Wow. Can I say enough? Absolute garbage in English. Maybe Hemingway in your own language ... but I doubt it.

Why have you entered the title as "No more normies: The first notebook" as opposed to "No More Normies: The First Notebook"? I understand it may have been a stylistic decision but there are rules of grammar that ought to be adhered to in publishing. If you are a big name you can get away with bending the rules because it is understood that you do have actual knowledge of the rules which you are breaking. With a new, self-published author, the likelihood is that you have no idea of the rules and never bothered to learn them, which is a sure way to turn readers away. Readers have certain expectations and one of those is correct capitalisation of titles.

From a brief look inside you have something about Harambe (RIP) and a sentence that says "Had I not been so drunk on alcoholics and melancholics..." I have no idea what melancholics means in this context. Alcoholics means people who are addicted to alcohol. The word you ought to have used in this sentence is "alcohol."

Edited for typo.

Oh, so it has to be with all words capitalized ? I didn't know that! Thanks for the tip.
The alcoholics melancholics is just word play, as if they were both substances. Alcoholics as in alcoholic drinks. Perhaps its a bit confusing but so is the book at most parts :D
