Payback (Revenge is Fun Book 3) - Review by Martha A. Cheves

 

"I was pretty far away, but it looked like she was going toward her car when - and I swear this is what I saw - that idiot just speeded up and smacked right into her.  Saw the body fly up in the air even though I was a ways away.  Whoever it was kept driving like the wind.  Outta sight in a flash."... Kate was standing beside us.  She whispered, "I'm afraid that's the woman I was supposed to meet.  She left before I got there.  She called me.  I'll tell you what happened, but I think we still have to cover ourselves.  Follow my lead in case anyone is watching us."

 

Meet Cameron Harsen, Kimberly Martin and Kate Steele.  They were all part of a marketing arm of the Federal Association of Corrections Reform (FACR).  All three made a fortune when they uncovered a massive embezzlement ripoff.  Kim stayed with FACR and became the Director of Marketing and married the US Attorney General.  Cameron started her own advertising company.  And Kate formed a website she called FraudBusters, plus she has a movie in the works that will show the world how these three made it to where they are today.

 

This book is full of mystery, suspense, plus as always with this author, humor.  These three women seem to just fall into trouble, even without looking for it.  But when someone Cameron used to work with is murdered and the US Government has an informant within their wiretapping headquarters, the girls take action and bring the bad guys, and gals, to justice.  I loved the story, as much as the way it's written.  This book is a stand alone but for the fun of it, go back and read the first two books in the series, Getting Even and Ripoff, to bring these characters into their true lights.

New Pulp publisher, Pro Se Productions has announced the release of my novel, Nightveil: Crisis at the Crossroads of Infinity. This is definitely a dream come true project for me. I have loved the character of Nightveil since I first read her adventures in ACComics back in the late 1980's in high school (yeah. I 'm old). I remember saying that I wanted to write this character one day. Well, it took a little over 30 years, but it finally happened and I'm thrilled.

 

Huge thanks to Tommy Hancock and Pro Se Productions for helping make this dream a reality. I’d also like to thank Bill Black and AC Comics for allowing me to play with their amazing characters in this novel. I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.

OK, so you’ve completed (or are completing) your manuscript. Maybe it’s already (on the way to becoming) a published book. Even though your blood, sweat, and tears are on the pages–visible only to you–you now realize that this is, in fact, only the end of the beginning and far, far from the beginning of the end of your book publishing journey.

Leave aside for the moment the important questions and tasks related to book marketing, social media, and public relations. Let’s focus on another topic which may prove equally important: translation. My company, Tomedes, has been translating books for more than a decade. Yet many authors, surprisingly, don’t even think of having their book translated.

Why, after all, limit your book to the language in which it was written? You can vastly expand your readership by creating multiple language editions.  Think about all the readers who don’t speak your mother tongue. Why deny them the pleasure of your brilliant thoughts and clever content?

Look Before You Leap

But just a second. It was hard enough, and costly enough, just to complete a book in one language. Won’t it just multiply your headaches, and your expenses, to undertake each additional language?

It doesn’t need to be so painful, or expensive, if you plan carefully.

A good place to start, not surprisingly, is reading. There are some excellent, authoritative resources for book authors and translators. These include theTranslation Journal and Kindlepreneur (which focuses on ebooks).

But let’s assume you’ve done your homework and are ready to take a deep dive into the work itself. What are the best options out there for authors who want to get their works translated, quickly and efficiently, at a reasonable cost? Let’s look at the possible ways to get the job done cost-effectively, without sacrificing quality and accuracy. We consider a trio of approaches.

Do It Yourself

What was inconceivable just a few years ago is not firmly within the realm of the possible. Do It Yourself translation is within your grasp – if you have the courage, the time, and the nerves to undertake it.  The DIY option is, not surprisingly by far the cheapest option – but the cost in your personal effort and time commitment is greatest. Let’s weigh the pros and cons.

Pros Of DIY Translation

There are many languages and translation tools out there, just waiting for you.  Some are free. Others have a nominal cost. Most of us are familiar with Google Translate but this is just the gorilla in the machine translation market. There are dozens, maybe hundreds, of alternatives.  Some focus on a handful of translation pairs. For sure, as you will immediately discover, some are (much) better than others.

