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…

Designing your book cover for free.

Hey writers, how are you today?
As you may know I am all in helping authors to grow their platforms, in fact, as a lot of you know I am hosting some king of monthly giveaway in witch I help you promoting your book by reviewing it on this blog and suggesting it to some of my friends and to people that I think may love it, and if the book is so good it will have a permanent spot under my posts and a direct link to the purchase. 
Today I am offering an opportunity to all authors that haven't published their work yet and need some help in creating the cover. 
I have created my own cover for my first book, The last beat, because after I had payed a graphic designer he just got the money and never delivered the work, after I have told him that he was going to get sued he gave me my money back, so I am having a kind of hard time in trusting people on the internet again. 
This is why I am offering to you the possibility to have a free cover designed by me because after I got dropped by m…
