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.

Threat to US elections not limited to Russia in 2020

May 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — Russia interfered in the 2016 election and may try to sway next year's vote as well. But it's not the only nation with an eye on U.S. politics. American officials sounding the alarm about foreign efforts to disrupt the 2020 election include multiple countries in that warning. Concerns abound not only about possible hacking of campaigns, but also about the spread of disinformation on social media and potential efforts to breach voting databases and even alter votes. The anxiety goes beyond the possibility that U.S. adversaries could directly affect election results: The mere hint of foreign meddling could...

NEW YORK — Two Americans and a British scientist won a Nobel Prize on Monday for discovering details of how the body's cells sense and react to low oxygen levels, providing a foothold for developing new treatments for anemia, cancer and other diseases.

Where have the wild birds gone? 3 billion fewer than 1970

May 27, 2020

WASHINGTON — A comprehensive study shows there are nearly 3 billion fewer wild birds in North America than in 1970. The new study finds that the bird population in the United States and Canada was probably around 10.1 billion nearly half a century ago and has dropped 29% to about 7.2 billion birds. Study lead author Kenneth Rosenberg, a Cornell University conservation scientist, says the thinning of the flocks is happening before our eyes but is so slow we don't often notice. Rosenberg and colleagues projected population data using weather radar, which captures flocks of migrating birds, 13 different bird...

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

May 27, 2020

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

May 27, 2020

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...
