  1. I love hearing about people who were able to succeed on their own. I have some friends who self publish their books and would be so excited if they ever hit it big like this.

    What do you think of the books so far?

    1. The first one was fresh and original, the second was a shocking disappointment to most fans as he literally betrayed the character that made him famous, and I hear the third one is the worst, sadly, I'm finishing the translation of the second one right now. The problem with self published writers is that their books are sloppy and filled with mistakes usually.

    2. Oooh, that sounds disappointing then. I may have to skip out on this one if he's betrayed his characters. I hate it when that happens.

      I do agree that there are mistakes in a lot of self published books, but usually I can overlook them if the story is good. I still find them in professionally edited books as well, so I guess nobody is perfect.

    3. I went crazy and mad with his mistakes while translating, he changes the name of the same character sometimes three times in the novel and does not even notice it, but I have to in order to avoid it in our version.

    4. Now that really ticks me off when they mess up the characters. I find that happens often in the freebie titles that are offered on Amazon. I am all for self-publishing, but at least have someone else read your story first before sending it out for the world to read. Even your next door neighbor could catch a few mistakes with a quick read through! It's good that you were paying attention and caught his errors so your versions read better than ours.

    5. The problem is that most of them use family or friends for beta readers, and that is a big big no no. You pick the most evil and straightforward of people you know for a beta reader, beta reading should be cruel, not sycophantic!

  2. How exciting that you’re translating this book! Even if the sequels are disappointing like you said above, you may take pride in watching the series knowing you had your part to play in the story.

    1. It is probably the longest it has ever taken me to translate a saga, I think it will be about eight months in the end for all three.
