Starting today, I'll be looking forward to start my self-employment on November 1, and I want to share and celebrate with you guys. A part of my new job is hosting blog tours via Rogue Book Tours, but I don't only want to help English authors promote their books. More importantly, I want to give German authors a way to get a head start in the English blogging community with the translations of their works.

Cornelia Funke is a German author who made a break in the US, where she now lives with her family, and thus got translated into over 30 languages and published in many countries. And I want to help other German authors to achieve the same.


Ever since Jacob Reckless was a child, he has been escaping to a hidden world through a portal in his father's abandoned study. Over the years, he has made a name for himself as a finder of enchanted items and buried secrets. He's also made many enemies and allies--most important, Fox, a beautiful shape-shifting vixen whom Jacob cares for more than he lets on.
But life in this other world is about to change. Tragedy strikes when Jacob's younger brother, Will, follows him through the portal. Brutally attacked, Will is infected with a curse that is quickly transforming him into a Goyl--a ruthless killing machine, with skin made of stone.
Jacob is prepared to fight to save his brother, but in a land built on trickery and lies, Jacob will need all the wit, courage, and reckless spirit he can summon to reverse the dark spell--before it's too late.

  1. Your new job sounds fantastic, and i really admire what you are doing for authors.
    I simply loved Cornilia Funke's "Inkheart" story, which is so magical and wonderful ~ it really made me love books & reading even more! So thank you for holding such a fantastic book giveaway x

  2. Wow, much respect for going self-employed! I love the idea of bringing German speaking authors to a larger audience. The difference between the amount of books being translated to German vs. German books being translated to English is extreme!
    What else are doing apart from Book Rogue Tours? (since you said it's only a part of hte job)
    Thanks for the giveaway 🙂 I've got Tintenherz on my shelf but haven't gotten to it yet...

    1. Thanks for showing such interest! I really hope I can make a little of a difference. =)
      Well, I'm actually a translator, so hopefully one day my name will be printed on the inside of a book. 😉
