"Redo of Healer (Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi: Sokushi Mahō to Skill Copy no Chōetsu Heal)" light novel series creator Rui Tsukiyo has posted on his Twitter account on Sunday an update regarding the previously planned English version release of his novel series.
In his Twitter post, Tsukiyo stated that they are receiving multiple inquiries in regard to the interest of acquiring copies of the English version of the novel by demand. The author admittedly added that the work is still non-existent due to a certain unnamed overseas publisher refused their work. He didn't state any reason of the refusal but one thing is for sure, they are currently facing a challenge of finding an overseas publisher for an global release.

"Redo of Healer" is based on the Japanese fantasy light novel series written by Rui Tsukiyo and illustrated by Shiokonbu. It began serialization online in December 2016 on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō. It was later acquired by Kadokawa Shoten, who have published six volumes since July 2017 under their Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint. A manga adaptation with art by Sōken Haga has been serialized online via Kadokawa Shoten's Young Ace Up website since October 2017 and has been collected in four tankōbon volumes. (via Wiki)