Thinking Of Google Translate? Think Twice

For the sake of simplicity, let’s say you choose to use Google Translate. Not a bad choice: one of the biggest companies in the word – Alphabet – has poured millions of dollars/Euros/pounds into making this a truly sophisticated tool for professionals. Anyone who used Translate in its early days will be delighted to discover the algorithm and database improvements that now grace the current product.

Go to translate.google.com then copy and paste your brilliant first chapter into the left-column box. Then select your target language. As if by magic, voila, your chapter is now rendered into a whole new tongue. Ready to pop the cork on that expensive bottle of champagne? Maybe wait a minute.

If the target language is a second or third language to you, then you’re ahead of the game. You may be already able to spot the mistakes or awkward expression in your freshly baked translation. Maybe you know enough to fix them yourself. Maybe not. Google (and most other machine translation providers) helps you out by presenting a list of alternative word choices for the ones it initially selected. If you know a little about your target language, you may be able to use these lists to your advantage to tweak and smooth the translation into something less jarring to a mother-tongue reader of the target language.

Cons Of DIY Translation

But let’s assume that you really have no competence in the target language. What then? You are left with three alternatives: friends, freelancers, and professional translation agencies.

Let’s dispense with the first option swiftly. Friends don’t ask friends to translate their writing. It’s more likely than not a recipe for the end of the friendship. Why?  Because translation usually does not fall into the category of a favor that friends do for each other.  True, if you have given up your kidney to your foreign-language friend, or they are hopelessly in love with you, they may feel obliged, or impassioned enough, to give your translation the time and dedication that it so richly deserves.  Otherwise, trust me, you are risking your friendship and probably not doing any great favors to your content.  Friends, even those competent or even expert in a foreign language, are not professional translators. They lack the experience, the tools, and the tricks, to get the job done. So don’t expect them to!

The Freelance Option

If you are a professional writer, chances are that you may have already encountered freelance marketplaces like freelance.com, fiverr.com or upwork.com. Each day there are hundreds if not thousands of job offers on these marketplace sites, many of them for writing, editing, proofreading, and translation services. The offers come from companies and individuals. Some are for a fixed fee while others let you set your own rate or make an offer.  Freelancers compete to be selected for each of these jobs. The marketplace typically takes a commission of 10% to 20% of the freelancer’s earnings. Many writers supplement their earnings with these kinds of freelance gigs.

What To Look For In A Freelance Translator

In this case, though, we’re talking about crossing over to the client-side of the marketplace and seeking out potential translators for your book. Needless to say, the quality of translators varies drastically and you need to separate those who offer the best value for the money. Basically, you will post a job offer and receive after a day or three a list of candidates, each with a rating score, a profile, and many reviews of their past work.

ONLY seek out those who are mother-tongue speakers of the TARGET language.

That’s the thing that matters.  Read the reviews carefully. Select only those with excellent reviews and successful job completions, ideally with a published translation with explicit credit to the translator.

Contracting The Freelance Translator

Once you find a translator that seems the best value for your money, you will make a contract. Be sure to set milestones, especially in the beginning, to make sure you are happy with the translator’s work. In your contract, make sure you are explicit that you are contracting for human translation, not machine translation. There is a temptation to use software tools like Google Translate (or a similar machine translation) to expedite or check the work. While there is no harm in the translator using those tools as part of the process, a professional translator will not see machine translation as a substitute for “the real thing.”

Audit Your Freelance Translator To Weed Out Fakes

As the politicians say: trust but verify. Run your original through Google Translate and compare it to what your translator turns in to you.  If one seems to resemble the other, check additional passages. If the resemblance seems too close, don’t be shy about bringing this to the translator’s attention or, in extreme cases, canceling the contract then and there. Your book is your pride and joy, and you should get what you expect for a professional translator, no less.

Get A Second Opinion On Your Freelance Translation

Let’s say the process goes well and your translator presents you, proudly, with what he or she considers a final translation draft. Are you done? By no means! At that point, you would be well advised to post another job: editing and proofreading your translator’s work. Again, hire a native mother-tongue speaker of the target language. The editor/proofer will serve as a “second opinion” or “double-check” of the veracity and naturalness of the translation. Some will even add a “third opinion” but that becomes a matter of trust, comfort level, and (of course) budget.

