Little Alf’s memoir to be published in German
Coming soon this October 2018...
Wow there is a title I never imagined to be writing one day! When I first became an Author in 2014 at 17 years old it was exciting, scary and completely mind boggling.
I knew nothing about the writing industry and still to this date don’t exactly understand it all, but that’s good it means there’s time to learn and make mistakes. When I first became an Author in 2014 I never imagined one day 4 years later it would have become my full-time career, but then again, I would have never imagined having my own Little Alf shop either or thousands of fans online.
It’s strange how life turns out, I hated writing at school but loved reading, I wasn’t particularly academic nor had I ever dreamed of becoming a writer but here I am with my 6th book being published next month it’s all a bit crazy and some times I think I’m living in a dream, but to get to where we are today there has been a lot of hard work and stressful times I often think back to being 16 years old and not having a clue as to what to do with myself and then even after my first books had been published there was nothing to determine if I could be an author full time. At the very beginning before my books got more known I was working 3 jobs, a waitress, a retail assistant and social media marketing Manager for an events company as well as writing on nights and plugging my books where I could. I suppose nothing really is plain sailing, but I’ve learnt to go along with the flow and I’m grateful for the difficult times as without them I wouldn’t have learnt new skills or knowledge I have today.
A few months ago, I found out Little Alf’s memoir would be published in German, I never even thought out my book being translated until my agent phoned me which was super exciting! A few weeks ago, I saw the book cover and it was crazy to see it in another language and new design.
The German edition will be released in October this year and I’m really interested to see the response from the public in another country and just to see how the whole publishing process works!
I’m probably most excited to get a paperback copy and show Alfie I know he will be pleased his story is going far and wide…
