*** From The Author of Girl, Taken - A True Story of Abduction, Captivity and Survival, A Literary Award Winner ***
Envisioned as a short guide for writers but grown into a full-size novel in the process of writing, “From Zero to Self-Published hero” is another true story from the award-winning author of “Girl, Taken”. Revelations of one self-published author—who went through all the obstacles a new writer can only imagine—will immerse you in deep waters of a creative “book birth process”. An immigrant with English as a second language, lacking connections, budget and experience, but with passion for writing and endless willingness to achieve her goals, Elena fearlessly faced challenges and frustrations on the path to her own success.
Through her emotional narrative, you will live the life of a brand-new author and discover how vulnerable and fragile you can feel under the pressure of writer’s block or rejections.
Besides the story of an empowering journey, you will learn behind-the-scenes steps of the book writing process and perhaps will even be inspired enough to turn your own life story into a book.
If you happen to be an author or always wanted to be one, you will definitely find the complete step-by-step guide that is included in this book (Chapter 11) useful.
