I am Irena (I.D. Blind), author of children's fantasy series, with a not very good 1st book and a more or less readable 5th book (yes, I am my worst critic, ha-ha!).
As you might have already guessed, English is not my native language. In fact, English is my third language (after Armenian and Russian). It's fair to say that writing books in a foreign language is an everyday struggle. 3 years ago, I realized that if I wanted to get somewhere in my career as an author, I needed to start writing in English. After 3 years of reading hundreds of books on writing, structuring, plotting, and editing, and after publishing 1400-paged fantasy series, I decided it was time to lend a helping hand to authors who, like me, write in a foreign language.
This is a place where I discuss writing, marketing, promotion, independent publishing, books and authors, as well as the gazillion mistakes I made throughout the first 3 years.
