pleased, as I am, with the cover and design of A Cor Do Seu Cerebro, which is the Brazilian version of my book that was published by Editora Novo Concieto in 2009.

Now, 10% of the royalties from the sale of 3 What Color Is Your Brain? books and Princess Shayna’s Invisible Visible Gift will be allocated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation!

Now, you know why I posted the traditional Chinese symbol, which represents happiness, joy, gaiety, jolliness, “hurrah”, and pleasure. Those are just a few of the Yellow, Blue, Green, and Orange Brain emotions I am feeling about this Grand News!!!!!!!

    I can see why you’re deliriously happy! I wonder what the Chinese symbol for “tickled pink” looks like?

    Laurie, Thank you for acknowledging my exciting Chinese book opportunity. I hope I can do the same for you very soon! I will have to research and see if there is a Chinese tickles pink symbol. Right now, I am tickled with a brilliant “Brainbow” of Yellow, Blue, Green and Orange!
