I am Albert Bart-Plange. I published my e-book a few weeks ago and I am excited to introduce myself.
The book reveals the struggles and successes of a young African immigrant to America. It pays much attention to lessons that could be drawn from those struggles. I believe if you are curious about the life of an educated legal immigrant to America, this is it. The story of my life. It sells less than a dollar for the next few days.

Thank you.

Albert-

I had a look at your book. I think the topic may be quite interesting, but you need a native American editor to clean it up a bit for you. There are things that need tightening to appeal to an American audience. For example, your first chapter isn't really a chapter or a start to your book. Your book really starts at Chapter Two. An American editor that is used to working with non-native speakers would be able to make adjustments for you without losing your style and voice.

All the best with it!
