One of our favorite reads of 2018 has been released in Spanish. Which means even more people get to read Gwendolyn Kiste’s beautiful words.
So. Big announcement! The amazing @dilatandomentes will be releasing the Spanish version of THE RUST MAIDENS in 2020! It will be my fiction's first ever translation, and I couldn't be more excited for this! 😊 pic.twitter.com/zAAj5hOFIK
