The idea of having my books translated was once too fantastic to consider.
Translations are, in my opinion, such a beautiful act: a literal transformation that takes place solely to ensure more people have access to a specific work. And now, my work is the subject of such a miracle. (You can tell I’m very excited about this because I’m being so weirdly serious.)
Yes; Get a Life, Chloe Brown is now available in German. The title of the German edition is Kissing Chloe Brown (adorable, right?!) and the cover is just as cute.
Due to COVID-related, erm, thingies, Kissing Chloe Brown is only available as an ebook right now – but the paperback edition is coming soon. And I, for one, cannot wait to own a copy of a book written by me and translated into a language I can’t read. As a matter of fact, I might just start learning German.
You can snag your own copy at Ullstein Buchverlage, Amazon, and, erm… possibly some other places, but my lack of German isn’t doing me any favours when it comes to link discovery. Perhaps I’ll return when I have mastered the language (she said, laughably) to offer even more options.
Until then! Happy reading. <3
I think this is so cool, congratulations!!
Wunderbar! You can also order the book at thalia.de and kulturkaufhaus.de. I’ve recently discovered you and your work, Talia, and it’s giving me LIFE! How sexy is it to have men who are self-aware and go to therapy?! So good! Thank you for making your characters diverse! Any chance we’ll see an East Asian male lead at some point??
Talia, your work is extraordinary. I’m so thrilled to hear the book is being translated to German. More and more people need to become aware of fibromyalgia, it’s so so so important. This is a key step to increasing that awareness and the way you do it is amazing.
I wish those who designed the cover would’ve given Chloe more justice. I don’t feel it shows her flawless curves (the drawing of Chloe looks downsized/skinnier), nor her go-to bunned up hair, nor her dress style, and where are her glasses..? T.T And the words “get a life Chloe Brown” went really well with the main message of the book, rather than “kissing Chloe Brown”… like kissing wasn’t even a part of the plan ’till unexpectedly later haha (thanks Red).
All in all, I’m really happy for you and this opportunity. I just wish they could’ve drawn the one-of-a-kind Chloe more accurately. Since the cover design the first thing a reader sees, I feel it’s important the reader visually sees Chloe more as she actually is especially because of the unique way you’ve created her.
Anywho, I’ll be reserving the next book on the Brown sisters asap. I’m excited to see what else is in store! Thank you for sharing your talents with the world, we are forever grateful.
