Dissuasão – Aversion in Portuguese

It’s that time again! Thanks to the wonderful world of Babelcube, the (Brazilian) Portuguese version of Aversion, “Dissuasão”, is now available to purchase at all major online retail stores.

The process began with Nathalia Carvalho’s 2016 translation of Broken Ties, Laços Rompidos, where she aptly coined the word Dissuasão for Aversion (since Aversão didn’t quite feel right), and then translated the first chapter, paving the way for Bárbara Bressan to continue with the series. I am so pleased Bárbara was able to work on this story because she showed so mush resilience and dedication even when we faced a number of setbacks. I truly look forward to working with her again! I also can’t thank Jose Serranito enough for taking out time to read through both books and making corrections at the end stages. His help has been brilliant and his generosity will never be forgotten. And finally, a huge thanks to Tom Jay for providing the updated cover for this version, once again.

So what are you waiting for? Time to click away and spread the word. Thanks again everyone. Next stop, more from the series in Spanish!

Para a primeira vez de Gemma Green, as coisas deveriam ter sido óbvias. Encontre seu alvo, mantenha contato visual e empurre um pensamento para sua mente para salvá-lo de um desastre no futuro – Dissuasão completa. Um processo bastante simples dado que o alvo não teria lembrança nenhuma da experiência. Mas Russ Tanner parecia não querer esquecer. Na verdade, quanto mais ela tentava evitá-lo, mais ele se empenhava em tentar conhecê-la. Gemma sabe que tem um problema, mas estaria ela encarando os efeitos colaterais de uma Dissuasão mal feita ou o campeão de tênis da escola tinha realmente se apaixonado por ela?

And…it’s out! Keepers – Book Three of The Mentalist Series

keepers-cover

I won’t say much in this post as I have been going on about this for months but, KEEPERS is finally out! I’m so grateful to everyone who has helped throughout this process – Okey, Neso, Dumebi, Pi-lin, Chizoba, Cherese, Farah and Donna – you guys are absolute rock stars! If Oscars/BAFTAs (insert award ceremony as you feel appropriate) were being given out right now, y’all would be on the stage with me, glowing but trying not to gloat too much, heehee. Mario, Frances and Nnenna, thanks for commenting on the cover and listening to me worry endlessly about the right level of blue to include for the mist! Mum, Dad, Chi, Ekechi and Dana your emotional support has literally been lifesaving. I love you all and really hope all your faith in my work will not be in vain. I’ll shut up now.

Keepers (Mentalist Series #3) Cover Reveal and Release Date

It’s taken much longer than I thought to get here (yes, its been two and a half years since the release of Broken Ties – what!!??!!), but it’s finally done! Sort of…last few edits are still happening but methinks it’s safe to finally announce a release date for the third (and final) book in the Mentalist Series! If you’re a little confused as there are already three released books, Broken Ties is the series prequel so it’s technically book 0.5. But I digress! My Facebook and Twitter followers were treated to a peek of the cover of Keepers on Thursday Continue reading

Author Interview on German Blog – Lora Liest

It feels like forever since I last participated in an author interview, so when I was asked to do so by German blogger Loralee of Lora Liest, I was pretty excited to put on my thinking-hat once again. Here are links to the post in German and also in English.

Aversión – Español and Broken Ties in German

Since I caught the translation bug, you all know that 2016 has been primarily filled with posts about this new venture in the Mentalist Series. Well…drum roll, again…I have two more to share. Next on the scenes is the Spanish translation of Aversion! Like all the others, it is available both digitally and in paperback across a multitude of websites. Please spread the word to any Spanish readers you might know. The translation was carried out by the brilliant team of Eva María Medina Cabanelas  and María de los Remedios Rubio Fernández. Thank you ladies for  doing such a great job.

Por primera vez para Gemma Green, las cosas deberían haber sido sencillas. Encontrar a tu sujeto, sostenerle la mirada y meterle un pensamiento en la cabeza para salvarlo de un futuro desastre: aversión completa. Un proceso bastante simple, dado que el sujeto no va a tener ningún recuerdo de la experiencia. Pero Russ Tanner no parece querer olvidar. De hecho, cuanto más trata ella de evitarlo, más presiona él para llegar a conocerla. Gemma sabe que tiene un problema, pero ¿se está enfrentando a los efectos secundarios de una aversión fallida o el campeón de tenis del instituto se ha realmente enamorado de ella?

 

Also released in May (has it really been three months?) was the German translation of Broken Ties, which ties in neatly with the first book in the series, Die Gedankenwenderin. Eva Markert and Christina Löw, I can’t thank you enough for the amazing work you did on this story.

Broken Ties  - GERMAN

Amazon iBookstore BarnesandNoble Kobo Scribd Tolino

Nichts war außergewöhnlich an jener Nacht, in der alles anders wurde. Es gab keine Lichter, die am Himmel aufleuchteten, kein verzehrendes Feuer in meinem Leib, kein wie auch immer geartetes Anzeichen für die Veränderung, die bevorstand. Nora Brice stellte merkwürdige Dinge mit mir an. Merkwürdige und schreckliche Dinge …

Paul Colt hat ein Problem, und es ist keins, mit dem die meisten Jungen im Teenageralter zu kämpfen haben. Ja, es gibt ein Mädchen, für das er – sollte sich jemals die Gelegenheit ergeben – Dummheiten begehen wird, da ist er sich ziemlich sicher. Aber er darf sich nicht darum bemühen, ihr Herz zu gewinnen, und auch nicht das Herz irgendeines anderen Mädchens. Das hat er davon, dass er ein Gedankenwender ist. Er ist gezwungen, sich in die Fortpflanzungslinie der Gemeinschaft einzufügen. Er weiß, einige Regeln kann man getrost vernachlässigen, andere dürften niemals gebrochen werden. Und wie lautet die wichtigste all dieser Regeln?

Verliebe dich nicht.

Niemals.

Dies ist die Geschichte, wie Paul diese Regel bricht.

Aversion in German is finally here – Die Gedankenwenderin (Mentalisten-Serie, #1)

Roughly seventeen months after my initially post about the German translation of Aversion (I promise, I wasn’t counting the days), I am so pleased to finally announce it’s here! Well, nearly here…more like 11th December, but it can be purchased on pre-order now from a multitude of ebook sites (Amazon, iBooks, ebooks.de, Smashwords). The list of available outlets is still growing and I will post these when they become available.

Entwurf_11

Für Gemma Green hätte das erste Mal ein Kinderspiel sein sollen: Finde deine Zielperson, blicke ihnen tief in die Augen und pushe einen Gedanken in ihren Kopf, um sie vor zukünftigen Katastrophen zu bewahren – Gedankenwendung vollbracht! Ein ziemlich einfacher Prozess, wenn man bedenkt, dass die Zielperson später keine Erinnerung an die Erfahrung haben sollte. Aber Russel Tanner scheint nicht vergessen zu wollen. Im Gegenteil, je mehr sie ihm aus dem Weg geht, desto mehr drängt er darauf sie näher kennenzulernen. Gemma weiß, dass sie in Schwierigkeiten ist, aber hat sie es mit den Nebenwirkungen einer schiefgegangenen Gedankenwendung zu tun oder hat sich der Tennis-Champion der Schule wirklich in sie verliebt?

 

First of all, I would like to thank the amazing Jana Koebel who offered to take this task on in the first place (what do I know about translations?!) and who spent a crazy amount of time working on turning my gabbled English into fluent German. She also did a ton of other work like getting the .epub and .mobi files set up correctly and finding a cover designer, including translating all my annoying micromanaging Continue reading
