"Hi there! If you landed on this page, I can guess that just like myself, you are a self-published author, and either you are looking for a guide on how to write a book or searching for ways to promote it into a bestseller. In both cases, you would like to do it without spending any money. It's only fair! We write books to earn money, not to spend tons of it on advertising. Right?

So, my story short: 

I wrote a book, "Girl, Taken",
and self-published it.   
I got my own bestseller
on Amazon. 
I created my own system and used it.

"A few years ago, I was in the same place where you might be right now – excited about possible opportunities and scared of potential failures. I went through all the obstacles a new writer can only imagine. An immigrant with English as a second language, lacking connections, budget and experience, the only thing I had was passion for writing and endless willingness to be a published author. I will share with you all the steps I have taken that led me to the list of best-selling authors on Amazon. Together with Belka Books Press we’ll help you to become a successful author on each step on the way."

- Elena Nikitina, award-winning and self-published author of best-selling book Girl, Taken – A True Story of Abduction, Captivity and Survival / Belka Books Press founder
