Mit Den Augen Meiner Schwester

Filed under: Getting Away With It

MIT DEN AUGEN MEINER SCHWESTER is out today in Germany. It’s the German edition of GETTING AWAY WITH IT and the title translates into the wonderful “With The Eyes of My Sister”.

I received author copies today and I think they’re beautiful.

The book is dedicated to my mother, and appropriately enough, today is her birthday! Happy birthday, Mom. I love you and I wish I could be with you to share some cake.

If you are a German speaker and would like a chance to win a copy of this book, you can do one of two things. Either leave a comment below, saying happy birthday to my mother (in German, or indeed any language you wish). Or if you’re on Twitter, you can tweet the following:

MIT DEN AUGEN MEINER SCHWESTER by @julie_cohen published today. “Klug, witzig, überraschend.” German speakers, RT for chance to win a copy!

I have three copies to give away between the blog, Twitter and Facebook and I’ll choose the winners at random.

  2. Yay – a Julie Cohen book! Yay – a book in German! Yay – it’s the one book I don’t yet own!

    I’m trying to improve my German by reading, so I’m definitely sticking my hand up for this. Thanks, Julie!


  3. Love the cover Julie!


  4. Herzlichen Glueckwunsch zum Geburtstag, Julies Mama!
    Happy Birthday, Julies Mum!

    I have already read the English version, so you don’t need to consider me for the book.



  5. Happy Birthday Jennifier! Enjoy many happy returns of the day! (no book necessary!)


  6. Ich wünsch dir alles Gute zum Geburtstag und hoffe du hast einen wunderschönen Tag!
    (I wish you a happy birthday and hope you have a wonderful day!)



  7. *to Julie’s Mum*:
    HERZLICHEN GLÜCKWUNSCH!Ich hoffe, Sie hatte heute einen besoders schönen Tag- mit lieben Menschen, viel Spaß, Sonnenschein (?), Geschenken-und *Torte*!
    (…hope you’ve had a particularly nice day-incl. lovely people around you, fun, sunshine (well,..:-), presents –and *CAKE*!!:-)

    Thanks- and have a fab evening!!xx



  8. …oh my g***: mistakes, mistakes!! (in the “German version”, to make matters worse!!:-) I’d like to correct myself: it has to read : “Ich hoffe, Sie hatteN heute einen ganz besoNders schönen Tag…” I feel truly ashamed, and assume I’m no longer “in for the draw”?!!:-))

    • Karina, as my knowledge of German is very close to zero, whatever you put looks good to me! It’s the sentiments that count anyway. Thank you and you are certainly in the draw! 🙂


  9. Danke alles!


  10. Happy Birthday Jennifer! The cover is beautiful! I can’t read or write any German so I’ll be the audience for the drawing.


  11. Herzlichen Glückwunsch … nachträglich! (I.e. a belated happy birthday to your mom!)

    I would love a german copy of your book – is it too late to be in the running?


  12. Not at all…I’ll choose winners next week.
