Elaine Lewis had it all. She had married a successful doctor with a brilliant future who loved her and would do anything to make her happy. She had a life that other woman envied. She was on top of the world, until she gave birth to a handicapped child. From the moment Stevie was born secrets from her past terrified her, almost to insanity. She refused to find room in her heart to love anyone. Her life became a living hell. Eventually, she had to face her past in order to save her future, but as her love changed so did everything else. When she made her choice it was almost too late. The challenge of life and all that it had to offer became the opportunity of a lifetime.
SALA,MORE THAN A SURVIVOR
Touching and inspirational story of Sala Lewis, who at age ten had been left alone to wander the streets, after her family had been taken away by the Nazis. Sala had been out with her friends when she came home to find her family gone and the apartment she lived in sealed off. Everything she possessed was no longer hers. She had no family, no clothes, no food, and at that moment in time no future. But Sala was strong willed. Even at a young age one could see Sala would not get lost in this world. She wouldn’t give up and she wouldn’t allow herself to be afraid. Even when she was taken away by the Nazis, she fought to stay alive. Her uncompromising determination led her to find the camp that her sister Dora was in. Once they were together nothing could stop them. To this day their love and commitment to each other is beyond reproach. They believed in the American dream and the land of opportunity. The proudest day of their lives was when they became citizens. They were more than survivors, they were Americans.
Hello, and welcome to our new blog. We’re here to help new authors get their books published.
My career as an author started because I began to independently publish books that had sat around in my drawer after traditional publishers rejected them. Since then, I’ve been able to have my work sold nationwide, and I’ve been able to do book signings and give talks about my work.
Based on that, I decided I wanted to help other new authors take their manuscripts from their drawers at home to bookshelves across the country. I get hundreds of e-mails each month asking for advice, and thought this blog would be a better way to answer everyone’s questions. Please feel free to post questions here, tell us your story, or e-mail us with questions that we can respond to on this site.
