I would like to write a coming of age novel based on true life events I went through from the age of 11-16 growing up in a small beach town after my mother had passed and father remarried, and my brother and were faced with raising ourselves, so many moments to relay an express ( want to change names and thinking of using a pen name so I can separate this creative effort with my professional life and career). I need help putting together chapter outlines, I have ideas and some inspirations, I'm creative by nature and descent writer but not a novelist naturally. I feel my story can help others and want to get it self published. I'm a new media marketing specialist educated formally in that area so I can push it with getting PR, marketing and promotions once written. Need some help and direction on things. A book I'm reading an like the style of is called the gathering for reference.

Please send examples of past/present work.
