Publishing in a foreign language
« on: January 10, 2019, 05:54:49 AM »
I am not sure where to post this or if anyone has any advice, but I thought I would put the question out there.

I am an American living in Bulgaria. I write in English and want to get a US agent and publish in the US market (or UK). Ideally. However, I have an editor in Bulgaria who is enthusiastic about translating and publishing one of my manuscripts.

I am wondering how having the book published in Bulgarian would affect my chances of getting a US agent and/or publisher. I assume it would complicate things and harm my chances, but I am unsure. The Bulgarian market is not huge, so I would not have a high sales number, for sure.

Anyone have any experience with publishing manuscripts in various languages? Advice, thoughts, ideas?
