Would you like to know about the journey to “Rock Your Au Pair Year“? It was kind of a rocky road, but definitely worth it! Come and find out how it came about!
The journey to Rock Your Au Pair Year
WHY DID I WRITE A BOOK?
I often get this question: “How did you first come to the idea of writing a book?” And to be honest I hardly remember. I started this blog, went to a “digital nomad event” and at some point had the idea for the book and just started writing. The first six months I was doing the “raw” writing and then I handed the first version of the manuscript to a couple of my friends. All of them had been Au Pairs before, so that way I made sure they could give me significant feedback and also point out which chapters needed more info or more research.
AFTER THE PROOF-READ
Another six months later I had reviewed and rewritten the entire book again. Due to various challenges that probably all new authors face as well as the fact that I was working a full time job, it took another 1 1/2 years until the book was published.
MY GOAL: PROVIDE ALL INFO
My goal had always been to answer every possible question you may have as an Au Pair as well as giving valuable examples and being completely honest.
I AM NOT SPONSORED
Without the support of an agency or a publishing house, it was my aim to create a very valuable and professional version of this book. I ran a kickstarter campain in April 2017, which failed, but as I had worked on this project for so long and I knew it was very valuable, I decided to find a way to finance it privately.
FEEDBACK PLEASE 😉
So far, I have received amazing feedback. Thank you so much for that and if you hold a copy, please write a review on Amazon!
