In November, 2015–Writer and Humanitarian Philanthropist, Eduardo Selender, True Collaborator and “Think Different Individual,”expressed himself through his Top Ten with Ed Lists.  He created a surprise that will always stay in my memory. He continues to bring smiles to our faces with his Top 10’s–and definitely did when he surprised me with this–on his website:

Author, Sheri Mcinnis wrote a piece on Publishing and Translation Rights for Books in the International Market– May, 2016.  It is a part of her Book-Deal Boot-Camp Series. I am encouraging her to publish each blog post as a complete Series for her next book (after Hunters Moon). Here is how she decided to integrate information about my Spanish Interpreting/Translating into her piece in order to share & collaborate. Mil Gracias, S~ (¡sin palabras, de pura verdad!)

…This part of her piece was a total & sweet surprise!

Because foreign publishers know their markets much better than anyone else. Plus the further I get into the world of independent publishing, the more respect I have for all the work that goes into a traditionally published book too. It’s not an easy process!

While we’re on the topic of translation rights, I want to introduce you to the wonderful Jennifer C. Lopez!

Jen was one of my very first Twitter friends and she’s been one of my favorite tweeps ever since! She’s a great teacher, author, designer, translator, mom – and more!

The Lovely Jennifer C. Lopez @thejennieration
Because Jen is a professional translator, I wanted to consult her about one of the characters in HUNTER’S MOON: a powerful Latina witch named Delia.

Delia had a few Spanish phrases in the book and I wanted to make sure I got them right, so I sent the English versions to Jen – and she did an incredible job translating them into Spanish – in about ten minutes flat!

Jen has also been doing something called Mini-Bitty Spanish Lessons on her site.

In her last post, she used Delia as inspiration for her third lesson. It’s absolutely brilliant how she’s able to explain grammar – in Spanish – so succinctly and clearly! Because even English grammar lessons can throw me for a loop! 😉

I’m also so flattered by all the wonderful things she had to say about me in the post. She’s an absolute doll as a person, a brilliant woman, an avid reader – and an author herself.

Jen teamed up with M Lemont to co-write a new book. M LeMont is the bestselling author of How to Gain 100,000 Twitter Followers – a book I’m reading and that I’d recommend to anyone learning the Twitter ropes – even if you don’t want 100,000 followers (which LeMont won’t believe anyway!).

M LeMont’s bestseller @mistersalesman
As I said, Jen and M LeMont have Co-written a new book due out soon – it’s called:

“WRITE LIKE YOU’RE ALREADY FAMOUS”

Isn’t that a great title? Something we should all be telling ourselves to get past the inevitable doubts. Can’t wait to read it!

Incidentally, getting back to foreign translation rights, you bet that I’ll be having HUNTER’S MOON translated into Spanish by Jen.

I might not be able to do it for the launch, but it’s a definite plan for the future.

The Spanish-speaking market is a huge, global one.

Not to mention the fact that almost 40 million people in the U.S. speak Spanish at home.

This market has a voracious appetite for books and entertainment, so don’t overlook potential readers there!

We both think “Outside The Box”- Big Time! in our own unique ways.

My Coauthor wrote the following words about our Collaborative Writing Process in May, 2016:

“Jen slowly showed me somethings I didn’t realize myself:”

🔸Collaborating with the right people encourages personal growth, allows you to dispose of ego & pride- so you can get on with making a difference.

🔸Both individuals think & work selflessly, compromising for the sake of the project.

🔸Working with Jen was truly a joy.  It was like food to feed my soul.

🔸Our collaborations open up a floodgate of ideas. That’s what being in harmony with your writing partner creates.

🔸Jen “es como el azúcar a mi alma.” (sugar to my soul)

Mini-Bitty Spanish Lesson #3 🇪🇸

Mini-Bitty Spanish Lesson #3 🇪🇸

For Mini-bitty Spanish Lesson #3 TheJennieration would like to Introduce:

Author: Sheri Mcinnis💕 Her 3rd novel débuts soon: Hunter’s Moon!

Get excited for this spicy story about a group of fun, feisty and EMPOWERED females who definitely think differently.  Learn about the fabulous main character and what Spanish has to do with her!  The women in Hunters Moon live in New York City. Their lives are pretty intense…and have been for thousands of years. Yes These women are special!

Why?

Because: They’re witches!

HUNTER'S MOON EBOOK COVER COMPLETE

⬆️ One of these witches, as you might notice…takes center stage with the attentions & affections of many.  She is the subject for our Mini Bitty Spanish Lesson #3. 💋💄

Remember~I told you it would “just get more fun!”

🍎In this lesson we’ll take a couple of the Interrogativas (“question words”) we used in our 1st Mini-Bitty lesson and practice them in our questions about this Spicy Diva with 12 new Palabras Descriptivas (Adjectives) used in similar style to those in our 2nd lesson.

🍎The Palabras Descriptivas in this “Mini Bitty” accurately describe who you are about to meet AND are 12 more examples of cognates. Remember cognates: words derived of same origins. So, they are fun & easy to remember!

🍎Mini Bitty Lesson #3 is the TRIFECTA~ with an introduction to not only the hottest witch in upscale New York, but the Spanish VERBO (verb) used to help us learn about her!

🍎Now, we all know that not every verb expresses an action. In fact, some of the most IMPORTANT VERBS (verbos importantes) act as “CONNECTORS;” linking our thoughts and sentences together. This is true in both English and Spanish!

🇪🇸 Mini Bitty Lesson #3 is on The verb: TO BE! 

✔️You know the verb: I am, You are, He is, We are, They are!

Well Today WE ARE FINDING OUT WHO a special 💋SHE: IS!

➡️ ¿Quíen ES la bruja principal en el libro: Hunter’s Moon🌚?

Who IS the primary witch in the book: Hunter’s Moon?

➡️ La bruja principal Es: Delia Verela.💗

The primary witch IS: Delia Verela.

(note: placement of the palabra descriptiva en Español follows the noun it describes!)

➡️ ¿Cómo ES Delia Verela?

What is she like?   (i.e.: HOW IS she?- as witches go)

(example of: how words can’t always be translated directly from one language to another)

➡️ ¡Delia, la bruja de Nueva York ES muy poderosa! 🔥

Delia, the witch of New York IS very powerful!

➡️¡Delia ES muy bonita, glamourosa y Latina también! 👠

Delia IS very beautiful, glamorous and Latina as well!

➡️¡Delia ES una mujer luchadora y también una bruja rica! 💰

Delia IS a feisty woman and also a rich witch!

(note: continued placement of the palabras descriptivas in Español following the noun they describe!)

➡️ ¡Delia ES una amiga buena y fiél a su ‘familia de brujas’! 💞

Delia IS a good and loyal friend to her family of witches!

(notice how: the feminine ending “a” follows in agreement across the sentence)

➡️ ¡Ella ES magnífica, misteriosa y empoderada!  💄💔💥

She IS magnificent and mysterious and empowered!

¡ES TODO! That’s our Mini-Bitty Spanish Lesson #3  Now WHO IS Sheri Mcinnis?

IMG_0637
Sheri is a beautiful, loyal and fun-loving human being! She is a passionate writer (escritora apasionada) and a tremendously dedicated author! I feel privileged to have gotten to know her over this past year and a half–and to witness her commitment and enthusiasm for the writing process.

Sheri’s love of her characters and desire to bring them to life on the page brought about Delia’s Spicy Latina Spanish-speaking side! Yes, you’ll hear SPANISH pop out of Delia’s mouth during some of her most intense moments throughout the book!
