    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by lightkeeper, Sep 19, 2011.

    Anyone working on or previously having written a semi-biographical novel?

    Yes, I have written a semi-autobiographical novel. It kicked around a bit
    in the publishing world before being picked up by North Atlantic Books in 2008.
    'The Hierophant Of 100th Street' is my story of a young man born in the
    worst slums of New York (Spanish Harlem) and who ventures out to discover
    the meaning of life, and finds romance, mysticism, and purpose behind its
    mystery.

    My advice to aspiring authors is never let any rejection stop you. Never let
    another define or validate you. Keep writing as writing is the voice of your soul.
    In the end Life will then validate YOU.
