Go tell Dallas : Portuguese translation of 'Dead Until Dark' is excellent

Our wonderful friend, Telma from Portugal (who you met if you listened to the True Blood/ Sookie international show a few weeks back) promised to give us a review of the translation of the book Dead until Dark into Portuguese as soon as it became available. It has come out and Telma writes and she send along the note she received from Charlaine , who always seems to be interested in hearing about foreign language translations of her books.

Hi Dallas,
As promised I'm sending my review of "Dead until Dark" Portuguese's version, that was released on April 9th. I loved it! The translation was good, meaning it was true to the original as well making sense in Portuguese. Some "southern" expressions were lost, of course, but the humour survived. I actually left a message on the CH boards and here is what she answered:
Hello Charlaine,
First of all thank you for your fertile imagination and congratulations for your success.
I came here to tell you that the first edition of "Dead until Dark" was released here in Portugal last Thursday, and I'm so happy about it!
Was worried that some would get lost in translation (and it did) but your sense of humor came across the language barrier and it's really fun to read.

Some words are just impossible to find in Portuguese (for example, being glamored, redneck) and other sound horrible when translated (fangbanger).
But the hole spirit and feel are there and that's what really matters.
Can't wait for the next 8 books!! Big kisses from across the Atlantic, Telma, Portugal
Telma, thanks for letting me hear about the Portuguese translation. Some of my other foreign readers are not so happy with the translations they read.
I guess comparing to other countries I'm lucky! Now I'm hopping that the book becomes a good seller so I can see all the other books published very soon.



True Blood Dallas Blogtalk radio: “It’s a man’s world but it would be nothin’ without Sookie Stackhouse “ 4/27

Dallas talks to men *gasp*. We talk to all men tomorrow night about what they like about the Sookie Stackhouse books and the True Blood TV series.

Is it different from what female fans like ? Let's find out ..

Some of these guys you might know from twitter, some are bloggers, others are fans of my blog, some are posters to True Blood boards but all of them are truly Sookie fans- we also will have a very special musical guest.

Monday April 27th
9:00 pm cst

I am MOST fascinated to see what it’s like to be a male fan of the books and the TV show and what men like about the story and characters that may or may not be different from what female fans are drawn to.

The show is up now here

We pay a little homage to the Godfather of Soul with the episode title but these guys are serious fans and we will find out why ....