Once you are satisfied that the translation is excellent, you will submit it to the publisher (Lulu or other) in the required format and/or according to the specified template. There still is a final round of review (proofing) before your translated work goes to press, and you should include this as a final milestone in your contract with your editor/proofreader.

Your book is your pride and joy, and you should get what you expect for a professional translator, no less.CLICK TO TWEET

Professional Agencies

If the process described above seems to you a bit daunting – involving more supervision and back-and-forth than you anticipated – fear not. There is an alternative. Find an agency that specializes in literary translation, including (explicitly) book translation. If they have strong references and reviews (including published works in the desired target language), then you can feel confident entrusting to them many of the intermediate steps described in the previous section. Translation agencies usually are also familiar with localization, which involves familiarity with the cultural and social norms of the target audience, which can help you avoid embarrassing mistakes.

Pay A Premium For Professional Translation Services

Sure, you will pay a premium for this professionalism, and for the accompanying management and supervision of the whole process. Translation pricing will vary from language to language, of course, often as a function of the local economy and the laws of supply and demand. As a rule of thumb, a top professional translation agency will cost 30-50% more in translation cost than the combination of a freelancer and an editor/proofreader. But then again, your time is valuable, and you are likely to get a better product by working with an agency with an excellent track record and years of experience under its metaphorical belt.

Look For A Long Guarantee On Translation Work

If you are a skeptical, untrusting sort – and we strongly recommend that you be one! – it’s not a bad idea to hire an independent editor/proofreader who will review the agency’s work at the “galley” stage to find any errors or typos or formatting issues that may have crept into the process. But the good news about working with translation agencies is that some offer a guarantee about the accuracy of their work. Many agencies offer a month while a few, like Tomedes, offer a full year. If you, or your “hired gun” editor/proofer, find errors, they will take responsibility for fixing them. And, if you are smart enough to include this clause in your contract with the agency, they will even reimburse you for at least some of your expenses for hiring an independent editor/proofer.

How To Stage Multiple Translations

There is one additional point to be considered: additional languages. It’s always a good idea to do one translation before undertaking others. You familiarize yourself with the process and you learn from experience. The big advantage of working with a professional translation agency is that the second, third and subsequent translations are likely to be far more efficient. Most agencies support dozens of target languages and have the resources to ensure that the result is flawless. Truth be told, the process of translation is likely to reveal flaws in your original. Once those are corrected, future translations will go more smoothly and usually will involve “economies of scale” that will save you significantly in future translations.

Vengeance on Tyneside - Review by Martha A. Cheves

 

Perhaps she was allowing her over-active mind to take control.  She had done that twice before in recent months and both times it had almost taken her to the point of being murdered.  Maybe this time she should walk away.  But when she heard the cry again, she knew she couldn't do that.  Someone needed help.  Looking around, she realized the sound was coming from the row of rubbish bins lined up by a wall, not too far from where she was standing... having reached the rubbish bins, she took a deep breath before peering behind them.  For a moment, despite having prepared herself for the worst, Agnes was stunned at the sight of a young woman lying there.  Her hands were clutched to her chest, desperately trying to stem the flow of blood streaming from her body and pooling on the concrete ground beneath her.


Agnes Lockwood has just returned from a trip to the coast.  Her plans are to meet with DCI Alan Johnson for a nice quiet evening.  Well, she soon finds out that the nice quiet evening won't be so quiet after all.  She ends up finding herself in the middle of not one murder but 3 plus an attempt.  What do these people have in common?  Can she and the DCI find out and stop them before more occur?

 

This book had me fooled from the beginning.  I had four suspects.  The person I had as my major suspect turned out to be innocent.  That narrowed it down to three.  I was close but still didn't come up with the real killer.  And Author Eileen Thornton didn't disclose the killer until the last few pages.  If you like a good suspense, this is one you don't want to miss. 

 

This book also left with an opening for the next book, which I hope makes it my way very soon.

