Helping aspiring authors turn coronavirus self-isolation into opportunity

In response to the coronavirus outbreak, Roslyn Franken launched a new author coaching program to help aspiring authors at home in self-isolation use this opportunity to get their stories out of their heads, onto the page and out to the world.

MIAMI & NEW YORK & PHILADELPHIA - April 7, 2020 - PRLog -- Roslyn Franken is an inspirational author, speaker, and cancer survivor. She knows first-hand the thrill of bringing books to life from conception to publication, a feeling she intends to help many aspiring authors experience with her new author coaching program.

Roslyn has met many people with powerful real-life stories that can bring tremendous hope, joy and inspiration to others at a time when our troubled world needs all the positivity it can get. They tell her how they want to write a book to share their stories, but have no idea of how to write a book or even get started. Roslyn discovered that most of these aspiring authors feel so overwhelmed at the thought of writing their books alone and the time and effort it would take, that their stories never get told thus depriving people from benefiting, especially those who need it the most.

To make more of these stories available, Roslyn helps aspiring authors by facilitating the writing and self-publishing process for them from start to finish so they can finally get their stories written and published, once and for all. Her program is conducted by phone, email and internet making it accessible worldwide regardless of geographic location.

For aspiring authors wanting to speak about their books, Roslyn can also help develop their stage presentation and speaking skills


Roslyn is the author of Meant to Be, a book about her parents' extraordinary survival, love and triumph over tragedy as Holocaust and atomic bomb survivors. She travels internationally telling the story to diverse audiences of all ages, cultures and backgrounds. Her book is being made into a movie that is currently in development.

In her earlier book, The A List, Roslyn shares the nine guiding principles for healthy eating and positive living she followed to win her battles with unhealthy food and weight issues ten years after surviving cancer. She is the co-author of Death Can Wait: Stories from Cancer Survivors and is the host of How to Thrive After 35, an inspirational podcast where she has interviewed authors including brand names such as Jack Canfield of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Previously, Roslyn worked for Hearst Publishing, a major New York publisher, where she represented hundreds of authors to book wholesalers.

Seoul unsure if North Korea will air World Cup qualifier

Jun 5, 2020

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend. "There has been no particular progress on the issues of (sending South Korean) cheering squads or providing broadcast coverage, so they won't be easy," since there's only a few days left until the game,...

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Jun 5, 2020

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

Jun 5, 2020

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...

HONG KONG — The Latest on Hong Kong protests (all times local): 7 p.m. At least three concerts by overseas performers have been canceled in Hong Kong as protesters forced the city's airport to suspend operations for a second day. K-pop star Kang Daniel and Scottish band CHVRCHES both announced Tuesday that they are calling off upcoming events. American singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin canceled an upcoming concert late Monday.

The airport protests are the...

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Jun 5, 2020

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...
