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.

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.

Drum roll, please…TADA!

Sentient_cover

As promised, this is the cover for Sentient – Book Two of the Mentalist Series. Like it? I really hope so! It’s supposed to follow on from the theme of Aversion’s cover. Thanks to everyone who got involved in the design process. You know who you are…love you guys to bits!

Now for more book info –

Book Description:
Mastering her Progressive Empath abilities isn’t going as well as Gemma hoped. In fact, months after finding out what she really is, she still has no clue what this truly means. All she can do is wait to see if any new abilities will eventually manifest. Things aren’t going great with Russ either. Unsure of how to handle her Sentient Link with him, she tries to integrate herself in his busy social life but struggles to adjust to her new circumstances.
When she is plagued by recurring nightmares, Gemma realises things are changing and knows she has to do something, fast. The arrival of two sets of strangers in town, both offering the much needed assistance she needs to unearth her powers, escalates the situation even further. Gemma attempts to decipher whose intentions are genuine, but does she have enough time to figure out who has her best interest at heart?
Genre:
YA Paranormal Romance

Expected Release Date:

28th October 2013

And finally, the giveaway. One lucky reader has the chance to win a $20 Amazon Giftcard and three readers will be able to win e-copies of Sentient as well.

Where The Pen Drops – Guest Post on Penelope Reece’s Blog

It’s been a busy week in Kenny’s world. Today, you can read the guest post I wrote (“Where The Pen Drops”) on Penelope Reece’s blog (she’s the author of the YA paranormal novel Phantasma). She’s also written a review of Aversion. Click here for the link.

This Week In Kenny’s World…

aversion paperbackSo much has happened in the last few weeks but nothing gave me as much joy as I felt when I received the proof copy of Aversion’s paperback on Monday. After a few tweaks (and gasps at my formatting oversights) it is now available for purchase via Amazon for all ye technophobes at a very attractive price of $6.99 (£4.52). The e-book is still only $0.99 (£0.77) so if you ever decide to join us screen squinters, you’ve got that option too.

In other related news, I reached the 10,000 words mark of Sentient (Book Two of The Mentalist Series) this week. Really excited about the way the story is going and I can’t wait to share it with my beta readers in a few months time.

Also, the lovely Becky of Barmy Becky Book Blog reviewed The Other Slipper and you can check out what she thought here.

Finally, I’m thinking of starting a new feature on the blog (possibly from next week) but it’s still under consideration so I’ll let you guys know what it’s all about as soon as I’m certain it’s going ahead.

Take care everyone.

“Aversion” Blog Tour Round-Up

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in this tour in some form or another – bloggers, reviewers and readers. Thirteen days went by much quicker than I thought they would and I was slightly shocked to find myself sending out the last post yesterday.  I had a lot of fun reading what people had to say and I hope you all did too. Hopefully people have learnt a little bit more about “Aversion” and its characters and will spread the word about it. Some giveaways are still running so if you want to enter for a chance to win an e-copy of Aversion or The Other Slipper, click away. UK entrants are also eligible to win a paperback copy of The Other Slipper.