Murder in Marin County

Murder in Marin County, A Jack Brubaker Novel (You Don't Know Jack / Book 1) by Derek Wade is a murder mystery about a private investigator, Jack Brubaker. If you merge the deductive reasoning ability of a Mike Hammer and the crazy. humous antics of a Martin Riggs, you have private detective Jack Brubaker, who's in his mid-thirties. His detective agency called Brubaker Agency is in Sausalito, California. Add his dog Charley, which is short for Charlene. Brubaker stated: She has long blonde hair and four long legs, and she knows how to use them. Then there is his boat: Suzanne is my boat, the first boat that I have ever owned. She is strong but nimble, stout but graceful. She has a very light helm and easily follows my direction. The reader will be propelled through a maze of harrowing events encompassing murder, danger, a missing woman, a missing husband. The perpetual roller coaster ride of mystery and suspense ends with a satisfying climax.
The variety of characters encountered by Brubaker are memorable, incorporating a well-plotted story. The humor of Jack Brubaker enlightens almost every scene.
I recommend Murder in Marin County for all genre readers. You won't be disappointed. Reviewed by G. L. Didaleusky, author of mystery/suspense novels.

Art by Jeffrey Ray Hayes. Click for larger view.

There is nothing quite as exciting as having a new piece of art hit your inbox. Today, #TheSummerofSnow kicked into high gear for me today with the arrival of the new SNOW POSTER art by the amazingly talented Jeffrey Hayes. I am absolutely blown away by this piece. You can definitely expect to see this as a banner at conventions in 2020 and will no doubt be used in multiple places. I love it! A bug, big, BIG SHOUT OUT to Jeffrey for this amazing piece! Now, I just need to write an epic Snow thriller to fit this image. Ha! Ha!

Says Hayes about the cover, "Was hoping to get this done a bit sooner, but here is the final poster / cover illustration for author Bobby Nash’s “Snow” series. I hope he will get good use out of the art for a possible future book cover or promotion of his series. Have a great weekend. enjoy!"

Penny The Railway Pup - Review by Martha A. Cheves

 

"Until recently there was a gypsy encampment on the waste ground near the railway station.  There was a knock on my door and two little girls were standing there, maybe eight to ten years old, with the older of the two holding a puppy in her arms.  You could tell they were sisters just by looking at them.   They told me they'd been out playing and saw that the gypsies had gone so they went to take a look in the field near the station where they'd camped, in case they'd left anything behind.  From the scruffy state of their clothes, their white socks covered in mud and muck, and their dirty faces, I could tell they'd had a really good time exploring the old gypsy site.  They walked towards the railway station, and on the other side of the fence, they saw something moving a few yards along the tracks.  They soon realized it was a little dog.  They followed the fence and realized that the puppy had a rope round its neck and that the rope was caught up on the track.  They knew that if a train came along the poor little puppy would probably be hit and killed by the engine.  They climbed the fence and ran to the puppy.  It took a few minutes to free it from the track and the elder girl picked her up and reassured her."  This was the rescue of the little puppy that became Penny the Railway Pup.

 

"The whole meaning of the word 'pet' when applied to a dog, speaks to me of a member of the family, one who shares the home and the life of their owner, not a 'thing' to be kept outdoors in all weathers and left to suffer in a freezing kennel or worse during the rages of winter.  Even working dogs, kept as guard dogs for example, need warmth and comfort in the depths of winter, otherwise how can they be expected to fulfill their role of protecting their owner's property?" - Brian L. Porter

 

I have read all four of the Rescue Dog books and can't help but admire Author Brian L. Porter and his family.  The love, affection and care that they provide for those that probably wouldn't make it otherwise shows me how much we forget about what we call 'our animals.'  He is totally correct in reminding us that they aren't just pets, they are members of our own family and should be treated as so.  If you're a dog lover, this is a must read book.  If you aren't a dog lover, read it anyway and maybe you'll become one.

Chapter 32 ad.

Just a head's up! SUICIDE BOMB is an adult suspense/thriller. There's a good deal of murder, death, mayhem, and terror taking place in this story. There will even be some cussing and sex too. Please be aware of that going in. If it were a movie, I suspect it would have an R rating. You've been warned. There will be some adult language.

 

Please, join us and sit back, have fun, and enjoy the carnage and mayhem of SUICIDE BOMB.

 

As always, I appreciate your support. Feedback is also welcome and appreciated.
