Hello, Mexico!


A couple of days ago, I found out that The Eternal Ones is VERY popular in Mexico. I love it when one of my books receives a warm welcome in another country, but Mexico happens to be one of my favorite places on earth. (Not to mention the country where I saw THE MOST AMAZING THING EVER.) So this time, I'm absolutely thrilled.

Maybe the book's popularity has something to do with the awesome Spanish title . . . Eternos. Who wouldn't want to read a book called Eternos? Or maybe it has something to do with the mysterious videos and newspaper ads that have popped up around the country . . .




Whatever the case, I'm ecstatic. And I hope Eterno's Mexican readers stop by Bank St. Irregular to say hello! And all of you Spanish speakers out there should definitely pay a visit to the Eternos Facebook page. I'm going to be giving away signed copies of the book soon!

I love how the cover artist/designer made a corazon (heart) out of the Ouroboros.

That's really cool! I saw that cover on goodreads.com a couple of weeks ago and thought it looked pretty cool.
And I'm glad to hear that it's doing well all over the world- it's such a good book. I know I've been telling all of my friends about it in Australia (and for now in America as well).
And do you know what the ad on the bottom says? I can't make most of it out.

I read your interview on the blog The itzel library and loved it! I am very interested in reading eternal sounds amazing and intriguing. And hopefully soon be able to delight us with some of the Maya and Aztec civilizacions, as a Mexican would be delighted!

Pablo Molina said...

I'm also here thanks to the itzel library, i got the chance to read your book last week and i loved it! actually I have a giveaway in my blog giving "eternos", and many people from other countries are waiting to read it! I can't believe that Mexico got this book before Spain, usually they wait to see the response in Spain, they are taking a big chance with this book, and they are getting a good responce!!
can't wait to read the second book ^^

Hi! I'm a 15 year old girl from Mexico and you are completely right , The Eternal Ones is really popular over here , I just bought it last Friday because I DID like the name hah (it sounded promising :D ) and the cover is amazing too , the whole design is beautiful.I loved it , I read (more like devoured) the book in 2 days , it's an amazing and unique story that really opens your mind and I must say that it became one of my favorite books , I'm looking forward for the next one .

Congratulations for this wonderful book , you might just have helped me to finally decide that I want to be a writer :)

Ronyka7 said...

Thanks for living my country. I am impatient to read the book I have hear a lot of good reviews. I have a question, is there a sequel to ETERNOS?

Alice the Elf said...

at ronyka7,
Kirsten has written a sequel to the eternal ones, i know it is due to be released this summer in the U.S. and I'm sorry, but I don't know when it will be released in your area.
though i might use a translator for fun.:)
Do you think there's anyone you ever meet again in spite of and against all?
Are you sure that someone in this world is waiting for you?
Have you felt that you live in the wrong place and time?

You are one of us.
