Then he discovered the ALC…
Don didn’t know if he should publish the book himself or secure an agent who would attempt to interest a publisher. The ALC’s webinars helped Don decide independently publishing would be the best path for him.
The ALC helped Don with more than finding the right publishing path. With the guidance of hundreds of webinars, Don is now equipped to market his book.
Don considers the ALC as a resource that has his back in continuing his passion to further his learning of the craft of writing historical fiction.
With the help of the ALC, Don was finally able to publish his book based on his Norwegian-immigrant father-in-law’s activities as a resistance fighter during Nazi Germany’s invasion and brutal five-year-long occupation of Norway.
“I advise authors to never give up on their dreams. Those dreams may be sidelined for a while by the ebb and flow of life, but always keep them. When a dream applies to writing, remember that a great many others have come before you and they are more than willing to share what they’ve learned.”
"A heart-wrenching and poignant story of bravery. An impressive debut; I loved it." —Robert Dugoni, New York Times bestselling author of The World Played Chess and the Tracy Crosswhite series
A young farmer turns into a courageous resistance fighter after Nazi Germany invades Norway and steals his way of life.
Bjørn Erliksen lives a peaceful life on Norway’s west coast and has never considered himself anything but a farmer. But when Nazi Germany invades, and his country’s ill-equipped military collapses in less than two months, it falls on him and other ordinary Norwegians to fight back.
He escapes to England, trains with an elite Norwegian special forces army unit, and is smuggled back into his homeland as a commando. When Bjørn’s resistance work eventually reunites him with a lost love, they join forces to carry out dangerous sabotage missions, all the while working in the shadows to evade the Gestapo. He weighs love against duty, wrestling with his own conscience as he is forced to commit unspeakable acts and unexpected betrayals. Can Bjørn survive long enough to see Norway’s liberation and find his own peace?
Filled with thrilling historical details about a corner of Europe often forgotten in the story of WWII, A Coat Dyed Black illuminates the struggles and sacrifices of ordinary people compelled to do the extraordinary.
