Tim’s books published in Korea
Sunday, 23rd August, 2009
Tim has been particularly successful in Korea over the last two years where River Boy was the Number 1 Bestseller in the country and remained in the bestseller lists for over six months. River Boy was followed by a Korean edition of Starseeker. In July 2008 Tim visited the country to take part in the launch there of Shadows. His visit included a press conference, interviews, book signings and a high-profile keynote address in Seoul. All the major Korean newspapers covered the visit and Tim was deeply touched by the warmth of the Korean people and their enthusiasm for his work. Tim’s first novel, Midget, has also now appeared in a Korean edition. Tim’s Korean publishers, Dasan Books, will be bringing out Frozen Fire later in 2009.
