Translating my book, journey

Yes, the moment has come.
I will start translating my book.
Wish me luck. 

I have been writing in italian for my whole life and my first novel ,The last Beat came out in italian but now, since I think that it's a great story I really wish I can reach more people, and just by translating it I'll be able to do it.
I am really ecxited to start this journey even if I know it's going to be so long and difficult.
I have translated before but oh my God, that was hard.
I will try and update here everything that I do.


This is how the italian cover is, I might keep the same one for the translated version, I'll definitely change the trim size because I know that American and English people do care about the size of the book while Italians don't. 
I can't wait to know what more people think about my story and I can't wait to start this journey, this is the first novel I've ever written and I was 17 when I started and finished this, I am so proud of it and I am really happy to try and translate it to make it reach even more people. 
I hope you'll be interested in following me trough this journey, it's going to be me growing and becoming a better author and translator.

Aggiornamenti 2019

Ciao a tutti, come state? E' da un po' che non scrivo sul blog ed il motivo è che mi sono voluta prendere una pausa per via della scuola, della stanchezza e anche per via del fatto che non ho per niente letto in questo periodo, non ero proprio nel mood, semplicemente non mi voglio forzare a scrivere, il blog per me è una passione e non un lavoro, se non me la sento di pubblicare un articolo non lo faccio, non voglio forzarmi. Comunque, ho alcuni aggiornamenti su cui ho potuto meditare in questo periodo di assenza. Innanzitutto ho pensato ad alcune serie che possono uscire. La prima, quella a cui tengo di più è la serie sulla scrittura che sarà pubblicata ogni lunedì, con questa serie vi informerò di come procede il mio processo di scrittura ed editing di entrambi i miei libri che penso di pubblicare fra poco, ho deciso di autopubblicarmi per una serie di motivi che vi spiegherò in un apposito articolo che uscirà in uno dei lunedì dedicati alla scrittura, la serie si chiamerà …

This is your time to shine - for all the authors that need to market their novel - FREE

In Italy the government gives every person who turns 18 a bonus of 500€ to spend on book. Since I want to improve my English and to help people I have thought about buying self published authors and traditional published novels but of new writers to help them be recognized and promote their work if it is good.  All you need to do is write to me an email at readtosurvive.blog@gmail.com telling me about your book, what is the story and all you want and follow me on Twitter or/and Instagram (3.1k followers) I will select 5 books a month to buy and review, if your book is too good to be true it will be suggested to my blogger friends and it will get a permanent spot under all my articles with a direct link to buy it.  At the beginning of the month I will announce on the blog who the winners are and I will announce when to expect the review.
(Obviously understand that some months I can buy 2 books instead of 5 because sometimes the bonus doesn't work and sometimes I just don't have…

N26, Your free bank account.

Hi guys,
thanks for having clicked on my post today.  I wanted to share something with you.  First of all I am sorry that I am not posting a lot lately but school is killing me and now that I am in easter break I obviously got sick, anyways, today I am here with a different type of article because we are talking about a free bank account.  I have been using N26 for a year now and I just love it.  N26 is a German bank and I think they work just in the European Union, so if you're outside of the EU probably you can't order it but they are expanding and they will be soon delivered in other countries outside of the EU. 
By the way, this article is not sponsored, the bank doesn't even know that I exist, I was thinking about making different articles, and this one popped up in my mind.  Anyways, I have the free version of N26 the transparent one, I'll leave you the site so you can check it because I don't feel comfortable in putting my card here: N26 site, this card is …
