My new book and where have I been all this time.

I know,
it's been a while since you've heard me or someone else talk about this blog.
I've had many things going on in my life, I just turned 19 in June, with this so many things happened.
I graduated high school, that was the most exiting thing yet the saddest of my life, as expected after the exams I've never heard anything from my classmates, that was something I knew it was going to happen but I really hoped it didn't.
In Italy we have graduation exams (if you're interested on knowing more about school in Italy read this article) , if you don't pass them you can't graduate, and I had my last one on July, after that I had to start studying for my medical school admission test, which... I din't pass.
In Italy there are 68.000 people trying for just 10.000 spots, and I failed it. 
I had a lot of thinking to do, like what am I supposed to do with my life now?
I figured that I want to become a doctor, I really want this, so I'll start studying again and I'll do it next year.

It has been a difficult period of my life but now I'm ready for a fresh start.
I am a lot more motivated to start writing on this blog again and I thought about two series.
As you may know #NanoWriMo2019 is on it's way, I've never tried to write a hole novel in one month but this year I'll be joining NanoWriMo and I have a little series about #preptober to make, I want to tell you guys how I will be preparing for NanoWriMo as a beginner and I'll tell you all my secrets on how I outline my books and what do I do to prepare for writing. 
Know more about it on Instagram.
And the second series is about my new book which is in English and it's a motivational book, the title is hold on and I wanted to tell you some personal stories on why I started writing it, I mainly have three events that I want to tell you, three events that made me change completely.
If you're already interested on my book you can find it here, there are some issues on the formatting but this is mainly a book that you should have on paperback since it's interactive, you'll have space to write a lot of your motivational quotes, you'll be able to attach your pictures, yes, this book contains image, I'm still working on finding the best way to format it for the paperback version. 
If you are thinking about buying it right now, email me here the proof that you bought it and as soon as it will be out I'll provide you the formatted version and the first 5 to email me will have the paperback for free, this will last until December 31st.
Book reviews are coming soon, If you are following me for those. :)

I hope that you guys will stick up with me on my new journey, if you still want to be in contact with me follow me on my social medias. 
I hope that you'll understand why I haven't been active and see you on my new post.

Just another thing before you go.
All I would ask you just if you want, feel free to even close this article if you don't want to hear anymore is a small donation, as you could know having a blog is not free, I have to pay for the domain, I have to pay for your books and I will have to pay for the images that I would use for your covers, which is totally fine, if it wasn't I wouldn't think about doing it, I know I said that I have the bonus from the government but it won't last for ever, it's just for books and I have university to pay for.
This is not compulsory obviously and you don't have to do it in any means if you don't feel like it or if you feel like you are wasting your money, but if you enjoy my blog and you love everything that I am doing to help authors you can help me too with a small donation to my Paypal account which I will leave here: 
Klaren O'Connor
You can use the email, that's fine too, but the most important thing is that you don't have to do it if you don't feel like it or if you don't want to, I will still help as much as I can for as long as I can afford it. :)

How to write and publish a book.

Readers always come at the end asking to themselves if they would ever be able to write and publish a book.  Well, it is possible to write a book, and I can give you some suggestions right now. First of all you have to study the market a little bit, if you want to write a romance but everyone is crazy for horror at the moment, probably it's not the best time for it and your work need to wait or it won't be as succesful as you will want it to be. If the ''style'' that you are writing at the moment is successful then make sure that the story is original and it is not a copy of a copy. Do not make grammar mistakes. Avoid them, make sure that someone else reads the book for you and valutates it, if you want I can do it for you, check the services page to know how to contact me, someone should tell you if your book is good or it have no chanches.
Edit your book, I know averyone has been talking about if editing is useful or not and listen to me, yes it is.
The edito…

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…
