My name is Constantine, and I serve as a book writing coach online for people all over the world.
Welcome to my world, where the fusion of diverse experiences shapes my unique approach to book writing and coaching. Hailing from the picturesque landscapes of Greece, my academic journey took me to the historical heart of England. There, at the University of London, I delved into the intricacies of European Studies, earning a BA that, while seemingly distant from the realm of book writing, laid a rich foundation for my future endeavors. My specialization in English, coupled with studies in Linguistics, Stylistics, Poetry, Drama, and crucially, Marketing, provided me with a well-rounded perspective—vital for navigating the multifaceted world of publishing.
My thirst for knowledge led me to the University of Bristol, where I obtained an MSc. Currently, I’m on an exhilarating journey towards a PhD in Education Policy, continually expanding my horizon.
Beyond academia, my heart beats for coaching. As a Certified Life Business Coach, Positive Psychology Coach, Solution-Focused Coach, Mindset Coach, Confidence Coach, and Transformational Coach, I find immense joy in guiding others to realize their fullest potential. My coaching ethos is infused with a blend of practical wisdom and transformative insights, aimed at empowering aspiring writers and individuals from all walks of life.
But that’s not all. My artistic soul finds expression through ‘The High Arts Review,’ my online arts magazine, where I indulge in reviewing books, classical music, and films. This artistic exploration enriches my perspective, continually fueling my creative endeavors.
Physical well-being is as crucial to me as mental and creative nourishment. As a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritional Coach, I embrace the discipline and vitality that come with physical fitness, believing in a holistic approach to life and creativity.
My journey as an author has been a defining chapter in my life. I’ve proudly authored an international best-seller on Amazon, diving deep into the nuances of Scrivener, a tool embraced by renowned writers globally. This experience, combined with a deep understanding of the self-publishing landscape, positions me uniquely to assist aspiring authors in their quest for success.
But why just read about my journey? Let’s connect! I invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation call with me on Zoom. It’s an opportunity for us to meet, exchange ideas, and embark on a journey of transformation together. I’m excited to hear your story and explore how we can turn your writing dreams into reality.
My Story as a Bestselling Author
My story isn’t your typical rags-to-riches tale. It’s messy, it’s real, and it’s mine. For years, I stood in front of a classroom, teaching English, my heart split between my love for teaching and a yearning for something more – something that was just mine.
My life was a ceaseless race against time – balancing the rigors of teaching with my personal passions: scribbling art reviews, pumping iron at the gym, and losing myself in the digital world. It was a blend of satisfaction and suffocation.
Then, the book “The 4-Hour Workweek” by Tim Ferriss landed in my hands. Call it a cliché, but it hit me hard. It was like it was speaking directly to that restless part of me. I’ll never forget staying up until 2 a.m., devouring every page. It was like a lightbulb went off in my brain. Tim Ferriss made me realize I didn’t have to settle for exhaustion and an empty creative well. I realized I was standing at a crossroads, and it was time to choose.
Energized with this newfound purpose, I became obsessed with soaking up everything I could about the mysterious world of self-publishing. Late nights of googling turned into connecting with a friend who was already in the industry. Before I knew it, we were running a humble little business, helping other writers publish.
But I wanted more. I started tinkering with Scrivener—possibly the most complete piece of software for writers—in my scarce free time, determined to master the writing software I kept hearing about. After months of experimenting and creating ugly first drafts, something clicked. I finally felt confident enough to write my own Scrivener user guide.
Squeezing writing time out of my jam-packed days was no picnic, let me tell you. My commitment wavered more times than I can count. Forty days and countless cups of coffee later, I had a manuscript ready.
But the gamble paid off. That day my Scrivener guide went live was one of the most magical of my life. Mere hours after I casually announced the book on Facebook, my phone rang with an unfamiliar number. It was a journalist who caught wind of my launch and wanted the scoop on my rags-to-riches self-publishing story!
Before I knew it, my Scrivener guide was a bona fide Amazon bestseller. The royalty checks still trickle in monthly, even though I’ve long stopped promoting it.
If I can transform from a disillusioned teacher to a successful self-published author, I know you can do the same. My winding journey has taught me that drive and perseverance conquer all.
